Your posts are laughable! Are you a “hunting buddy” afraid you won’t have somewhere to hunt? You need new friends. Just remember when you lay down with dogs you will wake up with fleas!

You may say you know Jay, but obviously you have not seen
His violent behavior. Jay has acted out with friends
and family as long as I have known him. I’ve never wished ill will
on anyone!! This is and was not a surprise to me or those that know
the true Jay.

I can not believe that people can slander, judge, and criticize others. No matter how flat the pancake is, there are 2 (TWO) sides. Do not set your sights too low.

Were you there either? And if many of his neighbors are saying basically the same thing, there might be something to it.

THIS CONFRONTATION OCCURRED IN MR. BURNEY’S DRIVEWAY. So obliviously the person with road rage was the “victim.” Think about what you would do if you pulled in your driveway, and found that someone had followed you home, and you now find yourself involved in a “road rage” incident. I wasn’t there and don’t know what happened, BUT I THINK IT IS A CRITICAL POINT THAT THIS “ROAD RAGE” INCIDENT TOOK PLACE IN MR. BURNEY’S DRIVEWAY.
