Remembering slain Rolonda Roberts

Sep 18, 2007 | Posted by: Shabella | Full story: www.news4jax.com

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- A 13-year-old Brunswick girl was shot and killed early Saturday by a bullet police said they believe was meant for someone else. Brunswick police said Rolanda Roberts was shot at about 1:50 a.m. while standing at the 600 block of Q Street. Police were able to quickly make an arrest in the fatal shooting. The day after Rolanda was shot and killed, 20-year-old Luther Green Johnson III was identified by witnesses and was arrested on charges of involuntary manslaughter and possession of a firearm during commission of a crime.

i'm so sorry to hear about rolanda roberts...but what concerns me the most is....what was she doing out at 1:30 in the morning...and where was the parents....the parents should be put in jail for child neglilect and if there are other siblings in the home....have them taken away from the irresponsible parent or parents...if i'm not mistaken...i think i over heard someone say she had alot of siblings...where was mom...making more!!!!!

The man accused of fatally shooting a Brunswick teenager early Saturday now faces a felony murder charge with the prospect of life in prison instead of involuntary manslaughter.Brunswick police had originally charged Luther Johnson III, 20, with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Rolanda Roberts, 13."We talked with police and looked at the evidence, and agreed (the involuntary manslaughter charge) needed to be upgraded to murder on Tuesday,"...
THANK YOU JESUS!!! I am SOOO glad he is now being charged with FELONY MURDER!!
I am so happy to hear that Justice is being served, Rhonda sweetie may you rest in peace that this man will never do this to anyonelse again EVER!, even from the grave you spoke and you were heard.

And even if she had been inside her home; bullets were being fired near her home. It was a stray bullet, it could have hit anybody in it's path. Another child Brianna Caddell was in her bed sleeping when she was shot by a stray bullet.
Don't get me wrong, I believe that is late for her to be out. I'm just saying a kid could be shot by a stray bullet anywhere, it's not her parents fault that she was shot by a stray bullet.
I agree with you there, a stray bullet is a stray bullet, and it cannot be controlled as to the path it will take once it is let loose out of the gun.

In cases like this, I am all for Curfews being inforced. It is for the safety of the kids, and it also serves to teach parental responsibility.

It is truly sad to see that it takes a child getting killed by means of a bullet meant for someonelse to bring about awareness of the dangers late at night on the streets. For parents to finally see what can happen if they do not demand their children be indoors by a certain time.

Sure in a neighborhood ridden with gangs and guns even a bedroom is not an absolute safeguard but at least there is a building to slow the bullet down and less of a chance of getting hit by a stray bullet indoors than out.

Now that IS justice as it is supposed to be served!

Now for the Edenfreaks to get theirs, lets hope it is swift justice and that they never see the light of day again as a free person.

Hey I am sorry for all that has happen, I am sorry for the lost of Roloda and for what is happening to your family as well. I don't feel like your brother did this on purpose. Its just a real sad situation all around and I agree with you about people all over the internet saying "yeah he deserves life or death" they are just fake and like you said have nothing else to do.

People seem to ALWAYS want to place the blame on the parents. Why can't you just fault the killer for his own actions? I agree that 1:30 is late for a girl to be out but really, whose fault is it that she was killed? THE KILLER!
You need to research the history of why people kill and abuse. Most child molesters were molested as a child. Most abusers were abused as child. No excuse but its a FACT! Can you say anything intellengent and worth reading?

I also feel sorry about Rolonda and Aaron, I, unlike you Keona must pass by the memorials and the gravesites with my children and answer the question, "why Mommy?"

Christopher is just as important as these other children and died a MUCH more horrifying death, that does not make him any better or worse than anyone else.

You need to take your disgusting racism away from Brunswick and leave Christophers family alone!

No one has ever told this female Christopher was more important than any other slain child.But unlike her,the people in Brunswick feel a little more for his situation than others because of the circumstances surrounding his death.She is to mentally challenged to understand any of this anyway.To her,these children are just another way to get the attention she so greatly craves.

This female is seriously disturbed!!She speaks as if she is personally involved with these families.The truth is the Barrios family wish she didnt even exist,and I sure the others havent a clue as to what type of leach she really is concerning the deaths of there loved ones.
