    Ok so this is my family member and I do not appreciate the racial comments…and also the person who assumed he sold drugs and was on welfare needs to know the facts before you write a comment about someone who has past away…the violence is ridiculous and I’m not going to do the “my race is better than yours” because that is the least of my worries at this time of sorrow…learn how to show some respect…

    • johnny69

      Good people are better than bad people. Goodblacks are better than bad whites, and vice-versa. He was a drug dealer, so that makes him a BAD PERSON. Good people of the world benefit greatly from all bad peoples deaths. How much death did he sell to the idiot drug users? I embrace his death, not to be mean but I want the good guys to live, bad guys to die

  • Spit

    Is this the “Closet Racist” section ? I never see any racial comments when strange white men are luring 13 year old girls. That must be acceptable with all of you “Blame it on the black man” COWARDS !

    • t'mara

      spit, there’s nothing closet about the racism shown on this board, except the racists keep their own identities hidden. i’m also very disappointed that the message board owner (KDKA) allows such rampant hate speech. KDKA has a responsibility to monitor this board more closely…it’s not a matter of “free speech,” this is a privately owned web site.

  • Victims family member

    @ Spit…I agree 100%

  • rsq

    in the now famous words of rodney caint we alllll just get along

  • Victims family member

    @ Dan its not TRUE…so like I said know your facts. You speak like you have a degree of some kind…you make yourself sound like an ass…its 2011 almost and your still blaming African Americans for your downfall…you must also not have a job since you are so closed minded and dumb…get educated and quit taking the time out of your day to comment on this news story…your a low life and have nothing better to do…I feel sorry for you and I will not continue to feed into your ignorance…I’ve said my peace and may he Rest With God…Be Blessed!

    • agkaska

      You are correct in pointing out the insensitivity in your time of grief. On a personal note, I was no more than a block away at the time of this tragedy(on official business).

  • lauren d cosgrove

    Keep in mind that picture is a mugshot lol!

    • LDC is a renob

      This isnt a mugshot, its from his PA ID card. Mugshots have a gray background not blue, mron

  • Victims family member

    @ Lauren…and that has what to do with his death? Nothing…I don’t see anything to LOL about…you people are the most close minded individuals I’ve ever encountered…its sad…really sad…get a life…I don’t see how you can point fingers at a particular race when white people are all over the news for all kinds of crazy wacky killings, robberies, and more…crime does not just exist just within one race…don’t throw stones if you live in a glass home! Be blessed!

  • Karen

    That is what is wrong with this world, everyone looks at the race when something happens. Instead the person or persons that are involved should be looked at for the type of person they were on the inside not the color of their complexion.

  • Andrew

    this is sick how people can talk about others when they don’t know everything…so he made a mistake..we all do you people commenting about this man need to learn some respect and my blessings go out to his family members!

  • Victims family member

    @ Karen I agree…I don’t get it…it’s 2011 almost and I just can’t believe these people can be this close minded and cruel… @ Andrew…thank you for your blessings they are greatly appreciated…

  • Cop Land

    He was a drug dealer. KNOWN drug dealer. He lived this life knowing the risks. Googel his name he was arrested and CHARGED just within the last 7 months in that project (FACT).

    • crazycat84

      Ya he sure was a big time drug dealer and known for selling fake coach products. It was only going to be a matter of time for he was shot a killed

      • Spit

        …when did fake Coach become a drug ?

    • Spit

      i bet you do drugs

    • ANON

      Just a thought…..While teh fact was he was charged. The (FACT) is also the charges were dropped. The (FACT) is the police dropped the charges b/c they were guitly of a couple of crimes as well. Hmm. Pot calling the kettle black?

  • Victims family member

    @ Cop Land…get educated and learn how to spell Google before you post something negative…don’t believe everything you hear because the whole truth was not told…at the end of the day there is no excuse to take another persons life…regardless of their past or ethnicity…I’m over it…I’d rather reflect on the positive instead of the negative…Be Blessed!

    • crazycat84

      Well that’s what happens to people who are up to no good

    • lauren d cosgrove

      So the 28 grams of cocaine he ingested and had to be removed at a hospital . Yeah he was a great person more like a waste of life.

  • johnny69

    Sad that his friends and family are all on here worried about his “legacy” instead of worrying about the death that he was dealing out to all others in the nasty drugs while he was alive. That’s not just a “mistake” … he was dealing death to others, so don’t justify it merely as “so he made a mistake.

  • Kyasiia Domiiniique

    So his death changed the drug situation in your community, did it put us one step closer to ending the war on drugs, I dont think so? Why concern ourselves with his life style, yours didnt change. If he was a drug dealer or not his children dont need to hear the city slander a man that they didnt look at the same way everyone else does. I thought we should all be worried about the guy going around killing people instead of the guy he was killed. Drug dealer or not he was a peorson with a family, how bout we respect that.

    • johnny69

      he was a killer HIMSELF! When you deal drugs, you are ALSO a merchant of death!

      • crazycat84

        I totally agree

    • notadrugdealer

      probably opened doors for the remainder of drug dealers !!! pump pump pump !!! =)

  • johnny69

    She is LHFAO and her buddy relative lies decomposing as she laughs? Who has time to Ltheir FAO when mourning?

  • john316pa

    I found the story that he was arrested months ago for beating up a police officer and ingesting ounces of cocaine. Which I believe is a felony, so why was he out on the streets again already? That’s what we should be questioning about this sad story. Our Justice system really needs an overhall big time. I will pray for his family and the sad person who took this mans life.

    • YourVoteisInvalid

      so- he didn’t serve it to your kids. He’s also not the reason why YOU use cocaine.
      …so stfu =)

  • 2059

    He was a good boy!!!!!! PFFT!!!!!

  • Lifetime Hill Resident

    Regardless how Teante lived his life, that doesn’t mean that he had to die! It’s not a white, blue, red or black issue. People of all races & ages are drug dealers,ie; Robert & Christina Korbe ! All of this back and forth arguing stuff is uncalled for! And for several of these people who don’t know Teante at all, shoiuld just keep your negative comments to yourselves! As you all have no couth amongst yourselves while his family is at a time of mourning! I will do you all a favor & pray for you all, since you have the need to be sooo biter in such a sensative situation, called DEATH!!!

    • johnny69

      It is the basic story in every hollywood movie, bad guy gets hisin the end. All drug dealers are bad guys, period. Whatever color their skin is, get rid of them ALL. ALL DRUG DEALERS ARE THE ENEMY, period

      • Raven Steelerette Rainey

        @Jonny69- I see that you have alot to say! How about drug dealers are doctors, lawyers, ivy league college students, cops, even someone that i ask for a Tylenol!!
        I guess that whole world is the enemy!!!! Go luck living in your little bubble & my God bless and open your eyes to being a more postive person!

  • WOW

    i think this is so said , no man should die by another persons hands this should only be a choice by GOD . I PRAY THAT THIS FAMILY HAS PEACE AND BLESSINGS IN THE COMMING YEARS .

  • Spit

    @RSQ, yeah- same words of MLK. why can’t the OTHER side come from behind the white sheet & unify ?

  • A little advice

    To everyone on this page that feels the need to be so disrespectful, may God help you. No matter what, I’m sure all of us have loss someone special to us. Who and what gives is the right to bash/judge ANYONE.

    Nothing about this situation is funny and/or amusing?

    If anything, we are all apart of the problem, not just one person. Have you looked in the mirror lately and asked what have I done for society lately. I’m pretty sure the majority have to think for a long moment.

    No matter what, when you lose someone, I hope you think back to this moment and remember how heartless you were and then you can receive the same treatment. No one person is better than the other.

    If you are so concern about the drug selling, prostitution and all the other crimes that occur, what have you done to deter.

    The fact is, this was a man who God gave life to, none of you guys. Absolutely, no one has the right to take it. I pray that no one has to experience this unexpected pain but if you do, think back to your negative comments today. Hopefully, no one can voice their negative thoughts to you.

    It’s a new year, people, lets all possess a little common decency.

    • johnny69

      OK now my turn to preach some advice. All my fellow good guys get a permit to carry, when the bad guy findsyou (and they WILL find you) protect yourself.

  • Jeff

    You know what I find funny. All these so called family members and friends refuse to help the police. I am quite sure there were witnesses to this murder but none will step forward. Why? Because it’s way cooler to wear a stop snitching t-shirt and act like a hood rat. Like has been said many times, he knew the consequences of the life style he chose to live and it caught up to him. Maybe all you grief stricken family members should have done something while he was alive and we wouldn’t be reading this story now. I have no sympathy for any of you. You reap what you sow!!! And on another note. Obama ain’t my president. I didn’t vote for the socialist, and his race had nothing to do with it. I’d vote for a black, red, yellow or green conserative who believes in the constitution over a white liberal any day. Your one term wonder will be out in a couple of years so enjoy it while it lasts. The majority of this country is fed up with the free rides.

    • johnny69

      Awesome post Jeff, I too am SICK of the FREE RIDES that ANYONE gets, no matter what color their skin.
