  1. Took this long to release a sketch? WTF APD? was it being drawn on a little kid’s Etcha-Sketch toy?

  2. No RjB the guy who did the shooting was unavailable at the time to be sketched he had to reschedule. LoL

  3. From the father of the victim, I can’t help but agree.

    But we still need to question more. If which, Who’s friends of who…even on social media.

    As elected officials are people too.

  4. My son was name David Dewey Whitfield-Pearson as he was a young Black America male kill by a white on black hate crime. ADP has more on details of the victim, as all lives are essential and Black Lives Matters
