Honestly, this is ridiculous. To break in is one thing, but to have to beat this poor elderly man just to get items that you obviously didn't cover your tracks well enough becuase they were confinscated today. What is this world coming to. I'm sure to say "Hey i'm going to set you on fire" would had been enough for the man to say take whatever, but to beat him? Hopefully 2 of the 6 suspects are the ones involved and sentenced. Exactly what was done to Mr. Needs should be done to these guys, once they've suffered in jail till there 80. To the Need family, my prayers are with you!

Did I just read that after this old guy got beat up one of his family members was showing him how to use a gun and accidentally shot him in the hand?! Man it's so ridiculous it's almost funny. First almost beaten to death by a gang of drug addicts then shot in the hand by own family member. Next week Rover the beloved family dog gets rabies and attacks old man viciously. This guy has got nothing but bad luck. It's only up from this point on.

This is sad and is a disheartening depiction of what are society has come to. Things like this I will never understand. Cause whether the guy had a gun or not, you know they could have simply flinched at him and he would have complied with whatever they asked. I definitely hope the culprits get what they deserve, and some!

Hopefully someone will be found guitly. It is disfusting to think that someone could do this to an elderly individual. I hope that they get what they deserve. I am sure that Mr. Needs will sleep better!!

Already pleading their case are you? You live in that house with them? And you "said" half of them? 2 of them right? Well, the last time i knew 2 of 6 isn't half. I will let the police figure out who is guilty, i am sure they will have enough evidence to support what happened and who was actually involved. I will say, if you weren't there or involved, you don't know the truth. You don't know the whole story yourself. Anyone can tell you they are innocent, the court will decide who stay's and who goes. So to say, if you get caught with your hand in the pot, you are guilty!
If you are going to run with the thugs that beat an old man, threatened to burn him up, stole his truck, live with them, are you guilty as well?
I am glad they traced these thugs (idiots) down. Let that be a lesson, you may run, you may hide, but they will find ya! Hope Mr. Needs recovers quickly from his injuries, and hope they look those thugs up, and then fry them later. They deserve more than the court will give them no doubt.

What led them to these people? This house? Whatever it was, I am relieved to know they have been found.

hey, Misty Meachem... just a quick question...
What makes you so sure that both are so innocent? they in my opinion obviously know something..this is DISGUSTING what happened to this man..what if this was your grandfather? i am sure you would want justice served...if i had my way, justice of one form or another WOULD be served, beit street justice or whatever it takes...btw,while you're sitting there name-dropping, someone may be taking up on those names..my only thought of consolation is that hopefully when it's all said and done the guilty will get what they deserve..one way or the other

MISTY MEACHEM,
Go a head and tell us the story, you seem to know who lives there, what do they every minute of the day, and who is and who isn't guilty. Perhaps it might be to the police officers best interest to interview you as well.:) Mr.Needs stuff that was taken from him was in that house, how do you think it got there? The tooth fairy perhaps? I am sure when they look all over that house they will find blood stains and god only know what else. IBET is correct in what they said,they will have all the evidence that they need to get who was involved. And guess what, when people get into trouble, they talk, talk, talk. They will be blaming each other no doubt. Mr.Needs, sorry for your situation and i truly hope you the best and a speedy recovery. And let it be known, no one can feel your pain, but by george we wish the best for you. As for the the people that did this and created this, they will be judged in the court of law. I hope they lock every single one of them up for the rest of their days. God Bless you Mr.Needs & your family!

"Innocent", Uncorrupted by evil, malice, or wrongdoing; sinless....
Let's see here...above you will find the definition of INNOCENT. Those 6 PUNK THUGS had Mr. Needs' property in their possesion inside a home where some, if not all of them live. So, in my opinion, 1 of 2 things has happened.
1. they themselves are the spineless punks who have no respect for themselves or for another human life. Where are your parents....your grandparents...your family....? Oh, so you don't have any of that? Then decide to step up and be REAL! Make the decision to be a survivor instead of a victim. Quit blaming your short comings and your sad life that has not meaning on those people who EARN their own money and possesions!! You are WORTHLESS!!
OR
2. The 6 members of that house were in some kind of drug ring, someone owed them money or they owed someone else money so they robbed a little old man, who has a family and is a respectable member of our community. If that is the case, they are ALL still GUILTY.....RECEIVING STOLEN PROPERTY DOES NOT MAKE THEM INNOCENT!!(see above definition if you are still CONFUSED!!
Not only will these worthless punks be judged in a court of law, but they too will stand before God one day and receive the ultimate punishment. They will BURN IN HELL!!

Maybe now these six animals and their partners in crime, who looked the other way when Mr. Need's possessions showed up in this house, will sleep a little less easy at night. Karma has a way of biting ya in the butt! People who sleep with dogs usually get fleas. As far as this community is concerned, all of these people are quilty. The people who turned a blind eye to this are as guilty as the ones who were in Mr. Needs home Sunday night!I think that they picked the wrong person to attack, he's a good man, contributes to the community and frankly people are outraged by this. Street justice is what they need. Take back our community!!

"Everybody was compliant," sure, they're always "compliant" when M-16's and SWAT are involved. Congrats to the CPD and their SWAT team. Thy named 'em right when they named them, "SWAT".

I find this particuler crime very cowardly and I wish I could get a few minutes alone with these punk a-- little bitc-es. These fagg-ts probably are part of the weber road girls and they aint not one of them shi-. Them and their stupid girlfriends talk alot of stuff but, when confronted they crumble to the ground and that is a fact. Misty Meachem if you only knew how stupid you sound defending these little punks you would want to go play on the freeway in heavy traffic. Also be careful because everybody knows the address of the house where the little animals live and just might be looking for them weber road girls to give them some of their own medicine.
