    Parents, where were you when this child was growing up? Where are you now? What’s really important to you? I don’t get it. If he had some psychological issues, why didn’t you see it? If he’s running with a gang, did you know his friends? This boy and that woman’s life is changed forever. Were you aware of where he hung out? Who was he listening to? This is beyond sad.
