This is aterrible thing to do to this man like this does he not have the poise to be a good boy and not a heathen,he deserves to be under the jail and not see light of day again, for a man that is in his last days that wouldn't be right. We are not even safe in our homes anymore, well i do say this yes he is in a better place with nothing else to worry about but i tell you what let somebody try that ish and i be damn they will get some rounds up in their azz. But you know what its not his fault, its the parents, where were they when he was doing this, he should have been home with his parent or parents, it's not fair for a man suffering like this, and from when I used to see him in church he was always nice and a gentleman, praise him for he is a hero.

You can not put plame on the parents.Kids do what they want.They do not listen to athority any more.It's a horrible thing that has happen.It has been a shock to the community.No one should have to endure what this man has.This boy will have to pay for what he has done and his parents will be there and suffer with him too.No one wins here.
