Ok for starters piss on the media for not telling the truth about this situation. The boys were drunk and some started playing with gas. The boy facing the charges was the only sober person there and flicked his lighter for a cigarette over 5 feet away from them burn victim. It was a freak accident and it is punishment enough that he is responsible for his best friend dying. The kid makes good grades and has never been in trouble. Now they wanna try and screw his life over.

now you're the one who needs to get the facts straight. they weren't playing with gas, they were huffing it and the one who "flicked" the lighter had been taunting the boy and with it. you say he's a good kid, if he was so good, why was he out there drinking or with others drinking at the age of 15. if you do the crime, you should pay for it regardless of your age.

And what's his crime? I know what they was doing. And to be honest with you, if someone I know spilt gas on themselves while huffing gas I would taunt them to. It was dumb thing do period.

his crime is negligent homicide because of his actions and the boy dying as a result of it. if someone spilled gas on them and you taunted them with a lighter saying that you are going to light them on fire then i would hope they would arrest you and charge with negligent homicide too!

He wasn't taunting him. Screw the dumb shit who are you to judge him or anyone. He's a good kid who is the victim of a freak accident. The media and ignorant people such as yourself make him out to be a serial killer. Best thing you can do is keep watching news at 5 believing the lies and trusting the police.

i do know this kid and he's not as good as you're makin him out to be. it was a freak accident but none the less, he is responsible and should be punished. i don't rely on the news media, i know the facts! i never said he was a serial killer so now its you who is being ignorant, and he was taunting him and he admitted that he was. i guess you think the victim's parents should just get over it and not want their son's murderer punished. regardless if its an accident or not, he's action killed his friend and their son.

he needs to be punished for his crime. at least negligent homicide is better than being charged with 1st or 2nd degree murder.
