    Why don't these kids learn to just walk away? As Marilyn Milian would say it's a game of muy most macho! (possible spelling error there.)

    Former Miami Edison football player dies in University of Connecticut stabbing
    BY MANNY NAVARRO AND ANDRE C. FERNANDEZ
    mnavarro@MiamiHerald.com

    It's the type of early morning phone call no football coach ever wants to receive -- news that one of their guys is gone.

    Corey Bell, the director of football operations at the University of Miami, got one of those calls early Sunday morning as news of the stabbing death of University of Connecticut cornerback Jasper Howard began to spread.

    Bell, who coached Howard at Miami Edison High, was stunned and saddened to learn of the tragedy.

    This story is REALLY getting to me. It's so, so sad. Seems like he was a good kid, ready to be the first in his family to go to college, he plays football which is a great way to earn your way through school and then this senseless death.

    And the other thing that's bugging me, there were plenty of witnesses there, and no arrest of a suspect? Darn kids! Someone needs to do the right thing by this young man and come forward. Such a horrible loss.

    I agree, and it's even more sad that he was about to become a father. My heart, thoughts, and prayers truly go out to his family during this time. So heartbreaking. :(

    Have you ever seen The First 48, or any of those other real-life crime dramas? On there, it's the SAME way with people not coming forward to police because they're scared. If they get caught cooperating with LE or being a "snitch" and word spreads around their town, they could end up dead themselves. I remember one case where a teen was murdered at a little league football game with over 150 people who CLEARLY saw what happened, and not ONE would come forward. It made me sick. If people want to start cleaning up their neighborhoods, and the crime in them..the first step would be to cooperate with LE.

    Man I thought they'd have this wrapped up by now, with cell phone cameras, etc. and possible campus video from security cameras.

    How sad.

    Hope they find out where the threats are coming from...clue, hello!

    That's what I was hoping as well. I think it's multiple people though, personally. You see this type of thing frequently (people threatening if others "snitch" and go to cops) and it's sad, quite frankly.
