Well, there is a big difference b/t ditching school and shooting at people in grocery store parking lots, and then running from armed undercovers.

Yes its about Danny Raul Castillo. If you guys know the "neighborhood" members who tagged up the parking lot and the furniture store's truck in his honor, pass the word along that it didnt do anything but disgrace him.

Everyone should be ashamed of themselves.

people say he was trying to rob a bank but he was only watching the bicycles outside of Stater Brothers, something "went down" and he looked "suspicious" so they shot him. Who knows if it's true that he had a gun.

You couldn't be more wrong. He shot at the cops when running from a brown minivan after some sort of previous altercation in the parking lot. The cops shot him, kicked his gun away, handcuffed him, then checked vitals and confirmed he was dead. Ive spoken to many witnesses that say they saw him tuck the gun in his pants after he shot at the cops.

You people never do anything wrong, do you? This lie that they left him to die after being handcuffed is pure BS.

They found his with a gun. It had just recently been fired. No one said he was shooting at the cops, but he was shooting at someone in that parking lot.

You, and other gang bangers, can learn from his death, that is what you can do. If you want his death to mean nothing, then keep on with that old tired phrase of he is dead now, leave him alone.

Examples like this should be shown to every kid in school, "you join a gang, you commit violent crimes, the odds of you dieing violently increase exponentially and here is another example."

El Chorizo is 100% correct about what happened.
BTW, none of the family members or friends of the kid want to believe the kid was at any fault.
from what i heard the cops where dress like regular person they came out of a car shotting at him maybe he tought the rival gangmenbers had more people so he shoot back in norwalk cops pull you over or put you in the cop car or talke you because your walk in the moring and its cold and your wearing a hoodie then they ask question its he same they shoot you down then they ask questions and his mom was singal and all i know she was a good mother try to keep him out of trouble try to show him the right path but thats life would have been better if they arrested him and gave him a trail instead of shooting him down there undercover cops i think they would have know to shoot the gun of his hand or shoot his hand but just aim for his head thats sad

The police are trained professionals, that's why this little gun toting looser is dead. It doesn't matter if he was only 15. You pack a gun looken for trouble and you might just find it. He's one less piece of trash society will have to worry about on our streets.
Very upset

the cops could have shoot him in the hand or the leg but no they think they have the right to kill whom ever just because of a badge! he was only 15 years old. Im not saying what he was doing as right but Like everyone says two wrongs don't make it right!

I hate gang bangers. My friend was shot and killed 15 years ago in a crossfire exchange between rival gangsters. I hate your kind and everything you stand for which is being a coward who jumps innocent people 20 to 1, And shoots people without any remorse. I hope that you're suffering. It doesn't feel good does it? Now you know how so many other people feel that have been innocently victimized by low life scum like this kid and his lame pathetic friends and supporters. I only wish bad times for your kind of people.
I hope you cry and weep. Now you know how it feels. except that he was not innocent. My friend who was killed buying a soda was innocent. Your friend got what he deserved.
I had a friend who died 21 years ago in a similar situation. He was traveling from Oklahoma to California and stopped to rest in Albuquerque New Mexico and ended up dying in a hail of gunfire from rival gangbangers at the motel he was staying at. Not being familiar with the area, he had no idea of the danger he was in. I sympathize with YOU. Sorry for your loss...
