That was the best laugh of today...thank you!
Run-on sentence, after run-on sentence. Horrible spelling. Sentences that don't make sense.
You could do better than "whan" Jon does?
LMFAO!!!
That's a good one!

Forgive me if I couldn't understand your comments; I generally have trouble comprehending when proper grammar, spelling, punctuation and capitalization are ignored. AC-T has enough trouble without your "help."

Maybe you should re-read the article; nowhere in the article does it mention which gun belonged to Trooper Blanton, nor does it state which gun was used to take his life. As a matter of fact, it comes to the same conclusion as you did (but far mor logically and clearly than you do) that the Sig was most likely the Trooper's weapon.

Unless you were there, you have no facts about which gun was used when. You've made up a little scenario in your fantasy world and you're ignoring the facts that don't support it. I hope you're not on the jury; your mindless ramblings could cause "reasonable doubt."

oh I can't spell nor make a sentence however I can copy and paste just like good old Jon here. And all im saying is the gun that killed him if you have any sence and I do not the smallest of the three would be the one Wong had on him at the time. Does that not make sence to you I mean no I can't read and write not make a sentence. But if I had a gun in my pocket it would be a small one. You do not need to make fun of me. Make fun of Jon. He is the one that copied and paste about 90% of the whole thing. If you read it again about the guns follow the links on here that I posted. It is word for word from the links that is plagiarism. So no need to put me down and make fun of me. Jon makes a hell of alot more than I do. Sure he is ALOT smarter than I and can make a sentence and can spell. I can not do any of them but I can copy and paste just like Jon. Now I am going to cry im hurt from this. All I did was try to help some people that do not know much about guns. And to show that Jon is a theif. Im sorry I can't spell and make a sentence.

Perhaps you should've read Wikipedia's own copyright section. It states: "Facts cannot be copyrighted, and limited use of copyrighted material can be done without requiring permission from the rights holders for such things as scholarship and review."

Its nice to know that there are some people out there who care about us.I like to know that i can do my job and not be hated for doing it.

I feel very heartbroken over our loss but knowing some people care makes me feel a little better. So to the good people that are still out there, Thank you for letting us do our job.

Brother there are still plenty of us that support you and always will. Thank you for your service to this state, and I'm very sorry for your loss.

"Thank you for letting us do our job."

I have the utmost respect for you and other law enforcement. Unless one is close to someone in that type of work, one doesn't really realize what you do and what your families go through everytime you walk out the door. God bless you.

They were likely Christian Cowards who could not muster the courage and marksmanship to take another man's life.

There should be no suspect here, there should just be a dead gunmen who will forever be presumed guilty and never be able to testify.

They are more likely to be men (and women) who are sworn to enforce and uphold the law. Once the POS decided to surrender, the LEOs did exactly that.

Let's keep in mind all of our SBI agents who are still gathering evidence against this killer. I pray for each of them to collect all of the evidence correctly. We do not need a mistrial for this killer.

That felon ain't old enough to have bought any handguns legally. Looks like he's been a felon all his adult life anyway. What do you mean he couldn't afford them? Who was paying for his gas? He must have been making big money somehow.

Is there any way that the guns that this low life had be traced and if they were purchased illegally can that person also be held responsible? Just wondering? Also does the same law apply in Fl. as in NC? After being a convicted felon you may NOT own a firearm? Again just wondering.

Felons cannot own a handgun in any state.

There is no to trace illegally purchased guns because those same people purchasing/stealing them aren't registering them. They are just passed through on the black market.

The NCSHP are much smarter than you. Have some
respect for the troopers and other LEOs that have to cope with the loss and Shawn's family.

Wong's record speaks for itself. And what he did
that night is plenty to send him to death row.

Let's hope that he is put to death faster than Timothy McVeigh. Lethal injection would be too easy. A public hanging off an overpass on I-40 would suffice.
