    Answer this, daMoFo...What has Rev. Jesse and Duke Lacrosse got to do with this story about one brother stabbing the other? Get a life and stop trying to relate everything to the Duke Lacrosse case. That's over now, so stop beating a dead horse. Some of the folks who post on here sure can be ignorant, huh?

    What is our society coming to?? Families fighting with each other, neighbors fighting with each other. The trumpet sounding must be near. Be ready.

    Police did not disclose the names or specific ages but DID HOWEVER publish the address. How hard is it now to find out who they are????

    It doesn't matter what part of town they're in, or their race or their mother's marital status. Perfectly wonderful children grow up with these constraints.

    But the crux of this story is the sadness. Praying for both of these children.

    God bless.

    This is sad.

    It takes two to fight but only one to stab. Will Reverand Jesse come to blame it on the Duke lacrosse team?

    What does the bad part of town have to do with anything. I have plenty of students that are not from the best part of town and normally do not fight each other - I will tell you this if you mess with one of the family members you have a fight on your hand from all of the family members. There are also kids from the right side of town that no longer have any dealings with their families.

    Wanttobehonest...I agree!!! We grew up always hug and kiss each other hello and good-bye because you don't know if it will be the last time you will see them...you don't want the last words remember as hatred.

    I always told my kids that it takes two to fight...if one walks away then the other has no one to fight with.
