Theifs eventually get what they have coming to them. Today was this ignorants thiefs day. What was someone like this doing out on the streets, served 10 yrs for murder... And has committed every crime possible. I feel for the bike owner.

Who are you to say what people get? People make dumb decisions but that doesn't mean they deserve to die. Do you know anything about him? People only point out the bad things he has done. He has a wife and kids. Who cares if the bike was stolen or not, his kids will grow up without their dad. If it was his bike and this happened people wouldn't be pointing out all of his faults. Get over yourself like you have never done anything wrong and have a little respect for his family who lost a good person. I hope you get what you deserve for being such a cruel person and saying such things.

Dee, put down the crack pipe. I have absolutely no sympathy towards a thief and murderer. I agree, we all have made mistakes in out lives, but murder and thieving are not mistakes, but real hard core crimes. That dude was lucky that he didn't steal my bike and let me catch him, because I would have tortured that sorry freaker.

Billy, When did Mr. Christopher change, i don't see that he ever did, considering he basically dug his own grave with the decision that led him to his death. Thieves are thieves. This simple minded criminal shouldn't have been on the streets to been thieving anyways.

Dee, Honestly? What kind of "Father" is still participating in amateur crimes such as this? Do you seriously think that he was thinking of his daughter, wife or family whenever he was loading this bike up? Much less whenever he was riding out of Stupidity? I also don't believe that Mr. Christopher thought of anyone else except himself.

What is ignorant is that you made a comment like that about a man who is now deceased. Yes he was wrong and yes he committed alot of crimes, and i believe we all have to pay for things we do; but when it comes to death you and no one else has the right to wish death on anyone.

chris was a great man i loved him with all my heart he was always my go to man when i need advice and a person to talk to he knew everything about me and he would use his past to help me not take the wrong route and Ive rode with him A LOT, done crazy things with him and made a lot of memories with him but despite knowing his background and a lot about him i still looked at him as a person if it wasn't for him i probably would of already lost my head he has saved me in many different ways its unreal. He was a great friend and he was always down to help out in any way he could! But some people have tend to forget that GOD DOES FORGIVE and please dont tell me that he has broken several commandments because all the negative talk thats going on in these comments in the bible it states thou shall not judge so if god wont judge why are you people but you kno what no matter what people say he dont have to answer to you all he has to answer to is god so for all you rthat wanna talk down on him ur the people that wouldnt ever give him a chance in this world and you think what he did was bad SMH and for the person to say he got what he deserved thats an awful thing to say about a person do you think god really punishes in death????????? come on now get real! chris i love you bro i miss you deeply and nobody will ever take my memories away and can ever convince me that you were a horrible person because im my eyes you were an angle to me always had my back and made sure i was always ok and for his family im so sorry for your loss we all lost a great person the funereal was great and now he can finally rest in preace i love you chris!!!!!!!!

I may not have known my cousin very well because of the age differents, but to not consider who u are offendin and to make such hurtfull comments. That really shows alot about u. He was a brother, cousin, father, and he has a family. The sad part bout it is that I didn't get to say goodbye but he visted my grandmother and family before he left us. He will always be remembered and Loved dearly and will be missed. Love u cuz.... (and if God judge us according to our sins we would all be dead, no sin is greater than the next so before u judge take a look at ur life i'm pretty sure u shud be dead too)

What's up with all you idiots defending a thief and a murderer?

I hope that you get a dose of what Chris had dished out before his death. Then we will see if you will still call them mistakes!

Everyone that has something negative to say is ignorant, and obviously did not know Chris they way we did..regardless to anything he has done, it is not anyone's place to come on this website and talk bad about someone you dont even know, especially someone who has passed away. ONLY GOD will BE THE JUDGE of CHRiS. SO please stop with the negative comments,, your just wasting your time!! Love you uncle Chris ALwaysz and Forever, on my 21st bday im getting a motorcycle with your name spray painted on it :)

"it is not anyone's place to come on this website and talk bad about someone"

Why isn't my place? This is a public forum?

The facts are he WAS convicted of murder and died riding a stolen motorcycle.

"ONLY GOD will BE THE JUDGE of CHRiS"

You should really take the time to read and learn what the bible says. Then you wouldn't be making assine statements like the one above showing off your spiritual ignorance!

PuZo the bible also states Luke 6:37 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."

so who are you to be the one....... look me up on facebook i dont care my display picture is a picture of chris and will remain that way for a long time its been like that and i dont plan on changing that any time soon if any of his family or friends wants to add me go ahead i loved chris!!! he was honestly my guardian angle he kept me from doing wrong!!!!

Religion has nothing to do with his death.

Karma.
