Aaron was a great kid. Man, he was well-liked. You can see with the pictures and if you had seen at his funeral, it was the biggest funeral I've ever been to. So I mean there's a lot of people that want to see justice here. Only a parent can describe their son with words like Michael Roseberry uses to explain how much he loved his son.

He was always calling Dad. You know, Dad did this and Dad did that for him. If he had survived this, I would've been the first person he would've called.
