Tariq: Killing someone is always a real decision. Even carrying a gun is a real decision. He doesn't want to own up to it, and he's just mad that people hate him for it. But people will always hate you for what you do. You can't care about that.
Lauren: But in the end he's killed because people didn't like how he reacted to his mother's death.
Tariq: People didn't like him because he shot the guy. He was killed because he committed a murder. He knew what he was doing, he knew the consequences. He still pulled that trigger. He did it anyway.
