I mean what can we really comment about this.. regardless of what he did or didn't do his family will say he was a good person and didn't deserve to die.

It's a trip when people are killed everyone justifies their individual actions. Either the killer will say they had a reason... or the victim will say that they never did anything wrong.

Just like the guys at the Uno's murder... most of them involved were involved in some "dark side activities".

Until we make it a priority of the children of this city, county, state, country how important it is to not get involved with crime... to try and do something positive with their lives, so that when the street does at it has always done.. "claims its own" we don't have to adjust the truth.... we can say with clear records and minds.. that the person was an innocent victim... I just think it's all pretty interesting. If we don't start teaching.. there won't be anyone left to teach. They are killing each other off so quick.. and for roughly little to no reason at all.

~ FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE TO START OFF TO SAY THAT I DO KNOW THE DECEASED AND FAMILY AND THIS WAS NOT THE TYPE OF YOUNG MAN WHO RAN RAGGED... HAVE SOME RESPECT PLEASE!! YEAH HE WAS YOUNG AND SO AM I, BUT THE POINT OF THE MATTER IS THAT SENSELESS KILLINGS IS RIDICULOUS!!! I BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO GO OUT ONCE AND A WHILE AND HAVE A GOOD TIME AND NOT END UP GETTING KILLED AFTER THE FACT OVER ANYTHING... HE WAS NO DIFFERENT THAN MOST OF THE PEOPLE AMONGST US.. HE WORKED, WENT TO SCHOOL, AND WAS ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING WITH HIMSELF SO THAT HE WOULD NOT BECOME ANOTHER STATISTIC AND ITS SAD THAT YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING NOW DAYS BECAUSE OF A PERSON WITH PRIDE AND EGO WHO WONT BACK DOWN BECAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE THEY GOT SOMETHING TO PROVE... WHAT ABOUT THE FAMILIES, FRIENDS, ETC THAT WILL BE LEFT BEHIND?? IT SICKENS ME!! EVERYTIME YOU TURN AROUND, YOU HEAR A PERSON YOU KNOW GOT KILLED OVER SOME NON-SENSE... NOW I'M 21 YEARS OLD, HAVE A FULL-TIME JOB, I AM IN SCHOOL, HAVE MY OWN PLACE, MY OWN CAR, AND I AM STILL STRIVING FOR EXCELLENCE... BUT AT TIMES I DO FEEL LIKE GOING OUT AND ENJOYING MYSELF.. AND AT THE END OF THE DAY, I SHOULD NOT FEEL LIKE I HAVE TO WATCH OVER MY BACK TO END UP AS A VICTIM OF VIOLENCE!! THIS CITY HAS A PROBLEM.. TOO MUCH PRIDE AND EGO'S AMONGST OUR YOUTH... AND ITS SAD IT SICKENS ME!!! R.I.P. JERMAINE~

You know of course you know the victim... there is ALWAYS someone out there that knows the victim... my point may not be true for this article.. but look at the many that it IS true for. you can go out and have a good time... but for what reason did someone have to kill this person... please do tell that...was it a beef after the club? Was it a woman? lover? was it Money.?? or was he just driving down the street and someone shot him? Mistaken identity?

oh and much like most of the stories... they will not update us on WHY your friend was killed...

I will be hard pressed to find the resolution to this crime.

And like I said ... the killer justifies his retarded choice to take a life... it wasn't a botched robbery... or an accident... you understand?

First I will like to address a member to society, if you so-call yourself that then do your part and stop sending out bad and negative responses to Jermaine and our family. Jermaine shouldn’t have died. Yes he was a great person, he love God and his family. I for one know him personally, my mom and his mom are sisters, and for you to question why he had gotten killed if you are a member of society such as Jermaine was then you would do your part in keeping the people that’s in society made aware of positive things instead of degrading them with negative things. Jermaine is and was a great kid and then later on a man. He love to enjoy himself and since when that became a crime in the USA. Freedom for all and justice as well. He is dead respect the victim you should be stating that we need to get a killer off the street. Jermaine attended college he worked and never had a CRIMINAL RECORD oh how odd you may say of that to be. Just think not everybody that is gun down are bad we do have some Black communities that still enforce God, family and principles. In this case Jermaine Tinch family did. Now you take that and stick it up…… You hater wanna be fake writer. Do all of us that are real in society a FAVOR and SHUT UP......

whatever everyone is a victim. always. everyone is justified. it's the system that is set up.
and tomorrow the community will mourn another death, because we all sit back and have a pity party and do nothing about the violence around... because it is continuously justified.

I'm was born in d.c...i posted not long ago about my experience visiting. I was near the Verizon Center when there was a game going on or something. The streets where full of white foke. Along with the white foke there were about 100 police cars there to protect them.

It may be dangerous for non white people, but you have the whole damm D.C. police department looking out for people with white skin.

It appears that white life is more important than non white life because if it wasn't true, the police would have had a least 50 of those cars in Anacostia or New York Avenue where hard working black foke live and deserve just as much protection and consideration with these "non racial" issues.

Comparatively there are a few blacks who commit serious crime, however with the police hangin out at the Verizon center, they don't see any need to curtail their efforts and it also esculates.

Thanks D.C. police and white foke...

these tragic events have been happening for soooo long. Long before the media communications would put it out there for folks to hear. Dare I say it? has the media gotten better????

Any person who makes an honest living, and is a responsbile human being should have his/her personal safety watched over by ALL public safety personnell!!! But it's sad sometimes that isn't always the case.
