Obviously anyone who fatally shoots there father has problems, It sounds like Ward is a troubled young man.

The whole thing is sickening; His dad bought him out here to get away from the city. His dad puts him in a nice community, and a terrific school. But life as a 17 year old is so tough, and he just can’t stand his dad telling what to do, or how to live his life.

The boy should have stuck it out in his brand new house, and when he turned 18 should of left, and saw how tough the world really is.

Such a sad story………â

Damien is a very good man, he was my son's best friend and a son to me always calling me mom, just so caring and loving. I love him, Damien would spend many hours at my home, we would talk about a lot of issues, he was troubled and he knew he was and was only trying help his situation.. before he went to Rockford he did spend a few night at my house his purpose was only to finish school to better himself and his life. Damien had a rough life. I do know a very good side to Damien deep down he is a good kid. Please Free Damien.... I love Damien this all seems like a nightmare.... We miss him..

Damien was an overall good guy. Even tho he had some drug problems.. he was trying to get help.. i think that Damien deserves what he got, but yet i still miss him soo much. We went to high school together.. and i just thought he was the sweetest thing, even tho i new he had drug problems.... even tho what he did was completly wrong. i love him.. and i miss him soo much!

I grew up knowing Damien and his whole family and I still think he has a good heart in him. I mean, maybe if he wasnt on a few drugs, he wouldnt have done what he did. And the drug use couldve been stopped, but it was chosen not to be recognized as serious as it coulve been. Ive known him for my whole life and I think he deserves what he gets but hes still the same person deep down inside. So dont even begin to judge him because of what he did. While on drugs, you arent the same person you once were.

Again, to add...Damien babysat my younger brother for quite a while before the incident, and nothing ever happened to him. What if he did what he did for a certain reason? He didnt have to go to the extremity, but if you take the situation into consideration, and think about the other times, you would probably think a lot differently.

I met Damien in 4th Grade at a school lock in.We remained friends throughout high school but we didnt really chill sophmore year at CP.Then Junior year came around and thats when shit got crazy.There was a lot of coke goin around and damien got addicted.we didnt chill much then cuz i wasnt into coke.We did alot of Xanax together and shit like shrooms but we never really paid much thought about what we were doing to ourselves and people around us.He pushed it way past his limits.So really all i have to say is this,Addiction is a disease,progressive and ultimately fatal.

P.S. Everybody who bashes him on the internetr has no life.Go bury yourselves.:)
