These young people need to stop killing one another," said Youngblood's uncle, Marcus Youngblood.

Why yes, yes they do.

"'He always did the right thing. He wasn't no bad boy,' said Youngblood's cousin, 23-year-old Alex Youngblood."

Is there an Ebonics translator in the house?

"was not no" means "was" -
a double negative.
translation for those of us who reached 9th grade and beyond:
"he was a bad boy"

It scarey to raise children these days. None of these young guys have any balls to fight and settle things like a man. They are so quick to just go get a gun.

The guns are already out there... Making laws against them now only takes them out of the hands of good people who want to defend themselves. Dont blame the NRA, its not their fault people do not know how to act. Everyone is always looking to put the blame on someone else.

"These young people need to stop killing one another," said Youngblood's uncle, Marcus Youngblood.
.
We need to kill each other before we have kids!
.
.
"Whoever it is, whoever knows something, come forward and let us resolve this because it's not right."
.
In other words,"I'm gonna get you sucka!"
.
.
The elder Torenda Youngblood described his son as a good kid, and said that he "stayed on him about doing good."
.
"You're gonna sell deez drugs and brings me da money back,jack!"
.
.
The younger Youngblood reportedly planned to enlist in the Army or Navy after finishing school.
.
Too bad they don't accept you after 27!

"He always did the right thing. He wasn't no bad boy," said Youngblood's cousin, 23-year-old Alex Youngblood. "He was trying to succeed.''

"And I wuz jus bout to tell him I wuz his daddy!

doesnt matter his race or oolor or creed. he was a young man, killed on his way to school. Rest in peace and my condolences to his family. Not matter what. no parent should outlive their kids.

16 seems a little old to be in the ninth grade.

not really. lots of kids turn 16 during their 9th grade year. we are also in MARCH, so it's pretty close to the end of the school year.

kids start school at a specfic age, if they become that age right after the start date, they must wait for the next september start date.

Let's just put it this way. Where this guy got shot is in the section known as Alphabet Soup, to put it kindly it's a disaster. A vast wasteland of human debris.
