This is the worst thing I have heard of since I moved here in 1999. Pulling a gun in a neighborhood for being asked to calm down at 2am. This kind of person shouldn't see the light of day. My heart goes out to Mr. Martinez his wife, kids, family and friends. I just saw him two days before and he had his boys with him at his fathers house. That is what I am remembering.

I know that violence happends every where, but you just dont expect soemthing like this to happen in Burleson, It is just the craziest and most mind blowing thing, I am just not used to hearing about things like this in Burleson, not for something so ignorant, asking a niebohor to be quiet , I dont think it would have been any different know matter who would have asked him to quiet down, I really hope he stays locked up because this world is hard enough we dont need people like him in it. I am so sorry for the martinez family and every one who knew him, and most of all I am so sorry for his children, because they lost there father and cant get that back, Poor kids didnt get much time with him, my heart is so broken for them, and I will pray for every one

Since when do we take matter in our own hands by going to confront load noises at 2:00am instead of calling the police and let them handle the situation. People really need to get the whole story before opening their mouths...I feel so sorry for all the kids involved not just the Martinez kids. We have police officers to handle situations like this for a reason !!!

On many occasions, I have confronted people myself for things late at night or early in the morning. We used to be able to take matters into our own hands, with-out being killed for it! Since when do we HAVE to call the police for ALL matters? Just goes to show you how crazy this world has become. Hire more police officers, so people like AGGREVATED can call them!

ITS SAD BUT TRUE, WE NEED TO LET THE POLICE DO THEIR JOBS. THERE IS A REASON WHY THEY HAVE BULLET PROOF VESTS AND GUNS, BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT THE WORLD, INCLUDING BURLESON, IS COMING TOO! PEOPLE LET LAW ENFORCEMENT DO THEIR JOBS AND QUIT TRYING TOO! IM SADDENED FOR CHRIS AND HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS!
