So I take it you were there? how else would you know he was there... You seen him leave drunk? You didn't offer him a ride? You're a good citizen. Pat yourself on the back.

Innocent till proven guilty. I like it how everyone screams foul before we even see what is going to happen. I want to see what he gets out of it and whether he was drunk. I mean, won't there be a trial? And that boy who got ran over had a lot of kin, I don't think things would sit well if justice is not done.

he was arrested for DUI and manslaughter you idiot! The last time I checked DUI stood for driving under the influence so you saying you are going to wait to see if he was drunk before judging just made you sound almost as dumb as the jerk that is now free from jail after killing an innocent man who was walking home from work. What i dont understand about this town is they arrest people for all kinds of shit but they only keep the people in jail who mess with drugs and let pedophiles, DUI cases and murders get out on a really low bail and then when they are related to the officials here in this damn town they try and cover it up by trying to blame the victim by saying they was walking in the middle of the street. This man is guilty of driving drunk and murder in the first degree not manslaughter. I say this because the jerk stopped after hitting Mike and sit there a second and then took off went down the road turned around and came back and sit again and then left and called some one to come get him and when the friend picked him up they asked him what happened to his truck and he waited until he got to his dad's house which is the coroner of Carrollton to tell his friend and even then his friend did not report it so his friend should face manslaughter charges at least. Anyone that knows about this town knows that it will be covered up though because of who the murder is

Its sad people want to act like this guy done nothing wrong. Hey its okay if he's your buddy I'm sure he didn't want to hurt anyone just out having a few drinks. But what he done was wrong I don't care how you want to try to justifiy hitting someone when u have had 1 drink 2 drinks or 3 if u blew over the legal limit that's murder. When that guy hit that bus full kids on I 71 do u really think he did that intentionally . Nooooo he was drunk and irresponsible. And he had to do his time I don't know this James I'm sure hes a nice guy but still guilty of murder. I did see mike a few times at Kroger and have seen him walking on the side of the road just think if it were your son, brother, cousin, or family member
