What is Deters trying to do to this small
community?
A "hate" crime?
Sounds like it was a dumb intoxicated crime!
All of his "witnesses" were intoxicated
to some degree or another.
Deters would not have charged a "hate"
crime if three black men and a white got into
a bar room brawl.
So Effingham county is now Deters little
"social" experiment?
This is not about justice, this is about
Deter's political ploy!
It's called assault & battery, not a
Hate or thought crime.

Go get em Deters they should rot in jail for what they did to this young man. And Condezz who says his witnesses were intoxicated? I think you have your information backwards when it comes to who was intoxicated I think it was the 3 Lowlifes that starting yelling racial slurs at him that were intoxicated and looking to start trouble, and this young man was their target when he walked into the bar, because that how people like them are. They have to gang up on a person and then get their menions to go around spreading lies trying to make their victim look bad.

This is so sad when I read what they did to this young man. This really stirred up a fury in me ( as I know it has alot of people in this community.) I hope these 3 get punished to the full extent of the law for what did. They dont even need to be a part of our society.

All 3 are from a different county?
Same political agenda.
This so called thought, sorry "hate" crime

Ed Deters found true "racism" in a drunken
bar fight in Altamont Il.?
What a joke!
God (lite) Deters is kissing liberal
"thought" crime azz!

I was at Tips Corner tavern this past weekend and Trenton Smith was up there telling his side of the story to everyone that asked. He specifically said that it was a bar fight and he went to ed deters office the following day and told ed that all antrim did was break the fight up and gasper did nothing. he doesnt want innocent men to go to prison. He said Ed still went ahead and charged the men for no reason. Pretty bad when the victim is telling the truth but Ed Deters goes ahead and tells his made up story to the news and newspaper. WOW!!! I kneew Ed Deters was crooked but I had no idea how bad he was!!!

I know states attorney has been after 2 of these boys for a long time..... he has a past with them that hurts his ego! Well, I personally will laugh in his face when he can't prove these accusations...... And let's yell 'hate crime' just because he is mixed sounds like desperate excuse not to get in trouble for being involved in a bar fight!

Wow, how can any of this still be going on if the victim is telling that 2 of the guys did nothing wrong? I suggest the 2 run this info past their lawyers yesterday.

Sounds like past issues have alot to do with this case, people passing judgement without all the facts. "Doing Time" means just that, when you serve your time for a crime then you have SERVED your time and people need to realize that, not hold it over your head for several years after the fact. I honestly have to say that this Kevin Gasper was in the wrong place at wrong time with the wrong people/person. Tack it up as a learning experience and learn by it when its all said and done, do not make the same mistake and choices again, life is about learning from our mistakes and at the age of 40ish you should be learning, or should have learned by now what to do to stay out of trouble. Good luck, I hope you don't get in anymore trouble due to your past and I hope Deters finds it in his heart to look past the hate he has and do the right thing. Hang in there Kevin.

I really don't appreciate my name being brought up, and I doubt the other girls would either. Nor do I appreciate someone anonymously speaking on my behalf.

Really? Someone disagrees with MY opinion of MY name being brought up? That's funny, I have a right to my opinion. And I was right, the other girls excluding one who I dont speak to, didn't appreciate it either. All I have to say is this: Bar fighting at all is just plain stupid, however, I wasn't there that night so I dont know what really went down. And neither do all of you who are so quick to pass judgement.

I'm a little confused. For one, the comment from "laughin" simply just mentioned the names of past and/or current friends of Coleman. I didnt see in any way shape or form how it put down Joey Joliff or the Joliff name. Actually, It kinda seemed to me that "laughin" was defending Colemans friends or used to be friends by saying that he or she doesnt know how everyone has tolerated his behavior and doings all these years. The post by "laughin" has nothing to do with how hard someone works or how much of a good man someone is. From what I can tell, every individuals name that was mentioned in the above post by "laughin" has always worked hard all their life including everyone of Colemans ex's that were mentioned. The bottom line people is Coleman is doing his time for the crime so get over it! The big issue at stake is how Deters thinks he can ruin the other two defendants lifes by charging them with same crime..in which both had no part with the altercation what-so-ever. These two innocent men have to reap the wrath and have their name slaughtered in the paper and news for being innocent. How would you feel if you were in their shoes and you were going through a nightmare like this and being innocent????? I just bet you wouldnt like it one bit! Its very apparent that Coleman had some wrong doing in this whole ordeal because he did in fact plead guilty. The other two defendants were obviously just charged because Deters knew with out them he couldnt take Coleman down to the fullest. Pretty bad that the other two defendants have had to suffer and their families as well because Deters was out for blood for Coleman. Pretty sick if you ask me! I understand that Coleman has alot of haters but get over it people and get a life....WHO CARES! Does it really matter! Obviously you care about him to use your time and strength to bash him. I hate alot a people too but I dont post their names and bash them on a forum..I pretend they dont exist because I could give two shits about them. Grow up! Plus Coleman does have a young daughter that can read everything on here. For gods sakes, think of her people...an innocent child!!! Its still her father!! Heartless Effingham County people!!!
