Readers Write: Justice for victim of gang violence


The verdict is in and five members of the Trinitarios gang were found guilty of killing Lesandro “Junior ” Guzman-Feliz.

Justice has prevailed but it is bittersweet. A young innocent young man of 15 years old was killed for no reason.

A message has been sent out and that the days of gangs are numbered and those who commit such egregious acts will face justice.

Added to that they can run but they cannot hide. Junior, as he was known by friends, had much to offer but had his life cut short and is still missed by friends and family and will never be forgotten.

Those who killed him will face the rest of their lives in jail to think about the evil they had done.
