Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.).

  1. Unbelieveable. This is just too bizarre for a comment.

  2. Most of the articles about this pair fail to mention that they are very likely illegal aliens, and are also being held as such.

    The employer of course, says they presented valid information…probably stolen, bogus or forged, but they are claiming that they did check.

  3. Russ,

    We are adding such crimes into a national registry: Victims Of Illegal ALien Crime.

    Do you have a bona fide link confirming the perps were illegal aliens?

  4. pfwag–

    This article does suggest this:

  5. Why doesn’t anyone check and tell about how his own mother treated him. I mean yes the two people needs to be punished but Why hasn’t anyone checked out how he was living? He walked to school everyday in the winter with no jacket no gloves or hat. He was always introuble for no apearent reason!

  6. He was the sweeetest lil boy. Well they all are but this one was special. My sister in law was not close to him as in family but she was close to him.
    His mother use to maybe still does not sure but ask for money from the streets. Said that she needed it for rent. He was not taken care of like a child should be. This just hurts to see this happen yet to another kid in Utah. I am sure it happens everywhere but this is the same area that destiny died also. Just to name another.

  7. mylifeofcrime,
    I read to article from the link you posted. I think they should be deported whether they are found guily or not. If you can’t go through the proper procedures to be here in the US then you dont need to be here at all. I think this should apply to all illegals not just mexicans.

  8. Amy,
    I completely agree. I have no problem with immigration, as long as it is completely legal, no matter what country they come from.

  9. este respuesta espara todos los que piensan que la vida solo se rige por papeles todo es cuestion de humanidad es la vida de un un nino que fue un buen vecino no es por que sea de color o mexicano o cualquier otra raza por lo menos analisen las sus palabras antes de decir babosadas mas explicita bola de pendejos.

  10. I just feel sorry for the boy and who cares about the rest.. It was a boy that died! Think of the boy! This was so sad that he dies like this and it has nothing to do with T”heir papers” He was a little boy! How sad, and for those that are more worried about other shit..Shame on you!

  11. wow! never heard of this before.

  12. I remeber when i heard about this, I cried, Because I lost a friend, I feel sorry for him He didn’t deserve what happend to Him!!!
