  4. the way I see it, there are 3 kinds of people that live in lakewood. the orthodox, the hardworking under paid hispanics ( mostly illegal), and the hard core gangstas

  5. No more rice n beans for u pa pa rot in hell Steven rosado u caused a lot of pain to the Copes Family and everyone around or close to Kevin all we have is our memories left of a Kool man

  6. keep the group together huh? the same group that orchestrated his murder!! sleeping dogs!! your so called friends are your real enemies. take this lesson- NO ONE IS YOUR FRIEND

  7. I learned Kevin was a good guy. My son went to school w/ him since grammar school & had nothing bad to say about him. It came as a complete shock, as they had recently spoke on the phone & Kevin was excited about working on a record deal. It’s pretty apparent that people who knew Kevin felt the same way.My heartfelt sympathies go out to the friends & family of such a handsome, talented guy. my question is why the hit then?

  8. The violence needs to stop!! Kev was such a respectful man to the older adults he will truly be missed praying for his family

  9. This was NOT gang related!! To everyone on here bad mouthing this poor boy..get your facts straight. He was a sweet boy who stayed out of trouble. May he rest in peace and his family find strength in the memories you will always have of him.

  10. Steven is my cousin and my prayers got out to kevins family and friends. i havent talked to steven in a long time but i always told him that if he didnt stop that (moderated) that he would mess up his life and look not only did he mess up his own life but a young mans life too and the people around him. its sad. no matter wat family is family ima love ma family but its just sad that i was once so close to Steven and within a few years he turned into this.

  11. Rip kev copes, but on the same note i believe get rite truly didnt mean to do this! I was with him on a daily basis and i can tell that he could look dangerous to you but i know him. Keep ya head up bro!

  12. Everyone is goin to have an opinion. That is that ,now the truth in the matter is 3 young men have lost thier lives,mothers & fathers have lost thier kids,brothers & sisters have lost a siblings ,lives in all ways have been forever changed & none ina positive way, learn to live n help to help all these babies learn to live,life is too short , and our babies are all loosing thier lives,may god bless all three families

  13. R.i.p to d young men who lost thier lives n are now with god , and to the young man who has also has lost his life to the prison system . Three lives were taken

  14. It was a senseless tragedy that should have never ever been I hope that judge hits Steven rosado aka get rite hard lock him up and throw the key away whoever sayin free that (moderated) is very crazy free nothin let him sit there think about how much pain n suffering he has caused for Kevin copes family & friends.
