    To the son, you’ll probably never even read this but doesn’t hurt to try. As a Latino, We aren’t the best at showing affection but I can guarantee you that he knows you loved him more than anything. Don’t live with that false regret friend, your Apá knows you loved him. My condolences and stay strong.

    I lost my dad a few months ago and I never got to tell him how much I respected him and how much I was thankful for he was the only one that would check up on me and I would get annoyed cuz he would always ask questions but this whole time he was the only one that cares enough to even ask and I pushed him away..I have so much regret I can’t even express it I’m hurt that he’s gone and I’m hurt on how I treated the only person who loved me so hard…tell your family how Much they mean to you every chance you get because you never know when the last time your going to see them

What does my name hv to do with the behavior of my original comment? I wasn’t talking about trump or any other GOP?

      @Rick S Yeah his dad really died which is real but they just just changed little facts here and there. They said his mum came out in there morning but actually he came out in the morning so they knew someone came out. There was also other little bits changed and stuff. As a 14 year old kid you want to believe what you saw on TV is real but your friend is saying it's not real so what are you gonna do? You choose your friend over the TV.

This is becoming too frequent that we have this type of violence in the US. What the hell is going on! People are losing their minds losing all their humanity and compassion. I'm in shock and my heart goes out to his family, so tragic.

      That’s what happens when you vote for politicians who are soft on crime and decide to make more lenient “progressive” laws which in fact hurt the very same communities that demand so called “change” like BLM for example. Nothing good came of that movement and now the crime rate in Los Angeles is surging thanks to those politicians and woke activists.

      These crimes are government psyops. Undercover agents are influencing and encouraging these hoodlums nowadays (and possibly participating too). There was an article posted last year about the pentagon saying they have over 70,000 undercover agent working domestically. These are your Flash-Player stars, actors, blm, proud boys, creating long lines to hoard toilet paper and start the pandemic, attacking Asians, protester, a new rap star or singer.
      America is too organized and advance to let anything get out of hand unless it’s done by design. In prison, the ward and 50 guards are able to host and control 5000 lunatic inmates simply with politics. Divide them into gangs and race.
      Same thing is going on in society, this is how the 1% elites control the other 99%. Split us up with politics, left and right wings, blm, this group or that group, stay 6 ft apart.
      Like I said, all done by design.

      @kantraxo ikol What do you propose we do? Ban gun ownership? Constitutionally, that cannot be done. But even if we did, the criminals would still have the guns. Why? Because criminals don't follow the law.

      The biggest change we could make is focusing on keeping the family unit intact while flushing social media and pop culture down the toilet. This kind of behavior is learned in the home (one way or another) but it can also be curbed in the home too. It's called parenting.

    He didn't let you have free food so you take his life forever? Who are you?!? I hope they serve this guy the crappiest free meals the prison system can give him for the rest of his sad life. - Rest in peace Alejandro

    You probably won't see this but your Father loved you very very much. He probably just didn't know how to express it the way other fathers did.

    Just know that to guys like him Working means everything to a Man. And he got a chance to work side by side with his Son.

    Lots of kids don't get to spend time with their Dads. You got to work shoulder to shoulder with him. That's Respect. Take what he taught you and carry on and be strong.

    This is a sencless act of violence. We as a community should not act in such a way to commit a crime such as this. Nobody wins nobody loses! Victim or suspect we all lose. In these times we need not to treat each other as animal but as a human being for if one falls we all fall that's the bottom line. Rest In Peace justice is the only way 🙏

    That speaks volumes about Mr. Garcia's character as a man for his son to say he wants to be just like him as a father to his own kids. You don't hear young people say things like that nowadays about their parents hardly anymore. They usually want to be like entertainers and athletes. This man lived right and I have the utmost respect for men like him who do right by their loved ones and especially their children. That animal didn't have to take this man's life over a measly counterfeit $20. I hope he never sees the free world again....free society doesn't have any use for individuals like him.

    This is so heartbreaking, it's about time these fast food places have security after hours to protect their workers, employers are expected to sight cash for counterfeit but when confronting the customer the situation could turn deadly. In this case it did, $20 is not worth losing a life over, taco bell pay shouldn't expect their employers to put this life in line for a fake $20.
