[Quote] The drone moves through the living room and kitchen and then turns toward a short hallway. A man, identified as Rhynes, pokes his head out of a doorway and raises a hand while saying something that can't be heard on the video. Rhynes withdraws into the room and then emerges a few seconds later wearing red shorts with white stars and no shirt and with both hands in the air.

Yes, what say you, tasteful friends?

I have never heard of this actor before. When I read he was murdered I went to his IMDb. Have never watched a thing he’s been in, either movies or TV.

Why did they fly a drone into his house? I assume they had a warrant. If so why not just barge in like they always do?

Pour vous, r12

[Quote] Byrd was nominated in 2003 for a Tony award for his performance in the Broadway revival of 'Ma Rainey's Black Bottom,' co-starring Whoopi Goldberg and Charles S. Dutton.
