If you think that anything being said on this site influences a damn murder trial you're a complete idiot. People have these posts removed because the family doesn't want to have to deal with all these rumors about what happened. The family knows what happened from the witnesses statements and from the investigators. Removing these posts would be out of respect for the families involved.

It's not hard to figure out who caused it all. There were witnesses and the piece of sh!t murderers are in custody. Doesn't matter what it was over, these pieces of sh!ts killed someone. Cowards. There ain't nothing to hide. It was a fight and a coward pulled a knife. End of story.

It wasn't over a girl. That was just one of the stories that went around. Out of respect for the family that's all I can say

I just don't want this horrendous tragedy to be swept under the rug or plea bargained down to something less than the capital murder charge it should be. My sympathies lie completely with the Hogg and other victim families. I personally know that James is a violent, drugged-out thug. Again, no harm intended.

Where did all of the comments go about the killing? Strange! Is someone trying to cover something up?
The families probably want The gossip to stop have some respect for them

They took it off, because the fight was over an underage girl who drinking at Streetside. The posts said that. Our crooked police officers are trying to save their buddies establishment. That's probably why the report says that Charlie looked over the tapes instead of the police doing it. This town is awful.

They followed Hogg out of town and did more, and you don't think that was intentional?

There have been more incidents of violent behavior where no charges were filed. The morning of Dec. 3 the police responded to an altercation where James had beaten a man with a mallet. The man was sent to the hospital but no charges were filed. Later that evening he was involved in the hour long stand off with the police on a different issue. There have been more incidents of violent behavior either in fights or allegations of abuse where no charges were filed. In each situation where he was arrested, he was out of jail the next day. I also know that he has used the mental health care to avoid charges or to get his family to help him. Check himself in for a few days to get help, then check himself back out. It wont be that easy in this case but I hope those people who let it be that easy before take a long look at the results of their decisions.

If James had any family there thye were probably making a doctor visit for xanax and suboxone just know they would only be there if it was drug related.
