    No charges for the officer involved MVA like attempted murder, assault etc?

  6. Dennis Gray says:

    Let me get this straight… They provided the evidence to law enforcement that resulted in their own arrest on a capital murder charge? They live streamed a murder…?
    I need a minute…

  7. Dennis Gray says:

    Also, in the story, shouldn’t it be ‘gunfire not meant FOR him’ and ‘TWO Birmingham policemen were injured’?

  8. Don Philpot says:

    Probably been good boys all their lives
