Sorry to hear man. I was hoping he'd live to laugh about it later on.

His truck is parked right where it happened. We all wrote on a big poster and taped it by the road. We all wrote on his truck on the green racing stripes. Slimy ass reporter crept up on us and then called her camera guy. He definitely lived life to the fullest and was the most outspoken and funniest kid you could have ever met. Never ever forgotten.

Rough fucking weekend. Friday night went to his best friend's house til 3 in the morning, saddest thing ever. Saturday night went to his shrine, where it all happened, there was like 100 people there. Was there from like 7 pm to 1:30 am. Sunday I'm going to go buy a blue Kansas City hat cause it's got KC on it, and that was his name. School on monday.. gonna be so rough. Funeral on wednesday, skippin school to go. Grad in a few weeks, schools buying all grad students a KC hat like the one i'm getting and I think we are going to chuck them up in the air instead or in addition to the grad hats. Still can't believe this shit happened..

I'm sorry about your friend, but this should be a lesson to others who might attempt this stupid stunt

Wow..............
The news stations need to fuck off.
KC's death has been the top story every news hour and front page in the newspapers. "Controversy" as to how we are grieving. We spray painted the road where it happened and set up a memorial by a Canada Post mail box. First of all, the spray paint isn't permanent so fuck off. Second, when people there say they don't want to be on the news crying, they don't want to be on the fucking news. Thinking we are over-grieving when "experts" are saying it's normal. Only people who are bitching is the old fucks who live close there lying saying we are loud and are tagging everything up. It's on the pavement, not their property. The city doesn't care too too much about the pavement because it will come off, knowing the rain we've been getting could be pretty soon. People are coming by into a crowd of consistently 50+ kids and saying we should clean up, yeah good luck, keep walking. The news is making a big deal about the city having to pay 3500 bucks for clean up, big fuckin' whoop my computer is worth more than that. The only reason the old people who bitch constantly are bitching is because they refuse to understand that the spray paint isn't permanent and will come off, and that if they hear how we occasionally talk, and how I've typed saying fuck a lot, they automatically assume that we are being abusive and aggressive. I've heard older people who seem innocent swear more than I do. Just pisses me off about the constant bitching because of the generation gap, because no one under the age of like 40 really cares as long as we don't turn aggressive, it's all older senile people who call the cops. They say we are being loud... why would we be loud and rambunctious at a memorial for the nicest kid ever. We aren't loud, we are just skateboarding and playing music out of a car, not even loud at all.
I realize I've been rambling and that you guys probably don't care a lot, I just feel I needed to say this.
We have made a scholarship fund in his honor for our school.
If you want to read more just search Regina, Saskatchewan 17-year-old death on google or something.
Also, his funeral is on Wednesday and there is expected to be 1000+ attending. Guarantee it's going to be on the news, and none of us are wearing black, just our Kansas City (KC) hats and bball jerseys.

Now global news has footage of a couple of my friends cussing the reporter out telling them to leave, and they are putting that on the news to show that we are "aggressive."

Funny how they didn't use on the clip of the reporter actually slapping my friend in the face. Straight disrespectful.

Can't the police department give you some help with this? I've been through exactly what you're going through when I was a senior in high school and we had it setup on the side of a very busy main road. The PD put an extra cruiser out there every night to slow people down and put cones up along side the road to force traffic away. And anyone that wasn't supposed to be there or causing a problem was dealt with quickly and quietly.

My best advice for handling the media slime is completely ignore them. If they ask question or try to talk to you guys, don't even acknowlege their existence. Pretend they aren't there and blow them off. No reaction, no comment, no acknowlegement equals no story and no news. They'll go away and find something else to do.

The police only respond to the complaints by the residents. The cops have been driving by quite a few times a day to see if we are drinking or vandalizing property. We had slow down signs and orange barricade thingers but the cops took them. Seems like the cops aren't doing shit, and the stuff they are doing is against us.
It's hard to ignore the media because they are so persistent and in need of that next story.
I also read an article on Global's website which spelled his name wrong even though KC was center in their picture. They said that the police has warned us to clean up the whole area or else face vandalism charges, not the case... we were told to clean up one thing and we did, nothing else cleaning up. They really need to get their facts straight before calling it "news." Everyone at school, teachers included, agree with what we are doing. My principal is being a total d-bag though because he got a sign we put up to be towed away, he said that we could have KC's truck parked out front on the grass, he ordered his family to come and take it away less than 2 hours after saying it would be there all day.
A lot of emotion and anger, but that's what happens I guess.
