      To Goffins comment..

      A Name DOESN’T say it all. My cousin was an excellent young man who was very smart and loved by his peers. He did NOT meet the typical stereotype u have embedded in your head based on “his name”.. As a matter of fact I know upper class people with normal names like Steve and Dan (for example) who are nutjobs. So before u make assumptions based on a boy who was at the wrong place at the wrong time.. Make sure you know all the facts before you place judgement! Rip and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my cousin Torshon Mcgoogin who was loved by many and will be missed by all of us. Gone but never forgotten!
