He not locked up for missing sunday school. Truth is he probally died trying to rape another inmate. Happy holidays and rest in peace. I sur it going to be more peacful with you gone.

When do we get the rest of the story?

You are apparently a soul with know heart. How could you be so cruel to this poor soul and their family. This is someones son, brother, uncle, father or family member. How would you feel if this was one of your relatives? From your attitude; I don't think God would be very happy with you. I hope for your sake you were just drunk and did not realize what you typed. Where is your heart? Apparently you do not have one!

Some people held there have only been charged, not proven guilty. It could've been natural causes anyways. I am definitely with you that there are people on this planet that it seems we'd be better off without though.

Who cares? If they are in jail then obviously they were a mence to society. Less taxes to keep the scumbag alive is what I say.

I only hope at some point you get charged and held even though you are innocent. People always quick to run people into the ground when accused of a crime without giving credence to the mistakes that are made on a daily basis. Let me be the first to inform you. Mistake are made in Brunswick County. Did you know 99% of all cases presented to the Grand Jury in BC are indicted? Sounds like a lot of room for error if you ask me. Tell me any other state run program that operates at 99% without error. I hope one day you are able to rise above your ignorance.

Sorry you not well informed on how things work in the world today. Maybe when you grow up you will!! And you really need God in your life . How you never make a mistake!!!!

Most of the things wrong in society today are caused by those who have formed the opinion of "Who cares".

Sure am glad you are not related; because I would be so ashamed of you. How sad is your life that you have no compassion for someone. This is someones son, brother, child, or family member. Of all times to be so heartless. We are so lucky to have such a loving and caring God. I pray the holidays will change your heart and you will have compassion for Gods children. You are one of his children as well. Think about that for awhile before you open your mouth again.

From Guestwithaheart: "This is someones son, brother, child, or family member."

So since he mastered the ability to be born we should feel sorry for him? That argument holds no merit when the hood thug defenders try to use it and it doesn't work in this case either.

Guesty, what makes you so sure about this? No further information has been published on this death yet. Are you working with insider information or just prematurely ejaculating your usual venom?

I'm sure he was somebody's son and child, otherwise we wouldn't be having this discussion. How could he exist if he wasn't somebody's son and child? The basis is, everybody is somebody's child so to cry for a criminal because of that fact alone is useless. Can you figure that out now GuestUsed2B99x?

>criminal because of that fact
>because of that fact
>that fact

Care to share your facts with us. Because you are charged does not imply guilt. And before its claimed I am a friend, relative, or somehow connected to the deceased I am not. I am not delusional enough to believe that law enforcement is above making a mistake or even quick to lock a person up for little or nothing. Matter of fact I would trust the public at large before I trust law enforcement simply because the court system is nothing more than a business. If you think they are there to protect and serve then you have not been paying attention to the current state of affairs in this country.

Guesty, to back-quote your premise in the post above:

"So since he mastered the ability to be born we should feel sorry for him? That argument holds no merit when the hood thug defenders try to use it and it doesn't work in this case either."

FIRST, you asked a question: "...we should feel sorry for him?"

NEXT, you provided a compound answer to the question you asked.

Consistent with your personal beliefs you claim: "That argument holds no merit when...defenders try to use it AND it doesn't work...either."

Your sentence is clear before the "AND". You state that the ARGUMENT is without merit. That's what you believe and I nor anyone else have any legitimate reason to question you on that.

The big BUT that needs to be exposed here is the conjoining of the phrase "it doesn't work in this case either."

The lack of clarity in your expression can be shown in answering EITHER of these questions which may be inferred from your statement.

Did you add the end phrase to additionally EMPHASIZE your position or did you add the end phrase to project vilifying characteristics on the person who died in custody?

Because my business partners and I are of different faith traditions we generally choose a secular charity for an annual contribution. Thanks to you, we chose Project Innocence!

It appears you believed the lie your mother told you that you are special. Take your tiara off and join the rest of the world and grasp this simple concept; many times criminal defenders attempt to make the excuse for criminals that they "are somebody's child, brother, sister...etc" My post is a simple one of, isn't everybody somebody's child? Well, except for you since I'd imagine your parents disowned you as a disappointment.
You really should seek profession mental help.

Profession mental help.... gee, "guesty" your diction is defective again. The point that you fail to grasp in these exchanges is that ALL the NEWS REPORT says that an inmate died in custody.

None of us, not guestwithaheart, you or I know who the decedent is or what the conditions were to explain why he was being held in jail.

You are the one inferring the worst with your gangster and thug baloney rhetoric. It is you who need the time with a mental health professional to try to find out the cause for your stalking and abusively attacking people whose names and conditions make them unfortunate enough to be a part of a news item reported on this forum.

Be well, hateful and angry person or at least try to get better.

Once again, my statement of it doesn't matter that he was a child, a son or any other type of family member since everybody is a family member in some way, shape or form. You have no choice over it, you can be made an aunt and have nothing to do with it. It really is too bad simple concepts seem to escape you. Maybe you could ask a child to explain it to you since I seem to be over your head.
I don't care why he was in jail, the simple fact that he was there is enough for me. Sorry, I provide no quarter for criminals.

In closing, here again is what Guestwithaheart said "This is someones son, brother, child, or family member." really doesn't matter one bit.

hey guys listen tto your selves I was on my way home from work a few years ago and went through a roadblock and was detained do to my name for a charge in a different city in nc and was held for 21 days til a man came from that city to court and stood in front of a judge and said this wasnt her and they wouldnt even give me a bond so how are we to judge and i had never even had a traffic ticket......... so i guess i deserved to be there God help you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear, you needn't apologize. Fortunately, the Constitution does provide for some things you may find inconvenient, like the rights of a defendant.

You have already "presumed" past a couple minor steps in the process like a trial and possible conviction and already have convicted this decedent. I continue to maintain that this defendant along with EVERY other defendant is entitled to the benefit of the presumption of innocence.

Truthfully, sweetheart, I don't think you'd provide a quarter for your own mother if she were starving on a street corner.

I see simple concepts still escape you. I do enjoy you trying to flirt with me with your pet names, but I'm married.
Anyway, I'd give my mother a quarter just like I currently one to give yours.

Sure am glad you are not related; because I would be so ashamed of you. How sad is your life that you have no compassion for someone. This is someones son, brother, child, or family member.

Ahh....nothing like the spirit of the holidays.

Rest in Peace.

Why can't the SBI investigate why all the drunks in Brunswick County Get out of a DWI? The drunks know that so that is why they keep doing it all the time. Just on DEC 6 a man on Oak Island hit two people and ran one lady was 80 years old the cops tazed him he was charged with felony hit and run charges dropped i don't understand. This was his 2 DWI in three years. Jon David you are not keeping up with your promise. I was talking to this guy the other day at food lion he was laughing at the court system he said it's a joke.

Why in the world would you say something stupid like that? What if it was a member of your family? Every person in jail is not always guilty.
