I WENT TO GRADE SCHOOL WITH JASON. I HADN'T SEEN HIM IN MANY YEARS, BUT I WAS SORRY TO HEAR THAT HE HAD BEEN KILLED. MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY GOES OUT TO HIS FAMILY DURING THIS TIME OF LOSS. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU...

I want to express my sympathy to the Lawsons also. I Knew Jason somewhat, and it would have taken alot to take him down. There is more to the story than what is being told. Think about it.

Hi got what he needed. my name is Lorraine and I am Jason's sister. How dare you have the audacity to say that my brother "got what he needed"I dont believe anyone needs to be stabbed and die. Jason made some bad decisions in his life. We all have. I am guessing that you have too. He most certainly did not deserve to suffer as he did. no one deserves that. My family has suffered an immeasurable loss. I hope your family never has to go through what we have. you may want to read the Bible to remind yourself that our place is not to judge, and let he who is without sin cast the first stone. He was a son, father, brother, uncle and friend. You are a coward for not posting your name after making such a horrific statement. You are obviously very ignorant to post such a statement for my family to read, and to hurt us so much. i will be more than happy to discuss this further should you chose, privately thru email. i ask that you stop posting hurtful things, if you have the courage to do so.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF YOU WHO POSTED SYMPATHY AND CONCERN FOR OUR FAMILY. WE ARE HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME, AND WE MISS HIM VERY MUCH.
I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU RESPONDED TO THE ABOVE POST! I CAN'T BELIEVE SOMEONE COULD SAY SOMETHING SO MEAN & HURTFUL AT SUCH A TRAGIC TIME!! I HAVE A BROTHER WHO IS IN JAIL RIGHT NOW FOR MAKING BAD CHOICES. HE & JASON ACTUALLY SPENT A GOOD LITTLE BIT OF TIME IN JAIL TOGETHER. BUT EVEN THOUGH THEY MADE BAD CHOICES DOESN'T MEAN THAT THE FAMILY MEMEBERS EVER STOP LOVING THEM & PRAYING THAT THEY GET THEIR LIVES STRAIGHTENED OUT. I WAS ALWAYS TOLD THAT IF YOU CAN'T SAY SOMETHING NICE THEN DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL! I THINK THE PERSON ABOVE NEEDS TO TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION, BEFORE THEY SAY ANYTHING ELSE!! AGAIN, I AM TRULY SORRY FOR YOU & YOUR FAMILY'S LOSS. I PRAY THAT GOD PULLS YOU ALL THROUGH THIS VERY DIFFICULT TIME. MAY GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY....

IF THE GUY(EMANUEL) WAS SUCH A KID, WHY WAS HE HERE DEALING DRUGS LIKE ONE OF THE BIG BOYS?? IT ISN'T LIKE HE IS AN INNOCENT. HE IS A DRUG DEALER FROM THE BIG CITY & BELIEVE YOU ME, IN THE CITY PLAYING HIS GAME AT 18 YOU ARE EITHER WITH IT OR YOU ARE IN DEEP CRAP! I AM SORRY, BUT ALL OF HIS DRUGS & MONEY WASN'T WORTH JASON LOSING HIS LIFE. MONEY & DOPE CAN BE REPLACED, A LIFE CAN'T BE!

Emmanual wasn't a kid, he was 18. 18 is an adult incase you didn't know that... Jason was not innocent, but neither was Emmanual, and what Emmanual did was ten times worse. And Jason did not get what he deserved, he did wrong, but he most certainly didn't deserve to die. Mike Martin is the one who set this all up, but he's in jail now for murder now, so he really got what he deserved :) So what Jason had a hammer and a crowbar? Emmanual had a knife, but no one seems to be paying attention to that. Emmanual still has his life, Jason doesn't. I'm just thankful Emmanual and Mike are locked up.

So your saying it was OK for Jason to Attack Emmanuel and him not try to take up for himself ? So if Jason Killed Emmanuel that would have been ok with you ?

I have said one hundred freaking times before that it was not okay for Jason to try to rob him like that, and I don't blame Emmanuel for defending himself, but he took it WAY too far. How do you know he was going to kill him, maybe he was just going to take the money and go. No it wouldn't have been okay, but are you saying it's okay that Emmanuel killed Jason? Because it sure as hell isn't.

My Mom did not bad mouth him. He went to jail when I was three, I never got the chance to know him until this year. I didn't turn my back on him, I let him back into my life. I claim him, and I spent as much time with him as I possibly could. You are seriously pathetic to get on here and run your mouth about things you have no freakin idea about. You weren't his family, you didn't know him like we do. So shut the hell up.

This is a small town , people went to school with him and seen how he was . Yes alot of people know him and about him . Just because he was into drugs and shit doesn't mean that everyone who knew him was , That is freaking stupid to say . I for one have never done drugs ever or even been introuble . So that is a big negative . Just because that is how you knew the men involved doesnt make that true for everyone......

Cheyenne didn't turn her back on him. They were extremely close. How the hell would you even know? Incase you haven't noticed, she's been on this website sticking up for Jason, so of course she claims him. So it's pretty obvious she loves him. Jason meant everything to Karen, I never heard her say one bad thing about him, to him, or to anyone else. It would help if you actually knew and were close to Cheyenne or Karen. Stop being so ignorant, dumbass.

I have known the Lawson family for a very long time. They are the kindest people I have met, and in this world there are few people you can say that about. Jason is gone, no amount of "discussion" will bring him back or change the legacy he left. This board could be an uplift to his family, it could be a warning to young people who are walking in Jason's footsteps even now. No one puts their shoes on in the morning with the intention of the undertaker removing them that evening.

I worked in the legal system for 7 years. Never think for a minute that this couldn't happen to you or your family. I have seen people that were "pillars of society" that did things that would have made Jason blush. I have seen people walking a path deeper in crime than Jason could have imagined that continued to only bury themselves with no hope. Split second decisions made in a moment of anger or desperation have destroyed lives and homes and even communities. Bill, Karen, Lorraine, Cheyenne and the rest of the family are left here. Comfort them, love them and do what you can to remember the good things about Jason, because there were good things. Lots of good things :)

Out of the heart the mouth speaks - so your hateful words only show the blackness and ugliness of your own soul. Are you so much better than Jason if your inside is so full of twisted hate that you gain pleasure from attempting to hurt his family or further degrading his memory? Jason is gone, you can't hurt or touch him any longer. My advice to you would be to look at yourself, how do you measure up? If you were half the person you think you are you wouldn't need to write nasty spiteful notes on a message board. If your mind is as addled with hatred as it appears to be, I would recommend you seek help before your fate is one worse than Jason's and your family is the one left facing the loss of a loved one and spiteful comments from others like you.

[How nice it is to see such a wise response to all of the hoopla. I continue to ask that CHRIST helps all of Jason's family through such a traumatic time. My heart, tears forever, and Love go out to them.]

sounds like Jason helped you out a lot as a child and you have respect for him. That is good that some people can remember the good things he did also. It goes to show you that he wasn't as bad as everyone around here claims he was. Hey we all make mistakes in our lives, unfortunately the last mistake he made cost him his life. I feel for the family and all of his friends. He was obviously a modern day Robin Hood in your life and right now, we need more hero's around here.
