Dallas went to my school we were really good friends. Knowing that he is locked up makes me sad if he wasnt the one who killed Reed Ballard then i dont think hw should be locked up yes he was part of the scene but not the crime that was commited ...i think they should lower the price on Dallas and the rest of the students that were invloded with it but didnt kill him the kid (15 year old ) should be the only on who in in prisoned for killing him......

There are alot of opinions regarding this case...I will say it again...all of these kids were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Its too bad that a young man had to die for the community to take notice. Its too bad that the one who actually pulled the trigger will spend very little time in jail for killing a man. I am the mother of a boy who knows Dallas, this young man has been in my home, and I pray that he keeps his chin up and keeps the faith!! He is a good kid that most likely got caught up in the wrong crowd. Do I believe that he set this up, no I don't!! He is a kind young man, and I have seen nothing but respect come from him. I hope he knows that the people and his friends from Newark are praying for him. Our prayers also go out to Reed's family and friends, and hope that they make it through this very difficult time. I hope that all of the people passing judgment on these kids remember that it could have been one of yours.

Too bad that when you are with someone that does that, then you are responsible too. That's the law. They were all there for a robery, and unfortunately it went wrong. All 7 of them should be held responsible. When will you kids ever learn that you can't get away with terrorizing people? Give 'em the death penalty! Especially Miguel.

Dallas was an accessory to murder. He claimed the other victim broke into his home, without reporting the incident, or having proof of who commited this crime, blamed the other victim. It was a set up that Dallas was involved in... HE SHOULD BE IN JAIL... AND FOR A LOOOONNNGGGG TIME!

You should get your facts straight....dallas never said or implied that it was his home that was broken into, that was Miguel. While he should be there for his part in it, that part IS NOT Capital Murder. Time and a trial will bring out the real truth, I hope to find that all of you who are sooooooo quick to pass judgement on others when he is found innocent of the charge against him. Think before you speak, especially things you know very little about!!

The last thing I can stand is stupid remarks. Either way it went, Dallas chose to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. HE IS APART OF MURDER!!!! Wether he shot the gun or not. HE WAS THERE.

But it,s time that I left all forums I,am going to be doing alot of storm chasing now and not to metion doging baseballs at the ball=park. Today I skinny toothpicked size man came up to my door crying and whinning all over a lame responce I gave to him along time ago. I had to chase him off my property so he would stop whinning. No it wasn,t eal are any of these other guys but some guy from the far past. Again get used to these odd forums.
I've read your previous comments... you clearly have some issues.... We refuse to choose another topic to discuss because the victims in this case are family or close friends. If you have nothing better to do then get involved in something you don't know anything about and have nothing considerate to say, then you should contact someone for help.

wow, its amazing how people realize after the fact that they them selves or a loved one was with the wrong crowd at the wrong place or time. Common people wake up, wanting to be a badass is a choice....so he or she will always be with wrong crowd in the wrong place at the wrong time...

screw everyone that thinks its OK to let your friend TAKE A GUN to a stupid fight. MY FRIEND IS DEAD. for what?? nothing, being in the wrong place at the wrong time? AND that STUPID kid walks with a tiny bit of time? I GOT A LIFE SENTENCE THAT DAY. and multiple stupid kids walk away with murder. I WANT MY FRIEND BACK, SCREW DALLAS AND EVERYONE THAT WAS INVOLVED WITH KILLING AN INNOCENT MAN. and for a mother to come say he's so good, how would you feel if it was your kid? and my friend was the one who called and told us to " come get him?" and you NEVER saw your child again. think about idiot. if people choose to act like dogs, we shall treat them like dogs. regardless of age, even at 15, you know what is right and wrong, going with your buddys to "fight" with a LOADED WEAPON, its wrong.
