dawn 421 is now GOD..."it was avoidable"? NASTY COMMENT, DAWN. You just did not need to add that. But you have the right to speak no matter how others feel about it. That gives all of us a chance at forgiveness now doesn't it.

The stupid racist mindset that keeps us from standing together as a people against this radical, corrupt and evil government will most likely never end because of our free will to hate. Our society is being dumb-ed down to the disgrace of the nation; and to its ultimate demise.

Whoops! It was Thumpers mom in Bambi with the great quote "If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all",,,,however we all have free will. And that is that. Like it or not people can say what they want too. Don't read it! My God we have to put up with people urinating on Jesus as freedom of speech. wtf Why even take comments from someone you don't know and get all bent out of shape.Now, Nativio, why would you even start the "black" garbage. omg Ya, how many cared about the four white kids killed in Leavittsburg a few years ago. People die that is life=at least we are all equal in that area. lol blacks and whites die I flippin hate the race bull shizzen!!! When will it end!

I dont feel it is up to any newspaper to delete comments. some are saying what they feel. I agree that it is awful, but where were the parents or parent? you need to check where your kids are and then double check it. not by calling the cell phone but the house phone of where they claim to be. though it is a tragedy it was also avoidable.

freedom of speech is not absolute power to say whatever or whenever you want, there are rules to it, read the whole constitution, there is a section on "fighting words" which is not protected under the freedom of speech,, as for reading heartless comments, it was not the time nor the place for them,6 families lost their kids,FOR WHATEVER REASON!! it was a tragedy in OUR community and support to the family and friends should have been the topic, as for the details of the crash that should have been saved for when the official report comes out! instead of all the assumption and coulda woulda shoulda remarks,, can ppl not show sympathy for human beings in their time of loss anymore??

"A thing can be true and be utter folly." Fiver

At the end of your life, it is better to have been kind and good than always right. A person can be a absolutely correct horrible person if he/she chooses, but I'd rather be right in a humble sort of way.

Empathy requires us to see beyond ourselves and think of others before acting or speaking or blogging. It's the golden rule in a way, but greater empathy can be developed and taught. It's important.

You have to admit there were some heartless comments made that needed removed. Put yourself into the shoes of the victims' families.

All people do in this comment section is argue with other - how ignorant. I thought the comment section was designed to comment on the incident not what other people are saying. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but come on - use common sense.

Blues, it takes a moment to ban a single IP or a moment to ban an entire country. Think first will ya!

Everyone of us agreed to this when we signed up. There is no freedom of speech when you agree to this. As an owner of my own website I have banned thousands. Heck, Billions if I include China and all other Communist countries. It takes only a moment for me to ban an IP. They cannot join or even see my website. Although you have to be careful, If you ban a person who signed up at work or school then chances are you have banned them all.

You people need to realize that if you want to be rude about dead black kids, you should go back to doing it in private... Or in public with like-minded people after you look around the area to make sure nobody can hear it who would kick your arse.

And if the Tribune online nannies really wanted to take care of the problem of certain posters posting "heartless" garbage, they could start banning ISP internet addresses. This would stop certain people from starting new IDs when their old one gets banned.

I understand they did this when a commenter made comments about a gay, former warren businesses man.

Freedom of speech does not protect comments made about dead kids on the comment board of a two-bit newspaper.

That much quoted "freedom of speech", at least from the constitution is about POLITICAL SPEECH.

Why were there even comment boards opened up for these stories? What can people possibly say about a tragedy like this?

Look at the stories and editorials that the Trib NEVER even opens up comments for.

And once the trib saw that this story involved six dead black kids with the...issues they had, the comments never should have been opened. The trib editors have to know by now the race baiting that you people fall for time and time again...especially when they cave in once angry people either start calling or showing up in their office.

I am glad you shut the comments section down. The comments I read were downright awful and The Tribune should monitor comments more closely. There are ignorant people out there that have no feelings about anything and are dangerous with their words. I would have erased 90% of those comments - people arguing with people! If you cannot say something nice then don't say anything at all.

Very good Tribune on removing those comments. To the ones that were making them God don't like ugly and you better hope and pray your words never come back to haunt you. Karma.

me personally i am glad that the comments got disabled you people who judge the parents for the choices the teens made make me sick unless you were in the parents house you have no right to say anything about what type of parent they were my parents were excellent parents and me and my brother still made bad choices growing up. I GUESS YOU WAS NOT RAISED WITH RESPECT IT IS RUDE TO TALK ABOUT SOMEONE WHO SI GRIEVING A LOSS OF A LOVED ONE. THERE ARE SOME HEARTLESS JUDGMENTAL PEOPLE ON THIS PAGE

The letter was published to invoke comments. The letter is about the comments not the tragedy.
