Another senseless murder as occured in our community. It is time for the people of this community and our county as a whole to wake up and realize that you do not live in a safe little bubble and these kinds of tragedies do happen here. Wake up people.This is 2008.Those of you who are still trodding along with the paper bags on your heads had better cut some eye holes in them so you can see what's really going on.

My prayers and deepest sympathy do go to the family of Larry Petty. The comments made in my previous post where not out of topic and I stand behind the comments that were made in my previous post.

it was self defense. and from what i hear, the guy who was murdered was a crack dealer. probably one of the many low lives responsible for the 200% increase in crack cocaine use in wayne county. good riddance!

***You disgust me, how dare you.*** I google the story 3 years later to find the selfish words of an IDIOT. Thank GOD i didn't see this in 2008 when my heart was broken and i was fragile. But today, i am a STRONG woman and mother to Larry's baby boy, now 8 yrs old. i've decided that i will pray for you, because you need prayin for. Larry had a past true enough, but did you know that Larry had turned his life around, did you know that was a full time employee of a construction company at the time of his death, did you know that he was paying child support, and taxes? DIDN'T THINK SO. How DARE YOU JUDGE A LIFE, A HUMAN LIFE. YOU ARENT GOD. Let him do the judging, matter of fact this reminds me of an old saying my grandmother tought me and i'm gonna teach you......when you judge someone, you're not defining them, you're defing YOURSELF...... SO with that being said GOOD RIDDANCE TO YOU BITCH.
