So the people that were there with him when he blew himself up aren't in any way responsible for his death ?? Sounds like a very lazy prosecutor to me........

So what would you charge them with? They didn't force this man to do this. YES they were there to watch. Yes it was stupid on their part, but as we see time and time again stupid is not against the law.(But maybe it should be)

Like the respect you have shown people on the eastside? Do you only want that respect for people who might have the same skin pigmentation as yourself?

What the hell was he doing making a bomb, the ingredients which included propane? Was he experimenting with a bomb so he could try it out on some unsuspecting group of students or other people? When it didn't go off, why didn't he call the Police and have them come out with a bomb disposal unit? What happened to him may have prevented some type of terrorist attack. Feel sorry for him? I don't think so!!

Let this be a lesson to use extreme caution when checking on bombs that should already have exploded!

Not the first time such an incident has occured. reminds me of the incident in 1974 when two kids were killed and one severely injured at 46th and Millersville Rd. Started with rocket engines then progressed up to a large device. When it failed to detonate they went back to check on it. It exploded as they were looking down on the device. Pre-Columbine, just curious freshman from Cathedral.

Horrible example you are, when you address people as "Trash." I would say you're just encouraging the very bahvior you're railing against.

There's a BIG difference between a teen doing something stupid, and a 19 year old MAN making a bomb.

What a bunch of judgemental cretins! One person tries to urge you into acting like caring, responsible individuals and a poster writes back accusing her of racism. Another poster thinks Cox must be a terrorist. What a bunch of low life idiots!

He may have been a teenager, but 19 is considered an adult in the eyes of the law. Certainly, if he'd survived, he would have been prosecuted as an adult.
