‘The Kid’ A poem by Kyle G. Quinn:
“The kid next to me with the crazy mind.
Maybe the magic bullet from his gun will find
A future president, teacher, lawyer, lover.
Will the persons’ family cry and suffer
Just due to this kid’s raging emotions.
Who knows if his words will ever take motion.
All I can say is that for the sake of us
I hope what he says is just a bust.

Update: Prosecutors won't seek death penalty in KU fatal beating
* Assistant District Attorneys Jonathan H. Kurland and James T. Goldsmith said there are no aggravating circumstances to warrant seeking the death penalty against the defendants.
"The # brothers did not do anything," Dowdle said. "My client’s family is very upset." There are few words to describe how Kyle's family must be feeling, but upset isn't one of them. Quinn was talking on a cell phone. "Who are you talking to?" suspect asked. "Not you," Quinn responded. Suspect grabbed the cell phone and threw it. Suspect picked up the table leg that was lying nearby on the ground and hit Quinn on the head. The three were arrested minutes later. Kyle died a half hour later.
What are aggravating circumstances ?

Drop charges in Kutztown death, lawyer says
A Phila. lawyer representing one of three men charged in the fatal beating of Kutztown University student Kyle G.D. Quinn asked a Berks County judge Thursday to dismiss charges against his client for lack of evidence.
Did any of these participants try to STOP this fatal beating?
# exchanged words with the victim but did not participate in the beating.
"Something more than mere presence at the scene of a crime must be shown to convict one of the participants in the commission of a crime."
Were the participants HELPING THE WOUNDED KYLE OR LEAVING THE SCENE OF A CRIME when they were stopped? What part of this am I missing?
Kyle had the right to Life, LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.
First Degree Murder Charges Reduced Against # Brothers The two are now charged with THIRD DEGREE MURDER.
“They want you to keep your mouth shut. If you keep quiet, they’ll get away with murder. Speak up!” Kyle Quinn
