Can you people not read ir write? Try reading again he had a job. He had been scrapping metal for extra money to get an apartment. For whatever reason he shot the power line, now he is dead. Why dont people go find something to do with your time other then sitting around talking about something none of you know about. Because you wasnt there.

scrapping metal or stealing copper, there is no difference. He was still a thief for it so why would one make him sound better than the other? He was up there stealing and karma got involved. Stealing metal instead of copper had jacksh1t to do with anything

so your threatening to shoot the responder in the face? do you not understand that it's a FEDERAL park ranger. Just saying that should land you on jail. You're pretty dumb to even make the comment you made. It doesn't make you sound hard or cool it makes you sound like an idiot. You're probably like your "boys" and is a thief too. You'll probably land 6 foot under for drugs or stealing before actually go and do anything to the responder.

youre exactly right there's a reason these guys are all friends , they're CrIMInALS like I said maybe this Matt will be next. People like thisis what's wrong with Fayette county and hell West Virginia as a whole but Fayette county is awful because of These kinda scumbags.

damnright. A thief is worthless as a junkie. Didnt he work in the mines? Not sure but if so thank god I didn't have to be underground with such a dumbass and if he did work in the mines and still live with mommy and daddy how the hell could he not afford an apartment lol

So anyone that steals or what people assume as stealing should die? But the baby rapers, women beaters and drug dealers should get achievement awards? Wow, you go Fayette County, show the world how ass backwards you are. Instead of helping thy neighbor in any links, lets kill them. That is the Godly thing to do, right? SMH. Anyways, they do have families. Do you guys think maybe you should let it go instead the family having to go threw people bashing a mistake?

Look just to sit the record straight charles is not in jail his sister did not bond him out a bail bondsman did. I think i would know i was there i talked to the magistrate who set his bail and with detective perdue. charles is not a bad guy did he make some bad decisions yes but we all make bad decisions some results are just worse than others. I do know what happened i have talked to the cops and with charles. everybody on here needs to chill out and stop bashing them both families are already under enough stress. It is sad for both families one lost a son the other has a son that is going to jail. Put yourself in there shoes for a moment how would you like to try to go to sleep at night and all that goes thru your mind is your friend been electrocuted. im not saying what they were doing was right but you dont have to sit here and put them down. i bet if charles was right in front of you you wouldnt say a word to him. you guys who get on here and bash the families are a bunch of cowards

I've got some low lifes in my immediate family who have shot power lines down for copper & done time for it. It wasn't target practice, it was theft. If they die doing, then they did it to themselves. Yes, mothers lose sons & children lose fathers & it hurts. But stop sugar coating it. If someone does something stupid & dies for it, it's their own damn fault.

I didnt know the Norris Boy But I sure as Hell knew the Newhouse Boy, Dalton was a GREAT Kid, An Extreme Hunter He has worked Hard for the things he had,He has never done drugs. He didnt deserve what he got. To sit on this site and call someone you dont know the names that you do is sad.God says Thou shall not Judge and here you are Judging someone you dont even know So before you get on here and talk your smack how about you get your facts. People are hurting and all you can do is add to their pain. Judgement day is coming and you will be at the top of the list I Hope God sends thousands of Volts through your Body little by little til you turn to ashes.. REST IN PEACE DALTON We LOVE You wheather you were doing wrong or Not... And NOBODY But the 3 will ever know what really happened on that Mountain. GOD, DALTON, And the NORRIS Boy, So how bout we leave the JUDGING Up to GOD....

If God is the only judge then why are you judging others here and hoping they are electrocuted and tuned to ashes?
