I have no condolences for the man who didn't think before he reacted. If only he would have used his peanut brain and thought of the hurt he was going to cause both families. If he was smart, he should have put the gun in his mouth instead of putting it to his chest. He's a coward and cowards burn in hell.............

DARREN JOHNSON IS NOTHING BUT A LITTLE COWARD ASS PUSSY. IF HE WAS SMART HE WOULD HAVE SHOT HIMSELF WITH A TWELVE GAUGE SHOTGUN WITH A THREE INCH MAG. HE HAS COST JOE CANDIES FAMILY SO MUCH PAIN. JOE LEFT BEHIND A LITTLE GIRL WHO IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING SPECIAL SOMEDAY. SHE LOVED HER DADDY SO MUCH, NOTHING AND NO ONE WILL EVER BE ABLE TO REPLACE HIM AND THAT POOR BABY HAS TO LIVE THE REST OF HER LIFE WONDERING WHY DIPSHIT JOHNSON DID THIS TO HER DADDY.JOE WAS ALL ABOUT TAKING CARE OF HIS FAMILY,GOING TO WORK AND MAKING MONEY. HE GREW UP IN DETROIT WHERE CRIME IS IN THE TOP FIVE IN THE NATION, HE CHOSE TO BETTER HIMSELF AND NOT BE A LOSER ASS DRUG DEALER OR KILLER,GANG MEMBER. HE TOOK CARE OF HIS FAMILY AND MOST OF ALL WAS A FATHER TO HIS CHILD. UNLIKE MOST OF THE LOSER ASS SO CALLED DADDYS OUT THERE. THIS SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED AND DARREN NEEDS TO WRITE THIS FAMILY A LETTER AND TELL THE REASON WHY, THEN HE SHOULD FRY.

Before we convict,let us get all the facts. You have to ask yourself,what was the relationship before and how long was it allowed to fester? Why would he just shoot because of an arguement? Do the words self defense,perceived threat or fear of life mean anything? To understand the"corruptness" of supervision within the MDOC is to understand how such a thing could happen. It doesn't surprise me that such a terrible thing has happened.What surprises me the most is that it didn't happen sooner. However,trust me we will see this again,but the next time I bet the shooter will be female

Any charges brought up yet? I thought his trial was postponed for some reason. It's messed up behind those wires, on both sides. There had to be way more to the story that people don't know about. I heard he D.J. was being harassed by supervision. Not hard to believe.

In addition, if he was being harassed that is no reason to go out shooting someone. Unfortunately when he turned the gun on himself, he failed. Now he will be behind those barbed wire fences and walls the rest of his life. I can see how someone may snap working in that kind of environment.
