Thank you for your comfort. Yes, I too am glad that they have been caught this incident should send a message to other families. These boys were cowards they got into a fight and lost. They thought about what they did, they left the scene and went to get guns. Instead of being men and realizing they got beat up. They came back with the intent to kill someone. You do not use a gun to scare anybody. I read an article where the family members of Burkett cried, however their tears are unjustifable. Aaron McAdoo can never be seen by his family again they can never hear him laugh or talk. So who is really crying. The Burkett family is crying because he is in jail where they can visit and talk to him. Aaron McAdoo an innocent young man with his whole life ahead of him was killed because of Brukett's inconsiderable actions. He is a coward and a punk and should spend the rest of his life in misery. Because I will missing my son.

I spent Easter Sunday at my son's grave crying and laughing at the same time. This is a nightmare that I can not wake up from. Everytime I read that that Burkett's family cried for him. I wonder what do they have to cry about. His mother and father should have raised him and kept an eye on him and who he hung around. They should have instilled some morals and values in him as a man, that he has no right to take a life. He should have been taught to be a man and not a coward, that if he fought someone then let it go if you loose. His life is not over by my son's is and so is a part of mine. I love my children, my son Aaron was a giant part of our lives we have a family bond that no one could break. Burkett and Sam evidently did not have this or they did not value it. I heard that one of the mothers said that she had so many problems with her son that she washed her hands with him. How do you wash your hands with your own child. If he was that much of a problem she should have had him locked up not let him out on the streets to kill like he did. God does not like ugly and that they hurt and pain that these two young punks have caused my family will be with them and their families forever. If any of their mothers are crying tears imagine what I am feeling. They can't

I feel that each mother that is involved in this tragedy needs to get together and pray for all of those boys that was involved. Prayer changes things and they will all be in my prayers and God bless them all.

well i was a friend of Aarons and actually wanted to attend the funeral but wasn't informed of it until the morning of.I am very sorry for your loss and he will def. be missed.I am curious to know where it is that he's burried? Again i am sorry for your loss and hope that these three boys do go for their full amount of time.I actually knew one of them and to be honest don't feel sorry for any of them at all. They knew the chances of what they were doing when they picked up the gun and i hope they do get what they deserve.

I am very sorry for your lose n all u have to do is keep a strong mind.I know for a fact that one ofthe mothers feels your pain. I lost my little sister last year and yes it is hard to deal with but these are the things that make people great ppl. so all the advice i can give you mrs. is to keep your head high and tears low. put all fears to the side and go at the things u want at your full potential. dont let a day come over you where you doubt or look down on yourself because that is not what he would want.As the pastor told me last year he is with god now n in a better place. out of this world of hatred, hurt aND sorrow.Occurincies like this that happen do hurt the heart but it makes a family come as one and makes them stronger.God pls have great grace on this family because i know how they feel.. i am only 18 and lost 6 ppl in the last yr of 06 to death.And have mercy on jamal brandon and anthony's souls. i know these 3 men and they are not cowards & would never wish death upon no one but accidents and dumb decisions do occur.N if the lord wasnt callin aaron the actions on that date would not have occured. AAron passed on the 1 yr anniversary of my sisters death.So pls stay strong 4 your family

I would like to send my deepest sorrows to all of the families involved, especially the mothers. This was a senseless crime and there are 4 lives that have been taken here. I will pray for all involved and I hope we all realize that the three lives that are on the line will not bring the lost one back. Vengence is the Lords and if you read and understand the bible, you will know that God is a forgiving God and only He can pass judgement. God bless and keep you all in His care, in His arms and in His will.

Nina I too believ in the lord with all my heart and soul. And to be honest with you I dreamed that this was going to happen to Aaron 3 months ago. I told him about it. I knew that his death would end in a shooting the lord showed me so that I would be prepared. I have already forgiven these three young men, however, their negligence and stupidity is not forgotten. It is not just the fact that my son was killed recklessly, however it is the fact that the other houses they shot at had babies in them. And that they had no concern for life at all. I know it was time for my son god has shown me all that and has put a peace in my soul and heart that no one around me understands. I thank him constantly for the 21 years he let me borrow Aaron, but I too am human and it hurts. Not just for Aaorn but my family and all that we miss. You see I did not just raise kids, I raised a family a bond a unit and there was so much love (still is) around us. You had to know our family to feel what I am feeling and until you actually loose a child , no matter how much I believe and trust in the lord I still have hurt some emptiness in my heart and life. However, I do know that God does not make misatkes. And my son it fine and at peace.

Thank you for your input, however, your friends are cowards and punks, they followed a young man home to fight him, when they got there they were beat up, they left and intentionally went back got a gun, and went to shoot at this young and his family. Instead they killed my son. When you instigate a fight and loose take your a** whoopin like a man. Instead they Brandon and Jamal came back to shoot and kill. Not caring for anyone else's life in the area. Brandon drove while Jamal intentionally shot his gun out the window. So 18 and hurtin if he was not a coward they would have went to the person and shot them face to face. So your statement about not wishing death on anyone...... is a total mistake those boys laughed when they finished shooting and was happy saying "they got one off" the only time they showed any remorse was when they found out they could do life in prison. Everyday I wake up and ask god for strength. I know that you have lost family members but have you lost a child. If not until you do, you will never know the hurt I feel. I have a lot of forgiveness in my heart - God would not have it anyother way. I can not forget. I know you probably think that your friends meant no harm. But if it was your child how would you feel then?

I want to offer my condolences to the family of Aaron McAdoo. I went to Romulus High with Aaron. I did not know him very well but I did know the kind of person he was, a very good one.

I just wanted to make a statement. I was in court yesterday for the preliminary hearing and it is so hard to sit and listen to your sonís name being said over and over. And not be able to look up at his face. My son Aaron McAdooís was loved by so many people that it is a shame that he is gone. I felt some anger yesterday for the first time. You see it was a month ago yesterday that I buried my son. My heart was hurt and heavy. My emotions were in a rage and My spirit was not a peace. But in the course of all of this each family talked to me and I too realize that they are hurting not like me, but hurting as well. They have to deal with what each of their children have done, not just to my family but too theirís as well. These boys have beautiful families who are standing by them, we have all been put in an awkward situation. When this first started it seemed that each family looked at me and my family as if we had done something wrong. But the truth is they didnít know what to say to us. As well as me not wanting them to say anything. My anger is not at any family because we are all in this together whether we like it or not. However my anger is at the actions of their sonís ..........Again, Aaron was a beautiful young man. And I am not just saying this because I am his mother, but because this what I know from raising him and what others have said and shown me. I love my son as I am sure that each one of these families loves theirs ......... the hatred is for their actions and the outcome. My son will always be a part of me and I have no regrets. I know that the lord only lets us borrow our children and he let me keep Aaron for 21 (happy loving years). I guess I am writing this to say to each person who sits in that court room on any day that you come to one of these hearing, donít have anything smart to day or negative, until you have actually walked in each of these mothers shoes, especially mine. As I was sitting there in court yesterday I actually witnessed people trying to have attitudes with me and my family, until I let them know that my son was the person that they killed. Then those people became humble. But you should always remain humble stop trying to be tough and hard, because it getís you no where. At a time like this there is no hard or tough people just victims.
