First of all, no one should have been shot. Everyone that was there and said nothing is just as guilty as the one that pulled the trigger. The reason these criminals are still running around shooting folk like crazy is because they dont feel they will be caught and the justice system doesnt delve out harsh enough punishment. Why was a 34 year old man hanging with folk who were barely legal adults? Why was a 16 year old girl being beat and out of her home at 2 or so am? And seems that samuel was the only real man out there for trying to come to the aid of this child. Please know this could have been your brother, your son, your grandson or cousin. He was not a nameles and random kid. The shooters are probably monuments of crime in and near this community. People need to stop judging and take back their streets and communities. They dont belong to the criminals, they belong to people who live there regardless of their economic situation. Parents need to start parenting and grown folk need to stop with the crime and get their acts together.

When people do nothing ,it shows there morals!That person must live with that guilt,and guilt kills very slowly.The pressure to the mind and heart is to strong .The LORD above gave you that heart,just remember nothing!! is never covered by your creater,all is seen!!And you know who this is sent to!You can only hide from us but not from your creater!!Be honest to yourself and to the victims family.It's call respect for human life!!Don't carry a heavy heart ,it'll destroy you slowly!!

Well like i said before Byan had nothing to do with Sams death he was in the wrong place at the wrong time and no he was not saying for Penny to shot Sam he Byran was justed as shocked as anyone that penny had shot him!!! Penny and Bryan were into it with someone else and Sam was talking about Penny would have to shot someone cause he was to lil to be able to win a figth that upset Penny and for what reson only penny know he shot Sam... Byran had be talking to Sam min. before Penny shot him Byran was well as myself knew and were cool with Sam I really know their was know reson to die like that and I am very sorry and so is Bryan ......!!!

Sam was a kind hearted guy! He did not deserve to die under any circumstances at all!!!! He was always there for me and he was my best friend until we lost touch. I didn't realize until just recently that he was murdered and I am very angry! I enjoyed every moment I spent with him and will cherish him forever. I would have hoped that the guys responsible would have gotten put away for a lot longer than 45 years.
