Gotta love those single mothers! Ms. Burgess, Aramis' mom, sees him with an illegal handgun pointed at his dad, and tells him to put it back in his room. What's wrong with this woman, when she is still with a man who beat two of her kids years ago? No wonder her son is also a loser.

I wonder if the old man was abusive to the son when younger. This might explain all of the gun shots. Sad story non the less.

Mind your own business. These posts give more information than the article does. Stick with something you know about: pig poop.

the woman had a weapon and the son had a weapon and they killed a father who had left unarmed...something missing here. Murder is the verdict.

The mother told the son to put the gun away? Not "where the hell did you get that?" What's up with these people? This is a normal thing for the kid to be hiding a gun in his bedroom?

Sounds like you should have gotten to have known him better...like close enough to smell the tip of his illegal handgun!

I'll bet you're an upstanding citizen just like your "bro".

What Happiness hit it right on the head - Another All-American family supported by the working family tax dollars. And yes Jeff T. what do you think he was being robbed of - oh I can only imagine. It was probably Aramis doing the robbing and came away with the gun. All these thugs need a education and life.

Surprised they are charging anyone with anything.

Usually when someone shoots a male, its not considered a crime.

Who are you, to comment on anyones intelligence? This wouldn't happen in a family that has law abiding members!
Lewd Leftists, like you, who feel sorry for parents who abdicate every responsibility, and coddling criminal behavior, have made our inner cities lethal places to live.

I AM A LEFTIST! And I say, "you reap what you sow."

But it's always good to see fathers and sons doing things together...like getting a "mine and yours" mugshot!

But seriously, what a tragic waste of lives--both of them!
