Hi RoyThanks so much. Its just so horrible when a kid has a miillon in one chance of getting himself out of the poorest Ghetto after working so hard for so many years, just to be killed my a jealous coked up gangster with nothing going on in his life. And all about a minute conversation Ronny had with his girlfriend.
