  1. I'm curious.Can someone provide this answer for me? Of all the 12 killings, 50 rapes and numerous burglaries that were performed by this individual, how many of these crimes were closed out by the Californian law enforcement agencies if any by blaming them on other individuals and if so, how many of these individuals were men of color.

  2. I would play him his own tape of saying that "I'm gonna kill you" as I'm giving him the final lethal injection dose. 💉💉💉 If I was the judge presiding over this case.

  3. I hope somebody is interested and raping his ass soon as he gets in jail I really and truly do I hope somebody finds him interesting to be raped so he can see exactly what he put all them women through hell we don't know he might have Boys 2

  4. Always a military vet. Their released to the military and their lawyers get their charges dropped. In hopes of them getting better jobs. They never are going to say, but L.A. has been dealing with hit and runs of teens in the last few months that are still unsolved.

  5. I'm noticing how the news not giving him no kind of brakes I'm wondering why not. Maybe because he was hurting possibly people of his own rights and kind and for that jerk that like to put race and everything this is a look at you and your own face to tell you how your own people hurt your own self just like the rest of everybody else I hear that hurts each other the FBI and SBI you don't know s*** about that the government's never going to let you know a real number or a statistic on what's going on you dumbass just want

  6. Pertty lil Wyte ladies didn't even have nobody to save them s*** he would have called my phone talking about I'm going to kill you I'm going to kill you I would have met up with his ass in that one good bullet form straight to the Dome

  7. Sad thing is this guy will never be executed. And I would like to know what finally led investigators to suspect him. And did him being a police officer in the past serve to deter the investigators
