Sorry, but the police can do little to stop this without violating civil rights. This is more of a community issue and a values instilled in the home issue. Parents, neighborhoods, civic organizations, churches, etc need to step up to the plate and give these kids an example of how to behave.

A police can lock up a criminal after a crime, but a mentor can prevent a kid from becoming a criminal in the first place.

why was a 17 year old out after 2 am? is there not a curfue in grand rapids? he was this and he was that, well then why didn't his parents keep better tabs on him. i knew where my 17 year old was at all times, that was my duty as a parent. and i am proud to say my son didn't want to be out in the middle of the night just for the fact of potential violence.

I agree. You are right on. These gang bangers need to be stopped. This fool should have been smart enough to stay home. Cmon people. Think. The one idiot called for back up? If these 2 were so smart they should have called the police. No big loss.

He was at the wrong place at the wrong time.If you people dont have nothing nice to say dont say it at all. There are meny people hurting right now. You dont know half of the story so shut up. gang banging will never stop. and after this shooting it is only going to get worse. alot of people respected him and loved him. He was there for his boys till the day that he died. the neighbors should have called the cops. People cant fight with their hands anymore they need knifes and guns.yeah its bull but its they way it is now. and its not going to be a bad summer so be prepaired.

I'm very sorry for your loss, but he shouldn't have "been there for his boys", he should've been home for his kid! This is not dying a hero.

Yeah....that's it...lets blame the cops....typical....I'm sorry for the loss of life...but the young man made the choice to intervene....there are consequences for every decision we make. This one had the ultimate consequence....and his family is mourning because of it. Sad really.....It was gang related...is that what I heard??? Wow....killing someone because if a stupid gang issue.....unreal

Are some of you seriously reading what you have written before you click post? Jordan's parents just lost their child! As if they aren't filled with remorse and guilt as it is, leave it to some overly adamant people to place the blame where it need not be. There's a time and a place where some opinions should be kept tactfully silent. Is it your right to post and share? Absolutely, but please have some respect.

I love you Jordan! We'll meet again someday.

What, if you don't mind me asking, makes him so "guilty"? Let me ask you: if you or your child were killed the second time you had been in something such as a car wreck, would it be fair to say, "you had it coming to you" simply because you chose the potentially dangerous activity of driving and had this misfortune fall upon you more than once? I'd like you to imagine what your friends and family would say if someone ever said something like that.
