I am writing in response to The Baltimore Sun's January 17th article, "Community rallies around teen accused of killing father." I believe the women attempting to help Robert C. Richardson III are doing the right thing. They are looking past the charges the teenager faces and standing up for him after the horrific event. Maybe the boy just needed support and someone to be there for him. These women aren't jumping to conclusions or only seeing the negatives in this situation, which is what more people should do. Wouldn't you want someone to take action and support you?
