A complete loser who probably things he's beyond cool and tougher than tough. I hope he has some kind of conversion experience that sets in on a path of life instead of more degradation and death. He obviously has had potential before he got lost in attitude.

Golly Gee!! Another

Golly Gee!! Another rap-related 'personality' charged with a crime! Obviously it is all part of the vast right-wing conspiracy to discredit rising leaders in the minority community. Charles Manson was just the first victim of this giant cabal.
Rise up and 'fight da power'...

Shawty Redd? That is too

Shawty Redd? That is too funny!!! Look at that guys mug shot, too funny!!! Good for him, helps his street cred and he will be able to make more money thanks to this. I think this guy is a fine role model for inner-city youth. Maybe we can arrange for him to lecture at Cherry Tree Crossing upon his release?

He already looks like someone's BI--H. If he doesn't have any experience in that role I'm sure he will while in prison. Either that or be offering to produce lots and lots of inmates music to buy his way out of it. Funny how those things work. Expect lots more criminal "artists" in the business.

Wow Brad, what a difference a

Wow Brad, what a difference a few days make. So because of his actions you are able to paint the residents f CERRY Tree with that same brush? I wonder did you make the same comments about Parsons and Bowers giving a lecture in their Columbia County neighborhood? No, I guess that they will just host a Tea Party. Unbelievable!!!!!!

ispy, Brad should apologize for attempting to "paint" Cherry Tree Crossing (not f CERRY Tree) residents as anything less than successful citizens supporting themselves, not living off the fruits of others. Oh, wait.

Shawty looks like one too. I didn't know it was a guy until the word "he" appeared in the article. He/she will make someone in prison a wonderful wife.

This is the music of the

This is the music of the street and represents the people of the street. Folk music, which rap surly is, is all about social trends and current lifestyles. It reflects the times in which it is written and performed. The people who are living this life are involved with all phases of this music and all phases of the street life are represented. It's no different than any other style of music, from this perspective. Rap is the music of the underbelly of society and anything can be reflected. Shawty Redd is the rule that proves the exception.

I agree with you COBALT, the Parsons and Bowers way of life and culture will never change.. So old wise one Johnston, Patty, Pee Diddy or whatever your name is. What music was mom and son listening to in Columbia County. Country, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal or Easy Listening?

CLEANUP. Clean up your own

CLEANUP. Clean up your own house before worrying about others. The mom and son situation in Columbia County shows that it is not about where you live but how you live. There but for the grace of GOD goes I. Repeat that a few times.

Ispy, it takes more that one incident in Columbia Co. to even compare it to the tens and hundreds that occur at the hands of the other segment.

Andy, you are right. It takes hundreds to add up murders one by one, unlike a " Certain segment", that kill by the tens and hundreds. I get it. Thanks.

Ispy, you can attempt to spin

Ispy, you can attempt to spin it any way you like. Mass murderers only come around once or twice in a decade. Chris Rock put it best when he said, "When I go to the ATM at night it's not the white media I'm afraid of. It's N#$$#$#." If I go to the ATM in Richmond county, I'm not worried about Ted Bundy or Jeffery Dahmer lerking around the corner. I'm worried about crack head Eddie and wanna be gangsters. Also nothing is more dangerous than the daily crime that happens in this area. Do you seriously worry about being killed by a white serial killer or a cheap dime store thug? I guess you don't read the news.

I'm willing to bet that if you add up all of the murders committed by those you named vs. the current prison population of people in for murder you'd have Thousands more than your little list had committed.

Yeah and whites only commits murder one a decade. You and Chris Rock can spin it any way you wish. While you and he are looking for the " N" I am just looking out for all robbers regardless of color. Amazingly, I wonder how often you quote that famous advisor, Chris Rock? I guess you listen to get your fill of the " N word"?
