To Mike from Akron, OH, it doesn't matter if they paid taxes or not, no one deserves to die that way. Who are we to judge someone. they are three young epople who have families who loved them, and that's all that mattered. Only God can judge them. I don't know them but they are still human beings and i wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. Thank you and have a miserable life.

Mike, maybe you should keep your rude comments to yourself. If you had any sense then you would of known that Lajoy Alford actually worked 3 jobs and was helping to pay for your food stamps each month....She was also a single mom raising a beautiful baby girl so I would think twice before you start talking again.

Ignorance is bliss!!! To the Hamilton Family, true condolences from my family to yours. Society needs to wake up and understand lives have been taken here. Past is past...but they have been robbed of thier futures. Whatever the reason they went there it didn't warrent their deaths especially in such a hanis way. God bless any heartless individual who has ignorant comments on this issue.

I know these loved ones that had there lives cut off at such an earl age. Shaynese is my cousin, and I know the very ones that dont know the Lord is going to make ignorant comments. But thats ok because I'm praying for you to. Mike remember that when you are walking in our shoes one day. Might be sooner than you think. Think about it.

People keep cutting Mike apart. How about starting to hold people accountable for their actions. If these people were decent upstanding citizens then I can assure you they would never have put themselves in this situation. If she was a great mother then why was she with thugs in Detroit? Shouldn't she be home with her kid?

We don't know what they were there for. So for those who assume that every time someone gets killed and they are black, be careful how you profile people.

Let's use Mike for an example, just because he says ignorant things may not mean he doesn't have feelings. I'm sure if it were someone in his family, he wouldn't say anything like that.

Better it is to stay quiet and let people think you are a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
