Drive by thuggery

I hope they both get 20 years in the gas chamber.

best for you

uh i think you need not to worry bout what he gets and you dont need to be wanting him to get in a gas chamber. im sure you dont know the story behind all of it. so therefore stay out of it. ok? thanks!

False

I feel since it's his first offence he should been done just like SHERIFF Ron Hewett and givin a slap on the rist and then released early with good behavior. Our justice system never really serves justice, it's all about who you know and who got the most money.

first of all you don't know

first of all you don't know what kind of life he's had. Those without sin cast the first stone. OR SHUT UP !!!

What kind of life doesn't matter

If as a society we eliminate these thugs from the gene pool then eventually we won't have this problem. But for now, we will have to settle for putting his butt away for a long time. And her's too for being there. There should be no positive re-enforcement or sympathy for someone that would shoot someone or watch while it went down. And P.S.; You can yell "shut up", it is protected under the constitution just like my comment above. :Ð

You are correct

You are correct. I do not know what type of life he has had. However, I do know what type of life I hopes he has in the future. That would be a long stay in prison. Someone like this does not need to be on the street. He got a gun before the shooting, so he knew what he was doing.....

Here is a boulder for you

He is nothing but a thug. He shot another person in the face. We should just hug him and tell him he is great. No, he is a criminal, has a long criminal history (I put some of his crimes up but WWAY won't post for fear of offending a criminal) If he is so wonderful, let him stay with you.

Stones away......

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see exactly what happened here. Common sense, which he has none, should be screaming that this action isn't gonna turn out well for him. His reaction must have been.... HUH? I don't give a rats furry behind about what kind of life he has had. If it was all that bad, and he had any gut to him at all, he would strive to rise above the bad and want to create better. But no.... If you lack basic "human" characteristics then you will never amount to a hill of beans period and will continue to show up in mug shots or finally a coroners report if society is lucky.

Doesn't matter what type of

Doesn't matter what type of life he had. A bad life does not make it acceptable to do a drive-by shooting on someone. I may have sinned in my life, but I've never tried to shoot and kill anyone either. So yes, I feel I can cast a stone (in the form of an opinion) on this subject. Finally, this is a message board where we are supposed to post our opinions if we'd like. So no, I will not shut up.

second of all

You would not feel this way if it had been your son or daughter that was shot in the face and possible be DEAD!

I never shot anyone without legal justification...

...so can I throw a brick? Who CARES what kind of life he's had???? There is no justification whatsoever this kind of behavior. Even if he had absolutely no spiritual, theological, or ethical training in his life, he HAS to have seen a TV show and thought, "If I do that kind of stupid behavior, I'm going to prison." Here's hoping that the judicial system crushes him....but don't worry....this is North Carolina, "Land of the Enablers and Saps"....he won't pull much time....we wouldn't want to be mean to him....

if you don't like nc go back

if you don't like nc go back to where you came from nobody asked or told you to come here

I've probably lived here longer than you

...and our structured sentencing and lenient attitude toward criminals is NOTHING to be proud of.

what a surprise

this stuff makes me sick! low-life thugs.

Shooting

Please don't slap him and her on their hands and say "poor children" they must have had a rough life growing up. You can look in his eyes and tell he ain't no-good.

RIGHT IS RIGHT & WRONG IS WRONG

HE KNOWS RIGHT FROM WRONG IM SURE. DONT MATTER IF SOME ONE OWES YOU MONEY,STOLE FROM YOU WHAT EVER, THATS WY WE HAVE POLICE, JUDGES, LAWERS ECT. TO PROTECT AND SERVE.. MABE HE WAS TAKEN THE LAW IN HIS OWN HANDS BECAUSE HE WAS DONE WRONG. DONT MATTER. TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT. GOD GIVES US FREE WILL. HE CHOSE TO DO WRONG. NOW HE WILL HAVE TO ANSWER FOR HIS CRIME. THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS EYE FOR AN EYE TOOTH FOR A TOOTH.. SO MABE THEY SHOULD SHOOT HIM IN THE FACE. THEN LET HIM GO. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Hope I'm the foreman for this jury

I have yet to not put one away yet. And I have always been the foreman.
