If you guys truly believe that is Brittany Ritter, you are on worse drugs than her mom and herself.

who gives a flying fu** if he was a gang member he was still human....how would u like it if one of ur kids got killed and then u come and find out hes part of the KKK would u say "F*** it he was in a gang" or would u love him the same even if he chose the life style of a gang member. B.S so wat if he was in a gang HE WAS HUMAN!
I'm not sure who you are, but I've lived in Lebanon all of my life. I've never had to deal with being jumped, and I've never had to do with gang violence. I've seen many friends get jumped as a result of gang violence and some even seriously hurt as a result of gang violence. If you're not involved with it, there's no way for you to get hurt as a result of it. It's that simple. The point is that he wasn't royalty. I understand that he's dead and I would never dream of disrespecting his memory, but to claim that he was a law abiding citizen and that he was simply an innocent bystander is something that everyone here knows is untrue. He was involved in the dispute somehow or another. It's sad that things happened the way they did, and that a mother lost her son, and that children lost their father, but perhaps if he would've been in a different walk of life, this wouldn't have happened.

I wish that Lebanon would go back to being the same safe community it used to be. Now it's all gang activities, under aged sex, drugs, and etc., It's sickening to see how badly Lebanon is deteriorating.

I want this story on the front page every day. The coroner's report is news and confirms the story we've heard. The darned paper is finally doing what it should be doing and people blast them for it.
Maybe because you want this to just go away and we can all pretend it didn't happen and that Sasha, her mother, Steven, Jamie, Brenda and all the crap that is involved in this story were all really decent and moral law abiding citizens who just made a few bad choices.
By the logic of a lot of the postings in the various articles concerning this story you'd have us believe that the prisons are just full of really good people, wonderful parents. So what if they did drugs, so what if they neglected their children, so what if they killed somebody. I'm really disgusted by the excuse mentality present here.
Now go ahead and call me a racist even though I mentioned no race. Accuse me of not personally knowing these people. If my best friend commits a crime, he's a criminal. He's wrong. No excuses, no justification because he had choices just like everybody else and he choose to do the wrong thing. No he needs to pay the penalty for his crime and if he changes he has the opportunity to become a good person. Until then, he's a criminal.
Why hasn't Ritter been arrested. She's and all of the people in this fight were guilt of violation article 705.1 of the city ordinances? Every one of them should have at least been cited. Why hasn't Sasha's mother been arrested? Her child was a minor and the gun was illegally being kept in her apartment, that makes mom accountable?
Sorry I only just discovered these comments as I find them very entertaining and much cheaper than purchasing the tabloids. Who is Brenda?

Of course there was always crime, but not this sensless punk stuff throwing their lifes away, and attacking random people in alley ways. Like it takes balls for five people to jump some drunk at 3:00 am. Running to their mommies as soon as the police comes calling. We used to be men, we did it and lived up to it. Stop making excuses and say "That is who he was, died how he lived, and proud of it"

All these post about him been such a great caring person, you make him look like a pu&^% like the rest of ya'all. Give the guy some respect and admit that you know it may happen and you are OK with that because that is what you choose. Of all you wanna be gangsters it took a 16 year old girl in plain light mid afternoon to do the Sh&^ that you all hide in alleyways at night to do. PU&^%ES! You are all a bunch of narcs too, I know all of ya!

Enough, he was an affiliated gang member who knew the consequences. He took pride on exposing his gang affiliation, drinking, and drug use. I'm sure his parents and family feel bad. It's natural. That does not mean we have to feel bad. We are actually happy. This filth ruins our schools for those who want to learn, they bring down property values, live off government handouts and contribute nothing to society. Cry me a river somewhere else. I don't care about race all these thugs regardless of race should eradicate themselves and save the tax payers some money.
As for the family, I understand they had a loss...but I am not sorry. Now they can get some sleep instead of worrying if anything bad is going to happen...guess what? it did.
wo steven did no such thing and family is greving right now you never even new him he was never in a gang so i don't know what your talking about! He always hung out with his friends and helpin others ok! he worked and was always trying to be the best that he could be. Don't post a coment if you don't know the person because the fact is you didn't know him. How would you feel if i said your in a gang im glad your dead and everyones happy about it know one would be well now i hope they are!

That whole Ritter family is trash, they have always been trouble makers trying to pick a fight with anybody they can. Both darnella and her daughter jumped me and my sister as we were walking down ninth street with my baby's and my sisters small daughters. I was pregnant at the time and when I was yelling for her to get off cause I'm pregnant she started kicking me in my stomach. What kind of grown ass woman 40+ pick fights with a 20 and 23 year old girl, especially when their small children are there watching the whole thing go down. Sad and pathetic, they should be euthanized.

Brittany and her fat manly mother was trash from the first time I saw that fat bitch pregnant on 9th st with Shawns baby and Darnella is a loser who hadf to mess with underage boys because no man her age would want her. She satrted rumors about me having AIDS and shit and then jumped my sister who was pregnant at the time dirty hoes had it coming and I pray they remove her children because if not they will be fucked up like the rest of the trash. hope yall burn in hell ugly fat nasty trash you all are.
