I don't know how I ended up in this neighborhood, because i grew up far away from this end of the spectrum. Since moving to new haven i've discovered a lot of harsh realities, mainly about intolerence on everyone's part. Ignorance is running rampant, and when put behind a gun, ignorance is very powerful. It's wrong that i've become so apathetic toward these people. Killing each other over pride, taking emotion to a deadly level. Living here has brought me to the conclusion that as we need a lisence to drive, we should have one to procreate as well. I feel terrible for this boy who has lost his life. But in a society where people are turning their backs on reason and logic, turning to violence to solve their trivial problems, i can only worry about myself and the future of this country. It seems as though we are doomed. I was shocked to see police tape so close to my house. And immediately grateful it wasn't me. I wish there was something that could change the way things are, but apparently cycles are hard to break, and i'd rather enjoy my life than be miserable trying to help miserable, fearful people that don't want my help anyway.

my condolances to the family, my comments are not about you. They're about the shooter/people who live by and support this type of lifestyle.

Some white people kill their own families and commit suicide when life comes at them hard. We protect ours. Then your people are always commenting on black music because of the lyrics but what about some of the white music I have heard with lyrics talkig about suicide and killing parents and all that B.S.
You would probably kill yourself if you even had a hint of what blacks and hispanics go through---you racist prick.
Hypocrite.....your comments are just as, if not more racist than the origional poster. "We protect ours"(yeah "you" are doing a great job of protecting your young). And where do you get off stating "You would probably kill yourself if you even had a hint of what blacks and hispanics go through" without thinking that it is just as racist as me stating that you need to thank affirmative action for that PHD you claim you have.

the race card is an easy one to pull.

living off of other people's hard earned money via government assistance is not something to aspire to, yet when i find myself walking through the grocery store, and i get stuck behind some huge family with their cart overflowing and their WIC forms ready to go, i can't help but get frustrated. you don't protect your own. you raise them with a poor sense of reality, that being that you should use physical violence to solve problems. i've never witnessed an intelligent dispute between two people of lower economical status, only loud, juvenile insults and threats.

it doesn't matter what color a person is, there's this sense of a desperate need to appear powerful by any means when someone hits a certain social status. the lower the status, the more negative those needs become.

its not that whites are as bad as blacks, or that anyone is better than another. we're different and have different kinds of negativity. black people are all about pride, if it is injured they need to make up for it and make sure their friends know and acknowledge that fact. they use humiliation as a way to gain power. if by 'taking care of your own' you mean standing by while they kill each other off, give birth to a slowly growing rate of bastard children born to young unfit mothers, and filling up our cities jails, then you're doing an amazing job.

that's not to say that white people don't contribute to much of this countries problems because they do, but so does EVERYONE and that is the point. we all play our part. until we are ready to face ourselves there will never be any improvement and we will continue on in this state of fear of each other.

I think it is bad for our community the way black people handle thier problems they would rather pull out a gun and put a hole in your ass instead of throw down thats to easy they scared of getting thier ass wooped. They know they will get embarresed cause a Puerto Rican will fuck them up phiscally.

Donít you think your taking this a little too far? If you want to blog about useless nonsense please go some where else. These are real people, hurting and missing a loved one. Please just stop your comments and let us be.

Your a PHD? HA - you mention "every race has flaws" - so where did the chemical breakdown go wrong with the street trash? maybe as part of your Doctorate you should have determined the sequence of DNA that breeds the pollution that walks around the innner cities robbing and killing innocent citizens and breaking the law on a regular basis. Also you said "WE PROTECT OURS" of course you do because when little shaquil goes and kills a couple of people you never turn him over to the cops. Did you get your PHD from some online course? I bet you did.

There are so many gays between 14 and 30 years, walking and drivig cars in New Haven streets with illegal arms. My opinion is POLICE start working with them now, or our neirborhood will be a heil. No more violence, Stop, Stop.
Maybe you should learn proper english before constantly saying they're "gay". And maybe the PARENTS and community can do something about these little thugs with guns. Your neighborhoods are already a hell, and no one in them will work with the police. You people made your bed, it's time for you to fix it. Thanks Mayor Destefano for the illegal immigrant killing mill in New Haven. We're tired of your inner city whining, until you make up your minds to take responsibility I guess the funeral directors will be buying Mercedes alot.

PHD and chemist/chemical engineer making $600,000.00 a year. In New Haven? And you protect your family how? Not talking to the police? Shooting someone who dissed you? Isn't the most feared thing in New Haven a group of young black males? Taking a razor to that girl messing with your man? And my people commenting on your music? Me hearing verbal garbage and vulgarities blasting out of a pimped out car at 200Db and 600 watts shouldn't bother me? And what do blacks and hispanics go through? Did you get your education free, and through qoutas? Little special programs designed to give you a helping hand because your people aren't quite as smart as everyone else? Those orientals must really bug you. My comments are terrible aren't they? So are yours. You're no better or worse than any other bigot on these boards. You usually hope that the higher the level of education, the more enlightened you become. Sadly you missed that boat. Thank god you don't work for my research division.

Emilio Cruz wasn't even gay...check your facts before publishing ignorant comments. He was engaged to a beautiful girl with a baby on the way!
