    No one has commented on the fact that this BOY this CHILD has commited such a terrible crime. But i will. I am the mother of Tray Shermans son, lil tray. I hope that you and everyone involved with you understands just what you have done. I now get to explain to my son why his daddy isn't coming home. You decided to play god and take someones life with you own hands. And you had no right. I hope you pay for the rest of your life. And never forget how many people you have hurt. Not just tray family but your own. Many people may not want to say these things to you but it doesn't bother me to. Just like it didn't bother you to take someones life over stupidity and ignorance. Now you will pay with your life just like he had to pay with his. I hope his face haunts you in your dreams. To bad you will never read this. Maybe someone will read it to you!!
