Seeing how most people out there don't know the whole story behind the stabbing of two innocent teens and i say innocent because no matter the situation noone deserves to be stabbed, shot, etc. Also the two teens that were stabbed were not seen or found with any kind of weapons on them.Cameron the young Hip Hop artist has had long notiriety and it is ignorant for the person who mentioned Cameron using this to his benefit.

Garcia admitted stabbing teenager Cameron Gipson on Sept. 15. He denied stabbing Dawayne Barnes, although he told police he would have "if he had the chance," court records show. Obviously this teen "Victor Garcia" has no kind of remorse as observed in his own statement above.

The person that spoke about accountability obviously did not read the article. They just saw Hip hop,rapper, and stabbing and automatically thought that Cam Cam did something wrong.I suggest you go back and read it clearly and if you don't get it, read the article that was printed earlier so you can get it. This young man was a victim of a near fatal stabbing and within 3 weeks had the will and determination to follow his dream and perform on stage regardless of any physical pain or mental stress caused by this attempt to take his life.

The 16-year-old is being held on $260,000 bail. He's charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, each of which can carry a sentence of up to four year in state prison. Garcia is also charged with inflicting great bodily injury, which could carry an additional sentence of three years, of committing a violent felony, which could add another three years, and under a state statute that prohibits plea bargaining in certain violent crimes.You do the crime be prepared to do the time as the saying goes, wich i believe in.

Of course no one deserves to be violently harmed by another. However don't be so naive and think that when two teens go to fight one teen that the one teen is not scared (even if he won't admit it) and he may think of a way to even up his odds. Teens and young adults have a very hard time thinking through these situations rationally. Let's face it...the victims had a BIG hand in creating this violence for themselves. This was not a random act of violence...all 3 of these boys made a horribly bad decision that day.
I have heard for years from my kids how talented CamCam is. I hope him and every other teen takes away from this that instead of getting involved in such non-sense they would be better off staying away from stupid situations and focusing on their schooling, interests and talents.
I heard the voting for the talent winner was very close, keep at it Cameron, as long as you focus on learning and growing your talent and there will nothing to stop you from having a great life.
