    First of all, why is a 16-year old carrying a gun? Second, what in the world goes on in his head while he points the gun at two different people and shoot it off? Is there no thought like, "hey, what am I doing?" The fact is, this wide spread lack of remorse and empathy, self-respect and respect for others, being able to distinguish between right and wrong and be accountable, start in toddler age, and if not taught is considered parental/adult neglect. It is called teaching social responsibilities by competent parenting. I think kids thrive and develop best in a environment where there are limits and directions, patience, interaction, structure, and consistent parental control and involvement. It is a tough one....Something to consider when having babies.

    This picture was taking before his arrest. This look like a regular pic to me. And Wilma how do you know this mother does not work? Why assume she gets a check? One day people are going to keep assuming other people gets checks they are going to start receiving a check. Then everyone is going to be talking about them.

    16 years old, and look how proud he is of his accomplishments.......is it no wonder that everyone under the age of 21 is stereotyped? But I'm SURE he has come from a broken home, momma only gets a check every month, and he had to do something to take up his time.....right??? What a waste of a human being.

    I believe you are right; I just misread it. I do apologize. I don't want to say it makes it better that they aren't related because it doesn't. Two people have still been seriously injured and it could have been avoided. I'm just glad that he turned himself in and is now off the streets.

    Woah...he was a student in my class for a short time...it is a shame that he has resorted to violence, and attempted murder. off the streets is best for this young man.
