    I too is a close friend of Taree's family. His life is not worthless. He grew up in a great neighborhood that was crime free(Sonny's neighborhood)lol. Its all about choices. We must stop being freinds and be parents. Our teens and young adults or in a state of emergency with the crimes rates. The violence must be reduced with the goal of eliminatin. We must take a positive role to help turn this around. Locking them up on their first offense is not always the solution. Sometime they are in the wrong place wrong time and wrong company. There need to be an about face program for the young adults too. Drugs were brought over during the Contra War and placed in the African American cultures to bread a seed of destruction. That's why the Black Panther organization was distinguished. That organization did not want drugs in the community. These young adults are products of the influence and hype society too. On televison today, violence, sex,and anything negative sales. We as a society must do something positive to help wit crime.

    It saddens me when I realize that we can not move beyond color. I personally know the parents of Taree and trust me they are upstanding citizens. They are college educated with great careers. Taree was an exceptional highschool student. Sonny Taree's life is not worthless. Neither are the others involved. I pray for you because it's that type of ignorance and hate that lands souls in hell. And there is a Hell Sonny. I pray you dont personally find out.African Americans and Whites are born with the same organs and the same color of blood RED. Your kids are no different. Actually they are the kids purchasing all the Hip Hop music. Open your eyes Sonny. The world you are attempting to hold on to is no longer. Hip Hop has bridged the gap.I will remember ti lift you up in prayer while im praying for Taree and his family.

      If this isn't ignorant...i don't know what is. If you read every story about a crime and a "black man" is a suspect, eventually those are all of the stories you'll go looking for so you can say something STUPID like you did; oblivious to the fact that black men aren't the only gun users, "thugs" and "trash" in Tallahassee. Let's do a background check on a few of your family members and see how clean they are..or some of your neighbors and see how innocent of a life they've lived in your clean and thugless neighborhood! ...how do i know that's your life style? Because i'm insinutating just as you have with your comment!! No where in this story has a black man been listed as a suspect and i'm sure you weren't there!! Get the facts and details straight before you come with more bigoted MESS of a comment! Sidenote: Spell and grammar check next time! Thanks!

          Trust me when I say that I work in a position where I know for a fact that most inmates in the prison system have better care and a better lifestyle (save the fact that they're locked up) than the ones that work to "rahabilitate" and "educate" them. Those of us who legitimately work and attempt to contribute something positive to society have to PAY for our clothing, food, cable, and housing expenses. I vote we go back to the way prisons used to be ran. I can guarantee you that if we did, there would be no need for "rahabilitation" efforts, because the living conditions would be enough to make a convicted felon never want to return. :)

          this little thread reminds me of what someone recently posted on another article- in Vietnam where they have a prison on an island for murderers and rapists. They never get to leave after finishing their sentence, get released from prison, but stay there to keep their genes out of the population gene pool. sounds good to me!

        That's "The Honorable Mr. Scott!"
  • by Hey on Jul 8, 2011 at 01:09 PM
    Ask him who he voted for - if Obama - ask him for his insurance card or don't treat him. (being sarcastic). That's the way it will be soon if Obamastupidcare passes. All these gunshot "victims" will be tossed on the street because there will be NO MORE NOT-FOR-PROFIT hospitals. That will be thanks to SCOTT AND OBAMA.

      Seriously? The first comment on this story is a political statement?

        hey...LM!!!.. before you discount HEY's comment, try to find the part of your brain that uses LOGIC.. This individual crossed party lines and pointed out the abuse of power by both our current governor AND president. While the final statement is ultimately incorrect on several levels, you have to give some credit for acknowledging the facts on both sides...

        The long and short are this: The private hospital WILL put you in aa ambulance, and transport you to a NFP Hospital. They have been doing this not only years, but generations!
