I stand with you

I don't know any of you but just wanted to let you know that I, as a citizen of Bluefield, stand behind you 100% in your quest for justice for your loved one. I am horrified that David Hurt has been paraded through the media like a returning conquering hero, while the real victims of this are ignored. You have handled this with utmost class and decorum, something I'm not sure I could do if I were in your position.
For the people who get on here defending these thugs who have no respect for other's please remember,you may think they are your "friends", "buddies", or "boys", but they can turn on you in an instance.

I could not have said this any better-I was appauled when they paraded him like some hero as they did-figures for the TRASH that WVVA is.

This is a problem in America with the whole system...police and others work to apprehend the criminals and get them off the street and some IDOIT overrides it all and puts them back out to kill or do drugs-sell drugs or steal whatever again.

I TOTALLY have NO USE for WVVA in all of this...time and time again they have proved their uselessness as media.This "parade of a hero" they did was arrogant total disrespect of the victim's family& friends-and to LAW ABIDING CITIZENS-who want and deserve a safe place to live.

WVVA never talks about the details of this case. I guess where it is several years old now but I always wondered if he claims to be innocent then where was he on the night that the murder took place? Did he help the person that now admits to doing it or drive him somewhere? Surely if he was with the guy but did not pull the trigger than he was an accomplish before or after the fact and an accessory. Now he gets to go free because of this?

He was there that night.But he stated he had no clue that his so called friend was going to kill Freddie!His friend stated that David distracted Freddie while he shot him in the head!David also threatened Freddie Lester a few days before the killing. He also threatened his family. A few have stated that he was framed because of his skin color, but yet the one that accused him was also African American and was his friend. And if he didn't do it, but he seen the killing why didn't he go to the police and tell what happened? If you're innocent call the police and tell them everything,If you have nothing to hide!

Funny that Wvva does not report about him threatening the victim days before. They make it seem like he was an outstanding kid who got caught up with a bad friend. I knew there was more to the story than what they was telling. I guess his time in the jail system would have equaled to the amount of being an accessory to murder so that is why they might have dropped everything but is sounds shady. How old was he when this happened? I thought I seen that he was 15 years old. Where was his parents at and why was he out so late at night. Upstanding teenagers dont go out at all hours of the night that is for out.

Davy was at homet that's why he is claiming his innocence

Freddie Lester's daughter has been on there twice in the last week. And who wouldn't want to get an interview with Davie Hurt after he just got out of prison? The newspaper interviewed him, too. He was the headline of the moment. And the Lester family got to present their side. Seems fair and balanced more than the "fair and balanced" channel.

If he was at home and had witnesses to that then how did he get arrested in the first place? Or do you mean that he went home and then got arrested and tried to say he was at home the whole time?

Actually I had to find this on another news site other than wvva:

"Hurt has maintained that he was talking to his pregnant girlfriend at about 3 a.m. on Aug. 21, 1995, the time of Lester's death."

Good kids do not stalk the streets in the middle of the night....Good parents do not allow them to.

drive through bluefield especially up or down blfd avenue any time during the night and you will see people out walking the streets. i mean at hours of the night that most folks are asleep. no not every street stroller is out to get into trouble but sooner or later trouble will surface. example: freddie lester. and right down the road from the police dept. wow.

I too had a problem with WVVA parading this man around like a hero. I maybe could have understood if their was evidence showing he was innocent but I dont feel he is inncoent and pray he one day, if not on earth than before God, get what he deserves. I wanted to watch the extended version on WVVA.com but it has not volume to it. DId anyone get to hear it? Im curious about the papers the daughter has in her hands. Are these letters from the killer?? Anyhow, WVVA if your read fix the volume to the daughter talking on the extended version.

so what proof do you all have that he is guilty? if you have some and are not giving it up then that is withholding evidence right? until then shut the fuck up. i hate when people talk about things they have no idea about...yall say its not about color but sure enough there are some dumb racist comments on here. send them back to their home country? what is yours retard? why dont you travel to your home country and stay there? as far as i know davie was born right here in bluefield so that would make America his home country right? why dont you stupid people wait until the new trial is over before you start this? huh? wait until he is retried before a jury of his peers. there was obviously something not right or the judge would not have released him. we dont know. none of us were in the court room on any of these occasions so how do we know? they just dont release people out of prison unless their time is up or someone really f*cked it up. we were not at the store that night so how the hell do you people have the nerve to be his judge, jury, and executioner?

The paper was a letter from David Hurt! He wrote her a letter.
He has not been proven innocent. He was released because of a technicality. His "Newman Rights" were not read to him when he took the stand in his own self defense. Big Deal!! The criminals have more rights than the victims. The justice system is so screwed up!
