First of All Adan WAS NOT throwing up gang signs and he WAS NOT wearing any gang colors. NONE OF YOU PEOPLE ON HERE EVEN KNEW ADAN SO HOW CAN YOU JUDGE BASED OFF WHAT THE NEWS PAPER WRITES. YOU ALL ASSUME IT'S GANG RELATED AND MAYBE IT WAS ON JERRY LEE'S PART. I say the ones complaining are just as bad as the gangbangers becuz you are so cold with your words even when someone dies. Regardless a gangbanger is going to answer to God and so will YOU. RIP ADAN RUBIO

Well you know what glad 1 less gang member on the street. But no reason to cheer retaliation is gonna happen . I live on these gang streets but in no way am i affiliated and trust me when i say this innocent blood will be shed. I went to school with Adan the kid that died. I feel bad that hes gone. but his fault for choosing the wrong path.

Perhaps you need to stay in school.

To learn to spell
To learn to write
To learn the consequences of your actions - oh sorry - your parents should have taught you that. Guess the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree here ...

Stupid negro!

Then there's that WOW character, that pretends to know exactly what somebody else was or wasn't doing when he wasn't even there.

I say: KILL'EM ALL and let god sort 'em out.

This WOW character is right here and I am a she. I am related to Adan Rubio. I never said I was there. "Stupid Negro" your just as stupid for even going there. I am totally sure God will sort your ass out to. Sort your ass right to Hell along with the rest of us. Cracker Jack Jerk Face.

[First of all my brother the father of this supposely scumbag is a Army Vet and has been working for the Government for over 25 years. He owns 2 homes in that sorry neighborhood. He has never had to live off Section 8 or food stamps. How dare you call my Nephew a scum bag. He graduated from High School and was planning on joining the military as well. My family is a generation military Vets who have fought and some given their lives for people like you.

If that's the life you choose, it will always be filled with rumors, innuendo, complications and misunderstandings.

He should've stayed in school, or got a job rather than play gangsta.

WOW, are you saying you are a family member to Adan? Were you there at his wake?? I was. His mother was heart broken.
OKay I know many of the kids that were there. Including my own. Many of them knew Adan since he was a baby. My family member was Adan's godmother.
First of all Jerry was in a gang called GD ~ Gangster Diciples. Adan was not in the Kings. He had friends that were. He was being harrassed by Jerry all year. That is where the friends of his came in. In February Jerry and his punk friends beat the crap out of Adan. They broke all his car windows out last month. They broke out the house windows of Clara, Adans mother. The day after he killed Adan the punks kept riding by the house and calling her up. They don't think it's fair that one of their bang-gangen boys is going to jail for killing this kid so now they transfer the threats to this broken grief sticken mother. The day before the wake they came and pounded on her door and looked her in the face and turned around and left. She had to change all the funeral arrangements to keep her and her other children safe.
Adan, still a child, was barely 5 foot. Jerry was a big beefy man, who kept banging into him at school and pushing him around. When all year long Adan was avoiding Jerry's confrontation at a school yard that I don't even know how this punk thug was able to hang out at. It wasn't enough that he beat the hell out of this kid a few months ago. Or that he terrorized the family and breaking their windows. Sending his thug friends to his house while his mother was making the funeral arrangements. Everything I just told you is true. I was there. His friends and family feel he was looking for protection from his friends that were actually still kids but riding with a gang. Because nobody else could protect him, not even at school. If you could see what I saw at the funeral you would feel the pain all around. And now I'm sure this will generate gang rivaly. Actually it did the very next day when Jerry's gang started in on the poor mother.

these criminals so called gang bangers r bunch of idiots killin eachother for "COLORS" and "NUMBERS". For territory that dosent even belong to them. If ur in a gang the only place you'll end up is in a casket or in a cell, the only way you'll be alive is if god is giving you another chance to live. i know rubio was never a latin king but he did hang with the wrong people.All the time he was hanging around with kings on 8th and jackson which is kings hood. when your in a car with kings and their flashin gang signs obviously the shooter is gonna think "these people are gonna jump me" so he blasted random shots, and sadly one of the bullets hit adan. a bullet dosent have a name on it. so all im sayin is pick your friends carefully cuz its a cold world.

Yes, I'm that sick of the gangs.
You dumb ass, the down side is all the innocent people that get caught in cross fire! Maybe next time if it was you or your child who was watching TV. in the room and someone goes in to check on him or her only to find that a stray bullet has hit them in the head. Bullets donít have names on them!
