How is this the police dept. fault when he was breaking and entering and the home owners shot him. If he was still in school. Why wasn't he home? Mom, why wasn't there a curfew in place? Kids are not as innocent as their moms think. Cause and Effect, its taught since Kindergarten, obviously he didn't learn it.

Someone HAS been brought to justice. Your classmate Ryan. He got what he asked for. He wasnt murdered. He got his reward for wrongdoing.

I really don't appreciate people trying to label my son drug dealer nor a home invader. My son was shoot in the back. how do you justify that, also how can you break a lock on a door that was falling down. If you fire a warning shoot it would not hit someone in the back. There is a big cover up going on. Anyone who knew Ryan would know this young man would not hurt a flea. Those people knew him they seen him everyday, if you listen to the news and read the papers you will see that everyone has a different point of view. I was told that once the investergation was over they would be notifing me but it seen that the police is talking to everyone but me. Please EXPLAIN THAT!!!!!!!!!!
I dont blame you for being extemely upset and angry! I would have someone investigate and investigate until I got some answers if it took me till the day i die! Thats a bunch of BS. Even if Ryan went up to the car just to fake them out and make some money (not really having any drugs to begin with) and then pissed off the undercovers off and they went after him. I donno theres much more to this that is a cover up for them police and teenshooter!

Police do this stuff all the time. So the kid was trying to make some money. I bet he didnt even have drugs on him. They didnt find any drugs or a weapon. I believe this was a coverup and Ryan made them police mad when he ran. He was scared and so would you be. What better place to run than a neighbors house until they left. Oh and the shooter "slipped", "fired a warning shot","was scared Ryan was gonna hurt he and his family"," didnt mean to hit him", shot him in the back by accident???....Doesnt pan out people. Inside job for sure! Poor Ryan takes a shot for some coverups! RIP

If Ryan was not selling crack then I profoundly apologize for my earlier comments.

Let me rephrase my earlier comment:

I have no regard for the welfare of crack dealers. They are the lowest of the low in my opinion and they prey on people with addicitve personalities. They should be discarded like the trash that they are.

If Ryan was not a crack dealer then the above statement does not apply to him.

Before you put down the negro read this because it explains the way they act. This is a scientific research.
Let me introduce myself: My name is Dr. Whitey and I study human behavior and developement. For the last 15 years I have traveled Africa and studied the African negro and the way he acts.
My main study was to compare the intelligence of the negro to the gorilla since they are closely related. What I found out is interesting. It is well known that the negro brain is about half the size of the white man's brain. What was shocking is I found out the gorilla's brain is only slightly smaller than the negro brain.
In most intelligence test the gorilla did just as well as the negro. On behavior I was shocked by the difference between these two species. The female gorilla will wait until adulthood before she produces babies. The negro female is totally opposite. 89 % of female negros (and this includes Africa and America) become pregnant by the age of 15.
Another study was done on the male gorilla. The male gorilla will stay and provide for his offspring until they become adults. 95 % of male negros (African and American) will not have anything to do with their children once they are born.
People wanted to challenge me on the subject of the negro being a close relative of the gorilla. I took the example of Patrick Ewing (former Knick player). I had Ewing stand next to a gorilla and I asked numerous people who was the negro and who was the gorilla. Most couldn't tell. The only way they could tell the difference was when I asked Ewing to speak. Even after speaking it was still hard to come to a decision. One other thing about Ewing. There was talk of doing a remake of the Planet of the Apes and he was going to have the lead role. The producers figured they would save some money since Ewing wouldn't have needed a costume.
There is a difference between the American negro and the African negro. The American negro is usually smarter than his African counterpart. This is due to the American negro being around the white man for so long. Some of the white man's intelligence has rubbed off on the negro.
In closing I would like to say I hope I didn't offend anyone with this scientific proof. We all should look to get along and quit fighting with each other. It works for me because I have a great deal of respect for the negro.
Yours Truly,
Dr. Iam Whitey
FACT: Africans have the most complex DNA of all humans and are regarded as the earliest inhabitants of the earth so it is pretty obvious who has half a brain here.

Don't you have some kids to molest somewhere white boy?

When I first heard the news I had to do a double take...about 10 years ago we lived in the same area of Altamonte Springs....my son was probably 9 or so....we had a little dog an one day he ran down the street into this same yard.. now I dont know if the same people still live there but the home owner at that time pulled a gun on my lil boy...we called the police....when the polic arrived the home owner said he pulled the gun cause he was scared of the dog...that weighed 8 pounds by the way...I wonder if it was the same guy???? if so he was waiting to kill someone how sad!

hah.. i feel bad for him.. but he was in no way innocent.. my friend was walking down a hall one day and he slapped him in the face.. i said who slapped you.. he said the kid with the green eyes, and tattoo on his neck... and even after that... someone bumps into him all you hear from him is "that n***a better watch out"... he's dead so maybe we should give him a break.. but maybe it would all be better if he had a father, and learned to stop blaming the wrong people... and who said he wouldnt hurt a fly? maybe he wouldnt but he sure talks like he would... i dont wanna be an ass.. and i respect human life.. but this is what happens to kids who are bad (atleast thats what i think he was)
No one is innocent... are you saying that people that make simple mistakes in life need to be shot to their death? i feel bad for your friend because i HATE when people are victims to bullying in school but your friend shuld have went to and adult and had Ryan suspended... i bet your friend didnt do that... how are you going to care more than your friend?

I've known Ryan for about 2 yrs. now and I have class with him and his little sister together. He was an extremely sweet boy and always had a smile on his face. Im sick of the Lyman adminstration and teachers disrespecting him. And if you do your research, the cops THOUGHT he was selling drugs, but it was never officaly reported that he had any drugs on him. And I know if he did, they would def. mention it, cuz at this point the media is going to do anything to make him look bad. He would have dont anything for his family and friends.
R.I.P. Baby boy. God bless his mom.

Your son was out at 3am selling crack.
I have lost several friends over the years to crack. These individuals had glorious futures ahead of them only to be destroyed with assistance from dealers like your son.
Anyone who sells crack should be burned at the stake. Your son got off easy.
You have no kind of heart it is plenty of people still mourning of ryans death so how dare you come a post a ignorant, bullshit commit thats not even true I hope you burn in hell with gasolline drawers on.You stupid bitch that was somebody's son brother cousin a family member that hurt o you must just don't know you must be adopted or your mama must dont give a shit about you

I am a former teacher of Ryan's. He was a good young man who often found himself getting into trouble. Rather than everyone trying to assess blame, we should be celebrating his life and learning from his mistakes. Unfortunately, nothing can bring Ryan back. To those family members and friends who lost Ryan, my deepest sympathies and prayers go out to you.

How does it being SAT. night make a difference? He was still a Highschool student, not a man. He should have been home and not "pretending" to sell drugs.(Since thats what you choose to believe.) I'm sorry he's dead, I'm sorry for the position he has put his mother in.

I hope that the rest of his friend learn something from this and will think about there choices and the consequences that can result from one wrong/bad choice.
