if you don't know him how can you judge him he was one of the nicest people you could ever meet he would give the shirt off his back and drop anything for his family and friends so your going to judge him by how he looks just so you know he had way more class then you and his family is a good loving family maybe your family should have raised you with more respect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Theresa Pinks December 30, 2012 at 11:09 PM

Robert was a good person and friend and was part of my family. He was always there for me when we needed help. Why did you add that last sentence into the article? Don't assume things. And for all the SO called friends that say "Not Surprised " Shut the "HELL UP". Wish we could attend the vigil but we are out of state. REST IN PEACE ROBERT. You will be missed.

Saying that there is nothing for kids to do in Livermore is asinine. There is a plethora of entertainment now just as there was when a decade ago when I was in school the same time as Robert. I feel bad for his son, who will have to have a lot of questions answered when he gets older. Prayers for those left behind.

To all who attended we thank you for your support. Also me and Ash are collecting donations for the family so that we may proceed with a memorial service and possibly a burial. Ash can be contacted through Facebook or you can contact us by phone. Again thanks for all the support.

to the uncle, your gang related history paved the way for this young man's future and early death. If you deny this you are only lying to yourself. Making "bad choices" is understandable, joining gangs to cause death and destruction is more than making a couple "bad choices."
KMS December 31, 2012 at 10:37 AM
For everyone on here that's commenting negatively about Robert, you have no idea who he really is. He was a great person. He loved and cared about his family & friends so much & we all felt the same way. Do you not realize that we his family are reading all of your comments? Do you just not care? This is not the time or place to leave all of your negative & hateful remarks. There are a lot of people devastated right now & you have nothing better to do then spread hate online. I guarantee none of you would have the courage to say anything to his family or friends faces. You all can hide behind your computers, but know that whether or not people find out who you are, you will regret what you said. Karma will get you back.
KMS December 31, 2012 at 10:45 AM
libertus_rebelium, justinbro, anotherlivermoron...You would never have the nerve to say this to anyones face. Does it make you feel better coming online and speaking badly on someone who just lost their life? Robert didn't deserve to die. We didn't deserve to lose him. How would you feel if people were speaking badly on your loved one? You are all pathetic and need to seek GOD.
Cs December 31, 2012 at 05:26 PM
You know what KMS, no they don't know and if that young man didn't make the right choices in life, he will make an account for the way in which he lived his life with his maker, however, no one and I mean NO ONE has the right to take that man's life. Period. Those who have nothing constructive to say somehow are no better than those who took his life. What a f.....cken evil seed. This shit makes me sick! Really. I seriously can't believe how stupid people are and how poor our state of being has become. Oh! I don't mean state, as in CA, but state as in "The particular condition that someone or something is in at a specific time."
Cs December 31, 2012 at 05:32 PM
Absolutely true, one of the more warranted comments on this forum.
u.r.dumb December 31, 2012 at 07:54 PM
Your remarks about race are amusing. I bet if we had a white gang around Livermore the police would take notice as well, but for now it is just you stupid beaners running wild. Growing up in a bad neighborhood doesn't mean you are doomed, it just means you are weak and succumb to the peer pressure. Congratulations on your spelling and articulating.
AnotherLiverMoron December 31, 2012 at 10:19 PM
Ooh is it getting heated in here or what...? REST IN PEACE is what was meant to be posted. REST IN PEACE
willisfittin January 01, 2013 at 04:00 AM
Rest in peace Robert.... watch over all of us out here on these streets. Make sure we are safe and guide us on the right path
chemmsjul January 01, 2013 at 05:51 PM
Plenty to do in this town as libertus said. If we have a commitment to families and live by a creed of taking care of one another and loving one another then maybe things like this would not happen. We need to stop glorifying "guns, gangs, and badness" - the kids think this is cool and they turn to this. Let us give them something "good" to emulate.
Ash January 01, 2013 at 08:11 PM
R.I.P Lil Rob!! Your forever loved!! We miss you!!
shannon McCart January 02, 2013 at 07:36 AM
RIP Robert, we got your back down here. Don't you worry, everybody talks and Livermore is not that big. The truth will come forward and justice will be served. It's a shame that some of us already know who it is. :( but are to scared to say a word. But I promise you this, it will happen and that person will talk.
Cs January 02, 2013 at 04:51 PM
I'm not a beaner, and see there you go "It's just you stupid beaners running wild" that's racism right there, that was your thought initially all I did was bring it to light... ignorant a** I grew up in a bad neighborhood and this is my point. I have a job I raised two kids, just fine, both graduated, off to college, come from a family with two parents. All people in the ghetto are not beaners or blacks, or puerto ricans lotta white trash too ;) Believe! This is a forum to discuss the topic not to slander the slain, wtf! Grow up! You know what you play tit you get tat..simple sh*t and no the police would not be that hard up to bust a "white gang", because it would probably be composed of their family members and really there would never be a white gang per se, they more often than not, form to offend by the race, so this is real talk here. And plus, open your mind take a look at Mikey's comments, if you don't find those offensive your cut from the same cloth, and really you probably are Mikey posted as U.R. Dumb...
trishar January 02, 2013 at 09:39 PM
well said Shann <3
speak up January 02, 2013 at 09:49 PM
So if you love him so much why wouldn't you come forward and tell police who did this? Don't you think that's a little unfair to your friend that you say didn't deserve to be shot to death? Don't you think that's its unfair that his killer is running the streets freely while he is no longer here? Don't you want closure for his family? Apparently not if his so called friends aren't stepping up and being a true friend and really having his back. That's the problem....all talk no action which is why this country has turned to shit. STEP UP!
FRANKIE STARK January 02, 2013 at 10:44 PM
People need to speak up. Let the court system charge the Person, everyone know's who they think did this (can't ever say the word) Murder of Robert :'( ... We can't have it unsolved and need to "RESPECT Robert" and have this person account for the terrible crime. I loved Robert he will always be part of my Family. Part of my family is missing. Love you Robert .. Rest In Peace..
Bree January 03, 2013 at 02:58 AM
Rest in Peace Lil Rob <3 I just barley met you and now your gone, but you were a true friend to me and the people I care about and I know you were a good person no matter what is being said by all these fucked up people are commenting. Every time I saw you, you were talking about your son, or your mom and family. You had my back when I needed someone and you didn't even know me that well yet. Really respectful and a caring person. I just seen you less than 2 days before you passed.. Gonna be missed. And everyone needs to stop posting fucked up stuff on here.. no one deserves to be killed... Rest in peace Rob... much love ..
Bree January 03, 2013 at 03:45 AM
Does anyone have anymore updates? I'd like information on when and where the services will held. So sad....
Troy Duncan January 03, 2013 at 08:56 AM
RIP Robert ..
Theresa Pinks January 04, 2013 at 08:29 AM
very well said!!!! rob did not deserve this and he was a good person.... my heart goes out to you and his family
Stella B January 04, 2013 at 09:48 AM
Hey everyone spread the word please, They still need donations for the funeral, anything will help. Chase bank under Rachael Supnet or contact Ashley Harding or Zach Diaz. Come on people, please, He deserves a funeral, doesn't everyone? RIP Robert I will miss you much
Troy Duncan January 04, 2013 at 05:12 PM
The Government Has A Special "Victims Of Violent Crimes" Fund They Pay To Help With Families For Funeral Costs. Someone Close To Rachael Needs To Help Her File A Claim, I Think They Pay Around $7,500 To help Pay For Funeral.. I Will Post The Link Below.. RIP Robert http://vcgcb.ca.gov/resources.aspx
