legally yes he is just as guilty, but when your in a car when you have no control over what the others do, are you really just as guilty as them ? morally ? i gauranty that ricky had no clue that angel was going to pull the trigger.. its just a simple case of wrong placce at the wrong time and its a shame alot of morons cant take the time to realize that it only takes 1 man to pull a trigger and that this was not a planned murder. my regards go out to all the families in this case and my prayers go out to maria hicks, ricardo rolon, and cesar lopez because they are truly the inicent when it comes to this murder case !!!!!
Sorry, my last comment should have been for this one. I agree with you second thoughts, not yup-yup.

Your right times are different people are now more stupid than ever.flashing your lights and honking your horn doesn't give anyone the right to take a persons life. They had no buisness writing on that wall.times have changed kids are now raised with no respect or values! How can you say anything to condone or justify what they did to her! They were completly in the wrong no matter how you look at it.A life taken over a can of spray paint my God is this what our society has come to?

She was coming home saw a kid writing on a wall that she had to look at everyday, flashed her lights and honked her horn.she wasn't looking for hand to hand combat.What were they doing writing on that wall? Why were they out past curfew? Where were their parents? These are questions we should be asking! I'm so tired of people blaming the victim what about the criminals? she didn't deserve what they did to her and her family doesn't deserve the pain they are going through.What about asking them what were they thinking of.

yeah, i still have very mixed feelings about this lady's death. it sucks that she got killed, but in a way that she kinda brought it on herself. if she did that honking, high beam flashing in downtown la, well, she would not have done that over there because people know better. i mean to say she was a doing a good thing by trying to stop the tagging but she was also doing a dumb thing by being a vigilante. look where it got her. i am sorry but that is how i feel, even if i am the only one.

I kind of agree with HOWIE & JUICE, but the guys who did this need to be humiliated. They were cowards and little week kids. We need to bring back the tar and feather thing. That would've been sweet justice! Tar and Feather then march them down the street wearing a sandwich board with a picture of Maria Hicks stating what they did to her. Humiliation is much more effective then JUST jail time. Just putting my 2 cents.

Feel how you want, that's the beauty of our country. But you must admit, Right is right and wrong is wrong. No matter how you look at it. "What if's" don't matter now.

First of all let me say how sorry i am to the hicks family. I understand and feel their grieve. I'm not here to offend anyone but i just want to let all you judgers and how dare you crtize someone you don't know. It's really funny how you are led by th media and television and news. I'm not defending the criminals and yes maybe they are but please if you don't know don't judge. what makes you think you are less different than them. your all falling in their own sinical game here you are just pointing fingers without even knowing the real story. by the way not all ricky's family are the same i should know. And no his mother didn't turn away while his son was being who he was. Your all wrong if you didnd't know let me educate you a little more on that. his older brother went to berkely and now is a top notch buisness guy his 23 year old brother is a general contractor and his younger brother goes to berkely high school. not to mention his sister, she serve the military for eight yrs. now she is a probation officer and by the way she herself turn her brother in. so to let you all know his family is far beyond the thug life. his sister knows the real truth and if she didn't feel sympathy for maria hicks she wouldn't even turn her own blood in. did i mention his mom works for the l a times. please if you don't know don't point fingers. And he did take care of his children and he did have a job which was working for direct t.v. like i said earlier i am very truly sorry for th hicks family and sorry is not goin to bring back their mom or gandma but i hope justice will at least give them some type of satisfaction.
