    its funny that you people that comment this can be even thinking bad things about either of them, you didnt know him so who are you to call him a thug. no mom should have to berry her some 2 weeks before mothers day. omar was an amzing person an a hella homie, soo he will be missed by many, an i hope that guy gets what he deserves. i would never stoop to his level an wish him death even tho he took my friends life, karma isnt nice, so i hope everything that comes your way makes you realize how much pain u have caused others.

    I've net omar once or twice and to think that he's gone now is crazy, just at the fact that i knew him and talked to him. even though i barely knew him seeing him at his open casket was hard enough and looking at a mother crying over her 17 year old son's death, no parent should have to bury they're children. my respects goes out to his family. Hey Omar Rest In Peace....the Memories will never die....

    This is so funny how evryone seems to believe they know exactly what happened that night. Before anyone else start posting comments about their beliefs ask yourself this one question.... Did I see Siree Samod Scales pull the trigger to the gun that shot Omar? Innocent until proven guilty... and my regards to omars family....

    all this way because someone was running there mouth. What if every time yall run yall mouth they shot you. And the OMAR was 110% incent an they shot him for what reason? And you know as well as i know the people there was just sitting there drinking an smoking an having a good old time an while they were fight yall was recording it or laughing at the fact HE WAS INCENT OVER SOME DRUGs.

    to ordnanceman i agree with you all the way, a young black male charged with murder what a shock, just like the craigslist killer a young white male charged with killing and hurting women and stealing there panties, crime comes in every color, every gender, and every age, .

    This is so sad,here we are again drawing whatever conclusion we feel most comfortable with without knowing all the facts. Some are so ignorant that they chose not to see what is right there in there face. Just the need to pick a side a good or bad, and people say they demand justice, but if proven not in your favor then a injustice has just been witnessed in your eyes. Who's looking for the truth anymore.How many people who have posted know BOTH men in question.How can you use the word thug for a child you have never met before. You don't look close or again you just see what you want. Looking at the comments some are making you have no respect for the dead. He's dead and all you have to talk about is the person that's accused lips. How ridiculous. How would you look on your mugshot being accused of first degree murder or even a DWI. Funny how when people die they were the best things on earth, alot were and alot weren't we just chose to portray that image.
