I know these boys, they love each other. Ofcourse they argue, their bound to fight, they were BROTHERS...HELLO!! You must be white, because you seem like a morbit soul, and need to rethink your priorties. You'd want closure if you accidently killed your sibling. So Fee or whatever they call you, I think next time you should keep your unwanted comments to your damn self!

What does that have to do with being white? Are you saying that all Black kids play with knives? You can't be serious.This has nothing to do with race. Just a kid that didn't know how to handle his anger and ended up killing his brother. Some people forgive and some don't. Sad story.

Jahmir is a very nice kid. He just made a mistake and I don't think that he should have life in prison as a child. On the prison side of view I think that he deserves a second chance.

Another fine example of imprisonment being missused in place of a good psyc eval and treatment. The only person really being punished here is the mother. Kids flip out sometimes. Big brothers can go a long way to anger and tease little brothers. That kid must have been fuming to go that far. I'm not saying it's right or making excuses for him, but he is only a child. It's not like he's some conspiring murderer. He flipped out and it was a temper tantrum gone bad.
He needs anger management. Not prison time. He needs to be with his mother. Not to be conditioned within the system.

Jahmir is a nice person and everyone needs a 2nd chance. He lost his brother and maybe some of his friends he has been through alot. I deep down he is very sorry.

well for those who dont know jah or any of his family you need to get a strong backround on him because what happened was obviously an acident just one of those family fueds that simply escaladed into something major. POINT BLANK yes i agree with " Rita " because one cannot judge anything he simply knows nothing about."FEE" im pretty sure you have a family /if not you weren't the only child!!! get real children/siblings argue GET OVER IT

How do you accidently stab someone to death? thats the most retarded thing i've ever heard. even if he didn't mean it to be lethal, you can't accidently pick up a knife and stab someone, disregarding that knives injure and kill people. and what the hell are you talking about "you must be white", why? because white people don't !@#$ing stab each other over video games? wtf does that have to do with being white anyways? you're a moron. the kid killed someone, his own brother at that, what should be done? a slap on the wrist?

No love here. He killed someone and should be punished just like any one else who kills. Age should not be an issue.
