He obviously had demons. You could always tell when he fought. Even in interviews he always seemed angry. Hopefully he finds the peace in death he couldnt find in life.

gimme a break.

everyone makes mistakes, not everyone ends up addicted to crack, stealing cars, and overdosing in a jail cell...this result is left for the true fsck ups.
I see what you are saying. I guess as a fan its hard not to feel for the guy though. I will also say that Im not too surprised. I know that he got into alot of street fights before he went pro, and was considered a bit of a thug.

You can not feel sorry for him if you want, but the situation doesn't warrent you voicing your opinion on it. Some things can go unsaid. Its a shame that his potential has been wasted.

My condolences to his family, it's a shame to see a life extinquished by stupid actions, like hitting the crack pipe and OD'ing.

I'll say RIP, just because it's still a life lost and I think he deserves as much, even though it's evident he was a f**k up.

Obviously when someone dies and you feel it was for the best because they were dangerous they do not deserve to rest in peace.

Should I tag that with [sarcasm/]?

I have sympathy with him BECAUSE of that. Drugs are hell. (I also have sympathy with all the thousands of prople who die in Rio DeJaneiro because of crime and violence, just aint right).

But well, he did this to himself and had it coming.... still tragic...
