COMMENT TO KMC, get educated. I was raised in Waterloo and your assumption is so far off. My assumption of the inner city of Geneva is keep all your minority groups, it will keep Waterloo a safe place to live as it always has been. As I see this is a Black on Mexican crime-Huh what a surprise.

THIS COMMENT IS FOR RRW... HE WAS PUERTORICAN, ASS. NOT A MEXICAN. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU START POPPIN OFF AT THE MOUTH ABOUT SHIT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT. ELVIN WAS A GOOD BOY, AND UNFORTUNATELY SOMETIMES GOD WANTS THESE PEOPLE WITH HIM. AND YES, WATERLOO IS A SAD, SAD PLACE. WHEN YOUR MOTHER AND YOUR BROTHER HAVE A FULL SET OF TEETH, THEN COME TALK TO US ABOUT GENEVA.

I work in the schools and live in the town...it's the way of thinking of the people above that promote the hate crimes. When will you people start looking at each other as humans and not some kind of comepetition? We all need to embrace each other and love one another no matter where we're from or what we look like. I hope this tragedy pulls the community together instead of tearing it apart.

I grew up in Geneva a long time ago, and I can tell you, it USED TO BE a very nice city.

But now blacks from Rochester, and Latinos
from God knows where have infested, yes I said infested, the city.

Most were sent down from Rochester by Social Services in an attempt to "socially engineer" Geneva, which for the first 200 years of it's existance, was 95% white.

Most of these scumbags, whores, dope dealers
and crack heads are on welfare and make babies faster than rabbits.

And that is the truth.

I say, send them all back to where they came from
and get our town back.

As I understand it, Geneva has historically hosted a community of ethnically diverse people, included a large Italian population.

These sort of remarks are the same I heard aimed at those Italians in the 1960's, and frankly, it's tired, old and sad.

The fact of the matter is that a young boy was shot down in the beginnings of his life, and we should all be sad about that. Race simply should not be an issue.

Wow. I came across these posts as I was doing research on Geneva for a client I am working with. I'm shocked by how the death of a young man - regardless of his race or that of his alleged killer - has incited such declarations of hatred and disgust for entire races. This is New York? The south gets a bad rap for being the racist and ignorant section of our country. Apparently these attitudes flourish everywhere. It's so sad.

yes, i know that geneva is mostly run by blacks and other races but you dont need to call us scums and dope dealers. we all are humans. and yes there is some people out there that are black and bad or anyother race. but just keep those comments to yourself. elvin was a good kid and had a lot to look forward to.

All of these comments make me sick, you are all only thinking about yourselves and not the family.Yes Geneva has some problems, but for the most part it is a nice to live and raise your children. If the Geneva PD would do there job instead of sitting at the station and eating donuts we would not have to worry. So if you want to point the finger at someone, point at them. My thoughts and prayers are with the family
