there were 3 little scared girls at the time of this shooting but no one has mentioned that. it is horrible that the daughter of the shooting victim had to see this. i am not suprised this happened in starke county because they do not take domestic abuse seriously there. i know this first hand. maybe now the elected officialls will wake up and do something down there instead of sweeping it under the rug

I agree with true blue. starke county does not take domestic violence seriously, and I guess you got to be related to someone on the police force or to the prosecutors or judges to get any justice. No one should die the way this woman did, rumors are flying everywhere that the fight between the married couple was over the son, somehow there's more to this story and why is starke county keeping it so hush hush, something to hide or guilty conscious?

starke county and the good ole boys try to cover up everything. Even their own officers are guilty of domestic violence and stay on the force. many are the drug lords of the county

I am so glad to see that my family is not the only ones to feel this way about this county. This situation is horrible, This man is obviously sick. However, like the above comments, if the officials would of done something about this previously maybe all this could of been prevented. This man that was shot has a long history of criminal acts and I believe he was involved in something much more than the news is stating. Isn't odd that his family is on the police department and this man has gottten off for all crimes, and is now in the hospital and noone is saying what really happened, his stautus, or etc. I am very sorry for the loss of this familys mother, sister, aunt, what a terrible way to lose your life especially to someone who has sworn to love and protect her. I am sorry for your loss.

It is truly horrible how these crimes are becoming the common thing in our area! Our local officials are not properly trained to handle domestic violence. So many of those that are supposed to be trained to serve and protect us lack very heavily in this department and not to mention how they handle the aftermath of it all. It's a terrible shame that there isn't more help in our area for women of domestic abuse!

i know this family well and even took care of two of the little girls that had to see this awfull thing, they loved and trusted earnie as a grandpa and a father because the father of these girls, marys son was and is totally worthless. and jay or jeremy is the main cause of the problem but i guess when ur uncle was sherrif thats ok. my prayers go out to the babies and earnie for doing what so many others wanted to

for all that say nothing is done with the domestic abuse in this county maybe when youre boyfriend or husband or what most say soulmate beats you up and then you call 911 for help and the officer gets to your place to help then maybe you should let the officer do his job.most of the time the "battered" dosent want them to go to jail so they say just make him leave and the very next day their back in romance so it doesnt matter if they do know someone or family is on the police force so when your crying for the police and when they show up to help let them do their job

obviously u have never lived in starke county u are ignorant by the way u think. u try living there and see what justice u get and yes its true most woman that r abused go back 15 to 20 times before they finally leave their abuser. That is one of the steps an abused person goes threw. so do ur research before u put anything on line cuz u dont know what u r talking about and make ur self look stupid. and its because of ignorant people like u that nothin gets done about abuse, cause u people just turn the other cheek. how would u like it if ur daughter or sister or mother got beat would u just say "oh stop ur whining u deserve it" i dont think so. and great 4 u that u have never been hit but if u had been i dont think such a stupid comment would have been posted by u. so keep on thinking ignorant there is a lot of good people who have been abused and got away from their abuser. unless you have been in the same situation you should keep your mouth shut

that is true of the cycle of abuse, women stay because of children, finances, or just really no hope to ever get out, or are truly scared, as for the police doing their job, well that is questionable in starke county, but in other counties even if the woman doesn't want to press charges the prosecutors office does anyway no matter what the woman wants or doesn't want and that's how it should be. And truly unless you have been abused I don't think anyone can really understand it. There truly isn't much help for abused women in starke county except for the caring place ext out of valpo who are wonderful people, I know first hand that our law makers don't want the hassel to prosecute this type of case, because they know they aren't going to win it with the judges, again people take a good look at who you put in office.

i'm really sorry that you would pray for my dad doing such a horrific act as this....do not encourage and praise these actions! my dad is mentally sick...pray he gets help with that....not that he shot someone!! pray for the Risner family that God may ease their hearts from the hurt they feel....and i will pray for you that you may change your way of thinking...YOU THINK YOU KNOW, BUT YOU HAVE NO CLUE!!

Dear Knox Truth-u r so right. People hate to hear the truth. We have so many I scratch your back u scratch mine mentality in our county. I won't even start on my opinion of our county's current "look". I know for a fact as long as you "know someone" you are A O K. To hell with those who have to live with the things going on. Who cares if no one agrees w/U. Freedom of speech is one of the few right we have in America. So, just like TRUTH has a right to voice the other side does too. We as a community need to read between the lines...if we all do only then can WE make anything turn for the better. We have police who have kids (excuse me-adult age children) going out, committing crimes and knowing daddy/mommy can fix it. People need to start going to meeting, listening, learning. I know quite a few "officials" in our county....some good...some not so good. WE are our county-why can't we be one people don't make fun of for our corruption. I am so glad Estock is not mayer. He is so under the table...in more ways then 1.

trueblue actually most people who are abused go back to their abusers and even more sad are the cases that go unreported. As for making the insinuation that starke county only has this problem ,there have been many other cases when domestic abuse has escalated into murder.Ex.Pulaski county as well as a case featured in the Chicago Trib. Maybe we should quit pointing fingers and try giving these women and men being abused something more than a protective order that holds no more weight than the paper it's printed on.

I am very glad Estock is not in there any longer also.. He covered up SSssOoooo many crimes for his son while he was in office it is almost unbeleivable if I told You but i promise you the same police officers who helped him cover up his sons crimes are still in there covering and frameing people.. I work for a certain agency and if you can only beleive the things (I) see and hear daily.. If there is someone on the Police force that grew up with someone and they dont like that person and that person has a son who is now 18 or older beleive me son WILL be in jail,, if he even jay walks and if he didnt jay walk well he did... If you look funny and a officer does not like you well you will be arrested (TRUST ME YOU WILL) If for any reason ANY cop in this County I mean City, County, or State does not like you,, Trust me YOUR ASS WILL BE OUT and your family and freinds asses also and there are people on this blog telling the truth (THE COURT WILL help out with those charges) you know JUST DOIN THERE JOB,, Right Mr. Duerring??? The Jail here in Starke County holds 50 inmates there is as of today 88 inmates.. Visiting stops at 8:00 PM we did it until past 11:00 pm last night because of SSSssOOooo overcrowded and I PERSONALLY know that 69 do nat need to be sitten in that jail waisting YOUR tax dollars but they are sitten in there because some person working for OUR County wants that person in there so YOU and ME will pay for there little bug up there ass.. There are people on here that know the truth ( If you only knew) We as citizens of this County do have to take OUR County BACK.... We dont have to play there game

After not reading these blogs for months I am surprised at the way people are opening up about their feelings on things happening in this county. You can write down state regarding some of these issues, to the disciplinary commission regarding lawyers, judges , and there is an agency who police the police. Look on the net there is an agency for everything. Maybe with enough letters people may start looking into what goes on down here. House arrest may not be the answer, because the prosecutors office and lawmakers here control that also, I know someone on house arrest who is attending a benefit tonight where there are both alcohol and felons attending, both of which he isn't supposed to be around. So go figure, it's just another way to get your tax dollars, these people on house arrest only have to ask permission to go someplace and they go. The point being, why be on house arrest if you get to go where you want anyway?It is corrupt in this county ,I agree, we need to take action start writing letters to anyone and everyone and take our county and our country back. Anyone who breaks the law of the land needs consequences and not just a little slap on the wrist, instead our police officers are hasseling kids in Norwayne field in NJ for skateboarding, I guess meth labs , drug dealing, murder, wife beating, and child abuse aren't enough to keep them busy. I've always said it's who you are and know in this county. Better be friends or relatives with a police officer, or a judge or a prosecutor if you want your ass saved.

It's also terrible that there isn't more help in our area for men of domestic abuse.Especially when women use it to their advantage against men knowing the law will believe them no matter what.
