This is ridiculous!! What is this world coming to? All this young man was doing was what his father had asked of him. There's no reason he should be fighting for his life now.

I hope they catch the SOB's who did this to him. Hopefully this young man will make a speedy recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. May God Bless You..

Hmmm. So if he had been on his way to a store adjacent to Walmart, he would have been left alone? How did they know he was going to Walmart, I wonder?

When these happen in Oakland, I think the natural thought process was "It's gang related" or "Drug deal gone wrong". We now know the thugs coming out here are doing it for fun or gang initiation. It's pure evil and pointless.
