If you knew anything about either one of those boys you would know it was an accident. No there should'nt have been a gun. But it was a freak accident that has influenced MANY people.

Justin was a great young man. " miss him" I hate to say it, but the young person who shot Justin needs to go to jail.
I know all these kids " that makes it harder" to understand why this happen.
Justin is in a better place.NOW"

The boy that shot Justin I went to school with and I can personally say he did not do this intentional I have known him or many years an he would never do soemthing like that he shouldnt go to jail because it wasnt on purpose... Why do ppl think someone should be punished for not meaningh too when he pays already in his own mind everyday

Life Lesson:
Redneck pulls out a shotgun in a crowd, screams, "Who wants some!!??", and fires off a round in a big group of people. At that point he's wielding a deadly weapon with intent to kill. He brought the circumstance, he brought the mayhem, he brought the outcome of death.
Life Sentence....No Question.
What a shame a kid had to die over another kid's bruised ego. Too bad, but the idiot kid shooter just signed his life away. Probably a good thing, because he probably would have been one of those guys who kill a movie theater full of men, women, and children later in life through the same sense of self entitlement power to kill as we see right here... Hope the retard rots in jail.

So sad. R.I.P. We all had so much fun at those places. Now it's all built up and can't get to any of "our" lakes anymore. Y'all be careful not to ruin what's left of Florida for yourselves and the rest of us.
Now a young man lost his life. Please learn everything you can from this.
