JT was changing his life and I hope Eric gets wat he deserves because he took my brother's life for a reason that didn't happen. Eric is a lame who can't grow up!!

Jt. I didnt know you or your family, I do believe people have a right to their opinions however, some of these opinions are better kept to themselves.My prayers go out to your Mother and Father and the rest of your family.

He didnt do any harm? How about the boy that he pointed the gun at? How about the people who were present that had to run in fear that he would shoot one of them. You live by the sword, you die by the sword!

Julian "J.T." Melendres, 22, who court documents state is an admitted gang member.
Who needs to know anything more?
One down. One done. Please let Eric out on parole. He can join J.T. in a nanosecond.
In the meantime, Eric...enjoy your newfound loves.
Try not to walk like a camel when you appear in court the first time, Love.
It's always so revealing...that barely moving your bottom shuffle...
A far cry from your gansta shuffle...huh? Marquez...die in the shadow of the bars...you pig.
stupid idiot speak for youself, I guess you speak from experience you must know what it feels like to barley move and shuffle your bottom, Eric was no gang member he was a family man only trying to protect his family from this drive by shooters that had nothing better to do with their lives. inform yourself right before you blaber your big mouth. get a life.

We live in little LC, NM and this is whats going on in our back yard...I am disgusted by what Im reading...how are people going to judge who is trash? Are you God or something? Grow up people...the tabloids are just news to you but there are people who ARE hurting now and forever from this. It may not be you, but have a heart & take a GOOD LOOK AROUND YOU!! This town has a gang problem! And although killing everybody off may sound like a good idea to some...I really do have to ask is this world we are living in today? Where even the "good" people come accross so evil? I'll pray for all you!
