MR. FRYE why dont you just go ahead and cancel all sporting events at the school since neither the players nor certain students seem to know how to conduct themselves in a civilized manner.

my son goes to dyersburg and i am so sorry this happened. it is so tragic. my prayers are for the young man who was injured and his family. 2 lives have been changed forever when their lives hadn't even started. my heart goes out to all involved. sad very sad. please kids think before you act. you can't change it after the fact but you can before. what seems to be a big issue now will not be one in the future.

look everyone is making adam out to be a monster and thats not the case. the kid from crockett had followed adam with some other boys trying ti jump him. they tried to get adam out of the car butadam is not going to get out to get beat up. the other kid wanted to be a hard a$$ and stand in the middle of the road so adam would get out of the car. adam then sped up thinking the other kid would be smart enough to move. so i feel like it was bad decision making on both parts. do not sit there and judge adam like that because anyone of us could have done the same thing. please pray for both families involed! One young man is seriously injured and another has to begin his life a an adult in prison.

I know you arehurting for your friend but both kids were wrong in this situation. I will pray for you and the hurt you are feeling but please do not get on here talking about adam like that. BOTH kids made a bad decisio and now BOTH of them are dealing with the consequences. I wish your fried the best but you need to pray about the way you are feeling and for adam. It says in the bible to pray for your enemies and try to forgive. you ar too young to go the rest of your life holding a grudge like that. my prayers are with you and everyone involved. God Bless

Are you kidding me???!!! No, we are not making Adam out to be a monster..we are simply telling the truth about him! He premeditated the murder of Riley Ward!!! For those of you who don't know, I have been told that Riley passed away yesterday. My condolences go out to his family, AND Adams family for the death of Riley, and the suffering that Adams family will now have to endure in knowing that their son is nothing but a COLD BLOODED KILLER !!! What else do you call in when someone deliberately runs another human being down??!! He had the choice to stop, but he didn't. I hope our justice system gets their head out of their butt, and throws the key away when Adam is sentenced!!! May God have mercy on Adams soul, because nobody in Dyer County should!!!!!

see thats the problem with this place. you do not know wht you would have done in this situation. the other kid wanted to be big and bad and he got what he deserved. that was the consequence of HIS ACTIONS. adam will also have to face the consequences of HIS ACTIONS too. the kid had no intention of killing the kid and in all honesty the boy should not have stood in font of the car! they were trying to get adam out of the car so they could jump him. adam didn't just drive down the street and decide to run someone over for the hell of it. LIKE I SAID IT WAS A BAD DECISION MADE BY BOTH BOYS AND NOW BOTH OF THEM ARE DEALING WITH THE CONSEQUENCES. I am not gonna sit here and talk about the other boy like e is asaint because he got hurt. he was trying to be hard and adam was trying to be harder. the kid should ot have stood in the middlee of the rod and he ould not have gotten hit period!

Does anybody think maybe Adam may have feared for his life and that this could have been self defense

Riley Ward is a good kid and did not deserve what happened to him - no one deserves such pain he is going thru. You don't just run over someone. Once it is done you can't take it back like talking. He is 18 and knew what he was doing. People need to change their lives and live the right path. Riley is improving but very slowly. With God all things are possible. People need to remember this.
