Kelly was----NOT---- a FIGHTER. These individuals that claim he was starting all kinds of fights are just looking for anything to save their asses. Two young men beating a 140# old man to death is about as chicken shit as you can get, pick on someone who will fight back, hopefully soon you will see how it feels. Remember APPLEFEST were these self proclaimed "tough men" beat another 50 yr old man and put him in the hospital. You would think that being that close to killing somebody would have been a wake up call. It is time for them to be STOPPED before more innocent people are hurt or killed, as long as these men are free it will keep happening. WE WILL MISS YOU KELLY R.I.P.

saying that someone who's 50 years old is like 140 years old is a bunch of B.S. hell there's probably a some 60 something's out there that could fend off a 20 something, age dont determine how a man fight's it's the physical shape there in, but 2 that's not a fair fight, doubleteaming someone no matter what age is utter pussyification in my book, you veiw 50 as 140, what's 35 in your book 70?

Sweet kids. Sweet kids that murdered someone. I am sick and tired of people saying that they aren't responsible for their actions because of drinking/upbringing/etc.
So love them, and write them when they go to prison.

Your response to Amy in Beloit is uncalled for. That's how fight get started and someone gets hurt or killed. Kelly did not deserve waht happen to him, no one deserve that kind of treatment.

The bartender should be held accountable for what happened too. I know I have been a bartender off and on for almost 25 years in many different places and whenever there is any kind of trouble you have to call the police asap. Another thing why didn't anyone stop what was happening. Not everyone in the bar that night was drunk, were they?? Get your heads out of your asses and try using it for more then your hair to grow on.

Binge drinking, fighting and all the crap that goes with it sucks...You can't even go out any more have a few drinks without being worried about whos gonna mess who up! It's all stupid and a waste of life. If your from down here you usually dont stop a fight a lot of people are usually strapped. Plus u stick up for someone and then u have a target on your back. I think as soon a punch is thrown the cops should be called. There are still people that want to go out just to be social.

"Remember APPLEFEST were these self proclaimed "tough men" beat another 50 yr old man and put him in the hospital."

Do you have any other info on this incident. I am unable to find anything, though several sites have comments that mention it. Also, another young man that crossed paths with these two and ended up with a broken jaw.

thanks
