People have been telling me and my family “just let the courts and the detectives do their work. They haven’t said anything because cases like this takes time.” So we’ve been waiting and finally the State Attorney called us yesterday and NOW THIS. We woke up to this news that the person who killed my sister is no longer behind bars but is now on HOUSE ARREST! What kind of system is this? He NEEDS TO BE BEHIND BARS. This isn’t FAIR what we are going through. This isn’t FAIR FOR MY SISTER. How dare these people. THEY HAVE NO HEART THEY HAVE NO SOUL. We pray everyday for my sister and for STRENGTH to continue to fight for JUSTICE FOR HER. She was so sweet and the most beautiful little girl and he just took her from me and my family. God PLEASE HELP US. Please! #JusticeForGigi#JusticeForGigiBratz#blm#ItWasntAnAccident@mpdpolice •
