My friend bought an M-16 at the gun show this past weekend at the Fair Grounds. He didn't have to show any ID or pass any background checks. He is a responsible citizen, but seriously, that is messed up.

I do not understand how these people live. What I consider noraml to my family is not normal to others. If you are involved in guns, drugs, this may be a normal way of life for some. I am not involved with this type of life so I don't know.
I do know this, People are always looking to score a quick dollar with little effort.

Black, white , green or yellow. These kids did not deserve to die. Bad people do bad things.

they will find these people just give it time...

I will tell you something. Everyone (whites) in this city think that all the drugs and all the crimes are committed by the black community in these city. This is far from true. Yes, drugs are dealt on the Eastside, but they are also dealt on every side of town. The cars that pull up ot buy them? Most have 41,29,30 or 32 prefix plates on them. Those are addicts from the burbs!
This is a crime of the highest evil, dont blame the victims based on the choices of someone else or thier skin color.
Did you notice that the OP did not mention or elude to race, but rather the lifestyle that these particular people led? You not only did, but made the generalization that all white people think all black people are drug dealers. The OP did not say that the babies were to blame but that it was a shame that their mothers led a dangerous lifestyle that unfortunately led to their death. Between the person you replied to and you, YOU are the only racist one. Quit blaming all white people for the choices that some black people make. Personal choice and responsibility spans all nationalities/gender/race/reli gion.

Regardless if we believe the parents put the children in harms way, its deplorable that anyone would kill a child. Most of you are missing the point, children were killed. Who gives a rats hairy butt if we believe the people were "good" or "bad". Innocent children were murdered in cold blood.

I just do not understand this city and the violence that is occuring. After 40 years of living here I am really thinking about moving. These poor women and children gunned down in their own home. My Lord what is going to occure when the warmer months get here. I am afraid to walk down my own street now days. To the family I will keep you in my prayers.
I still think as long as you are not dealing drugs out of your house you are pretty safe in Indy. All of the murders that occur in Indy have a similar theme...drug involvement.

This story makes me sick to my stomach. How in the world have we as a society lowered to such a level as to shoot two tiny babies "multiple times in the head and body" according to this report? It is also unbelievable to see two young mothers gunned down as well. Drugs or not, this is incomprehensible!! I don't care what color or creed the victims are, they didn't deserve this. I pray that whomever did this will be caught and be given the harshest punishment possible. These criminals are worse than animals. My condolences and prayers go out to all family and friends of the victims.

If and when they catch the people responsible for killing babies, take them out in PUBLIC and shoot them!!!!!!!!!! Maybe the moms did something wrong but babies have no choice. The people responsible have NO RIGHT TO LIVE!!!!!!!!

This recent homicide has taken the lives of four people. This type of violence is unacceptable. We as a community have to stand up and protect our next generation or we will not have one. Educators, government officials, and yes our new mayor, please take heed before a whole generation is lost. Create programs for our youth, and increase funding in our school systems. Drug dealing and homicide go hand and hand, but is a direct result of society that has forgotten about our youth, and the media (myspace, MTV, BET), has taken them under their wings and now our youth is lost. Four lives gone, how many more. Wake up people and help raise, guide, nuture, and love our youth. IN JESUS NAME!!!
We have created programs after programs for this type of behavior in our youth. We have spent millions on education. Until we show that we are serious about crime and educate these people to the fact that they will pay for their crimes, the rate will climb.

Until parents gets control of their children or even pay attention to what their teens on doing on the streets, the crime rate will continue to climb.

Until we show that a crime such as this magnitude gets the death penalty the crime rate will climb. Just as a little child are taught in the home that behavior will not be tolerated, crime rate will continue in this city.

I doubt your friend purchased an M-16. That is the fully automatic military version of a weapon and it is illegal to sell it and own it without a permit. If this is true you should call ATF and report it.

Yes, they were at the wrong place at the wrong time, but whose fault was that other than their own. Those poor babies could have lived if only their mothers would have refused to be a part of that lifestyle. Whoever actually turned the gun on them is responsible for their deaths, but the mothers' negligence pretty much placed their children right in front of those guns.

FBI, STATE AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES GOT INVOLVED. WOULD ANYONE AGREE THAT THIS NEED TO GET NATIONAL ATTENTION? PLEASE GET THE POLITICIANS INVOLVED AND THE CITY ADMINSTRATION TOO. WE AS A PEOPLE HAVE TO STAND UP FOR REDUCTION IN CRIME AND TO HAVE PEOPLE START GOING BACK TO THE NIEGBORHOOD WATCH 24/ 7 AS WELL AS ARMING OURSELVES TO PROTECT OUR NIEGBORHOOD, FAMILY AND HOME. BUT SOME PEOPLE WON'T CARE AND WANT TO SPEW RACIST COMMENT ON THIS SITE INSTEAD OF COMMING UP WITH IDEALS. THE CITY ADMINSTRATION IS PATHETIC AND BALLARD WILL BE A TARGET FOR THIS HERE.

Up to this point I haven't read a racist comment. I was going to say something just like the original message that you replied to. Everyone here seems to have the same opinion. It isn't the babies' fault. It is their mother's. For putting those babies in an obvious drug dealing situation. The 'boyfriend' is 55 years old. The girlfriend 24. That and him being in prison for DRUG charges... HELLO! Does not take a genius. And for real, the boyfriend. Just cause you are in prison, or work-release, or whatever doesn't mean you don't have people (a dumb young girl) doing your dirty work. This is just all so sick.
