To Tyeric's support: You cannot imagine the outrage that your ignorant "bro" caused. I will spend every last dollar I personally have to assure that he is never let out of jail... Tyeric's such a great dad?? How would he like someone to put a bullet in his child? What kind of father brings a gun on "vacation". Let's be honest, he was wanted in NE for shooting his girlfriend over crack, and that's why he was "visiting" his aunt. That's why he ran from the scene. All (not "alls") Darby wanted was to get some compensation for his truck. By the way, did you know Darby wasn't driving either?? Maybe if Tyeric didn't get out of the car and run like a little pussy, Darby wouldn't have had anything to chase down. You have to let people be angry over this...it is TRAGIC and WASTEFUL (only capitalize letters when you want to provide emphasis). Forgiveness and compassion MAY come later from some, but right now WE ARE PISSED and tremendously sad. Do you know how much I would LOVE to visit Darby in jail? I'm sure Tyeric's a real bad ass in Omaha...send him to Detroit. I hope you are letting his daughters know what a fuck up their dad is, how HE made the decision to kill someone, how HE MADE THAT DECISION, and made the choice to shoot someone. That choice was more important to him then his daughters. Of course, I'm not surprised, since as I stated before, Tyeric had no regard for human life. You're right - it's between God and Tyeric. God will make sure that he is sent to the depths of hell, and burn for eternity. I hope they let him keep his belt in jail.maybe he'll use it (honestly none of the taxpayers want to pay to keep his ass alive). Can't wait to see you at the sentencing...remember, no guns in the courthouse! JAIL TYERIC FOREVER!!!!

None of the Claar/Kimberly family has written anything on this website. There's no one for them to support, remember? Their family member is gone....MURDERED by your big brother. Again, I cannot think of any justification for killing another human. Can you?

Elaine- While I appreciate your support, this is not a racially based incident. We would still want the MURDERER jailed forever, regardless of race. Let's not give them any reason to bring race into these dialogues. The cause is sheer ignorance and possession of an illegal firearm, not the color of skin. Fight the good fight and stay focused on the real issues.

Did I say anything about race, Sad? Oh, and of course it's never a 'racially based' incident when a white person gets killed. If the shoe were on the other foot, north Minneapolis would be holding a peace march as we speak. Shut the hell up Sad.

Life in the electric chair for the low-life POS!! That's my response to the ignorant supporters of this murdering scum. His protractors attack the people posting here because "we weren't there," they conveniently forget that THEY WEREN'T EITHER. They're too stupid and ignorant to accept that. "If Tyeric say it, it must be the truth." Yeah right, and I've got some good ocean front property for sale just east of Omaha.

Ok SOV (Sick of Violence ) No more guns . cool
Oh how about knives ? bats ? brass ? clubs ? bottles ? stones ? Back in the day blah blah, unless you are older than gun power ( that would make you like 1500 ) it was the day of axes, swords, blades, you name it. So what about PC libs ? The stats of those in jail are the ones who are not rich to post bail. Besides if you mean prison then stick bush in there cuz heis using some big guns.

Obviously, reality is striking a nerve in most of you.

The facts are that Mr. Lessley was the passenger, just like Darby. both drivers remained at the accident. Darby's buddy decided that they would be the police and ram the vehicle to get it to stop. They stopped. Lessley got out and WALKED away (see the complaint). Darby followed him. why? Both drivers were still there and the driver of Lessley's vehicle did have insurance and a valid dl. Now what? Nothing prohibits the passenger from leaving. The passenger did not cause the accident!

AVHS grad, you must have skipped statistics! The jail is littered with AFAM. True. Do you see patterns of child molestation and the catholic priests rapping young boys. Of course. What color are they? Not black. You hear about violence in the black community far more than you hear about violence in apple valley (those guys who beat their wives and drive drunk and kill their own friends with baseball bats, or kill people just b/c they are black. This had nothing to do with race. The only people that race mattered to were Darby and his friends.

This was not road rage! Lessley left! Darby followed him! If you read the complaint, you will also see that Darby not only followed Lessley, but punched him twice in the face. I guess only self defense applies to whites! Isn't it being the bigger man to walk away, even though you have a gun??!?!?!?? And no, lessley was not wanted in Nebraska.

Sounds like the HUMAN race to me! Two families are affected. Unfortunately one is no longer with us physically. Lessley's family sends their hearts out to Darby's family, no matter who was at fault.

Speaking from someone who was there when it happened...This was not about race, it was about damages to Darby's vehicle.
Darby never chased after anyone in his life. He stayed away from altercations. If Darby really chased after him, why was Darby's body so near his truck? Why was Darby more than 6 feet away from Tyeric when he was shot? Darby obviously was not next to him and in his face. Why did Tyeric try to flee, perhaps because of the illegal hand gun he had in his possession? Hmmm how many people take a gun with them on vacation?
Tyeric is 5'9" and 200 pounds, not a small man. Darby was about the same height and weighed much less. Tyeric had nothing to fear physically from Darby.
I saw Tyeric in court on Thursday, IF Darby hit him there are certainly not any marks on Tyeric to show this. Why did Darby have to die? Why was it necessary to shoot him?
Yes, both families suffered a loss, but Tyeric's family will get to see him and talk to him. Darby's family and friends will never have that opportunity again.
It does not matter what Darby's past is with DWI's, Darby was not driving. Guess he learned his lessons about drinking and driving. Darby is the one that was shot and killed.
I am sure that Tyeric's family feels he is wrongly jailed and that he should be freed. He had NO right to take a life. One day he will be free, after he serves his sentence. 40 years is the maximum sentence for his charges.

Look up the warrants in NE, He does have a warrant.
As far as Darby punching him in one or two times (this is what Tyeric told the police and is in the complaint) What Tyeric can't remember if it was once or twice? What is in the complaint is what Tyeric told them, his version. Using a gun in this case is not self defense. Fists...Gun...does not seem equal...

Who's not sick of the violence its everywhere, but people need to stop judging people because of what they here in the news. Fact that are created in the media are not always true, and in most cases are one sided. If anyone paid attention to Mr. Obamas speech there is a one-sided view about african-americans in society any way.

As the sibling of a murder victim I know it is easy to judge someone and want to see them suffer for 2 years now I have wonder who killed my little brother. The police told me a few days after his murder that the appearent hispanic man that killed him was on a bus or train back to mexico, instead of saying Im sorry mam we have no new information but were working on the case. Too this day I have no answers. If yaw would stop whining and wait and see what reall happened instead of being so racially mean and sterotypical you might learn something.

Just to "nip it in the bud," let's save the whining nanny crowd their efforts. First of all, I'm sure this was a legally possessed, registered firearm. Secondly, you can be certain without a doubt, that good old Tyeric had a conceal-carry permit, with no criminal history. Now with that out of the way it's open season time on the suspect.
Guess what buddy I don't think that Mr. Tyeric had a conceal-carry permit because who is gonna give a person with his criminal record a conceal-carry permit
