i believe everything will come out in the trial, i am sorry for your loss but i believe your family isn't the only family who has lost and i dont think the BigJohn i know would have just shot someone for no reason.

So what are you saying?Murder is murder and Bruce is gone. So take up for him the murderer. Sandra can not talk to her husband. so you defend a murderer. See what happens.

maybe you should look up the definition of murder
1: the crime of unlawfully killing a person especially with malice aforethought
and so you further understand
afore·thought
: previously in mind : premeditated, deliberate
so murder isn't just murder yes bruce is dead and bigjohn had the gun but they were friends and i know bigjohn didnt mean to kill him. sometimes people need to worry about themselves instead of others. bruce,bobby,bigjohn, and the rest of there party was all really drunk and at least 2 of them made the wrong decision.

So when is his court date? The one whom the gun belonged too made the wrong decision to pull it out. Oh well ,I guess being drunk justifies death. No I don't think so.

There has to be a court date. There was a life taken. I'll just call the court house.We know Bruce only lives in his family and friends hearts for he was shot just as Amanda has said.

So he's out on bond. That must be interesting for him. I'm sure justice will be served to the Knowles Family soon.
