    getting shot in the back must be the way to go these days. Noone deserves this. these young men COULD HAVE BEEN upstanding in their youth but as adults fell off course HARD. Yes i am glad they are off the streets but remember that there are some to follow ,picking up these terrible habits not only in this county but surrounding counties. 5/14/2011 i lost a love one at the hands of some young man who was surrounded by crime and violence in his youth. I pray for thefamily, for one day they will also mourn a death.

    I think it is shame that this had to happen. We need to look at the boys families and ask them how they let their children get this far.

    I cant express how glad I am that these FOOLs have been arrested. They should get the death penality, who really shoots someone in the back. An innocent man lost his life because these low lifes have nothing better to do with theres. It a shame!!! I hope and pray they get what they deserve, and for any of you that want to take up for them you can go to H**l with them!!!
