Product of his environment??? That is just a tired old excuse. EVERY human being knows the difference between right and wrong. EVERYBODY knows that selling drugs is selling poison to your own people.
The majority of the people from the hood work real jobs and work hard. Peace to everybody from BPT, BX, BK, New Haven, that works a real job. Doesn't matter if you are a cashier, janitor, or run a hedge fund. Keep your head up!

how is dexter hill dying any different than kyle schneider, the kid that went to warde that was killed in may? Both drug dealers who sadly had their lives taken early. oh yeah, since dexter's from bridgeport its his fault he died. people dont show him any respect after death but kyle schneider is a saint since he's a white kid from fairfield. r.i.p. to both you kids
Unless you have some facts about Kyle, then don't bring him into this. There's been no evidence that he was a dealer, and if you know something different you should report it to the police instead of slandering him in this forum. It's not the same thing, it's a different case entirely. Regardless of that though, no kid should have his life taken away so young and I feel sorry for the families and friends of both of these young people.

Tashaya, it wasn't right, no one has the right to take a life of another as the way that Dex died. Know that you need to just scratch all the bullsh-t out of your head that these negative people are talking about;who are no doubt being used by the devil. Instead of talking crap they should be looking for solutions to stop drastic crimes like these.

The bottom line is this....a young man is dead and another family is left to mourn a senseless loss. Stop the childish name calling and finger pointing and make yourself useful by DOING something to help the community. Otherwise....SHUT YOUR MOUTHS!
