Look like some real pieces of sh** to me. I say they suffer the same fate as the young man they killed.

Well what can one say? I'm sure these were good men who took care of their illegitimate children and were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It wasn't God, it was the Alb. SWAT team.

I want to know how they are being charged with attempted malicious wounding when the person these boys wounded died! It should be murder one or at least murder two!

that would be the additional charges pending. They can stick them with the lesser charges now, and wait til they roll or the evidence begins piling up before issuing the formal charges for the murder.

<quoted text>Unneccessay! This doesn't solve a thing. This is why there is so much violance. An innocent man gone and now everyone wants to retaliate. God has the final say so let him do his thing. So more innocent people can expect to get hurt or worse because you can't let it go. More violence won't bring him back. It just creates more hurt for someone else. At some point we have to grow up and be adults.
WELL PUT. Thanks for a person with a true meaning of God. Thank you.

STOP being pussies and fight like humans if you got problems..take MMA classes or Karate you idiots..guns solve problems for people that are to much of a puss to stand up for themselves..

This is sad to hear that someone would wan't to hurt someones family members that have nothing to do with what happened! It is terrible what happened to David, these 2 apparently are in connection cause they were arrested, but who know's who actually did it, in the article it states they are looking for more ppl. I think its a shame that ppl want to "get back" and who ever did it. Im sure you are hurting, but this isn't the way. David's life is gone, it affected a lot of ppl, friends, family and most importantly his kids, the person that did it has affected his life, friends, family and again most importantly his kids. Yes the person that did it is a @zz but let the law handle it, it is not YOUR place. Do you want to sit in prison for the rest of your life and affect your friends, family and kids if you have any??!! come on now. And the spect vs. jects is stupid that crap been played out, everyone living in those areas obviously went to school together. GROW UP! They will get what is deserved, you aren't the one to decide. Oh, and for the record, I hope the police look your IP address up and arrest you! Sounds to me you are no better than the @zz this did this in the first place. I don't condone in any way what happened, but don't be just like who ever did this either! It's NOT the right thing to do and I'm sure David wouldn't want you to ruin your life as well, whoever you are! RIP DAVID!

It's insane the number of racist comments in this discussion.

Give me a break. The idiots making the racist comments need to grow up and get over themselves.

FYI illegitimate children.... not to defend anyone here cause wrong is wrong, but if you don't know someone you shouldn't talk on them. There is a married man here that did take care of his child. Just saying. And it's said that his wife and children are having to deal with this. I see that they are still looking for more ppl. Just wondering who actually did this. So sad. all these kids and families and lives ruined. over nothing. smh

But, but what could the common thread be that brought all of these men together in the early morning hours where one lost his life? The lowest common denominator, if you will? As others are being sought it now looks not three, but several more may be complicit. At 2:45 on a week day morning, not exactly prime commuting time, multiple shots ring out. Looking past the usual superficial reporting we should ask ourselves the question "What is the root cause here, what actually caused this to occur." Oddly enough this question rarely gets answered in Charlottesville---I wonder yet again, what vested financial interest or institution is behind the town's Mafia like code of silence or "omerta?"
