    Wow I can’t believe you all have so much time in wasting your opinion on here….its really sad. This is why the world is the way it is. People only truly only care about themselves and what they will get out of it. Do you really know the true meaning and your purpose on earth ?!? Sometimes keeping your comments to yourself is best. I know I was taught if don’t have nothing nice to say then you have nothing to say. Worry only about things you really can control because our country and world would be in such a better place. Look life is way too short love and like your neighbors !!!

    Sympathy first…..but you mean not only out of town black guys shoot and kill people too?! From the reporting of both here and the globe it wouldn’t happen to a local white boy. Think about that before your hate speech

    I hate the fact that people have no respect and have to splatter everything on facebook. My goodness, maybe all the family members don’t know, maybe the family members don’t want everyone talking about it on facebook. I would hate to find out about tragedy of a loved one on facebook! I don’t care if all the kids at the high school are talking about it, maybe the kids parents need to talk to them about respect.

      Do you know the family at all? Many of the family members posted on facebook about it before the media had any information.

    Yes, it IS on Facebook, and yes, he has passed away. Another family in our community is overwhelmed with sadness AGAIN. Matt, thank u for waiting for facts before elaborating. Rumors always run rampant in a small town…especially when the family is so beloved. RIP young man, and may your family’s pain be eased by love & support from all who know & care for them.

    What the hell is wrong with people? It’s getting to the point that we aren’t going to have to worry about the Mayan calender prediction of the world ending at the end of this year… we’re just going to kill ourselves off before it gets here!

      Nonny – You missed it by a long ways, I think there is over 4-5 degrees of seperation between me and the politics of North Iowa.

    Matt – I would hate to see someone “accidentally” leak out the minors name or any information that would expose this child on this open comment thread.

        So you saying Matt shouldn’y have a picture of the house and being trying to sell a picture of the house like the globe gazzette does right now? Or naming what he was shot with and two other juvinilles are being investigated like the globe?

        By selling the picture of the house is the Globe trying to profit off finding a picture on the internet and demanding payment for it?

      I don’t agree with all that has been released, but I have to note though, the comment thread on the Glob is closed.

      That will keep someone from blurting something stupid out (which never happens on here) and releasing the protected information.

        Every student at MCHS already knows who it is. It will be posted on hundreds of facebook pages before it is released to the public. Thats how word gets around in a small town.

        Actually watcher the comment thread on the Globe is closed except on their Facebook page.

        It is harder to post something stupid on a thread like that on Facebook, where you have to put your real name (yes I know some idiots have found a way around that) on the line.

        Still the amount of coverage does tend to push too many lines.

        I am very careful about what I post on any media’s open Facebook page. I was contacted once because a media thought I had some pertinent information by what I was posting… I did, but I was not willing to share it with them.
