My close friend was shot in the Back 5 times walking home from night school in brentwood. Whats going on with our town. The people in this town that commit these crimes are disgusting and need to be taken out. Brentwood is becoming a warzone & living here is not safe. My friend and I were in school today comming out the caferteria thinking, what would happen if a shoot out broke out in the lobby. It scares the hell out of us and something needs to be done. Suffolk county cops and the government have not been doing enough for our community. This has been goin on for years now, WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO STOP IT AFTER SO MUCH TIME? Its too late. Brentwood is no longer what it used to be

I believe that it isn't to late. All these kids that are in gangs should be put away for a year in a real jail with real criminals cause that is what they are and what they will become in the future. Why was this child walking home at 10:45 at night. Where are the parents? I feel bad for him but was this a random shooting or was this because he was also in a gang. Stop playing the "he is such a good kid how could this happen to him" card. It sucks that these parents are also so blinded by their children. First of all if you want to stop this it has to start at home. If you live in Brentwood don't let your child walk the streets at night. Find out who they are hanging out with. If you find out they are a part of these gangs then do something to help them get out of it. If that means moving away than isn't that better than burying your child. The immigration department needs to go into every house and find the illegals. Most of the MS13 parents are propably illegal. Send their asses back with their kids. Let them go fight in their own damn country. Why are we allowing these kids to go to school with our children when they don't want anything better for themselves. Put a curfew in Brentwood of 9 pm. Anyone walking the streets after that should be arrested. There is no reason why teenagers should be out after that time without a parent. Like i said it starts at home. Ask yourself if you know for sure your child is not in a gang and if you know where they are after 9...

What exactly should the SCPD and 'the government' be doing, hold everyones hand in Brenthood? Why aren't people being gunned down in towns with little to no minorities, a mere coincidence, I think not. What tactics are the police using in those towns that you would like to be implemented in Brenthood? Bring on the convoluted reasoning and excuses we've heard them before.

1st, This Kid Was Walking Home From Night School. He Goes To School Both During The Day and Takes Night Courses So He Can Graduate Early. Its Called "Doubling Up". He Is Doing That So That He Can Have His Diploma and Get a Start on Obtaining a Better Job To Be Able To Provide For His Family. What You DONT Know is That 6 Years Ago, His Father Was Murdered By Gang Members. He, At The Age of 10, Stood Before The Jury And Asked That They Sentence His Father's Killers. His Mother? She Was Home Taking Care of His Siblings Waiting For His Return.
You Are Lightning Quick To Judge, But You Don't Know That This Kid Is Trying To Do Good Even Though He Has Every Strike Going Against Him. You Cannot Expect Unreasonable Request Such as "Sending Them Back To Their Country" Because They Will Have a Family Reunion Dinner, Then Turn Around and Come Right Back To This Country Because This IS The Land Of Many Opportunities. Look Back Through YOUR Heritage and Somewhere Along The Family Tree, Your Ancestors Came Here For The Same Reasons. A Year In Jail is a TREAT Because They Will Be Fed, Housed, Clothed and Given Opportunitites to Earn Degree's. And No, He Isn't a Gang Member. Just Because He Is Latino and From Brentwood Does NOT Make Him or Any Other Latino Boy a Gang Member. MANY Latino Boys In This Community Are Good Kids Whom Most Go on To College. That Is Amazing Since Brentwood High School Is The LARGEST In The ENTIRE!! N.Y.S. and As For The Immigration, They Are Backed Up Beyong YEARS of Doing Anything. Its So Typical of How Most People PASS ON The Blame To Others. Rather Than Post What Americans Should Do, Why Dont YOU DO Something Yourself? Join Your Comminity in Helping Our Youth With After School Programs and With Sports. If Your Community Doesn't Fund Them, Well What The HELL Is Wrong With You Not Being Able To Start One on Weekends That Anyone Can Join and Have The Parents Take Turns Bringing Water and Fruits To The Kids? Its Called, Getting Involved, And Teaching Your Own Kids To Do The Same and Doing Something With These Kids. I've Been Doing It For Many Years and I've Seen LOTS of "My" Kids Grow Into STRONG Independant College Educated Young Adults Who Also Pay It Forward. Rather Than Talk, Take Some Type Of Action. We Can ALL Do SOMETHING or You Can All Do Nothing and Pass The Blame. As For a 9pm Curfew, You Seem To Forget LOTS of Kids Have Jobs at the Mall and at Fast Food Places and MANY Stores Close at 9:30 but the Employees Remain Till 11pm-12am To Stock and Clean The Stores. Do You Suggest We Arrest These Teens For Being In The Streets On Their Way Home From Work? THAT Isn't a Reality.
The ONLY Thing I Agree With Is, That YES, It ALL Starts In The Homes. Parents, STOP Being Afraid of Your Kids and Stand Up To Them. They ARE YOUR Responsibilities. Fathers, MAN UP and Get Involved. You Want To See Change? Then Change The Way You Raise Your Kids. CHANGE YOUR HOME and We Can Change Our Communities!

awww poor boy from walking home from night school shot in the back. Sounds more like he was running from a gunfight and got what he justly deserved. Another POS off our streets. Why have the SCPD clean the streets when the "gangstas" are doing it already? Props to MS 13. Kill your own families and your own people and Brentwood will be what it used to be once again.:D
