Not saying those responsible are in the right but James Sims is not the most ethical businessman in Humboldt. The expression "What goes around comes around" comes to mind. I do hope Mr. Sims recovers though.

you gotta reap whats you sow. If you keeps doing folks wrong, then sooner or later somebody gonna get ya butt. Down on da corner we call it karma. One of these days folks will start to realize that they have to treat others the way they want to be treated. Screwing over folks for a dollar, lying to folks, and being just downright mean will catch up wid dat azz sooner or later. Looks like it caught him.

What do YOU know that's so damn special? You're only done wrong if you allow yourself. Buy here, pay here car lots are for people with fkd credit. Pay your gd bills and go to a real finance place. Don't get mad cuz ur black ass is getting what u deserve.
No dollar amount should result in such a brutal murder as it did with this man. Y'all wanna talk about karma. It's coming alright. Maybe all you crackheads and gutter hos will get whats coming to u ? Get a fkn job. That'd be a start.

First of all, he ain't dead. He's not in real good shape but he'll survive...and talk?
Secondly, most good folks realize that few things are about blacks and whites, just because you are black or white (or Mexican, etc). Life is about who you are individually. Gibson County jail has as many or more whites as it does blacks. If you don't pay your bills, you get bad credit..black or white. If you're a scammer you'll get yours...black or white. If you conduct yourself in a poor manner, take advantage of your friends, sell dope, make dope, get busted...it isn't because you are black or white it's because of your individual choices and actions.

He didn't get his because he is black or white, nor young or old. It is about doing folks right and doing folks wrong. I agree that a buy here pay here car lot is a rip off scheme for folks with fked up credit. Hell, just look at Rentacenter or AArons or those places. At least they have decent (cheaply made) merchandise. Just because some folks have had problems don't give you the right to rip their heads off and then crap in the stump. Sooner or later it comes back to bite ya. I would be willing to bet it is just someone who knew what he did and wanted some quick money. They probably figured he was an old man and not give too much of a fight. Ain't none of it worth losing your life over, period.

I am as white as anyone in Humboldt. My credit is just fine. My dealings with Sims were when I worked for an auto parts store. He tried to get away without paying for parts. I have bought cars from him but it was before he was in the "Tote the Note" business. I said, whoever did it was in the wrong. I have known James Sims for most of my life. He is an arrogant old scammer. That being said, I still hope they catch the thugs responsible for jacking him up.

i totally agree, he has to make a living and has owned car lots that had brand new cars along witht the option for people with bad credit to also buy cars in no way should anybody commit such a brutal crime to get me money, he was 80 yrs old why not just take his money and leave? shooting him is not necessary. god have mercy on the person if ever they try to rob me, they will have holes riddled all through them and wont have a chance to go to the hospital.

arrogance? i guess that may be in the eye of the beholder i personally know ppl who didnt like him but that is part of his character. how boring the world would be if god made us exact replicas of one another

yes but statistically speaking, come on now, who commits the more serious crimes. crimes with violence and the intent to kill? they intended to kill the man which is wrong whether he is arrogant or not, but maybe that hardness in him is the reason he is surviving

I'm hearing that a woman came to the door, and when he opened it, two men rushed in and jumped him. Just coffee shop talk, you know, but I fully believe those responsible will be brought to justice. I'm hearing too, that it wasn't the first time he had been robbed and he was reasonably cautious. Heard too that he was shot twice, tied up, then shot three more times for good measure but he still managed to get loose and try to react. Who knows what the truth is, but if I was the perps I'd be concerned cause the TBI don't play. He's still kickin so he is indeed a tough ole' nut.

I agree. He may be a worthless old fart, but he does not deserve to be shot over a few bucks. Sooner or later the folks who did this will be caught. They will plead insanity, or make the case of a screwed up childhood or some other bs story and walk away with a couple of years. It is time we started making the punishment fit the crime. Steal and lose a hand, rape and lose your balls, kill and be killed. If enough folks would start shooting back, I guarentee the crime rates will drop in and hurry, along with the excess population problem.

Just to clear things up. yes he may have been hard. He was hard working. People used to have to work hard for what they get. He has done that. And yes , he was tied up and shot. He did get away and survive. I guarentee that whomever done this will pay dearly. Just like what was said earlier.Karma

I have dealt with MR Sims, he is a GREAT GUY! He'll work with anyone, this sounds like some loser fools out there (there are many too) that have no respect for anything or anyone! I hate to say it, but I do wish they might be mistaken, and "look" to be pulling a weapon... and "BOOM! BYE BYE WASTE OF LIFE!
