Don't call a 19 year old a " teen ", it made it sound like a 14 or 15 year old was shot. yeah, 19 is still a teenager, but you know what I mean.

(sigh) You couldn't find anything else to complain about other than he was called a teen? Go away.

How does someone accidently get shot in the head? Who was the shooter? How did the gun discharge? Seems that some information was left out.

I feel horrible for the TEEN's family no one should have to bury their own child. Peace to all!

If the Father dosn't have all the answers about what happened why does he have to wait for them at a news conference from police. Thats what it sounds like from the story I read from AP. Pretty stupid wording to me. I feel sorry for this father to get this type of news.

There's no mention of anyone's race in the article. I'm bitterly disappointed with the Pioneer Press.

Maybe he was just getting in some target practice before he went off to Iraq and killed innocent civilians there? Like John Kerry said, smart people go to college and the dumb, redneck, thug types join the military.

Speaking as a Wisconsite, let me take a wild guess. Was alcohol involved?

Just Wondering --

Do you know anything about journalism? Race is not supposed to be mentioned unless it is pertinent to the story.

If you think it is pertinent to this one just because someone was shot, that's very telling of your worldview.

Have you been there? Have you seen it? or are you just jumping on the band wagon to hate the soldiers and believe everything the media tells you as true (moron). People who love their country and don't have the cash to go to college serve the country to gain money for college. Believe it or not there are still a lot of people who feel America is a great country (No thanks to what all the bleeding hearts are trying to do to it) I will stand behind the troops over a liberal extremist anyday.

I'm trying to imagine any party I've been to or invited to where this might ever happen...nope can't do it. I must live a sheltered life. Very sad that someone who attended to send the guy off got killed. The very fact he was at the party points to him being a friend or relative.

When an article is about a violent crime, then you better believe the comments section will be flooded with people like "Just Wondering" looking for a reason (race) to justify their racist views by posting comments like, "You see! Those [insert ethnic group or slur here] are at it again! Told you so!"

This should pacify all those looking to identify the race of both involved. Both were white.

Thousands and thousands of Americans have died for the right for you to get on your computer and show what a complete and total idiot you are. God Bless Free Speech. You can separate the intelligent from the ignorant just by a few words.
