I wonder what kind of a upbringing that poor kid Victor has ? He certainly wasn't born bad,

Upbringing or a lack thereof is zero excuse for not knowing it is wrong to stick a knife in someone. Can't do the time? Don't do the crime...

Hey resident,

One of the kids was from Amador and I did not read where Victor was attending. Village may be for the kids that need alternate types of schooling but what was the Amador kid doing there during school hours? Funny how you look right past that.

Jon -

Your implication that this behavior is to be expected from Village kids but not Amador kids is insulting. Not everyone attending Village is a troublemaker. My son went there to make up units he missed due to illness and ended up staying because he liked the feeling of family and felt that the teachers cared more. The faculty does an amazing job and the majority of students there are very supportive of each other.

My heart goes out to ALL of the families impacted by this.

All outcomes can be traced back to the parents.

Grace,

The other post is gone now but was basically saying that it was the Village students fault and not mentioning the Amador kid at all. I am a big Village supporter.

Jon,

You know Amador kids can go 1-6th period and get out at 2 p.m., right? This is what Cameron's schedule was, so he was out of school already when the incident occurred.

Just remember, upbringing and income level has nothing to do with violence. Read back a few years and you'll see a lot of violence with highly prosperous parents. Village gets its kids from your backyard.

We need to have compassion for the teenager who made a terrible decision and ruined his life so early in the game.

I agree with Jon. Okay if Amador's dismissal is at 2pm what I do not get is what was Cameron doing over at Village. If he is such a good kid, like his father was saying in Pleasanton Patch, he should of been at home writting out some raps or whatever. Also, has anyone asked themselves what would make this Victor kid do something like this, there had to be a reason WHY. I believe he had to feel threatoned by these 2 boys. I myself believe it was self defense.

The kid from village victor, is innocent cameron is a wanna be Northern gang member he is always talking smack and starting things. If he was at around village it was for a reason i know that he and dwayne must have started the fight first thats prob why they got stabbed. I know this because i once whent thru this cameron started talking smack behind ppls back and when they confronted him he was a lil bitch and denied everything and snitch on them

I know Victor and he has always been friendly and helpful. I read an article that said that Cam admitted in court that he went to Village High looking for a fight. Let us all pray for all of the families. Hopefully, there could be a positive lesson for all.
