I read they are trying to give Garrett the death penalty,i think life in prison with no parole, death sentence is the easy way out and that should go for the other two that did the other murders, they both intented to do their crime. What a same someone can kill another human being, i just don.t get this at all happens every day some where.

Look how many people talk shit behind peoples back on here then you see them uptown talking to each other the next day. or they bar hop with them. Sad, Sad, Sad

could someone please explain to me,how fucking stupid one would have to be to kill someone for really no reason,knowing they will now spend the rest of their days in the big house.and not even try to get away with it?Do they think everyone will think what a big man he was?Dont they realize in ten years no one will care?But they will still be bubbas lil bitch?i mean stewie there in sheldon,did he really think no one would finger him?Or hite did he think he was gonna go down as a martyr,for cowardly shooting a guy in cold blood.or tough guy badenhorst who decided instead of trying to support himself decided to kill the man who was supporting his ass,because he was too hard headed to follow the mans rules.All three of these guys were probably never taught anything by their parents,especially common sense.And they all thought someone owed them something.

Brian had no common sense. He was belittled his whole life and probably not told very often that he was loved by anyone. I don't think anyone helped him. he had so much rage in him and he had the whole bike ride over here from Watseka to think about when and how he would do this horrible crime.
Trisha knows exactly what happened. If someone helped brian they would have been able to put Robbie in the trunk, if that was what Brian wanted to do. Anyone that knows Brian knows he was a little scrawny guy that didnt weigh much more than a peanut . No, I don't believe that he had help. I hope it all comes out and he rots in Hell. I loved him but this was something I can't forgive.

i live like 20 minutes away from the people you are all talking about. and i think its stupid for people to act this way, but around here its small towns and no brains. think god im not actually from around here. so i cant be counted for being a small town hick or a small town gangster as they think and its dumb. they walk around here like they live in chi town or some other real big city but really its 5 block that way and 5 blocks the other, and they have stupid gangs that break windows key cars but never actually do anything other then yell at each other from across the street or tell that person to tell that person bull crap. i hope that these people get what they brought on them selves and i hope they live life in a dark cold hell haunt with the fact that no one cares about them.

Shit talking any small town in Iroq. County don't help nothing. Each community has issues and each community has had it's fair share of crimes. Damn Gilman has had a few child molesters picked up there and I am not saying murder ain't bad, but child molestation is down right wrong and the men that were caught doing it shot be treated they committed murder because they have ruined these childrens lives forever!!!! So sweetheart Gilman is no better than Watseka, Sheldon, Stockland, Milford or any other small community in the world.

I don't think it is necessarily a matter of stupidity. I think it is a lack of judgment at the time it happens. If you know anything about mental illness, you would understand that a person can be technically sane, yet still have impaired judgment. It is just like being drunk, you can be sane, but impaired and irrational. If you research bipolar online, you will see that one of the biggest triggers is STRESS. When someone gets that stressed out they can become psychotic and kill. Not only kill, but rationalize it to themselves as right or necessary. It doesn't make them right or even excuse their behavior. They should still be accountable, but I think it is ignorant to call peole stupid because you are judging them when you clearly have no knowledge or understanding of how a person's brain can work. I know we all say we would never kill, but how many people on here threaten those who have committed these crimes. You just never know.

I can only say that Sheldon is not exactly a town in Iroquois County anyone can be proud of. Most of the kids that live there are in trouble....there are drugs and troubles there too. If you are so proud, how about trying to clean it up a bit!!!!

No these guys werent stupid,they were all geniuses.None of them worked or payed bills,what do you suppose was stressing them out?They all committed crimes that no one else was even a suspect,and did it in cold blood.Hite called for the gun,while at the bar,he didnt snap.Badenhorst,now that idiot could be crazy,but my guess is if his gramps had been six-foot eight and 300 pounds and in good shape,he doesnt snap.And Garrett,he rode all the way from watseka on his bike to sheldon,seven-miles,and just snapped when he got there.Ill bet if someone that lived there had a gun he doesnt snap so hard either.You can make excuses for these freaks all youd like,but what it comes down to,,,,is these 3 jokers were bordering on retarded,and ill bet an iq test would prove me correct.
