Bradley Stanistreet is a scumbag and should be burned at the stake.

Bradley Stanistreet was in attendance at a Westmoreland Basketball game just this evening. I didn't and still don't know this person, but he chose to yell and swear during the game. Myself and another parent asked him to keep up the noise and support of the Bulldogs but not to swear. He continued and started to swear at both of us, fathers and responsible adults. I went to the Principal, who was also in attendance and Bradley Stanistreet was asked to leave the school. Both of us recieved many "thank yous" from other responsible adults in attendance. I thanked the Principal and a few short minutes later we defeated the RCH Redwings and everyone went home.

It seems to me taht Bradley Stanistreet still hasn't learned how to make any better decisions since his involvement in the tragedy at Camelot. I hope that something can be done to help him understand that we are not going to stand for this type of behavior in our presence.

these boys made there own decisions and it is obvious brad does not care about anything. he is still on drugs and partys very frequently. if he was truly sorry he would not be continuing what got him in this situation in the first place. there is no one person who was right in this situation. i went to school with brad and anyone who knows him and didnt see this coming is a complete moron

I hope Brad likes salami, because he's going to be eating a lot of it in the big house. So to speak.

You may have went to school with Brad and/or have seen him acting childish. FINE. Beacause you swear a lot or yell or do whatever at basketball games DOES NOT MEAN THAT HE HAS THE INTENTIONS TO KILL SOMEONE. None of you know him and NONE OF YOU WERE THERE THAT NIGHT. Brad would never kill anyone, and he DID NOT hit Carl Hill with a pool ball. Carl Hill and his friends followed these kids to Westmoreland, trouble was bound to happen, its unfortunate very unfortunate it had to go this far. HOWEVER, EVERY SINGLE PERSON INVOLVED CAN BE "SCUMMY" for having whatever involvement, you sit here and try to put the blame just on Brad?? None Of You REALLY KNOW NOW DO YOU? Keep your mouths shut.. your very quick to judge but other students at westmoreland and other kids at basketball games swear and get loud at games and go to parties just like Brad,so how those kids will kill someone? i dont think so.. so stop judging, the truth will come out, and all of you can rot in hell for saying horrible unnecesscary comments on a stupid comment board about an incident you have no clue on what really happened. ALL STUPID pathetic people on here. you really have got to be kidding? if any of you have children and they had to be so unfortunate to go through this, you wouldnt appreciate this. all i can say about you lowlifes is WOW

Its understandable why people have negative views about the kids involved in the fight. If i were from a different town, i probably would say the same. You really dont think about things the same when you KNOW the people, and when you KNOW what really happened in the fight. The fact that someone died as a result of this is unacceptable, horrible and unfortunate.. but we have to realize westmoreland are not the only guilty ones. Rome also had weapons, death could have happened to anyone, on any side. Rome actually started the fight. The fact that weapons were involved makes westmoreland and rome both in the wrong, and obviously westmoreland kids more wrong considering the death. But how can you judge and blame when noone knows what really happened? noone knows these kids. Blaming one person might make you people feel better about what happened, but the truth is the truth is unknown. Everyone in this situation is going through hell. Some of the kids who are being charded are GOOD HEARTED KIDS, who never ever meant to kill someone, which yes thats no excuse it still happened. but before you people depict and cut down the kids involved, rememember that it could happen in your town. your friends. i sure as hell never thought it would happen to people i know. the whole situation is fucked up but cutting others down when you have no idea what your talking about only makes matters worse, how are you people any better, this is where it starts, judgign people, calling people names, hating poeple you dont even know. this was never meant to happen and everyone is sorry for the death of carl hill, and justice will be served for the people who deserve it, so just stay out of things and keep your comments to yourself, they do nothing but start trouble and hurt poeple who read these comments, and i think enough people have been hurt through this whole thing.

i was hoping that all of the kids involved learned a lesson from all this but after today i don't think that all of the rome kids learned nothing. a life was lost, kids lost thier father, a mom lost her son, a boyfrind, brother and friend. wake up this vilance needs to stop. also, after reading these comments i can see there is alot of simple minded people in this world.

Sorry, but "good hearted kids" don't slam a cue ball into a man's skull so hard that bone shards are shoved into his brain. That's what savages do, not civilized human beings.

Am I judging people? You bet, and I've taught my children to do the same. Perhaps if the parents involved didn't have such an insular, non-judgemental attitude ("Keep your comments to yourself!") their offspring wouldn't be facing such a bleak and hopeless existence.

I'm from Westmo and know both of the defendants. Kevin's not a bad kid, just stupid as fuck and makes bad decisions. Everyone knows this, but Brad Stanistreet is a whole different league. The kid's been a straight up loser since he was in middle school. Brad will see jail time for this, but it shouldn't be 25 years, it should be 2-5 years. And the witnesses shouldn't all be trusted either, especially the girl who can't get her story straight. But I guess this is what happens when scums get drunk and kill each other.
Basically, this was a fight between scumbags. Carl Hill had a baby and his 18 year old girlfriend was pregnant again, yet he was out at a party all night. He must have been a great dad, and amazing boyfriend.

this whole thing is fucked up, but you know what I've been to/thrown parties in westmo for years and I've seen more than my share fair of fights and brawls with rome, w' boro, clark mills kids and whoever else but we never put pool balls in socks or used baseball bats..... we sobered up and forgot about it. I belive fighting is a part of life but these kids took it too far. Just my opinion.

One need only read the testimony from the trial to get a firm grasp of what a fine, upstanding man Brad is. It's too bad his family wasn't this concerned *before* he bashed a man's skull in during a drunken rage. Blood will tell, indeed.

i am also a family member of brad's and sarah your right, if you don't know the person don't write these rid. comments about him. there were other people involved in this beating. don't single out brad just because of things you are hearing from the (unreliable) witnesses. no he wasn't a perfect child but come on, who is nowadays and he has never done anything remotely like this before. he's a good kid and he deserves better than the liars he's getting up on the witness chair
