Gangs are harmful to the community. Get a life, get a job, and by all means get educated! Stop being so ignorant. You can't just free someone because they're your friends, or homies, as you call them.

By the way, this is not the place for you to express your gang loyalty. Send an email or text message...geez! This is a place for news, not for kids who don't have anything better to do.

The little punks can't even speak proper English. Hopefully they'll kill each other before another respectable person gets hurt.

Gang members are just cowards. They can't fight with their bare fists, 1 on 1 like the old days. They have to hit with metal pipes, shoot and stab people and attack in groups. Why? Because they think they are sooo big and bad. Reality is, they are small and spineless. A real man or woman does not take someones life for the fun of it, or beat someone for their ipod just because they want it. A real man or woman gets a job, takes care of themselves and their families the right way, by educating themselves and getting out of the crime life. I guess they all think they are invincible, until someone takes out one of theirs. Then they get angry and want to retaliate. Reality is, it was probably over something stupid in the first place. Gang members should take a long look at themselves inside and see where their real pain is coming from. Parents divoced? Dad in jail? Economically tough life? Then do something respectable about it. Get counseling, get an education, learn how to care about yourself enough to get out of that harmful, potentially devestating life.

I dont care what reason a gang member gives for killing if your that stupid to just hang out doing nothing with yourself and just waiting to get shot or shot at so you can pick up a gun and do the same thing to somebody else that's the most dumb and iggnorant shit i ever heard.Mabey it was a stage that people went through back in the day but to still be doing the same stupid shit today is just rediculous.

this time I am sure they're innocent. People seen this LDG shot Beniam what don't you understand he took someone's life and hurt other people, Can you not do something good for your life and be productive and not a problem to your Families?
People are not afraid of you guys all other people have moral values try it you might like it like Beniam.

2 young lives were taken that night. The difference between the two is that Biniam was getting his life together and your BABY took it, stole it. If you raised your baby right he may have not killed a man that everybody grew to respect. The thing that bothers me is that these decoto kids dont care. Yeah he'll serve time but what will he learn...nothing. You can see your son, your son is still alive and breathing. But he robbed a family of ever seeing their son and for that the community has no tears to shed. A violent act deserves punishment and I am tired of the hard core attitude turning into the victim who never had love therefore he pulled out a gun and killed. Next time bring that up before you decide to kill.

WORDS OR GUNS? Please do not pretend that people who murder people, beat their own, would use words rather than violence. If they knew how to use words to express themselves people would not be dead.

Pissed off period. This whole thing was a bunch of BS. Kids going to High School parties with guns. This kid should absolutely be tried as an adult so when he gets to prison he can be someone's bitch for the rest of his life. Biniam was on his way to becoming a very productive member of society unlike the bottom feeder that shot him. Nobody stays in a gang and remains free. You're either a prisoner of the gang or a soon to be prisoner of the system.
