Many of the kids in the "gangsta" culture have adult mentors. The adults require their charges to commit violent crimes in order to gain "respect". The kids in the attempted OK City pharmacy robbery had two adult mentors.
Jaqures was far from being what most of us would define as a 'kid'. Only 13 years old in body, but a street smart adult.
I do not take pleasure in the death of a real kid, but this thug was no kid...he was only headed to a life of crime...'nuff said!

What a sorry, sorry reflection on the YouTube/FaceBook/American Idol/15-minutes-of-fame culture that's been bred here. A creepy little nothing of a kid gets his hands on a gun and posts a picture of himself looking "bad" and "gangsta." When we pay professional athletes bajillions more than the President, when "musicians" such as rappers get rich promoting misogyny, crime and disrespect, and lastly when we effectively encourage moral decay with social policies that encourage rather than discourage strong nuclear families, stories like this one are an inevitable result.

Not good that the kid was killed, but it is good that the victims weren't harmed and there's one less thug out there to grow up to be a major thug. If he wasn't killed he would have grown up to be a huge drain on the city, county, or even federal economy.
Kid or not, good riddance to bad rubbish.
My prayers are with thee parents, regardless of the reason, it's the worse thing in the world to lose a child.

It's better to prevent a crime, than to punish it.
I hate to see anyone die young or old, however, he made his bed. No matter what anyone says, at 13 you inherently know better than to do things like this.

I am all for bad guys ending up dead but when the bad guy is only 13 it sucks.
Chalk one more up for the good guys!

There's a major family FAIL. Props to his worthless father & ill-equipped mother - great job.
