Who's defending him? If you are talking about my comment,I am not blaming anything he did on drugs,there's alot of people that are on drugs that don't go out robbing taxi drivers or stealing from their supposed close friends.But I will say that the crack did have everything to do with what he has done to people. I have known him for many years and yes,he's done his share of some pretty whacked shit but never,ever has he tried to assault a cab driver and rob them or sat with his close friend for hours before hand and then the second she leaves after telling him he can spend the night there if he needs to he goes and robs her of everything of value-unless he has done that before and I just never heard of it. I have always liked Chauncey and I can't say right now that I ahte him because I don't,but I can say that I am disgusted at what he did to that cab driver and to our friend because yes,she is one of my closest friends as well,so that really pisses me off that he actually did that to her. He has burned alot of bridges since he's been out,but he won't be back on the streets for a little while now but when he does get back out then those people he's ripped off will not forget what he did and will still be looking for him I'm sure. But I will say if he wasn't smoking crack like a fiend the way he was then he would not have done half of the shit he did. Everything he stole and robbing the cab driver was to get money to get more crack,plain and simple! But I was in no way "defending" him especially after what he did to my friend!

Who would think that taxi driver job does not come with its risks? I bet my left nut Mark Reese and the pharmacy on wheels had many incidents that were never reported.Even someone who is drunk and needs a ride home can be obnoxious.Hire drivers that are qualified to do the job!

Ok I thank everyone for their kind words. I don't hate Chauncey. He is where he needs to be and I'm hoping he is getting help. No I'm not working as a driver anymore as myself and husband both decided it the best for the family. So lets drop this thread and leave it alone. I just hope Chauncey you do get the help you need.

Dear Keri,I won't leave another comment after this one because you asked not to,but I just wanted to say that I am glad you are okay and safe and that the whole ordeal even happened to begin with. I have known Chauncey for years since he was a little kid and I'm not excusing his behavior by any means,but I am willing to bet that if he hadn't been smoking crack he would never have done that to you.I'm sure he had been smoking,ran out of money and needed to get more because he was coming down,so he tried to rob you to get the money to get more crack.Unless you have ever smoked crack,then you can't understand what it's like to smoke crack and start coming down off it,it is the worst feeling ever,so you do whatever you can to get more and believe me,I have seen woman do things they would never normally do for more crack even it was just for one more hit of it and it's very sad. Crack is not a drug that you can just do once and then be cool,you have to keep smoking it and smoking it and finally go to sleep if you can,but I'm thinking he was so high and starting to come down that he got it in his head to try to rob you. If you knew him not under the influence of drugs,he's not that bad of a person,but to steal from my friend like he did and sell her stuff and do what he did to you upsets me.The night he stole our friends stuff out of her home after she opened her home to him and told him he could stay if he needed to,he told me some things that happened in his childhood that he is just now coming to terms with and starting to open up about which is not very good at all,I don't do know if he tried to forget about it or what but he told me a few things and what he told me literally brought tears to my eyes and made me cry. He needs help and now that he is back being incarcerated,maybe he will be able to get the help he needs with the trauma he suffered as a child and his drug problem. But Keri,I just wanted to apologize to you,I don't know you personally but I wanted to tell you just a little bit about him. Have a good night and I am glad you have decided not to drive anymore,I think it's the best thing for you! Take care and God bless,stay safe!

(thoughts) your an idiot for starters. now our system currently likes to give people breaks such as probation, rehab,snitching,etc instead of giving them real punishment. this tactic is a huge waste of money and never works. this guy is a flat out dirtb*g and will not change.once a drugie alaways a drugie. stop sticking up for people because they smoked crack.hahaha he should be in some trouble for that too not get sympathy for it! you sound like the mom who knows her son commited murderbut cant accept it.

Chanucey has done alot of shit to people and he deserves to go to jail,he has stole from alot of people even his girlfriend,he took her debit card to get gas for her van and took $500. off it for crack,he sold her TV her phones,then he broke into this friends house took her TV,laptop and PS3 that belong to a 8 year boy,he took someones siding off there house and sold it for medal to get money for crack,he has done alot more shit to his friends that we dont know about.Its not his mothers fault for what he did cause she has tried her best with him.He has a mind of his own and doesnt care who he hurts.
