I disagree. According to the case, he's a hero in my book and about 98% of everyone else. 16? Gun?(That's wrong), pointing at homeowner in a break in?(That's a.....Wrong)....Firing at a cop chasing you? Priceless! Another criminal gone. Nothing personal, just business. Do the crime pay the price.

Society is going to have to pay for this child's incarceration, while the money would be better spent preventing a so called "criminal boy" from making these types of decisions/mistakes so early in life. We need leaders, role models, teachers, police, and parents handling their business and when some fall to the end of the line, "us as Americans" should put them on our shoulder "as fellow Americans" and help carry them until they can walk again. To take it deeper, helping them foresee the holes in the trail so they can prepare and prevent that fall.
Throwing people in jail is proven to be ineffective and crime continues to rise. Prevention and Forgiveness is hard at first, then it morphs into respect for thy neighbor instead of rob thy neighbor. This is America, the best country to this day. Any True American happy to see a child "a child" go to prison has to live with that ignorance and somehow sleep well. We are all accountable for the actions of this fellow American child.

They're ignorant! It started way back like this:
Where's your homework?
Didn't have a pencil
Couldn't understand
Didn't feel like asking
Thought I'd look stupid
it was too difficult
no one will help me
the dog ate it
I'm too tired.

All these and some more are the "Core foundation excuses" that lazy kids with lazy parents who don't value Education.....Build upon. Later on in life, the learn how to blame more complex parameters like "Racial Conspiracies or Prejudice", government agencies, the education systems, housing authorities and/or real estate etc...
This is all lazy people & races by the way. But pulling the race card is the lowest crutch for the laziest of the laziest. It's like me saying "I'm Polish, so no one will hire me in Boston!"...

You all must have no heart
He was my best friend and if your saying him getting shot 17 times was a good way of taking care of the situation?
and later they find out he wasnt breaking into anyones house, he was getting into his friends grandparents house where he was staying.
He ran because he was suppose to be on house arrest.
Everyone makes mistakes, me you everyone in your family
You all are pathetic

yes everyone makes mistakes but they dont try to shoot a police officer what if he shot that police officer he would be in the same boat as that teen that killed that bell co sheriff's deputy and is k-9 partner
what i see if teen agers dont want to be treated like adults they should not act like an adult

I agree. Hard facts....(Take all the coddling emotions away)
Shouldn't have run
Shouldn't have aimed
Should have made good choices.
Then.....There would be no need for all this compassion.

It does not matter how old he was, where he lived,the color of his skin, if he was a good student or not, a good friend or not. None of that matters. He ran (who cares what for), he got caught, he had a gun, officers told him to drop it, he did not comply, the officer defended his life and the lives of his fellow officers. It is a shame that it had to happen that way, but don't play with guns and the police. It's not a game. A 16 year old can kill you just the same as a 60 year old, what would you do?

"Harlow's family could not be reached for comment yesterday."

Probably hookin' up with attorney in preparation for the wrongful death lawsuit. This city pays out to the families of criminals.

You live as you choose to live. You are right that many of us do not fully comprehend or appreciate all of the factors that play into your life, but it isn't necessary that "we" do. It is important that "you" do. I may be ignorant to some things about many things, but I do know that animals are still animals and that the very worst are the humans that choose to be. Choose. That is the key word here. You can make that choice, but you're not worthy of bad mouthing anyone that has chosen otherwise and is offering intelligent and beneficial advice in an effort to preserve your future. Even if you're too stupid to take that advice. It would be smart to consider the adage that “Either you are part of the solution, or you are the problem”.

Nope and don't want to know. Sounds like you are where you belong until you decide to change your life, if not, you'll end up like the rest.

I suggest everyone ignore these kinda postings..all they want to do is lure you into a flame war.
And we all know that fighting on the internet is like running in the special olympics..even if they win they are still retarded.

I do know how you live. Louisville is a stroll in the park compared to Chicago's Robert Taylor or Cabrini Green, or Cicero or Wabansia, but go on and pretend that I don't know. What's wrong is wrong. Kid should've known better. Don't you agree?

That's a good one Vamp. You're right. I just have this bad habit to thinking that these followers will somehow "get it" and wise up. They're in their "weak choices" phase of life like fish swimming after a shiny lure, all moving in the same direction.
