    I remember back in the day when disputes were handled with fists. Not that I'm condoning violence, but both people walked away, alive, to maybe become friends down the road. Now, we just kill each other because of what? A look, a gang affiliation, a girl? How do you decide who lives or dies? They'll be found soon and locked away forever!

    My comment was 100% sarcastic and was in response to the several people on these boards to claim the illegal, unregistered guns are "irrelevant" and only a problem because we allow law-abiding citizens to own guns. They want to ban all guns so there would be none for the criminals to steal. Mind-boggling logic to punish responsible gun owners.

    I hope they find them soon. I know the man's brother they shot personally. This whole situation is horrible.

    Well clearly not law-abiding if they murdered someone. And if that is the case how would you make the law tighter? Make it more illegal to murder people?

    I'm sure the 60 days they get in prison will totally rehabilitate them. Ready to become a productive society member!

    tats on the face - not sure if people ever think 'one day I might grow out of this'.

    They probably didn't know any better.

    I guess they were keeping it real.

    Like Durham, we need a panel to see if there was a racial bias here. This stinks of police corruption and racism. (sarcasm button off)
