This is SO ridiculous.!! The victim TRUSTED the person whom he was staying with, and was treated like that?! And it caused him to miss out n schooling, too.! Thats like signing up to host a foriegn exchange student and then beating & robbing them...I know the world is full of bad people, but come on now, have we NO DECENCY left?!

Sad, truley sad, and once again, just looks bad on this area, which is already judged far to much...

Haley Burdette says snitches get stitches? She should be charged with making threats. She must be living in the dark if she thinks her criminal boyfriend Travis Wickline is innocent. Travis Wickline beat Mr. Craig to a pulp! He deserves his punishment. The article states that Mr. Wickline was sentenced to 10 years. His parole hearing is projected for 2013 with a release date of 2015. Mr. Wickline could be released in 2 years. Now that is disturbing.
Travis Goodwin was charged with assult. The article states he didn't demand the money. He was sent to 60 days in jail? As for Justin Carpenter and Lannie Earl Shaffer they accepted the plea deal. Which means that you cooperate with the state attorney. Its a deal. Those two should have been charged with conspiracy. Since they were the ones who planned the robbery. The whole truth to the story isn't in the article. Ben Craig and Niko Pilcher were making a delivery in WV. A delivery of not so good "goods". Carpenters house is known for it. All were involved in sin. Mr. Craig didn't deserve the beating but he wasn't truthful about why he was traveling in WV or about some of the facts of what happened. All involved deserves the punishment received.

If Pilcher and Craig were delivering "goods" how come no "goods" were found at the trailer or the car??? Did you read the article...they were just passing through the pathetic state of WV. If Pilcher was truly Ben's friend, he would have never left him alone with Wicks and TRG. Mr. Craig did not deserve to be jumped while sleeping on a couch-just goes to show that they didn't have the balls to attack him when he was awake.
