Justice for Bobby Barnes
He fought valiantly for seven months, but the injuries he sustained while being punched, kicked and beaten with a hammer, a piece of wood and other objects were too much to overcome.
After emergency brain surgery, he remained in a vegetative state until his Nov. 25 death.
Bobby was a sensitive, kind man with a great sense of humor and a penchant for helping others before helping himself. That kindness extended to homeless people, as well. Bobby's death has left an emptiness within his family and beyond.
While the case against Bobby's attackers remains in the judicial system, we need financial help to defray the costs of his funeral. We also hope that something positive can come from Bobby's death and will soon launch a campaign to provide the homeless in Philadelphia with sneakers and boots as the cold winter months approach.
Any monies raised through this campaign will be used to give Bobby the funeral arrangements befitting a man who was taken from this world unnecessarily at the hands of criminals and to help launch the shoes for the homeless campaign in his honor.
Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and please keep Bobby in your thoughts and prayers.
I was just notified that my Brother Bobby's gofundme acct was not working. I just fixed it to accept donations.
Thank You so much for all your support during these difficult times.
Sneakers/Boots for the Homeless in honor of Robert "Bobby" Barnes
People vote out all these anti firearm nuts out of office, today everyone needs to carry to protect themselves...dont become a victim......you never know when something like this can happen to you....people at that station should be ashamed that not one customer tried to stop and help this man........I would have done everything in my power to help this guy and stop the attack....
I wish I was there.I would have beat all them "B's" down and their kids. Look at the big punk walking up and not doing anything. He is no man. They need to fry them B's. he didn't do anything. I always tell the truth and tell people why lie. The words you speak is what makes you . Tell the truth. This little boy got a man murdered and his mom that stupid move was on her and the rest of them "B's". Screw that black punk walking up . He should have stopped them. Damn I wish I was there, I would have gladly caught a case
Daniel, that is the stupidest thing I have ever read in my life. Why even bring your sorry racist a** on this page?? This is about a man who lost his life for no reason and your over there spewing racist hate slurs. You sir need to wake up and realize crime/murders have no race. The only thing I can do for you is pray that you realize your racism hatred towards individuals is completely uncalled for and cruel. I'm very sorry for the lost of your brother like this and this racist post on your page.
Did these women go to prison?
