    Random acts of violence happen all the time sadly here in our fair city that baby could have been sitting in my house as he often did and it could have been one of my children or urs for that matter but does that make it right or does that mean im guilty by association u people that arent directly effected shouldnt make assumptions about someone u dont know just for the sake of being heard u make urself look real ignorant. Guy i have ur back baby u will rest in peace and ur killer will be found. God is in control now and so it was wriiten and so it was done. Amen

    Umm....try again there liberal. Numerous studies over the past 20 years show that the fewer gun laws a city has, the lower the crime. I mean, just look at Chicago for example. The most gun laws in the nation, and the most crime. Blame that on your illustrious false prophet and his community organizer cronies.

You are not just killing one person,you are killing others family and friends,when you take the life of one of their friends or loved ones.

    your kidding me right??? All we know is this young man was an un-armed victim of a home invasion. If he were armed the story might be different, home owner shoots/kills home invader...

    Geosol: Having a gun does not mean your life will automatically be spared, and there is never an honor in taking anyone's life.

    Wildcat: how can you make that statement about the young man when you have no facts leading up to the shooting? People are murdered everyday with no reason behind it.

  • geosol Oct 20, 2011

    Now see, if only more people had more guns this kind of thing would just magically stop happening!!

    My condolences to the family and many friends. May God bring comfort to all of you in the days ahead and peace. May you all see justice served. When found this killer should get life in prison without parole. Someone out there knows who kill this young man. You are just as guilty if you don't speak up. Do the right thing and report to the police now.
