You don't defend yourself against fists by stabbing somebody. That's like defending yourself against a butter knife with an AK-47.

i just found this forum and i would like to comment. this boy desserves jail time for killing someone in cold blood. A friend of mine nine years ago was stabbed at a party and died it was very sad and that kid that stabbed him i think is already out that is not justice i think they should take his freedom away as he did to the other teen

Unbelievable.
This kid stabs(3 times)another to death and is convicted of manslaughter.
Our legal system is in such disrepair!
Nonviolent drug offenders routinly go to prison longer.
Tax offenders routinly go to prison longer.
Not that either offense is acceptable,but priorities in our legal system at the very least need major reform.

Raymond is NOT a P.O.S he is a very sweet boy. I knew him personally for YEARS and he is NOT one to go randomly killing people.
He doesn't deserve more than 5 years in jail.

ALL OF YOU WHO THINK HE KILLED THIS GUY IN COLD BLOOD HAS NO IDEA WHAT WENT ON

RAYMOND WOULD NEVER KILL SOMEBODY ON PURPOSE.

IT ISN'T BEST TO TAKE AWAY HIS LIFE BECAUSE A FIGHT BROKE OUT AT A PARTY WHERE DUSTIN (VERY DRUNK) APPROACHED RAYMOND AND STARTED FIGHTING WITH HIM. THE MAN GOT WHAT WAS COMING TOWARDS HIM HE SHOULDN'T OF PUSHED RAY. IT WAS IN SELF DEFENSE AND I'M CRUSHED HOW HES GOING TO BE IN JAIL FOR AT LEAST 10 YEARS.

YOU PEOPLE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW RAY, SO DON'T POINT FINGERS AND PLACE BLAME SAYING HE DESERVES SOMETHING LIKE NO FREEDOM AND RUINING HIS ENTIRE LIFE.

Lisa is absolutely right. None of you actually
know what went on. How can you sit there and
say that he deserves it when you only know
one side of the story. Ray IS NOT a cold blooded
killer, he does not deserve EVEN 5 years in jail.

You people are awful.:|

By the way.

Ray was DEFENDING himself.
He doesn't just go around
killing random people. Ray wouldn't
even PERSONALLY kill a fly. But if
a drunk 20+ came after me, and no one
was willing to help me, I would of did the
same thing.:|

Sorry sweetie. You don't defend yourself against a fist with a knife. You defend yourself against a fist with a fist. He made his own decision. He shouldn't have even been carrying a knife. He deserves everything he got plus some.

Defending himself from what? Did his attacker have a weapon? You can't stab someone THREE TIMES to keep from getting a bloody lip, broken nose or losing a tooth or two. And someone doesn't turn superhuman when they reach the age of "20+" so that is not an excuse, either. You "would of did the same thing"? Well, prepare yourself for twenty years also.

There were multiple guys near twice his size surrounding him who were friends of Dustin (I heard.. Wasn't personally there)
Ray didn't stab him THREE times.
there WERE other blades found with dustins blood found on them. aswell as other people with his blood on them.

Ray stabbed him ONCE just to get him to STOP attacking him he didn't want the guy to die, just to stop attacking him.

and NO I am not his baby momma. I'm one of his close friends.

Lame, lame, lame. This is a tragedy, not a time for overzealous crusaders to make their witty analogies and narrow-minded opinions known to others. So, stop spouting off and just accept that it's too bad that Dustin was killed and it's too bad the Ray is going to miss 20 years of his life. Any way you look at it, it's a terrible situation.

He should go to prison, he killed someone, pretty low move to pull a knife on a defenseless person. Think about this kids parents.

Sorry Wayne.........but Dustin was'nt a defenseless person. He broke Ray's nose when he hit him 1st ( punched him 3 times in the face)and towered over him. Dustin was over 6 feet tall and had the upper hand on Ray. Dustin was over 1 foot taller then Ray and 4 years older.

Ray was trying to get him off him. Ray had no where to go an no one was helping him so he pulled out the knife to get him away from him, unfortunately it went right in his heart.
