race should not be a issue

race should not be a issue nor how many kids he may have. The issue is a life was taken,a young life at that! We need to sit back and take a look at what is happenning, and as one try to make a better tomorrow for the children of the future.

WILL IT EVER END?

WHY IS IT THAT EVERYTIME A PERSON IS MURDERED THE MEDIA LOOKS TO HIS CRIMINAL RECORD AS A MEANS OF JUSTIFICATION. SO WHAT... MURDER IS NEVER JUSTIFIABLE BECAUSE MURDER IS WROND DESPITE WHO IT IS OR WHAT THEIR PAST IS. I AM A PROUD BLACK INTELLIGENT WOMAN AND I BET THAT THESE COMMENTS ARE COMING FROM THOSE OF ANOTHER RACE. GROW UP. THIS IS 2007. THE RACISM DAYS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DECEASED DECADES AGO. REST IN PEACE!

Intelligent?

Ok, not to pick on you but you put yourself out there. You write "THE RACISM DAYS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DECEASED DECADES AGO." You can't "decease" a verb. Intelligent huh. Also , take a look at what you are defending, straight out of the NH Co. Public Records Section (this is the condensed version)...... Arrest 9/6/2007 TRESPASS-SECOND DEGREE Arrest 10/9/2006 RESISTING ARREST/HINDER & ******* Arrest 10/9/2006 PROBATION VIOLATION, M Arrest 7/3/2006 POSSESS SCHEDULE II, F = Arrest 6/12/2006 TRESPASS-SECOND DEGREE, M Arrest 3/28/2006 ASSAULT ON A FEMALE ******** Arrest 3/28/2006 POSSESS SCHEDULE II Arrest 10/29/2005 A\ INFLICTING SERIOUS BODILY INJURY ******** Arrest 10/29/2005 ASSAULT ON A FEMALE ********* Arrest 10/29/2005 ASSAULT-POINT GUN ********* Arrest 10/29/2005 FAIL TO APPEAR/ FAILURE TO Arrest 5/2/2005 DAMAGE TO PERSONAL PROPERTY, Arrest 5/2/2005 CHILD ABUSE-MISD, M ARRESTEE ******* Arrest 5/2/2005 CHILD ABUSE-MISD, M ARRESTEE ********** Arrest 10/11/2004 FAIL TO APPEAR/ FAILURE TO Arrest 10/11/2004 LARCENY ALL OTHER, M Arrest 9/6/2003 ADW, M *********** Arrest 2/1/2003 POSSESS SCHEDULE VI, M Arrest 11/19/2002 COMMUNICATE THREATS, M Arrest 9/13/2002 ASSAULT ON LAW ENFORCEMENT ****** And for the record, Where in the article did it mention that race was a factor. Sounds like your intelligence is getting a little further ahead than your mouth. The only loss here is to his Kids and Family. Sad that it went down this way but if you play with fire long enough, well.......

Will crying wolf ever end?

Peoples' responses have nothing to do with the RACE of the decedent, but rather, his character. If you can't see that, then you've become totally accustomed and immune to criminal behavior; you accept it as the norm.

You are the only one here yelling RACISM!!!

And I quote "I AM A PROUD BLACK INTELLIGENT WOMAN AND I BET THAT THESE COMMENTS ARE COMING FROM THOSE OF ANOTHER RACE." To stop racism, start from within yourself. If you must judge, be discriminatory. Race is of color - Discrimination is of character. For example: We have THUGS of all races(color), but no matter the race(color), they are still a THUG (characterization). Often times criminal backgrounds can help in finding a suspect for the murder. Were there issues with others that sought to get revenge? Either way, no one deserves to be murdered.

It's not about race

We cheer just as loudly when a White criminal meets the end he should come to anticipate.

Who brought up race?

You are the only one bringing up race. A person's criminal history is very important. It goes to show a patern. We didn't say this person deserved to die, but what we are saying is he probably brought it upon himself. I think its sad, but funny, how a person can have a LONG criminal history and yet his family and friends will say he was a good kid with a good heart.

Is this the same Dywayne Simpson

Who was just released from jail in May? Who has an unbroken string of crimes going back to 2003? THAT Dywayne Simpson?

does it really matter if its

does it really matter if its Dywayne or not all that matters is a young man is dead leaving behind two children and a family. Just cause he had a record dosent justify his death

41 arrests, just in the city....

Yes it does matter. He was an no Angel. He was 21 with a 5year old kid? Get real people. No loss here except for the family and the Kids that have to grow up and emulate thier long gone father( I hate to call him that). ******ALL PUBLIC RECORD****** Arrests included...... Assault, Assault w/ a deadly weapon, Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer(!!!!!), Resisting Arrest, Assault by pointing a gun, Assault on a female(!!!!), Assault inflicting serious injury, Damage to property, Trespassing, Child Abuse(!!!!), Probation Violations(to many to count), Communicating Threats, Larceny, Drug Charges(several) I was no Angel either, sometimes I drank underage. Guess I couldn't hang with the "thug-life".

population control

hate it for his kids but at the rate he was having children he's probably lucky that he wasn't 35. there would of been 10 kids and 6 mothers weeping,not to say how many tax dollars the welfare system would be shucking out.

You are right, he probably

You are right, he probably didn't deserve to die. But let's not make him out to be a perfect child either. He's been arrested around 40 times, and he's only around 21.

does it matter

You're right, it doesn't "justify" his death...but it explains why it probably happened.
