There was a young man killed execution style in the head near Ripplemead Court maybe 2 years ago, he was found in the backyard of a home on Rome-Hilliard. The father of the murdered boy is a Columbus Police officer. The boys were egging in the middle of the night and ran when they heard a man yelling stop and more words, this young man met his end. The murder is still an open case. I have an errie feeling after hearing this report that this could solve a crime.

Give this piece of garbage the punishment he really deserves. A years worth of continous lashes followed by the electric chair.

I have seen what this man can do. He is extremely dangerous. Why does he keep getting out of jail? I agree with Solved. Why? Because I have heard him threaten people before. I have seen what he is capable of. Please do whatever you can to keep this man behind bars. Please check his gun versus the bullet that killed that young man.

Where are all the people on this thread that claim he was just starting to turn his life around? Does turning your life around mean you start to walk backwards?????

This was a misunderstanding coming from someone who knows him. this didn't to be on the news. plus that sign is only for a few racist people in the neighborhood and around the area plus he did not threat that man kids back in march. it was not a barricade or hostage situration. he had his kids in there. they slanted the truth. and he did not kill garret Burton. the murder happened 3 houses down. and his family was sleep including his 12 year old son who was 10 back in aug of 08 who went to sleep a hour before it went down.And he toally don't have firearms or guns. This was racial discrimnation. so the news people lied

Interesting points!! If he was a convicted felon and did have a gun, he would surely have been arrested for more than obstruction. These idiotic reporters need to do their job or go work for the tabloids !!!

Well let's see here.
1)Your a convicted felon. Robbery is a violent act.

2) You have a threatening sign in your yard.

3)You "allegedly" threatened your neighbors with violence.

Usually where there's smoke there's fire. And just an fyi if SWAT is called out for you then more than likely you are a threat AND your sure to make the news.

Or is this just another misunderstood felon?

Timothy had carefully weeded his grass, cut his lawn to a perfect lenght, and tenderly watered it. Timothy gingerly put up signs that read "Please stay of of me because I want to be a beutiful lawn". Then one day comes along little Jamal with his doggy. Jamal forgot his poop picker upper bag. It was the wrong day to P off Timothy.

The "news people" said he was picked up for allegely threatening a neighbor. They didn't post all the other stuff you mention. So how did they lie?

Isn't he a convicted felon, "I know the truth"? So of course he's a "great guy." And by the way, if you want to get your point across to other people, try learning how to write, will you?

If you are a convicted felon or NOT anytime you make a threat even with a TOY gun to me you are committing SUICIDE BY COP or SCARED NEIGHBOR.
Sorry about your luck if you are that DUMB.
IF you are waving around a knife remember the INVITATION said GUN FIGHT and you can kiss your stupid arse good frickin' bye !!!
