    Hi and

      Sometimes it appears that we’re reaching a period when our senses and our minds will no longer respond to moderate stimulation.We seem to be reaching an “age of the gross”.Persuasion through speeches and books is too often discarded for disruptive demonstrations aimed at bludgeoning the unconvinced into action.The young-and by this I don’t mean by any stretch of the imagination all the young,but I’m talking about those who claim to speak for the young-at the zenith of physical power and sensitivity overwhelm themselves with drugs and artificial stimulants.Subtlety is lost and fine distinctions based on acute reasoning are carelessly ignored in a headlong jump to a predetermined conclusion.Life is visceral rather than intellectual and the most visceral practitioners of life are those who characterize themselves as intellectuals.Truth to them is revealed rather than logically proved and the principal infatuations of today revolve around the social sciences-those subjects which can accommodate any opinion and about which the most reckless conjecture cannot be discredited.The student now goes to college to proclaim rather than to learn.The lessons of the past are ignored and obliterated in a contemporary antagonism known as “the generation gap”.A spirit of national masochism prevails encouraged by an effete core of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals.

    Y’all dont know him or what happened so it’s best to shut up . He’s not a bad kid at all actually so it was a reason. Mind your business 💯🗣

      Pshhhhh.

      Yeah and I’m the Pope.It’s all of Barberton’s business!! Fool!!!

        Now be nice, we don’t want his friends who I’m sure are also “not bad kids at all” coming to “talk it out” and bring a gun and start shootin is all up…

    • DJ on January 25, 2018 at 10:08 am

      So you are telling me it is OKay to shoot someone over a girl? I think I will just go shoot my ex’s new girlfriend. I hope the shooter gets some serious time AND anger management.

    • Good Ole Boy on January 25, 2018 at 10:36 am

      One of these Akron tuff guys is going to come across an ole hillbilly from Barberton and it might end in a good ole fashioned shootout.

    • Shooting witness on January 27, 2018 at 9:23 pm

      I saw this happen first hand. In my opinion it was self defense. When 4-5 grown men attack a skinny 18 year old kid he wasn’t left with many options. Wish he wouldn’t have fire a gun so close to my house, but in his place I would have probably done the same. They were threatening him and ran across the street to attack him. People shouldn’t be so quick to judge.

      • Obamas purple lips on January 28, 2018 at 8:03 am

        I didn’t know they drove to his house with a gun.seems like intent.

        • Shooting witness on January 28, 2018 at 9:47 am

          This didn’t happen at either parties house. Did you even read the article? Or just jumping to conclusions?

          • Obamas purple lips on January 28, 2018 at 10:04 am

            I’m still coming up with intent regardless.

      • Shotgunsurviver on March 6, 2018 at 1:54 am

          you lieing thats my brother n he not a bad kid u had to do something to him to make him shoot u cuz he never shoot to kill some one my brother know better

    • Witness to impotence on January 30, 2018 at 4:32 pm

      Do we really need to know an 18 yr old with a gun? And why would I shut up? Why does my opinion not deserve to served up next to yours or anyone else’s. Y’all need to understand a social medium when Y’all see one. Take a moment and help us understand the reason for shooting them there people.

      • Obamas purple lips on January 31, 2018 at 7:50 am

        A few years back,while walking into the convenient store on 5th by circle k there was a kid walking into the store ahead of me.He swung the door open and stepped to the side to allow me in first.I said thank you buddy and made a mental note of how rare that is nowadays in kids his age.A week later I was reading about the murders on the east side when I saw his picture.I felt the same way I do now writing this.Fighting back tears.Then rage.How dare these low life scumbags take that little kid and his family’s life! He was such a quiet,polite kid.I never got the chance to repay the favor and hold the door for him.Absolutely ridiculous! I’ll never forget that.

    • Anonymous on February 9, 2018 at 7:44 pm

      We’ll see how good of a kid he is now that he’s in the system

  5. Anonymous on January 22, 2018 at 6:06 pm

    Just heard on the news that this shooting wasn’t about drugs. That’s the good news. Bad news is that it was because of a girl!!!! Guess I ‘m too old for the logic….pull out a gun because my ex is with someone else?!! No one that I know would ever do that for the sake of a woman!! Hope she feels special now.

    Couple of things to consider before commenting.
    – how do you know it was drug related
    – do we know they were from Barberton

        That’s what’s wrong with ppl now always what to speak on stuff that they know nothing about that’s where the problem comes in at

          That and poor language skills.

        • Youhavetobekidding on January 25, 2018 at 9:43 am

          The actual problem would be someone shooting someone else… if you think news comments are worse than that, look in the mirror, you’re the problem.

      • Obamas purple lips on January 22, 2018 at 1:04 pm

        Look who was right on track.^ We could use a wall on the Akron borders.
