  1. My Name is Randy Archuleta and I live in Ogden Utah and my heart and prays go out to all of you that are grieving.
    I live in a state that Spanish-speaking people or drake skin I look at as dirt to the your precious white young police the aren’t respected and sure wouldn’t put there life’s in danger for a child of color or anyone else cowering in the cars and behind a badge and gun they will accuse and beat and do what it takes to make our children parents and anyone of color other then white. And to me that’s what it looks like they cowering behind there lies they let those children alone and the teachers defenseless against a gunman that never had any caring for another human life. I feel your pain and I wish I could find a wish any wish I would wish this never happen .
