If the D.A. had tryed harder when Cliff tryed killing my daughter,by shooting her in the neck, and not just working so hard to give him a plea of only 5 years . Then this man would still be alive !!I wonder why thats not being said ,that he had tryed to kill someone before. Also mite ask about Cliff"s co.defd. in her case . I guess the DA feels he doesn't need to pay .. HE NEEDS TO LOOK WHAT HE HELPED HAPPEN !!
My heart goes out to the family.

Yes, REALLY. This story made the news didn't it? That means this rarely happens. You don't see black on black crime on the news do you? Whats that tell you? Don't get me wrong though, this kid deserves the death penalty. And if your going to call us names, it's "Cracker(s)". You racist !

Yea i feel the same way about the situation i feel that cliff should get the death penalty i remember when he shot that girl in the neck and your right if they would have done somthing to him the first time reid would still be here they had no reason for killing reid in front of his son which is my cousin for nothing im glad they caught him though instead of letting him get away now they need to finish him and the other guy off before he tries killing someone else

I grew up with cliff josh Patton went to school with Ariel and was close friends with them all. All the fake gangbanging got to their head. Cliff didn't intentionally shoot Ariel. It was one of those one in a million things where he shot and it just happen to hit her even though he should of never shot anyway. But he did his time for that. Josh only got off cause his mommy and daddy got money and cliffs family said your grown. Josh was a bitch about it and cliff took his 5 years and did them. Think about it though how many people get out of prison and actually change and don't go back? 5-10%. It's all unfortunate but this is life

Its none of your business. Instead of being nosey Thing of everyone it hurt. Not only Brandona family but the two charged has family's who also have been hurt because of if. Also a girlfriend who wasn't around 18 months when it happen. But some how it's her fault. Get the facts straight. Nobody should get murdered period!! But it affects every single family involved not just one.

Everybody wanna run their mouth Cliff wouldn't hurt a soul unless somebody hurt his family and the Ariel thing u didn't care ab her when u were letting her pop xanex and lorotabs. The reason Ariel got brought in it is bc she wouldn't leave cliff alone and snitched. She got people put in jail for her bull crap. He didn't mean to kill her he shot her house and she came outside. These days is what happens. You run ur mouth trying ab something you don't know. Now Brandon on the other hand was a great person but had faults as everyone else. If u were told by several people your sister got beat up by a guy u wouldn't do anything!? Once again he has no intentions of killing things got out of hand. But if I was told somebody beat on my sister daughter mother whatever it would take a sick individual to just sit back and let it happen. But and everybody wanna talk ab her on facebook your childish. Your mad that he didn't want u and loved Secilly but you were to busy cheating lying and stealing to give him time of day. Now that he's gone you act like you were so in love. Yall need to get over yourself!

God BLESS EVERYONE OF YALL!!!

Stop feeding her pain pills she wouldn't have been a drug addict and got caught with drugs but snitched blaming it on everybody else. We need more people around here that handle snitches. When your house is getting shot warning you don't mess with my family why would you walk outside in front of it.
You sound ridiculous

Nah he don't deserve the death penalty people need to know facts first. It takes a strong person to take blame for something u didn't do but tell the judge u did bc ur not a snitch! Props we know the truth that's all that matters!
Your about dumb

You grew up with them bs Ariel is the one who always wanted to hang out with any guy that would have her and thrown up gang signs like it's cute. Cliff wasn't in no gang now Josh he's a straight up lying snitch saying he was scared for his life yall all need a go somewhere unless ur n the family or friends and know what happened leave it alone bc honestly they are the only ones who knew the truth! If it scared Ariel so bad she wouldn't keep overdosing bc all she cares ab is getting high! Everybody wanna run their mouth and don't actually know the people in this story foreal or they would know Ariel grant and Josh are to scary so Cliff took blame for it and he wouldn't hurt a soul unless somebody hurt his family and the Ariel thing u didn't care ab her when u were letting her pop xanex and lorotabs. The reason Ariel got brought in it is bc she wouldn't leave cliff alone and snitched. We got people put in jail for her bull crap. He didn't mean to kill her he shot up her house and she came outside. Who the heck walks outside if u hear a gun. Previous perfect Ariel. You run ur mouth talking ab something you don't know nothing about for real.
Now Brandon on the other hand was a great person but had faults as everyone of us does.If u were told by several people your sister got beat up by a guy u wouldn't do anything!? Once again he had no intentions of killing. Things got out of hand. But if I was told somebody beat on my sister daughter mother whatever it would take a sick individual to just sit back and let it happen. But everybody wants to talk ab him on Facebook your childish as it comes hiding bring a screen knowing you would try to kiss his but i when he goes home. Your mad that he didn't want Arial. Yall need to get over yourself!

Its none of your business. Instead of being nosey Thing of everyone it hurt. Not only Brandons family but the two people charged has family's who innocent and don't deserve to be treated like trash because others mistakes. Also have you been hurt because of if? Also a girlfriend who wasn't around 18 months when it happen. But some how it's her fault. Get the facts straight. Nobody should get murdered period!! But it affects every single family involved not just one.

I understand where your coming from but everybody things ms. Innocent got shot for no reason cliff didn't even shoot her!!! That's what I was trying to say but I don't know how to work this thing yet. The guy who got away completely free should have don't the time but cliff didn't run his mouth. I would prefer their be more people like that out here. Not the shooting but taking up for each other helping one another out

Idk how I hurt anybody I apologize if I did but I was tlkn to Ariels gma Who wants a pity party but she was the one who let her get n all kinda crazy stuff. Shes been getting high since 9 but since all she cares ab is money she is blaming that day on her drug habit. That'd what I think is ridiculous and everybody is intitiled to their own opinion I apologize if u think I was being rude to u. Like I said I just figured this out and Brandon was very close to me that's why I don't care ab the Ariel thing right now they had their time to grieve and shes still alive Brandons not so I don't understand why somebody throws their two cents n when they never cared ab Ariell till this happen now she wants money off of it.
