You people on here must be new to the city. Cause 2007 aint nothin compared to the 90's, so many bodies getting dropped you got numb to the violence.

Joe,
It's only right that I speak a few words to you. Most of our interactions growing up either dealt with basketball or girls... and we were always competing against each other to come out on top. I cant really speak about the life you chose, because since high school, I havent seen or heard from you. But I can speak about the good person that you were and the memories that you have left with everyone who was blessed enough to have met you. On the outside, there were times when you put up walls that made getting to know you more difficult, but that's nothing different from what any human does. Behind those walls were a guy who just wanted to have a good time and enjoyed making people laugh. May you rest in peace and share your kind spirit with your fellow angels in Heaven.

Why must we die before our time? The choices we make in life today, can order our steps for tomorrow. Life it too short. Get God if you don't have him!!

I live right across the street from this Mcdonalds. All I have to say is two words. Crack kills. This neighborhood is owned by the crack dealers. time to put a bullet in their heads and call it a day. if you don't agree then you should move over here and see for yourselves. we should start a crack dealers prison somewhere. If you have mercy for these people, then you likely live in Carmel and have never seen this area. I pack a 22mm and a 50,000volt stun gun and I won't hesitate to use them if I feel threatened. I'm moving out of this state soon and I'll never come back. You can keep it and flush it down the toilet for all I care.
they were both from the northside of indianapolis and this wasn't drug related...just because because they are black, doesn't mean that it had something to do with drugs...smh this was about something that happened in high school...in a township school. there are drugs everywhere...are you that dumb?!

Joe was a thug who tried to rob three different people on three different occasions I know of personally AT GUNPOINT when he was STILL a student at Pike. Did he deserve to die? Definitely not. Regardless of their mistakes nobody does. No one has the right to take the life of another. EVERYONE has a future.

But Joe did what he did, and this should be a message to all that violence begets violence. The cycle has to end at some point or we will go the same path the Romans did, and our Empire will collapse from the inside.

So don't think that Joe was a saint. Violence people commit almost always have a reason, even if the reason is just a territorial dispute. But mourn his death, and turn him into a martyr -- a political martyr. If you loved Joe the only thing you can do for him now is stop going on living your everyday life not caring about anything more than what you can see in front of you, like you always do, and THINK about the future in every action of every day. Get out and vote and make a difference. The power is with the people, and we don't even seem to realize it.

Oh and P.S. just because this shooting wasn't drug related doesn't mean Joe wasn't peddling drugs.

It's not the drugs that cause the violence -- it's the lifestyle of the black market. People who live in that world have no value for a fellow man's life.

he was shot in the head, so there wasn't much that they could have been done...you get shot at then you tell what you would have done...How do you know that they didn't call 911??? would you have been a sitting duck if you got shot at??
