Whatever happened to this case? Did they arrest the parents that owned the vehicle? I mean if the kids were not charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle then why don't they arrest the parent that made the vehicle accessible? Now the mexican remark was uncalled for on this forum. Everyone knows that juveniles will misspell words on the internet no matter where they reside or what race they are. While they think it is cute, it really shows how childish they really are.

[[First of all, did you ever attend school? Your post is ridiculous.
Yeah, I'm sure the parents aren't concerned in the least about placing blame; THEY are partially to blame for this. Clearly, they didn't teach their son not to do something like that. A group of kids "joking around" on a parking lot, standing up on a vehicle - a 13 year old with a "girlfriend" - what kind of parents do these kids have?? Clearly, these parents failed OR the kids didn't pay attention to what they were taught. It's a terrible story, but there are a lot of people to blame]]

I live in Waco, and I never knew the story behind Keon Talton. I always saw people saying "RIP KEON" and "WE MISS U BABY!"...and I figured that most of the people that were saying this were also attempting to represent Sur13 or N14, even though they've probably never seen Riverview CA, let alone Delano...I don't know, I thought it was gang-related junk.

Now that I've actually gone and read the story...I realize now that the parents of this kid, as well as the three kids that were arrested, were absolutely mental and show exactly what the problem in our country is. There are too many parents that don't discipline their children, and more than ever, give a damn less what they are doing. This kid thought it was a smart idea to get on the top of a car AND RIDE AROUND LIKE THAT?! Look, Zoe Bell did a "ship's mast" in Death Proof, and she's also a PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED STUNT PERSON! This was a kid who thought he was being cool...and look where it got him...dead.

I would say that I feel bad for the parents to have lost their son...but in all honesty, how could I when they obviously didn't even care enough about their son to tell him that this kind of s*** is downright stupid? I feel no pity for them, no pity for him dying, and no pity for the boys who were arrested. Moreover, anyone who can honestly support this kid's loss and say that they miss him...

I'm sorry...but I'm not the type to end up missing some idiot. Here's what I say:

RIP to common sense, discipline, good parents, and civilized society.

And everyone up above...PAY ATTENTION IN ENGLISH CLASS, READ A BOOK, GET AN EDUCATION, and STOP BEING IDIOTS!!! You obviously saw what happened to your idiot friend...so maybe you should take it as an example to straighten up and fly right!!!

You mean the friend that was driving the vehicle?? I am talking about the friends that had abandoned him when it happened (the ones that ran like cowards). No one is talking about the friends that had left before the incident happened. When my vehicle insurance rate goes up because of irresponsible parents and the kids they give the keys to are involved in an accident, yes it is my business. Are you that blind about kids having access to a VEHICLE?

What you should concetrate on is an education. Do you know how ignorant those posts makes you look? Where is the justice for Keon? I know his father and I feel for him, because I know it hurt him and he taught him better than that. Keon paid the ultimate price (his life)for his actions do you not understand that? He paid the price, but what about the ones involved? The so called friends, the parent that owned the vehicle? I have children too, but I do not hand the keys over to them. Why are you defending the ones that left him behind to die? This tragedy may have never happened if they did not have access to a vehicle. Grow up!
