I agree the son is partially responsbile for the death of his brother. Maybe his pennance will be telling his tale to all at risk kids before they join gangs. This story should be required reading for all kids. These gangs are cancers on societies devouring and destroying all they touch without providing any benefit to anyone. Until we the people stand together against these cowards they will continue to lure young boys in and turn them into criminals.

Yeah though the brother was the"target" they should have never done what they did weather it was for him or anyone else. It's sad for this family to go thru this and then have people to try to excuse what these kids did and think it's ok. IT'S NOT OK. They should be give them the death penalty. Gangs are bad to our society and need to stay away and everytime they kill innocent or not they should be given the death penalty.

Jorge was a wonderful kid. He didn't deserve this. His brother will have to live with this the rest of his life.

Yes, the first mistake was that the brother joined a gang in the first place.

Associating or affiliating with a gang...ANY GANG is not a positive way to lead your life. His brother did the right thing by leaving the gang.

LET SOCIETY SEE THAT THERE IS NOTHING A GANG EVER DOES THAT IS GOOD FOR OUR CITIZENS, SOCIETY, AND COMMUNITY!

Vadalism, higher crime, anger, hatred, alcohol & drug abuse, larsony, theft, abuse, graffiti, disrespect for the law, law biding citizens, bad influences to our children, poor role models, low self-esteem...

It starts with embracing the children and teaching them the importance of education, being respectful to others, and most importantly be better than they ever thought they could be..so they can grow to be productive positive adult members of society who will raise their children to do the same!

THE CHOICE IS YOURS!

It doesnt matter what the reason was, for killing that boy they should all be fried. Gangs are cowards in crowds. Low lifes, instead of jail put their asses to the military (infantry) and since they wanna kill each other anyway let them die for our country.

If you know so much, do you job as a citizen and tell them who it is. Why waste tax payer dollars on a wild goose chase when people have the information needed but are not telling to protect a criminal. Their job would be a lot easier if people that saw what happened told the truth, if they didn't have to break down witnesses they way they used to break down suspects, and if someone hears something they would report that to the police so it could be checked out.

No. Not a "Moran", and not particularly old. But someone who regularly hires young people in entry level positions. There are many young people who do NOT text, speak, or spell like this. And they are the ones I hire. Consider that if you ever want to be successful in this cruel world. I'm done talking to you now, as you make my head hurt.
