Who said that religion allows murder?????(NO ONE)And for you thinking tha t he was comfy for the past 4 years.....WAKE UP WOMAN.

He believes that he saved his daughter, and he is not the only one. How far would a parent go to save there child... Well we should all know ones answer if you are a good loving parent. Along with many others...I would do anything to save my children.

One more thing...do you know any drug dealers???? They are the most manlipulating people,(BUT REALLY NICE PEOPLE LOL) Yeah right...all those drug dealers think about are who will be there next victim. How MANY lives did James tant by his drug dealings....and how many lives ended because of him?????

My heart goes out to the Walker family...Hang in there we believe in all of you.

I assure you he was more comforatable than James!!You can all beleive he SAVED his daughter....but by his choices his children live with out him!!I am a Great Loving parent i will not teach my children that it is ok to take the law in to your own hands ever....why because there is consequences to these actions!!I to would do anything for my children...which means i would not jepordize having to go to jail and not be with them.
No i don't know any drug dealers nor do i plan to....my point is he was a person who would of been dealt with by the law in due time know one knows he may of got help one day to.Kim Walker is a murderer which would fall in to the same catagory as a drug dealer in my opinion no matter what the circumstances are.Do i feel bad for the Walker Family yes of course i do ..i understand the love for a child......but he did something illegal Too!!
Individuals like Kim Walker, as few as their numbers are, take justice into there own hands because they believe the "system" will let them down - that the defendant will not be subjected to the appropriate punishment. Those individuals must also believe that the same system is not capable of prosecuting them if they were to commit a vigilante act. "Since nothing will happen to the defendant," they must think, "nothing will likewise happen to me."
Anyone who is a victim of a heinous crime will experience feelings of rage and a desire to retaliate. Almost all of them do not act out on there desires. Why not? Why don't they act like Kim Walker? The only legitimate answer is that most folks have the appropriate respect for our system of criminal justice.
Let's face it. If a victim did not have faith in the system, the streets would be a war zone of crime victims seeking revenge. But it is the criminal justice system that prevents that from happening. Crime victims, simply put, fear the system that they must rely upon to prosecute their victimizer.
Vigilantes desperately want to avoid thinking of themselves as victims, so they become victimizers themselves. Vigilantes ultimately become criminals, and they also must rationalize their criminal behavior in the strongest terms possible -- self-defense, social defense, natural law, religion, honor --- all the time claiming that they are engaging in the most law-abiding behavior or duty there is -- the duty to preserve the sacred right to protect one's self. It is a frontier ethic of survival and self-responsibility. If no one else will do anything, especially the legal system, then it is the red-blooded duty of any honest person to act, to kill-or-be-killed, to take a stand and do one's part.

Oh heck NO! He ain't no hero by taking a life! Oh no, definitely not in my books.

There were many other ways to settle the dispute between his daughter & her bf. But killing someone DOES NOT make anything better.

He'd be living with that guilt while sitting in the slammer and soon (possibly) come to realize "Oh my, I did do wrong!"

you "good" parents out there that say killing a drug dealer is wrong....GET A BRAIN...I wouldn't give a shit if I had to go to jail to protect my kid from someone hurting them to the point their life was in danger, if you love them enough you don't think or care what the consequences are for yourself, you do everything to get them away from the danger, and in this case the danger was that drug dealer. You "good" parents who say otherwise are selfish, you shouldn't have kids.

Yes i am a Great parent..I am not the only one who knows it is wrong to Murder someone!!The Law says it is!!That is why Kim Walker is in Jail.The fact that James was dealing drugs should not come in to effect..he was a human being.Kim Walker killed a unarmed man...in his own home!
My brain is entitled to my own opinion i have not said you were wrong once in beleiving KIM WALKER is a Hero...He will never be mine sorry!!
As a responsible and dedicated parent that i am i DO think about the consequences are for myself and my children...that is what being a good parent is about...teaching your children to make good choices by leading a good example and standing behind them no matter what.... lets say by not going to jail would be a great start...so that i can be at home protecting and teaching them about the dangers of the world...i will not kick them out to have to go live with the DANGEROUS people!!!
Not to Mention Children whose parents are incarcerated are five to six times more likely to be incarcerated than are their peers. They are inadvertent victims of their parents’ crimes and many find themselves deprived emotionally, socially, and financially—particularly when a parent is incarcerated.

First of all, I really feel sorry for the Mom from yorkton.... she has such great trust in our Law and legal system. LOL LOL....they never did there job....Mr. Hayward was being investigated, and the cops new he was a drug dealer ....he should have been in Jail long before Mr. walker got to him, and before Hayward messed up Jadah. When the cops were called to the Walker family house prior to the shooting...Our great men in uniform, our protecters, our great law inforcers, told the Walkers to show there daughter tough love and kick her out. Look what the outcome was. Our system not only failed the Walkers.....but also thousands of others who's lives were affected, ruined or ended by Hayward the drug supplier (you call him a victim) We all know that when Mr. Walker put a stop to Hayward, he did the city of Yorkton a favor. Mr. Walker not only saved his daughter but also many other people. Do you think that just because you are not in jail makes you a good parent....really....a good parent is Kim Walker. And if you think he is such a bad parent....look at Jadahs life now....she is drug free and living her life thanking her father for saving her.

Please do not feel sorry for me..i never once said i thought James was a great person.I don't want to live in a world were the laws are made by people like Kim Walker and you!I have stated before that i beleive in time he would be in jail.If the police told my parents about tuff love i assure you there version would of been to drag me to the other side of the earth!Not to kick me out!

If you are implying i am a bad parent and Kim Walker is a good one...god help us all!

Hello i have not killed some one in cold blood in there own home ...while unarmed.

I am at a loss why people think i am bad for seeing Murder as wrong...cause that is what i beleive!!

I am sure Jadah will never forget the day her Dad Murdered her boyfriend...hell i would hope to heck she quit drugs after that!To bad he couldn't save her with out killing someone..is all i am saying!

Well i hope for all of you who think Kim Walker did Yorkton a favour never have a child who doesn't do exactly what you dreamt of....cause if vigilante justice is what you dream of well then who is the bad parent here?

I suppport the Mom and Dads views here!!!! I do think you would agree with me that Mr. Walker took a life, however he was also saving one, his daughter. I'm sure if Hayward would still be alive Jadah may not be...dead from drugs....supplied from Hayward

Why did Walker own a handgun? Handguns only have one purpose ,Killing humans they are no good for anything else!What was a 14 year old girl doing making porn videos with a 24 year old.There is no such thing as a pusher!People can make there own decisions even at 14.If Jadah was a alcoholic would her idiot father have walked into the liquor store and started shooting all the pushers that work there?Every one seems to miss the point that if Jadah wasn 't a little SKANK that whole mess never would have happend.

Boy do some of you people need lessons on dealing with a child with addictions..."walk a mile in his shoes" is the comment that most comes to mind. Easy to judge when it's not your family. Kim did only some of us think about, and yes that is the extreme. The live of my child, or the live of the drug dealing scum that has her addicted and dying...wouldn't be a difficult choice for me. As for your comment on Jadah being a little SKANK, I pray for your sake it's never your kid...

i believe that what mr.walker did was what he felt was right at the time..how can ''any of you;; say otherwise? parent or not, you were not in his shoes. THERES ONLY SO MUCH A GOOD PARENT CAN TAKE!!!!the police wern't going to do anything about the situation mr. and mrs. were in soo as a PARENT he did what he felt Had to be done to save his''16 YEAR OLDS'' LIFE. Have any of you put yourslf in his situation, or the question is do any of you big talkers (and all the negative comments) even have kids you love and cherish??? I knew the Walker family and they are kind people. Kim acted out of fright of loosing his daughter. I don't agree with the revolver part; but come on...wouldnt you give your life and spare time to save your flesh and blood??? Murder is unnessisary, but so are all the stinking comments from all you unexperienced people..give it a rest.

Is this what the world is coming too, that parents have to be prepared for their children to become some kind of addicts. What happened to normal people? Normal kids? These spoiled little bastards grow up thinking the world owes them something and cause all kinds of trouble. Beat these little motherf**kers. These little SKANK bitches like jada walker get themselves into all kinds of shit and expect someone to save them... F**k um. It's up to the person to save themselve from a life of laziness, crime, drugs and unsafe sex. Yeah, i know jada... she is a skank. A big stinky skank.

Without getting into a disagreement with all the posts, I will say this. My daughter is with one of these A$$holes. He was into drugs before he met my daughter and to this day continues to do drugs. I will not sit here and say that my daughter is innocent BUT, if it were not for this a$$hole BF, she would be clean, trust me on that. We found out that she is on heroin and she has tried to get the help she needs but this low life piece of garbage continues to bring here down. So as a father of a 23 yr old daughter who has tried everything to get her help and get her off of this let me tell you, I have run out of options. Could I take his life? HELL YES. You can only drive a father so far before they break and this father has been pushed well beyond the breaking point. Do I know it's wrong to take a life? Yes I do. Does it make anything better? In my eyes it would. My daughter will lose me one day, weather it's when I am 41 or 71 so she will have to deal with it eventually. To make matters worse, she has a one yr old that who my wife and I take care of 90% of the time. I am a christian who has prayed for help but UNLESS you are in this situation (which I HOPE TO GOD YOUR NOT) you will NEVER understand the emotions that run through you. So ANYONE who will sit here and say that you would do this or you would do that, DON'T say it unless you are in or have been in this situation. Also you can preach all you want about what is right or what is wrong by the bible, I will not disagree with you that it is wrong, but I am the one who would have to answer to God. Not you. You are not my judge, God is and that would be between him & I.
For the record my wife has kept both me and my son from bringing any harm to this moron.

Your daughter is extremely stupid, weak and selfish. If she cared for anybody but herself, she'd see how much pain she's putting her family through. She has clearly chosen her boyfriend and his life of drugs over her family and her own child. Blame the boyfriend all you want but think about this... girls are oddly attracted to men that remind them of their own father, so what does that say about you?

Well dear sir from Canada, your comments speak volumes of a person who has no knowledge of the mind or for that matter children in general. Not too mention sir I beg you to look into what certain types of drugs do to ones mind. You have no clue at all. Your statement regarding daughters choose men like their fathers is a myth in this case. You have NO idea of who or what I am..I have never did a drug and neither did her mother. So your out burst towards me is unjustified and unwarranted. Yes our daughter is stupid,selfish,weak and cares for nobody other than her self. That is what drugs do to your mindset you uneducated dad. You sound like a man who just might have done drugs in the past or for that matter even continue to this day. Maybe in your world things are perfect? Maybe you think your the perfect father? You have offered absolutely nothing worth regarding anything close to a sophisticated response.
