Because the Rosevile mall story is about gangs. Since the media and the law want to protect gangs, we need to get rid of them ourselves.
This story is about stupidity not gang activity.

They actually let people post comments on Roseville Mall story yesterday, but removed them. People got really racist. Kind of like how you are sounding. I was there and the kids arrested were not from any gang. They were suburban kids. Thugs and gangs don't go to Malls to start fights. And they don't bring knives. They carry guns.
Don't write comments if you don't know what you're talking about.
How sad

The comments for the Rosedale Mall story were working shortly after the story was posted. They later removed it from Topix. There were some definite racial overtones to some of the posts, if you get what I mean.

hey!

how 'bout some local investigative news.....or maybe more front page garbage about the goat in SSP?

Or maybe more stories about things happening elsewhere, while your locality goes straight down the pipes?

Doesn't anybody at the Poopineer Press do any real work?

This is a very tragic accident. "Tragic" of course I say losely. Maybe senseless is a better choice of words. I feel for the families but maybe something can be learned by other kids from this incident. Let me also add, Im a religious man, hopefully they were on the right side of God. With that said, Ive never understood why people say prayers on here. God don't read Topix.

It seems to me that it was an accident for the train driver but the teenagers chose to go where they did not belong. It is a railroad bridge with a "no tresspassing" sign. Every action has a consequence. They chose poorly. I am sorry for the engineer and for the families.

"Private property, no trespassing." means violators can and will die! What a tragedy.
condolances to the families and everyone that will have to live with the memory of seeing what happened.

Kids do stupid stuff and some die as a result.

No matter this is real sad.

As difficult as it is TRY to keep an eye on kids and what they are doing. They will not admit or want help but they are truly in need.

exactly and in one article someone they didnt' even mention in the article named Colcomb stated that this was a homicide investigation x 3..i guess someone is going to try to sue the train service...amazing and i wonder who Colcomb is? i looked for prior mention of this quote this reporter made reference to and nothing...these online reporters are not very intelligent .. any of us bloggers could do a better job.

No lawsuits. It was a bad scene. The reason the third girls name was released so late is because her mother wouldn't accept it was her until the dental records came back. Lawsuits are the least of anybodys worries right now.

then why did this person Colcomb state that it was a homicide x 3 .. usually the only reason is that sooner or later there will be a civil suit...it's very sad

Cause idiots come out to play at every tragedy. I saw that written to but I think it may actually be a misquote. Investigations are being done by Melbourne PD and East Coast Rail. Cause of death will be ruled accidental.

I am a mother and I cannot even try to imagine what these mothers have endured these past days. Does anyone know how the young man who was with them is doing? I can't imagine what he must be feeling right now either. My prayers with all invovled.

That's pretty heartless to say the teenagers chose to go there. They did not choose to go there to die. Remember these are teenagers, were you ever one? You have never gone where there is a no trespassing sign? The engineer will have to live with this.
