I knew this young man personally and he was attempting to break up a fight and the gunman turned on him because he intervened.

One would think that there would be posts expressing sympathy for the family, for the lost of another HUMAN BEING and a call for justice but these posts are nothing but heartless, ignorant comments from individuals who probably work around minorities everyday and pretend that they are not racist. It's a shame we still live in a world where one race of PEOPLE think that are above and better than others. I'll pray for you all because the sad truth is if you believe there is a GOD, GOD will not be dividing people by their race but by the sins the commit.

the media has tunnel vision, you will have a crime committed by a black person and a crime committed by a white person in the same town but even though they have both stories ,the community know of both stories ,but the media carries only the one about the black person. this happens every day so it gives the impression that only black people are committing crimes.this is diversion from the real issues.

Hey Kay....
Facts are facts....
Nobody is making up anything here....
This horrible, unfortunate turn of events took place all because black people find it necessary to carry guns to KFC.
I'm sorry, but I walk to my KFC in my neighborhood all the time and I can't remember once when I had to even think that someone had a gun on them and worry about being shot while picking up my 2-piece.
Tell me something....
Have you EVER seen a black person move out of a WHITE neighborhood because it was getting too DANGEROUS to live there???
It is YOU who are IGNORANT if you cannot put two and two together and figure out who the savages of our land are.
Forest Hills.... I have to laugh.
Enjoy your predominantly WHITE, Jewish neighborhood.... When was the last time you took the subway to the Bronx, Kay???
EXACTLY !!!
So save your BooHoo's for tomorrow's tragic black guy killed a white guy news headline.
The liberals and minorities don't want to hear facts.Don't confuse them with the truth and facts.12% of the population involved in 46.8% of the violent crimes.

Call me what you want.... Show me a newspaper without a story telling of how some black guy shot someone or something up, and I'll be first to call myself a racist.
That's all they're good for.... Shootin' hoops.... shootin' guns.... shootin' the breeze.....
And you want to talk about their aiming???
They aim to be first in line at the welfare office every month.
A word to my fellow HARD WORKING citizens....
WORK HARDER... Millions of people on Welfare are depending on you !!!
Slavery the biggest mistake ,why?Paying for cheap labor 140 years later.Should have shipped them all back after the civil war.

How about some kudos to the cops who are consistantly trashed by commenters on this page for doing what they do best... Chasing down some armed dirtbag without thinking twice. We are the only people I know of who actually go toward gunshots, besides our brothers overseas. Good job coppers!!

Where did you read anywhere that this boy killed was "African American"? I personally know his family and have been searching online for stories about it. Not ONE article that I found,(and there are quite a few) specified what his race was. Do you just assume that just because it happened to be in front of a chicken store that he was black? Why do you bigots have to try to make everything racial? Like someone else said, he was trying to break up a fight, clearly being guilty only of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

And then, someone bashes the poor guy because he was a MTA conductor. The guy was making an honest living, you all would have had a field day if they would have said he was unemployed, but he wasn't, he was bringing a paycheck home to his family every week.

He was one of the nicest, most honest people I have ever met, and his family does not deserve to come across a message board like this and read all this crap that you are saying about him. You do not know what kind of person he was and you have no right at all judging him like this because of the color of his skin. He was a human being and now he is dead, and will be missed by his family and friends that loved him. Not that it should or does matter, but I am white, so don't start bashing me by saying its because I'm black that Iím sticking up for him.... Iím white and I for one, do not look at the color of someoneís skin when I chose my friends, I look at what kind of person they are.

I knew Mr. Dandridge (Justin) and he was a quiet man, dedicated and doting on his only daughter, Justice. He recently graduated from college and his life was on a positive path. Where is more information about this side of the story. This is a tragedy that happened on our streets. Initially, stories were printed that listed Mr. Dandridge as the shooter and antagonist. You guys have got to do better journalism. Which is more important - getting a story or getting the RIGHT story? God bless you and your family, Justin.

Yes, there was lots of trans fat in that chicken. We try to kill ourselves any way we can. We have such beautiful, stress free lives that it's boring and we need to do things like kill ourselves and each other early. Between the "perceived" racism we claim to suffer from, as this is only a joke and we really are loved and respected by all, and the beautiful schools we attend that educate us so well, we just have nothing else to do. There are also the beautiful people like you who love everyone and would never address a whole group of people based on the actions of few. We love your kind and the responsible journalists who write the stories and include all of the facts of the story BEFORE they print it. We thank you.

Hi, it's me mayor mike, I'm writing this at my summer retreat in Bermuda far far away from all the rabble in Harlem. I just got done paying all my daughter's bills for her horse, I wish she had chosen a cheaper hobby! Anyway, I'm announcing a new plan where we will pay black people $25 every time they don't shoot someone. Now in addition for giving them money for going to the doctor, and for going to school I will add this. Hey forget the conducter that was shot, there weren't any trans-fats in that fried chicken was there? Mayor Bloomberg or the coward who really wrote this post, KISS MY ASS!!!
