Its funny how no one is saying anything about the other 4 people there the night of the fire. Maybe an article should be written about the person who actualy started the fire perhaps.

The name of the slim that started the fire.....Johnny Ray Waller of Watauga. He stole a car and when the police discovered him he ran an hid in a ditch under a bridge, like the low life he is. He is now in jail awaiting trail where I hope he spends the rest of his Pathetic life.

Yes actually I did figure out how to finally log on correctly. Had to change some things around and get the new name. I am glad you noticed. I am still "just me" had to leave off the watauga, as I moved. Is that a problem for you? I am still going to keep up on whats going on. I see you show Hurst so you did a little moving also. What happened? Tim get to close?

Johnny Ray Waller is a useless piece of human flesh that is only wasting valuable air from people who actually deserve to live. He has done nothing but be a threat to society and I hope they put him under the prison this time! That's what he deserves for all the harm he has caused numerous people and their families...including mine. Death would be too good for him...
If you are writing in support Johnny Waller then it is just a matter of time before something horrible happens to you also...stop getting high and idolizing a loser!!!!!

ISN'T IT STRANGE....THEY HAVE DONE DNA (DIDN'T MATCH J.B), IN FACT, LIKE AMANDA SAID, WHY AREN'T YOU CLUELESS MAGGITS CONCERNED ABOUT THE 4 PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY DID START THAT FIRE??? HAVE YOU SEEN THE EVIDENCE??? DIDN'T THINK SO, OR YOU WOULD ALSO BE AWARE OF THE FACT THEY HAVE HIS CELL PHONE RECORDS AND HE WASN'T ANYWHERE CLOSE TO THOSE APTS AT THE TIME THE FIRE WAS STARTED OR AFTER!! THEY HAD JUST GONE ON THE WORD OF THE DOPE FIEND WHO LIVED IN THE APT... SO, UNTIL YOU HAVE THE FACTS, SHUT YOUR F'ING MOUTHS, AND TRY TALKIN' YOUR SHIT ABOUT SOMEONE WHO IS ACTUALLY OUT HERE TO DEFEND HIMSELF...BCUZ, I KNOW IF HE WAS OUT HERE, NONE OF YOU "USELESS PIECES OF HUMAN FLESH", WOULD BE SAYING A-N-Y OF THIS TO HIS FACE!!!

Firstly, I dont believe Johnny did this. Its really not in his personality. Being a pyro would not be a way that he would solve any issues. I know his whole family. They have always been very helpful to me. I know there is more to the story... I just wish they will come out with who really did it. However, Johnny did not do it. Its really a damned if you do damned if you dont situation.
To the family who lost their son. I am honestly sorry. It is a tragic thing. But you are blaming the wrong person.
PS: Im not getting high, nor am I a follower. I just know its not in his behavior!!!

Now after all the facts was said in court and the useless bottom feeder had his chance at defending his side. We all know with out a doubt Johnny Waller is a murderess low life scum bag. When the two bet piece of punk sucking s**t gets to the big house he will play the zipper flute like a circus seal, because he is not even a punk just a punk sucking trash heap. may his soul and who ever raised him souls rot in hell.

First of all, I would like to give my condolences to the family of the young man whose life was lost in this horrible incident. Secondly, I would like to point out that while under the influence of narcotics a person can and will do things that are not normal behavior even for them. I understand that the friends and family of this johnny person wants to defend him as any good family or friend menber would do, however there is no reason to verbally attack or harass the family of the victim. Lets try to be a little more mature about this.

BE MATURE ABOUT THIS??? US VERBALLY ATTACKING THEM?? PERHAPS YOU DIDN'T READ FROM THE BEGINNING!! WHATEVER THE FATHER OF THE VICTIM HAD TO SAY ABOUT J.B.(JOHNNY) AFTER THE TRIAL...TOTAL F'ING BULLSHIT!! YOU WERE THERE...YOU HEARD THE FACTS...YOU HEARD WHO IS RESPONSIBLE AND INSTEAD OF MAKING SURE THE 3 GUYS (DO I NEED TO REPOST THEIR FULL NAMES ON HERE TO REMIND YOUR STUPID ASS???) INSTEAD OF MAKING SURE THEY PAY FOR WHAT "THEY", NOT J.B., DID...YOU'RE SO BUSY LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO BLAME....YOU CAN'T ADMIT TO YOURSELF THAT YOU'VE SETTLED FOR J.B., BCUZ HIS WAS THE FIRST NAME YOU HEARD AND YOU MADE YOUR MIND UP THEN AND THERE, THAT HE WAS THE ONE RESPONSIBLE. YOU ARE WRONG!! STOP SAYING THE EVIDENCE PROVED THAT J.B. IS A MURDERER, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH...YADA, YADA....WHATEVER YOU WANT TO MAKE PEOPLE "BELIEVE" YOU HEARD IN THE COURTROOM...YOUR ARE A LYING SACK OF SH** AND, HERE'S AN IDEA....WHY DON'T YOU STOP RUNNING YOUR MOUTH, AND MAYBE NOW YOU CAN USE YOUR CHILDISH LINES & LIES ON THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ACTUALLY TO BLAME, FOR YOUR SON'S DEATH!!?? WHILE YOU SIT THERE TYPING ALL THESE RIDICULOUS "HALF TRUTHS", WHILE THE 3 GUYS...(THE ONES YOU HEARD IN COURT!! AND, HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN THAT ONE OF THEM GOT ON THE STAND, TESTIFYING TO THE FACT THAT HE WAS ONE OF THEM...GAVE YOU THE OTHER TWO PEOPLE'S NAMES....TOLD YOU THAT J.B.(JOHNNY WALLER) DID NOT GO WITH THEM, WAS NO WHERE AROUND AND KNEW NOTHING ABOUT A FIRE, AT ALL...) ANYWAY, WHILE YOU SIT THERE THINKIN' IT'S SO GREAT HOW THEY "GOT THE BIG BAD MURDERER"....WHY DON'T YOU PULL YOUR HEAD OUTTA YOUR A** AND REALIZE (OR ADMIT TO YOURSELF) THAT THE 3 GUYS WHO KILLED YOUR SON, HAVE GOTTEN AWAY WITH MURDER!!! HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL, TO KNOW THAT THE REAL ARSONISTS/MURDERERS HAVEN'T STILL NOT PAID FOR WHAT THEY DID??!! BUT, INSTEAD, YOU ARE FOCUSING SO HARD ON JUST THE FACT THAT "SOMEONE" IS FINALLY PAYING FOR A MURDER HE DID NOT COMMIT ~ AND YOU KNOW THIS!! JUST "ANYONE" TO PLACE THE BLAME ON, HUH?? APPARANTLEY SO!! I'D HATE TO KNOW THAT I HAD BLAMED THE WRONG PERSON, AND THE PEOPLE I "SHOULD BE" SEEKING JUSTICE ON ARE THINKIN' HOW FUNNY IT IS THAT THEY AREN'T PAYING FOR ENDING YOUR SON'S LIFE!

So I am assuming you must be a dope-fiend too Christi, since you apparently know all the parties involved. Remember,"Birds of a feather flock together" Lets hope they don't set your home on fire next, make sure you don't make the same mistake of not paying for your drugs! It is so unfortunate that you feel it necessary to brutally verbally attack this poor victims family. Is it a common practice for you to verbally "kick" someone while they are down? Dont you think they are going through enough without your harsh words? How would you like it if someone was verbally attacking an opinion you have while using a profuse amount of profanity. I am sure we will all know how much you dont like it by your next post. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Like my opinion of you.
It is also my opinion that all parties involved are in some way "guilty" because if any of them had made even one decision differently this tragedy might not have happened. Even if the guy who got the drugs without first paying could have possibly prevented this by not using drugs in the first place, and his girlfriend didn't have to let an addict stay with her to avoid his drug dealer. All parties involved put other people at risk and all should be held accountable (in my opinion.) Unfortunately only one was prosecuted. May it be a lesson to everyone to make better decisions not only for their own lives but also the people they befriend, because like it or not, we are who we hang with.

To My Son's Father,

I was on the jury. Definately one of the hardest things I've ever done. All of us were so very sorry for your loss. But, we also felt bad for Johnny's family. However, when a young man decides to make crime his choice of a career, he has to be willing to pay the price of that path. Your son was trying to better himself and did not deserve to loose his life because of the selfish, stupid and evil actions of another. I hope that our decision was of some help to your family. I know you will still have more hurdles to get over, but I do wish you peace at sometime in the future.
