i believe that he dont deserve 25 years for the he is young everyone makes mistakes and yes i do feel sorry for the smiths family and he should pay for what he did but i dont think it should have to be 25 years of his life 5 to 7 is fine maybe he laerns his lesson by then but please dont let him spend 25 years of his life there.

U R Correct, Ortexis does not deserve 25 years. He deserves the death penalty. Why should he be allowed to breathe when he took the life of a person in cold blood with no remorse. People like Ortexis, should be put on public display and stoned to death.

I'd argue that 25 years is a fair penalty. He DID kill someone people! Besides, at 16 years old you can't get the death penalty...at least that's my understanding.

this should make people open up their eyes and realize what kind of world we are living in and try to change something about it. people suffer everyday and it does'nt matter where your from, Iraq,U.S,Mexico, or what your suffering from, proverty,homless, just try to make a diffrence!!

Doing something like that would make the world worse although it may seem like it'd solve something; it won't take the pain or hate away or bring the victim back.

HE DOESNT DESERVE TO ROT IN JAIL FOREVER HE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES IN LIFE AND THOUGH THE ONE HE MADE MAY BE WORSE THAN OTHERS HE DOESNT DESERVE TO BE IN THERE FOR 25 YEARS! YOU DON`T KNO HIM OR ANYTHING ABOUT HIM TO SAY HE DESERVES TO BE PUT ON PUBLIC DISPLAY AND STONED TO DEATH! HOW BOUT THIS JAY-C AND JAY TEE YOUR MOTHERSZ YEA YOU DONT LIKE THE SOUND OF THAT SO DONT TALK ABOUT HIM LIKE THAT! I THINK HE SHOULD DO MAYBE 6 OR 7 OF 25 BUT NOT THE WHOLE THING!

Oh Ms.Rios,
I might be wrong here.But,The only reason I can see you siding with this Jerk,is because You might be carring his Child...Like I stated,I might be wrong.
This kid is smart enough to know Right from Wrong.And he was ABSOLUTLY wrong. He is a Killer,Don't you get it?..K-I-L-L-E-R..of another Human-Being.
Tell the victims family what a Nice Kid he is.Maybe stop by during the Holidays..See what this Nice Kid Did.

Personaly I feel He is a good kid. You are all some cold hearted fucks.I bet that if either one of you were to be sitting behind bars you wouldnt be to quick to side on the death penalty either!!!!! You never no what that man did to him "a young boy" and know one knows what the fuck was going on in his life at the time! For all you no who is to say he did it??? How many times has a innocent man been put behind bars??? no answer huh? you no why? too many thats why! I wanna ask you guys something, if one of your kids goes to jail for killing a man hey who knows maybe the man was touching your young daughter so your son kills him ....Now would you be able to stand in front of the judge and say my son deserve to die in jail! Fuck all you naive pricks. Ortexis Ramos Had many things going for him and if He is one thing or another it damn sure aint no cold blooded KILLER. People like you guys are are killers how can you try to determine another mans fait you act as if he killed your father or that was your husband.He should pay for what he did but not with his life "YOU DONT TAKE A LIFE FOR A LIFE"
warmess blessings to ortexis ramos and family.

A jury found Ramos guilty of murder based on the evidence, so he deserves to be in prison. If he was your boyfried, then taht's too bad.
