A lot of people "go to church", that's really not the point. She murdered someone and had no right to judge his life. Now she's facing judgment via the court system.

I knew him personally, and he was always in some kind of trouble! he got kicked out of school and would never listen to his mother or anyone trying to keep him in the right direction. Yes, she should have gone to the police for help 1st, but some time's police just blow things off that can later fire up again anyway!I knew it was going to happen, I just didn't know how or when. he had a very hard head! which left him with a soft ass! I wish he could have changed his life so his younger brother and sister could look up to him. Yes I'm very sad that this has happened and wished it could have turned out with a happy ending,but you just have to put your feet in her shoes and think?(WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT HAPPENED TO YOU)?????????

Romans 12:19 says; Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord.

sounds like she was no better than the boy she shot, so he had a hard head and lots of problems, did the wrong thing all the time? Apparently she was the kind of person that gets mad, locates a gun, hits the streets and murders someone.

If I put my feet in her shoes? Yeah...not gunna go shoot a guy in the neck for fighting my brother. She has scarred him much more deeply than an altercation with a 'group of teens' could have. His sister is now a murderer and will be separated from her family.

And the other boy is out of chances to turn his life around.

You need to take a look at his face book page and a video of him and his friends bullying and fighting a boy with his other gang banger buddies. and why? because he was chubby and smart!! after you see it let us know how you feel about this so called TEEN!!and the boy that's getting picked on! what if he was your brother or son, how would you feel about this???? he was a punk that sold drugs and in a gang called BMV (blood money viknz).

she took a gun, went out and shot him. As bad as HE was, SHE was no better. They both damaged many lives with their collective choices. Nothing was gained with his murder, nothing was gained with her becoming a murderer.

First of all, no one should die. However, this "teenager" had a rap sheet longer than this blog. He was on probabtion for 5 DIFFERENT offenses. He preyed on the smart kids, and JUST robbed a relative of mine and his friends at GUN POINT. He surely sold drugs and had ambitions to lead other guys to do the same. People get fed up with the justice system FAILING and allowing these punks to roam the streets, threaten our kids and eventually hurt or even kill before they are locked up. You LIVE by the sword, you DIE by the sword. There are MORE out there that looked up to him and the only thing I regret is that he died a matyr for his cronies. He surely had it coming, it's just sad that a mother threw her life away to handle it. Would this had been a better story if one of the smart kids got fed up and blew him away? Yea, maybe.

You cannot dictate justice on emotion. This situation ended badly for everyone involved. I don't see why you think me watching a thuglet video is going to make me suddenly say OH MY GOSH I WAS SO WRONG I'M GUNNA GET A GUN AND GO SHOOT A THUG IN THE NECK!!! and agree with you. I don't agree with you. Families are destroyed. Screwed up families are now MORE screwed up.

So duh. I'm not watching the video. I don't need to see the video to know the kid/man man/boy had problems. WAS BAAADDDD. People around here are being reduced to ANIMALS by their bad behavior, bad upbringings and lack of *self control*. That includes the sister. I won't condone it.

Why would you want me to?

Its a sad sad situation. No one has the right to take a life. If this kid was such a problem, why not report him to the Cal.city police? where was his parents ? This killing of each other has got to stop. Are we going to have a future? I can understand her anger, right then and there the cops should have been called instead of her taken matters into her own hands. Now look where its has gotten here.

Other's surely had tried calling the Cal police and like many, the Courts ALREADY knew what kind of individual this was, as they know others that are STILL walking our streets. How much is enough? You call the police and that individual is back on the streets NOW threatening not just your child, but you and and your family. What's the answer? You don;t know until you're placed into that situation. Matthew 26:52, in Lamens terms, you Live by the sword, DIE by the sword.

So it's not "Duh?" after all.
