I know Casey and so does every working cop in Columbus.
Record a mile frickin long and what do you know in many of his cases DRUGS were involved.
So do any of you think this was a "random" robbery or could it be another of Columbus Ohio's fine doper/dealers life catching up with them ??????

Personally, I'd like to see the death toll pass 2000 this year... but only as long as it remains mostly punks killing punks. That's one way to take out the garbage.

Will Burns ... IF you are committing a FELONY inside your home and you are being robbed for drugs and the profits of the dope dealin' you are doing the song and dance you are defending your home won't fly ... PLUS a convicted FELON can't own a gun in any state.

The Dispatch needs to learn about freedom of speech and the power of the pen. Again you refused to print my blog and it had no bad words or racism in it at all. If you don't want peoples opinon then don't ask for it. Close down this site and go elsewhere to become a dictator

No Dirk didn't. Go to www.fcmcclerk.com to look up Franklin County misdemeanor charges and http://fcdcfcjs.co.franklin.oh.us/CaseInforma... to look up Franklin County felony cases.

Dirk forgot to check the felony website. The poor poor victim Casey has two felony convictions for improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle along with some felony drug convictions. This means the poor poor poor victim Casey isn't allowed to be in possession of a firearm by law.

You want to save some money in the state budget? The death of this "victim" will save thousands of dollars for the prosecution of would be future cases. I feel no sorrow for people like this who are murdered and I'm offended when they're referred to as "victims." Now all we need is to put the murderer in prison and we kill two birds with one stone :)

This is their site and they can do what they want. There is no law that says they have to post your rantings. Maybe if you got out of your mom's basement every once in a while, you might know how the real world works.

I like how people are closed minded about things. Like I said before, if they don't want input, why ask for it. They should take all, not some. That's what political people do.

I knew Casey personally, went to school with him, he was an very intelligent individual, and do not judge people because of bad choices in life, not all of grow with up eating off of silver forks and spoons! Either way all of you who are saying it's okay he's dead because he was involved with drugs needs to kill yourself. Only one person in this world has the right to judge another person, so your opinions don't really matter. Those of you who have never been through the struggles like us in the inner city, please don't comment because you sound so fu**ing stupid.
