Aren’t They Always?

This 15 year old kid was shot and killed in Orlando

She’s devastated and wants to know who killed her son. She said he loved sports, attended the Boys & Girls Club and was working to turn his life around. “He was just the best son ever. He had a lot of issues, but he was working through it. It’s not right,” [his mother] said.

Would it be too much truth to tell her that most likely her sons murderer is another fatherless latchkey criminal out to make a name just like her son was? She can find the root cause of her maternal failure in the mirror.

If he was “trying to turn his life around” at 15, who let him screw his life up to begin with ? I have to agree with Bert.

As with tales of the homeless, the whole grieving-mother little-angel-inside turning-his-life-around no longer has the effect on me it used to. The mother may well be devastated, but I’ve heard the same story too many times, it’s become a caricature.

And yes, at 15? Agree with Bert and Chuck. Look in a mirror, lady. That’s who failed your son. But of course anyone who points that out – either now or earlier, when you might have actually done something to avoid this – is racist, evil, etc.

Really? Do you have any evidence (I didn’t see any in the story) that this kid was involved in drugs, gangs, criminal activity? Do you have any evidence that there was no father involved?

The evidence was the mother’s own statement: “Turning his life around.” From what would he need to turn from? We can only speculate what that would be, but certainly it wasn’t something good.

Assumptions were made, maybe incorrectly, that no father is presently raising this kid. Statistically speaking, odds of this are likely, but not certain. The welfare state encourages this breakup of the nuclear family, with results as we are seeing. All of this would cease of we turned to God.

From a different article on the same shooting:
“The kids came up and told me (Corey) got shot. I ran down there and he was laying there, and there was nothing I could do,” said John Keedy, the victim’s stepfather. “It’s hard. No parent should ever have to bury their child. No parent.”

News 6 spoke to Krystal Petry, Jones’ aunt who lives in Pennsylvania.

“From what I understand he was at the park near the house, hanging out with a friend when they were approached by another group and a verbal altercation ensued before someone pulled a gun and shot him,” Petry said.

Really? Do you have any evidence (I didn’t see any in my post) I claimed the kid was fatherless, or involved in drugs, gangs or criminal activity?
