Lock him up for good. Shooting at 17, he has NOTHING to contribute to society.

This senseless act of violence could have been prevented by more security cameras.

Don't forget loving involved Mothers and other family members, strong role-model teachers and preachers, loving neighbors and friends, acceptable community activities and many other ways to direct this youth to a more caring and moral life. I don't think we must give up on him yet, there is still hope he can turn his life around. Look at role models like Dr. Ben Carson at Hopkins who almost stabbed a young man in his youth, but with a loving and dedicated mother made it to his current position. It is time to say a prayer for sll these kids.

OK I'm not the best typist. I meant, "It us time to say a prayer for all these kids."
