    Can't wait to see if the toxicology report enforces those juicy racial stereotypes we all love! :)

    Friend linked me this earlier and my only surprise was that it took so long. I'm sure there will be some conspiracy theory about the cops finally getting him or something but the dude is from the hood, by hood standards he was an old man.

    They believe it is a simple drowning? (Insert joke about black people not being able to swim)
    I don't know though... I'd also like to see the toxicology reports, who drowns in their own pool?

    It seems kinda sketchy to me simply because it says his fiance called about it and that officers pulled him from the swimming pool. I'm sorry, but if I walked into my yard and my boyfriend was floating face down in the pool the very first thing I would do would be to jump in and pull him out... not leave him there for the cops to pull out in twenty minutes or so when they showed up. Once I pulled him out I'd call 911 so they could send someone and tell me what to do, but I wouldn't just leave him there while I made calls and waited on people. What if he wasn't all the way drowned yet and could still be saved? If I didn't do anything I would always wonder what if I could have saved him, and what if he died while I was waiting for someone to show up to help.

    Toxicology report don't mean squat people 'party' at the pool all the time. He's dead so let it go.

    RIP

    You make a very valid point here. I could see her going after the money.
    RIP indeed Mr. King. Fuck the police.

    ^^^ Yeah, seriously. Who sees someone they love floating face down in a pool and doesn't immediately pull them out? Or at least flip them over and check for a pulse.

    He was an addict, many don't make it to 47 years old. I'm still digging out the roots of my addiction which is very painful. My greatest fear is getting high again or committing suicide.

    Likewise here. I used and abused for 20 years and with 25 years C&S, I can say I may be half way to where I would have been had i not been an addict.
    I'm only one use away from going right back to what it was like 25 years 7 months ago. willpower doesn't have anything to do with getting clean and sober.
    It does, however, take an immense amount of won't power.

    I read the article on the NY Times and a snippet from it quickly became my email quote.
