Mark my words.

There will be a movie

NY To PR diaspora economic underclass story on so many levels.

There will be a treatment set up soon to write a story on this guys life, if its no already in the works.

He has the gutter to glory story and all the way back to where he started.

He was a charismatic, master showman.

Born in PR.

Raised in Spanish Harlem.

Troubled as a youth.

Boxing was an outlet

His ascendency in boxing and GREAT career with all the titles ,in spite, of all the twists and turns along the way that is anatural part of the lufe process.

HIS SUPER FIGHTS WITH DURAN AND LEAONARD.

His tons of woman.

His run-ins with the law when he encountered hard times

His drive to get back in the game even at 50;

His return to Puerto Rico

His tragic end and all the family drama and PR finally coming recognize one of her son's.

HE HAS THE STORY!!!!

I hope his young son plays him as a young fighter.

Perhaps, any monetary proceeds from some of the points on this movie can contribute toward his kids future welfare.

As both a man who admits when he is wrong and the gentelman that i often try to be. I must say this comment of mine was highly inappropiate and uncalled for.

In all honesty. I believe at the time, i was a bit frustrated that the clock was ticking down and the chances were growing less and less dim that Mr Camacho's organs could harvested for someone who could surely use them.

I just thought it was an uneccessary delay. But, being a father myself. I'm sure that if i were ever in that position. My kids would ,too, want to say a last goodbye.

As the situation stands. I do not believe that ALL 3 of his kids were able to be there in time, after all.

I believe it is of the "utmost importance" to have a medical directive explicitly stating one's wishes, if they were to suddenly be in an unfortunate position as was that of the late Mr Camacho.

Te digo mas la prensa de PR tiene 0 sensibilidad
como es posible que ahora se esten quejando que si la familia tardo mucho y ahora no se pueden donar los organos, yo se que hay otros enfermos pero no es facil para una familia perder a alguien y verlo entubado. Hacen lo que sea por el rating :-(

This is very true.

This whole ongoing saga regarding the Camacho organ donor controversy has been eye opener for me as well as point of discussion within my home.

I researched just a bit online. Apparently, doctors and specialists may try to pressure families who may be under tremendous emotional duress to donate the fatally injured family members organs. One cannot fault his family for not having knowledge at their disposal regarding this critical procedure. Organ donation is still a relatively new procedure. Hispanic and blacks in the USA generally do not donate as much their white counterparts. Make of that what you will.

Here in the state of New York, one can opt to donate their organs by simply checking off of a box on their renewal license application.(I am not sure regarding the other states. I would imagine similar procedures are followed).. It will then state on your license if you are a donor or not.

I was under the impression that Mr Camacho was NY state resident. Perhaps not. Or maybe he didn't even have any present day state license to drive.

On thing is certain. There need to be greater public awareness regarding this critical issue. Hopefully, some good could come out of this in Puerto Rico to heighten the awareness of the public to this often sensitive and delicate topic. Especially among the populace who have had less access to higher education

I agree with you on this. The bottom line was that he did NOT donate the organs. It was a lost opportunity. So, we should take the lessons we learned and move on from this.

Como se deci "Se te fue la mano" y por eso eres un "gentelman" de NY, pero como yo soy una rata de mierda ,pienso que lo mejor que su familia podia ser es donar sus órganos.

La verdad es que no hay muchos hispanos que hacen eso y olvidate de los negros americanos .

Yes, in NY you simply mark the back of your drivers license , think now when you renew your license they ask you but in the south como FloriDUH, They do not offer that on your license and doubt they ever will because for many of these so called southern Christian conservatives "It is better to take than to give".

You posted it yourself; Hispanic and Black minorities in the US have way less access to higher education.
Again....It is up to the individual.
