This is sad. I wonder if the killers will once again have a history of past crimes. It seems everytime this happens these boys come from fatherless homes with siblings of multiple men. Each of these kids born to whore mothers.

@joetheplumber: Really? Is that the most compassionate thing you can say about an innocent man losing his life needlessly...whore mothers? No wonder this city, hell, this country, is going down the drain. People like you and your comments make people like me wonder why we even bother to give a damn about our fellow man. Lucky for you,we still do.

People always want to say what their backgrounds look like forget that he did wrong but at the same time he believed in good and took fault for his actions he did not deserve to lose his life and his daughter did not diserve to lose a father which he was a damn good one at that and Jack you just like the media want to throw up what someone did before they death well hell he didnt hurt anyone so that makes him a whole lot better than his murderers if it was someone white u would never hear about all their crimes that they did before they died so please keep all negative comments to urself let him rest in peace we his family are already having a hard time copeing with his death and u negative people only makes it worst Thanks the McCane Family
