A tragedy that could have been avoided

So I saw a story on the news about a 16 year old being killed while trying to rob someone. I've never been a fan of murder, but I'm a firm believer in you have to suffer the consequences of your actions.


Do I feel I feel the kid deserved to die? Not really, but I also can imagine how scared the person was at the time he was being robbed.


If you decide to rob a person, you have accepted all the consequences that come along with that even if that means losing your life over something as small as a wallet.


I hate that kid's mom has to bury her son, but we all have a choice. We can do the right thing or what's wrong. I'm sure he knew robbing a person wasn't the right thing to be doing.
