Must be more to the story, or possibly an abuse cover-up. Kids hit their heads all of the time. Go with GOD kid. It's better up there anyway.

"area teen" means white and from the burbs.

A 13 boy is dead, what difference does his race make?

It's a shame that your such an A**hole. What does color or burbs have to do with this kids death.
A little FYI, Not too many "White Boy's in the Burbs" are named Devon.

City Res-It doesn't list the race of the teen, who lived in a home for emotionally abused children. Even if he is white, he has probably faced more hardship than you and I ever will.

I agree with you, the hate in some people is so strong they can't tell right from wrong.

Sure kids hit their heads all the time. But lots of people also die from hitting their heads, or from being hit in the head, intentionally or unintentionally. It can happen to anyone, brain swells, death occurs. It's sad.

FYI, here is a white person named Devon http://www.facebook.com/people/Devon-Ann-Harr...

Your a racist to think everyone follows rules on black names and white names when naming their child.

I am not so sure Naomi... judging by most of his posts it would seem CityRes is emotionally disturbed himself.

What kind of an idiot thinks this is a coverup? Anyone can "lightly" bump their head and wind up dead...what an a-hole for thinking so harshly and negatively!! Maybe this is an indication of the kind of person YOU are, but hopefully people who read your post are more intelligent- MORON!

It really doesn't take much! Accidents happen all the time and most of the time people just get right back up - maybe a little sorer and hopefully wiser. Sometimes though - freakish things can happen and what is usually just a simple fall turns fatal.

One of my cousins lost his daughter when she was four. She literally tripped, fell, and broke her neck. She was just running around the yard like any 4 year old. Parents were right there and there was nothing they could have done. It just happens sometimes. Terrible tragedy when it does.

Every single death in America should have some type of formal investigation. Do not sit there and be so naive as to think that "cover-ups are impossible. They happen within every 24 hour period of every year. Not saying that someone did anything, it just needs to be investigated to be sure that noone gets away with anything they shouldn't. If it was my child, I would want to be sure that it was an accident and noone was trying to claim something that was the opposite of the truth. You can call me those things, but I would be more intrigued if you came up with words to call me that I had to do research on. Now that my friend; would make my day.
Oh! and before I forget, Happy Thanksgiving and practice looking for a multitude of new words to use for people. Moron is a little outdated.

i used to work at this Group home. its a great place for kids to be when they cant be controlled. the staff are responsible and do there best to help the kids. a coverup wouldnt happen, ive seen the company hold people responsible for terrible things in the past. they arent shy about taking ownership. as for the race of the kid or where he is from??? why dont you picture him as whatever place you want him to be from, maybe itll make you feel better. it wont help his family though. crazy things can happen and the staff cant monitor every step they take. but hopefully a lesson will be learned. ive learned one... there trully are ignorant people who post to this site. and they should let people mourn without bieng a bigot.)thats a shout out to cityRes)
