HA HA HA. Out on a warrant for the same criminal act he was killed doing. What a great loss to our communities. He was a "2003 graduate of Woodside High School"(wasted tax payers dollars) and a member of the "First Baptist Church Denbigh". I guess he really never heard anything said at either places.

thats truely uneccesary... If u do not have anything positive to say or dont know peoples real situations pls dont speak on stuff you have no knowledge about. Ignorant people with no morals or any type of understanding of what goes on always comment just to get attention...I knew Tommy personally and the shooting took place walking distance from my home. I have lost 3 friends all under the age of 23 the past three yes who all lived in the same neighborhood as me and NONE OF THEM deserved it. Not even Tommy...R.I.P. Tommy Canty Jr.

I will never understand why people put themselves in these situations. Sounds like they both are getting what they deserved.

Regaurdless of what ignorant people have to say, Tommie was a dear friend of mine and a lot of people I knew. NO ONE deserves to go this way. I know he is in a better place now and Thank God they possibly found the guy who shot him. All I ask is that people have some respect for the dead.
I love you TJ and may you always rest in peace! <3

I knew Tommie and his family as well. Noone deserves to be killed in that manner. It was simply his time to go,hopefully his leaving this earth won't be in vain. We as a community need to stay prayed up,you never know what YOUR child is going to do with his or her life. All we can do as parents is to love and encourage them to do the best they can. After they are grown and on their own there is not much you can do about the decisions/choices they make in life.
To those that made the ignorant comments watch out YOUR kids/grandkids have to grow up some day, becareful about pointing fingers or finding fault in others you may have to experience the same thing or worse that we as TJ's family and friends have gone through.

I read the article and I stand by my remarks. "He didn't deserve it". Are you serious? He was selling drugs on our streets. Sounds to me like you need a new circle of friends.

raise your kids right and they won't die while committing a crime. I have raised two fine young men. They are not criminals. I will point my finger. I have no sympathy for these thugs that walk OUR streets and make them unsafe. Instead of being upset with me, why not be upset with the family that cultivated this thug. Obviously no values were instilled in him. Thank God it was one criminal killing another criminal.

That's why the black community is so effed up they don't see drug dealers as bad people.Murderers kill for one of 3 reasons drugs greed or lust.But mostly drugs and greed with are almost the same apple.This man was killing his community.T he punishment might not fit the crime.But live by the sword.....

Looking at the suspects picture that guy was at Tj's his funeral. Standing in the back with dark shades on. I saw him and he looke suspect.I hope he was there paying respects and he may be sorrowful for what he has done. I just say keep both of them in prayer. I'm sure they both had some good in them...Leave the negative comments out...You are talking about lifes here people and no matter what anyone says about TJ...He was saved and came to church faithfully.

I am so glad we got a killer off the street. No matter what the business transaction was don't give a person a right to kill another person. The problem I see is that kids with guns are taken over our community. It's time for the honest God fearing people to reclaim our street. Some one is putting guns in these young black men hands. We need to find we need to find the source and shut it down!

(Tired of Ghettos) have you ever lived in the ghetto? How do you figure Tommie did?Apparently you have your issues about alot of things going on in the ghetto. If it was such a problem toyou I think instead of putting down people you don't even know why don't you offer your condolences to the family. And if you are out trying to make a difference in the community why open your mouth. No I'm not mad or upset with comments made you are enititled to your opinion by all means. But never say never whether it was a drug deal or somebody killing somebody for no reason at all.What you fail to realize nobody and I repeat nobody is perfect. And if you feel you are news flash unless you are god almighty you aren't, haven't and will never be perfect. So again out of RESPECT!!! for the Canty family I'd ask if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all because whether you think so or not this was still someone's son, brother,father,uncle,cousin,ne phew and grandchild and nobody but god will stand judge of his actions.And best believe there are truly alot of innocent people that get killed everyday just imagine if it was one of your boys. Just think for a moment how you would feel if you read all this negativity said about one of them?

this tommy person was arrested for dealing drugs and was out n bond and what does he do? meets another crack head and trys to do a deal on xmass eve,yes he must of gotten involved in something much bigger than he could handle.. my question is where was all of you when he needed you? your on here defending him saying all of the good he was, did any of you know he was involved in dealing and smoking crack or what ever ? hes lost his life and his family is in sorrow, sounds like he grew up in a nice area. you should let this be a lesson to the ones you care about.. if they need help then you should be there for them, a funeral is not the place to keep seeing your friends..

So this guy never lived in a ghetto, and was a man of God? I find that a little hard to imagine. Dealing crack on the eve of your savior's birth doesn't really qualify as a man of God in most eyes. If he was such a great f-in person then he wouldn't be on the streets dealing drugs. If he didn't live in the ghetto and wasn't poor, then why did he make the decision to be involved in drugs in the first place? Oh I get it, no ones perfect and everyone makes mistakes blah blah.... Sure everyone makes mistakes but not to that degree. I don't consider myself a man of God, but I'm not out selling crack on Christmas Eve. This guy was a piece of trash and was going to end up costing society more by rotting in a jail cell or selling more drugs to kids. I don't plan to change the opinion of all you wise noble people defending this hood rat, but just remember his death was a blessing.

You know what, you need to stop. I know his family very well and they have instilled morals and values in him. You CANNOT blame his family, who loved him and prayed for him to make better decisions. I agree with the Nurse who said you try to raise your children the best way you know how and then they make their own decisions. You are lucky, at best, that your kids are not criminals, but you have to be completely STUPID id you don't think good people can make bad decisions or that people who come from good homes go the wrong way. No one deserves to die so violently, regardless. I understand what you're TRYING to say, you are just going to cause problems because of HOW you're saying it. He was a good person who made bad decisions, we all do it from time to time, on various scales so please have some kind of respect. You never know if your grandkids or someone down the line will be in the same situation. You will know your kids or someone in your family raised them to make better decisions and they still do their own thing and something as tragic as this happens. If nothing at all, at least have some respect for his family, who will read these comments. You aren't making anything any better and if you're so sick of ghettos, please stand up and do something about it. Less talk, more action. It's sad that something like this had to happen to him and as much as I wish he made better choices, he was shown the right way to go, but made his own decisions about what he thought he wanted. Maybe he thought it was cool, maybe he thought it was fun; we don't know, but I can tell you with all the essence of my being that that is not what he was taught so please leave this alone and let the man rest and pray NO ONE in your family ever meets the same fate so you'll never have to know the pain we're experiencing or what it feels like when someone makes such crazy comments cloaked with disdain while putting up the front that you mean something positive. Be easy and show him FAMILY some respect. Done deal!

Don't sell drugs. How many other lives did he ruin by pushing crack? Maybe even to kids?
