Jacob Steele is a rotten scumbag, he sells meth and has burglarized homes around Mckinleyville and Arcata. My wife and I both hope that he gets the book thrown at him and his disgusting drugged out family.

What a lying lowlife punk. Jerry George was no nice guy himself but the Steele kid thought he coulds snuff him just to impress his garbage relations/friends. Hope the state X's him and puts his pals away too. Meantime Bubba and Big Mustafa will welcome him with open arms.

See from Times Standerd
"On Friday, Richard Steele offered brief testimony that sharply contradicted several things his cousin said on the stand earlier in the week.
While Jacob Steele testified that he sells methamphetamine but he's never done the drug, Richard Steele said he smoked methamphetamine with his cousin in the hours after George's death. While helping his cousin roll George's body into a tarp, Richard Steele testified, he found a bag of crystal methamphetamine on George's body.
”What'd you do with that?” Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos asked.
”I got high,” Richard Steele answered, adding that he smoked the drug with Jacob Steele.
Jacob Steele testified Thursday that Richard Steele and another man, Shawn Hof, smoked George's methamphetamine but that he didn't use the drug -- and never has. Gallegos asked the defendant if it seemed callous that they were getting high off George's methamphetamine while his body was in the apartment, and Steele said that was a question the prosecutor would have to ask Hof and Richard Steele.
On Friday, Richard Steele testified that he had a drug problem at the time and that Jacob Steele didn't usually do methamphetamine but needed a boost that night in order to bury George's body and cover up the killing.
”He just did it that night because he needed some energy,” Richard Steele testified."

You had better take a better look at Jacob's parents, there's nothing more than a couple of old tweakers themselves.

I never said they weren't. So growing up with drug addicted parents gives you more reason to gloat about a sad situation. Your real mature. Looks like you better take a look at yourself.

Aren't u the one claiming how much a scumbag dude is because of violence. Alls I ever said is think about the kids but your twisted self would rather act tough on the Internet. I don't do drugs I rarely have a drink and I doubt you could ever hurt me seeing as i probably have 100 lbs on u. Take your aggression out on the gym before u lose it and we are commenting about you. Works for me

George Zimmerman was 98 pounds or so heavier than Trayvon Martin. 17 year old Trayvon still beat him up with his fists, and rightly so, before he was shot to death with a 9 mm. Size really doesn't make a difference in a country where almost every thug that can tie their shoes carries some sort of weapon.
