Candle light vigil for Rolland “Rocky” Miller turns out hundreds of friends

Tuesday evening, hundreds of Rolland “Rocky” Miller’s friends paid tribute to him in front of the family home where he was killed.  Last Friday Miller, 44, was shot and killed by an unknown acquaintance in what appears to be a robbery.  Although Miller was from the neighborhood, Miller was not active gang member and his shooting had nothing to do with gangs.

The motive appears to be a personal dispute that escalated to a robbery, and there is absolutely no evidence that gang identity play a role in the shooting. Miller was known throughout Southern California by people from all segments of society including Crips, Bloods and Mexicans. He was the co-founder of Hogg Life, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle club, and has been instrumental in several gang intervention organizations including UnityOne, and 2nd Call.

  3. PeaceMaker

    I was just at the viewing, and it was so so sad, to see a Peace maker laying there. It hurts to see Rocky’s kids have to go through this pain. The only thing left to do now is catch the ki*ler. Someone out there knows what happened. Please come forward for the family.

      I think that this whole gang thang is stupid. Gangs don’t help us they just bring us down and if these young men and women would open their eyes and see that what they are doing and what they r going orthugh aren’t not worth losing they’re lives either by being ki*led or getting put behind bars for ever its sad what the youths today are doing to be accepted..
