It is sad how young people are just dying in America for no reason. It makes it even sadier that you knew the person or went to school with them. I send out my prayers for the family of the young men that were involved in this terrible inncident.

Here we go again!! More black crime!!
How many violent crimes has it been this week? Anybody been counting?
There has been some white crime in Indy this week too,...but I don't recall any white killings , or drive--bys, or armed robberies, or carjackings by them being reported by the news!!( of course this could just be a white racist plan to embarass the black race, according to how some people think!)
As time progresses, you will no doubt, read about some serious white crime sometime in this paper,but it won't be NEARLY the rate that the black crime rate is!!
Again, I say this. The blacks need to get their crime rate under control instead of sitting back and lamenting about it!!
Yeah, I'm sure you're really "fed up with crime" you read about here as you safely sit in your small town three hours away from Indianapolis. Try living in these neighborhood before you start trying to tell other people how to fix their problems. Maybe you should be more concerned about getting a handle on the meth epidemic in your area, which is fueled mainly by -*gasp*- white people!

And what was your 17 year old son doing OUT at 2am Sunday morning? Maybe if you made him get his ass home at a decent hour, he'd still be around.

To set the record straight...

"Concerned Black Woman" seems to be a White or Hispanic man from Plano, Texas, who changes his identity (and perhaps his gender??) at the drop of a dime.

"Fed up with crime" needs to FIND an identity for himself--perhaps he could borrow one from the aforementioned gentleman out of Plano, Texas??...I'm sure Vincennes is a real bastion of Godliness itself (rolls eyes).....For real, though, Fed-up-with-crime: I know Vincennes sort of resembles the Mississippi Delta, but try not to wet your pants in fear every time you see a Black man.

"Martinsville White Trash" is at least honest about who he claims to be, although I hope he comes to a place in his life when he realizes he's better than that--better than both the name, and the idiotic comments.

"Joe"....thanks for keeping it real. It's good to know there's somebody half-way decent and intelligent on this forum.

I guess I must be missing something. I didn't read anywhere in the story that the race of any of the participants was mentioned. How is every one so sure that the victims and the perpetrators were black?

I agree with you, LeNadia...it is perfectly legal to peacefully be out at 2 AM, because it's a free country.

And to that racist White-supremacist kid in Vincennes...stay on your country farm and find something productive to do with your life that doesn't involve wearing pointy white sheets. And don't ever step foot in Indy with that racist crap, cause I'll be the FIRST to mess you up!(Oh, and I'm White, too.)

The fact that the boy was out at 2a.m. should not be a factor. The lady lost her son and the other young man lost a best friend. The factor is ignorant people settling differences the wrong way, and harming innocent bystanders as a result. My dearest condolences go out to the family, I pray the police find the person who took your son away. I lost a brother last year to a violent crime, stay on the police about it , they tend to stray away from the unsolved crimes after awhile, do it for your son and yourself, May gold bless you through your loss and always.

We have just recorded our 16 th. murder for the year here in vancouver and we are all appalled since its one highter than last year at this time.Most murders here ar due to drugs.We do not try to blame one ethnic group over another but try to educate the people responsible for this sort of crime or any crime that this is not acceptible behaver.At the end of the day education and not more guns on the street would be the correct approach.

Melina Kennedy blames Carl Brizzi for crime being up in Indy. Well, Melina, when crime was up in New York City a few years ago, New Yorkers fired Mayor Dinkens and elected a mayor who did something about crime. Perhaps the same solution would work in Indy.

Oh my, my, my. "Quite a few" of those 60-65% of African-American-perpetrated crimes are directed toward whites? That's a lovely statistical term there, "quite a few." Nice and specific. And you don't see much going the other way? Since when are you the all-seeing eye of God?

But you're right, meth users don't commit much violent crime...well, not directly. They just expose their kids to their habit and all of its inherent risks. But it's okay, we'll just focus on violent crime as "the bad kind of crime" to make us feel better about our own race, won't we, "fed up"?

Remember, non-violent crime still has victims.

Great, another ignorant racist whose only knowledge of civil rights is, "Hey, it's a free country, ain't it?" Clever, really.

It is a free country. You can say whatever you want, but it's the newspaper's discretion as to whether you can use their website to do so.

This is simply tragic. Another youth lost for no reason. Now, for those of you who say that being out at 2:00AM has nothing to do with it, well, there is a 1:00 curfew for kids 17 years of age. If this curfew was enforced, this child would still be alive. This is why I tell me son that there is not much good happening after midnight.

A sad situation. But look for the teen's mother to blame someone beside herself. It's a deep-rooted problem; she had no control over him for a long time.

I had David ("Coop") in class two years ago. I don't have words right now for how much it hurts to see that he has been killed. Coop often made me want to pull my hair out, but he more often put a smile on my face. He was a smart and lively kid. My heart goes out to his family.

After I read your comment, I didn't want to read further, I don't understand why do parents let teen's be out so late, I don't understand it. But I do have to say, this crime could of happend during the day also, but it didn't it happend at a time that this child should of had his tail at home in bed....
