Yeah..really JUST because someone is a drug user, thief, rapist, murderer, bank robber or pedophile does not mean they are a BAD person. Do you not know a VICTIM when you see or read about one ???..... You judgmental people SUCK !!!
I don't know if you can really call him a victim...more like a result, a statistic. Is he a victim? Or just someone that played a dangerous game and lost...in other words...A Loser...

my brother-n-law died young of a drug overdose(36). he also went to prison and spent half of his life there. he developed cancer and became addicted to prescription pain pills. the doc took him off them when cancer went away. he traded his xanax for oxycotin and mixed thoes pills with alcohol and it killed him. the lady he traded with is now being tried for 2nd degree murder. the drugs made his behavior "bad". I would not say he was a "bad" person as when "clean" I had seen so much "good" in him in the short time I knew him.

I bet you have drug addicts, and people with unsavory characteristics i your family, bet you wish they were dead too.
Yes, I have one like that in my family and if he were to die, it would be a better world. "Just because someone does drugs doesn't make them (sic) a bad person." Yes, it does!

So are you saying that you want to see your family member die instead of getting help ? That seems like a pretty harsh comment. "Some" users do get clean. They can make you so angry you may feel this way but after something happens it is too late nothing can be done to bring them back. I am sure you would feel differently then because I do. Death changes everything.

What I am saying is that if the drug-addicted, sociopathic liar and thief were dead, this world would be a somewhat better place. Don't worry, though. He'll probably outlive both of us and grow old as a burden to taxpayers like your children and mine.

I did not say I want him dead. I said the world would be a better place without him. That is because he is a self-centered liar, thief, and drug addict. He hurts people.

I would be delighted if he could be cured of what ails him. But you know and I know that his addictions (to drugs, easy money, and breaking the law anytime it suits him) will probably only cease when he dies.

In my experience a family member died and I said, "oh well," and moved on. Death didn't change anything but keeping one more user from being a drain.

blaming the victim and bringing up things they may or may not have done in the past is ridiculous. He sounds like the worst kind of person for vandalizing a tv, oh no. seems to me that none of you are from here and shouldn't run your mouths about things you dont know about. your the same people who cheered when garrett benson was murdered in front of his girlfriend. i dare you to come up here and talk **** about these people to anyone on the street. Sanders didnt ask to be robbed and killed, he doesnt deserve the blame. Blame those making meth and doing the robberies.
He did more than just vandalize TV's. And if you want to blame those making meth, then why not those dealing it? Oh, I'm sure he bought $1,400 worth for personal use---not to distribute into our community.

"Burgess Family
Contributed by the Burgess Family of Blocksburg

George Washington Burgess was nearly killed by a log rolling down a steep mountainside before he ever got to Blocksburg. He, however, succeeded in outliving the doctor who pronounced him fatally injured.

Contributed by Beverley Windbigler of Blocksburg

"When Barbara Burgess and her husband, Pete, bought the old Overland Hotel in 1944, the post office came with it. Ruth Hofer was the postmaster at the time, and when her husband died she sold the hotel and moved away. She talked Barbara into taking on the postmaster's job. "

"Contributed by Beverley Windbigler of Blocksburg"

"Georgette Ripple was a Blocksburg postmaster for 20 years. She was a little nervous when she had to go to Eureka to take a postal test in 1960. Her sister-in-law was resigning after 15 years, and the Blocksburg postmaster position was open. The post office was located in the corner of the general store owned by her brother, Pete Burgess. "

I've seen people get off offelony charges for doing the same kind of crap in Humboldt because their families had a whole lot of money to back them up so quit making him out to be such a bad bad dude. Lots of people get addicted to drugs and some can still function and do great things with their lives while others are destroyed by them. Just look at Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, Ole Dirty Bastard, Tupac. Meth addiction is a real tough thing to cure. Tougher than crack or heroin.

People just make "bad" and it does not make them a "bad" person. Some are "weak" and continue to make these choices again and again. They need help but cannot get help if they do not want it. That is what happens with drugs involed and no intervention. I have lost both a sister and brother-n-law to drugs.<quoted text>
Finally someone who gets it, thank you. i dont like, trust, or hang with tweakers, but that doesn't mean people deserve to die. assclowns who post hate and talk S*** about things they know nothing about are bad people. Wait till something like this happens to someone in your family and see what you think about them. The moral is feel sorry for those who lost and hate on those responsible.
