Who gives a shit about Tony Diaz? No one should! I guess its true what they say--What comes around goes around!!! Maybe he should have thought twice before taking a precious, wonderful life and then he wouldn't even be in prison to begin with. Maybe if he finds the lord, he will be able to understand that this is his time to repent to God--take responsiblity more graciously... He's still going to hell, though!

You piece of shit!! Stop sticking up for this murderer.... He should be abused in prison. Maybe then he will know what it feels like to be a victim.

let me see if I have it right....He camped out in a bush, brought soda and snacks and filled his car with maps to "live on the run" after his killing of an innocent, wonderful person. OH YES, let's make sure he can have phone calls and a decorated cell!

WOW! MAYBE YOU NEED TO HAVE BEEN IN THE COURT ROOM AND HEARD THE DETAILS. Or better yet seen the area he camped out in.(obviously this was well planned)OR THE FACES OF HER VERY YOUNG NEPHEWS WHO WITNESSED THIS "MISTAKE"! They even years later cannot forget the site of their aunt laying in the ground!

Prison is a place where they send very bad people. People that mame, steal and murder other people. Convicted murderers and other law breaking individuals would fare far better if they could accept the consequence of their own decisions and stop blaming the world for what remains wrong in their lives. If they could only understand the devastation they have caused not only to their victims but those that were left to live with the horror that for some will never go away. The prison guards and wardens are doing their jobs they have not committed unthinkable crimes against any single person, they go home at the end of the day. I know the families of these prisoners have also lost something they too love, but please never forget the innocence of their victims and the families that are left behing to live with the senseless horror. God Bless all of you.

Pay back is a b*tch... This should be a lesson to anyone how can't take a break up... There are so many ways to get back at a ex, that don't involve violence... It sucks to be in prison for the rest of your life; but he should have thought of that before he pulled the trigger; it sucks even more not to have a loved one around... And he shot the wrong person, what a dope!!!!

tony, you deserve everything you get in prison. you knew what you were doing. i don't beleive you when you say you were so depressed . why did'int you kill yourself? instead you killed a wonderful girl who had so much to give.i don't think god will ever forgive you. you took one of his angels with your own hand. dawn did'int die right away just to let you know she suffered. so, you say they are treating you horrible (i can only hope
i hope everyday someone in that prison reminds you what you have done to dawn and her family and i am say that they should abuse you in anyway shape or form because dawn might be dead but i'm not .anbd everyday everyone in this family is mentally abused. you will die in prison , you will live forever in hell with your brother the devil. live long.

kristen is right I hope you suffer for what you have done. You have destroyed many lives and now you are crying about your own. It appears crying was definately part of who you are and Mom continues to enable you. To bad, maybe if you were made responsible instead blaming everyone else (I am sure you have done this for your whole life). It amazes me how you can go into detail about a women you only knew briefly but you blame her for your miserable life. Do yourself a favor and sit back and take a good look at yourself. You dirty piece of crap!

Anybody have a number to call on behalf of Dawn Brown? Didn't think so; tell Diaz and his family to just shut up and live with he planned and did.

As for Kristen and her message. Mr.'get a life' has probably never been close to the life altering sudden loss of a close relative by an out of control felon so he needs to take a step back.

And why exactly are we suppose to care when criminals get treated badly in prison? They made their bed, and now they must lay in it. As far as I'm concerned I'd say having three hots, and a cot is waaaay too much for them. If you kill somebody you should pay with your life IMO.If the sissies can't take it they should off themselves. And to whoever said.... "get over it it has been 20 years" are a complete joke. The victim's families hurt the rest of their lives. You should probably be locked up too if for nothing other than your utter stupidity.

Kristen is my daughter and I am Dawn's sister. What type of person are you? Hopefully you will never know the pain this man has caused and as far as "20 years" feels like yesterday!
