he should do life with no chance for parole. how is this bringing justice to the family who lost a brother/uncle/cousin. this is terrible. i understand it was a gang initiation, but this kid did not deserve to die, and now his killer will do 42 months in jail in which he'll do like 35 months.
I'll bet he's black.

No,,I'll bet he's BLACK too and I'd win that bet! It's not ignorant to speak the truth. Have to say this is a total miscarriage of justice. There is no way this makes up for the taking of a life. Should have been the firing squad!

How is this any different from what US soldiers do on a daily basis to Iraqi's that don't want their country occupied by a foreign power?
