jesse and all of us act stupid sometimes, but hey, every teenager does something stupid at least once, we can't all be perfect living in a dysfuntional world...that old pig probably didn't even know it was a pellet gun, his sight too hard with age. but no offense seriously, i miss my dawg man...he was great and funny, if you knew him, it was just like our posse... we had fun, good times and bad, some stupid decisions....yes, he was drunk and high when he raised the gun, but hey, the cop should've tasered him at least or shot below the waist, instead of killing him....i thought first offense was shooting below the waist..maybe i'm wrong, but neways, he was a great friend even though we hung out not as much as some of his friends, but may he rest in peace! and his words to us..
"yo, if i die before u guys, i want u to snort my ashes to have a lil bit of me in ya wherever u go.."

I was locked up with Jesse in Lorain, right before he went to Richland and got a judicial release, and I can tell you that he was a good kid, never apt to act out violently, and I seen this because prison offers opportunities to act out as such many times in a single day, and he just humbled himself and carried himself with respect for both himself and others. He was a lil comedian, but what was remarkable was his rapping talent ... he absolutely sounded just like Eminem and that astounded me!!! Rest in peace lil Jesse, you did not deserve what happened to you by some trigger happy cop who knew you and obviously had it out for you, and primarily because you were a jokester. God Bless You.~Taken too soon~

<quoted text>All this supposition would not be there if it were your life in danger, I think your "questions" are absurd,It is a sad situation on both sides,Indeed there is something wrong with this picture and you need not look far to find the problem,If he could have been saved then where were you when he went to prison? or when he was going out with a gun,It is totally irrelevent if this officer(s) was in uniform, undercover, or not, People far away heard the command to DROP the gun 3 times, I feel sorry for people who have to live in that community with its crime and blight which is so apparent by merely driving through the area.I sympathize with the family , But anyone can see the police acted correctly.
The officer never identified himself as an officer and he was in plain clothes I would have shot him for aiming a gun at me. So you people who weren't there just leave your comments to yourself because barberton police are crooked that officer knew us by name and had a grudge out for him and he was mad because we wouldn't work the streets for him so don't open your mouth till you know the whole situation. I lost a good friend to a dishonest cop its OK he will get his when its his time.*-489##636

Jakey, you really need to get laid, man. Chill out, it's 5 degrees today, easy to chill out. Just another little boy talking like a big man behind an keyboard. And watch out, that bridge might fall on you, Jakey.
