Nothing will change until these kids realize that the gang life is not what they need. Oh yes, these people make you feel welcome and treat you like family, until you try to leave, and then you are dead. I feel for the family of this young man. He was a son, a brother, a human being, regardless of his choices. It is a shame when anyone dies, especially this young.
With all that being said, he chose this life. When you live by the sword, you will die by the sword. He chose to hang with those who think it is okay to hurt or kill others and he paid the ultimate price with his life. His bad decision did not end well.
As for all the nasty comments made, why? Regardless of what he did or who he was, after all, he was a human being. Keep that in mind, because we never know when it could strike a family member or a friend.
