MUSKEGON, Mich. — Robert Earl Gee was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole Wednesday for the murder of Jake Rameau, accourding to Muskegon County court officials.

    Another black male illegally carrying a concealed weapon that was stolen as a convicted felon and killing someone. When will the hard working law abiding blacks get sick of this crap going on in their communities and do something about it?
