You all are a real compassionate bunch huh!? We'll wrap your little minds around this!

The streets are run by the people serving time in Pelican Bay. Belive it and right now the orders are calling for a long summer of children being killed on our streets and police are being targeted also read the papers everyday cops and children are dying!!! and all you people say is one less gangster it goes deeper than that people!! Wake up and take charge of your childrens lives! and the communitys!!!

I send my condolences to the family. And for those who say one less gangster on the street? You should be next one less ignorant idiot out there, and on the internet.

If u don't care about someone dying why do u take the time to post something negative. Is it bcos ur life is so f**kd up that u take pleasure in someone elses pain? Worthless piece of u know what.

Must make you feel better to think that this kid had supportive and caring nuclear family, a mother and a father that loved him, brothers and sisters that cared for him, church going and got good grades. But I'd bet a years salary that his mother has 5 other kids from 5 baby daddies, his dad is locked up somewhere, has been pretty much on his own for the last 10 years and the only people that 'care' for him are the older thugs in his gang.

Society's throw aways.

Ruben Galvan was my student for two years at
Hosler Middle School (close to where he lived and
was shot). And he was acutally one of my brighter
students.
NO - he was NOT a gang banger. NO - Mama didn't
have her kids by 5 different men. She is a very
nice, very caring lady, and my heart goes out to her.
NO - daddy is not in jail.

If Ruben had been the shooter, some of these comments might be justified. But since he was
the VICTIM, many of these comments are downright
cruel. The family just lost their first born child,
for heaven's sake!
How would you feel about comments like this if
it were YOUR child???!!

I respectfully suggest that the people who are making them save their comments for situations they
actually know something about!

Hey to all theese people that are talking nonsense, I met ruben. And he was NOT a gangster and he was NOT a thug, he didn't deserve to die that way at his age. His mom and dad are very nice people.

My son was a really close friend to ruben. Ruben was always dancing, riding his bike or laughing. My son is very heart broken to hear that his friend is no longer here.
So please have some respect for his family, his friends and for ruben.

-Rest In Peace Ruben Galvan, you will be missed
