    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Sheriff Phil Miller told CNN the attack happened after girls got into a fight, and one of the girls hit a boy. One of the suspects, according to Miller, said he wasn't going to "hit a girl," but the next guy who came by was going to get "beat down."

    Tillman was the unfortunate victim, and he was a "little guy, 18 years old, 5-foot-6, weighed 125 pounds," said Miller, who added that he didn't think the boys even knew each other.
    Talk about wrong place at the wrong time. The fact no one helped him doesn't surprise me. I can imagine the kind of house party this was. It's sad these kinds of people share our oxygen.

    A sad event and the biggest complaint of some parents was that their children/witnesses were bussed to the Sheriff's dept for interview without their permission.

    Wouldn't surprise me if "schoolyard" fights are all that most of those "kids" had seen up until then. But there's a big difference between scuffling for "show" and really going after someone.

    One never hears about anything good coming from parties of this size/type - 60-80 teens. Certainly not the kids fault for being there, and the 4 dirt bags deserve to be punished to the full extent of the law. However, once the wheels start turning in situations like these, it is hard to stop them – better to avoid.
    The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it. Albert Einstein

    "People in Arizona carry guns," said a Chandler police spokesman. "You better be careful about who you are picking on."
