God Bless the family and friends of these two young men. When I see their pictures it breaks my heart. How could kids in our community feel so hopeless? What are we as a community doing wrong?

This has been a tragedy. We are not teaching our kids like we should. We leave it up to TV, video games, violent movies, and lord knows what else. These kids need examples to live by. Not drug addicts and out of control peers.
God Bless

They needed an adult to talk to must have felt like they couldn't. The adults of this community have failed them.God rest their souls and try to not let this happen again.

It is bound to happen again. It happens every where due to teens who think they are adult and they act on impulse. Gangs, broken families, rap music, lack of decent nutrition. These kids never stood a chance.

How about that little black girl who sang at the inauguration. She died because some thug probably gang related hopped a fence at a play ground and started shooting at the children playing. This is some thing that is going to continue to happen. These types of children used to come in my class room and lay their heads on there desks sound asleep. Up all night and sleep during class. They had opportunity but decided to sleep it away.

Murray I really don't know why you keep commenting. Since when do we blame the victim? Our community is failing our youth these boys could have been talked out of this. Did you ever think the kids that feel asleep during class maybe had a rough home life? See what I mean so compassion not even a helping hand. No 2 people's lives are the same so everyone can't be expected to behave the same. We are supposed to have compassion. I'm sure you were a great teacher(sarcasm) with your views.
God bless

Bottom these kids thought this was their last resort. It's sad because it wasn't and they felt they had nobody to go to in this community. Just look at this website all the junk and cruel ness. Don't blame on t.v. Or video games its parents responsibilities but also a community that is supportive instead of harsh and judgemental.

My class was top notch. Students came to learn not sleep. What goes on in there home life is none of my business. They have opportunities like every one else. I can only guide them for help. They choose to live a life of crime. I can't control that. From reading your post's what have you done.
God bless

I have done what I can . You are just another cold fish.Turning a blind eye doesn't make you innocent. If you see a man bleeding in the street it's your obligation as a human being to stop and help. To do otherwise just makes you cold and uncaring why would anyone come to you for help?
God bless

Maybe one day you will understand. It's like the video of the guy that got hit by the car and nobody on the sidewalk stopped to help him. I'm not one of those people I will help someone anyway I can thats what we are here for. Regardless of your religion you are supposed to care about your fellow man help him up not kick him down. I'm not perfect I struggle with people everyday but I always try because without that we are nothing.
