(Portion removed because it referenced a post that was removed) The victim was a great kid. What a loss! My heart goes out to his family.

This is truly heartbreaking. He always was a caring and loving person. This is a tragic loss for his family, friends, and larger communities that he touched. My heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. May they feel support and peace.

For the PW staff who is censoring posts on the thread -

Why do you censor potentially (likely factually) negative information about the victim in this case while allowing posters to repeatedly slander police officers who have been cleared of any wrongdoing in the Bauer threads?

If you're going to censor people, at least apply consistent guidelines.

I am guessing the reason is because the post I saw included an awful statement about the deceased.

It appears the slander signal is working properly.

“ I am guessing the reason is because the post I saw included an awful statement about the deceased.”

Huh? The comment was pretty tame and added what appears to be solid logic for why he was murdered. People in pleasanton don’t randomly get killed.

“ . . . Logic for why he was murdered.” First, we don’t know. It’s speculation. Second, you have no idea what this young person’s circumstances might have been. Third, even if the speculation turns out to be true, death is not a “logical” outcome. Fourth, murder is a crime. Fifth, this person has a family and friends, people who loved and cared for him. There is no reason to torture them with unnecessary, unkind, and vicious commentary.

Start another thread and explain your slander comments. They don’t belong here. Thanks.
