      So based on a quick internet search you feel safe judging this person? If he was “thuggy” does that mean it was okay for him to die, or maybe you just would not be as (sad faced) about it?

        Sheesh. Did you get out on the wrong side of the bed this morning??

          To be fair, the first comment is moronic and deserves satirical derision.

        I would not be sad at all about it. We need fewer thugs. The *only* (unintentionally) good thing thugs do is eliminate other thugs.

          delano was one of my three best friends that involved in this madness(leon,jeff,delano). He was in my lifetime the best friend a person could ever ask for. He was a kind hearted guy who always kept me laughing since we met in middle school. His life was tough and its a shame ended so soon.

    “Delano Wingfield, 22, has been grilling up food and cleaning dishes at Roti Mediterranean Grill in Washington D.C.’s Union Station for almost a year. Struggling to get by on $9 an hour, he started encouraging coworkers to strike with him. His manager found out, he said, and slashed his hours.”
