So, why is Elijah Stinson, 17, OF LA PUENTE (emphasis added), attending South Pasadena High School??? Why is a South Pasadena NON-resident (emphasis added) attending our public schools, which we not only help fund via our exorbitant home prices and property taxes, but through a myriad of fund raisers, personal contributions, and in-kind contributions?

Is this the kind of kid we want in our school system, to be around our kids, and, I'm only guessing here, compromise the quality of our public schools; if not scholastically, then morally?

Does anybody else see a problem with this picture, or is it just me?

A VERY concerned and long-time So. Pas. resident

How about a gang tax $5000 dollars on property for each gang member. They are in enterprising business they can afford to pay taxes.

Yes I am Eljah's Cousin I am 23 of afe my cousin isn't the type of person to do harm to someone, let alone kill some one . It is called self defense both sides needs to be heard and all parties investigated my cousin needs to be set free. everyone looks at him as another black kid gone wrong , well all of you are wrong , Elijah has a good heart is pertecting yourself a crime being jumped by a bunch of teenagers my family is behind Elijah a hundred percent and the lord will have his final say love you Elijah everything will be okay .

YOU KNOW ELIJAH AND ARE SERIOUSLY DEFENDING HIM? i sat in class with him every day. i saw him carry that bat around at school. i heard him make jokes about attacking people with it. i saw all the fights he got in over who was tougher. i have never seen a person more concerned with his image. they kicked his ass for going after one of their girlfriends. he had that coming. you dont retaliate with a bat. the only reason he did it was because he wanted to say that he had done that in his life. obviously he wasnt thinking. OBVIOUSLY he didnt think he was going to kill someone. HES A DUMBASS. i respect you, his cousin, for defending your family, but i see the real, pretentious side of him, not the "im going to milk all i can out of my family" side of him. anyone who blames jeff for this has a special spot in hell.

If you can't fight one on one with someone this is what you get none of this wouldn't have happened if that punk didn't decide to mess with my cousin I dont care what the reason was now look what happened and I dont blame my cousin for doing what he did . straight up you mess with the wrong person your ass is going to get served point blank !!!!

Uh, yeah, he might be out on bail, but hes not had the charges dismissed. Even the most hardcore murderers get bail, moron. Lets see if he walks free after his trial, I`ll bet you he doesn't!
