    1 kyle was murdered by washoe county sheriff deputys
    1 kyles son,kylan has been born,but will never get to know his daddy.
    1 because wcso riddled kyle with bullets murdering him.
    1 kyle did not show a gun,or shoot at the officers.he opened his door and they killed him.
    1 im sure it haunts them everyday,as it should.the da s office needs to do the right thing,
    1 and prosecute for murder,instead of justifying the shooting.its been almost 7 months,
    1 and the da s office still hasnt received everything to make their decission,but when they do
    1 if its justified,im told it eill go to the supreme court,and that kyle will not die senceless death
    2 in vain,and that something good must come out of this,and his mom will make sure it does.
    1 I was the passenger and watched them take my cousin from me I keep asking myself why
    1 I'll never forget how true you always were you taught me to skate ride a dirt bike
    1 and to go hard with everything I did I miss you so much bro I can't believe how
    1 long we've been without you and when you died so did a piece of me
    1 I'm glad I was with you until the very end cuz you are the realest person I
    1 have ever known I got the car we were working on fired up today and took it on a rip around
    1 slamming gears I'm hoping to get the beat in the trunk soon and
    1 finish what we started it still doesn't seem real to me I'm looking at
    1 our old texts just wishing I could call you again I'm so glad we kicked it so
    1 hard in those last three months before your life was stolen in vain I'll never be the same and you
    1 didn't deserve it your style lives on and you had so much talent with everything you touched
    1 you would make it look easy when it really wasn't I could
    1 go on and on for days you were always the realest dog even up to the very
    1 last breath you took you weren't even thinking about yourself I'll
    1 never forget out last ride rest in peace fam
    1 I'll keep it as real as I can down here in the meantime till we meet again
