    I wish people would leave all these negative comments away! It is very sad to see people loosing their lives. Crimes are crimes stop judging. Selling drugs, assault, robbery, murder, etc.. its still a crime. It happens everyday. Im sure someway somehow we have all committed one. Some may been caught some may have not been caught. O well. Please the negativity away. The family would really appreciate it. My heart goes out the Darius' family! Keep your head up!

      Your response is EXACTLY what's wrong with some people today. "Crimes are crimes"? That indifferent attitude is a prime example of why we're where we are today. The attitude of most law-abiding, taxpaying citizens toward the people who are killed while involved in a crime has become just as flippant as your attitude toward the crimes themselves. No morals, NO SHAME for anything that you do. I've never even come close to committing ANY of those crimes and certainly wouldn't consider them to be "just crimes". I am very sorry to hear that a young man lost his life, but had he not been where he was he would still be alive. WHAT is it going to take for it to stop??

      "Selling drugs, assault, robbery, murder, etc.. its still a crime. It happens everyday. Im sure someway somehow we have all committed one. Some may been caught some may have not been caught" - your acceptance that crime is not a big deal is the problem with our country today. No, we don't all commit crime. I can honestly say that no one in my immediate family has done as much as steal a candy bar. Unreal; time to re-evalaute your friends & family if this is what you truly believe.

    Who are we to judge? We are the citizens fed up with these thugs going around killing, robbing, dealing, and stealing! We can judge if we want to! Who are YOU to tell us what we can and cannot do? Before you go telling folks who we can and cannot judge, go get your offspring off the streets!

    This kid was dealing with his own demons and who are we to judge? If he was consumed by his love of prosperity, he is no different than the Wall Street Bankers who prey on innocent victims. I sincerely hope this individual has left an impact on his peers. I pray he did not die in vain. Every life is precious, every life has meaning. God bless him and his loved ones.
