Natalie,

I'm so sorry for you and your family. I am enraged with how this ended, in an illegal execution. I would love to attend any memorial services for Aaron. He deserves a proper sendoff.

Illegal execution my ass! This scumbag had killed two innocent people, shot previously at law enforcement people, had an assault rifle in his hand with his finger on the trigger. His own family had said Bassler would never be taken alive! You think these people were just going to stand there as Aaron started spraying them with bullets? Have you ever seen the damage one of those rapid fire weapons can do in just seconds? If there was ever a rationale for "shoot to kill" this was it! Take your "poor little Aaron" bleeding heart sentiment elsewhere! As usual not a word of compassion or sympathy in your post for the families of the two innocent and dead victims of Aaron's barbaric prior activity! Disgusting!

Yeah let's have a memorial service for a mentally unbalanced, cold blooded multiple murderer! Maybe we can persuade the authorities to release Charles Manson to say a few kind words about the departed. If I was a member of the family or friend of one of two innocent people that was killed by this maniac I would be so offended by even the suggestion of a memorial service...but what do you care about them?

WTF do you know about the situation? What you've read in the papers? It was a juicy story, wasn't it? Did you know that the authorities were notified on numerous occasions that there was someone in the area (carrying an assault rifle in one hand and bottle of booze in the other) where Melo was shot, and they chose to do nothing about it? These reports came in for months. Did you know that Melo went there to confront this person, because the authorities wouldn't bother? STFU, you apathetic pig.

Oh go f*** yourself in the ass you moron! I'll believe what I read in the paper before I believe any BS from a cold blooded murderer defending imbecile like you! The facts ware two innocent people were killed by this deranged killer, he had shot at law enforcement officers searching for him a few days ago and he was armed and ready to kill again. He had plenty of chances to surrender to authorities. He got what was coming to him! Not a word of sympathy about the two innocent deceased or their families or friends by any of you sanctimonious sob sisters! Talk about apathy! It's all about what a nice boy Aaron USED TO BE and boo hoo for his family. His family was not responsible for Aaron's behavior and nobody is blaming them but we damn sure are blaming Aaron for the unspeakable carnage he was responsible for. Same goes for his violent demise...no one responsible for that but Aaron himself!

Agreed that's what the killer Aaron Bassler was no matter how many people are trying to put a different spin on it and make him look like a nice guy and a victim of society and police brutality.

In case you didn't hear, law enforcement gave him his proper sendoff. Now he's cooking in Hell.

I'd be happy to give that lowlife a proper sendoff. When I did, you would hear a loud flushing sound.
