All yall talking about him

All yall talking about him dont know him or what really happened so keep your comments to yourself he lost his brother which was my boyfriend and yes heh as problems but you guys dont know. The half of it so keep your smart comments to yourself, sincerely his dear friend.

I know this young man and

I know this young man and his family. He lost his brother around six months ago. His parents are older parents who had no clue on how to raise two young children that they adopted. These two boys have been through a lot and have also put their parents through a lot. The mistake here is that these young men needed mental help from the time they were adopted and didn't receive it. My family tried very hard to talk to these young men and steer them in the right path. But ,the streets kept calling them back. It is easy for all of you haters to sit here and call people names like put the mutt down. I hope you are ready to receive your punishment when our Lord comes back to get us all. I am not going to sit here and try to convince anyone to like or accept this young man. All I can say is that all parties were drinking heavily when they were found. This story6 does not tell the whole truth here. All of these people who were hurt all knew each other and partied way to hard with one another and an argument broke out. Again, I say make alcohol ILLEGAL. It leads to this. Regardless of this young mans past and trouble he has been in, he needs mental help.

Waste of Space

This guy is a waste of space; I do not care about his or his family's problems. I am tired of paying for people like this to live in my community. I work hard everyday and losers like this walk around terrorizing us and we pick up the bill. Has never and will never contribute anything to society. Send him somewhere else where he can be someone else's problem.

A lot of people sling that

A lot of people sling that word "hater" around mighty freely. I believe if you will talk to a true Christian, you will find they love the sinner but hate the sin.
By the way, this young man has had four opportunities to see the light and correct his ways but has not taken advantage of them. He has not taken advantage of the probation system which encourages its clients to live right and walk the straight and narrow.
He has made several adult decisions and at some point in time he will have to reap what he has sown.

two items

First off you will join us by judging us as "haters" when the Lord comes back. Secondly, perhaps you could open a history book and read up on "prohibition" and how it didn't work.

he missed it

He must have missed that the crime rate is down. He has proven he lacks the ability to live in a civil society, just put this mutt down.

No worries folks!

This piece of trash, like 99.999% of the other violent offenders in our area, has a lengthy and violent arrest record. As usual, he has been treated with kid gloves and has had no motivation for stopping his criminal ways. He, like all the others, gets virtually no prison time and benefits from plea bargaining by our DA and failure to enforce parole violations by our judges and Dept. Of Corrections.

Had enough yet?


Enough with career criminals who contribute nothing to our communities. This loser will go through the system for another 20 years until he finally gets locked up for good for murder. Since we have an open border with Mexico, lets drop him off down there now and save ourselves millions of dollars. We can consider it retribution for the 11 million (officially) illegal Mexicans in our country.


We must ban Knives.
