mr flaming was only doing his job, we dont have all the facts yet so just because yu didnt like his attitude doesnt make him guilty, lets wait for all the evidence. remember he was after a wanted man in the first place.

I agree, you have to have a "butt head" attitude to do that type of work. I just wish the story had included the date the incident occurred. I just saw Flaming at the post office 3-days ago.

that was 3 days ago you claim ? if im not mistaken plainview tx, is only about a 12 pack away, so im sure this could have happen yesterday, but then again most of the news the current argus prints is sometimes 4 to 7 days old.like when the kids broke into gizmos and gadgets i heard it on my scanner around 2 am monday morning and it wasnt till fridays paper that it was printed.nothing also has been said about the 6 yr old kid that got run over monday on 7th st.and the person that did it made a hit and run.

This is the United States of America and you are entitled to all the justice you can afford. We turned down his adverising because he is a creep. Kill a man over a $10 warrant. His years of bullying are over.

If many residents knew about this guy, why haven't you got together to drum him out of town? He can't be that tough.

This is the point where you need to shut your idiotic trap! That whacked out idiot pulled a gun on a girl that EMS was trying to get into an ambulance a couple of years ago and she was refusing to go, claiming he had the power to arrest her and crap like that. Well when he did that, we (bystanders) took off and EMS called for an officer to remove him from the scene. The facts are that he is certifiably tutti frutti and now someone is dead because bail bondsmen hire losers and weirdos. I hope they indict the company he works for too!

It happened on Tuesday. The victim was unarmed, and running away from Mr. Flaming when Mr. Flaming fired approximately ten shots at Mr. Graves, who was hit by one bullet, which killed him. Oh yeah, and for those of you here in Carlsbad that know Jarrod, the man that was helping him when the murder occurred was Morgan Moore. Go figure.

This moron watched one too many episodes of Dog the Bounty Hunter. From the sound of it,this guy is out there,like Pluto. And the last thing you wanna do is commit murder in Texas. Unlike New Mexico, they have real politicians that make real laws for high crimes.
Whatever
