  1. Being from Texas
    I can say people need to mind their own business and keep their opinions and noses out of Texas justice
    Don’t mess with Texas !
    R.I.P Mr.Byrd
    Sleep well and at peace
    The men who hurt you are getting their punishment
    And my condolences to the King family
    (Not John William King) But his family they too also lose someone tonight

  2. Good riddance may he burn in the worst part of the hellfire for all of eternity. P.O.S💩
