  4. Sorry for the loss..life is life.

    All emotions considered if we keep having to say sorry for losses but not prevent the loss what really is the point?

    I’m tired of hearing about both young AND old people flirting with this psuedo gang culture and then being surprised and devastated at the loss. OF COURSE he was a nice boy, all humans fundamentally are but there needs to be a level of honesty about how likely some people will uinfortnately be victim or a part of such unique horrid incidents.

    Once again, I mean no offence to the deceased family /friends ( and am stil not truly sure if this is the right response to post given the grief of all concerned) but if we want to stop hearing about this sort of thing then we need to look each other in the eye honestly and ask ” is there anything this person could have done to avoid being in this situation” because I still am not buying that kids are ambling around minding their own business on road and are getting killed for nothing.
