    This is fucked up. I dont know if here is the right place for this.

    The fact that that motherfucker Kuck is commenting about this makes me sick. That fucking asshole doesnt deserve the right to comment when someone looses their life doing what they love.

    He described the young man's death as "a wake-up call for the community," in that property owners need to erase graffiti quickly to remove this incentive, while parents and teachers need to be more "tapped in" to children's lives so their talents might be better directed.



    I love how they'll fucking twist ANYTHING back around to control the public in some way.

    great, graffiti doesn't need to be brought to everyone's attention

    why in the shit did they specify that the father's apartment is luxurious?

    But notice it mentions he lived with his mom, and gave the neighborhood's name. How many rich kids live this kind of lifestyle?

    I don't believe in destiny. He could've just as well escaped the train, but unfortunately he didn't, for whatever reason. Didn't have to be that way.

    I think the most moving thing about this article is the last few lines from his dad. Boy, I can't imagine what he is going through, but look how hard he is trying to understand his son's life!

    There is a thread on ALFA in The Heavens section.
