@Monique Lopez, that was the most ignorant comment I have read in awhile, the Reyes family should pay for HIS funeral and the medical costs of the children shot and therapy and counceling for every student and teacher on that playground, SINCE THEIR WAS NO EVIDENCE OF THIS KID BEING BULLIED!!

It's because he was a hero, running towards danger to save childrens lives, not a coward like the two of you.

Enough already... Please explain why the money is badly-needed? I'm pretty sure he left his family well-off & I'm damn sure his funeral was paid for by kind-giving folks. It's too bad he was killed for no good-dirty reason, but c'mon....What about all the other murder victims in the area,why don't you people fund-raise for them as well who badly need the money.
