  1. Neil, the part that you said doesn't make sense at 3:23
    I think what he was saying is that the other guy has the same model phone. That might be why he couldn't unlock it. He was trying to use his friend's phone.

  2. I grew up in Ramona, CA with Malcom and also with the gentleman who was murdered. Rest in Peace, Jay- and good luck, Malcom. Malcom is a sweet boy, just not the smartest, and he didn’t mean for this to happen.
