Cold hearted people, huh?
I'd say cold hearted might be like..... oh I don't know, shooting someone who wouldn't give you his money? And cold hearted might be, perhaps, not feeling for the victim because he was white, not ghetto??? Can't relate to the victim??
In this case there is no doubt who did the crime, and no evidence at all that Mr. Smith did anything to deserve it. None.
There are several people in this chat who simply can't grasp the seriousness of what he did. If you were able to assess the crime honestly, you wouldn't be saying what you are saying.
"Ortexis just killed a white dude, right?"
Genius. Pure genius.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn.-- A 16-year-old has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing a father of four in a Bridgeport rooming house in December 2004.

Superior Court Judge Roland Fasano asked Ortexis "Tex" Ramos on Friday whether he wanted to account for his actions.

"It was a senseless, cold murder and illustrates what happens when guns get in the hands of children," said Assistant State's Attorney Margaret Kelly, who told Fasano she was shocked Ramos showed no remorse.

^^^set the last three words there everybody?? Should have been 50 years then. Rot, you garbage.

listen people make stupid choices!!!! people also make choices before they think. whatever the case may be no one has "final say-so" the only people that know what went on in that house that night is ortexis and chris. so therefore as far as people being cold-hearted and outspoken {is what im gonna call it} i feel that everybody should keep their thoughts/opinions to themselves. honestly the judge can give him 25 years but when it comes down to it the only one that can really judge him is the same one thats gonna judge you -real talk-

Ms.Rios,Mandie M and Shay...
Your little "Victim" Friend CHOSE to KILL a Father of 4...And with all the Evidence in the Case pointing to him,Margaret Kelly did a Great job in sending him where he belongs.As a Matter of fact,She cut your little "Victim Friend" a deal.He should have recieved the DEATH PENALTY.When the Holidays/Birthdays/Father Day,Come around..Go see what your little Friend did to the REAL victims in this Case...You People live in a Backwards World,Where you Cheerlead for the Criminals.The Criminals are YOUR Heros.It's sad that you have no Morals,And that's very hard to understand.

Im not disagreeing with a persons responsibility of owning up to there actions.But Just if you and I were to be sitting in the hot seat..can you picture people that personally dont care whether you live or die holding your life in there hands. Your right ortexis was found "guilty".Simply What im saying is, as easy as it was for a jury of your "peers"(next door neighbors,co wrokers people with no skill etc.) to find him guilty of something, it could as well just have been yourself or a loved one.Not saying that I dont care about that victim and His family, my warmess regards go to Him and his loved ones.All though.. I do feel that everyone is allowed a second chance with out others like yourself and I judging them, we as humans dont have the right to judge another person for the mistakes or wrong descisions that they have decided in there lifes.

There was a trial and plenty of opportunity for this guy and his attorney to offer a plausable explanation of his actions, if there was one. However, it seems the jury was not impressed and found him guilty.

Personaly I feel He is a good kid. You are all some cold hearted fucks.I bet that if either one of you were to be sitting behind bars you wouldnt be to quick to side on the death penalty either!!!!! You never no what that man did to him "a young boy" and know one knows what the fuck was going on in his life at the time! For all you no who is to say he did it??? How many times has a innocent man been put behind bars??? no answer huh? you no why? too many thats why! I wanna ask you guys something, if one of your kids goes to jail for killing a man hey who knows maybe the man was touching your young daughter so your son kills him ....Now would you be able to stand in front of the judge and say my son deserve to die in jail! Fuck all you naive pricks. Ortexis Ramos Had many things going for him and if He is one thing or another it damn sure aint no cold blooded KILLER. People like you guys are are killers how can you try to determine another mans fait you act as if he killed your father or that was your husband.He should pay for what he did but not with his life "YOU DONT TAKE A LIFE FOR A LIFE"
warmess blessings to ortexis ramos and family.

TINI: bitch you don't no shit about that boy!!! or do you... umm i think not, you have no idea the shit that little boy went threw !! just because you live in your little fucked up fantasy world and see everything as perfect there are people out here that actually do need help!!!! and instead of people doing anything about it they sit back and watch! like a fuckin lion watches over pray, patiently waiting for that person to do something that will change his or her life for the worse!! Never mind taking the time out to help a person from self destruction who can not help them selves. In the little 16 yrs. of the life ortexis knew he had never been led in any direction from you from them from me know one!!! He had to fin for him self Oh" but unlike you and I see he didn't have mom and dad at home cooking dinner making sure there kids were safe, but just like all goody toe shoes BITCH your to blind to see that! Instead of the system helping him giving him the proper treatment, they did excatly what everyone else did to him "threw him in a fuckin box and left him to fin for himself!alone in this cold world!!!with no one to turn to!!!

Too bad he didn't shoot you, I see that the world would be a better place without scum bags like your and him.

What is "fin for himself". This is America, we speak ENGLISH here, moron.

People our prisons are overcrowded now. I say the only way to address the issue of overcrowded prisons is to execute the low life scum of the earth burdens of society that murder innocent American citizens A.S.A.P. This idiot did not give the man he killed a second chance and the animal does not need to be out of prison in 25 years to murder again! The animal decided it was a man when it took a gun and shot to death another man for money. It needs to be executed A.S.A.P.
