it was also a safer place to live as well, because we all knew each other and weren't trying to kill each other every other day!back then it was rare to hear about a murder, and definately not in this end of the neighborhood, maybe on rice street back then, but, thats about as close as it came.
wasn't there a comic book store right across the street at one time?
old east side forever, baby!
Thats because the east side used to be a "working family" area. Now its Section 8 City.

just another dreg dead. An uneducated sloth whose idea of a good life was smoking cigarettes and staring out the window all day. This is just one less moron on the street that I have to worry about.

Whats really the tragedy, is that the politicians who want section 8 and to help these morons simply want a vote and are willing to sell out their communities.

To all the people who have nothing better to do then place PLACE JUDGEMENT!! No matter the situation who are you to talk about anyones family member?? No one is perfect and im sure you your selves have family members who have made mistakes or got into trouble wether they are Mexican, white, black or asian. I am not saying that you are not entitled to your opinion but for one you do not know the whole story and should be considerate that no matter what he was someone's father, son, brother, cousin or friend and he was LOVED and will be missed!!! Be mad and upset that such a tragedy had to occur but instead maybe say a prayer or volunter in the community rather then write non sence on the computer that wont make a difference anyway!!!

I'm truly sorry for your loss. But really, Topix is not the place to come to for friends and family members after something like this happens. People posting here are very cruel and judgmental of everyone else they deem to be low-class and not like themselves. Doesn't matter to them what the facts are, what the person was like or anything else. Quite a few posters on this site seem to have anger, racial, class and bigotry issues and really enjoy spewing their hate. It's better for you not to read anymore of the posts. It'll only make you more miserable then you are from losing your family member. Peace be with you.

Thank you for your comment and your right I will not be reading any of this non sense again! Unfortuntly I didnt know what happened so I looked it up and seen this article, It was a blow to see how mean people can be but then again like you said human nature is cruel! I too could be mad at the world for diferent reasons but instead I trust in good that good will prevail and I firmly believe that! Not even mad at the people that left the comments was just dissapointed! Thanks again for the words! Take care

Men may pardon, but God restores and forgives...
I think he should have been walking "with" God alot sooner, and this wouldn't have happened. I don't think church was in his daily routine :( I am however, sorry for the loss of his friends and family. No matter how "bad" a person is, they still leave behind someone who loved them. RIP
