The Teens in BH need to understand that their actions throughout the city make ppl act, then think. Teens walk in front of cars daring you to get to close to them, Curse continuously no matter whos around, Fight, Shoot at you, Jump you, Dont listen to adults, fight adults, DISRESPECT ANY AUTHORITY FIGURE and now everybody want to know what happen. If these kids stay in school, go home and do their home work and stay in a kids place instead of trying to be like Bun B or Master P then BH would be a much better place. The teens are making you think I better act first because I don't know what their intentions are. Be for real with the situations thats happening in Benton Harbor with teens I am surprised situations like this doesnt happen more often. The teens in BH have gone crazy. Not all but alot have.

I truly feel for the Napier family and what happened to Corey. I know his dad and I also know the individual who shot him. Everyone in BH knows that the individual who shot him is not a violent guy. He haven't even been in a fight before. That's hard to not do in BH. It's sad because there has been some real gruesome murders lately in BH. Zapp was robbed and killed, Rodriguez and his whole family. People are on edge in their own homes. Keep ya head up BH.

A man has the right to defend his castle against criminals. When your a criminal the odds are, you will die violently. He should have been in school!

He should have been in school (You to looking at your grammar and spelling) and not on his own field trip "101 B&E" (Braking and Entering) of which he Failed. When someone is braking into your house, you don’t have time to ask him if he’s “Carrying a gun”!

Benton Harbor was once a beautiful city, since 1960s it became a junk yard and drug hall with the loss of humanity.

I live in Benton Harbor - and I've had my house broken into a lot. I lost a laptop last weekend.

This wasn't something that the police could have handled; do you expect the kids to stick around and wait for the police to show up? How long does it take to run a block back to school?

Crime is too acceptable around here; we need to show kids that the way to make money is by going to school, not robbing their neighbors.
