Oh my God, I just read the story of Keon. I am like shocked that he liked stood on a car while it was like going down the road!! Why was he doing that. Like I'm daring but like I don't do anything that like might hurt me. I am real sorry that you like lost your friend. Did I read right and like he was only like 13?? Oh My God that is so young. I read that like some of his friends like ran off. Why would they like do that?? Why didn't they like call ambulance??I have like the 911 speed number on my I. I was so shocked to like read this. Oh my God I am like once again like real sorry.

The young man paid the ultimate price for his mistake by losing his life. I feel for the family. What about the friends?? They left him to die. How convient to say they had unauthorized access to the vehicle. What is going to happen to the owner of the vehicle? Some irresponsible parents just hand over the keys!! Is this the case??? If not, say it like it is STOLEN!!
HID FRIENDS TRYED TO HELP HIM BUT THERE WAS NUTTIN THEY COULD DO!!!HIS COUSIN WAS THE FIRST TO RSPOND AND HE COULDNT DO ANYTHING BUT WAIT FOR HELP!!!!!!!!!!

What you should concetrate on is an education. Do you know how ignorant those posts makes you look? Where is the justice for Keon? I know his father and I feel for him, because I know it hurt him and he taught him better than that. Keon paid the ultimate price (his life)for his actions do you not understand that? He paid the price, but what about the ones involved? The so called friends, the parent that owned the vehicle? I have children too, but I do not hand the keys over to them. Why are you defending the ones that left him behind to die? This tragedy may have never happened if they did not have access to a vehicle. Grow up!
But really TRUTH u kno not the slightest idea of what people had to go through to get over the whole situation and obviously you care for no ones inner feelings at all u have no heart or sense and growing up is exactly wat we all are trying to do. but people like u and who ever else disagrees with the whole situation dont seem to GROW UP and understand that!!!! U cant just blame blame blame certain people because of wat u think about the situiation thats not the grown up thing to do about it How bout next time keep ur comments to ur self.

Even people with horrendous grammar and writing skills grieve. I know it's hard to not point this out to them because it's embarrassing, but we still need to show some sensitivity.

I swear teenagers brains are not fully developed until mid 20s. It's like something is just not clicking. They make some of the stupidest decisions. Why the @($W# were they surfing on top of a moving vehicle?!!!! Maybe this is Darwinism at it's best.

First of all, mind your fucking business. Are you telling me that as a little dumb fuck you didn't make any bad decisions that would disappoint your parents, whom obviously didn't teach you respect or generosity. Your mind is so small it's pitiful, possibly that's your parent's fault? You know nothing of his background or his struggles as a child nor what type of person he was. He was 13 years old and you're not even half of the man he would've been today. I bet your parents are FAR from perfect, and we already know where you fall on the podium. Obviously upset in your life. Sit down and get a grip, because your shit does stink.
