      he just tried to hurt someone. and he thought about it while he was getting patched up. what ever his motive was he tried to shoot someone, and unless someone was breaking into his home or something like that he was WRONG. he is however in my prayers, and i don't know him.

      Yeah. Right Tammie. That is why the CAREER CRIMINALS task force went after him - because he is not a bad person. Which makes me wonder . . what do you define as a bad person? Someone who works for a living, is not willing to kill for crack, and isn't a habitual offender?

    Not a bad person? Are not our actions what determines if we are "bad" or "good"? A few generations ago, people worked hard everyday, if you didn't have, you did without; you had to work to eat. I can ride through Stratford at anytime and see capable men doing nothing, but appear to be dressed and fed. Is there really that many men who work at night jobs and have energy to cause trouble during the day? Where does your friend get money for a shotgun and shells?

      thank you for this...the bible says if a man don't work he don't eat. A REAL MAN has some sort of sense of pride and wants to take care of himself and his family....honestly. I get tired of hearing excuses about living a hard life. I did too. it just motivated me to do better for me and my kids, not live off the system and complain about not having anything, not stand around selling drugs, etc. etc. people don't take pride in themselves like they used to.

    Well Doeboy. You're right about a lot of lame comments. I'm sure yours will top the list as the lamest. A good guy? He's a career criminal. He shot at his friend with a shotgun. (luckily he missed) I lost my mother a long time ago and haven't yet tried to kill some one. He didn't snap he left the original scene, thought about it and came back with a shotgun... That's premeditation not snapping. People these days do not even have the simplest of communication skills and absolutely have no regard for human life. Not even their own. He had to know there were dire consequences for his actions. Now he'll spend most of the rest of his life in prison. I know I don't want him on the streets where he could kill some one because they looked wrong at him. Lock him up with the rest of the animals.

      i agree he was shame and had to come back to show everyone he had "heart" the only problem is, if he had a heart he wouldn't try to shoot anyone. he certainly was "standing his ground"

    i know people are going to have alot of lame comments but he was a close friend of mine for a long time...i know he is not a bad person at all....the only thing i can wonder is what would have happened that would have made his mind snap like cant be because he got beat up...hes had a hard life and he lost his mom about 7 yrs ago...he is a real good guy im sorry that his life hit this praying for you tony
