These were boys who should not have been out roming the streets, should not have been drinking alcohol either.

It is an unfortunate event and yes a child can be in the wrong place at the wrong time twice. Chris is a good kid as are most the other boys and they just need someone to belive in them and give them proper guidance and love. Parents need to be more involved with their teenager lives.

Ummm good kids maybe some, but Chris Overton is not a good kid. I drove him for 3 years of hell in Middle School. He was troubled then.

There's a difference between "toubled" and EVIL.

I think the latter description is more accurate.

1. you are right on point 1 you are right on but until recently most people were blind to that fact
2. your wrong, get your facts, look around you. Scared of the facts then DON'T go to FAIR, or support the mintutemen and when your job is given to an H1B worker or some other of the 14+ visa workers they bring into this country don't complain. Are you speaking of LEGAL IMMIGRANTS or ILLEGAL ALIENS? Calling the groups that are watching whats going on Klan-lite is like calling many of our most famous leaders a Klan member since they are watching out for this country.
3. What you call okey doke is reality. As for ANYONE who hires illegals they should be charged fined and the unions who turn a blind eye should also be punished. However, one of the biggest offenders is our own government whom for the last 30 years has failed to enforce the laws of our land these are BOTH democrats and republicans. By the way I was until this year one of those LIBERALS, until I realized they to were giving this country away, and NOT protecting the average working AMERICAN CITIZEN. Admittedly neither do the Republicans but I am totally discussed with the liberal global first America last mentality

When my godbrother who is a FAIR-SKINNED BLACK-AMERICAN and his wife were confronted by members of the Minutemen while living in Arizona minding his own business, I didn't need to know anything else about them. They don't know the difference and some of them have admitted that if the majority of immigrants came from Europe (illegal or legal)they would not have a problem.

Place the blame on the execs (who were just bailed out) and the policies, not the people who given a raw deal at the hands of our country getting into their former country's business (I.E. Regan's funding of the Death Squads in Central America, and The School of the Americas down in Ga) Both parties and corporate run media have screwed up hence why I use the name NY Independent.

Hi Daniel,

Lucero's murder has nothing to do with immigration, but people are trying to link it into immigration- Legal and Illegal (You notice that there are people saying, what happened was wrong, BUT...) when it REALLY has to do with the failure of adults (not necessarily parents)--some of these kids probably heard adults running their mouths off about Mexicans (maybe saw those protests in Farmingville, etc) and acted accordingly.

This is tragic. To quote a great American, Rodney King, "Can't we just all get along".

The tragic part is not actually the death .. heinous as it may be... Rather, it's unacceptable that someone's lawn will now be less than impeccably manicured.

Sorry but any 17 y/o that sticks a knife in someones chest is hardly a "good kid".

To the author AP Frank:

You slipped this little ditty in at the end of the article:
Advocates for Hispanics and others have spoken out against the killing, which took place days after Barack Obama was elected as the country's first black president.

What the heck does this have to do with anything? I voted for Mr. Obama, but I don't think that his election is a valid point in time to reference a crime of this nature. Does this mean that my son was born one month and four days before the election of Obama? I think it will do America a lot of good to not equate the election of Sen. Obama to office with the abolition of racism in our country, or even worse: Hate crimes. This tiny paragraph of the article is comical, and would've been just as fitting to insert a recipe for broasted chicken.

Lock them up. And then look at their parents and may be a few of them need to go to jail.
