    Igrew up with Stacey and his sister and I am so sad by what he has done,His family and I lived next door to each other for a long period of time and I know that something had to have happen in his life for him to turn to this...His father was a preacher and his mom was a devoted mother to him and his sister...this makes me so sad to see his life come to this.

    This guy could obviously have learned a few things from Forest Gump. Wow. That is pretty sad - huh. No wonder he isn't smiling like most of his cousins are in their mug shots.

    HAHAHA. Wow it is great to know they have a suspect in the Lafayette Oaks Cases. My ex lives in the neighborhood and neighbors were convinced he did it and were harassing him at his doorstep. I'm sure he would love an apology!!

    Stacey...you are dumber than dirt. Any thief is dumber than dirt, but you take the cake. To bad the chief didn't take you out of your misery.

    PAstor Holmes has a history of being involved in matters beyond the church. He is an ardent supporter and contributor to Bill Proctor who sets an example of not paying taxes for years, is a avowed racist, commits 206 election law violations and on and on. Why should he expect his son to obey the law?

      What does that have to do with this situation? Your assertion of baseless and false facts is ridiculous and has no place here.

      Which fact is baseless? Holmes support of Proctor? Proctor's published comments against Hispanic workers? Or is the IRS Tax Liens from 1998 to present a fact that you dispute. The 206 election law violations and 82,000 dollar unpaid fine....Are you disputing that? I guess you endorse the examples the young thugs followed by breaking the law and trying to rob homes. At least Britt had the courage to state his name along with indisputable factual information.

    Or just use your brain and think logically. For example: If I break the law, I could go to prison. Conclusion: don't break the law.

      Your not thinking like a Thug. To a Thug it is "get caught I could go to prison, so don't get caught".
