Starred in several of the movies I just watched (Up In Smoke, Thank God It’s Friday, and Car Wash), I wondered, well where is this talented character, who seemed to do it all, dancing, joking, singing. Well, he’s dead that’s where. And while I was expecting AIDS or drugs it turns out death by cops.

Neighbors called in complaining of him chanting all day long, perhaps rehearsing, perhaps loaded up on something. The Wikipedia page says “fevered for days” – I have no idea what that means but that unfortunately he took blows from police batons as he would not comply with the police. So the report says. Report also says he “cursed” them.

What a loss! The man was clearly headed places and had been working on a television show or two.
