  1. Seems to me that Sadel Delvon Wilkes is probably just another product of a black single mother household.

    1. Sooooo when will the terrorists from Black Thugs Matter protest this crime committed by this creature?

      It’s probably just another case of cops profiling this poor innocent guy only because of his color.

      Have no fear. With the ultra liberal Bay Area judges he will be out on bail in a day and on parole within a week.

  2. “[…] felon in possession of a firearm.”

    If he’s a convicted felon then why was this feral creature out of prison and on the street shooting people? Which judge paroled him??

    Only 25 and already a sheet mile long.
