<quoted text> lets make this correct .he got two years in a juvenile facility. That's far from prison
he got 2 years DOC (dept of corrections) not 2 years DJJ (dept of juvenile justice). please get your facts correct. there is a difference between the two. being sentenced to any DOC time means that he will go to prison. not a juvenile detention center which would be DJJ>

Thank you for setting us straight.But as we sat in that court room we heard the judge say it would be jdf.I guess we aren't perfect like who ever you are.WHO ARE YOU BY THE WAY WHY ARE YOU SO AFRAID TO SAY WHO YOU ARE.
I sat in that court room and listen to people lie and judge us quote from the bible but they left out the part about thy shall not kill and that Drukeness is a sin.
What point are you trying to prove.so we are not perfect,But we didn't kill any one.I guess because we stood up for my dead son and didn't sell him out for money we are the bad people.Well at least I'm not afraid to tell you who I am.
The first post was just a few days after the trail we were still trying to understand everything that happen.But later on we knew what you are telling us now so don't act like we are stupid.After all we do know how to us a computer.
I hope you never have to go through what we have.If you ever do I would like to hear from you then.But for your sake I hope that never happens.
Yeah it's sad a 21 year old had to go to prison. I can relate to that.But his family can see him.Hear his voice and tell him they love him.I can't do that.I miss my son minute every second of every day.That's what that is what a 21 year old did to us.We have not been shown any compassion at all from you people we have been talked about and treated like we are the ones that did wrong. And we are the loser in it all.So please until you are not afraid to show your self don't talk to us or about us.Leave my children alone for they are very angry and hurt and things you say only fuel that flame.So if there is any decency IN YOU PLEASE JUST LEAVE US ALONE.Any time you want to have a decent conversation I will be glad to.So until then please just let us try to heal and maybe have some kind of life.
Sincerly

Ms. Adams-Taylor, The court info that was posted was by no means intended to attack you. I'm sorry you feel the way. That's understandable considering the trauma you and your family have endured. There were several posts inquiring on the results of the sentencing, so my intention was to provide that information. It also was my first and only posting besides this one.

Thank you for the info.Sorry to come off that way but if you have read some of these post you can see why I feel the way I do.But it would be nice sometimes to know who people are that post these things.I understand some of them not wanting anyone to know who the are. Thanks again! I welcome any info.that is sincere.

Well I understand he has been released. Guess his family will throw a great homecoming party for him. Probably have a few drinks to celebrate. Wonder who his next victim will be?
Lucas' son Peyton and sister Emilee would love to have a homecoming party for their Daddy but that will never happen. The other 3 children left without a parent would love to throw a party for their Mom.
But that will never happen either.
I know God has a plan in this and it is hard for us who watch the families suffer to understand it.
I truly hope that this short term he served has opened his eyes. He should have to look in the faces of those children everyday. Brandon you will never understand how you have impacted the lives of these innocent children. Peyton Taylors Great Grandmother Barbara Reeves,

I realize I'm about 4yrs late. If I may share several observations: 1) My most sincere condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of all affected by this horrible tragedy. 2) To those offering a faith-centered (presumably God in Christ) perspective, may I encourage you to remember compassion at such a time as this? Hurting people need to know you care, not what you know. 3) The young man who committed these acts needs to turn to God and received Jesus Christ as personal Savior...just like everyone reading this needs to. He took life, and should pay the consequences. Everyone is hurting here - definitely not in the same way or degree, but still hurting. 4)God does have a plan. It's
found in His Word, which reveals His love in Christ.

Only those who have come to the Father through the Son are on praying ground with God (John 14:6). For those who know God the Father and God the Son, may I exhort you to pray for those affected?

Thank you,

jackie
