R.I.P. helder. you will be missed. It sucks that no one is speaking up about what really happened. we know you all to well and we know that you didnt have the gun. You were too smart for this. why? and How? i know i'll never get the answers to my questions but damn Bs. Why you? Your were like god's gift to this earth. Who ever was in your presense was blessed to have known a person like you. your were so funny. you'd make us laugh while keeping a straight face. you had a big heart. you can and never will be replaced. God take of him. it hurts to much. i dont want to believe that you are gone. but i know your with me in spirit. watch over your mom, dad and family.I love you. And i'll see when i get up there.

What is happening to the young adults in the urban area, especially Central Falls. I grew up in this city 20+ years ago and we didnt' have access to guns. As a mother of a 19 year old, I would be scared if my son was in this city. Fortunately, he didn't go to high school and is attending college at an out of state college. I go walking in the city and see so many kids and young adults hanging around. What happened to getting a job. I can remember if we were hanging around somewhere the cops would tell us to move it along.....

i think that both of the boys are in the wrong the fact that a gun (doesnt matter who's gun it was) was pulled at a park where there was kids around is so not cool wat happens if one of those bullets hit an innocent child. idk wat this world is coming to why cant we just end the violence and why fight with any type of weapons man if you going to fight, fight with ur hands.

i'm both angry and sad, that helder is gone so soon. I been knowing him and his family for 15yrs and they are nice quiet people. It's really hard to believe that helder would carry a gun. hoping that they will further the investigation to find out the truth so his family and friends could have a peace of mind.i'm sick of these senseless violence and young people dying from gun shots

This is unacceptable killing in Central Falls I am a High School student in CF High but I just don't feel safe anymore walking in the streets or in school. Even if the school is surrounded with police everywhere is not fair to people that try to help out,but there's always someone or something that does something to effect others.This seriously need to STOP.We always think about us us us, but we don't think about other and in that case we AFFECT OTHERS.
