This is the first time I've visited this site and you people are simply pathetic. A man is dead , another is probably going to prison for some length of time and all you so called "friends" can do to "honor" this young guys memory is go on some place like topix to spew stupidity like anything said on this forum really matters?

Don't you think your time could be better used to make sure his kids don't forget him, his family is taken care of , maybe set up some sort of memorial fund in his name etc... things that will actually do some good, cause this sure doesn't do anything except make you look rediculous.
I understand being frustrated by peoples comments about someone you care about but quit wasting your time with this crap, the people you're arguing with could care less about you, your family or David so why bother with them? Get on to what is important, your family.

What a tragedy for all involved.

This guy who says he acted in self-defense will still need to get himself a lawyer to allow the truth to come out.

It's unfortunate it came to this.

david is sleeping with the worms because he had a violent temper and he couldn't control it the thing is david unleashed his temper on someone who had the means to defend him self, wich makes david a loser. And yes i did talk to an imeadate family member, and that is what i was told. so wake up and smell what it is your shoveling, you looser

I don't recall ever saying that David's family should move on, that's pretty much impossible to do when you've lost a kid, regardles of the circumstances ( I've been there and it's hell).
I'm saying all of the pathetic idiots like yourself who profess to be the keepers of all that is just and right , the idiots like yourself who think that posting juvenile rants like " I hope he gets raped everyday" ( and other mindless tripe you like to spew while making claims of being close to the family )like you are really helping David's family need to get a clue and a life outside of your utterly miserable existence on Topix and move on.
I feel truly sorry for his family, regardless of who started what part of the altercation when , and I knew David, I worked with him. But this asinine crap you seem to be compelled to spew out day after day after day does nothing good to serve David's memory or his family. People like you are the reason that noone wants to listen to his families side of it, because all you put out there is mindless childish bulls**t that makes you look like an idiot.
Maybe if you could think and act above the mentality of a middle school child and put out a post that actually had some thought behind it without all of the childishness that you so seem to love people would take more of an interest in David's family and their side of this.
If all you're going to do is continue to place posts that make you appear to be some low class, backwoods hic that thinks every problem is solved with the well placed "f bomb" noone will ever take you seriously and most will just keep posting stupid sh*t back just to get a rise out of you.
Like I said,if you REALLY want to help David's family , do something constructive that will honor him and his memory and move on from this childish posting crap . You're doing way more harm than good with it.
MOVE ON

first off,you are a piece of sh*t!!!And the family member you are talking to is equally a piece of sh*t as you are. He didn't have a temper and even if he did that does not give some p*ssy b*tch the right to pull that trigger.P*ssy b*tch could of run or drove off,but he knew that gun was there and chose to use it,he premeditated that kill and had just the right gun to do the job.he so badly wanted to use that gun that he had to prey among the family who was just evicted over the holiday.Leppert is the loser as well as anyone who would stick up for him or socially knows him. Piece Of Sh*t!!!

justice needs to be served what r these people doing 8 mos and that as*hole hasn't been arrested yet.somethin' funny goin' on.David does not deserve this,he should be honored just like anyone else that dies in this traumatic of an event,he don't deserve to be dead and his killer walk free,it's just not the way things should be.David was very loved and did alot of good things,people should have more respect for him and his family.doesn't anybody see davids side or is it all lepperts,come to the gray area it a little clearer here.

herman was an a**hole he went looking for trouble (or should i say his loud mouth girlfriend, who started it all, went looking for trouble) and an innocent man had to defend himself, david may have done a lot of good things but he didnt pay the rent, so he was evicted, by a judge, court orderd, this was not a suggestion, it meant leave, go away, get off the property, but NOOOOO!!!! this means for everyone but david herman, davey boy do what ever you want go pick a fight with a innocent guy, then follow him to his car and start another fight inside the guys car, and see what happens? oh wait you allready tried that, hows that working out for you.

yes a murdering pig is what he is,u need to get your information correctly,nobody got what they deserve maybe it is you that should've been there that day,you and your ignorance, and davy boy,do u even know him and his wife at all?probably not,if so how?and who cares about her anyway nobody said she didn't have a big mouth,have you ever had a run in with her?she can be unpleasant but shoot her man over her words and actions,that's pathetic,p*ssy stuff,leppert was angry and he was not protecting himself he was unleashing his wrath.unless you personally know them go play hide and go f*ck yourself.how did u know them????Too much of a puss to reveal yourself,ya,your just a coward just like your buddy leppert.Cowards bring a whole new meaning after reading your garbage and leppert shooting an Angel.Yes he was perfect in every way,he was something you could never be,he was a man that worked hard and did what he had to do to take care of his little girls,and protect his family when needed.David was PERFECT!!!!!oh ya and by the way go fuck your mother.have a nice day u leppert loving coward.

I didn't realize the ghetto welfare crew had internet access...

Who else would possible be able to type drivel like that and spew hatred like that, other than someone growing up thinking they are owed the right to be and do and say what they want, other than some ghetto welfare tribe member?

Unfortunately, the public schools did nothing for your spelling, reading or writing ability, otherwise likely I could have responded to something ... as it stands, it's hard to make it out, who's talking about whom...maybe that's the problem. You people grew up with ignorance and anger and a sense of entitlement, while the rest of us grew up with knowledge and a sense of justice and doing what is right.

I pity anyone closely involved in this situation, as it is sad and tragic. If only the couple had removed their belongings when they were told to be out by, this would have been prevented. If only the couple hadn't instigated a violent outburst, this wouldn't have happened. If only the couple had simply contacted their landlord, instead of attacking the locksmith, this wouldn't have happened.

Shame, shame, SHAME on that couple.

Hard lesson to learn, that sense of entitlement doesn't always get you what you want.

And as for the "facts" being known in a small community by the end of the day - that's comedic (funny)!! I literally laughed out loud for that one! In other words, the gossip mill was churing ferociously and the truth was being expounded upon and twisted and turned visciously until it made an innocent man, and the true victim,(Leppert) look evil. You have to love small town small mindedness.
