No matter what the man's past was, he didn't deserve to die like he did, nor does he deserve the disrespectful comments.

I didn't know the man personally, but that doesn't matter.
Respect and manners should be universal no matter what.

Family and friends of Mr. Dula, I am sorry that you're going
through all this, and I am sorry that people are so mean hearted.

Trust me on this, a girl and another dude got arrested in connection. How do you think they know where to search for the murder weapon because they are scared and coughing up information. Police are not going to release the information to the public because its still a pending investigation. Do your homework and you will find out!!! West End 4life

I agree with those that say he didn't deserve to die like this. Oolie was well liked in the community. I feel bad for his mother and the rest of his family.
May justice be done.

Because he was black and the killer was white. That is really all they need in their minds to make this a race issue when there was likely more to it. As someone else stated plainly, the police are still investigating and I am sure when all is said and done there will be more people involved, more to the story etc. I am not for making this a race issue. No one knows the whole story yet.

I could undertand if nothing was being done. That is what confused me-as the law has one in custody and is still investigating. I don't understand what the NAACP could do that would further things along.

Their is more to this and when the truth does come out everyone will know that it's more black people involved with this then the whit people that did him this way. This needs to be about justice not the color of your skin

I am just saying, that I hope there is justice served in this case and not sweep under a rug like the 2 black boys at West Caldwell years ago. Where the 2 white boys killed 2 black boys. The NAACP should have gotten invited in on that one too but was not. I went to school with Terry, Randall and Raoul and they ALL were damn good people ! Just because the color of the skin , some people want to be stupid and say stuoid things, but no body knows the whole story as to what happened but I know 1 thing for sure , NO ONE SHOULD BE KILLED OVER ANYTHING SUCH AS DRUGS OR WHATEVER !! We do not know if it was over drugs or money or guns or what. What I do know is that EVERYONE should keep BOTH the families involved in Prayers ! Not only did Raoul's family loose their son, but someone else lost their son or daughter as well when they took this boys life. God bless them ALL !!!!!

I remember very well all four years that I spent at West Caldwell. Every year there was some sort of racial conflict.
At least twice that I know of the conflict was based on black males putting their hands on white females, and the girls told their boyfriends. I personally from my own experience know that there were black guys that did that even when told to keep their hands to themselves. Understand what I am saying-it wasn't all the black males, but it doesn't take but one person to start a mess. There are some people that are so racially prejudice they look for a reason for a fight, and then there are some that will endure to keep the peace.

I graduated before 1991 when the deaths happened at West. I have to wonder why nobody noticed the situation to put a stop to it to begin with-didn't somebody notice escalation in interaction between the ones who actually started the whole thing? Didn't anyone notice the weapons? Are people so blind and cowardly that rather than step in and prevent, they'd rather bury their heads in the sand? The whole thing was jacked up, but all along it was a head of steam waiting for just the right time to blow.

Unfortunately, people don't understand that if you have a problem with another person, there are much better ways to deal with the problem than to fight and kill each other. Likewise, people need to learn if it isn't their fight not to jump in acting like it is just because it's your cousin or your whatever. Gang mentality shows weakness. If you can't walk it alone, then don't talk it.
