dont u think hes playing the self defense card a little too much? and what about carter pulling a shotgun on him? everybody seems to be forgetting about that and can u tell me why carter ran when the police showed up..why if he thought he was in the right, would he run? and how do u kno that he was actually attacked by a frog gig?
To answer your questions: I do think its odd or carter is most unlucky man in the world to be involved in 2horriffic incidents in 1lifetime. Follow up reports said judge reduced fleeing & resisting because he didn't run or pose danger to police -he was sitting in barn. Regarding frog gigg-the reports from court described as spear like pole & 2 previos posts (echo & just saying) stated they were in court & victim was the aggressor & spear like pole was a frog gigg. I haven't heard many details about the shotgun-but it doesn't make sense to me-if carter had a shot gun & intended to kill victim-why didn't he pull trigger? wouldn't that be easier then a hatchet? I am confused about that one..

furthermore, i wonder what u would be saying if this was someone u cared about? imagine if this was your sone, husband or father..would u still be saying the same thing?
Absolutely! If my son husband or father went after someone with a spear-I certianly would expect the other man to defend himself.. Are u posting just to play devils advocate or are you delusional-that any man would stand there and get frog gigged-Be realistic. This was horrible no-win situation. I apologize if the reality of the situation offends anyone -it doesnt mean I'm any less sympathetic to the mans brutal death or the tremendous loss his family has endure.

Daniel Carter had just passed his 15th birthday. Daniel had gone to bed when around midnight a man suddenly burst into his bedroom waving a steel maglite - flashlight yanks Daniel from bed by the hair of his head. Uncle Jack Carter was a kung - fu black belt bodybuilder. After an autopsy it was found uncle Jack was on Valium, Steroids, and had a blood alcohol level that was between .13 and .18 significantly higher than the legal limit in Florida. Jack Carter had been called to the home of Cindy Carter Jacks sister to have a man to man talk with her son Daniel. Daniel had been into a box of Jacks surfing magazines kept in the home after being told not to. When called Jack told Cindy to leave the back door unlocked and go to bed. Daniel was then beat with the steel flashlight as he tried to call 911 the phone was pulled from the wall. The 6'1 Jack threaten to sexually mutilate Daniel with a rope in hand, knife in sock, bullets in pocket, and gun in truck parked out of sight behind the house. Do children have the right to protect themselves in their own home in this case it is so. Daniel Carters family stood behind him. If he was down on his luck why did he come to Paris Kentucky to this camper to live? When stealing happens dont most call the police, why not call the police? What would Daniel have taken to keep in this camper on the property when not being in Kentucky very long? Did Daniel need help or have a way to get it when being confronted more than once over the same point? What could have been worth all of this? It is really sad this all came to play with all parties from now on and always.

First of all - I wouldn't put myself in that position. 2nd of all I'd never risk my family and turn my property into a camper park for people I just met. 3rd of all i wouldn't go after someone with a frog gigg!!! I'm not here to argue with simple minded wus who would take a frog gigg thru the chest and not defend himself! I was simply looking for other views and exchange ideas of how somthing this horrible comes to be. If your not of that mentality level why don't you stay off this site.

From what I have heard chris and rose were just getting set up at that place on borrowed money. Whatthey have so valuable that cater stole? What caused this rage that got so out control. I agree with previous post why did carter use hatchet if he had. AShotgun. Why did media leave So many holes in this story?

hachet was in side and back of head-like he ducked. I'm not trying to start a fight. I was just remembering headlines “man hits neighbor in forhead with hatchet” just curious how media can use a flat out lie-in their headlines. Makes you question how valid rest of info is that they report.

Someone told me. Carter was bonded out of jail for 20,000!!! Does anyone know if that is true? He must have some rich friends or was it like a 10% thing?

Your probably right. More lives lost and ruined by drugs. When do you think the justice system will figure out that regulating our cold meds isn't the answer to stop drugs. Maybe if they imopse stiffer penalties and jail time people will think twice before getting taking a hit & getting hooked.

for one the shyt that was stolen was my little brother and sisters stuff. thats y it mattered soo much. for two it wasnt my dads property. the landlord lived next door. for three the police found daniel in the barn and when they was walking him to the car he ran. and for the rest of you all none of it should matter to you. it was murder simple as that. my dad got hit in the left side of the head towards the back and daniel did it infront of all the kids. he's a sick bastard that thinks its all fun and games. theres no reason for him to feel sorry now cause theres nothing he can do now. my dads gone and its his fault. he should either rot in prison or die himself.. and thats how i feel about it

To " Sorry" - you have to be be one suck minded , low life individual to make a comment to his daughter! Right after she posted it! So I will tell you this, I whole heartedly believe in KARMA , and by gosh you will get yours!!!!!!

Megan, you have tons of support. We are grown adults and should know how to put our differences of opinions to the side to be there for you and everyone else in the family. Regardless of what they think they know what happened! Dumb asses , these days!

Has Carter been indicted by the grand jury yet? I heard in pre trial bond was set & some charges reduced but bourbon county jail website doesn't reflect that.
