  1. I believe he did the right thing and kill Billy Smiley. I know Mr. Smiley, and give me the creeps. If he was rapping little kids then he needed to die. Because, the kinds that he rapped will never be the same. They will think it’s okay to let men touch them in the wrong place, and it not okay.
