We should publicly thank the shooters that rid us of these criminals.

Each violent felon taking a dirt nap is one less to harm others.

Much love to the families! I know the horrors of loosing a son! May GOD BLESS! This is just more proof we need to stop this type of behavior! We need to stop making jails so nice!??? Give them a bad experience.. better yet make them work for the bed, electric, food and everything else like the rest of us do! You give these people these things for free they will take it! Most criminals want "the free ride", if i had a $ for every looser who said 3 hots and a cot i would never have to wait another table again! Get real America if you want to see a real change, cable tv in jail cells on taxpayers money isn't going to do it!! Prisoners should be so tired at the end of the day from WORKING they go straight to bed and hope they never come back!

I agree, but it seems society is trying to legitimize jail and prison life. Look at the TV shows. Shows that go inside prisons and attempt to explain these animals behavior. And giving them a national platform to talk of the merits of the gang culture. Who cares? But the media seems to be going in this direction. To young kids on the edge or with no adult fit to put them in the right direction, all this violence seems cool. Its no different than whites that idolize the Mafia and admire them. Or look up to Motorcycle gang types. Bottom line is we need to stop glamorizing criminals, no matter who they are. And yeah ive heard the "3 hot and cot" garbage. And donít forget the ones who try to be all tough and announce to the world" Iíve been in the Penitentiary". My answer to that is" Buddy, you only get points for staying out of the joint"

I've reported crime when I've seen it. My comment applies to the knee-jerk comments made by more than one poster on these forums. Many comments are pure racism by including all of a group into the same barrel based on the actions of some. You (plural usage) have a history of racist views in this forum without bringing much constructive to the table.

I'll stand by that statement.

Obviously, their families didn't care about their lifestyles ... so why should any of us care that they're dead?

The usual suspects . . . luckily no innocent people were gunned down. Gangs have now taken over NN. Glad I got my family out of thug-central. All you decent people - leave before it's too late.

Heres a clue. These are characters in one of those HBO miniseries about drug dealing! Also Hitler is dead and Elvis will not return in the year 3000.

You got me. I've only seen The Wire a couple of times and didn't catch the reference.

But my point about reporting and testifying stands. That's a big part of the problem. Too many are in fear of repercussions.(and it is hard to not see their point). I'm as disgusted as anyone on here with the crime in our vicinity. Violent crime has been around since the beginning of time but the current cycle is literally too close to home.
