This man I know and he was a GOOD caring and loving man! Whoever did this needs the chair!


Man, this doesn't make sense, it's 6am Tuesday morning and no shootings in the West Valley yet? The guy in this article was shot last night so that doesn't count. There's usually at least one by now or some other crazy situation going on over there by now. I'll give it a little longer then check back to see the West Valley carnage of the day.


And he died. That man who got shot last night had a mother who is heartbroken and a child without a dad. People such as yourself are a part of the problem. The lack of empathy and compassion. I see the point you think you're making. Yes the crime rate is higher in the West valley, but to sit and troll the news sites just to make unnecessary comments on other people's tragedies seems unproductive. Maybe starting a blog would be more suiting for you. That way the families and friends of the ones involved in these stories don't have to read what's on your mind.
