    This was a vicious attack. This act was clearly wanting to destroy another human. That is HATE. PURE HATE.

    A fight is a one-on-one contest. This was a mob attack. Rather than letting the two boys fight it out like we did back in the day, they attacked as a group like a rabid pack of animals. It is absolutely disgusting, and these “kids” need to be charged as adults.

    Why can’t they say it’s was a HATE CRIME plain & simple!!!
    So sad. R.I.P to this young man 😢

      He specifically said it wasn’t a hate crime because race was not the motive for the murder. Apparently they think it was some schoolyard fight that went wrong

      @Rachel Boaz and that’s the “out” for the DA to go soft on these thug kids. They’ll be tried as juveniles, and a few of them will serve light sentences until they are 18.

    I’m so sorry for this young man’s family and friends, my prayers are with all of you.

    The fact that there were students standing around filming this and not helping stop it or getting help to stop it is indeed also MONSTROUS.

    As a mother of 2 teens, my heart is aching for this incident, RIP Mr. Lewis.
    These suspects need to be hold accountable to the fullest level, no excuses.
    Parents are playing a big part in this, it’s about time to play your role seriously, there are a lot of voices in your kids ears but your voice should be the loudest, consistently.

    Hate crime. Plain and simple.

    Thank you for your service to our communities. What a horrible thing to happen to someone’s child. The child lost his life.

  9. American Mom says:

    I’m so glad these boys were arrested. They need to be accountable for this heinous crime.
    To the young man’s family who was killed, I am sorry for your loss and I’m sending prayers. RIP
