Valdez is charged with an open count of murder, three counts of child abuse, four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, shooting at a motor vehicle and negligent use of a deadly weapon. If convicted as charged, the man faces life in prison. Well we have a winner here.....

Well knowing the court system the charges may change to hunting without a license and then charges dropped because he is the sole surviving son.I think the evolution process reached its peak years ago and is now on the down swing.

Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico.

Of course any decent person would have left that party when the fights first began so who really cares if those who hung around got shot.

Bloomfield, Blanco and Farmington are little Mexico ruled by Mexican mafia and drug dealers. Valdez was a known drug dope and alcoholic, who has no regard for the lives of people around him. His family has ties to Mexican mafia, they can kill each other on the spot. Police have looked away for years letting fiasco continue. The court will let him off or they will go after the judge and DA and their families.

I grew up in the good ole town of Bloomfield and believe me there were never no news like whats been happening there now days. His parents are probably people i went to high school with and back then the Valdez were very descent people and along with all the other people in Blanco, so i dont think bloomfield of any of that area is anything like Mexico or full of Mexicans. These are just kids growing up in society now days and with so much violence and alcohol its sad to hear this tradgedy and its so that i have a 20yr old and a 22yr old both boys and they are best friends, and i still hang on to them and pray for them everyday so all this family needs right now is our prayers, its just a freak accident and im sure they were best friends too. Dont make it any worse for the Valdez family.

I wish they could just get rid of all the murderers no matter the race. Why do they sit in jail building their muscles & having a vacation while the rest of us have to work our butts off to pay for their incarceration with our tax dollars? The government would spend less money if they did.

$100 bucks says he's illegal and will never go to trial. We all must remember that he's like everyone else in this situation, it's not his fault, it's the gun.

I was with a cousin of these young men yesterday helping my son and his friends buy clothes for homecoming. I felt horrible for this kid having heard that his cousin was killed via cell phone in the middle of the Coronado Mall parking lot. Society is so twisted that they forget that a life has been lost here. Standing on your soap box waiving your finger about a life that's lost and calling it justified because he's hispanic is disgusting. That's is precisely what makes me sick to be a fellow american to trash such as yourselves...
FYI, this comment is being made by a very white woman.

Last names can be handed down for so many generations, that the holder of that last name may be as white as me, or many of you making these awful hateful comments.
I have seen about as many, obviously Native Amaricans with traditionally Hispanic last names. I have seen many cacausian looking people with Hispanic last names also.
These boys may look Hispanic, Native Amarican, or Caucasion,but it is irrelivant. A young man took his brothers life through stupidity.
I would assume this is going to be very hard on every one involved. Show a little compassion, because no matter the race this family needs prayers not racist comments.

Hey that shotgun blast woke me up and I that it was someone shooting a skunk or something blowing up. That close is to close.Stupid is Stupid,he apparently intended to do harm if he is using a shotgun,good thing he didnt have an assult weapon i my have been a victim.Their are a lot of people that think that this area being close to the BLM is a good place to have liquor and drug parties.If any of the SJSO reads this you need to do regular patrol of this area on West Hammond stop by the neighbors and talk to us about what we see and hear,it might just help.I have lived out here for 25 years and I dont even Know but one deputy's name.

Maybe you should have stayed in high school. You spelled "right" and I hope you meant "write".
