Jar jar jar,
Who are you to always be talking so much about other people? He was a great person. Did you ever come to think maybe he was in the wrong place at the wrong time? with the way your mouth is always running I'm sure you'd get stabbed in an instant if you weren't too scared to say who you are. You need to leave people alone especially in a situation like this. Have some respect for the kid and his family.

RIP jose
My condolences to his family and friends. My prayers are with you.

Playing devil's advocate. After all, I know just how "law abiding" everyone down there is. Always turning a blind eye to the criminal elements that surround you.

I will say this, being surrounded by millions of people and with car jacking, stabbing and murders happening every single night where I live, I will never get stabbed or shot at because I know better than to hang out where violence is likely to occur. Oh yeah, it also helps that I hang out with business professionals, not thugs or wannabe gangsters.

I am not saying he was a bad guy. I understand that bad things happen to good people but think about WHY he got stabbed so that if you really are a concerned friend, maybe you will take it to heart and not be in "the wrong place" like he was. RIP young man...

:((( awww. i read it. this is soo sad. no family deserves to go through this pain. i always fear these moments. i hope the family dont try to stab the murderer. its a hard thing not to do in a situation like this but they have to think about their family. ones already gone. dont be number 2.

Another young life ended in such a violent way due to alcohol and/or drugs. And before anyone jumps down my throat what else were these kids doing out at a "gathering" at 3am? I can bet my life they were not having cake & punch, especially in OG. I know, because I am from there & was part of that party scene. I wonder if parents would set a better example all over the world maybe things like this wouldn't be such a frequent occurance. None if the kids mentioned in the story are even of legal drinking age, someone needs to go after the person who bought & supplied these kids with alcohol. Everyone in OG needs a little Jesus in them, that place is like the pits of hell. I hope the family of this young man will eventually find peace in this tragedy and begin to heal.

And in no way am i suggesting this young man deserved to die the way he did. I am just saying parents need to lead by example and raise their children in a ways other than the party lifestyle

ummmmm stabbing someone does make him a bad person! why would he go to a party with a hunting knife? and he was lookin for a fight with someone else so apparently took the knife to cut them up! so no he is not a victim, he went to the party with the intention of killing someone, only that person lucked out bc jose was there to stop it. now jose's family and friends are mourning the loss of an awesome kid.

your cousin is not a victim, he lost his right to be called a victim the moment he took matters into is own hands and took another life. he is the agressor! whatever happened to fighting fair and using your fists?

I AGREE IF THAT KID WENT TO A PARTY WITH A HUNTING KNIFE THEN HE HAD ALREADY PLANNED TO CONFRONT SOMEBODY AND WAS EXPECTING A CONFRONTATION. THAT SOUNDS LIKE PREMEDITATED MURDER AND THAT IS PUNISHABLE WITH A DEATH SENTENCE. NO EXCUSES FROM ANYONE WILL BRING THAT KID BACK SO WHATEVER HE GETS HE DESERVES IT. REMEMBER PEOPLE IT WAS A HUNTING KNIFE NOT A LITTLE POCKET KNIFE. SO WHAT THE KID WAS OUT AT THAT TIME IN THE MORNING, I GUESS 99% OF U HAVN'T BEEN OUT AT THAT TIME HUH. IT IS POSSIBLE TO BE OUT AND JUST HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS WHILE OTHERS ARE THE ONES LOOKING FOR TROUBLE. DONT GIVE ME THIS OH IF U R OUT THAT LATE U R LOOKING FOR TROUBLE CAUSE TROUBLE CAN FIND U IN THE MORNING AFTERNOON AND NIGHTIME. I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT THE FAMILY GETS SOME JUSTICE AND THEY PUT THAT KID AWAY FOR LIFE OR DEATH ROW.
WISH U THE BEST IN UR TIME OF GRIEF AND KEEP THE FAMILY TOGETHER CAUSE ONLY YOUR FAMILY CAN HELP U GET THROUGH THESE TIMES.
