PTSD or not he still shot and killed 2 innocent people one of them being a 15 year old boy. I think he deserves to serve a life sentence in jail for the lives he stole. Those boys families deserve AT LEAST that much. Lets give them the justice they deserve

INNOCENT!!!!!!! You weren't there so how would you know???? These boys looked up to one of the gang member named E.... E has put these boys to work doing his dirty deeds.. Including harrasing Ryan. Its been over a year with the harassment from this gang. This guy couldn't take it anymore. How would you feel if they were threatening your husband or boyfriend saying they were going to rape the F*** out of you and kill your babies??????? How the heck would you feel? SCARED RIGHT? Thats what ryan had dealt with. So don't put your opinion in when you are talking out of your ass!

People in Oakdale need to be educated on the gang activity. People can choose not to see it, but it doesn't change the reality of it. Saying we don't have gangs is like saying we don't have tweekers! And yes factually, Ryan was being harassed and threatened. He did not seek out the gang or have any desire to have this happen to him or his family. I will say it here as I have said it on other comments: Ryan did not pull the trigger, a scared, panicked, frantic, terrified man did. Any one that knows Ryan knows he would not just randomly harm anyone.

You all are stupid as fuck. Abel is my cousin and although he did hang out with gangs he was not a "gangster" he killed my cousin. And i dont care what any of you sayn you dont know what its lkke to lose someone and the person who killed them people are saying its okay.! Just because someone threatens you does not give a right to go kill them. And he would NEVER threaten anyone only defend so all of you take your heads out of your ass.

so its ok to tell a man that your going to rape his wife and babies then spit on a man in uniform? If one chooses to hang out with a gang and contribute to terrorizing a family then one should expect what ever negative backlash occurs. I don't agree with murder unless its self defense. I believe Ryan was not only defending himself but his family. Many people were witness that night, Ryan was surrounded by gang members and minions of 'E's gang. Maybe you should focus some of your anger on 'E' considering he used Ruben as his shield. He allowed that young boy to take a bullet for him. Think about that!! The truth will prevail! I'm sorry for your loss and Rubens family. But please do them justice and help end the gang violence in our community.

Ruben is my brother and how dare any of you people say f him... F you he was not in a gang... So don't run your mouths about people you don't know. If he felt threatened then don't go to that store!!! Stay away from that....it gave him no right to kill me 15 year old brother!!! He's a grown adult!!!

Im sorry for your brother, and i dont believe in people saying f him. But i do believe, as we all know he was hanging around the wrong people. Maybe he wasn't affiliated hard core with the northerns, but he was hanging around someone bad news. He was young and probably naive... And i think the leader "E" should take some blame on his part for guiding these young boys and letting these young boys take the heat of his own problems.. I mean i have known Ryan for years and hes a great guy. But was taunted bye E for almost a year in half.. Then when it came down for something like this "E" let your little brother take the heat. And im sure this leader has no remorse. Its the name of the game. No matter your age if you live by the gang you die by it. And like i said your poor brother was young and in the hands of very selfish men that didnt give a shit. Im so sorry for your lost. But all the blame is not just on Ryan... Everyone needs to be thinking WHY he did what he did.

I apologize for any of the rude comments but those boys DID know each other!!!!! Everyone's going to play stupid but it will come out.!!! And why isn't the gang leader E ( wont say full name just out of respect) come out and take responsibilities for letting these boys follow after him??? Soooo everything is the shooters fault?????? What we all need to look at is the question why it happened? This man must of been harassed and felt threatened to do what he did.. The younger boy maybe wasn't in the gang hard core but he was young and naive and followed in the footsteps of a monster.. And it cost him his life sadly.. I feel like E should be there right with ryan getting the same punishment! Don't you all agree???!
