well guess what? hes out! hes a 34yr. old eddie haskill control freak. its his way or no way! so now we'll just have to wait and see if he strikes again. and he will! why federal charges weren't filed on him is beyond me. but i also understand that that can happen at any given time. some idiot posted his bail. at least some of the children are safe. safe from him, and safe from their loving and protective mother. ha!!! man--- is that last statement a joke! as i hear it, hes been out one day and shes already taken him back. now you tell me-- whats most important to her? her babies or her step brother-lover-husband? does this spell incest? yes indeed! nasty!

Okay, people, his uncle Johnny has been in jail since March so how did he get him out. Besides he doesn't have a pot to piss in much less be able to bail somebody out whose bond was well over $75,000 dollars. So you need to back track and know that it was from his mother's side of the family. Get real! And another thing for sure is that his daddy's side of the family has not heard from him and does not want to hear from him. If you think you know it all guess again.

Okay people get real. Uncle Johnny has been in jail since March and is now in the State Jail in Jacksboro. So how did he get Matt how when he was in jail with Matt. Besides it was Matt's mothers side of the family that got him jail. His daddy's side of the family has not heard from him and does not want anything to do with him after him and his hoodlum buddies tore up his Uncle Johnny's trailer. So what makes you think that we would want to get him out. So keep talking garbage about what you don't know and talk about something you do.

Okay I went to lunch and thought about everything being said. So if you can talk about and smudge the Horton name then why don't we talk about and smudge the Leverett/Moore name. Yes, Danny Leverett married Tamara Moore and they adopted Erica. But you forget that Danny & Tamara were both brought up on drug charges and Danny went and spent alot of time in prison for selling and cooking drugs. Matter of fact, did he not have to have heart surgery because of his drug use and eventually died because of it? So keep talking about Matt and I can keep talking about your side of the family bsm. How do you like them apples?

sounds to me like you are not too awfully found of erica's side of the family, huh? so let me just ask you these simple questions---- how do you know all of this and why was matt's bond #75,000.? wasn't it suppose to be $50,500.'s. could it be that federal charge's were filed on him? they needed to be! also, not true about his father not having anything to do with him. matt's been seen over at his dad'd apartment, along with his wifey. all within the last two week's. and i do know that matt's dad has had quite a few controlled substance and dwi charges on him. along with tamara. and danny leveritt?-----you can't tell me anything that i don't already know. so -- i ask you this-- do you think those innocent children should be given back to matt and erica? on your concious! and last but not least--- how long has matt been doing drug's? answer truthfully--- because i already know the truth.

If you know the truth about all this then there is nothing I can't tell you. I don't know about him seeing his dad but I know the people who have helped him out the most have not heard from him. So what do you think about the fact that he tore up his Uncle Johnny's trailer and will not pay to get it fixed. That's okay we are filing a lawsuit against him to correct this situtation. If you want to talk about the drug situtation his so-called Dad use to blow marijuana smoke in his face when he was nine months old. So I guess it goes back about 33 years. Did you know that? And about the children I pity the foster parents that get them because they are hell on wheels and don't mind any body.

so--- you dont know about matt seeing his dad? but you said his dad hasnt heard from him and doesnt want to. seems your storys arent exactly straight either. plus --- you cant tell me or you simply wont? if its wont-- then that makes a person wonder if you truley know the truth or not! also--- if he did the crime, he should do the time. shoulda left him in jail where he belongs. he will be back with any luck.dont know anything about him tearing up his uncle johnnys trailor! i dont mix with dopers. but from what i've seen of that trailor from the outside--- how can you tell if it was tore up or not! i hope he did it so hopefully, back to jail he goes. dont you know that just because his dad blew marijuana smoke in his face when he was 9mos. old hasnt made him what he is today! thats just an excuse. alot of children in the world have sorry parents, but they don't follow in their footsteps! come on now! don't pity the foster parents that have the children, pity the children. they only act out what they are subjected to and see. they are only little boys. 5-4- and less than 2yrs. you tell me why matt ducted taped the now 4yr. old to a tree naked only for getting into some of his paint. maybe matt should've put the paint out of a childs reach. i could tell you more horror stories, but i doubt it would do any good. and you know--- erica just stood back and let matt tape that child to that tree. that good mama is the one who un-taped him. she's as guilty as matt. she allowed it. my understanding is the children are happier and doing better than they ever have. i think matt and erica should be locked up and the key thrown away for good! one can always hope. have a good day!

you know--- i guess when you hear something you don't want to hear, all thing's change. right? one thing for sure--- i don't say anything, unless i can give the fact's. do you? and once again--- the good mom and her bomb-building fellow were seen together again today. a match made in he----! make's you wonder why ERO's are even gotten. maybe we'll just have to ask that question to the right person.

Well, if you have seen him everywhere from here to half-way to Georgia? Then why does he keep going by his Uncle Johnny's and messing with all the gas stealing. I guess he has to make money somehow or she would put him back him back in jail. And the question you asked the other day was about how long has he been doing drugs? Well I guess if you parents ignited the situtation at the age of 9 mos. then that would be about right? And the only reason he see's his dad well because he is married to her mother and she is going to see her mother (sorry as she is) no matter what? Huh! And I hope that somebody does takes the children permanently and never let them know who they really are then maybe they will turn out to be somebody important someday. And be-bop if you don't think that Matt and his hoodlum friends did what they did to Johnny's trailer then we can meet and I will show you exactly what they did? It's your call?

i've only seen him in cleburne and a few other places. don't know anything about half way to georgia. do know he was out at her trailor in rio yesterday though. you know the one on 1204? saw them both together. you see--- you seem to get really upset. let's get something straight right now. i am NOT a fan of her or her mom. actually i tend to agree with you. i know what they are. just as i also know what matt is. and as i said before, what he is now, is of his on making. not what happened to him when he was a child. surely even you can understand that. i don't know anything about the gas-stealing, but i do know he can apply for a decent job. there's always taco-bell, mac donalds, and etc. if he's stealing gas, you should call the law on him, and not allow that. do you know she has an ERO on him. you could turn her in for letting him come back around her. yes mam. she is breaking the law. you do realize, he wouldn't be hanging around her if he really didn't want to. come on now! and one of his so-called friend's says he's staying with her all the time, not just seeing her at her so-called mom's. also- thank you so much for what you said about the baby's. they DO deserve much better. you know?--- it should be all about the baby's. they do deserve a better home and family. maybe if everyone banded together, that could be made possible. what do you think? best regards.

I just said WHEN, WHY,& BEFORE OR AFTER he got out of jail? lordy, give me a break. did ya not read the SYMPATHYS FOR YA sentence? man, when a dudes tripping, guess he is capable of anyhing. If I was married to that nasty broad, I'd dump her fat ass. all I ever seen her do is scream filth, hit, and bitch about money. been told shes welfare trash like her mom. aint she got two kids by another dude, and one by matt? boy, that first dude must have been smart enough to dump the sorry chick. did ya call tha cops on matt for trashing the trailor? still aint to late to.
