    My cousin wasn’t gang related. He was a hard working young man who did everything for his family. Rampart division is not doing anything to help my family there just trying to file it as gang related so they don’t have to do there job. These people are out there and who knows who they’ll kill next.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your cousin. It is just awful and I don’t even have to words to express what I want to say to you and your family. Hope they catch them.
