Good, he killed that chick and ruined two other kids lives. I would like to sympathize for a death but it really is hard to in the end. Did he ever have any sympathy for what he did?

Here's a good question.. Why was he still in the perry county jail?? He was sentenced in June! Who was responsible for watching him? You would think that he would have been under close watch since he was being transferred to DOC that day? So many unanswered questions..
Anyway, all families involved are in my prayers

Yeah, makes no since for the court to order him directly to stay there until the 5th. If you read the article thats what it said. Weird...

Hope hell's hot enough for him. I kinda feel sorry for the family, but if he had been raised properly, none of this shit would've happened in the first place. Its also good that the taxpayers won't have to foot the bill for that piece of shit anymore.

First of all, he was raised properly and I know that for a FACT. FACT: He got to hanging around with the wrong kind of "crowd" - and got into trouble for/with/etc some friends once - maybe this time he took their fall? Anyone can raise a child properly - it's who they hang around when you are not knowing... He got bullied into this, and the truth will come out someday!
taxpayers and "footing the bill?" HOW many of your tax dollars are spent on repeat offenders who never learn their lesson? or the deadbeat parents too lazy to take ANY job to at least show effort? Need more examples of how you waste your tax money?
His surviving family is very hurt by this - and you have some nerve given YOU do NOT KNOW how he was raised, let alone the decent circumstances in a loving and caring home! How is YOUR "home" situation and that of YOUR family members?

Well Mona why don't you let us in on the secret? Maybe we could be a little more understanding. The way it is it looks like he was a POS who savagely murdered this nice young girl who's half sister must have helped cover it up...

Mona, I'll give you an example right now of how my tax dollars are being wasted: Chris Coleman!! I for one am sick of people who murder, rape, steal, do drugs and the excuse is "the wrong crowd" or any other excuse. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Bullied into killing someone? Please--why didn't all this come out before sentencing? Was his lawyer asleep or drunk? This theory doesn't pass the laugh test. And by the way, my home situation is fine and none of my family members have ever been sentenced for murder.

^unrelated to this, some 'crimes' are victimless and serve worse purpose as a crime rather than decriminalized or minimized. Alot of things are all in your head. We live in very shitty times, and we all get off on making ourselves a prison. Murder and rape and stealing, those are very bad. But many other things that are illegal do not affect you one bit. America is a country of bullies.

People need to be accepting and not judge. From my understanding, everybody I heard from that was locked up with this kid said he acted like he didn't know what he did or wasn't real sorry if I understand correctly. I have always been a believer in belgium's prison style moreso than ours. Taking them out of society is punishment alone. You do 20-25 years for something like that your life is pretty well ruined anyhow. You won't be the same, won't come out knowing the same people, won't want to do it again in general.

I don't feel sorry for him either though. Not at all. Don't get this mixed up.

I believe to be told there is a holding period from sentence to prison then to a prison and held there a bit b4 going to the final institution. The deputies made there rounds as they are supposed to and Dane was giving no special signs to be wached any closer than the next...as I have heard. Lets not point blame. He murdered and he was FAILED...FAILED by parents. As many are...so sad :(

Why if may ask did his grandpa raise him? If that is so. And if Dane was bullied when younger...that is sad and needs to be stopped in our schools NOW!
