I hope Mr. Graham rots under the jail. David would have NEVER done anything to provoke being shot in the chest! All the Grahams are hot headed and ignorant. Hope his character is shown to the grand jury! Hope David's is too!

I think they just have to indict Hershel Graham before they can arrest him. Due to fact David was on Graham's property. Don't worry, it will happen in due time.

SKETTER, what kind of sick human being are you. You make me and the rest of this country sick with your comment. I hope when you have a horrible tragedy in your family, no one is as evil person and you to make one of the sickest comments I've ever heard. You need some serious mental health help. Pitty people like you. And you LOL all you want, people like you, always get is back, remember that, there is a God, remember that as well. You are as evil and mentally distrubed as they come!
For respect of _ David

It seems as those all the "facts" that are coming out about this murder are from the Grahams, and friends...David Andrasik is DEAD, he can't speak about what happened. So, who can speak for him??? The rumors began not even 15 minutes after his death, and with each article, they have changed. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY...DAVID HAD TO BE PROVOKED, AND BLIND-SIDED TO BE MURDERED IN SUCH A VICIOUS WAY!!!! Kind of strange that the KILLER, along with his son (yeah we know about him), and the Grand-father give their statements, lies, their made up comments, and as a murderer, they listen to him. There is never a reason to take another human's life, if you feel threatened, which, there was NEVER ANYTHING TO FEAR ABOUT DAVID, EXCEPT, HE HAD THE LORD ON HIS SIDE, you could have shot the leg, up in the air, to the ground, NOT DIRECTLY INTO A HUMAN'S HEART!!!!!! NEVER!!!!!!!!!! Life is beyond precious, and this sick man, must be so full of hate for his own life, and who he is, that he didn't care to take the life of a great father and person, such as David Andrasik. A PLEA TO THE GRAND JURY....PLEASE FIND HIM GUILTY SO HE HAS TO GO TO TRIAL....IN GOD'S NAME, WE BEG YOU TO LOOK AT THE REAL FACTS...AND LISTEN TO DAVID'S PLEA FOR JUSTICE. HIS FAMILY NEEDS THIS TO EVER BE ABLE TO GO FORWARD...PLEASE,LISTEN TO DAVID'S VOICE TELLING YOU WHAT IS RIGHT. DON'T LET HIM DIE IN VAIN....PLEASE.

First and foremost, I want to give my condolences to the family. I cannot imagine the pain you are going through. I have been praying for you all. I also pray for Herschel. I know him personally, and I can honestly say, that he is not the monster you portray him to be. Herschel had to feel threatened or felt as though his son's life were threatened to have commited this act. Knowing Herschel, I am sure he is consumed with guilt. Standing outside of the moment and putting faces and names of anonymous people in this scenario, I feel if any of us were put into this same situation, not a one of us would have done any differently. If you thought you were about to be harmed or your child was about to be harmed, would you have not done the same thing to protect your family? Step back and really think about this scenario before you are so quick to condemn him. As you have mentioned, no one but those involved truly know what happened, but knowing Herschel, I know he felt it was the only decision he had at the time. Praying for all those involved!!!

I am David's wife AND Hershel Graham had options and shooting my husband in the heart should NEVER have been one of them, he wasn't even armed. He feels NO remorse, he has Christmas lights up while I must decorate David's grave instead. Does Hershel know David had a newborn just 12 days old when he shot him to death? Does he know that he had 3 children, was in college full time and working 3rd shift with all the OT they would give him to better his family? A DOG ran out in front of my husband which caused him to stop in the first place. Perhaps if the town it happened in would UPHOLD the leash law David would still be alive!!

@anonymous, from Booneville, MS , don't you dare say "he is not the monster you portray him to be". Are you in your right mind? HE MURDERED AN INNOCIENT MAN. A MAN WITH A FAMILY WHO ADORED HIM, A FUTURE, PEOPLE WHO LOVED HIM, A MOTHER WHO JUST LOST ANOTHER SON NOT EVEN A YEAR AND A HALF AGO. He shot David Andrasik in the heart, the heart, do you understand that???? He was so full of his own self hatered and anger, he aimed at an innocient mans HEART, and shot, not in the shoulder, in the leg, BUT IN THE HEART...HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING, TAKING HIS OWN AGGRESSION OUT ON SOMEONE HE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW, and DAVID wasn't armed with anything, where does his fear factor come in, when Graham had a gun, and is an ex-professional fighter/boxer, explain that!!!!!! Yeah, we've been gathering our facts, no lies as you seem to claim, FACTS!!!! DO NOT SAY YOU ARE PRAYING FOR THE ANDRASIK FAMILY AND GRAHAM'S IN THE SAME BREATH. NO ONE IN THEIR NORMAL MIND WOULD PRAY FOR A DEVIL, AND THAT'S WHAT HE IS, SO KEEP YOUR SICK OPINION TO YOURSELF. God and the good people of the State of Alabama will do what is right. The people who will be sitting on the Grand Jury will know ALL about the Grahams, and they will put themselves in DAVID'S suffering family's shoes, they will know who DAVID was, and do the right thing and bring down an indictment, because they know the only witness is a liar, and DAVID IS NOT THERE TO SPEAK FOR HIMSELF, REMEMBER HE IS DEAD FROM ONE BULLET TO THE HEART!!! You say you know Graham, did you know Mr. Andrasik??? NO!!!! So,don't make assumptions you know nothing about. He has no remorse, none whatsoever!!!!!! The Andrasik family has God in their lives, and faith can move mountains, it can't bring DAVID, a wonderful, loving man, back to them, all they will have are their precious memories, and photos of him, but justice can be served. And David's family has the utmost faith in the law,and the right kind of justice, they are not animals, they DO NOT take the law into their own hands!!! Graham has no idea, nor does he care about how many lives he actually took the night he PUT A BULLET IN DAVID'S kind and loving heart,no idea at all. But one with no remorse, could care less!!! Right!!!!!

I will not fight with you! I feel a certain way about this situation as do you. But for you to tell me not to pray for someone shows hatred in your heart, and for that, I will pray for you! God Bless!!!

Just a little food for thought!

Ephesians 4:31 ESV
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice

Matthew 5:43-45 ESV
“You have heard that it was said,‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

Matthew 5:21-24 ESV
“You have heard that it was said to those of old,‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says,‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. So if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

Walk a mile in the family who lost David's shoes before you tell how to walk in them.. God understands pain. Yes, He does expect us to forgive others but again He understands what victims of crime go thru. David's wife is widowed at 35 years old with 3 children. Herschel Graham has up Christmas lights!!! Well come January he won't be so festive when he is hopefully indicted for 2nd degree murder and hopefully rots in jail for the rest of his days. Herschel Graham shot a man who was UNARMED!! He should be BEGGING the family to forgive him. I also know for a 100% fact that his son Elijah was ripping up, down road shortly after the shooting. I also know his girlfriend was in the truck with him when the whole thing started, she had a cel phone and INSTEAD of calling the cops if they felt so THREATENED.. she called her daddy.. hmmm, This was a verbal dispute.. read the CASTLE LAW.. it doesn't apply to verbal disputes. It applies to people breaking into homes, or being on your property with intent to do serious bodily harm or to kill. David didn't do either. He was up against a gun, truck and more people. Enjoy Prison Mr. Graham..
Justice for David always

I am beyond tired of hearing people say David was in a rage, acting out.. SO WHAT!!! He was not armed.. He was up against 2-3 people in the home, gun and a truck.. Graham had NO RIGHT to shoot and murder a father of 3, one being a newborn that was only days old when this happened.. anyone in their right mind would see Graham had options and shooting this man should never have been one of them! Call the cops.. quit trying to hide behind a stupid law that only applies to someone being burglarized or truly threatened! This was a senseless MURDER.. before they even think of letting Graham off on self defense I hope they look at the precious family he tore apart. Just look at the photos being posted.. David was a great man with so much potential. His heart so big that despite what Graham did David will never be truly gone! His death has truly changed this town. David has made an impact that few people do. David made mistakes, we all do but David was always the first to admit wrong and try to make ammends to anyone he hurt. He is someone to look up to.
Truth always comes out

I wonder if ANYONE is aware that Herschel Graham made a statement to someone few months back that it would not bother him to shoot someone.. this is not hear-say. This is fact because I spoke to the person he actually said it to. They feared him. I also wonder if people know that Graham was INSIDE his home and came out and shot David Andrasik then left him laying there to die and went inside like a cold hearted sick excuse for a human being. Anyone who could shoot someone and have no remorse deserves to be punished to the FULLEST extent of the law. I hope he never forgets David Andrasik's face. This was a verbal dispute that does NOT apply to hiding behind a castle law. David Andrasik was NOT armed, was not trying to break in on the Grahams, eye witnesses saw the whole thing. This is murder pure and simple. I sure hope the grand jury sees Graham for the cold hearted monster he is and hangs him for leaving a wife widowed and 3 children without a father.. ENJOY PRISON GRAHAM..

Lots of trash talk on here about the Grahams....Let someone come in my yard threaten to to bodily harm to me or my family and I will dod the the same as the Graham's....oh heard Andrasik had been once in Elliot village stalking underage girls...think there is a Police report to support that as well as witness's
Truth always comes out

to Red Bay One..if Andrasik was guilty of that he would be in jail not just a police report done. GET REAL.. he wasn't armed..he did NOT deserve that and the Grahams dogs run loose constant..several neighbors complain and nothing ever done.. Graham is ALIVE...Andrasik is dead.. OH and BTW there was a bloody sheet left in Graham's yard that had apparently been used on Andrasik before he was transported to the hospital.. it was moved and was on the Graham's FRONT PORCH for the whole world to see that drove by..this is FACT because I saw it among others.. THAT IS BEYOND SICK.. what is he bragging about killing a man??? I hope they stick him under a jail cell because he will do it again..
enjoy prison Graham

anybody that would shoot an unarmed man directly in the heart resulting in death causing him to leave behind a family that included small children over a dog is sick & also Graham left Andrasik laying there to die & walked back in his house is twisted sick. Graham is KNOWN to be mental & known for toting a gun. His son who is rumored to have ran over Andrasik's foot should be thrown in jail as well. He is KNOWN troublemaker yet Red Bay one defends the Grahams' and lets also note that Graham hasnt just shot David..he did the same thing to someone years ago..but thankfully that man survived. Graham also bragged to a lady in town that it wouldn't bother him to shoot someone, he is known to tote a pistol in pocket, is ex wrestler/boxer and from what many people have said has mental issues..so before you go defending Graham Red Bay One perhaps you should get your facts straight. And the above is not hearsay, it is 100% accurate and also the bloody sheet on the porch is true as well. Many saw that.. I agree that it appeared he is bragging about his actions.. ENJOY LIFE IN PRISON GRAHAM, I truly hope you are convicted of Murder 1 and get life in jail.
