If you know so much, why are you not giving your account of what took place?? Is it because your a coward? Maybe involved in illegal activities yourself? Maybe a CI for the police? You don’t want to,”roll” on your buddy? What is it that makes you think in any way shape or form is it acceptable to take someone’s life?? Are you a murderer as well who just hasn’t been caught? What is ut? Who are you, and how do you have any connection to this?? Or are you a coward alsi who wont speak… Read more »

If you know so much, why wouldn’t you say something more than money was owed. Who owed the money specifically? How much was owed?

Don’t make a vague comment if you have no idea what you are talking about.

You don’t know how it happened, you don’t know what happened, you don’t know a lot about people even when you think you know everything. Randy was a loyal dude, he always did good by me this ain’t have to happen this way I’m sure but it did and saying he a godless scum bag and hoping he burns in hell isn’t very Godly in it of itself. Randy was a good dude not a cold blooded murderer. Only god can judge him not you people. I’m sorry for the family of Michael.

I wish more than anything that moment did not happen, however since it did it I am thankful… Read more »

I was the first person to his side right before he died and I while heartedly regret that I couldn’t stop it before it happened, I looked into Michaels eyes right before he died and I know he was shoot down in cold blood. It was absolutely the single most selfish and stupid act. I hope randy gets the chair. Michael died in mine and my wife’s arms as we tried to help him. Before all of you hood rats try and defend randy, let me ask you this, if he were such a good person why would he shoot… Read more »
