John Travis holt brother keeper It was all-to-easy for many to overlook the tragedy occurred Thursday, March 20, 2014 at 6:20 pm in Brooklyn, NY -- Kahton Anderson shot and killed Angel Rojas. Spirit And Blood.

Mr. Rojas – or “red” as in the color of his blood – was killed as his body fluid was senselessly spilled on the B15 bus in Brooklyn.
