RIP.

I don't understand this statement. "He didn't deserve to die."

A 7 year-old caught in the crossfire of a drive-by doesn't deserve to die.

Henry's unthoughtful actions were the direct cause of his death. He did deserve to die but his family is the one taking the hit.

how does anybody deserve to die, with the exception of some despicable criminals which Henry was not.

deserve means you receive consequences befitting of your actions. He chose to jump on a moving vehicle driven by an unstable person........a resulting injury is a befitting consequence of that action....and death is a befitting consequence of receiving a serious injury.

that's a nice clinical analysis, but this is someone's LIFE that was lost. Not deserved, IMHO.

gonna have to take that up with a higher power. Maybe God can hook us up with "takebacks" or temporary suspension of the laws of physics because someone is having a bad day

by mistakes i mean the collective mistakes he made through out his life. all the arrests he got to build his negative persona. based on THOSE actions, he did not deserve to die. jumping in the back of a moving vehicle was dumb.

but he's did not "have it coming to him"

try telling that to one of his relatives or close friends and see how well that goes over

I never said he deserves to die but how does one come to the conclusion that someone didn't deserve to die? I mean, you are essential going against the will of God then if you believe in God.

My main comment was that he did something extremely stupid that caused his injuries resulting in his death. It wasn't as if someone walked behind him and clubbed him repeatedly on the head for no apparent reason. His death was, essentially, his fault.

You said "he did deserve to die" and that is what i was responding to. Scroll up and read your own post.

I think it mainly is a problem with terminology, thats all.

Because if we are going to say "He didn't deserve to die" about every good person who acted recklessly at the end.......well then, how do you then REALLY distinguish even more sympathetic stories like the 7rd old girl who took a stray bullet from a drive by shooting ??? You see?

Thats why for this story, the "term" "He didn't deserve to die", is not the most appropriate thing to say.

"He did not have it coming" Thats better.

Man, that was a case of thinking one thing and writing another. I'm going to need to argue that one with God and the way it's been going, I will lose, easily.

Either way, I still compare someone who died due to their own actions is sad, but his case is still dumb. I am around quite a few firefighters who see things like this everyday and you kind of come immune to it. They say most injuries are because someone does something dumb.

I still disagree with that. Once he jumped in the bed of a moving pickup pounding on the back window, he did have it coming.

I think the better term should be, "He was finally looking good at the turn but just couldn't avoid that last hurdle."
