  • My condolences to the victims family, there are no words for a loss.
    But I do believe in responsibility, individual and journalistically. The public would like to see a follow up story in regards to this case. Viewing the other side of the story, a 19yr old being threatened by the victims and assaulted by this group of boys (at least 5 of them). Was it self defense, instead of malice? Will this even be investigated because this 19 year old is Hispanic and he will become one more statistic labeled as a “murderer”?
