This is so tragic and was so unnecessary. My prayers are with the Stairs family. Those teens need to pay for what they've done. I don't care if 3 of them were under 18, they need to be tried as adults and be put away for life. They know right from wrong and where the hell are their parents????

Yes, there's a lot to like about Lowell. Where else might you get stabbed to death while walking home from the store in the early evening by a roving gang of knuckle-dragging recidivists? It's time for a real rain to come and wash the scum off the streets, Travis.

In fact, next time you see one of these punks in a black-hooded sweatshirt (seems as if every crime perpetrated lately in Lowell has only one descriptive device - the hooded sweatie), take him out!

These three useless scumbags need to be put down like the animals they are. Even animals know enough not to attack unless being attacked or kill only for food. These three scumbags don't have enough intelligence to be part of the human race. These wanna be gangsters are pathetic. My heart goes out to the Stairs family.

I think this story is sickening. Its become so crazy and reckless that your not able to do much of anything w/out having problems w/ these kids that have something to prove!! Now an innocent person is gone, children w/out a father because of five dollars. Where are their gang buddies now?

Wow, I thought most of the gang members in Lowell are Cambodians. But these punk gangster wannabes are hispanic. Shocking! I hope they get tried as adults and rot in prison for the rest of their retarded lives.

R.I.P. Timothy Stairs. I'm sorry your life is cut short too soon.

Gang initiation? Pathetic and disgusting. About 3 months ago I was attacked in Lowell with my boyfriend..these scumbags are all around and something serious needs to be done to get these gangs off the streets. the man who punched me in the face had no regrets and was never caught, put these pathetic,low lifes in jail, attacking someone for $5 and beer? All these gang members...BE A MAN and do something with your pathetic life.

Well hope the Lowell courts do not just give them a slap on the wrist and couple of years. Beacause this was not accident they need to be put away for a long long time.

Okay, CAMBODIANS Are Not The Only Gang Bangers . There Are Many Hispanic And Whites And Asians In Gangs. Red, Blue, Yellow. Yeah Those, Even More.
Well Yes, I Know Alexis G, & Boy I Am Shocked. I Hope The Stairs Family Is Doing Alright. Gangs Are Really Dumb .-______-.

Animals are better than some Humans
and we treat them worse. They put a
little nip and we put them down,and the humans get maybe prison time.

Alexis Garcia is a moron. Glad he is tried as an adult.

Matthew Cancel is a monkey. Glad he can swing in prison for the rest of his life.

Pablo Roman is a wangster. Glad he lost his ability to kill again.

Jose Pedrosa is a fart. Glad he could see naked men take dump in prison.

I know one of these kids! I taught him in fifth grade and he was a really good kid. Life never turns out to be what you expected. They make decisions that ruin other people's lives. My deepest sympathy goes to the Stair's family. May he rest in peace. I hope his children can be helped because this is going to be hard on them.

This case is beyond disturbing. Also, since they are all being tried as adults, please remove the term juvenile
from the description of the two 15 years olds. What they did is very serious and beyond juvenile delinquency.

If these 15 years olds are being identified in the newspaper, it means they are being tried as adults, which means that they have previous criminal history. I really dont want to hear this 'good kid' stuff - its too late for that
