The Place should be closed down, there are people with young children that go out there that could be placed in danger.

This place is 5 mins down the road from my house and I agree with Ann. This place should be shut down for good. This place is a disaster waiting to happen......

I agree with Ann and Curt. There is alot of drinking and fighting that goes on out there and then they just speed up and down the residential neighborhood streets in their trucks with no consideration for anybody.
The owners of the property should have some type of responsibility for this also. They have have been informed by nothing has been done. Why?

What is a shame is that everybody thinks that the police can protect everyone at all times. People you have to police each other and let someone know when they are doing something wrong. If someone else in the pit that night had a fire arm they could have used it to deter the kid with the shotgun and we probably would not have this mess right now. People go get your concealed weapons license it could save yours and someone elses life. The police will never get there on time.

I disagree with everyone on here first just cause an accident happened does not mean this place should be shut down ppl get shot at the mall on purpose should they shut the mall down??? an flex what r u sayin they shoulda shot the other boy??? he did not do this on purpose he has night mares about it an regrets bein able to breathe with the thoughts in his head of what happened that is punishment enough an if it wasnt meant to happen god would have stopped it he was ready for justin to coem home.

First of all the mere fact that someone got shot regardless of it being an accident or not is a horrible thing and we all need to recognize that. Second of all why should it be shut down? Because it provides some type of closure for the grieving parents/family members and all those worried about the dangers??? Mudding by definition is extremely dangerous. The fact that parents still let their children go is beyond me to begin with but whos responsibilty is that?? Its not the law or estabilishments its the parents. Also lets not bring god, or illusion thereof, be brought into this. I bet if the kid didnt have a shotgun nobody wouldve gotten hurt. According to the argument the kid wouldve died anyways.

Im all about having safe fun. What the residents/owners of the mudhole decide to do is up to them and if you dont like it grow the fuck up and tell your kids no. Its that easy.

I honestly think this place shouldn't be closed down. I have been going there for a while now and these kind of things rarely happen. There is great security and the staff tries to make sure the place stays safe. Just because someone makes a bad choice doesn't mean other people should have to suffer for it.
