What is there to know? He was on parole. He was a parole violator. He was in a stolen vehicle. He ran from the police. HE KILLED SOMEONE... HE KILLED SOMEONE.. HE KILLED SOMEONE. HE KILLED SOMEONE. He is a murderer and his family and friends are probably losers just like him. I am sure his family made excuses for his behavior and I am sure his friends were just like him because birds of a feather flock together. I hope he is NEVER released from prison. He is a total piece of scum who MURDERED SOMEONE. HE KILLED SOMEONE. HE TOOK SOMEONE AWAY FROM THEIR FAMILY. HOW WOULD YOU FEEL??? You want me to feel sorry for him and his family. He gets to live!!!!!! The family that lost the victim will NEVER see their loved one again.

You ought to be ashamed of yourself trying to defend him. He is absolutely worthless and he preyed on people. How many times had he been to prison huh? You know this was not his first time. And you want me to be concerned about the feelings of his family and friends. PUHLEEZE!!!!!!!!! I am concerned with the family and friends of the victim. Imagine the hole he has left in their lives. He was probably someone's father, someone's grandfather, someone's husband, someone's friend. He had NO RIGHT to take them away. Why? Because he was a selfish predator who wanted to steal a BMW. He stole a car and fled from the police when they tried to stop him. BECAUSE OF THIS SOMEONE LOST THEIR LIFE. He deserves to be behind bars because he preys on society. He was given a change by being granted parole and he still committed a crime. You know that what says to me. It says " I DONT WANT TO LIVE IN THE WORLD AND ABIDE BY THE LAW". It says I WANT TO STEAL FROM PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY WORK FOR A LIVING. I WANT TO TAKE TAKE TAKE TAKE. Whether it is someone's possession or even worse THEIR LIVES. He does not deserve to be part of society because he HARMS society. QUIT MAKING EXCUSES FOR HIM.... HE IS A CRIMINAL AND A MURDERER. God will forgive him, but he is not fit to be in the community. He needs to be locked away.

this is a family member of his. While we are greatly disappointed in him and filled with sorrow for the victim and the victim's family we are also now a broken family at this point. This is not a plea for your sympathy just an explanation of how people do not need to be cruel and should consider that maybe they should refraine from their crude opinion when they do not have involvment in the situation. While he has made poor choices and yes this was the poorest of them all his family does not condone nor copy these choices. We are not all in your words "losers" and really as saddened as we are, our hearts do go out to thoose who were victimized here. please do not however make assumptions and say things that one do not involve your opinions of him but instead the person whos comment you replied to was his baby sister, Maybe next time before you start replying with hurtful remarks consider the whole situation and try not to come across so harshly we as i said do not condone any of this and did not teach that these types of things are okay, however he is family and this type of situation does hurt everyone

I feel empathy for his little sister and I pray she does not follow the same path. However this is topix and this is a comments section. And I am doing just that; making a comment. Whether you agree or disagree is not my concern. I am also not concerned with whether you share the same DNA as this person. This was not a simple mistake. It wasn't a case of joyriding gone wrong. This person was a parolee which means, if I am mistaken, he has been to prison. If he has been to prison then I am led to believe that he has a criminal history and if he has a criminal history then it leads me to believe that this is not his first rodeo. You get where I'm going here.... I think that it is time that parents of children who are for lack of better verbage fuck up, should get very honest with themselves and call a spade a spade. Your relative was a convict who by all accounts has zero respect for the law. Do I question his upbringing? Yes I do. Do I question whether or not you possibly enabled him? ABSOLUTELY. You are more concerned with the fact that I am making "rude comments" in a public forum, than you are with the fact that your relative is a habitual criminal who took away something he had NO RIGHT TO TAKE despite the fact he had been given chances to turn his life around. Please don't try to censor my or anyone else's opinion because it is useless. Trust and believe if it were your relative murdered senselessly you would have a completely different opinion. If his baby sister doesn't like the commentary here, then censor her internet use. In the meantime, when senseless acts of violence like this occur, I will be exercising my right as a citizen of this "free" nation to be vocal about it.

Just so all of you know Brett comes from a good family, his family are lawers his grandfather is a retired superior court judge Judge D. Sterry Fagan look him up you ignorant fools. Im not saying its ok what Brett did because its not at all. And I am very sorry for the innocent ones who died and got hurt. "KNOW THAT" And Bretts mother is a nurse that has been SAVING lives for years, and she has been crying all day long to me talking about the innocent ones who were hurt because of her child and she is ashamed, but the truth is she was a very good role model single mother hard worker who did everything she possibly could to do whats best for her family...Point is Brett messed up really bad and made a fatal mistake which was caused by an accident which makes him an idiot NOT a murderer...So why keep yappin about my brother online like a bunch of ignorant pissed off lames that arent gonna do anything about it anyways shut your mouths and keep my brother and my families name out of your mouth...if you got something to say from here on then why not say it to our or better yet MY FACE...Im angry with Brett too but situation doesnt need to get worse by all the drama spreading online...Like I said already This is Bretts brother Jeff and quit talking trash on my family because you dont know my family period...get a life of your own, too many already have been ruined by this, why try to ruin more??? Does it make it any better??? NO it doesnt ignorance is the cause of this. So think twice when you are being ignorant yourself...:(

.So why keep yappin about my brother online like a bunch of ignorant pissed off lames that arent gonna do anything about it anyways shut your mouths and keep my brother and my families name out of your mouth...if you got something to say from here on then why not say it to our or better yet MY FACE
^^^^^^^^^^
This is a WONDERFUL response. And it provides me with a lot of clarity as to why your brother was a parolee. You do know that it is impossible for people to not give an opinion. Do you really think you can control that? Challenging someone to "say it to your face" is just foolish and does not reflect positively on you or your family. I do have an iota of empathy for his family, however I am sure it can be agreed upon that he does not need to be allowed in the free world. If justice is to be served he will undoubtedly return to prison. For how long is a matter left to the courts. Your brother is a prime example of how there is no such thing as "a little crime". His act of theft led to a death. Had he not stolen, he would not have killed. It is very unfortunate that you too will have to suffer a loss, but as I have stated before, your brother will live. Hopefully he will live locked away, but he will live. You can write him and/or visit him. The victim's family will have him no more. They will visit a tombstone and their 4th of July will be marked with sadness and not pride for the Independence of this country.

Getting angry at me or other posters, does not make the situation change. Who would you be angry at if your brother were the one that died and not the victim? Who would you blame then? The police that were doing their job. Or your brother who committed the crime?

What makes me incensed about this whole situation is the fact that your brother was on parole meaning he was given yet another opportunity to start over`. He had a chance to turn his life around for the better. Sure it would have been a little hard with a felony conviction and all, but it wouldn't be impossible. When a person forgoes opportunities like this (being on parole), then it is reasonable to say that they can no longer be in the free world because they will cause harm to others.I apologize for being harsh with my commentary but I still stand behind my words. I am sure his mother worked hard and I know she had no intentions for him to take this path. But I know this is not his first brush with the law. Her son, your brother is a very selfish individual who cared not for other people, his family but only himself. I hope that you, or your other siblings do not follow his path. You have a right to be disappointed in him, but anger, tears and hurt belong only to the victim and his family.
That is all!

such a p.o.s. scumbag loser. he's on parole and goes right back to committing crimes. we dont need any individuals like this in society. lock him up like an animal and keep him in his cage. "he's an idiot not a murderer" is the most ridiculous thing i've ever read. tell that to the victim's family.

This is the problem with parole. Inmates will lie, and do anything to get out knowing they have NO intention of turning around their lives. The parole board and judges who let these people out should be held accountable for the crimes these parolees commit once let out. Most of these criminals have NO REMORSE for their crime, only remorse they have is that they got caught..I hope this guy never sees freedom again, but given our judicial system,crowded prisons, the ACLU, sympathetic judges and jury members, he'll do a little time and be out again...what a joke our judicial system has become..

No one cares how great his family. He deserves no pity from the general public. You can feel sorry for him all you want. We have every right to hate him and his actions. He is a drain on society and should be put down like with rabies. Let me guess do you feel sorry for Charles Manson, how about the Bundy, maybe Hitler...no maybe Osama Bin Laden. They all had parents too. Screw Fagen, may he sit in a jail cell for the rest of his life. I hope he is rape daily in prison too. There is my pity for him.

You people are a real piece of work there is no way of defending him, He is an adult and knew what he was doing.He was in a stolen car and decided to run and it ended u killing a innocent Man and left a family without a father and son.That is a big difference between your family member and thiers you get to see yours they don't get to see thiers.

Loser Hater is right. Rep is out of his or her mind. I have neither sympathy nor compassion for the man who did this. I drove by the intersection yesterday soon after it happened. Then the helecopters flew over and I knew someone had died. When I read the news later I was so angry that it wasn't a simple accident and the story was enraging. I'm sorry for his family that he was ever born. I'm sorry for his "single mother" that she didn't raise a better kid. But with 40% of kids being born out of wedlock these days, more and more kids will have absent parents that are working so hard to "provide" but won't have time to provide what they really need...guidance, direction, and discipline. I hope this loser, and I mean LOSER, goes to prison for at least 25 years.

Jeff/"rep" of Van Nuys, why is it so important that your family's composed of high-profile lawyers & judges? And why does that make us "ignorant fools"? Are you inferring there have been EARLIER incidents with your brother that were swept between the cracks because of some sort of "old boy's network"(if you've been reading the news we've been getting a lot of THAT around here lately)? Does the pain of the family of Bill Blanchard matter(or even the poor guy who had his BMW stolen)? Say his name out loud. Write it on a piece of paper & tape it to your mom's fridge. The guy had his own life, plans, family, friends-i dunno if you're a "swing kid" or you'd know Bill even lead his own big band, played for appreciative crowds-& retirement homes.
http://harmonysisters.net
Please don't try & tell this board the violent taking of his life is trumped by that of a repeat offender who might share your name. How are you able to declare outright that this was a "mistake" or an "accident"(sounds pretty damn purposeful to me)-OR that Brett's actions make him an "idiot" & not a "murderer". Are you God-or "D. Sterry Fagan"? My mom was a nurse too, no matter how many lives SHE saved she never got some sort of "Subway Club Card" that allowed her children to murder in a melee like in "Grand Theft Auto". When you say the posters here "arent gonna do anything about it anyways shut your mouths and keep my brother and my families name out of your mouth". Jeff, my man, i doubt you're in the family business because that does NOT sound like a lawyer wrote that. And why is it a greater threat if we say these comments to your face? Are you threatening Benson&Baseline violence upon random strangers via the Internet(anybody who's allegedly a lawyer's offspring would realize "Incitement To Fight" is actually illegal in the State Of California) I'm sorry your "baby sister" is offended by the comments here, I promise you those of Bill Blanchard feel far worse. P.S. Lawyer Boy, Let me let you in on one last secret about the Topix board; it's roughly made up of the Jury Pool-you know "the community". Their 2 Cents matter. You impanel them, you've got 24 cents right there. They'll come here-no matter what the judge tells them about "outside sources" all lawyers know juries find that rule impossible in the Internet era. They'll read your comments & believe this is the word from within the defendant's camp; Inconsideration to the real victims. Disdain for authority, Special Privileges over rule of law. Random violent threats. Then it won't matter then how nicely you've cleaned Brett up. Good goin', Johnny Cochran!

Thank you Max for that response. I hope I'm chosen for the jury. My heart is broken and I didn't even know the man. Seeing his website is so sad as we now know he won't be performing on July 11th. My grandmother used to live at the Claremont Manor before she died...surely he played for her and brought her joy. I'm sure he was a very good man and is now in heaven with the angels!
