with the story saying he has had past violence/rage and alcohol problems you would think she would

but 10 - 15 years down the road she will most likely become another "statistic" that didn't know any better

You guys are very well informed and intelligent posters.
You do know that Mark plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter and that carries a maximum sentence of 30-60 months, right? So he got 10 months under the max sentence the judge could have imposed. If you don't like the law, move to another state or write your state rep.
I don't have a problem with the sentence. That's the price of doing business. I have a problem with the people who are calling it an accident.

If it had happened there there would have been no punishment because the police would not have been called. They would have found the body a day later. Again, why is everything being turned into a racial thing? You are truly pathetic.

thank you gramma. I am actually going to leave this discussion now because Punisher has to get nasty and say that he doesn't drink because he would have ended up with someone like me. That was just uncalled for simply because I choose to disagree with what he says. I came on her to make a point that drinking in excess can lead to horrible consequences. If one person agrees with me than maybe one 'accident' was aaverted. But since punisher has to become a child I will no longer participate. By the way Punisher, drunk or dead sober you could never be a man that I would even consider since your are such a single minded egotistical jerk.

Ok...first of all. I know Kay Schickling very well, she is the WIDOW of Jim Schickling and for all of you who THINK you know, you do not know anything so you should shut your mouths.Whay don't you look at Kay and tell her it was an accident? YOU look at Jims sons and tell them it was an accident. Mark Wells should have gotten a lot more time then he did. He is getting off easy. Poor Mark and his fiance, boo freaking hoo. How about Kay who will never celebrate another birthday or anniversary with her husband. How about their 2 sons who have to celebrate fathers day without their father because of Mark Wells. When accidents happen you try your best to correct them, Mark Wells walked away. He should suffer every day of his life. Let him see what it feels like to not be able to be with the ones you love...let him see what its like to not be able to hold and kiss the ones you love. He has no idea what it is like to suffer. He celebrated holidays and even got engaged while waiting for his trial and sentence. I hope you read this, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A KILLER MARK WELLS!!!! You should NEVER become a Chiropractor...you should NEVER be able to do anything that makes you happy....you should be punished for the rest of your life. You showed NO REMORSE in court and your family acted surprised that you got what you did. Get over it..did you think he would get off with nothing? He practically did. For all of you who think otherwise, you have NO RIGHT unless you walk in the shoes of Kay Schickling. Do not speak about things you are not aware of and DO NOT OFFEND someone who's actions were a result of MURDER and if you do, you are no better than Mark Wells. Pray for Kay and her boys...they are the ones who matter most in this terrible tragedy no thanks to Mark Wells. I hope you rot and get what you deserve. You do not deserve to breathe the same air as we do.

You are talking about revenge not justice. I don't disagree with you but your whole post was simply hatred. I wish you the best in getting over that

Not only is Wells a murderer, he's a coward as well. Under oath he admitted lying to the police about his involvement. After lying, he fled to New York. Yesterday was a beautiful day to go to jail. The next time Wells sees a beautiful day like that he'll be looking at an azure blue sky through razor wire!!

When the D.A. asked mark if he was lying to the police when questioned by them the following day...his response was no i didn't lie to the police, I just didn't tell the truth.so once again he attempts to justify his actions. a five year old can comprhend that a lie and not telling the truth is exactly the same. Mark's statements in court along with his girlfriend both stated how upset Mark was that Beau won't speak to him. But neither one of the stated that they were upset that Lynn's uncle is dead. Mark is a self-centered angry person that has yet to accept responsibility for his actions. If you trip someone it is a accident you apologize and help them up. Mark stated in court that his intention/target was Mr. Schickling therefore it wasn't an accident. Maybe he needs a dictionary b/c a lie is the same as not telling the truth and an accident is never done intentionaly.

Fatboy your the ignorant one this is not a revenge message only a message of the truth. The dude is a scum bag murderer and he deserves to hang. May he rot in hell and be the dirt bag boyfriend of his cell mate. He did NOT get a long enough sentence.

Sorry, the reason I say that is because you make no sense, and make my head hurt. I'm sure you are a nice person, but your values are warped when you can in any way shape or form say this was even remotely an accident

That's horrible! You are making their family look bad. I don't believe the Shicklings would want some "hot headed" person on this making threats to Mr. Wells, why would you lower yourself to his standards? You act as though he is going to read this, and if you are so angry write a letter to him yourself. You are a hypocrite you don't want violence "you should be punished for the rest of your life. You showed NO REMORSE" "He should suffer every day of his life." yet you are brutal him though out your comment? And about his family, don't you think if you were in HIS FAMILY'S shoes you would go in there hoping for the better? You don't hear people saying to themselves "Oh, Mark I know you are going to get the max sentence?" Now do they? No they think for the better. I will say it again, HIS FAMILY had nothing to do with this, so they are hurting to and of course they wanted it to be for the better you would to if it was YOUR family member. Once again, horrible for both family's. And you might need to consider some help.

[Typical"]White justice prevails again. If it had been a minority that killed the man there would have been an outcry from every politician in the state. A black or puerto rican guy would be on death row if he had commited this crime. There would have been no deal in a case with 50 witnesses and a confession. But this white piece of crap gets off with a slap on the wrist just because he's white. I can't wait till you A-holes are the minority, maybe then we would finally have a justice system that judged by the content of one's character and not by the color of their skin. Until then I hope this piece of crap gets raped repeatedly while he serves his 20 month murder sentence
Typical, if this country is so bad what are you doing here and how did you get your computer, with food stamps?
I have no sympathy for people who play race games either black, white or Hispanic.
I have defended minorities on this website but I will not sit back and be threatened. What are you going to do when I become a minority, shoot me?
There are plenty of Black criminals that plea bargain. I guess if a black or Hispanic kills someone in your community that is the white man's fault.
Again, I will defend everyone's rights to live the life they choose but I will not be intimidated and I am not afraid of you.

I didn't see him call anybody ignorant. I agree that those that are hurting and want to get him back should seek counseling to help get through it. Wells is never going to give them closure.
