Imagine that, a suburban kid gets into dealing drugs... and ends up getting shot. Perhaps this could end up as a lesson to others in the upper-end communities...

I don't care about the details. One poor child is dead and another is going to prison. Neither one of them had a chance to learn about life. It might be years and years before the 15 year old realizes the gravity of what he did. My heart goes out to both of their families.

Hey Doper.....

I do not understand your comment. Are you saying that only kids from low income areas can deal drugs? Kids get shot every day selling drugs no matter where they are from. Are you saying that is ok because they are not from "upper-end-communities". What if this was your kid? maybe that would be a lesson to you about how this can happen to anyone. No matter where you live.

I see that the jury has already returned a verdict on both the victim and the accused. I thought we lived in America. Let us all await the investigation and results.

You really shouldn't wish that on anyone. If you slowed down and read it, you would see he is making the same point you are. A teenager being shot dead in his front yard over a drug deal 'gone bad' is pretty uncommon to the upper-end communitees. His point was this should be a lesson that it could happen anywhere, no matter where you live.
I wish people on this site wouldn't be so fast to pick a fight. We most come together as a communitee in these times of trouble. Two local families lost their children forever...

As a mother of a 16 year old son, this hits close to home and is very scary. To be honest, we don't think that something like this will happen in our community. It is a good lesson for our kids though. It's just so sad, my prayers go out to the family, I can't imagine how awful this must be for them.

Let me tell you a story......I am a SRVHS graduate '96 -I grew up on Greenbrook Dr. at El Capitan Dr. - And EVEN BACK IN '96 I saw some shit that I only thought I would see in Oakland or SF....A large flatbed tow truck barreled out of the Denny's parking lot off of Sycamore Valley and almost side swiped the car my friend was driving. It followed us all the way down Camino Ramon until we got to El Capitan - It flipped on the brights and got in close - we slowed down to stop at a stop sign...the truck pulled just ahead of us and spun sideways in the intersection, cutting off all routes. Four or Five large men wearing cowboy hats jumped out of the cab of the truck. Two of them appeared to carrying a baseball bat and a crowbar....they walked toward us menacingly.....we hit reverse and got the hell out of there.......Another time a couple month after that......I was playing frisbee under the street lights on my street at about 2am - I had a couple of my friends with me and we stopped what we were doing as soon as we heard a bunch of voices turning onto our street. A group of kids, younger than us but much more in numbers, started walking toward us. The fat kid in the back of the group carried a film camera, a couple others carried baseball bats. As they approached I realized I knew the kid in the front of the group. "Hey man," I spoke. "Don't I know you from auto-shop class 3rd period?" The kid looked confused for a second. "Oh yeah - Pedro! I know you man! You're all right." He then turns around to talk to his group, "Hey everyone, I know this guy. He's cool. Let's go somewhere else." So I had to ask. "What are you all doing wandering around....and with a video camera?" His response: "Oh man, a bunch of us are on acid and we are going to beat the shit out of someone and video tape it!" I told him good luck, and was forever grateful for that auto-shop class..........Danville is a sheltered community where it's easy for kids to resort to violence - it's up to the parents to raise their children in a positive environment.
