Would Anthony, whom I am sure is a fine young man, still be alive if:
The blood-alcohol limit was not 3 times legal limits?
2 weapons were not brought into an unarmed altercation?
Nick sought medical assistance, for Anthony, immediately?

Also---
Why wasn't Anthony charged with mob action?
Is there some connection between Birkett & the Artiman family?---Neighbor, relative, employee?
First of all , get it right!! Nick was the one who was killed. Anthony was trying to defend his brother. Troy and Lou were much larger than Nick and Anthony. Nick was all of 5'6" and Anthony is 5'8". Troy is a steroid freak and a drug user and Lou was Troy's little puppet. Do you really think Nick or Anthony had much of a chance? Give me a break!!

There are two little babies that never even had the chance to know their father because Troy can't control his temper.

Personally, I hope that he gets the maximum the law allows and Bubba is waiting for him at whatever prison they put him in. And when all is said and done, I hope he rots in hell!!!

I was at court and the only scary people were Troy and his family. If I remember correctly it was ordered by the judge that both families had to sit on opposite sides of the courtroom because Troy's family started several fights. And on several occasions were kicked out of the courtroom. It doesn't matter who brouhgt waht to the fight, the facts are Troy and Lou are big men and Nick and Anthony are not. If I saw someone killing my brother I think a flashlight in my defense would be sufficient, if not a little less. I think everyone is forgetting the point, whether or not Troy actually did it he was involved and that makes him a muderer. A whole family will miss Nick and his children will never know him. Anyone who thinks is a muderer is "handsome" is sick and next time you write something on a forum use spell check make yourself look a little more intelligent.

What happend was wrong but fault is on both side and mostly on Artman Brother.
This people who were supporting Artman familly at court look scary. They were cut on lying so I believe Troy is not Guilty and he was charge wrong with mob action . He shoould be let free.
I feel sorry for Artman Familly because they lost their son father and boyfriend.

I have known Troy all my life and he as always been kind, respectful, and typical boy when growing up. The Kindt's started their business working very hard to get where they are today. All the "boy's", because that's how they all acted that night, were all guilty of fighting. Because of this someone did die. Nobody should be fighting at all and justice has prevailed his innocense. You can send as many ignorant emails as you want, but you can't fight justice. There is a "God" and he chose him to be innocent.
Are you sure the family didn't pay him off too??

All you people that think Troy is such a wonderful person, ask your self this.

Why would a person leave a scene and come back (Which he testified to)...Well I'll answer it for you, to start a fight...a fight that ultimately left a young man dead.

Troy is a bad person and has always been. He actually should be in Hollywood, because apparently he has a lot of people convinced he is an outstanding citizen...Wow, what a great acting job.

all I have to say is this is a disaster. If there is a "God" he would have been in jail. His whole family are fr5eaks and if you really want to know something he is an ignorant piece of crap. A 34 year old daddy's boy who is incompitent and has really gotten away with murder.

How cul;d you say that
i Know troy
and he suffer to he got almos 50 stichies on his had
and it was artman brother who bring the flashlight that killed his brother
so why he wasn't charge with anything
he should be charge for hiting troy and bringing murder weapon
Get a life!!! you are all selfish people who care obviously for only scum bag people. You are probably his girlfriend trying to stick up for him. It's okay because I believe in carma what goes around comes around. And let me say this, you can take his stiches and shove it because he and his ego mean nothing to me. His parents really raised a spoiled piece of crap. And as far as the "brother" he shouldn't have been charged with anything. He saw his brother die right in front of his eyes, that is enough said.

Anthony did not receive any charges because there were none, a grand jury beleived he was acting on self defense.

And finally there is no connectionwith birkett and the Artmans except he tried their case. If you want to look into Attorney friendships look at Tealander and the Kindt's, he's been doing business with them for a long time.
You must be a kindt member to even say that there was a connection between Birkett and the Artman's. How about Telander and the kindt's you people disguist me so much that i want to vomit. Try looking at the facts before you speak.

About the grand jury...believing Anthony sounds like you abide by the jurys verdict but...
In Troys case a jury found him not guilty of all charges except the BS "mob action" but you seem to have lost faith in jurys now..........

I have no idea what trial that Jury was listening to. I was there and witnessed it first hand. Every witness Kindt's defense had on the stand perjured themselves. It was one bad actor after another. Pat Santoro could have won the Academy Awards. How the jury bought that is beyond me! We all know and he and his family know - HE GOT AWAY WITH MURDER !!!!!!!! His violent past was not allowed for the jury to see. Some day his luck will end.

The Artman supporters that you believe are scary are family and extended family of the Artman Brothers. We are not scary. We grieve for Nicklaus and, wish we could do something to bring some peace to these parents. Troy has no regard for human life. You could see this in the courtroom. He beat Nick to death after he was unconscience. This is an animal! His parents created a monster by condoning his every action from childhood on. This is public record. Look it up for yourself. For all you people who say "There is a God," you are right. God knows and, someday Troy will know that God knows. Let's see Daddy buy him out of that one!!

Troy did not commit this crime and it was proven that he did not. Anyone that sat in that courtroom would know based on Louis Battistonis’ account and his prior confession that he was outright lying. It is unfortunate that a fight resulted in a murder. However, charges should have been pressed on Anthony Artman for participating in a fight.“Good guys” don’t produce weapons such as a Mag Light and a knife, well at least not the one’s that that I know. Thank god for the justice system. The truth is plain as day.
Troy Kindt is a bad person because he has bad parents. He was taught well by his Daddy, "Get him from behind." The Kindt family thinks they are the Sopranos. Led by Uncle Pat who thinks he's a mob boss but, is just a ten cent big shot. Are you sure that your no one of those stupid jurors that didn't know what was going on in that courtroom? Wake up-----this kid is guilty as sin!!!

That was the most well put comment put on this site. These people are truly a joke. funny how life works what goes around comes around. Nick truly left a legacy. He was loved by many, and no matter what anyone says, nobody I know will ever have a 2&1/2 mile funeral persession. I pray to God every day that Nick haunts Troy every time he closes his eyes. Nobody will ever know how much Nick meant to us all. And may his love of life live on through the legacy of his children.

This case goes to prove our judicial system is a joke. Prosecutors, jury members and law enforcement should be ashamed that this monster is back on the street. It is sad but true that people with less financial means would be on death row for murder. I'm ashamed to be an American right now. May Satan take the murderer and all his "supporters" straight to HELL !

karolina, you are an ignorant, insensitive dimwit. your grasp of the english language is maybe first grade. ya know what ? "morder weapon" or not this tragedy would have happened anyway. The murderer was in roid rage before "morder weapon" was introduced. "Artmann brother" was desperately trying to save his brother from a MONSTER. It is a shame that the world has to live in fear that this murderer is free.

Who are all of you to stand on your soap box and judge someones parenting? I think it is obsurd to blame parenting. I didn't know all of you were voted parent of the year. You are talking about a grown man and you are going to blame his parents? Shows how obsurd you people are. Here is a compliment, his mother is an extremely nice, caring woman.
