He was a 39 year old steroid addict. Do you remember him prior to the injections...he was a good kid. The roid rage got him in to multiple situations in the past. Do not try to turn him into a martyr.

So you're saying he deserved it "knew him well"? Murder is murder and you're a damn tool.

MURDER? Do you have any idea of the definition of the word murder? "The unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another". Chose your words wisely. I'm not saying he deserved it, but that he shouldn't have been in that situation. And you're a damn idiot. Do you feel that people shouldn't pay for their decisions and actions...you voted for Obama, didn't you?

People whether justice is served or not will be in a lot of trouble of this I'm sure knowing Jimmy's buddys. What a senseless act. I hope the little pansies who did this get what they have coming. And I'm probably sure they will. Hence, no name releases...I'm guessing tread extremely carefully you fools. RIP Jim, love ya buddy, thank you for the good times and may the lord watch over your family. God bless

It's sad now a days people can't go out have a drink and enjoy others. Everyone wants to fight and act like their a bad boy, or a tuff girl. Guess big Jimmy meant someone little more than he could handle. Everyone has a choice to turn the cheek and walk away. Nobody wins in this action. I hope maybe the Lcb, or law enforcment do something about the Wick city saloon. Nothing but drug addicts and trouble that frequent that establishment. Maybe people will wake up just because you think your a bad boy. Maybe you should waelk away and nobody would be feeling any pain or hurt, and we wouldn't be posting comments period. Think people before you act its that simple.

. I defentaliy agree. But I also would hold wick Shitty responsable as well. From what the news reports are saying it happened right across from the bar. There so called security could have easily went out and stopped it or got things out of control. Where was the police ? They know at that time of night how many people emerge from there. And if this fight was taking place it amazes me the bar or no one called the police of Mayberry. But then again the saloon and police are in good standing since a Mantinie and bauer run the show. Who ?'S them. They kpd must be paid. Cause I know for a fact their in under agers that frequent that establishment. And also have seen people so drunk they couldn't even stand up. So much for shutting them off right. It's sad that a man or women has to loose a life because of someone wants to be a hard ass. You and I know there was alot of rift raft watching a fight & know body knows nothing plz. Remember God will judge these people someday and hope he has merecy on your soul for your sake. Nobody really knows the true story of what led up too this. But Jimmy wasn't any saint either and did like to run his mouth. But he didn't deserve to be brutley beatin either.

O.K. Family, you speak of "morals and rescect", are you willing to make public your family issues, his excessive drinking, and steriod use?
I did not think so...before you speak of "morals and respect" you need to be sure you house is clean!!!

seems odd that "I knew him well" seems to know all about someone they live 500 miles away from. I knew Jimmy many years ago and have ran into him once in a while over the years. Jimmy was a nice kid many years ago, and I never had any reason to think otherwise thru the years. Maybe Jimmy did do Steroids, maybe Jimmy did drink. To say that for those reasons he got what was coming to him is both ignorant and thoughtless. Instead of getting on your high horse and proclaiming all the things that were wrong with Jimmy maybe you and everyone else who thinks like you(hopefully there aren't many) should remember Jimmy for what he was. A son, a brother & a friend to many. I may not have been close to Jimmy but it makes me sad to know that I will never see him again. My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.

How can anybody with the handle "I knew him well" talk such ridiculous comments about Jimmy's "excessive drinking" when anybody that honestly knew him in his later years knows this not to be the case.

Jimmy was a wonderful person. Absolutely give you the shirt off his back. I actually knew him well and he had great sympathy and compassion for people.
