Rest Easy Bruddah… Something about this whole story seemed odd, then after recent news to get hit with this curve ball. Still don't see it but maybe that's still my bias opinion. At end of day we have One Judge, He Also Knows Truth. So I will not attempt to judge but Hope Meet You Both One Day. R.I.P. Chico
The devil is so busy now these days woke up to very sad news 😢😢
