Felix brought the situation on himself.Gilbert shot him in self-defense.Everyone wants to make it look like Felix was a saint and never did anything wrong,and has no enemies.That is bull crap.Felix shot at Gilbert first,and anyone in Gilbert's situation would have responded the sameway.So,all those bad things that you are saying about Gilbert,and all the good stuff you are saying about Felix you can stick it up butt.Gilbert is not a criminal,but Felix was a thief.Felix brought his death on hiself.Gilbert had every right to shoot him because Felix was going to kill him.And all that crap that Gilbert chased him out of the house was a lie.But,what is true is that Felix started the whole confrontation,and his death was his fault print that in the News Paper.

i feel that the shooting was justified.Felix Lang did something to bring the situation to a tragic turn,but his friends and family are going to keep there mouths shut,so nobody can find out the truth about him.I bet Felix was involved in drugs or in a gang of some sort.There is a piece of the puzzle that is missing,and because of that a man who defended himself against danger is in jail where he doesn't belong.Felix and his thug buddies went pruposely to the party to get Gilbert.But,God was on Gilbert's side.They tried to get him by fighting,but Gilbert kicked his buut,then they tried to shoot him but didn't succeed,then they hit him purposely with a car trying to kill him,but all he suffered was a broken leg.So,instead of condemning Gilbert look at the facts,and you will see that the so called basketball player was the devil in disguise.Free Gilbert McDonlad,and find him not guilty.

Gilbert is not guilty or a criminal.The shooting was the only option because Felix shot at him first.

Gilbert did not start the fight Felix did.Gilbert did not chase him out of the house.Gilbert did not pull out a gun.Gilbert wasn't even carrying a gun.Felix was carrying a gun,but his thug friends won't say that though.

Gilbert God is on your side and he will protect you.He knows that you don't deserve to go to prison,and he is going to give you your freedom back.You came into contact with some evil thugs,and you have the right to defend yourself.

Felix had enemies and I know this personally.Felix liked to start problems and fight.He thought because he was a basketball player that gave him the right to act like a fool.His friends are thugs and so was Felix.Felix brought firearms into to play first.I guess since he got his butt kicked by Gilbert that he would look like a punk infront of everybody,so he decided to take things to a vicious level,but again like the fight he lost.He should of stayed home instead of at the last minute deciding to go to a party where he learned that Gilbert McDonald was at to attack him with his friends.Felix friends tried to kill Gilbert by hiting him with a vehicle.I hope the court,the judge,the attorney's,and the justice system as a whole realize that Gilbert was under attack by Felix and his crew,and Gilbert had no choice but defend himself.

The person who wrote this article should be fired for slander.The events of that night are incorrect.First,Gilbert did not chase Felix out of the house and shoot him 3 times.Felix showed his thief mentality,and once he was approached by McDonald about situation,Felix became hostile,vulger,and confrontational.Felix then started a fight with McDonald in which he lost.Then Felix,proceeded to call his thug friends on his cell phone,so they can all attack McDonald.Felix at that time presented a gun and fired a shot at McDonald who was not armed with a weapon of any kind.Once Felix shot at McDonald,like any person with sense McDonald defended himself because his life was in danger.Then,one of Felix's thug friends decided to use his vehicle as a deadly weapon and proceeded to try and run McDonald over,which caused McDonald to suffer a broken leg.So,the person who wrote this article is writing lies and slandering McDonald's name with these lies.I use to be a fan of the Daily News,but I'm no longer a fan because the Daily News is not about writing the truth it is about writing lies.Gilbert does not deserve 50 years to life the writer of this article,and Felix's thugs friends deserve 50 years to life.So, I would advise you to retract this story and get your facts straight you liars.

Come one guys, it's the LA Times, sorry I mean the Daily News but now it's so liberal it's just like the Times.

All California media will have you believe that ONLY law enforcement needs guns or should even try to defend themselves. Anyone that even owns a gun is guilty of something - at least guilty of not being "progressive."

The guys in this house drove Bentleys and Escalades - don't they know that's bad for the environment? I heard they didn't recycle either! They had a big new year's party - I bet you there were drugs there!

Haven't you heard of turning the other cheek? You are supposed to call the police if you have a problem. Never mind that they won't come, or even if they do it'll take 10 minutes or so.

It kind of sounds like the "victim" might not be so much of a victim after all. I don't believe anything I read in the paper or see on the news anymore. In fact, I know from personal experience is that the most accuracy you can hope for from media reporting is that it is "not completely wrong." That is what they strive for. Not the truth, just not completely wrong enough not to get sued.

Whatever happen and for whatever reason. NO one should have lost their life. Each family has been deeply affected by the whole situation. One family buried a son, and another might have possibly lost their son to prison life. No matter what the situation is NO one has a right to take someone else life in their own hands. So if Felix had of shot Gilbert would the situation been different? Someone is still DEAD!!! May god have mercy on their souls.

Gilbert gets everything he deserves. He has experience "thuggin" and deserves what he's got coming to him. He likes to play the role of friend but will kick the stool out form under your feet if he thought it would better his life monetarily. I believe if it wasn't this it would have been something else. You ride fast your going to crash like thunder. He's truly not a very good guy. But he would have you believe that he is. He has done a lot of people wrong and now it all coming back on him. 50 years? Throw away the key. There are way to many good people that value life and want to live on this earth.

Gilbert doesn't deserve what you people are saying.Mr.Anonymous from San Francisco,Ca all that crap you are saying about throw away the key and he play the role of a friend but he will kick the stool from under is nothing but BS from some A-hole that is too much of a punk to put his you scary a-hole.Gilbert is a wonderful person,and there were many times when he was there for me.Whenever I need him he is there without question.He has given me advice that changed my life in a positive direction.I will always stand by Gilbert because he is an angel who came into contact with devil.But God's children always win.So,Gilbert keep your head up,there are many people out here who love you and who are pulling for you to come through this with a not guilty verdict because you are definitely not guilty.
Praying for you everyday!!!!

Here's the name of Gilbert's attorney. His name is Christopher Darden. His telephone number is found in THE CALIFORNIA BAR ASOCIATION WEBSITE AT WWW.CALBAR.CA.GOV . There are lots of people who saw the shooting, but who did not talk to the police. Also, the police have been slow in giving Gilbert's attorney witness statements. Unless you help Gilbert prove he acted in self defense, he could spend every day of the rest of his life in prison. True believers in justice should call DARDEN.

So where was Flex gun at please you don't know but god does, Aint nobody gonna step up that party was full of drugs and gangstas and Gilbert felt it was his home girl party and she told the truth... So if Gilbert didnt have a gun where did the GUNS come from u don't know so shut the heck up with madness.Why didn;t the cops find a gun on flex. mind yo bizness yo boys still calling cryin they put extra on his bail cause he is a foreigner will try to run...to Belize or where ever please we will see at trial im a lang and could careless about what u imposter friends say birds of feather flock together and i guess you all are fake bouncers runninig after another brother.Flex was 28 and gilbert is 34 flex wouldnt spend his time putting hiself in jeopardy around alot of nothing negros, who doesnt know a gangmemeber. but when you shoot someone in the back just like a car accident you are in the wrong. And Gilbert is in jail idle like usual he just cant smoke no weed poor Gilbert and the so called homies on here we will see yall at trial if your some real friends OR DONT HAVE ANYTHING ELSE BUT JUDGE SOMEONE WHO OS UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVE. KEEP GOD IN YO LIFE RIGHT IS RIGHT AND WRONG WRONG.I DONT CARE HOW MANY BLUNTS YOU DONE SMOKED WITH GILBERT.
