Here is to all the dumb azzez who think that marijuana is safe, and that it's not dangerous. Now for all the people to some and say, "If they legalized it this wouldn't happen." It's always one excuse or the other.

Well, um, why would this have happened if pot was legal? Can you ...expound... on that?

But seriously, I'll be on your side the second a giant, bloodthirsty marijuana bush wearing a John Rambo headband barges into a post office and starts laying waste to civilians with its AK-47.

First question: Why would this have happened if pot were legal?
Answer: It wouldn't have.

This killing was over a Marijuana Sale, not Crack, not Meth, not Cocaine, not pills. The story is specific. The guy was killed over a MARIJUANA deal gone bad. Now tell me the ol' stink weed aint worth killin a man over. You don't really think he was killed for the simple "Principle of the Thing" do you? Of course not. Three Dam bullet holes is a little bit 'overkill' for just the "principle of the thing."

People have killed for a dam sight less. This was just a case of two losers with a gun. The same could be said of fighting over a woman, a truck, or meth, cocaine, or heroin. Marijuana is not the criminal, the A.H. with the gun is.

LOL, the victim's last name is "White," one of the suspects is "Bright" and the other suspect lives on "Dark Corner Road." Just struck me as strange.

And the odds are the gun was obtained illegally. The whole lot is a bunch of criminals, dealing in an illegal substance, and most end up either dead, or in prison.

No one said that Marijuana was the criminal. But it certainly is not simply a case of 2 losers with a gun. Don't get mad because this was over the ganja that you love so much. It just was.

Trying to get their own way over what? Marijuana! Just say it, it's not that hard. This shooting was over the 'non-dangerous' drug. MARIJUANA!!!! I'm sorry it's so hard for you to understand.

I KNOW THE GUY THAT PULLED THE TRIGGER. HE IS A GOOD MAN. HE NEVER INTENDED TO HURT NO ONE. THE GUY THAT GOT KILLED ALSO HAD A GUN PULLED OUT ON BRIGHT. WHAT WOULD ANY ONE ELSE DO, IF THEY HAD A GUN POINTED AT THEM. HARD QEUSTION TO ANSWER HUH.... IM SORRY FOR THE VICTOMS FAMILY ALSO. IT MUST BE VERY HARD ON THEM RIGHT NOW. BUT LETS FACE IT'' THEY ALL SHOULD HAVE NOT BEEN DOING WHAT THEY WERE DOING. THEY ALL HAVE FAMILY AND KIDS. THERE COMES A TIME WHEN YOU HAVE TO CHOOSE WHATS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE. FUN, DRUGS, OR FAMILY. I CHOOSE FAMILY.

I agree with you.

Greed and a larcenous mentality were the motivators and the real crime.

The legality of or whether marijuana is harmless or not doesn't even fit the equation.

Your all wrong, it was not a drug deal gone bad, the gunman was not a good man, Timmothy was not an angel but certainly did not deserve death. It was a set up plain and simple, Tim was trying his best to get his life on track, and some idiot with a gun over something stupid took him from us, and I for hope his mom never has to read people debateing his death over the freaking internet.

So even though a drug was mentioned, you're saying this is not what it's over? Please, give your insight. What is this "stupid" thing that it was really over. What "stupid" thing caused someone their life.

The Daily Courrier and various news channels have not and will not publish this entire story. They can't.

Tim's murder is not a platform for you to go on a crusade about the dangers of marijuana. That is very disrespectful. You disgust me.

We as a community will never know the true story, just as the majority of Rutherford County will never understand things they are not dirtectly involved with.

With that said, I must say this:
You live by the gun you die by the gun.
