Sissyville, I tried to tell you. You had to run your mouth about something you knew nothing about, now I think you should man up and apologize.

John was a dear friend of mine and I am a better person for knowing him. I was fortunate to get to spend the early part of April with him and will never forget the memories we shared. Johns accident was a tragic one and it saddens me to read some of the posts on this blog. Shame on you for it could of happened to you or someone you know.

@ just little me

First of all where did you get the info on his autopsy? I didn't see it in the paper or the news, so what makes you think I am going to take your word for it? And before I forget, if by chance he had a heart attack then what caused it? Hmm! Could it be exactly what I said?

Until I personally hear of the cause of death then NO I will not apologize.

Drugs are ruining this society...

I completely agree that drugs are ruining our society. I always found it odd that the health dept cracks down so hard on smoking in public places but known drug dealers and places have nothing done until something explodes...literally.
with that being said I knew John and how dare you judge someone with no knowledge of them. he was a great man and his family and friends do not deserve to hear such bs...innocent until proven guilty - maybe you should have kept your horrible slanderous opinion to yourself until the autopsy report was finished u ass!!

What in the world do you mean SLANDEROUS? When you see in the paper and then on the news of a person who drives right off a cliff into a river like Thelma & Louise and doesn't even use their brakes what so ever then what is one to think other than drugs? As I said I will be man enough to apologize for my assumptions once I hear for myself that it was a medical condition....and not....

This is my last post until I hear one way or another.

Have a great day!
You really should shut up

I worked with John for over two years. Road with him as well as the other inspectors on several occasions and never once was there anything like that at all. Never once did I even get the hint that he was doing something like drugs. Great guy to work with. I wouldnt believe it if they said it any way. And you can believe that I am somebody that hates drugs and dislikes people who even use a little...including this sissy person or whoever.

I did not know him, but my goodness, why speak such cruel things about someone who has died so tragically. I occassionally read topix of charleston and am amazed at such cruel things people say about another person. If you don't like someone, remember, there are 10 people that did like them. and another thing, HATE only hurts YOU.

To whom it may concern

I aplogize sincerely for what I have said about Mr Damron and I do believe that he was a good man who did not deserve the accusations I made. And to his friends (and especially family) I am sorry for your loss.

Every word I just said comes from my heart, I am sorry!

God Bless.

Yes my apology was sincere, but if others still want to criticize me for me earlier statements then that is alright with me, because I desereve it. I actually saw where the DEP softball team dedicated their corporate cup tournament this year in honor of Mr Damron and I thought that was nice.

Once again I will make a formal apology to all concerned and especially his family.

God Bless

Dear friend
You picked a nice time to be calling someone retarded you stupid ass S.O.B. Even someone retarded knows better than to drive off a cliff which apparently is what your darling little friend did. Allow the autopsy to speak for itself instead of you! If it turns out to be a medical problem then I will be man enough to get back on here and apologize and YES i mean that. But not until i hear the truth.
You know the word retarded is also cruel!! I hope nobody is mentally challenged in your family!
