people ask me why i never became a detective in law enforcement. if i was a detective i would take and look at
every little detail information even on the internet what people say on the web is very valuable even on the street. when you have these punks who can't fight they're
out a bag and pick up a gun like there a man. there's got to be away to intervene this stupidness. on the down low
all the way from the south i use to stay in california and never seen so much croward acts.

I'm deeply saddened by this young man's senseless death even though I don't know him. I live in the area and often drive on 48th Street late at night. It is a tragedy when it seems you can't drive on the street at certain hours without getting shot. I wonder was he targetted or was this just a random shooting. May he rest in peace.

ILLEGALIZE THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS!! TODAY RIGHT NOW. NOW IS THE TIME TO BECOME A MORE HUMANE AND CIVILIZED SOCIETY. WE ARE THE ONLY WESTERN, DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY TO ALLOW GUN POSSESSION. IN MEXICO THEY DO NOT ALLOW SUCH LAW. TALK TO YOUR CONGRESSMAN ABOUT ILLEGALIZING GUNS!!!

Please pay attention to how these young killers are being raised as children Their childhoods are sometimes filled with so much pain and anger they then inflict their pain on others, Help ALL children to be raised up with love, if you see a parent struggling, help them with anything you can if only your kind words. Make them feel important and worthy--both parent and child. Not many children raised up in love become merciless killers. I am a fostermom for 19 years==please stop the pain!!!

People something has to be done about all of these cowardly murders. If we continue to keep silent, they will continue to wreak havoc. The next person could be your loved one---and what if nobody stepped forward to help? If you are concerned about retaliation you can give information anonymously or use this blog. If you don't have a computer at home or you don't want to use your home computer go to the library. Block your phone number, send an anonymous letter by mail, just do something. Nobody has to know who you are, but we just cannot continue to do nothing. These cowards always go back and brag to somebody about their cowardly acts, so somebody decent has heard something.

Family and friends, I am sorry for your lose. May you find strength and peace.

Another young black man's life taken. Before he had a chance to figure out exactly who he was. Before he had a chance to gain the wisdom that only comes from living and experiencing life. But why? There will never be an answer that makes any sense. I am so sad. This was my great nephew who I never got a chance to know. You always think you have lots of time. To his mother and father, to his family and friends, may God give you the strength to endure this heartache. To the police; please don't let this case be another statistic thats added to the unsolved crimes shelf.

May the Lord encamp about you during your time of loss.
There was a special entitled “A Family Undertaking” on KCET last evening, and I thought about this blog, the fallen brothers and sisters, both brown and black, and the relatives left scrambling to prepare for a decent funeral, sometimes at a time when there isn’t a lot of spare cash.
THERE WAS A TIME WHEN EVERYONE WAS LAID TO REST IN THEIR HOME and apparently the tradition is coming back.
Family/friends seemed so peaceful in the presence of the body of the deceased and their added personal touches and the beautifully decorated casket by family/friends attending the service made it more poignant because it reflected each person’s individual relationship to the deceased. The body is prepared so that there are no visible wounds and that means a lot when the death was disruptive and violent. Even the children who were old enough to understand death’s finality in this world weren’t afraid because of their participation in the preparation of the body. I personally think this type of service offers a twofold blessing.
It just seemed so right to give the information on this blog and please know that I am doing so with the highest regard for your loss. I pray for our young black and brown, and their families. At the rate they are falling, families sometimes don't get an opportunity to say goodbye and have peace about the death before they are bombarded with arrangements and funeral decisions that need to be finalized hastily, which increases the stress of an already unexpected and tragic situation. Feeling as if you are unable to put a person away in the manner that you would like, can leave you feeling heavy with guilt, which only prolongs grief.
In home funerals are humane, inexpensive and allow family members the needed time to adjust to the person's death.
I have worked with terminally ill patients for 13 years and have actually shared in bathing and dressing the deceased with loving family members before the funeral home came to take their body away. It may well be one of the hardest things you will ever have to do but you will find that it is worth it because you are doing it for a person you love, including preparing their body for final burial. Their belief was that being at home gave their family/friends the time needed to adjust, accept and work through their death, while being in the familiar surroundings helped ease their grief by causing them to remember happier times.
I believe and pray you will find this information helpful. Below is the information that will provide further assistance.
“The California Department of Consumer Affairs licenses and regulates the California funeral industry, crematories, and the nearly 200 private cemeteries in the state. The Department also allows consumers to prepare their own dead for disposition. If you choose to do this, you must provide a casket or suitable container and make arrangements directly with the cemetery or crematory. A properly completed certificate of death, signed by the attending physician or coroner, must be filed with the local registrar and a permit for disposition obtained before any disposition can occur.”

My prayers go out to this young man's family. Our black youth are dying at alarming rates! The Black community needs to wake up and find some solutions to this serious crisis that we are going through. WE NEED TO STICK TOGETHER. WHAT HAPPENED TO "IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD". STOP THE KILLING!!!!!!

My heart and prayers go out to the family of this young man who was taken so tragically. My sister-in-law was his godmother and she loved him dearly he will trully be missed. All I can add to that is for the family and friends to stay prayed up always because only the Lord can easy you through these times. Whenever your heart is troubled, and your load is too heavy for you to carry, lean on Him and let his will be done. Amen
