Duncan Donuts needs to get a defense lawyer hired, you can bet $ that a liability suit will be following with a claim that they knowingly allowed this kids to hang out in their parking lot on the big rock facing Lakeview Ave,.all we will hear is that this thug andrew sockley was a real good kid who never did anything like this before and it was the caffine from Duncan Donuts that made him commit the act of violence or some other lame escuse.

Andrew Shockley really is a good kid even though I know no one is going to believe me. He has been a good friend of my brothers for many years. Im not trying to say that he didn't commit a horrible crime but there is no way he is a "thug". I know people are going to argue me on this but I know andrew personally and he isn't some kid that walks around picking fights. I also wish Mike Peasley a quick and full recovery.

"annonomous" is immature and should grow up some day
and generally people who point fingers have three of their own pointing back at them

and Andrew should erase some of his supposed friends cus it seems some of them are 2 faced Back stabbers

"It's horrible, it's not usual for Dracut" said John Grugan, of Dracut. "For Lowell or Boston it's par for the course but it's very unusual for Dracut.
It's a town away....from Lowell.

The only reason this kid andrew shockley did this was over a tiny bit of money and over a scumbag loser tom coughlin..... this kid wanted to look cool and couldnt control his anger over absolutely nothing..... peasley didnt deserve anything close to what happend to him. I hope shockley gets a little more then just aggrevated assuault w/ a shod foot cuz he'll only serve 5-7......lets hope he gets alittle more then that
He could end up with alot more than that like life if this kid dont come out of it.Does anyone know how he is doing,I do not know the kid but I feel really bad for him.

I thought the same thing of that quote...how ignorant and blind of someone so "superior" to Lowell or Boston to think that such a thing couldnt' happen in their own backyard. I hear this all to often...unfortunately the media typically quotes those that are 55 years old and still live with their parents in their basement...which my guess is Mr. Grugan does.

I don't care if you live in Lincoln, Concord, or Lowell...crime happens everywhere...some towns are just good at burying the news from the media or in some cases (LIKE DRACUT) the police are good at dumping your scum criminals off in Lowell with loaded weapons to committ carjackings in Lowell..how soon we forget Mr Grugan..crime in Dracut even hits the town hall, remember your chum out there that was caught "stealing" water from Lowell to benefit his own residents? This clown needs to get out of his shell that he lives in in Dracut and read/watch the media sometimes...there is plenty of crime in Dracut. If you need a list of all criminal events that occured in Dracut I could probably dig it up for you.

Kudos To you! I've known Andrew his whole life, He is a sweet kind kid. I know there are a lot of underlying issues he has. Some of you would be mordified by the stuff this kid went thru I never thought he would lose it, he was always cool, calm and collected. Give the shirt off his back if you needed it. He was a walking timebomb for quite a few years, I guess. Unfortunately, he is the parent to his parents.(I say this because I know them as well.) Too bad he didn't have a better foundation.

"Par for the course" in Lowell and Boston? Come on man. Let me name a few dirty things in clean Dracut. Superintendents(water dept), cops"where's the dope?I don't know.", and there are probably just as many domestics as there is in Lowell. Looks like your kids are thugs too, just like "Lowell and Boston". Come out of the fog, it's in your back yard too.

If this was a planned fight over drugs and peasley dies (i hope not but he could he was airlifted to boston) shockley could get murder in the first degree which has a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. Think before you act people. Hes still going to get some time and lets hope they dont send him to MCI walpole....that place turns even the toughest into punks (the definition of punk is someone who takes it...in the ass). So yea he is going to get time no matter what unless the Massachusetts liberals let him out. Being a Dealer wont help his case either.

I guarantee this shockley punk won't be so tough after he spends a couple hours in a cell with some bubba.

Shocks is a good kid, peasly shoots heroin and steals off people the kids straight trouble for anyone to think anything otherwise is stupid. Andrew obviously did something wrong but from how it seems it wasn't intentional. People saying he should get life is unbelievable considering that peasly didnt deserve a life and Andrew doesn't deserve to loose his.
