So very sad. I would like to share a few things with you about Mike. I haven't known him as a homeless man but I knew him as a kid and as an adult before he moved to NC. I believe he was born with fetal alcohol syndrome. He had a horrible childhood. But he was a very kind and gentle kid and man. He never said anything mean and never raised a hand to anyone. But he was an alcoholic. Not a mean drunk but a 'drink until I don't hurt anymore' drunk. He preferred to be alone. He didn't really think much of himself. Even as a kid, he hung out in the woods. I guess he felt safe there. May he finally rest in peace.
Thanks for putting human side to a terrible addiction, people are often judged by their associations and life style.

As I read the article the first time, I kind of had an impression that more was hidden then people knew; as even the people of the mini mall or what ever business' didn't complain or ridicule the man.

What these individuals did was appalling and I hope no mercy of the court will be shown. Tammy you did your friend a great service to let people know he was more than just a homeless man.

thanks for those words tammy, To beat a man to death is just wrong. For three young men to do it to one almost twice thier age is worse. I didn't know Mike but can empathize with some of his life. It's a sadsadsad world at times. May he rest in peace.

yes, this crime is awful but America is in rapid decline now. We will see much more of this kind of thing.
