    This story does not past the smell test; so much personal info on the deceased but only sketchy details concerning the perpetrators. Law enforcements reaction is vague concerning apprehending these murders and yet the sheriff has attributed it all to gang violence and rap music. He talks about there ” culture ” as if it’s a justification for their brutally murder. What about the hate /white supremacy culture that is so apparent at UNF? Is there possibly a connection? This is really funny and am not laughing .
