Im so sorry for the parents and loved ones of these boys. I experienced the loss of a friend almost a year ago. This is one of the hardest things anyone has to go through. Stay strong family & FMers..my thoughts and prayers will be with you.

I go to Fayetteville-Manlius. I knew these two brilliant and intellegent young men. Show some respect for them, their families, our school and the community. They had their lives ahead of them, and it got taken away in a freak accident.
thoughts and prayers are with them <3

I saw these kids everyday at school. They were both amazing people. It pains me to think of what they had to endure during their last moments, school won't be the same.

Wow. That has got to be absolutely devastating for the families of the victims. It's just so shocking - I really can not believe it.

Isn't anyone questioning why two young people like this were NOT IN SCHOOL where they BELONGED? Why it took their poarents ALL OF THAT TIME TO WONDER WHERE THEY WERE? And finally why in hell were they driving on posted and clearly marked land in the first place? BOOO HOOO HOOO! Give me a frigging break!

No. Question. When did it become alright for parents to hand over deadly weapons to children and NOT expect them to het hurt or killed.My only surprise is that it didn't happen sooner and that they didn't take a few of their friends with them. Too bad they got killed, but what else was supposed to happen? No. I am certainly NOT kidding you!

Gee, Gramps. I donno about that. What else would you call a multi-thousand pound four wheel drive monster capable of leaping tall hills with a single foot on the gas peddle? Let me guess. You'd probably call it a toy. Yup. That 's what these kids were "playing' with. Their little toys, when they SHOULD have been IN SCHOOL. By the way. Here's another question. Don't teachers take attendance any more? Bottom line is this. Everyone directly connected to this unfortunate circumstance owns part of it. The parents, the school admin and most of all, the two kids who wasted their lifes by playing a dangerous game with a dangerous toy that got them killed. Got anything else you want to call me, Gramps?

There's no reasoning with people like you, Hillary.

I saw no attempt at reasoning from you or your friend Emm. Just baiting and name calling. But I guess if that's all ya got then that's about all I should expect. Oh well.

Just sitting here thinking about my own mortality; when it's your time, that's it.
I feel bad for the parents as no parent should have to bury their child.
I know this is simplistic but there you go.

I must say, I agree with you. It certainly was unfortunate, but it didn't need to happen, and the fault lies with the kids, and a number of adults.

No. I am certainly NOT saying that this lsoo was "justifiable" Predictable if anything. Had they NOT decided to play a very foolish and dangerously stupid game then maybe they'd be alive today. I think that the results indicate how driving where one doesn't belong did prove to be both dangerous and deadly. People like myself "make it" by not doing stupid and dangerous things. My compashion lies with those they left behind. Maybe they will tend to think twice before taking such risks. We live by the motto which asks, "Why risk it". So tell me, oh great sage, how do people as yourself make it?

They were trespassing on posted land. Violating the rights of the property owners. They deserved to die. Stupid people live short lives. If it were my property I would have shot them dead and disposed of the vehicle.

For a person of your intelligence, I figured that you'd take me to mean other kids who might contemplate such stupidity. Guess I was wrong. Sorry.
