This is a sad sign of how far out culture has sunk. She had this baby, did not marry the father, kept the kid in that neighborhood, and you trash me. It's lucky the kid wasn't also killed, like Siera Savage was. I've heard it said that there are no illigitimate children, and I believe that. Children are a gift from G-d. But there are a lot of illigitimate parents.
I did not trash you Dave. You trashed yourself .... This isn't about the little girl's father who we both know nothing about because it's none of our business. I agree with you when you say children are a gift from God. That's the reason why I told you God gave Jahieda's daughter life. That's who Jahieda is with right now, God. He took her because he wanted her home with him. It doesn't matter how she died. When God calls you home, that's exactly where you're going. He didn't put you on earth to judge his children. Stop acting self righteous. You act as though you lived a perfect life. You, me and Every human being in this world has done a lot of wrongs in our lifetime. Posting nonsense on this thread is not helping the situation. If you don't like what's going on in York then get up from behind your computer, do something other than post rhetorical condescending remarks. If the girl wasn't married she wasn't married. You are trying to degrade this girl and her family. I've read plenty of your post. Most of your comments are meant to demean and humiliate. You don't care about Miss Minier or her daughter. Just because your life is out of order (and it shows) doesn't mean you have to make other people, feel the same way you do..... A 20 year old child is dead and all you have to offer is your snobbish gibberish..... We are not going to have a back and forth debate on the issue again. Act like a human being.... Respect Miss Minier's family, especially her little daughter. Are you old enough to understand, when a family loses a loved one, you shouldn't rub salt in their wounds? They're are hurting right now. Do you remember how it felt when one of your loved ones past away? They feel the same pain. Show some respect and pray for the entire situation..... Goodbye & Have a Merry Christmas.

My life is in order, and no I have not lived a perfect life. If you feel demeaned by what I said, well, if the shoe fits.....

I am old enough that I have lost many beloved family members. I feel for the little girl, but what chance did she ever have in that environment?

You did miss something Dave...... The common sense to know that YDR didn't write this article to you, so if you missed something, that's the reason they didn't mention her baby's father, because the name Dave wasn't posted on the story..... I know of Jahieda's mother.... This 20 year old lived through obstacles you or I never endured. You are nobody to say who should or should not have a child. God gave her daughter life. You should worry about yourself and your family and hope nothing like this happens to you or someone you loved dearly because it could be reality for YOU one day, believe that. Doesn't matter where you are, what time of the day or night. Death is everywhere. I know because it happened to my family... A family member who worked two jobs to support his family was gunned down right in front of his home coming from his second job. Robbed and shot to death leaving his wife and children behind, not in the city, but in the suburbs.... Have some respect for her family, stop acting like an insensitive jackass. Sounds like your mother should've stayed a virgin. She infact raised an ignorant child.

It amazes me that people have such ill-mannered ways of speaking about someone. I grew up with Jahieda, I know her family personally, and we've both lived down the street from each other for about 10 years. We both grew up around violence and were FORCED to endure a lot of heartache and pain. We've lost friends, some closer to us than some of our own families. We grew up faster than we should have but does that make us bad people? No. It doesn't. It made us strong people. Stronger than many of you who don't know anything about us or our situations growing up. You don't know the things we've encounter or the situations we've had to deal with. She was 20 yrs old... what exactly was it that she was supposed to do?? In your perfect little world where nothing bad ever happens you would make this out to be as if she deserved what happened to her. That she brought this on herself but how does that even makes sense? Who WANTS to leave their child behind, their family, their friends? Who WANTS to die in the cold, outside, and in such an awful way?? NO ONE! Not you. Not me. And especially not her! For all of you IGNORSNT people, and yes I mean it grammatically correct, who are so quick to judge others I pray for you. I do this because I feel sorry for you and your families for having such a close minded way of thinking. May God bless the families of both VICTIMS, as well as their friends. Jahieda, we miss you. You may be gone but you will NEVER be forgotten! Love you, always!

Oh and for someone SMART who would point it out IGNORSNT is a typo... it should read IGNORANT. I wouldn't want you to think it was ironic for me to spell the word ignorant incorrectly. so I fixed it before anyone had anything to say.

YOU KNOW DAVE YOU ARE ALWAYS ON HERE POSTING STUFF WHEN IT COMES TO SOMETHING IN THE CITY AND YOU ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO SAY. FIRST OFF GET A LIFE AND STAY OFF THE COMPUTER ALWAYS POSTING RUDE COMMENTS SECOND SO WHAT IF SHE DIDN'T MARRY THE FATHER OF THE CHILD. YOU QUICK TO JUDGE BUT HOW YOU KNOW IF THEY WEREN'T MARRIED AND SEPEARATED HOW DO YOU KNOW IF THEY NOT ENGAGED HOW DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING AND THEN AGAIN IT DON'T MATTER WHAT IT WAS BETWEEN HER AND THE FATHER A LIFE WAS TAKING AND A CHILD IS MOTHERLESS. LOOK AT YOUR FAMILY IS YOUR PARENTS TOGETHER IF SO YOUR DAD PROBABLY CHEATED. AND YOU SO WORRIED ABOUT HER TAKING HER CHILD OUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD SOMETIMES ITS NOT THAT EASY MY GRANDMOTHER LIVES DOWN THE STREET AND ALL HER KIDS WERE RAISED THERE AND THAT DON'T MAKE THEM BAD PEOPLE. SO INSTEAD OF KNOCKING ANYBODY GET OUT AND HELP AND KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT WHY COMMENT AND BE IGNORANT. ALL THAT MATTERS IS A LIFE IS LOST AND NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO JUDGE AND A FAMILY IS HURTING SO DAVE MIND YOUR BUISNESS AND KEEP YOUR COMMENTS TO YOURSELF. PEOPLE LIKE YOU MAKE ME SICK YOU PROBABLY A SEX OFFENDER OR SOMETHING DON'T EVEN COMMENT NO MORE B/C I KNOW YOU ARE FAR FROM PERFECT AND HAVE NO ROOM TO DOWNGRADE ANYONE OR THEIR FAMILY...R.I.P JAHEIDA AND IDDER AND MY PRAYERS ARE WITH THE FAMILY

Yes, the abusive and cruel remarks will follow, because most times that is the response, as to throw salt in the family's wounds. Yep, sounds like there was a history of crime that ran deep. Whether it be for easy money, a desparate situation, or lack of better judgement; there was probably drugs involved. However, we did not walk in her shoes and feel as if the choices were limited. It is tough for a young adult to break the cycle of crime and keep the goals she apparently strived to achieve. No matter what you may think of the situation, keep in mind, she was loved, and these people are grieving. Remember there by the grace of God, because it could be your child that makes a bad choice, or perhaps is in the wrong place at the wrong time. The thing is, how do we break the never ending cycle of this? Didn't know her, but can only empathize with the grief.
Thank you for this post. You so eloquently hit both sides of this tragedy. I think everyone can relate to making poor decisions at one point in their life. It is just such a shame that she will never have the chance to redeem herself and the choices that she made.

No it can't. And, for the record, it is "you're" not "your" and "their", not "there".

I would like to express something to this guy named Dave,about my friend Jahieda.1.)She was one of the nicest people you would have ever met.2.)Yes,she had a baby illegitamately,but,who are you to judge her?Her daughter is not her murderer.3.)I watched this little girl grow into a beautiful woman,the lessons in life she endured and made it through.4.)Yes,it was 3:00a.m. in the morning and she did have someone watching her babygirl.Not like some people who lock their children in the house and go out like it was nothing.5.)I pray earneatly that something like this never,ever happens in your family.You can be the most responsible ,caring,loving person in the world.But,their are always the wrong people out their with guns waiting and watching.6.)They preyed on her like thieves in the night,and took a young beautiful mothers' life.7.)This had nothing to do with drugs,so we will leave that issue alone.8.)People always make assumptions before they know the facts.Karma does not walk alone,and Death is her sister!!! Stop using such harsh judgement against her.I will pray for you always!!!!
