Douglas was a nice kid in school, but made some bad decisions. He was expelled during his senior year for dealing weed from his locker, but was allowed to graduate with his class. I had hoped he would go to college and get on track. I feel for his close friends and family.

Sincerely Annoyed

Did you really have to put that out there? That’s completely irrelevant! A simple “my heart goes out to his family” would have been just fine but instead you try to bring up negative things about the boy and make him look bad… Smh Check yourself!!


So that means he had to pay the ultimate price because he dealt weed?
