its sad really how dumb people can get. think theyre big and tough all because of theyre city gang protection. id like for them to come face to face with my hunting shotgun or my rifle then we will see how tough these pussies really are. Always have to gang up on someone because they dont have the nerve to fight one on one.

Brian Bosen did a great job on this story and also the story about internet high speed competition. You ought to give him a raise.

The media portrayal of these two young men is completely innacurate. They were both surounding themselves with bad people trying to make a quick buck...but murderers they are not..I know for a fact what they did was in fear for their own lives. James Salkil is the murder, I believe the truth will come out soon. I do agree that Ben and Nathan should have some consequences..but they should not have to pay with thier lives. Just remember they have families who are victims in this crime. Please pray for them...and the families of everyone involved.

I dont pray for bullies and beating a man up is never the answer to any problem.

I also know some of the people invlolved. It went like this, they were all at James for a party. Him and Anthony were arguing and James grabbed a bat. After beating Anthony he ordered the other 2 to help him dispose of the guy. What Nate and Ben did, they did out of fear for their own lives. Then James told Ben to leave the keys in his car overnight or he'd come in and get them. When he woke up the car was gone and he had no idea to where. It is James who is the murderer and he bullied the other 2 into helping him, then he tried to hide the evidence. Not saying Nate and Ben are innocent, they should have called the cops the second they were free of James, but they didnt attack Anthony. Although leaving another human to die on the side of the road is messed up. They made a dumb decision, but they are not murderers and dont deserve life. And before you feel too bad for Anthony, think about the fact that he participated in a drive-by in 2008. http://www.oskaloosaherald.com/clintonherald/...
What happened to him was messed up, but nobody involved was a saint.

I have read everyones posts. And personally I don't give a hoot the reasoning for why those 2 guys kicked the living shit out of someone and pretty much left him for dead.. Its bullshit all around and I hope like hell the 2 that did this get the life in prison or far worse.. Kill them.. It wasn't case of wrong place or wrong time, what they did was horrific and personally a bunch of pussies if they have to jump the guy cause their punks that can't fight one on one.. Get a clue people...

Nate is a good guy...I swear it. There has to be more to the story. They are innocent until proven guilty.

If Tony is such a good guy, then why was he being charged in two different serious crimes. Very few people give out a beating like that for no reason, just because something bad happened to him doesn't mean that we should forget the horrible things that he has done.. I don't believe these two were the master minds behind this, someone else was calling all the shots and the cops need to go find him!!

I know Ben and he is a good kid. He did not beat Tony but because of fear could not protect him from James. He should have called the cops once James left but being young he panicked. Believe me he is paying for this and will pay for it for a long time... along with his family!! But should he get life? No. Go after the guy who lost it. He's the evil one.

What a terrible thing to say! You should be ashamed of yourself. Not only are you threatening my man. Your threatening a stranger who is just stating their opinion. I think there has been enough violence, grow up! This scares me...when does the violence end? At least your dumb enough to post a threat on the internet where the ip address can be looked up. Just let the police and the courts settle this.
