I believe he also needs to be in prison, actually i think you needs to be put to death, he is a coward and a liar just like his trashy mom and sister, if anyone has ever seen these two one would think that they were in alb. driving down central ave.but the girls on central would probably have better luck. They are cheap,used and dirty filthy wh*r*s no decent man wants them so the mother has to go and chase young wanna be gangster and the daughter has had all the wanna be gangster so she has to pursue the old and disgusting men. Now your talking about this being his "second murder", who else has he killed? Why did'nt anybody mention this before??????????

Put him away so we can feed and clothe the S.O.B. until he dies. Either way we pay for him, and he is just going to do what he's doing. After all he is just from another dysfunctional home us hardworking tax paying citizens are paying for.

Amazing how us innocent, hardworking, tax paying citizens have to keep paying for them either way! Sure, throw him in jail for life so we can pay for his expenses for life.

I fail to see how a person can be shot in the back and the tops of the shoulders and still be attacking or threatening the shooter. Sounds to me like someone is covering up the truth.
If this is the case I think Governor Martinez is on track with the death penalty and it should be invoked in this case regardless of the shooters age.

makes me sick to think this kid is trying to get away with this, I think if you got the guts to go outside with a gun then you should be mentally prepared to commit a crime and do the time. He took some beautiful kids's father away and that's not cool. RIP BEN!

Ben, the victim, has a family that is standing behind the state you idiot. Gerardo is guilty of shooting an innocent person. He isn't guilty of confronting his abuser. If that would've been the case then Gerardo should've been shooting his dead beat parents for child abuse. He's been in and out of juvenile courts since he was 10, his parents deserve to be locked away for good.

My sister got the snot beat out of her by her boyfriend. As their two children watched. Numerous times. He was good for couple years. Then last fall he did it again. She was unrecognizable. Finally she moved out an is now trying to live a normal life. The boyfriend is a repeat offender. He is out on the streets as of right now. Free. My point is if BEN was a nice guy he wouldn't be where he is now. What goes around comes around. I'm not defending perez's actions. Perez should have known better. But sometimes u have to do what u have to do. Blood is thicker than water.

Sounds like 2 pieces of trash waived guns at each other, and suprise....one of them was killed. Whatever happened to being a man and settle things with your fists? If the guy really was beating up on the kid's sister, then the kid has every right to be furious. But, the fact that both of them had guns, regardless of who pointed a gun at who first, tells me that both of them are cowards. Perez should either go to jail for the rest of his life or be put to death, and Sanchez most likely got what he deserved as well.

OK I agree with you if it were true that Ben was abusing Paloma. TRuth of the matter is Ben never abused her this is all the cove up story for setting Ben up to be murdered. Theresa and Pelon have hated Ben for a long long time and they knew exactly what they were doing.
