  1. It’s karma dumb ass and go to hell! That’s not how that works. You’re a literate and inconsiderate. I hope you experience the same loss or similar one and someone told you that as a rebuttal! God bless you!!

  2. there were a lot of car thefts in that area. likely related…. if a family hasn’t come forward yet or news regarding a victim hasn’t come forward yet; the theory of a perp being shot makes sense.

  3. So he was arrested for shoplifting at Sun Valley and gunned down the same night? Karma.

    • Melanie, shoplifting is stealing from a STORE, not someone’s personal property, not violent. And karma is in the afterlife not in this one. Stay on amazon shopping for dresses instead of on your community site spreading filth of a young man/teenagers death.

        • Jaywalking is a crime, so is littering, graffiti; does that mean you should be murdered for these? Especially a teenager who’s figuring out life still?

          • If you lose your life while committing a crime, maybe that will send a strong enough message to others to be honest. I have no empathy for anyone who loses their life while committing a crime. Adult or teenager.

            It’s called a WAKE UP call. Ever watch the program “Scared Straight?”

            Parents fail their children, the church can only do so much. Criminals don’t take arrests seriously. It adds “street cred.” Going to prison is no big deal. They join gangs, do drugs, get raped, get a PhD in criminality. And we ALL end up paying for it. No, thank you.

            Death is FINAL. The truth hurts, and criminals have no one to blame but themselves if they lose their life while committing a crime.

            Have a nice day bro.

  4. Dmitri,

    Do you not see how these events may correlate? That area has recently been a hotspot for vehicle break-ins. What business did he have there….hmmmmm so hard to fathom what it could possibly be. If Melanie is correct and perp was already nabbed at SunValley odds paint a pretty clear picture of wrong place, wrong time, wrong crime.

      • Melanie and Nick, remember who Jesus forgave on the cross? THE THIEF. But glad to see the rat race get to you while you have more compassion for corporate losing a couple dollars than a teenager getting murdered (which isn’t a wake up call, it’s a final decision). If his body was found on Empire mine road, that’s the abandoned one with no cars. Sounds premeditated to me. But that’d take critical thinking, which you prejudice Nancy Reagan types have none of.

        • If it was premeditated, was he a gang member? You can stick up for low lifes and enable and make all the excuses you want. The rest of us are sick of crime, and sick of warehousing these idiots to the tune of 65K a year. As a taxpayer, I’m sick of it. If you can’t do the time, or suffer the consequences (murder) don’t do the crime. It’s real cut and dry. Take your pathetic bleeding heart elsewhere. If you’re in bed at 2:20 am (where you belong) you don’t have to worry about it. Where’s the parents?

  5. not wanting to be robbed or have a gun pointed at my face is ‘prejudice’ how cute. people are waking up; might be time to go back to victim university.
