  1. 2:02: why does he smile when he mentions the inmates like that?? To survive in jail, races stick together. It's true. Even in foster care……. or juvenile detention centers… it's true. ***** just imagine the kids, teens that have no one to relate to, predominantly whites.

  2. Doesn't matter if he was … murder is murder. And unless your a PEDOPHILE…. No one should be murdered

  3. That's a pissy excuse because they DO separate gangs affiliated inmate's. And former or not…..
