Re: RIP Jasper Howard

Yeah, that's just horrible. Such a sad story. Called his mom to tell her he won the game ball then a few hours later the head coach called to tell her her son had been stabbed to death shortly afterward. She warned him to be careful when he told her he was going to a school sponsored party/dance. One of his teammates held him as another applied pressure to his wounds trying to keep him alive. Tragic.

RIP

This just happened too. Sad day for the sport at all levels.

Re: RIP Jasper Howard

Yeah that's sad indeed. A young kid, star athlete, killed by probably some wanna be gangster.

The campus and surrounding areas of UConn univ is getting really shitty. They always have some madness going on.

Re: RIP Jasper Howard

Allegedly. He will get off because of how shitty our legal system is. This is where people need to take action, not in banning weapons but in prosecuting those who use weapons to commit crimes. If he did it (which he probably did) he needs to receive the death penalty. One less thug on the streets and one more example to what happens to those who would intentionally harm others. He will likely get a couple years at most or probation if it's a weak case. So frustrating.

25 years to life is real, i hope people realise what they are doing and stop, and the previous offenders go to jail for along time

He got the game ball for that game and proudly called his mom that night to tell her the good news. A few hours later she got a call from the team head coach telling her her son had passed away.
