Slow down Joe, just because someone is arrested doesn't mean they are guilty.

I read this with a heavy heart, knowing Gregory and his family personally.
I can't help but feel sorrow for both Gregory's family as well as the arrested boy and his family.

We have to try to keep our children safe and pray that the right person is taking off the streets.

Knowing both parties I am devasted by the whole thing, mostly for Rowell's family. He was one of my best friends; such a beautiful soul. Mr. Smith on the other hand was afraid of who he is so decided to take out someone who was comfortable in his own skin, and it just isnt right. I'll pray for him but his soul is required is hell at this point.

. Unless you are certain, be careful when you identify what skin he is in. remember things are not always what they seem. don't pass judgement you never know what life might throw at you. god bless you

I knew both parties and both were good kids. Mr. Smith is actually my cuz and i love him to death. I hope he didn't do it and the truth comes out. It might have been a relationship going bad but honestly i don't think Mr. Smith would do something like that. They grew up together as well. We all grew up together and it's a sad situation. I give my heart out to Greg's fam and my heart out to Booty. I love you Booty and you will get through this. If my cuz did do it then the truth shall set everyone free and have some closure.

. I think the Stamford Police department might want to speak with you, considering you know exactly what you are talking about. It seems to me that you might know what the motive was. They said the case is now an open investigation go help them out. We need more citizens such as yourself. let me guess you are part of the happy family cheerleading squad? make sure you bring your pom-poms with you. happy holidays

i believe he did it!!! this dude was gay as hell and didnt want no one to know....all you people talking about you feel sorry for him...for what?? He knew what he was doing when he did it...so he deserve whatever the justice system has in store for
him...why would someone trun them self in for a MURDER if they didnt do it!!! what he did was eatting him up inside and he couldn't take it anymore....so he turned him self in
smoking that **** and his conscious drove him crazy....
Thanks for your beliefs. Make sure you follow the case. Hope you are one of the jurors. let your voice be heard. Birds of a feather flock together. I am sure you must have flocked with him to know that he is gay as hell. Try keeping your mouth closed for once and not on something.

To comment on west side, it's very sad I use to live in stamnford and knew both of those young guys. One I went to church with and the other I just knew from the west side area. It's too bad they both were nice kids!!! I will continue to keep both family's in prayer for ever....
