Way to stand up for the people in uniform judge! Maybe you would have handed down a more severe sentence if Cullen had shot at you. You are worthless.

He's got to be related to the judge or family friends, something I would hope would have contributed to such a ridiculous sentence.

Some of like our cats, more than we like some people. The man wanted his cat, they should understand that.

Hmm. I would think that the remaineder of his beer would have been a better persuader.

Wow - I don't think I have ever read a more rational argument in support of trying to kill a fire fighter.

He was trying to be funny by playing on the work feline. Now who's stupid?

Why do people have to come on these things just to attack others?

Being a firefighter I can assure you I would feel very bad if I were rescuing an animal and could not respond to rescue a human. I understand some people would put the well being of thier pets above humans so I can't help but wonder why they would not pay someone in that business to save their critter.

Kingman is a very small town...everyone knows everyone. I'm sure the sentence fits the crime for this Mayberry like town.

Betty. you never cease to amaze me with your idiotic stupid comments. Maybe you should read...
you didn't get the "feline" reference to the cat? And you say too bad he missed?
You are one sorry piece of work. I was going to add lady to the end of that.. but you are definitely no resembelance to a lady what so ever.
You stick up for child molesters and stupid people shooting at firemen. You can't be real..

There is no excuse for shooting at people.

However, I can understand the frustration the shooter had, most firefighters are a constant drain on the taxpayers. What I think is funny, is that after 9/11, people treat firefighters as GODS! Remember people, there were police and civilian rescuers too!

In the tiny mountain town I grew up in named Leadville, all the firefighters drive around the biggest fire truck they can find, like its a personal taxi. They go to the Safeway store, and use it to go to lunch in! Why waste the diesel and cause the wear and tear? Don't firefighters have smaller support vehicles? Or is it MACHO to drive the BIG TRUCK? Then, as a tax payer, when you ask them to do something simple, they wont help you. LAZY PEOPLE. Sad thing is that they make alot more than the local police!

sorry you have such a bad attitude. Did you get turned down when you applied to test for the fire dept.? They drive around in the trucks, because they need to be available 24/7 in case of a call. I have seen before,when they are in the store,(because they do need to have groceries when they are 24 hours on at a time, or did you not want them to eat? and are you going to grocery shop for them?)
they drop whatever they are doing and run out if they get a call. This is why they drive in the truck.
You are ignorant and rude. Firefighters are the first on scene to accidents, and other calls, many many times. Firefighters saved my sister's life when she had a siezure, because they were the first on scene. When you are in an accident, please turn the firefighters away when they respond first to help you, because they don't need to waste their time on someone who has your attitude.

It's actually a pretty funny story given no one was injured. The last comment the shooter made is that he needed to look at his alcohol consumption.

“What did you say?”
