The following are reactions from the general public posted on different social media platforms.
There isn’t a long road between what happened in Hamilton and the group fighting video. Violence needs to be sanctioned before it gets completely out of hand. Please note the victim was only 14. Too bad the parents of the perpetrators didn’t sanction their children’s behaviour far ahead of this point. Now at least two are charged with murder. Two others present have yet to be charged. Three families ruined.
Reaching out to all my Car Buddies. I’m sure you all know by now about the senseless murder of 14 yr old Devan Selvey outside Sir Winston Churchill School Monday October 7th. A dear friend of mine reached out to the family and found out he was an inspiring auto mechanic. He loved Classic, Muscle, Old and New. The Family would be grateful to have as many Classic Cars join the funeral procession as possible.
I’ll post date and time here as soon as I know. I want this child to be remembered and respected for
what would’ve been his contribution to the world. PLEASE SHARE!
