Family pray each day that justice is served and ask you not to turn your head and pretend you didn’t just hear or see that, but instead report it.” It’s a tragedy that two daughters have to grow up without their father .One of the hardest things a family can go through is not knowing the reason this happened to their loved one. Someone somewhere knows something. Cop’s just need to find that person or persons responsible for Dhami’s death. The perpetrators are cowards for shooting someone at his home during broad daylight
