Can we deport her? She better have health care! I certainly don't want to pay for this.
1) Deport her? She was an american citizen.
2) Yes she did have health care.
3) You won't have to pay for her because she died that night.

Previously posted as close friend. This seems more appropriate. This will be my last post, because, as my dad always says, you can't argue with idiots.

I came on here night after night defending Alexa. Even though her and I were not biologically related, we considered ourselves sisters. She lived at my house for two years. My parents thought of her as their daughter. We told each other everything, including things we never shared with anyone. I miss her more and more each day. Seeing people write obnoxious and rude comments about a person they have never met, a person I care deeply about, is infuriating. This is not the place to try to "get a rise out of people". A 21 year old girl is dead and people are being heartless. There is no need for it. Someone asked why I care so much, but why shouldn't I? Wouldn't you? How would you feel is this was your sister? Your daughter? Your mother? Your wife, girlfriend, friend, etc? You would try to defend that person against ignorant people too! 90% of the people that have posted do not know this girl. 100% of those people should not have posted unless it was to say something NICE.
In a week or two, most of you will forget all about this girl, because you did not know her. Her name was Alexa. She loved diet coke. She had a boxer named Nessie. She was hilarious, loving, and extremely kind. She has a mom, dad, and brother who are mourning of the loss of their daughter. And hundreds of friends who are devestated over losing someone so special. None of those people had any idea this was coming.
So out of the respect for her family and friends, go post rude things somewhere else. No. Instead of being mean, go say a prayer for her and everyone that loved her.
And think about if this was someone you loved.. How would you feel then?

Have a nice life.

Listen, smartass, she was armed. It looks like she shot herself. That's very sad she chose to do something like that in a crowded area with families around.
, ok u piece of **** I don't no u, and I don't no if I no this family, but I was research and came across this page and I'm reading " WOW" let me tell u something u ignorant piece of ****, on this wacky white people, u must b black cuz ur showing ur ignorance, u don't no y she did what she did, and making the comments that u state us wacky white folks locking up our guns, when our children can get em off the streets like people like u. This family has suffered enough the last thing they need is people like u making statements like u did, how would u feel if it was one of ur family memebrs? I hope if something happens to u, this is the type of disrespect that u receive..... And the statement u made bout protecting hersel if she had a gun, was uncalled for, some people r sick and when u add someone whose sick and people like u, no wunder y any 1 would take their lives...... U owe this family an appoligy for ur lack respect of a mourning family...
