This man has lost his life for some foolishness. You all should be ashamed making fun when this is serious.
Pitiful

Yes, the young man's name is quite uncommon, perhaps I would have teased him while alive.... but you folks making fun of his name given the fact his life was taken less than 48 hours ago, goes to show the lack of compassion the human race has for one another.

It shouldn't be a surprise that young urban fellows without much... kill without conscious. They are just manifesting what America has taught them, by any means necessary.... take what you want, and make your own rules. For decades our government has been employing young servicemen to do just that.

I can't believe it you were just here and now you're gone.I will always remember the times when you kept me laughing.and when you use to ask me how Arvel was doin and to stay on his back.or when I was down you would always make it your duty to see what what was wrong with me.because according to you.I was being to quiet.I'm still trying to sink it in and Arvel is to I think he's feeling it more since you watched him grow up.but you know him he's not gonna show it.well just know you will be truely miss.love ya Shadawn.Boy you know your name was always to long for me to remember how to spell but iwas the only one who would say your whole name.you even told me it was cool because I was cool.but at the same time that's what Shontel & Derrick called you and thats how i use to write it.R.I.P.you had such a beautiful soul.Love Always Ashley & Arvel.

And to the first couple of comments how dare you sit there and say those comments about his name.have some respect.this is someones son.father.best friend.co worker.etc.grow up.get a life and some business.
