Shocking! I'm guessing we are paying his high medical bills along w/ the investigation. His life isn't worth the cost.

Get rid of Section 8 in that area and crime will fall. I'm tired of paying for these shooter idiots. First welfare for 18 years, then the hospital for 18 days, and then jail for 30 years.

It's only a matter of time before a bunch of ultra-liberal freaks get on this thread and start whining about how it was the gun's fault, and how civilians shouldn't own guns.

this what happens when the city makes it easy to get section 8 and other benefits. tear down all section 8 housing and reduce benefits. that would make the city a desirable one to live in.

Welcome to post Jessie Rattley Denbigh. This highlights the stunning progress we have made in 50 years since Warwick merged with Newport News. Denbigh is outside the green zone of City Center. Once again, thanks Jessie & Joe!

My family plans to leave as soon as we can. I'd rather be house-poor in York than in a red zone like Denbigh. Luckily no one driving by on Warwick got hit. Thank you Ms. Rattley! May you rest in peace because we certainly can't!

East End Black thugs moving into Denbigh destroying what once was a great neighborhood. No more value to society than rats.

Looks like MLK Jr died for nothing.

Martin L King plagerized his thesis. He is nothing but a racist liar. People rewrite history on what they want to believe and not facts.

It must be because the black kids think with the right side of their brains. Rev. Wright said that in his NAACP speech last night in Detroit. He says blacks are different. Guess what? We white people know that Rev Wright. We have been saying the same thing for years. Blacks commit violent crime in the streets all the time. Look at last years stats in the Hampton Roads area. See how many shootings were committed by whites. Why is it even news when a black gets shot. That's not news that's how the black community lives.

No, you are not paying his medical bills you loser! You judgemental people here kill me. You don't know the victim so do not assume that he is a thug or a criminal or a felon, or what have you. He was a victim minding his own business when members of a gang approached him. You people need to look at yourself before you bash others. May GOD be with you all!

Well, maybe not reduce benefits...just simply use them the proper way. Benefits are supposed to be available for people that truly need the help (and only for a short period of time).

You need to get a life too! Sorry, you all commit "white-collar" crimes. Once again, you all kill me lol... I can only laugh at the ignorance. I can't wait until Obama gets in office! I want to really hear what you would have to say....GO OBAMA!

I look at myself and I see a responsible adult. Do you know this person shot? When one sees daily the black thug life in the news one will assume the boy was up to no good. Change your black community and maybe just maybe you will not be calling people losers. The only losers in this country are the blacks that are passive when it comes to the behavior of their own communities.

It used to upset me reading the racist comments that people post on here. Yet, now I just laugh because I realize these people will only post such comments because thier identity is hidden. They are the same ones that post faithfully and say the same thing every time. I guess it makes you feel a sense of worth by speaking behind closed doors. oh well... who cares, have fun the next time there is a story. Summer time is comming so you will surely find more, cause we all know you're not going anywhere!
