Obviously if his family knew he was not mentally sound, they should have removed the guns from his residence. It should have never come to this. That is your responsibility as a family member. You know better than a board of mental health professionals if your family member is incapable of making sound decisions. Though I support the 2nd amendment, I would not think twice about removing guns from a family members home if I felt they were unable to make sound decisions in using one.

It's a damn shame when people defend a murderer. I'm sure these two innocent men had family too!! When your wrong you are wrong no damn matter if you was good your whole life you do something this horrible it's still no good and you should be punished harshly regardless what his mental state was.

Look them two men did nothing wrong at all. But go loom at land that belonged to them . Mr garrick hopkins was a great man and would do anythig for anyone had kids and grandkids that he loved very much and now they have to deal with all this because some dumb man shot and killed him. And their uncle this is very sad and whats also sad is u ppl want to talk shit about ppl and u dont know anything shit if u watch the news it tells u that they did nothing wrong. My prayers are with the hopkins family.

I know it i had a gun pulled on me for no reason other than they was crazy. If the people defending this piece of crap murder had a gun pulled on them they would not be defending this cold blooded killer. Throw the book at this murder

These 2 men were good men. Hard workers all their lives. Fathers, sons, grandfathers, brothers, uncles and very good friends to many. Good citizens and would help anyone. Future dreams for them and their families were "snatched" away from them in a few moments! No excuses- if he even thought they shouldn't be there,he had a phone. Those same moments he used to shoot them - he could have called the police to come and find out the truth. THEY OWNED the property and the shed. The truth.

I'm a little confused as to how he thought it was his shed or even thought it was someone else's besides these two fellows.

He shot em in cold blood for the hell of it apparently after they released his statement. Its truly sad how deranged people can be... He knew damn well it wasnt his shed or property he is just using that as his defense...

I was going to say if the victims were black it would not have been a big deal. White Justice will prevail.
