  2. Darrell says:

    How do you know this kid doesn;t come from a single parent home? Maybe the parent works at night, and the kid snuck out on his own. You need to visit the wizard od oz and get a heart.

    2. Slh Gotlost says:

IT’WAS THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEKEND!!! UGH YOU PEOPLE MAKE ME SICK!!!!!!!! HOW THIS FOR FREE SPEECH

      1. darrell says:

        you know, im am really sorry the young man died. its sad when any child dies for any reason at all. everyone seems to think that only the driver of the vehicle has any blame in this incident. yes the driver is responsible for most of the blame. hopefully they will catch that driver and we will learn more details there. yet to say all the blame goes on the driver is wrong. the driver is guilty of many things but the driver didnt put the child on the street at 2 am nor did the driver put the child in the street in the street where he was hit.

      COLD HEARTED YOU KNOW YOU WRONG THAT WHY U HIDING BEHIND anonymous cause you can say thing so disrespected

  4. CeCe says:

    Yea u never the parents situation people are always so quick to blame the parent his mother works at night to support him, u should keep ur mouth shut…Talk stupid to the city they are so busy trying to take photos of people who run red lights, but dont have cameras for times like this…In July I witnessed a man get ran over luckily I went behind the car and got the license plate, last month a women was ran over and the car kept going and also a 7 year old lil girl who fighting or her life a truck jumped the curb while her and her mom was walking and kept going…people dont have a heart anymore….I dont see how they can sleep at night, but the man above is watching, the day of reckoning is coming.

    1. Carolyn Davis says:

      AMEN cece

    2. A says:

      My parents worked at night, but always found a way to ensure I had a ride home, was safe, and followed through with where I said I would be. Your argument makes no sense. They need cameras for kids running around, breaking curfew, jaywalking at 2 a.m.? The driver was wrong — VERY wrong, hands down… but this would never have happened if the kids had been more repsonsible and smarter about the situation, accepted a ride home, or stayed where they were after leaving their party. There’s no reasoning behind a 14 year old being out in the streets at that time. NONE — I don’t care what you attempt to conjure up about his whereabouts beforehand. Let this be a wake up call to parents and teenagers.

      1. elvin says:

        let me say dis if u phyiscally didnt know andrew like everybody thats defending him did then shut up andrea aint that type of boy he didnt run streets at night the driver ran the stop sign and now my lil homeboy is gone he was headed to his friend house after the wildfire thing andrew wanst in the wrong so really at this time just that this happend 3 days ago if you dony have nothing nice to say the i sugguest you dont say nothing at all

    There are not as many neglected children as there are children given more rights and access to things thatthey shouldn’t be. Thanks to America we can’t chastise our children like the bible says to, or pray in schools, or remove mess from the television showing and glorifying people being hurt, bullied and doing things to their bodies…

  6. darrell says:

    what sport in what school lasts so late at night that it would cause kids that age to be out on the street at 2 AM? apparently there was an entire group of irresponsible parents who let their young children roam the streets at 2 AM. when you have children you as parents are responsible for them 24 hours a day. i stand by my statement. if the parents had been responsible and taken their son home after the game he would be alive today.

    1. tt says:

      boo whoeveah yall is shut yall mouth cuxz mih frend andrew was probaly at wildlife and they do got some responsilble parents if yhu dont know nothinng hush.cuxz lake highlands high school do dahyt sso watsup.and im prety sure yhurs is to running sneaking out the window and stuff yhurs not qood.and know i stand bye my statement andrew green rest in peace because of innorant folks out here.make sure yhu take your kids home dont worry bout other people kids smh
      yall dont know how his mama is feeling

      1. Wolfman says:

        Cant understand a word your saying. Your not texting or on facebook.

        If the person who hit him didnt stop, he was probably driving without a license, or drunk. He was in the wrong all the way, but at 14 Andrew didnt need to be out at 2:00 in the morning, but this is still not his mothers fault.

    2. Carolyn Davis says:

      his mom work at night there no need to blame d parents if you were a compassion parent you would not be so cold hearted to blame d parent jesus chrrist people were u not a child at one time we all did silly thing that child didnot know iam sure that he was going to die why not speak n love to console d next parent who may have lost a child or childrens oh GOD IAM SO GLAD YOU DIE FOR US ALL AND YOU DONT’S THINK LIKE MAN WHY DONT’S SOME SPEAK UP AND TELL GOD HE WAS NOT A GOOD PARENT WHEN HIS ONLY SON DIE FOR YOU HE DIDNOT HAVE TO DO IT BUT HE DID TAKE HEED MR DARRELL IT COULD HAVE BEEN SOME YOU KNOW GOD IS VERY RESPONSIBLE BUT HIS SON STILL DIE FOR YOU SO YOU COULD HAVE A SECOND CHANCE N LIFE

    3. Carolyn Davis says:

      who give u the right to judge and u dont’s know d situation

      1. darrell says:

        ok, ive read all of your blatherings. yes, god was a negligent parent. if jesus willingly let those people take him up on a hill and crucify him then that would be assisted suicide. dont tell me about situations as i was raised from age 9 by a single mother who worked nights and i didnt roam the streets at 2 am when i was 14. those who did were usually commiting crimes. when you become a parent you as a parent are responsible for the safety of your children. there are no excuses for you to neglect that duty. NO, satan didnt kill this child. roaming the streets at 2am got this child killed. my children didnt roam the streets at 2am at age 14 either. they are alive today by the way.

    4. Slh Gotlost says:

      Hi, Darrell, or Mr Judgemental, my nephew, was coming from the after party event, not that we the family have to explain to you. Both parents are in the home and his 19 year cousin escorting him to the event, which was in the group, my baby was trying to get, too! Judgemental people don’t prosper.

  7. darrell says:

    ah, censorship is in full force. at least half the comments have been removed. the liberal media hates it when their readers use their first amendment rights.

  12. darrell says:

    KIDS lack the mental or physical tools to deal with the segments of society who roam the streets at 2 am. as a parent if you let your children roam about in that environment there will be events like this. im truely sorry to see this or any kid have to die but it is the responsibility of the parents to safegaurd their kids. there was a failure here to do so.

    1. Carolyn Davis says:

      JUDGE NOT AND YOU WILL NOT BE JUDGE
      DARRELL

  13. LaTasha says:

    Things happen. The World views things in judgement when there’s ONLY ONE JUDGE. I am a mother of five and I pray for the safety of them ALL. Death comes in the morining, laying in bed, night, in car and so on. This society places so much on parents especially single ones but it will take a village but where is it? I tell you where it is too busy sweeping everyone else porch and they better pray that their tongues dnt condemn them. To this baby I am so sorry that your life was taken in such a short time but God makes no mistakes. It will be your legacy that means the most the way you touched hearts of others. To his family I am so sorry for your lost and there is no words to say to erase your pain. In time all questions will be answered. And for the person that hit this child may God have mercy accidents happen Maybe you didn’t know maybe you were scared We’ve all been there but for the sake of yourself for peace if you do know Do the right thing it’s never too late to do that. God bless every soul that has been touched by this young mans life and the other that will follow..

  15. Slh Gotlost says:

    No TT he was not, he was going to the friend house, coming from WILDLIFE, SO YOU’RE NOT GIVING FACTS…..HE WAS KILLED IN FRONT OF WHERE HE WAS GOING!

  16. Nikki says:

    My condolences to the Green Family. I love you all! This is a very unfortunate situation, and I truly don’t understand why people continue to discuss the shouldas, couldas and wouldas – IT’S IRRELEVANT!!! Also what you fail to realize is regardless of how things took place – GOD called his Angel home. When it is your time to go – you will go – we have no control over the how. Apparently, GOD’s reasoning for putting this blessing into everyone’s life – was fulfilled. We may not understand the “why” and guess what, it’s not for us to understand nor is it on us to pass judgement on anybody else. This baby is gone, and his parents/family/friends are grieving for him. We should be giving uplifting words to help them feel as though they can continue to move foward, after having to bury a child. No one wants to have to bury a child. Lets pray for the family and friends and keep them lifted. Now is not the time to try to tear what ever they may have left in them, down! I pray for you all to be given GOD’s strength to get you through this hard time, but what ever you do STOP listening to the nay-sayers, they talked about JESUS, so what makes anyone else an EXCEPTION???!!!

  17. Robin says:

    These boys were not out running the streets causing trouble! Most of them were over 18 or close to it! Why is everyone so quick to judge? The poor child was run over and killed in front of his friends…the person didn’t even stop!!! Stop blaming his parents…my goodness they just lost their child…I am sure they have enough thoughts running through their heads…Have you not ever done anything you weren’t suppose to or been some where your parents didn’t know…I didn’t know Andrew or his family, but I do know one of the kids with him that night…they aren’t bad kids!

  18. AA says:

    RIP Andrew Green, I go to LHHS and I heard about this story saturday morning. Let me just say, no child or family should ever have to go through this. It was not Andrews fault, nor was it his parents, nor was it his cousins. It was the drivers fault 100%, He should have stopped, he should have seen him, he should have helped. I pray that the driver be brought to justice and pray for his family’s and friend’s recoveries. Amen

  19. Bee says:

    You know there comes a time when you meaning everyone on here that has something negative to say about the young man Mr. Andrew Green, 14 years of age who is no longer here on this Earth… just needs to SHUT UP, BE QUIET, ZIP IT! That is the point right there! All this going back and forth it don’t matter, will it bring Andrew back NO it will not. Everybody got an opinion and that’s just what that is. Andrew Green – LOVE may you rest in peace. I pray for the family…
    Justice will TRIUMPH!!! Please don’t worry watch how God works on this person who hit Andrew.

    Peace….
