JEVORNE VALENTINE

I CAN'T BELIEVE SOMBODY WOULD DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HIM. HE WAS'T IN A GANG. HE JUST DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO TO SURVIVE. IF YOU DON'T KNOW HIM,DON'T JUDGE HIM. HE WAS A GOOD PERSON WITH A GOOD HEART. I MISS HIM AND I LOVE HIM. HOPEFULLY THE POLICE WOULD FIND THE BASTARDS THAT KILLED HIM.

THIS MESS HAS TO STOP.... WE

THIS MESS HAS TO STOP.... WE DON'T KNOW IF HE WAS A GANG MEMBER, WE DO KNOW HE WAS A BROTHER, HE WAS A FATHER, AND HE WAS A SON.... I PRAY MUCH FOR THE MOTHER HE LEAVES BEHIND AND HIS CHILD..... NOW THAT'S WHAT IS KNOW..... NONSENSE MUST STOP.....

The nonsense won't stop....

...until the entire community rejects criminal behavior as a viable career choice. In almost every case of these young Black men being gunned down, they have a record of recent criminal behavior, in most cases, felonious. As long as no one in the community "snitches," as long as fathers are away in prison themselves, as long as mothers do absolutely nothing when junior comes home at 3 AM carrying a gun, nothing is going to change. The police can't clean it up. Only the community can.

It Hurtz to agree with you

It Hurtz to agree with you but you're dead on with your comment. My people need to take a look at themselves and reevaluate what is acceptable behavior in the hood. Like George & Weezy I moved out of this kind of environment and never looked back. The neighborhood I live in now (mostly white) would never allow this kind of crap going on in their homes or neighborhood. The few black families that live here wouldn't tolerate this mess either. What I'm trying to say is, ain't nobody can clean up your own house but you, and if you're asking somebody from the outside to do it for you, you're just asking for trouble.

You took responsibility for your life and family

If you were smart enough to get out of that environment, then you simply prove what one of the more astute posters has stated on occasion: A man's true character and value are found not in the color of his skin, but in the strength of his backbone. You took responsibility for the quality of life you and your family face. So forget about what your White neighbors wouldn't tolerate, or what your Black neighbors wouldn't tolerate, what's important to note is that **YOU** wouldn't tolerate it, and in that regard, you are to be complimented and congratulated. Taking responsibility for your life and the lives of your children....can you imagine how our society would be if EVERYONE did that?

murdering

you know god dont like ungly what comes around goes around.but even if he was a drug dealer or in a gang there is nothing on this earth worth killing someone because if someone does something wrong they have to live with that and it will eat you up inside.people need to open their eyes there is other ways to till with a problem do like the old school if you can not take care of the problem by talking it over like grown up should then get in the ring and dook it out and cut that person lose and not have nothing to do with them just because they done you wrong dont give you the right to kill that person 2 wrongs dont make a right sounds like be people like that are being very childish and need to grow up.AND LEAVE THOSE DRUGS ALONE BECAUSE THERE KILLING ENOUGH PEOPLE NOW WE DONT NEED SHOTTING TO HELP KILL PEOPLE. you would not want your brother or sister mom or dad or your own child get killed why get out her and kill someone open your eyes get god in your life.make something of yourselfs beside gang bangers drug dealers or ever out shotting people.go back to school get into church get a job take care of your family and you can do it with out drugs we have one war going on were our people are getting shot and killed if you want to shot and kill go help or counrty fight.and leave or streets alone you want a war go over seas the drugs are killing our people enough people like this is the reson people trien to do right dont have rights you all out there shotting make the gun rights suck people like this need to grow up or be put away for life in a small brick sail no windows can not write no one nor even see no one to me people like that are nothing but punks we all are brothers and sisters in gods eye he says love one enother and thou shall not kill those are the type who are going to burn in hell when they go to meet their maker.

my dude

people need to get a life and quit judging others life...whatever my homey did the short while he was here doesn't make a difference..this man was murdered and that's what society and the police need to focus on instead of what this man was and how he lived his life...hope this ain't another statistic for us african americans..maybe we should all decide to step up and talk instead of being cowards and continue letting murderers walk free...something to think about...miss u studda...

However it goes,wether he was a gang member or not,he still is someones child,dad,brother,etc... & he will be missed. And it is sad to see that our black people are killing one another instead of trying to help each other.
