Gee, Gramma. It appears that true justice - Karma - has already found your son. Maybe if you'd arranged better playdates for him....

What is the world comming to when people shoot other people because they get looked at the wrong way. Gangs what is the point in them? Perhaps if parents were more involved in thier kids lives we would not have such a bad problem with it.

So, in essence, this woman admits that he was a thug, and did nothing about it. Hummm...

She know he was a gang banger and did nothing about it? So justice is served. The gang banger is dead. Lets all calibrate the world is a little safer.

I think that the animals that do the drive-by shootings are a bunch of cowards that cannot think to settle an arguement the way they settled them back in my teen days.

To bad this mother, grandma couldn't keep her child away from the gang. Once he sat in the car he sighed his own death certificate. Way can't these kids go to the Rec center and play nice with a game, or use the weight to work off there anger at one another, why use the gun? Both sides lose?

Havent you all noticed that they only kill each other??? I'm not afraid of them because I dont belong to a gang.

I am totally suprised! Gosh gee whillickers. These kids were bad from the day they were born. Who's their "Daddy?" They probly don't have one. No positive role models to look up to.
Are they legal?

Wonder if they were illegal?

Then they probably will never get caught and punished, you know how it goes for them, they get off scott free.

Oh well...

Well we let the gangs shoot it out until only one or two gang bangers are left and then we hang them.

I have to say that I work with some gang kids. I work in a high school. All Im going to say is kids need positive role models and parents that know what thier kids are up to. I see parents that don't come to the conferences or say my kid never does anything wrong. They even go as far as helping them cover stuff up. That is not the way to be a parent. Be involved!!

I do not feel sorry for anyone that is in a gang, and they get killed. One less gang member, although from that one person, 2 more will join so they can get back at the other gang.

The legality isn't an issue I don't think. Sorry, I haven't known, seen, or heard of a mexican national named Gary. Just sayin...the issue is, where are the fu**in fathers? Time after time we see mothers coming on the news pleading about their sons (daughters). This isn't racism, this is real...when a community (black) has an illegitimacy of 70%, what the he** do you think is going to happen? The hispanic rate isn't far behind. Seriously. Get a clue about your man before you breed.

Gee, something tells me that Ector was no boy scout. Did anyone check to make sure he was legal?
