LOL Okay, Mr. Hooked On Phonics what did I spell wrong? A kid got stabbed because of what? Who he hangs with? Wrong side of the court? Wrong color on? I-pod wasn't enough? Those are ALL such valid reasons to stick someone right? And another thing if you know so much why don't you tell Homicide Squad?

Hempstead High school Security and Teachers know that students gather there after school. Thats where most students spent there time after school or in the morning chilling or palying "suicide" which is a AKA for handball. Also its a gang ground.

WE WILL MISS YOU MIK3Y.. U WILL ALWAYS B3 IN OUR H3ARTS <3 <3.. D3 UNA..

my condolences to the family of Michael my brother knew him so im sorry for your loss I am a Cpl in the Marines i left the town of hempstead for this reason to better my life and to stay away from crime. I didn't know Michael but if you knew that hempstead was so bad why let him go to hempstead high in the first place. I went to hempstead high for 4 yrs and i was never jumped on the school premises so therefore he must of had some sort of beef or problems with somebody cause he was the only one stabbed think about out of three people they only target one the sounds really fishy to me ask your older son if they go to the same school he probably knows more about if Michael was hanging with his boys or gang members i went to that school and i was never messed with so there is something in this story that is not being told. I really don't think you should be suing the school either money is not gonna make him come back to life. I know that my brother is not going to be going to hempstead next year cause of this type of violence i've seen and witness first hand. I know for a fact too that the handball court is behind a bunch of trees and its a bit secluded so why would he be chilling there in the first place. It is very sad cause i've lost plenty of my family to gangs but hempstead doesn't have 10 million dollars i barely got an education when i went to that school. I recommend moving to the south North Carolina move there way more peaceful been there trust me. I know that you are probably hurt but that is not the only solution. I really am pissed about the fact all people care about is to know what the culprits race is like it matters and the fact they are blaming illegal aliens is stupid because most of them work hard it is not them trust me this was done by the kids that were born in the states but if it makes ya feel any better blame my people persecute the people that do all the jobs none of yall would do. I love hempstead cause thats were i grew but its the fact that our Principal,SECURITY Guards and Super Intendent are a bunch of worthless scum that its not safe there. The police department is corrupt and there are plenty racist cops patrolling long island what we need is change. I just want people who talk about change all the time to do something about it not just say things cause it makes them feel good about themselves. I am going back some how if the Marine Corp permits it i will be stationed in New York and will be involve in the lives and growth of these kids because they aren't all bad they just aren't given the chance to succeed we don't really have scholarships for our atheletes hempstead needs work and our mayor ain't doing it so get rid of her fast. I don't really believe half the people posting anything really care but I do because i went to that school sorry for this tragedy keep ya head up and god bless
Sincerely,
Reiner Villatoro Cpl USMC

Bottomline, there needs to be more security hired by the district---ones with the expertise needed to turn that school around. I am not talking about individuals who are only there to collect a weekly paycheck. Come on, hire experienced individuals like myself!!!!!! Where can I apply?

I have been in that school before, and it is a very dangerous place. The security is not tight at all and the school's metal detectors don't even work. I can't believe that mikey is gone. All of his friends including me miss him so much. The guys who has killed him will fuckin pay for it. Since mikey died, no one has been the same. I left hempstead high school in october 2007 because of me going through social aniety and I never got a chance to see him again. I wish I could go back in time and change this horrible tradgedy. But unfortunately I can't. R.I.P mikey. And I will pray for your family as hard as I can.

If they were illegal aliens and I don't know for sure, The santuary city and county are to blame for these thugs roaming around stabbing people! Why did this coward kill the boy , when they had already taken all the valuables? Was it just the cowards way to hurt the family, or just the brutal upbringing, Hope you never sleep again you c o c k s u c k e r !

My sympathies, prayers, and condolences to friends and family that lost a loved one.
The perpetrators should receive the most severe punishment available, no excuses!
A lawsuit SHOULD be filed - money won't bring back the deceased or compensate the family for their loss, but maybe it will force this failed school district to take care of Job 1 - protect the kids!

"Situation under control" ??? Another young life gone! New York State should take over the school district as they did with Roosevelt, and bring professionals in to run and safeguard the children.
