You people really need to get a life. And from the number and quality of posts, I would also suggest an education and a job.

It was a shame that a kid had to have that happen to him. The people who committed the crimes will and are paying. Your posts here are not solving any problems; simply creating them. Why not improve the situation by helping clean up this community. That are is a trailer park, but it was a relatively clean park. Now, in a one-time symbol of goodwill it is flanked by a trashy little "rain-soaked shrine" to CB. This eyesore is an insult to his memory, much like your repeated postings.

Of course, neither of you two seem to be local, nor do many of the others that continue these topics ad nauseam, so what do you care. MOVE ON! Harass some other community or board. If you care so much, why not do something for his surviving siblings or family. This isn't about you.
We're tired of you here.

I've been gone for a while, but now I'm back and my family and I are sad to see how far down Christopher's threads have fallen. He should not be so far down on the Brunswick forum.

Christopher Barrios should always be on top above all the Keona threads and all the wasted energy of trying to change her mind and opinions. This girl has a right to what she believes and so do the rest of us, but this constant bickering back and forth trying to influence one way or the other is such a waste of time. Does anyone know when the next court date is for the Edenfreaks? I would like to attend the next one.

Justice for Christopher Barrios! I will continue to post on his threads as much as I want to, Its called FREEDOM OF SPEECH "Enough Already"
I'm generally apolitical toward such things, but I didn't necessarily get from that message that they were against speech. Personally, I think there should be a forum for Christopher Barrios. I was right there at the police command vehicle 10 feet from the Barrios family during the entire initial search and I saw what that family went through. Sad.
But, I can also understand where (and I don't know if they are a member of the Edenfields or not) the poster was coming from about the relentless discussions. Why not just have one forum dedicated to the subject?

I agree to the sense that I miss reading the regular postings by a variety of people on a variety of topics (not just murders) that used to happen prior to this spring. Once everybody got all bent out of shape, those people disappeared (at least they quit posting); and that's a shame.

Frankly I don't think it's that healthy for us all to dwell on such topics. Reverence and respect is one thing; the tone around here has been something different.

I've been reading the news here and the forums for over a year and a half now. I used it as my first source of local news prior to moving to Brunswick. I really wish I had done more to maintain community than just read, but time didn't allow such. It does now, and I'm trying very hard to turn our Brunswick, GA news/forum into a positive place that people can truly stay informed about Brunswick. That's why I've been trying to provide either historical background to the articles I post or I try to provide links to relevent news/research materials. I hope it's been appreciated.

I really hope that everyone will work with me to that goal. I believe that we can serve the memories of our Brunswick kids like CB and RR without insulting anyone or watering down their story just by respecting each other.

Sorry, didn't mean to soapbox. As I said, I generally try to be apolitical about things, but there were just some things that I agreed with in that message. I, too, have gotten tired of all the negativity and off-topic discussions.

Thanks right back at you.
I think that some of what I said was slightly misinterpreted and I just want to clarify my position.
I completely agree that you should post here about CB. He was part of this community. I just don't think that there necessarily needs to be 5 or 6 individual threads on the same topic. Actually, doing so dilutes the message that you're trying to convey.
If I might make a suggestion, why not combine the multiple conversations into a single thread. Doing so would be like singing with one voice that is clear and distinct instead of the cacophony of noise that exists now. This will permit any new updates to the case be highlighted and not just get lost in the mix.
Keep promoting a CB thread, just not six of them; it's counterproductive, distracting, and .
By increasing the discussions about other current news articles, we will increase the number of regular viewers/posters to our forums. More people reading the forums means more people to pass information along to and I think that is your ultimate goal. If people come here looking for information about Brunswick and they can't find it... they won't stay.
If we can manage to keep our local threads focused on local topics,(that includes focused conversations about our kids like CB and RR) we'll be be enhancing their memory and improving our community. And I would hope that is what we all want for Brunswick.
If you look back at the listing of forum threads, you'll notice a change in the postings after CB went missing back in April. The whole mood of the forums changed. They went from varied and lively conversations to much more melancholy, dark and even angry. We don't have to let it be like that.
Another word on something that I touched on earlier. Although there are many topics posted here that are of value, please remember that they may have more value by being posted to the correct forums area within Topix.com . There's a reason that they organize and categorize the various discussions. It's so that people can find the information they are looking for.
If you want to find a conversation about fishing, you don't look for it in the business section, although I'm sure that there are some businessfolk who fish and might entertain a little fish tale or two, but the overall point would be lost. Of course you look for fish tales in fishing. The same concept applies to a local community. Keep them local.
With that said, please let us avoid the off-topic postings and threads. I'm not in charge of what you post, I'm just asking nicely. If you would like my thoughts on a subject I'll happily post on most any subject (I'm well-versed), but let me do so in the correct place.
I know that people will do what they will, but I will do my best to help make this a good, useful, and fruitful community news-forum.
Thank you for listening.
Yours,

Coastal Life,

Yes you are well versed and you post are much appreciated. It sounds like you will be a great asset to the community of Brunswick. I live in Midway only about 40 minutes away, and I also have a special interest in Christopher's case because it hit so close to home, and because it was so tragic the way that little boy was treated. Thank you for your post and your objectiveness, it is much needed on these threads.

Yea you have to wonder why his case didn't attract the mass media like Jessica Lunsford. I will not say "his is worse" but I will say that he deserved just as much or maybe more attention then she received. Same thing with Sherrice Iverson, she didn't get enough attention. I wonder why..Hmm..I wonder..
KEONA please stop making this a racial issue, Christopher was a human being like all of these children were. Who cares about color? What we need to focus on is that another " Human Being" a sweet innocent child was murdered by sex craved maniacs. The focus should be on keeping his memory alive and making sure that the edenevils never get out of that jail house. That proper justice come for Christopher.

Who knows why the media didnt take this and run with it? we may never really know the full reason, to speculate that it was a racial purposeful thing is just that, speculation without any fact finding.

Why dont we focus on ways parents can keep their children safe in our communities? Educating and getting the word out.

Keona if you can look past the racial barrier you have put up, you will see that a victim is a victim and ALL victims deserve equal help and support, or in the case of those who lose their lives to animals like the edenevils, that victim should at least be afforded those still living to fight for their rights to justice in the end.

You can never fully advocate for a victim if you are stuck in one mode of thought and are unwilling to explore other options for justice without personal opinion injected.

By keeping personal feelings or opinions at the forefront of what you are trying to accomplish you are in fact being counter-productive instead of productive.

When I help a victim of a crime, I do not care about their personal particulars, I see a human being in need of help and I go to work for that person.

I have helped rich people, poor people, diabled people, people in other countries, because that is what I am trained to do and that is who I am. I dont like what is going on in say Iraq, but if an Iraqi citizen gets ripped off and asks for my help I will step in and do anything within my field of expertise or power to help him/her. I utilize the talents of others with expertise in other fields, I find someone that can speak the native language if that is what it takes. The bottom line is working for resolve in the situation and to facilitate healing for the victim no matter who that person is or where they are from.

You have to look at the big picture with an open mind and open heart.

If you truly want to help fight against predators and fight for the rights of children and their families you have got to learn to network with others, watch, listen, learn and go to work.

You cannot accuse others of things they may not be guilty of or have power to do. You can ask Why? you can ask for anwers but do so in a diplomatic way, I assure you it brings about far greater results.

Keona I see that you have a passion and that is to see justice for kids who are killed by maniacs like these.

I only want you to see where you are hurting yourself through how you express yourself and come across to others.

I sense that deep down inside you want to be heard, you want to make a difference, and that is a very good thing. Choosing your words differently certainly would give you the boost towards accomplishing your goals that you so badly want to achieve.

Get bold, if you think the media ignored these kids, go straight to those agencies and ask why? report back to us on what they told you. That is being pro active and not insinuating anything other than concern for the fact that attention should have been properly paid by those who have the power to get the word out.

Many papers have citizen journalist positions open if they are not going to report on the proceedings with the Barrios case, then maybe given the right choice of wording, an article or two could help spur more attention in the future.

There is a wealth of public information available in cases like these that a journalist can get ahold of such as: next court dates set, What stage the proceedings are currently at, etc.

I admit the Brunswick news leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to quality reporting. Reporters there have a tendancy to get all fired up about something and then that quick drop it.

Maybe some pushing from the outside may spur on more action.

The very fact that they are all charged with Capital Murder is a VERY good thing, that is a very stiff charge and has more stick to it than manslaughter or say 2nd degree murder even.

For a prosecutor to be able to get a Capital Murder Charge placed on someone there has to be sufficient enough evidence, that is a tough one for a prosecutor to accomplish in many cases.

Keona I am not coming down on you to pick a fight or hurt you in any way. I see you making some mistakes that can only hurt YOU and I do not seriously think that is what you are aiming for.

You have a great start with your website, with more research and really applying yourself you could go a long way fighting for justice for child victims and their families.

Sometimes it is better to think something and not write it, does any of this make any sense?

Well I can respect that, I too have been in the media, was filmed for a documentary that was recently purchased by Discovery Channel. What I do is the result of literally thousands of hours of research alone, and networking with other professionals from which I continue to learn more and more. I have become a for lack of other words knowledge sponge.

yes this thread is about christopher, and I see many people trying to band together for see that justice is carried through in this case. I also see petty arguments among all of the great posts tearing things apart.

It is great that you do things your way, it is great that you are taking a proactive stand against these crimes. Like I have been saying it is more about wording and diplomacy than anything else.

It becomes VERY difficult to follow thought patterns when they are interrupted with a post that is worded in a way that can be taken very negatively though maybe it was not meant to be that way.

We all have our own passions and our own style that is what makes us all so different from each other.

Can we agree to disagree and move on? can you do me a favor tough? Before you hit the post button next time, read over what you have written and do so from the view point of an outsider, someone other than you, as an outsider if you do not feel that it will offend you or sound as if you are combative hit the button, if it does sound that way to you just think about the wording, that is all I ask. can you do that?

Example: When you said in a different thread that you are racist and that is who you are, that is a combative statement. A more diplomatic way to put it is this way..... I prefer to help black children and their families because that is where my heart is.

I would have said Wonderful go with your passion. Just because you prefer to help black families and kids does not make you a bad person, it shows you have a passion for where you target your help, but also shows that you do consider that other races too have the same issues going on and that you have not discounted that.

bla bla bla bla bla........wise1, why do you think that the things you say to her will make any kind of difference in her way of wording things, or seeing things. This is getting old...leave it alone, Keona is Keona is Keona, and you all just feed into her all the time, why? Leave it alone. She openly admits the way she is and she intends to stick to it, no matter what you or I or any other stranger post to her on topix. You are well written and seem to be an educated person, that's great so am I but I won't waste my time trying to show that off on Keona. Not that I have a problem with the girl, I don't care what her ideals are on any issue. They don't change mine or anyone else's (i don't think). Anyway, none of my business none of it is, but really it was none of yours either.

THANK YOU! That's my whole point. WHY give a damn?? I'm not saying thanks to a** licking Stacey, she is always saying something behind close doors about the people here, then come on the forum pretending to think I'm the trouble. In fact she told me that YOU SFS, ran alot of people off this forum before I even started posting here. It's funny how somebody that claims to be 35 could be so FAKE. Sending me emails saying "ignore what they say" yet she is the one who try to stir and is entertained by garbage. I wonder if she orgasm just by reading drama.
I don't care what she said Keona, you should keep those things to yourself. Everyone seems to have a different face when it suits them best.

How about everyone keep things to themselves? Or am I the only one who should remain silent? If something is not a topix or a Brunswick issue; I don't think it should take up bandwith here. But it's funny how the SAME people say "keep Christopher up top" are the ones that when they log on to topix, they go straight to the "all about Keona" threads. Then turn around and say "Christopher should not be so far down". Ya wonder why.
You make such a valid point! No don't keep silent say what you got to say, but in the future you can keep the things that people say about me to you, to yourself. I really really don't care what Stacey or anyone else has to say of me. Thanks.

And anyways; what happened between me and April is not a topix matter, I guess that's why very few people even engage in it. But this is what REALLY happened--Paula refused to take my stolen poem from her site. I repeatedly, REPEATEDLY, I mean BEGGED her to take my damn poem down because I wrote it for Sherrice Iverson. She just wouldn't, THAT'S when I started emailing her nasty things. Then April called me up, I said "I honestly don't care about Christopher". She then said "oh yea well I hope your friend got f***ed in the a** by a white man". That's when I started saying it should have been her daughter that the Edenfields took.
So before you or anyone else respond to something know the facts or just leave it between the two of us. She had no right to say anything about Cynteria. All I said was I don't care about Christopher, which is not a crime nor sin.
The tape has what was said Keona and that was not it.What color are you going to paint your cell.
