I'm beginning to think you must be kidding with all of this nonsense. Are you being satirical to prove a point? I hope that you are. I hate to think that there are really people out there as ignorant and crazed as you are. Get off your high, racist horse. Chances are you're of immigrant descent yourself. That is unless you are indigenous to North America, and in that case it means you're either Native American or MEXICAN !!!!

BTW, SC has been 831 for at least 10 years, if not longer.

here we go again......you people still don't get it! just because he was "a loud mouth" that doesn't mean it's ok to go to his door step and kill him while his family is home! I personally think your a loud mouth but that doesn't mean i'm gonna go to your front door and kill you. come on people. open your freakn eyes!!!!

Can we get back to the point of the article??

Joseph Morales may have or may not have been a gang member,but what happen to him and what his family is going through is sad.

What just because you have mexican haritage you must belong to a gang?

My heart goes out to the Joseph's family and friends. I know what it is like to lose a close family/friend and not have an answer to the case. My good friend Eric Lopez on gunned down on his front porch on 10/31/1999 and his case is also cold.

Oh one last thing before I go......

NOT ALL GANG MEMBERS ARE MEXICAN!!!

And I would like to see you white folk out there in the fields picking the fruit and veggies or working at the counter in McDonalds or any other fast food place.

why are you on here talking bad about other people? the topic is about a murder case it's not asking people to come here and bad talk people or to verbally abuse people by using racial remarks! the purpose of this article is to help find the 2 suspects who committed this crime. trash talking other people will get you no where!!!!!
R.I.P Joseph Ray Morales- we love & miss you!
