    Thank you Katie for this article. This really shows who my brother is, not a gang member. He was just a friendly, fun and loving brother/friend.

    Kim Parigoris you are right, the system didn't fail him, it wasfirst and foremost our parents!!

    Someone needs to get tough with these gangs, and not with intervention counseling.. It is a well known fact that after a certain age, the success rate is very low on rehabilitation- a 14 year old that kills someone in cold blood is past that point and there needs to be tough consequences- spare the rod, and spoil the child and these thugs have no respect- no fear, and someone needs to put that in them. It is quite apparent that the soft touch hasn't worked. Good old fashioned discipline, starting at young ages remains the tried and true solution.

    What a sad, tragic story. It isn't the system that failed this boy, it is the breakdown of the family and moral structure and the undermining of our value system. He never should have been in the "system". An absent father, and being shuffled around like a piece of furniture. Hopefully an absent father, mother, brother, sister will read this and become engaged in someones life- and maybe save it. Very sad.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
