I was so relieved to know Michael didn’t die alone. I met Michael through work, and spent a great deal of time with him. He was like a little brother to me, and we talked about a great many things. No, he didn’t like guns, and yes, he had issues with his eyes. We use to joke with him about it…that’s just how michael was. His service was this morning and the amount of family and friends that were there was just overwhelming. I hope the man that senselessly killed michael gets the maximum amount of time allowed. Thank you for doing all you could to help him, and for being there so he wasn’t alone when he left this life.

Today, I buried my only son, Michael James Link. I want to personally thank the people who where there by my son’s side before he passed away. This gave me comfort to know he was not alone. Our family is grief stricken and sick to heart that he was murdered by a evil thoughtless no man of god. Michael never knew people like nor did he want to and rest assured he didn’t know this no man of god has a evil murderous mind. Our lives will never be the same without Michael here among us. We hope and pray that Michael has the justice he deserves because each and everyone one of us who know Michael know he was shot in cold blood.

I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t even express it. I only wish I could have done more; I wish the world wasn’t so cruel. I’ve been contemplating trying to reach Michaels father to try and support your family as much as I can, but I don’t want to intrude or come across disrespectful, I realize that everyone is still trying to come to terms and is still grieving.. I only wish to personally show my respect and help in any way I can, and to comfort as much as possible in such an awful situation. Would it be appropriate to contact him?

It’s not local law enforcement’s call on this.
Try blaming the right party(s).
Laws are set by the legislature
Then blame the Judiciary for allowing them to post bond in accordance with the laws the Legislators passed.
