With the command of the english language you seem to have, I would think that any company that would have you as a manager must be some real freaking joke! What the frigg is your job, telling people where to set up the tables at a freaking flea maket???

You can't be serious? Why would I not post my real name on a public forum discussing a known criminal drug dealer? Gee, that's a hard on to figure out...
That "man" was a disgusting human being, and a drunk to boot. The family should be entitled to nothing. Perhaps they should deduct the settlement amount from the large sum that family has already acquired from us taxpayers in welfare and food stamps. Given he walked around with a dealer's roll in his pocket and flashed it in our business on more than on occasion (until he was told not to enter the property anymore as we had him on camera "dealing" in our parking lot), then they should have never been entitled to that welfare money to begin with.
so, if he was on video "dealing" why wasn't he arrested then???

Abolish the Massachusetts State Police.
The car was in park when he shot Johnson.
Officer Gray lied.
Did Johnson put the car in park after he was shot dead?

Lets see. This guy does 4 years for shooting at Fitchburg college students (which hope will argue must have been a frame job), had his license suspended indefinitely, and was driving drunk and high at which time he rammed police cruisers. Bad things happen to bad people.

Car in park, where did you read that. You and hope are 2 idiots that should get together and share the brain cells you have left.

Let's see Hope, is anything that I said untrue? Did he not server 4 years. Did test show he was high and drunk? What part of that is incorrect?

Bad things happen when you are stupid and run from the police.

Wouldn't the police have put the vehicle in park after the shooting? Wouldn't that be part of the protocol to secure the vehicle?

Hey, bonehead, the cops are supposed to secure the area, putting the car in park is part of that as it is obvious that a dead sack of excrement can't do it!

A. Read my previous posts. He died only a few days later.
B. Have you even met the man? Or who he associated with? I'm sorry Fitchburg has a drug problem, but business owners in another town are not about to bring the Fitchburg drug dealers' wrath down on them by turning in Mr. Johnson. We just are NOT that stupid.
C. Suffice it to say many were relieved when he was no longer in existence.

Has a Heart?? You are looking for sympathy for a lowlife career criminal, who in effect caused his own demise by contnually breaking the law, the last incident resulting in his death.Get real, ther was little resemblanc between this dead turd and a human being. No sorrow, no tears, no regrets from this guy! I just hope that litter of mini-turds you call his children can take a lesson from this whole thing, act like him, end up like him.

Wow u sound like a real heartless ignorant individual, to say the least.. Let me put it to you this way, there is only ONE that is supposed to say when we are to die and he is not on earth so what gives you the right to judge his family whom are in fact the victims in this case and u probably do not know them at all .. so u need to shut ur mouth and think before, you speak... That was a very unthoughtful thing to say..
