I am sure not going to skate around the truth with this situation....
THESE ARE FACTS, THAT WE ALL KNOW FOR SURE;

911 was called on october 15, 2008, requesting police action and the need for IMMEDIATE AID....

*** EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW OR CONCLUDE THAT TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE IN HANDLING GUNSHOT WOUNDS, AND OTHER LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCIES ******

When LAW ENFORCEMENT arrived HE ABSOLUTELY HAD A DUTY TO PROTECT OTHERS AND PRESERVE EVIDENCE... LAW ENFORCEMENT had a duty to SECURE THE SCENE AND GIVE AN "ALL CLEAR" FOR THE MEDICS TO RENDER FIRST AID TO VICTIMS!!!!!!!!!!

EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES:
1) TO PREVENT HARM TO OTHERS
2) TO PREVENT THE DESTRUCTION OF EVIDENCE.
3) TO RENDER AID TO A PERSON IN NEED OF IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE!

Officers are trained not to hesitate to act reasonably to preserve life and protect others in potentially dangerous situations....(I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT)

there were plenty of reasons for immediate need to act!!

THERE IS WITHOUT A DOUBT IN MY MIND A CASE OF DEPRIVATION OF PEOPLE'S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS AND PROTECTION THAT IS AFFORDED TO THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA...

It's as obvious and anything I have ever seen in my life that an officer, WITNESSING EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES, STOOD BY AND WAITED ON BACKUP BECAUSE HE WAS SCARED AND OBVIOUSLY NOT SO SURE OF HIS TRAINING WITH THE WEAPONS ON HIS DUTY BELT OR POSSIBLY EVEN A SHOT GUN IN HIS PATROL CAR.....

WELL, SINCE YOU DIDN'T YOUR JOB AND ONLY STOOD BY TO WITNESS APPROXIMATELY 45 MINUTES OF EVENTS THAT NIGHT, MAYBE WE CAN USE YOUR STATEMENTS IF YOU ALL WOULD EVER GIVE ONE INSTEAD OF TELLING PEOPLE THAT ASK YOU,
" THAT IT'S A TRAGEDY FOR ALL INVOLVED"....
WELL, WE ALL KNOW THAT ALREADY!!

NOW TELL US WHAT HAPPENED, AND WHAT YOU WITNESSED AS YOU WERE ALLOWING THE DESTRUCTION OF EVIDENCE AND INJURY TO PERSONS AND NOT PROVIDING IMMEDIATE AID TO YET ANOTHER PERSON......(WHILE YOU WERE WAITING ON BACK UP)????????

AND THERE IS NOT A PERSON STUPID ENOUGH AND ILLITERATE ENOUGH TO ATTACK THESE FACTS

BECAUSE IF THERE IS, I'LL BE YOUR HUCKLEBERRY!!

WAKE UP PEOPLE, STOP BEGGING FOR INFORMATION THAT IS AFFORDED US IN OUR RIGHTS!!
THE SHERIFF'S DEPT. IS AN ARM OF THE GOVERNMENT AND THE GOVERNMENT'S BUSINESS IS OUR BUSINESS....

DEMAND YOUR RIGHTS AS I AM DOING AND DO NOT STOP PURSUING EVERY AVENUE TO OBTAIN JUSTICE FOR YOUR LOVED ONE(S)..

EVERYONE THAT RESPONDED TO BRASFIELD LOOP ON OCT.15, 2008 HAD A DUTY.... IF YOU PERFORMED YOUR DUTY, I GIVE YOU A PAT ON THE BACK, FOR DOING WHAT YOU CHOSE, SOME SWORE TO DO AND SOME GET PAID TO DO....
IF YOU ARE SCARED AND NOT TRAINED, FIND ANOTHER JOB!!! THAT'S YOUR OPTIONS...... EACH WILL ANSWER TO THEIR ACTIONS AND LACK OF ACTIONS !!!!!

RESPONSE TIME OF THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT IS NOT MY COMPLAINT.... TIED UP ON ANOTHER CALL IS LEGIT!! IF YALL WANT MORE OFFICERS TALK TO SOMEONE IN JACKSON!! BUT US HAVING CAPABLE OFFICERS SHOULD BE AN ABSOLUTE....

First of all I am not going to use a coverup name I am a BIG girl, and I do not care who hears or sees what I have to say. It's the truth. Everyone is always talking about honesty.. so here we go..
**DEBBIE TAYLOR: Amanda lived with us(the Youngs) for 2 years, and our family loved her and took her in when you plainly kicked her out of your house. I was there, and had to help move Amanda's things. You also told her "DO NOT call or text me for anything." Casey and Amanda loved each other more than anything in this world, and Amanda was not abused! So HOW WOULD YOU KNOW DEBBIE?? WERE YOU HERE??(sound familar) Every couple has ups and downs over little stuff. It's sad to see you trying to block out all the hurtful things you did to her. Living in guilt? Maybe! Amanda was so happy here. The whole family stayed up late talking, watching movies, playing dominos, go out to eat, etc. Daddy(Jimmy Doyle Young Jr.) loved Amanda Suggs as his own daughter, and he would have done anything in this world for her just as he would for his own children. It's also sad to know that you missed out on the last 2 years of her life. You of all people should know about making people feel bad huh? Then you try to make people feel sorry for you by posting HORRIBLE things on facebook ALL the time getting people involved in things they know nothing about. I(Chasity Young) asked you over and over to please STOP, and what did you do kept on talking BAD about Casey and My Family. All you had to answer for yourself was I'm an adult I do as I please! And YOUR brother shot and killed my daughter.. YOU can't keep hiding from that! Really Debbie some role model you are to kids I was 15!!!!!! Even though I was 15 I still had sense enough to know when enough was enough. All you EVER did was run Casey in the ground. It's like you going to Casey's grave, and saying you FINALLY got to have your heart to heart with him, and talking bad about everything at his grave site. I have been to Amanda's grave again and again because I LOVE AND MISS HER.. not to CURSE her/him out. You go out of Respect! And you talk about "Mad at law enforcement because they had legal obligations to you about Casey??! Because you did not even know he was still alive until Friday after someone told you he had passed.." NO ma'am NO one had obligations to you about a NON RELATIVE! You say you did not know, yet TJ Blaylock AND Larkin Lardieth BOTH called me while we were at the ER. Didn't you say Debbie "Honesty always wins." Well it's EASY for me(Chasity Young) to be honest because I have nothing to hide.

**SICK OF THESE PEOPLE: Kimberly A. Carter Young?? A loving "Stepmother" to 3 children?! That's a JOKE! What ya'll forgot to mention was Casey, Jimmy, Elaney, and myself(Chasity Young) were all victims of Kimbery Young's abuse. Let's start with kids laying in the floor watching television, and Kimberly walking through kicking us. Or wetting the bed, and being MADE to stand in a five gallon bucket full of ICE cold water in the WINTER. Or being locked out of the house and poolhouse during a storm. Not to mention Elaney in and out of Foster Care because Kimberly Young was an unfit mother and in and out of jail. After Kimberly Young took her from The Young Family. Kimberly Young's mother also abused Elaney so the school called CPS where Elaney was again a ward of the state. Elaney Young was living with The Young Family, and was very happy and made amazing grades in school, but Christmas time come around and Kimberly Young wanted to visit her daughter. After thinking it over Jimmy Doyle Young Jr. met Kimberly Young at Wal-mart by Barnes Crossing on December 24,2006 where Kimberly said she was going to take her to supper and bring her back home! She never come back.. Kidnapping?! I think so! Shortly after Elaney was back in Foster care located in Tennessee she kept in contact with the Youngs by calling. We were in the process of getting Elaney back when Casey Young got killed, nobody told Elaney her brother was killed in a "car accident" It was plainly said he was killed in an ACCIDENT. What kind of parent tells their 12 year old daughter details to something like that overthe phone??! Now she is back with Kimberly Young as far as we know. Elaney Young contacted me on Myspace on Feburary 16,2009 just to talk about girl stuff. Then on May 24, 2009 She sent me another message on Myspace saying "No one in Mississippi can call me I'm lucky I can use my computer that is the only contact I have with ya'll. My mom(Kimberly Young) said when she's done with me Daddy won't legally be my dad anymore! ok bye sis I love you write back."
*You talk about the Youngs having NO Morals, NO Heart, NO regards for the law, and Sociopaths.. People that have to down others and espically people that have passed away is pathetic.. that means YOU HAVE NO MORALS, NO HEART for yourself or anybody else. If your going to talk about telling the truth TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH! If your not a part of this family then do NOT worry about our obituaries it's none of your concern.. Children of abusers do not become abusers espically when there is NOT an abuser in family besides the SO CALLED WONDERFUL STEPMOTHER!

KC Young killed himself after killing my best friend. So do I get the money now for telling you something that you already know the answer to. Nobody is to blame for this but KC's crazy ass. Amanda had her whole life ahead of her and now look she is not here and her daughter will never know her mom because he was too controlling and couldnt handle her not wanting to be with him. The person who dropped Kc off that night deserves to be in jail and I hope you go to hell because you knew what he was going to do and it is YOUR fault that they are both gone!!!!!!
**If your so sure of what happened.. you just had to be there that night!! Casey had his whole life ahead of him to and now lookhe is NOT here! You have said HORRIBLE things I'm not a perfect christian, but last time I checked God said treat others like you want to be treated. and your bestfriend?? Try you brother and might as well be sister in the same day!! That's whats wrong with the world these days selfish and inconsiderate people! If I recall correctly your not the great person you make out to be posting on a dead persons myspace saying, "I WILL NEVER KNOW WHY YOU KILLED AMANDA, BUT YOU DESSERVE WHAT YOU GOT. YOU KILLED MY BESTFRIEND AND SISTER! THANKS ALOT FOR TAKING HER AWAY!" I mean WHO DOES THAT????? That is sickening.

Wow!! I Applaud "sick of these people". I had heard things over this past year about them and how Casey had a rough life. I so hate that Amanda ever met him. However she did and she loved him very much. But she loved her baby girl more and when this became an issue, Casey just couldnt deal with it. Jealousy is an awful thing. Amanda was a strong willed person that would not back down. She didnt want to be hurt anymore and just wanted to be with her baby. Casey was so mad at her that day because she had kept her little girl too long. Over an hour he said. What??
He shot her in the BACK of her head. All he had to do was walk away when she was walking away. Or he couldve just never come over there to start with. She told him no but he come anyways.
I spoke with her that day when she come to my house to get her baby. She just wanted to spend time with her family.
Statistics show that when you leave an abuser is when they snap. Well he snapped alright.
Our Lord God will take care of our Amanda. HE will take care of us as we grieve. And HE will take care of Caseys family if they call upon Him!! But we will all meet our judgement in time.
Day by Day .... Our family will survive this by Gods Grace.
Thanks to those who have prayed sincerely for us and our precious Angel. Please remember her baby girl in your prayers as well.
**Jealousy?? IT WAS ANOTHER MAN'S BABY!! Amanda did not want to keep Jaiden the whole entire time she was pregnant..Everybody was saying she was leaving and this and that.. Where was she going?? Because ALL her things were still at the Youngs house!!! casey did not hurt Amanda. They loved each other and it was THEIR life! Noone could stop them, and who would have wanted to? You are supposed to be supportive of any family members decision NO MATTER what it may be. Why would you want to make someone you love unhappy. FAMILY=STICKING TOGETHER! You would have beat the shit out of him dead or alive.. REALLY? You just showed what kind of person you are, and you are going to talk bad about my family??! HIPOCRITE! Don't sit there and say "And HE will take care of Caseys family if they call upon Him!! But we will all meet our judgement in time.Day by Day ...." and then talk about beating the shit out of someone..

I wonder if any of these people who have posted comments in this matter are aware of the true activities and habits of the Poor Young Family.
I would like to start by saying that I am in no way condoning Casey Young’s actions and my heart goes out to Amanda’s family. I am writing to inform the public of the information that has craftily been kept hidden.
I have known this family for years and I wonder how many people will be the victims of the lies and abusiveness of this family? And amazingly they can find a way to justify any and all actions and claim to be the victim, but they will pray for all the people in their wake!!!! Amanda was by far not the first and I fear she will not be the last! And for just how long will law enforcement, child services and the crooked MS Court system continue to aid and abed them and their dishonesty and blatant, documented, disregard for the law??????
And God help me, but I must say, one way or the other, we all pay eventually for our sins.
Do any of you know the horrific facts of this kids life? It is no wonder that this tragic night occurred!!! Casey Allen Morris (name on 1st birth certificate, as mother was unsure as to paternity) was the son of an abusive father, Jimmy Doyle Young, Jr and mother both physically and emotionally, who both would later voluntarily terminate all of their parental rights to him and his brother, Jimmy and sister, Chasity. The first documented case of this abuse was when he was just an infant, and left him hospitalized, in critical condition and with a very pronounced cleft/ridge around his skull as a result of these injuries to his head. This was the first time he was placed in State Custody. He again became a ward of the State of MS at age 8, when his mother/AUNT, convicted felon/ex-con, Jennifer Ruth Morris Young, Netttleton, MS, abandoned him and his siblings. They remained wards of the State until all 3 children were adopted. Perhaps someone should contact Jimmy Young’s 3rd wife, Kimberly , as she too was abused by Mr Young, not only in MS but also in GA after she fled (injured) back there, where Mr Young would come for one of the few ever visits to see their infant child,(the only one of four he still has parental rights to) and harasses, threatens, and destroys property and finally attempts suicide in her home with their infant-child present, where she was forced to move from as a result AGAIN, with an infant. There were warrants issued for Mr Young’s arrest and he was committed for psychiatric evaluation there as a result.
** It was Casey ALAN Morris. Then Casey ALAN Young! Who cares if Jennifer Ruth Morris/Young did not know who the father was.. We have known for years he was Jimmy Doyle Young Jr. child. it was not Jimmy Jr. fault for the misunderstanding of whose Casey was it was Jennifer Youngs for whoreing around..

Grow up Chasity. You didn't live in my house. I took good care of Amanda. She had everything she needed. The abused told lies to cover for their abuser. I talked to her everyday and saw her about every other day. Your brother was behind her going to get rid of her daughter. Happy to send you the letter too! You were not here when Amanda moved in with Casey and neither was I. I was at work at my hospice job thank you. If Amanda had killed Casey ya'll would be falling all over yourselves pissed. But no......he killed Amanda and ya'll are trying real hard to turn everything around and make him look innocent. Say what you want. I saw her hair pulled out and her bruises. I got stuff thrown at my house by him when he would come hunting her down. He let her lay sick with her diabetes at your mothers house when she called the ambulance. You need to do research on domestic violence. My daughter was murdered and ya'll try to lessen that with your oh pitiful me. AMANDA WAS MURDERED. Oh yeh, and you don't seem to be so worried about who brought him over there for some reason. Maybe they killed him. Maybe they beat him up? Why no concern? Do you know who did and afraid to turn one of his friends in? All I know is I was at work and got a call my daughter was shot and killed. I had nothing to do with this and everytime I turn around I'm being accussed of "knowing" things. I was as innocent as ya'll when this all happened. I came out my door the day ya'll brought some of Amanda's things to the house to hug your neck and you looked at me like you could run through me. I had no idea why. I had to keep asking for Amanda's things back and still didn't get her dvd's. I furnished most all of her stuff. From kitchen to bathroom to bedroom. I was constantly giving her money. I told him to quit taking her money and for her to quit giving it to him. Another sign of abuse? All he ever did was laugh when I would say something. He had no RESPECT for anyone. Her car had no insurance on it and I told him not to drive it because it wouldn't be covered.....do you think he cared? Hell no!!!! Do you know what it's like to be a daddy and hear crap that you killed your own daughter? HUH? Then it's changed to he killed them both! Then now he's beat up Casey after he shot himself! Make up yall's mind!! Ya'll want to say all of this stuff about her daddy and make accussations then go see him. No ya'll have attacked me with it. I'm having the same trouble with MCSO that everyone else has. It was a big ole mess! And they know it. I'm biding my time as God's instruction. He will win and no one else. My daughter is dead and He will avenge it! I have nothing further to say to you. I have done nothing wrong as I was not there. Oh and neither were you. Feel free to call her daddy with your accusations. I don't know what happened to him if anything. I went to his grave upset and gonna cuss him but as I said I didn't as it was then I forgave him. I did not cuss him as you say.Read before you repost little girl. Oh and anyone that gets on here and says they know about being abused obviously knows what Amanda went through and the lies she had to live.

This is Casey's younger sister, Elaney Danielle Young. I am not here to speak on the behalf of Kimberly Ann Gatliff Carter Young, as she does not DESERVE my loyalty, or any other human being's. I am done with her imature things.
Just found out the actual truth on what happened about Casey's murder. Thank you once more Kimberly Ann Gatliff Carter Young. You are truly an absurd liar. I would love to see you try and hurt ANYONE here again. These people (Young Family) Are my TRUE family. I am sick of finding out things that you lied about! Things that you told me you NEVER did, yeah, you were the perfect stepmother. Liar. You treated them like they were nothing! What's worse is you treated me the same way, your own blood! You will reap what you sew. One day. Kimberly treated me, her daughter, horribly as Chasity said my whole life. In and out of foster care, though, if you ask Kim she will tell you it's because I lied. That is the lie. She hates to think she is wrong. KIM plays the victim all the time. It's a living Hell with her, I have had friends and boy-friends say that I shouldn't have to endure what I did for nearly fifteen years with her. She does nothing but complain and act like she is more important than everyone else in life, she acts like she is a badass when in reality she is a big-mouthed liar. Always has been. I finally got the courage to tell her my true opinion of her earlier in March and when I did she told me to call my 'good for nothing father' to come get me. I did and I live with the Young family. They have treated me 100 times better than her in every way possible.

After receiving a call from my dad figured I would find this sight where I am been accused of writing something, Well I can honestly say it's not me, but damn I didn't even know all this, this is very intricate knowledge inside information.

But I will say this been all my family is always speaking of "Jesus" which is truth? And in the word of God said one statement in the entirety of the bible spoke of something he hates, A "Liar" So who is lying?"

There's too much anger in here, the dead have found peace, and according to the bible they know nothing.

The living are the ones who have to struggle to find it again.

We all have sins, some worse than others, but a sin that can be repaired, is the sinner's job according to the bible to repair it or make amends with to one it hurt. You can carry sins even when you ask forgiveness. A repetitive sin with a repetitive "oh forgive me" becomes an unheard prayer then we risk been turned over to the reprobate mind. Hmm makes you wonder what's wrong with the world.(When we see wrong as right and right as wrong) and justify it. God turns away.

Now that's a good story if I don't say so myself. I'm good at making shit up and causing problems by sticking my nose where it should never be... That includes smelling cocain.... I never snort it.
