FULL TITLE: Family of teenage boy 'killed by girlfriend's father after sneaking into her bedroom' demand that SHE is charged

Family and friends of the teenage boy who was shot to death by his girlfriend's father after sneaking into her bedroom are demanding that the girlfriend be charged with accessory to murder or involuntary manslaughter.

A group of the 17-year-old Johran McCormick's supporters, including his mother Zakia McCormick and community activist Quanell X, rallied on Wednesday morning outside the home near Houston, Texas where authorities say the teenager was killed on March 13.

Investigators have said McCormick's 16-year-old girlfriend let him into the house on Bridgestone Ridge Dr. in Spring, Texas.

She might actually be guilty of something

OMG, is this going to be another Zimmerman type fiasco? Did the father shoot him in the back while the daughter pinned him down?? I can see the possibility of that scenario coming, if its anything like the GZ event. next step the victims mom has to copyright his name ASAP so the T Shirts can be printed.

The girlfriend’s father must be a white african american, otherwise Quanell X would not be involved.

Teenage boy willingly let into home by girlfriend. Dad finds out, girlfriend lies that she doesn’t know, he kills the boyfriend.

Someone is guilty of something. If it was your teenage son, I’m sure you’d agree.

While they show a picture of the boy, why not a picture of the girl - does the activist Quanell X give you any hint of what the girl looks like?

Quanell X and Zakia? Nope, not serious. Name your children normal names and America just might respond differently.

When I saw “Quanell X” I assumed that the dead kid was black and the girl was white but it looks like everyone involved is black so “racism” can't be the issue.So what's Quanell X's problem? Is he speaking truth to power in support of a young home's right to get a little whatever?

She’s guilty of being a stupid slut, but this kind of thing does not belong in criminal court.

There is a very strong case for wrongful death and it should be settled civilly.

If I was on the jury in a criminal trial and the father put forth a plausible case of "I thought my daughter was being assaulted by some young punk" I might be inclined to believe him and either vote "not guilty" or vote guilty on reckless something-or-other and vote for 3 months in prison.

Actually, when the dad confronted the boy in the daughter’s room, he asked if she knew who he was. She said no, so the dad thought his daughter was being assaulted or raped and he shot him.

The 17 year old knew he was doing something wrong, sneaking into the house. When caught he then argued with the father. He was in no position to argue, he was in a position of get the hell out, nothing more, nothing less. You don’t sneak into someone’s house and argue with them when caught at 2:30 AM.

I don’t care who he claimed invited him, he still snuck in and sought to deceive. He’s dead because he didn’t just get out, as any young man capable of shame would have done. Is the daughter guilty of something? Yes, she is. She falsely claimed she didn’t know him. Would the shooting not have occurred, had she admitted that she knew him and had actually invited him in, participating in the deception? We’ll never know.

What we do know is, the father found an unknown male in his own house in the middle of the night, the apparent intruder claimed his daughter invited him, she denied it, unknown male proceeds to argue with the father, then appeared to be reaching for a weapon. Father shot him dead. No racial angle, father is black.

If there’s any culpability here outside of the deceased, it actually is the daughter, not the father. So, they’re right to an extent, much as it dismays me to end up on the same side of a community organizer named Quanell X.

Not me. This father isn’t a danger to society and prison would be a wrecking ball paid for by taxpayers that served no useful purpose.

It’s a tragedy all the way around, but there is no public good served by prosecuting this criminally. It should be handled civilly as a wrongful death suit.

I remember this event. Daughter secretly had boyfriend over in the wee hours, son sees boyfriend hiding in her room and informs dad. Dad comes in withe weapon and catches daughter and boyfriend en flagrante. Dad asks daughter if she knows the boyfriend.

SHE DENIES KNOWING HIM.

Dad keeps weapon trained on boyfriend while he calls cops, boyfriend makes a sudden move, dad shoots boyfriend dead.

Daughter did play an active role in this. Most states could recognize her as an accomplice to some kind of manslaughter charge.

Up to the DA whether on close inspection a prosecution is warranted. Her deceit contributed to dad’s assessment that the boyfriend was an intruder and in fact rapist. Daughter could easily be charged -in most states-.

My teenage sons are now grown men—with wives and children. If they had spent their teen years unsupervised, as this boy was doing, they may not have been shot, but they would certainly not be the responsible husbands/fathers they are today.

She probably cost him his life althouigh we will never know. She tries to save herself and throws the guy under the bus so daddy shoots him. Both kids are low-lifes. Both should pay. He already paid with his life. .

Although the young man was invited by the girl,the fact that he was hiding indicates that he knew the father didn’t want him there. So,while there is plenty of blame to go around, it all goes back to the young man’s actions.

Go back and read closer. Heck, try reading even the headline.
They want the girl charged, not the father.

And absolutely this is a wrongful death and the party who brought it about was little miss drops- her-britches.

If I am on the jury, the girl pays. Pays big. Payments start when she is 18 and not a dime comes from daddy.

This seems like a move in the right direction. Women are constantly crying “rape” and getting away with it. It’s not good for the real victims of this horrific crime.

Sometimes there are consequences for actions.

The boy suffered those consequences.

The tramp daughter hopefully will be remorsefull for a long long time. That should be punishment enough

Is Quanell X related to Malcolm X?

How not to succeed in America. Give the things you breed Non American sounding names - like DaQuan, Trayvon, JaMarcus. Also, let them roam the streets all hours of the night and make sure the sperm donor is not around.

At 2 in the morning my boys are in there room unless they are camping or firefighting in the boat. If they were ever in a girl’s room at that hour, they better be married.

Exactly. This aggrieved mama sent her son off to do “spring break” in whatever town he pleased. And she’s surprised he turned up dead? I doubt it.

If my boys had spring break (they are homeschooled), they would be with me on a job site, or with my better half (to those of you in Rio Linda, a wife) or with us both. They won’t be running around at night acting like THUGS.

Legally, this is an interesting one, in that Texas law can be odd in this type of circumstance.

For example, it at least used to be the case that if a spouse returned home to find their spouse in bed with another person, if they shot and killed both of them, they could plead temporary insanity. But if they just shot one or the other, it was murder, as they were sane enough to pick just one.

In this case, there are several important facts.

First of all, the father aimed at the boy’s head. This pretty much discards any suggestion that he might have just wounded the boy. It also means that the idea that the boy *might* be armed carries less weight, in that the father “had the drop on him.”

This also leans in the direction of the father executing him out of rage.

As far as the daughter goes, I think she is pretty safe from prosecution, because she was under a high stress situation.

If I were a member of that teen aged boy's family, I would think/feel the same.

The teen aged girl lied, and while there is some indication the boy was arguing with the father, we don't know what he said to the man, or exactly when the father called 911 during the incident, as this article implied.

What an easily avoidable, horrible mess resulting in a death!
I don't envy the grand jury, and I agree that absent any proof to the contrary, that it looks now like the only way the boy's family will secure any measure of “justice” will be had via a civil case.

Such a nightmarish situation for all involved!

1) His parents had no idea what he was doing and where he was.
2) He made the decision to go over to gf’s at 2 in the morning knowing full well it was wrong.
3) One of them sweet talked the other into a midnight get together.
4) He crawled through the window like a sneak thief.
5) He hid.
6) She set him up as an intruder.
7) He went off on dad instead of being a man and saying, “sorry, sir”.
8) He made a move to possibly pull a gun on dad.

The blame falls on both the lovebirds, not the dad, but the guy put himself in that bedroom.

But her son pulled his “gun” first. You should never be creeping around in someones house after dark, the fact that a minor invited you in and you accepted gets you the stupid and dumb award.

from what I understand:

"Teenage boy willingly let into home by girlfriend. Dad finds out, girlfriend lies that she doesn’t know, boyfriend starts talking back and makes threatening moves towards armed father, he kills the boyfriend."

You left out an important step. The “boy” would not comply with the father’s demands and, with a gun trained on him, made a sudden grab for something on the floor... all after hearing the girl deny letting him in.
