He didn't have to die for what he did, they clearly said TRIED to break in he didn't.No one deserves to die it doesn't matter if he was right or wrong.You people clearly have nothing better to do talking about someone who passed away.You people are clearly racist or w/e black people and monkeys are different and every black person isn't a thug or gangsta.There are alot of black successful people out here.

So true Kayla. It was "sad" the other POS did not get blown away too. Glad the little bastard is dead, guess Smith and Wesson knocked this little punk ass bitch the F out! Lol! Guess he won't be attacking innocent people anymore. His illiterate mammy, or whoever the hell was "raising" him, be cryin' now cause she lost some of her welfare, food stamps, and Section 8 monies. Good riddance. Foul little dirty prick.

what you typed isn't a sentence, verbs aren't all interchangable, and key words to make it mean anythng are completely missing, you sound like a foreigner who has english as a poor second langauge. The punk was a violent scumbag, you claiming "he no be" doesn't mean HE WASN'T rotten, it means YOU ARE a scumbag too, one who thinks beatikng old ladies for fun doesn't make a person bad. You should be shot to scumbag. "He WAS(not "be", that would mean he still IS, and would still be WRONG(stupid), it should read(to be language and make any sense to humans with a brain) "he WAS a baby, who WAS not TOO(or were there 2 of him, scumbag) bad", so "he was a baby who was not too bad" is correct, what you posted is gibberish, that's why you're unemployed and steal and deal drugs too. Scumbag.

more nonsense. You've missused the word going. Gone and going are not synonymous(they don't mean the same thing). If you are "gone miss you", YOU are already gone, and you miss him. I believe what you MEANT(but failed to know how to write correctly) is that you are GOING to miss him. Its one thing to use slang and accents that sound totally foreign, its a whole other to spell your misinterpretations of our language in writing. Also, if you knew this scumbag you knew he was a violent punk who hurt people for fun, so you must be a scumbag too. Thank god he's dead, I certainly hope all his friends and family who knew what he was follow suit very soon.

more misspent language. What happenED happened. "Happen" and "happened" are NOT the same, happen means "take place", happenED means it ALREADY happened. Do you see now how screwed up the meaning of EVERYthing you people mispronounce is NOT understandable? When you use the wrong form or tense of a word you change the ENTIRE meaning of your sentence. Now, to address the issue; no, you're correct, what happened DIDN'T need to happen, not him beating innocent people, not him robbing houses, not him no doubt robbing cars, NONE of THAT EVER NEEDED TO HAPPEN. THIS, however(him getting shot dead), certainly DID need to happen, for the old lady to protect her property, her own physical wellbeing(because we already KNOW what the scumbag liked to do to little old ladies), and for THE GOOD OF MANKIND, especially in stl. Thank god he's dead, I hope you follow soon for thinking he deserved to live the way he was(a violent scumbag)

clearly, bleeding heart, he DID deserve to die, or god wouldn't have sent his violent scumbag ass to rob an armed little old lady instead of ANOTHER unarmed one. We aren't wishing EVERY black person dead, only the ones who pull this crap, and ALL the ones who think he deserved to go on robbing, and beating, and for all we know KILLING, OTHER people who DIDN'T commit violent crime, for fun(because he DID beat people, white people exclusively, for fun, so THERE'S the core of the racism you're on about) and profit. Thank god he's dead. WE aren't racist, YOU are for thinking because he was black what he did didn't make him inherently EVIL.

He sure was an ugly little cuss too. Are those studs in his "teefs"? Somewhere several people will live long, happy, healthy lives because this little burgeoning criminal is dead. "He be NOT good", and burning in hell for all eternity.

guess what? im white and ill beat your asz when ever you are ready. but even if youare in stl you wont show. you are a coward behind a computer. lets see you say this crap to my face or someone that knew him.

when i was his age i did the same thing a couple diffrent times, not to hurt any one just to have fun and show out. R.I.P. from a white person who never met you and wont judge you for something stupid and you did at the age of 15.
Boo hoo for Demetrius

when i was his age i did the same thing a couple different times, not to hurt any one just to have fun and show out. R.I.P. from a white person who never met you and wont judge you for something stupid and you did at the age of 15.
STFU, you think you are all bad on the computer. You better watch it "whitey," or you will wind up just like that stupid little thug black boy. Getting your stupid azz shot. You ain't gonna beat anyone's azz if they have a gun. And why would you feel like people would need to say something to his family's face, no matter what he did, why rub salt in their wounds? That is just BS. If they asked my opinion, not that they would or care, i would tell them honestly TO THEIR FACE AND YOURS TOO what i thought. That he should have been home at that time of the night, and not out in some strangers backyard trying to break into someones house. His own mother said the SAME thing, and that he got mixed up with the wrong crowd, even his mama knew.(where was dad at?) However, why was she not taking care of him like most mothers AND fathers do and know where their 15 year old teenage kids are...I guess that was not high on her or his list of priorities. Black or white, you do something that dumb and stupid, you get what you got coming to ya. You reap what you sow. But i would not provoke someone out of sheer meanness, especially someone who just buried a family member. No matter what they did, even if they deserved what they got...and Demetrius deserved it to the nth degree. And you are lucky you did not try to pull that stupid crap with me when you were his age, cause i have had a conceal carry for going on 25 years now, and grew up with and shot guns even longer, and know very well how to use them and would have had no problems doing you like that man rightfully did to Demetrius Murphy. You live by the sword, you die by it. Maybe this will be a wake-up call to his thug friends. They better hope they don't pick an armed angry white or black man or woman, who refuse to become victims, and who are darn good shots. PS The police are not going to charge the homeowner either with anything! And rightfully so.

I've spent more than my share of time on the north side you halfwit, spent plenty of time with lots of scary brothers, and never did I know of any of them creating victims in their dealings, none of them had any respect for thieves or street punks. Never for a moment did I fear any of them, nor did I fear the trip to see them, or the derelicts like demetrious roaming the streets looking to make a name the most animalistic, primitive way possible. That should tell you something. This kid was on the hook for gang bashing random WHITE peoples faces in, he wasn't just some kid looking to swipe a ring for some new shoes, if he had gotten in anyone inside NOT armed would've been in peril of death, so don't spit "deserve" at me, he was a racist little monster. The only way I would face anyone who knew him and would be hammer back safety off, they had to know what he was about, and it wasn't normal 15 year old behavior in normal america, it was perfectly normal criminal behavior in stl. St louis is in suffering throes of violence from just this kind of behavior, the only way it'll stop is if the perps keep getting shot dead at as fast a rate as they're attcking innocent people. Nobody is changing how their kids die by letting them roam crime ridden streets alone or in gangs and ignoring the first low level crimes they commit. No kid with any conscience ignores a mothers plea to not get killed committing crime, no mother doesn't beg and cry if she cares. The only single person who has the right to love this kid despite his violence is his mother, who, if she did try and just couldn't beat the stl streets, I'm truly sorry for, I hope she finds a way through this, but I'm not going to bite my lip for political correctness. The rest, they contributed by defending his behavior despite his obvious criminal mindset and by not telling him they thought he was wrong and putting himself at risk. Being black didn't make it ok, being young didn't make it ok, being poor didn't make it ok, NOTHING makes bashing peoples face in on the street ok, EVER. Crying racism doesn't either, it just makes the defenders the racists they're crying about. Making excuses is feeding the crime, racist defense of blacks committing crime is begetting much more racism in response, blind defense of friends crimes makes you an accomplice, and morally bankrupt. Just once I would like to see a black person say of another black person shot in the act that they were just rotten and had it coming. Yes, I suppose st louis news brings a racist response from me.
