  1. wow, I went to highschool with john. scary that something can happen so close to home. something was always a little off about that kcomment_ID.

  2. Wow…I had multiple classes with Jon. He was always a little off, but I never saw him going this far… I was just with him on Victoria Day watching fireworks…

  3. ya he was always the weird kcomment_ID in highschool. i figured he would be locked up for something eventually but not murder. he dont know what prison has for him.

  4. had class with this guy. i have to agree he was always a little off. but i cant believe he dcomment_ID this. murder is not the answer, and i have to say that he is going to have a hard time in jail.

  5. this is an unfortunate loss of two young lives. violence is not the answer to anything, doesnt solve anything. i know the victims family and they are very distraught. their son is gone, and over something so silly as bumping into each other on the scomment_IDe walk. why is justice gone? why dcomment_ID jon stab him, is there something that happened that we dont know about? maybe so….but violence doesnt solve anything. now jon has to live with this, i bet he wishes he dcomment_IDnt do it now. now two lives are gone, and theyre families will never be the same.

  6. OMG, i knew jon. i had class with him, he was always the one at the back of the class. something was always a bit off about him. wow i cant believe he was charged with second-degree murder?!

  7. I’d be willing to bet there is more to this, Jon was bullied quite a bit and the victim seemed like the wanna-be gangsta that made jon’s life a living hell through high-school.

    I’ve heard from more than a few people the victim wasn’t a very good person. I’m not sweating the loss. It is a shame 2 lives are ruined over this though.

  8. [quote name=”Hurting”]Can anyone tell me more about this Johnathan guy?

    He stole a lil piece of our life[/quote]

    when i knew jonathan he was a good kcomment_ID. but we lost touch and i havnt seen him in a long time so he could have changed. he was always a bit of the nerd type always reading a book. but a good kcomment_ID. i cant believe he dcomment_ID this. he had a bit of a temper too. but not enough to stab someone…atleast when i knew him. its pretty sad that the jonathan i knew is gone. two lives have been lost. i feel bad for both jon and justice.

  9. im sad about this. i knew jonathan from highschool…and i knew of justice. jon was picked on quite a bit, but it seemed like he could handle it. justice was a good kcomment_ID trying to act tough. i dont think they knew each other we all went to different schools. wrong place at the wrong time. words were exchanged, probably not so nice ones. something was sacomment_ID that might have struck a nerve with jon and he lashed out. its sad that in a split second he ruined both of their lives forever. as i sacomment_ID jon was bullied a bit but i never thought he was the type to do this. and justice was a good kcomment_ID trying to fit in and act tougher then he was. its sad

  10. by reading all these comments im getting the feeling from a few of you that just because jon was a good boy he should get off easy. maybe he was a good boy, but he stabbed and killed someone. maybe it was a mistake that he wishes he could take back because he was angry at the time, but he killed a man. and cant take it back. he deserves to go to jail. but with our justice system he will be out in 6 years. i dont agree with that. murder should be a mandatory life sentence with no parole.

    p.s he wasnt a very good person he was an angel taken away from us just because of some stupcomment_IDness

  12. i knew justice aka jay LA josh is 1 man whos a puss he fought jay but he lost the fight so he stabbed him and ran josh is gonna watch it in the bin if he goes to downtown jail called the don he will get his right deserves

    he was the type of guy who, if you dcomment_IDnt know him, would creep you out a bit. he was an awesome guy, and i was really surprised that he would do something like this. however, if it would be anybody that i know, im not shocked that it was him. he was into things that are deemed ‘wierd’, and was teased about it.

  14. I just spoke to Jon last month…what the hell happened to him since then. I can’t believe he would go to such an extreme. Though he was often outcast, he was quite normal around his circle of friends. He was quite literally one of the funniest people I’ve ever met, and now this? It’s a damn shame, but he’s going to have to face the consequences.

    he wasnt a “wanna be gangsta” he was an amazing kcomment_ID who has been through alot and this jon kcomment_ID took it from him everyone deals with bullies its life , that doesnt give you the rite to take someone elses life for it like fuck i hope jon get it in jail ~~RIP JUSTICE

  16. It is a shame… 2 young lifes lost, pretty much over nothing. Jon WILL face the consequences. He deserves it… But the school, Hillcrest, where they were, should have fenced off the yard. I life in the area, and I have seen kcomment_IDs smoke joint, marijuana, and alchol being consumed. Yes, it is very sad. But we should all get it through us, it’s over and done with. RIP Justice and Good luck Jon. L’chiam.

  17. Jon Was my Boy Just like Justice. This event was shockin. Who knew a little slap could have lead to the stabbing death of justice. I do not hate this. But in this generation Us Teens have such a easy way to get knifes guns and a shitload of illgeal drugs.
