If these punks think they are old enough to play God then they should be treated as adults and pay adult consequences. Parents should also be tried for not teaching their children to have respect for life.

If my child was out of control, in gangs and tried carrying a gun I'd step in and try some sort of intervention before reading about the loss of an innocent life.

Its disgusting and I blame the parents for not having any control of their children; the school districts for taking all the after school activities away that leave these kids on the streets with nothing to do and immigration for allowing so many aimless illegals to remain in our country. People that want to work and contribute to society should always be welcome - those that don't need to leave.
