Anthony Jones is my Little brother and it saddens me and my family that people are so quick to pass judgement on a situation they know nothing about. My family and I are constantly keeping Joey in our prayers and we really hope he fully recovers. to all you cyber gangsters, please let both of our families deal with this issue without side bustin lames commenting about bubba and gangster.. My brother is no gangster and bubba is not an issue either it's the people who comment on these articles that add fuel to the fire. The only people that truly know what happened that night are the ones that were there, So please let justice handle this and instead of criticizing start praying for Joey and Anthony and the families that have to read these comments.. Thank You

<quoted text> He looks like a REAL idiot "gangsta".....sorry, punk, this is what is in store for you "gangstas". They think theyre soooo cool, let's see how cool he is with Bubba when he bends over. Good. It's fitting.....literally.
.. You are very right not everyone has lived a lovely lavish sheltered life such as you... And nobody is perfect right.. except you.. If you dont know about the situation you really shouldn't be on here commenting.. I feel bad for what happened but you people bringing my family into this is crazy.. This is exactly why society is the way it is because of "drama queens"..

And i apologize you never flipped off your brother or sister, My family may not be rich but we are pretty tight knit. We are very apologetic for what happened and Joey is in our constant prayers. Please let our families start to heal and deal with all of this dont bring us into this drama by talking about us and our mom in this page. Thank You

Man, you f****n' idiots don't have a clue, talkin' out your asses about crime and punishment. You have NO idea what it's like to live in the world we live in. How do you know this young man wasn't defending him self from the so called "victim" in this case. Every one in this situation has a family and loved ones, there are no winners here, it's sad. Talkin' all that bulls**t about sodomizing another human being?!?!? You're the piece of s**t in my book.
Whatever, what I can tell you is that whoever shot this guy was weak, somone who had to resort to a gun instead of handling his business like a real man. Now in prison he's gonna ben handling some other man's "business"

I'm sorry for what happend and I'm praying for Joe but the only thing I'm praying for regarding your brother is that he goes away for a long time. People need to be accountable for thier actions and I hope that the court system makes an example out of him.

Those of you making comments about Mr. Jones need to go on Solano Superior Court website. Mr. Dyer has a record for domestic violence, dui and a few misdomeanors. Mr Jones has no record. Mr. Dyer is a known drug user and tweaker. He was arrested for domestic violence against Mrs. Lewis. Isn't that his Mother? A victim you say? Why don't you let Mr. Jones get a fair trial in the courtroom and not on a website. Let's hear both sides! Isn't this America where we have the right to a fair trial. Innocent until proven guilty! Leave both families alone and thank God that your family isn't going through this heartache!

To keep it real since when was 3 on 1 anykind of fair fight? 1 man in his truck and 3 men assaulting him thru a window. Ring a Bell Joeys friends. Think Im lying go to Chris's Club or wait for the surveilance video to show... I hope Joey makes a full recovery but 3 on 1 is never good odds and alcohol and women never help either... Keep it real before you comment further because the proof will show what truly happened.. THATS THE REAL..

Is that why Jones is carrying a 9mm to go out for drinks? When you got out on weekends do you carry a gun with you?

I'll say one thing: Anthony's brother writes a great deal more literately than Anthony does. My impression is that Anthony is a little slow and not blessed with the best decision-making skills.

If he indeed has no record of any sort of trouble with the law, then I'll stand by what I said. Not too bright, not street smart either evidently. Sounds like Tony needed a keeper, maybe.

Regardless, I am sorry for the families of both parties involved.

As an aside....why do kids nowadays think it's cool to act/look/talk like a dumb, violent gangsta rapper? Talk about a bad influence. Just as a "what if", suppose this Anthony person had grown up without that cultural dung poisoning his values and thought processes. If he'd been raised on Tony Bennett or the Beatles or Louis Armstrong or Joan Baez, would he have even been carrying a lethal weapon to go clubbing at all? Would he have used it when simply getting the heck out of there would've been a far wiser--if less "cool" and macho--course of action?

Not that the old days were perfect either, but we can at least try to limit our children's exposure to the "culture" of violence, anger, misogyny, infantile selfishness and shallowness, sociopathic arrogance and moral decay.

Might've benefitted Anthony Jones, perhaps.

You should heed your own advise. Calling out the victims past while he grips for life is hardly leaving his family alone. All of these folks involved need prayer, lots of it, not all the name calling and finger pointing that you and the others are doing. Prayer...for Joey, for Anthony for the families that will endure the pain and heartache that has be thrust upon them. I'm praying for the short sightedness of the folks in this forum as well.

Ohhhh...Tony has the blunt behind his ear...I'm soooo stupid....what an idiot! So how exactly does that make it better? These are the photos he chose to represent himself....I didn't pick them, he did....let's not forget that. I'm sorry you're right, he looks like an upstanding citizen (with a blunt behind his ear, dressed like a gangster, and giving the finger with his mom in the pic)....nice.

I was being sarcastic!
I was responding to the bashing that Mr. Jones was receiving. Calling his family trash and putting the blame on Mr. Jones without knowing what caused the violence in the first place. It doesn't feel good to be bad mouthed by people who don't know the facts or even the people they are talking about. Friends of Mr.Dyer need to stop! Every story has two sides and I was showing Mr. Jones side by using facts I know to be true.
The Jones family and the Dyer family have had enough bashing. Like I said " Leave it to the courts to decide who was at fault!"

Well, amen to that! And truth be told, Mr. Dyers foolishness as a youth being publicized here in this forum doesnt seem like it would bring healing or good if that was your intention...Perhaps the truth of the two lives he saved just by being in the right places at the right time should come into play? It's just not a tit for tat...good or bad...this is all tragedy...to all...Your comments seemed hypocritical just seemed more bashing. Just my opinion.

You're right 4 star, I don't know what led up to this. I'm betting a lot of drinks and two people talking a whole lot of shit and then being stupid. No sodomy then, just heavy petting!!
