    People blame the shooter, people blame the kids. You may blame Grand Theft Auto, no matter who’s the blame. If you look at it clearly, the real reason this kid is dead. Is cause of his actions alone. At 15yrs. old, at 1am. He should’ve been at home studying or sleeping. Everyone will voice their own opinion but the fact is. Had he been home, he may still be alive. NOW THAT’S A FACT.

    Do any of you know the whole story? No. For all any of you know he didn’t know the car was stolen. The point is a 15 year old KID lost his life due to someone else’s wreckless actions. Sad that y’all are more worried about judging a dead kid and his decisions than seeing that the ones at fault get the punishment they need. Then again most of you make comments behind a screen that none of you would have ever made to any of this kids family. So take a look at yourselves and figure out what kind of human you are. Because at the end of the day you can’t change what happened or bring him back by speaking down on him.

    Kids will be kids and sneak out. Ok, so they were up to no good, doesn’t bring any justification why a grown up felon would chase them and fire shots. A child lost his life over this crime. He should be alive and a court date.

    In this case, you cannot blame the parent of the child that was killed, because per his mother, he climbed out the window that night. Sometimes no matter how great a parent you are, some will go astray. It’s a sad day we are living in. Sadly, he cant take his decision back or get another chance this time.

    Probably on his way home from church, and just wanted a hug.

    Because they stole the car. How, because some dumb property owner thinks it safe to store your keys in a unlocked vehicle. Why, because their burglars, theirs and criminals.

    Why? because this world is going to hell in a hand basket and this is just one example of how screwed up things are these days with a child being dead.

    Why…….ask questions that you already know the answer to ?

    All The parents of these children should be held responsible for their child’s part in what occurred, if we don’t start holding parents accountable for what their children do, their children will continue to run the streets& thèse kinds of tragedies will continue to happen

    The west side of pensacola is dangerous and out of control prayers for the 15 year old who the victim’s family

  13. Why? on November 19th, 2019 5:37 pm

    Why………was a 15 year-old running around in a car at 1am?
    Why……… are people in the car only being “somewhat” cooperative?
    Why……… was the car abandoned somewhere else?
    Why……… do these people blame everyone BUT themselves for this type of behavior?
    I know why, do you? It’s quite obvious.
