    treyquan: sorry, but, bottom line, he was wrong for what he did. totally. and he will suffer the consequences. If his parents "knew this was going to happen" then they need to know how to give better guidance. Same words for you, you seem to have seen it coming too.

    I still say capital punishment with a 2 year limit on appeals. No feeling sorry, no blaming the parents, school or society. No more taxpayer money wasted, and I do mean wasted, on theses thugs sitting in jail learning new thug tricks. How about some REAL consequences for crime? Maybe when these thug morons and their parents see that if you kill you will be put to death they’ll get a clue. It is jut too easy now to try and get away with it. No feeling sorry from me and many others I’m sure.

    Julia, Iam neutral, I see things as they are, not how I want them to be. In America, we put a fancy catch phrase on every problem. This particuliar problem, people shooting each other, takes place everyday in America. We hang a those phrases on the issues, such as "its a gang problem" when its really a culture problem. Its a poverty/crime issue when we know that's not true. The state of WV has the highest poverty rate in the nation and yet has the lowest crime rate. We treat the symptom but never the problem. Its a gun problem, and in DC any gun is totally illegal and they lead the nation in gun related homocides. In Wyoming just about everyone carries a gun and a homocide is almost unheard of.

    i heard the parents were good parents of the boy who got shot, i agree that you can be a good parent and your kid go astray, my son has friends i don't like at all, one day one of them will be in prison, bet money on it but he is young and dumb and thinks i'm the most stupid thing he has ever heard. lets face it, they will find a way to do what they want no matter high tight the rein is.

    YARIGHT- KEY WORD WAS "HE HAD" AN OPPURTUNITY TO PLAY BALL, CLEARLY HE LET THAT DREAM GO A FEW YEARS AGO.

    THE POINT I AM MAKING IS PARENTS CAN NOT ALWAYS BE TO BLAME. I BELIEVE IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO TEACH CHILDREN THAT IN LIFE YOU MUST FACE CONSEQUENCES, AND I ALSO THINK THAT IT IS VERY IGNORANT FOR ANYONE TO ASSUME THAT NEITHER ONE OF THESE PARENTS DID THERE PART. I CAN'T SPEAK OF 1000 OTHER CHILDREN BUT I PERSONALLY KNOW THE PARENTS OF THIS VICTIM!

    Julia: If this kid was any good at basket ball he should have been drafted years ago not running around shooting people, Your not getting it Kids today are not directed in what is wrong and what is right, if some one steals your car you call police, if some one steals your wife you move on, if some one takes your job you get more education and get a better job these are the right things to do but No No No these people decide to shoot at each other fine by me there is the right system and then there is there system. There system comes with a pine box or concrete walls and a cell mate.

    NEUTRAL OBSERVER - THAT SCREEN NAME DOESN'T FIT YOU AT ALL.

    I LIVED BESIDE THE VICTIM AS HE WAS GROWING UP, AND HE WAS RAISED TO KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG. FACE IT SOME CHILDREN GO ASTRAY. HIS MOTHER IS A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN AND HIS FATHER IS A VERY REPUTABLE BUSINESS MAN IN THIS COMMUNITY. IT IS TRAGIC WHAT HAS HAPPENED AND THE SHOOTER HAD AN INCREDIBLE CHANCE AT REALLY GOING SOMEWHERE PLAYING BASKETBALL.

    IT IS TRAGIC BUT THIS TYPE OF VIOLENCE HAPPENS ALL THE TIME, IT BLACK, WHITE, AND HISPANIC COMMUNITIES. THIS SHOULD BE EVERYONE'S PROBLEMS, INCLUDING REPUBLICANS.

    treyqwan, if that's the case, there should have been some SERIOUS consequences for the first shooting. If there was serious consequences there would be civil rights organizations screaming about harsh punishment. When one kills the other the same civil right groups are screaming that nothing was done to prevent this tragedy. These groups need to join the prevention cause and quit being part of the problem. One man is dead and the others life is ruined. This same senario is being played out in the streets of America as we speak. What do you think the solution is? The only solution is for people to change their behavior. There is no goverment program or enough money to change this behavior. The federal government has fed this very lifestyle for years. This lifestyle breeds, murder, drugs and many other crimes. If people want to shoot and be violent, we should give them violence that they do not want. Something bigger and badder than their wildest dreams.

    Treyqwan: This is not a jab with out a clue this is reality What ever happened to being the bigger man and walking away, let old wounds heal but O no, people feel they can be the law and take maters in to there own hands and these are the results of little thugs acting out like they are adults, no one can get me, I'm the man, with out a clue of the consequences..... theives and thugs always got there hands in other peoples pockets never keeping to them selves if there not tacking what doesn't belong to then they are taking some ones life...No Mercy for the criminals, act like one be treated like one. You want to walk around in society job less and think you own the world then have fun living under a bridge and get shot at...better yet why don't they get an education and prove to there parents and siblings that there is more to life than living off the system. Now the system they broke will take care of him. lock him up for good.

    Let me first start by saying my sympathy goes out to the one's who lost their son.
    I can start by saying after reading these comments that no one here had no knowledge of the history of this death. These two had been going at each other since they were in the 10th or 11th grade. Time was in disguise to when this was going to happen. Both sides referring to families knew that there sons was basically targeted to this happening one day. Unfortunately the one that survive the last shooting end up being what we see here being call a muderer. Oh yeah that right the last shooting that just recently occurred that you first 15 readers have no clue of. The deceased( not mentioning name) fired upon the accused on plenty occasions and one weeks ago. It is wrong for what he did.. but not totally. I hate to be the spoiler but i hate seeing comments from individuals who pop up on this blog and jab with the mouth without a clue.
