Some of you are very ignorant people. Blaming "Hip-Hop" and saying that it glorifies this so called "gangsta" live style only leads me to believe that you don't have the slightest clue as to what you are talking about. Simply put, your argument has no foundation. Blaming anything or anyone other than the sole person responsible for this unjust crime is completely absurd. Music doesn't make decisions for people. People make their own decisions. I am a hispanic man that was raised in the DC metro area and I have seen my share of crime and unnecessary violence. I chose to go the other route and live my life a different way and it wasn't very difficult. I am 23 now and I own a two story home, I have two cars of which the oldest is a 2011, and I am putting my self through a prestigious university. I never lived in a nice neighborhood and most certainly didn't have anyone around to give me any type of handouts. What these kids is a little bit of guidance, motivation, and discipline NOT people patronizing them.

IF ANY ONE that knew this kid reads this...make a CONSCIOUS decision to make a difference in your life...it can be done it just take a tiny little bit of effort.

Most crimes in San Leandro now a days are by BLACKS !
Can't trust them. When I see them in the streets. I watch em closely. Low Life Thieves. The mayor in San Leandro should be more serious and up the jail time on crimes in San Leandro.
That is if he wants to be re-elected in the future.
Take care of the crime issues in San Leandro Mayor!

I feel sorry for any decent tax payer in the area, the Oakland police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty, and all the innocent people shot for simply being in the area, like Mario. May they all rest in peace and state statues be past that could quell the violence.

No since the show folks been trying to get at me for all the wrong reasons. Sorry. If you come to medocino jr college I spend 5th and 6th in the library. M-wen. I'll talk to you but I don't know you and can't see what I can do for you? I'm a regular guy. Just trying to make a change. Who gives a fuck what I do? I got a girl. I got a kid. I don't need to have someone else on my soul. You saw the show. It was not good. I don't want to die. I want my familia and my homies proud of me. I got out. I did something. I'm not hating on you but you don't know me. Find a kid in your own life and try helping closer to home. That show was a curse. I hope you can feel me.
