I don't care.... I don't think it should have been something to hide being in a relationship.... Oh well.. I found out and I'm good. Was it really self defense? If he is such a fighter I think things should have been handled a little different. He knows how to protect himself.

i grew up with doc (nickname) when he was a sailor. he was a good dude. he did have a tendency to never back down to people. he used to box...so he was a fighter. i dont endorse murder, but he was obviously provoked in some way. he is not the type to go shooting for now reason. i always knew he would bump into someone one day and they would not back down to him and the results would be bad. shit i was one of his boys and dude used to fight me...lol
but i thought he had outgrown that stage. but obviously he still carrying his gun on him at 33yrs old...i had a feeling that would get him in trouble. i came here because i aint heard from him in a while and his fb was taken down.

hickman was a small guy, so you cant win all the fights. he did like to stay strapped so to speak, because he knew he had people he had pissed off...i always thought the same. that someone would try to come at him because he did or said something foul to them. i never thought he would actually pull a trigger

I have worked with Hickman in the past in Germany he has a major ego issue and is a hothead. He entered into a love triangle fight where he physically hurt an injured an Air Force enlisted man involving his female partner and Hickman was demoted and sent back to North Carolina where a similar situation followed. Looks like history repeats itself.

Then they moved him to Kansas. His wife split with the kids due to his whoring around and his temper. Looks like history repeats itself.

I was his roommate at NTC, I never saw him start a fight. If he said he was defending himself, then that's what he was doing.
I was also his roomate at NTC, great dude, stand upguy. If he says self-defence, then i believe him
