Jouelzy – “A Complex Conversation on Korryn Gaines”

I think I share in some of Jouelzy’s point of view in this video, I’ve been quiet on this subject, because there isn’t really enough information being provided other than what the police are saying and what a five year old child has said, for me to really give an objective opinion on the matter other than the fact that white male terrorist seem to be given some kind of invisible benefit of doubt (and I’m really reaching when I place this young lady in the same category as a terrorist) but if I’m going to play devils advocate and say she was a terrorist, why couldn’t she be “taken” alive like Dylan Roof and James Holmes who are proven murderers?

With the right amount of subscribers and popularity YouTube can become a big money maker. Now I’m not hating anyones hustle at all, get in where you fit in and make your money the best way you know how, but try to have some integrity and honesty.
