“Las Vegas is special city not just to me, my family and friends, but this whole world. It’s a shame to for the city to have to endure such an attack.

  1. If Michael Bennett had half the class of DeMarco Murray, he would at least match the donation to the LVPD.

  2. Very nice gesture DeMarco.

    Nice of the Raiders too, making a token contribution to a city that is building them a stadium costing hundreds of millions.

  3. The VICTIMS you clown! The VICTIMS!!!! This infuriates me! Last time I checked, DeMarco “the clown” Murray, you look like the type police MURDER in the name of justice! The VICTIMS you clown

  4. Classy. Wonder if ol’ Bennett has finally learned why police enter those situations very seriously and try to get control of it, then ask questions. Bet not

  5. It is likely that most of these victims support the distribution of weapons that were used to kill them and that these victims support police profiling of people that look like murray. A better use of his money, invest in the education of the children from the area you grew up in.
