I never said anything about it being a hate crime or extreme hate being involved, that was kooky, I asked how would it be a hate crime. at first I was thinking by hate crime he meant it involved race, which wouldn't have made sense because Don is half white.
Not judging you Kevin (my name too), just was trying to figure your line of thinking. No harm, no foul.

I'm going to put it blunt, right out there.
It doesnt matter, why he did it. He did it. Over 130 times. If you knew details, there wouldnt be any of this questioning. Give me a fucking break already. I've been going over this all in my head everyday, more than once a day since the second I found out Chris was dead. What happened?

My fiancee put it perfectly, the average fight lasts what 2-3 minutes? Aside from boxing and such sports. Think about how long 130 times would take. Think about the mess it would make. Think about the fact that we never really "know" anyone. And now imagine yourself if you will, walking into your garage, to find your son, your brother, your oldest friend,or your dad, brutally mangled to a pulp, stabbed over 130 times, and tell me...you tell me, what you would say if the fucker said it was self defense.

I agree honey. I am frustrated. Pissed off. I wanted to kill that punk myself at first, but that would have made me no better than him. I've never had a close friend who was murdered before, and now I know what this type of frustration is like. I miss Chris every day. I'm not sure who you are, but I'd guess you're his sister, or someone else very close. I'm Trent's dad.

that's what I was thinking about when I first heard it was that many times. not only would that take quite a bit of time, but you would just be obliterating somebody by stabbing them that many times, regardless of how many different places you stabbed them.

when is the trial supposed to start?

I think there is one more "pre-trial" this week, then next week (23'rd?) I believe it starts. I will try to find out more.

Cook will stand trial October 6 in Wayne County Circuit Court. The first degree murder charge has been reduced to second degree (what total bullshit) but the prosecutor is trying to re-instate the first degree charge. Cook should be in jail for life.

If you knew Chirs, you would also know that he was friends with Don. You also probably knew he would get involed with a lot of horrible stuff. I've known both of them forever. This never should of happened to Chris, it was awful and Don shouldn't get away with it. But don't you think drugs could of had something to with it? Or since noones stories in the case are matching up, that possibly he is covering for someone. Dont judge, you really have no right or know everything about this case.

You may have known Chris, but you apparently didn't like him very much. Your disregard for his life leads me to believe that. His horrible should not have happened, you are correct in saying that, but act like you give a damn (if you really do). If the kid confessed, I have every right to judge. I don't care about any cicumstances you feel may be involved. Stabbing someone is excessively violent and outright insane. That little f*cker Cook needs to be put to death himself, but I'd rather pay my tax dollars so he stays in prison for life, if only to make him feel EVERY DAY the heartache he caused Chris' real friends and family. Screw Cook. I have absolutely no considreation for him whatsoever. You end a life, you forfeit your own.

Is the trial open to the public? Are there records open yet?

If anything I want to attend the sentencing.

Cook was sentenced this past Monday (11/10) to 27-50 years in prison for his role in the murder of Chris Amore. If there's any justice in this world, the little punk will do most of that time.

Don deserved more than 27-50, and after he tried to get out of his plea deal at the last second I'm glad the judge laid it out for him. His pleas for forgiveness in the courtroom made me sick to my stomach. He feels no remorse for what he did, screaming to Chris's family that he was just trying to help Chris. Last time I checked killing someone isn't exactly the number one way of helping. I hope he rots in jail for the rest of his pathetic life for what he did. Screaming that it wasen't fair. What wasen't fair is the fact that Chris is no longer with us, that because of him we are left here picking up the peices. Dealing one day at a time, that Chris isn't going to call, or just stop by to see what was going on. That the number one person I used to call when I needed help with something isn't there. I'll never again stop by my parents house to find Bella tied up on the porch and Chris there hanging out with my Mom watching tv. Whats not fair Don is the fact that you took something that you had no right taking and all your getting is 27-50 years to think about it.

Cook is a piece of shit. It doesn't matter that drugs were involved. You don't almost saw someone's neck off to help them out.

He deserves to be stabbed over 134 times, the same way he murdered Chris.

At least we are raping him of his life and when he gets out he'll be fucked. Because I'll never get to see Chris's smile or his laugh. Or smell him. Or crack jokes with him. Never again. and I am in shock about this. So anyone that says Cook didn't get a fair trail is a moron.

i know its been a while, but chris will always be missed by me and the rest of his loved 1s. Chris and i had plans, we had talked about having him relocate out to Texas, where i am, i had a job lined up for him, we were just waitin on the right time, so he could gather a lil money to get out of the D.....and now i can't help to think, "if only?" i sometimes blame myself for not trying hard enough, but i know it's not really my fault. anywho i just wanted to vent a lil, and to any1 who reads this and knows who i am, in the words of my bro Chris, what'dup doe
