I guess I'll go ahead and start. It is scary that someone with the propensity to murder their whole family is now back in society.

Here is a kid living with his own demons.

I pray the Good Lord Blesses him, and gives him the strength he will need to face life.

I am not saying what he did was not wrong, but
I was not the one going through the hell that
he did.

May God Bless you Cody!!

Aren't you the person with all the bad ratings. I have got to believe you are again on the wrong side. Stay in California!

Murder is wrong but Cody Posey has been punished according to the law and is free to now live his life. I think he's suffered enough for a lifetime and now he deserves a fresh start. Let God be his judge and keep him in your prayers that he may find peace and contentment in his future.

I hope you are right. My prayers are with him but more so for any other innocent who may be endangered by him and his 'demons'.

I personally don't care about the ratings. I have every right to
voice my opinion.

Cody did his time neither YOU or I lived the hell he did.

You can give me all the bad judgments you like. But this is not
about you or I. It is about a kid that needs everyones prayers.

You may not need Gods Blessings, but he surely does.

I never listen to Californuts trying to tell us how to live. They mess up their state and then they go for ours. Why is this person posting here anyway? Do they know this boy or his dead family?

Seems some guys still don't see that the location given under the moniker is not necessary the place where the poster is located... just saying.

In Calif,he would have tried as an adult and spent his whole life in prison.The system in NM is begging for more problems from teenagers.What difference does it make what you do with your teen years as long as when you become an adult you get a fresh start?I had a rough time as a teenager and I went and lived with my aunt for a while untill things got better.He should have taken help from people who were reaching out to him.

To Murder is wrong and New Mexican:

There is nothing more revealing than the "righteous" "UNRIGHTEOUS"!
If you had followed the trial, you could possibly be informed and intelligent.

This young man was fourteen at the time this all happened. YFS, the schools, and primarily his family failed him. But in particular, his father. The ranch hands gave some chilling testimony as to how he was mistreated.

No, it may not have been the answer for you, but you probably, but for the grace of god, did not walk in his shoes.

He was tried and sentenced in a court of law. As Looking in stated, he did his time. More than likely, he is still doing time within himself. There will be continuing counseling provided to him. And if either of you are sincere in your statements that you will pray for him, maybe somehow, someday he will be able to succeed.

Yes, there were three victims, so pray for their souls as well. What part did they play in leading this boy to snap?

And you are wrong in saying that he would have been tried as an adult. The mitigating circumstances, and the psychiatrists report, would not have had him tried as an adult. It is also possible that California may have been even more lenient in his sentencing.

And as for any location specified, Bavarian Hillbilly is correct. It's irrelevant, since the server chooses the the routing. We don't live in Ruidoso, but that is where our location is stated.
Looking in may very well be your next door neighbor for all you know. And they have also stated they visit often and have friends here.
I would suggest you keep to the topic as they do, considering your ratings did not do much better.

The point is he was tried as a juvenile. if not, he could very easily be a few years into a life sentence. I agree there were other circumstances involved but there is dispute over how accurate those charges are against the DEAD people. And how you so blithely dismiss the fact that he killed his sister also is telling. My opinion is that this is not a small transgression by a too young to know kid. My opinion. Yours seems to be that it is everybodies fault but his. I hope you are right although I doubt you have anymore insight into this than me. With your unwillingness to put any responsibility on him, he has Carte Blanche to do whatever he wants in the future. It can just be the systems fault.
I am somewhat new to these forums so I dont know how the city thing works on the postings. You say they could be my neighbor followed by they visit here a lot. Ok, fine. Whatever it is, they sound like a Californian. So do you.

The victums wern`t around to give their testomony,In Calif the state came down very hard on teenagers during a get tough on crime movement,this was done in the wake of a gang crime wave.I don`t know what I think of this because science tells us that the brain is not really fully developed untill about age 25.So I am torn. BTW what difference doe`s it make where you live?This was a nat.story because of it`s relationship to Sam Donaldson.If you drive around Calif you will see NM plates every direction you look and vice versa.I cant understand this way of thinking.
