I can understand why you made this comment, but let me assure you -- Jonathan Finlelman was not destined to to get himself killed. There are many parties to blame, but most of the blame is on the shooter and the others involved in this crime. Jonathan was actually a dear, sweet young man, who did not have the opportunity to overcome the foolishness or irresponsibility of his youth. Don't make yourself feel better by thinking that all kids involved in drugs are headed down the same path. The duty to save them from themselves involves all of us -- and we can save many if we have the courage.

Drug dealers and buyers are a most untrustworthy bunch.

you take the chance when you buy or sell that you'll get paid with hot lead.

This kid had it coming to him. When you deal in drugs, these things happen. People get killed, jacked, jealous etc. I sold drugs for 10 years, I was shot at, stabbed, family was threaten, the whole 9. You have to hold your own weight in this game. if you ask me Mr. Finkelman has only himself to blame. He choose to play game and this game has no rules. I'm always strapped when I do a deal and always looking over my shoulder for something to happen. He played the game like he was playing Grand Theft Auto or something. This kid had everything but wanted to be hip. He has his own self to blame. If my parents made over a hundred thousand a year when I was 14, 15 no way you would find me selling drugs. I had no parents growing up, so the streets was my playground. No sympathy. I have seen many on my friends die in this game. all I can do is pour out a little liquor. The game stops for no one
