  1. i am Richard Summers, Sammy's little brother. I am 13 years old and i believe that the officer who shot and killed my brother had no right to shoot him. Sammy has never done anything so bad to die like this. he never meant to hurt anybody. and the officers have the nerve to say that my brother had a gun with him. i know my brother, and he would never hurt anybody. he may have broken into houses and stole things, and he had a big problem with drugs, but he had a big brain. he was the smartest person that i have ever met. he had such good grades in school, and he cared about his family and friends. but what messed him up was the drugs. if he never got into drugs, he would still be here today, living a great life. we all miss and love you Sammy!
