I have read the above comments. Do any of you know about the loser he ended up shooting that would not leave his home? Probably not. Bik is not a killer or murderer or whatever you want to call him. Did he use drugs (sure) marijuana. Probably shouldn't have mixed that with his pain medication for all his surgeries. But all of you, including the so called old friend of his, have no idea about Bikram. Mr. Ritter was a huge kid (over 250lbs) who got into fights every day or every other day and had to visit the hospital on many occasions for his fighting injuries. If you know Bik, he would not stand a chance against someone with a 3.1 blood alcohol level that wanted to fight him! Shooting was his only choice! In fact he is the one who called 911 to report that he shot an intruder and was concerned about this person after he ran out of his home. If I was in the same situation, I would have done the same thing. Murder was not what he was ever thinking about and scaring and injuring the person probably was. Learn more about Mr. Ritter before you make accusations about Bik. Even his own family had put a restraining order against Mr. Ritter from coming within 500 feet of themselves and thier home. So give me a break "Not given" and "Figure it out" is probably a druggy friend of Mr. Ritters as well".
Are you kidding me where is the remorse in that what about Rick Ritter's family his chilren no longer have a father his family lost someone they loved dearly nobody is perfect but that does not excuse shotting someone I knew Rick and yeah maybe he was not perfect but he didnt deserve to die and just cause Bik called 911 doesnt make it better maybe you should know the whole story before you go passing judgement on someone and have respect for the Dead I mean come on.

Has anyone stopped to think about the man who lost his life I read someones comment about how Bik was trying to defend himself and scare Rick but please if that were true then why did he shoot Rick in the neck and to say he was concerned about Rick after he shot him please thats a bunch of BS he didnt call right away he waited and then called this whole thing makes me sick and people who are talking disrespect about the dead need to get a life let them Rest in Peace and let his family deal with it instead of contiuning to talk about it him like he is the one who is the bad guy yeah Nobodys perfect but I knew Rick and unless u people know him personally u have no right to say anything about him he was a human being a Brother a uncle a son a father a husband a person. Noone deserves to lose there life what is wrong people today it just makes me sick My heart and prayers go out to his family thats all I can say

So I'm a friend of the family on Rick's side and I don't know exactly what happened...nor did I know either of the guys involved..but I've seen the pain on the Ritter's side and just have 2 things to say..to all of you with your spiteful comments you should be ashamed and think before you type..it may be satisfying to you but that's selfish..you should look at the Big Picture...this is a lose-lose situation on both sides and you're just causing more pain to people who did NOTHING wrong to you..like the families of these guys! I was born and raised in Philadelphia so I've seen more than my share of guns broken out at parties over a stupid arguements and people drunk, trippin on shit, coked out and seen people shot right in front of me..it's Scary and Unreal..but it's REAL!! And it's sad! There's NO Reason or Excuse to bring a gun into an arguement..PERIOD!!! My condolences go out to both the families for the pain they have been through...and I believe the sentence was fair...it won't bring Ricky back though and that's a very sad part of life.....you just have to focus on the Good Times you had with him....RIP Ricky

It has taken a few years to wright this

we got into alot of trouble and did alot of crazy shit. me and him were like brothers. Mrs. Ritter and Mr. Ritter know. and when me and Ricky hung out they would sometimes wonder what we were up to. I dont blame them, we could be a little sneaky at times.he was my best friend even after I moved from Colorado And he is still my best friend even in eternal rest. He did not deserve this. R.I.P. Brother. may the lord forgive your killer for the pain he has caused his family and friends
