Is it worth losing our children over such poor choices. Maybe we say the police are too agressive, maybe we say the child driver made poor choices. Bottom line, it's not worth the death. Today our kids have not real choices, no place for them to express them selfs, no real heros to look up to. If we want to tell the real truth it's all of our faults. It does take a community to raise a child.

Nope - it takes parents, parenting and basic care and direction to raise a child.

Police too aggressive?????
If I am not mistaking, was this kid in a stolen car? If so, oh well..... Look who was too aggressive. I'm just thankful that an INNOCENT police officer or other innocent bystander/citizen was not injured. I am so sick of thugs getting shot by the police or getting killed in accidents or what have you, and the police are blamed for it. What about the criminals? Let's have this guy comment about the criminals. Thank You

If the cops didn't pursue, they would be accused of not doing their job. If the police do pursue and the driver gets hurt, it's always the cops fault... with the public's attitude, the cops can never win.

A person can make a decision to run from the cops, and if they do, they should know that the cops will follow them. The police have lots of training for chases, criminals usually don't. From watching the news, World's wildest/scariest/deadliest police chases, Cops, etc., it should be common knowledge that you could get killed running from the cops. It's a risk, and if you're willing to take it, you should be willing to pay the price.

No, it is not worth losing our children over such poor choices. They need to stop making poor choices, like running from the cops, or stealing cars. My generation (I'm 22) needs to learn responsibility. Parents are too worried about being a kid's best friend or themselves, rather than being a parent.

These two had loaded guns in the car too ,according to the news reports.Nice kids.Misunderstood maybe.It couldn't be that these two contributed to their situation.Making poor choices? Stealing from the local drug store,skipping school,mouthing to your parents,these are poor choices.Riding around w/loaded heaters in a dark alley is criminal!!!!!!Ask yourself this type of question:You catch a burglar in your home @3:00 am with your jewelry and you blast him,do you cry about him getting killed over a couple hundred $$$$ worth of your jewelry or do you say he got what he deserved?The media and the social worker and activist will say the former. Poor choices my #%&ss.What do you suppose their plans were for the evening ?Community service maybe,helping the blind ,or walking old folks across the street?When they decide to be criminals ,they are no longer categorized as children, they are crooks.I'm going to protect myself any way I can against these thieves ,liars ,punks,thugs and druggies .I suggest you do the same.Its them who you should fear, and stop dirtying the name and reputation of real children who are harmless and beautiful little people!!!!1

Did this guy "work" for a living? Did he hold a real, legitimate job? I doubt it. This is the case of one less mouth for us hard working law abiding citizens to feed. Any illegitimate children running around? Probably. I guess the police are supposed to turn their heads to thugs like this? I'm really surprised that Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson & Tim Stevens (or whoever the head of the NAACP is nowadays) aren't claiming racism yet. It's the officer's fault right? This idiot steals a car, is running from the police. Sounds like he got what he deserved. Fpope is right on the money.

I'm upset because i just asked my husband to go to that pizza shop and get a couple of square slices and he informed me that the shop closed down. Leave Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson out of this-these kids were in the wrong and although no one should die-unfortunatly they were not thinking about their lives. Not only did a kid loose his life but a man lost his business due to no fault of his own. I'm black and I can't find one racial issue in this. You run from the police and crash into a wall-the only color involved is red (blood). I thank the police for doing their job because if these kids were not stopped-what type of crime spree would they have been on-perhaps harming me in the future.

And furthermore-what is missing someone in the "trap". Not to be rude but when I think of a trap, I think of an animal. Is that how this kid lived his life, in a trap? How unfortunate.

Your English is in need of some improvement, i still miss u T-Bone. I'll fix it for you.

"[Man, fornicate whoever wrote negatively about the suspect. No, the car wasn't stolen female dogs, it was a rental.

Okay, if you don't know the whole story, then don't open your mouth, do you dig it? And, don't always believe what the news says because they lie sometimes. His mom was a good mom, okay? She just got over her other son's death. Some anus shot him for no apparent reason. Give her a fornicating break, okay?]"

Okay, I'll lay off of his mom for a second. Maybe this teenage boy was making poor decisions ever since he started forming his own opinion (which is what teenagers do). Sometimes teens turn out bad even with good parents (watch Maury).

The point is, he made the decision to run from the cops. If he had just pulled over, he could have gone to jail, but he would not have taken the risk of getting himself (or others) killed. If you ever watch Spike TV at 11:00AM on weekdays, you should know that if the cops want you to pull over, you better pull over.

Also, "i still miss you T-Bone," I can tell that you are in preschool or possibly kindergarten. Ask your mom or dad to get "Hooked on Phonics" for you. English is a hard language to learn, but when you get to first or second grade, you will do really well if you practice with "Hooked on Phonics." I didn't have the luxury of being able to afford "Hooked on Phonics," because my parents were on welfare and things were so tight that I had to live in the projects, Crawford Village. I had a post-high school reading level in seventh grade, but with "Hooked on Phonics," you could have a post-high school reading level by fifth grade. Good luck!

A rental car? No it was stolen, and even if it was a rental, you need to be 25 to rent and drive a rental car. I do not find much sadness for this boy in this incident. I feel sorrow only for his family, the community, the pizza shop owner, and even the police. This 17 year old man made conscience decisions that ended his own life. Stolen car, illegal guns, and high speed persuit? Let's just say he was on the fast track of a life of crime. He is lucky he did not kill anyone in the process. I think its typical of these citizens to put blame on the police. The police did exactly what we should expect them to do to keep law abiding citizens safe.

1st Let me say sorry to everyone who thought I was callin them female dogs. I respcet everyone comment on what the have to say.

2nd Sorry to tell you hereWegoSteelers but his mother rent it for him okay. Yes his mother rent it for him b/c it was the least she could for him b/c she had to give the other car that his brother give him when his brother die (personal reasons) after being shot in the back after coming home fr. the army.He was a good kid okay he was just about to graduate fr. high school. I dont know where you got that the car was stolen ( pro. fr. the news) but thats infomation is fasle.

I still miss u T-Bone... it is still illegal for a 17 yr old to drive a rental car, even if their mother rented it. Also, it is almost always illegal to drive at that time of the night if you are 17 (junior license). Also, it is illegal to speed, run from the police, and almost kill innocent people. And finally, it is also illegal to have any kind of gun (especially a hand gun) in your possession or car when you are only 17. This was not a good kid, and his decisions led to his death.
This incident should serve as a lesson to all those young "wanna be thugs" that the lifestyle will end up killing you.
