We lost a good guy, I went to school with Chauncey and it is crazy he is gone.. over stupidity, Chauncey had this thing about him that commanded respect. You feared him and admired him at the same time sorta like pac or a lil black bruce lee, I am so sadden by this situation. I fear for our future Because of the nonsense that goes on in our community RIP Chauncey we are taking a great loss, cause fear and nonsense took you away from us... -MF

People listen there are always 3 sides to a story ! Chauncey Scott, Darrell Scott and the TRUTH ! Surely you don't think that this 25 year old man went looking for trouble ? So before we Judge someone get to know the facts first ! Starting with how some women can be VICIOUS ! Just because a dude drops you and don't want to be with you, doesn't mean you must lie and bring your family into your relationships. This whole thing was set up by the cousin. She caused her cousin death ! No need to say more the truth will PREVAIL ! Yes Chauncey was a good man, but is Darrell. If you back a DOG up in a corner he will also fight for his LIFE ! TRANAY THOMPSON THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT !
