Out of respect for the family's tragic loss can't people refrain from rants and trolling??

Bushytails • 6 days ago

I think you already know the answer to that.

If anyone I know ever dies and it makes LoCo I am for absolutely 120% sure not going to look at the post. Even if no one trolls (not happening) its too easy to misinterpret perfectly rational discussion as an attack. Someone called me a racist for a post that occured two days before I knew the victim was black.

Well he's being painted as such a good kid and maybe he was but the fact is he was up late partying and got into a fight. I went to parties when I was younger and never fought anyone. And "good kids" don't stay out into the wee hours parting. They should be home asleep.

Wow you went to parties and never fought anyone?! Everyone should be like you!

Good kids don't party into the wee hours? Geez I guess the majority of students are not good kids and they'll probably end up getting stabbed. And its not their fault they got stabbed but they're probably not good kids.

derek reese if only everyone could be a good kid like you! you're a genius! thank you for your comment! my god you're so perceptive! OMG

Listen up Eddie Haskel... I got in a few fist fights in college. Not proud of it. And I stayed out late partying. I did it all. I was also one of your "good kids."

Sometimes kids go out and party, I know many kids who had some fun staying up late and enjoying the night. Not everyone is a basement dwelling angel like yourself.

"Basement Dwelling Troll" is how I would describe this jaded clown.

Even "good kids" stay out late. But I will say that not much good happens at 3 in the morning.

May god bless David Josiah Lawson and his family, my child goes to Humboldt State. Yes, kids do party to relax after a stressful week of schooling and studying. Just because this young man was at a party doesn't mean he wasn't a good kid. My child is a very good kid, with exceptional grades, and YES, she does go to a party now and then. Please don't judge if you don't know the situation.

Good for you. You are such a straight arrow that you should be a role model. Shall I make you a poster?

LB • 6 days ago

I partied my ass off. All night long. Still earned an MA. It's called being in college.

freakadazoo • 6 days ago

whatever Idiot....nobody is painting the victim as being a "good kid". And yea "good kids" do spent nights out partying. But no doubt you were never invited to any parties, this would explain your jaded response on this thread.

How do you know?

Even if this kid went out nightly to party his ass off, he wouldn't deserve to be stabbed. Had he pulled a weapon and been rushed by multiple people it would be a different story. How do we know this kid didn't go out a few times a month...... College kids party, they don't deserve to die......

How do you know the suspect wasn't attacked and rushed by multiple people?

You're a judgmental piece of shit. May your life be looked over with a lens 1000 times more powerful when you finally croak.

I would be honored to be mocked and trolled in death

Jaj = kek • 4 days ago

Maybe try putting that stipulation in your final directive/will.

better yet, have someone post a map to your gravesite. I'll be sure to save up a nice big load of "mockery" for your final resting site.

What is happening to Humboldt and the world? I spent many nights out partying in Arcata, and no one ever got stabbed and killed! I hope they get the murderer and he pays for his bad decisions and choices in life, since kids are not learning the idea of consequences anymore!
