      If it is their fault – i agree fully. If it was not their fault – i don't know if they should get into anymore trouble than leaving the scene.

    anyone know if the cars were speeding? was the victim in the cross walk? ….running into the street or casually crossing it or what?

    How is it not their fault? Those kids that hit him are disgusting individuals who have no regard for anyone but themselves. What kind of decent human being hits a person and leaves? They killed an innocent person because they were being reckless and stupid. They are despicable human beings and should be punished to the fullest extent and given the maximum amount of time in prison. Those kids should not be allowed to live a life because of the one they took away because of their actions. The only life they deserve is one in prison. They were RACING down the street. How is their involvement in this even in question?
