MORE BREAKING NEWS: Norton was spotted in St. Mary's Hospital on Saturday March 21, 2009, the next day after he hit-ran over Max. It appears that his attorney's are laying the ground work for a seisure defense. Yes that's right he actually thinks that his slick high priced attorney Shelly Webster from Mellon Webster & Shelly LLC has advised him that his only hope given the Tsunami wave of evidence that the authorities have against (KoKo for Coco Puffs) Norton, that he can run to the Hospital, take up valuable time and testing equipment for his bogus claim that he had a seisure on the way home and that alcohol had nothing to do with the execution, I mean accident and that's why the rubber left the road. OK Norton lets see if I have got your story right, You were coming back from a Roswell UFO crash site where they abducted you between Giuseppe's and your house three city blocks, and they must have drugged you to do their invasive tests, then let you go, and lowered you back into the driver's seat of your truck, with hours missing from the setting on your Timex Swatch, when Elvis Presley jumped out from behind the telephone pole at Temperance & Blue Fox Rds, and you swerved to avoid the King when you just so happened to bump into Max who was hogging the entire road on his huge Bike. Regis: Is that your final answer. Do you want to use a life line. Yes! OK who do you want to call, Your Wife? OK Verizon Wireless lets get Kathy on the Line! What she is already in the Lincoln MKX on her way down to the site? Now that woman is Johnny on the SPOT!

Easy "sick of this"! I appoligize to you for cowardly hiding behind this keyboard but News Flash: That's how Computers work Input = Keyboard out put = screen! As far as expressing myself in person.. Ok Lets meet at Giuseppe's for a drink...No how about enough to score a Point Four One Three (.413) or we could bring three friends and all drink to Point Zero Eight (.08) so the five of us could all get a DUI driving Home Or we could just invite Norton and cut out the middle 5 guys! Oh Yah then we hit a kid and leave him there for dead while telling him help is on the way. AND I'M the COWARD? Now who is jerking who? BTW That's what the chapstick and vasileen was for! Hey Norton I loved your imitation of DEAD-MAN-WALKING, EXCELLENT Dude! You got the shuffle down just right.....

John Q.
I appreciate your attempts to keep the public up-to-date on the case concerning John Norton but let's be realistic...you got your point across. Norton messed up and it is quite obvious that he is going to pay. We get it. Why do you insist on provoking the general public to become angry and upset with your unnecessary comments about his family and private life. Instead of playing smart ass in response to someone asking you to reveal your identity maybe you could take the hint that you are just as much a coward by keeping your identity anonymous. No one is bothering you so leave John's kids and family out of it. Whether you care, or most likely do not, the fact that you are releasing this type of information is not only rude but dangerous. Max is already hurt and he is in our prayers but do not try to bring Norton's family into this because it is quite obvious that some THING or some ONE could happen to them as well in result of your comments. That is just selfish and uncalled for. You said what you needed to say so here if some news for YOU - you need to lay off.

Actually what is completely humorous is that you completely avoided John Norton's daughter who expressed how you bashed her over the internet but you had more to say about John Norton at such a late hour. Are you too at the .413 level that he was at; while writing these obscure comments? Then please let’s meet at Giuseppe's, and I will see you at John Norton's court date as well... Since you have the audacity to talk about him in such an obscene matter then you should probably be there... You have so much to say and so little to say in person John Q. Public you are the epitome of a five year old.

I find it hilarious that John Q revolves his life around updates on this case. As far as I am concerned, as well as many others, this has nothing to do with you. Therefore, it stuns me as to why you feel the need to consistently update the public with the reports from authorities. You must really feel a personal connection to some part of the people involved. John Q, this has nothing to do with you what so ever. So please stop blogging about it every hour. If others wanted to be informed about this case they would read the news paper. I have never in my life seen such petty bullshit going through the web. I hope you realize your words are not hurting John Norton, but rather his daughters. You seem so concerned with the well being of children why don't you take into consideration John's young children as they battle the hatred you are throwing at them. I am pretty sure at this point your defense is over with. Stop making a fool of yourself. You sound like an obsessed moron. Mind your own business, and keep your comments to yourself. Your anonymous identity is the bravest thing you will ever accomplish in your life. An eighteen year old child stuck up to you and you are speechless. Sucks to suck.

Sincerely,
GET OVER IT

First off THIS WAS NOT AN ACCIDENT!!!!! He was an accident waiting to happen. People keep trying to trivialize this situation calling it a mistake. A mistake is when it happens once, Norton has had previous dui's. As for his wife, who was not drunk, she should also be charged. She should have had the brains to help that child.
Stop saying he made a mistake and that this was an accident.

Clearly it was an accident Miss Jane Q. Public why would someone intentionally set out to strike a child at 530 in the afternoon..And he didnt have previous DUI'S he had ONE other one so get your facts straight. Norton messed up big time but now his kids are taking the fall for what he did; explain how that is ok Miss Jane Q. Public. John and yourself honestly should never consider making one little mistake in your life, because you have so much to say about Norton acting as though you have done nothing wrong in your life.

Explain to me how Norton can sit himself down at the same bar three weeks after the "accident". Clearly he has no remorse and is a true alcoholic. If the first dui did not teach him anything obviously this one did not either. I did not mention his children in my post. If HE cared that much about his children HE wouldn't have gotten behind the wheel!
Please Shut Up

Your right you did not mention John's children in your statement but you’re agreeing with John Q. Public obviously because you put your name as Jane Q. Public. Mr. Public went into Norton's daughter’s facebook to tell anyone that reads this blog that she is disturbing and the apple does not fall far from the tree. And DONT EVER SAY THAT HE DOES NOT CARE ABOUT HIS CHILDREN EVER AGAIN... I'm almost positive you do not know his relationship with his kids so your input is irrelevant. AND how on earth would you know whether or not he has remorse towards this situation oh that's right you don't know. This is entirely about Max's wellbeing this is between Max, his family, and John and his family so you JANE Q. PUBLIC CAN STAY OUT OF IT. AND TELL YOUR ACCOMPLICE TO AS WELL
PEACE

Sick of this--I agree with you that children should not be involved, I don't agree with John Q Public in that respect. I feel sorry for his children. If you have remorse and have learned your lesson YOU DON'T SHOW YOUR FACE IN A BAR THREE WEEKS LATER. HE HAS LEARNED NOTHING.

I do not know just as much as you do not whether or not he is remorseful the main reason why i even read this blog is because a hysterical Jillian Norton called me saying some man was exploiting her in a blog as long as were all in agreement that John Q. Public was fully wrong for publicizing her facebook comment then I am done here... Keep the judging to a minimum people

This is to John Q Whatever Your Name is:
You're absolutely one of the most ridiculous people I've ever met. Is this any of your business? I happen to be extremely close with the children of John Norton, and for you to criticize them for the regretted actions of their father is absolutely absurd. I really don't understand your significance and why you think your opinion is so important, but all I know is that I will not tolerate you talking about these people I care about like that. Find something else to do with your time please. Just leave it alone, the families are dealing with this situation the best that they all can, and your added two cents of pathetic nonsense is so unnecessary. Next time you want to say something, just realize no one cares what you think.

My heart goes out to everyone involved, especially the victim and his family.
I used to know John very well, and he is a good hearted guy who has done a lot for a lot of people over the years. He made a tragic, awful mistake, which he will pay for, and I too hope he gets help.
My prayers are with the two families.

To both of the PUBLICS now writing on here...You're both nuts and you're both making people realize you should both seek Mental evaluations. I will show support for Max but I will also show support for John Norton's family...How dare you drag his children into this...Mentally stable people don't do that and your a sick FUCK for doing that. I can't believe you're both anything more then two nut cases who have escaped from a mental ward. Go find a job and leave this work to the real investigators.

DEAR John Q. Public and the rest of his worthy followers,
I will have you know that I know the Norton family very well, not John in particular but his two daughters and ex-wife. If you are so considered with this terrible, tragic incident that happened with Max, go ahead, state your feelings and angry thoughts. But once you bring an innocent young girl such as Jill into this you have completely crossed the line. Why are you so overly obsessed with what she says to her friends on her facebook? It is very immature of such a "knowledgable man" to go bash an 18 year old girl and his other unknown daughter that they have not been considerate of what happened to Max. You cannot judge John's family, especially his daughters, for something that he did. It has effected them in more ways than one but they have no control over their father's actions. Reading this blog has made me aware of the absolute idiots that read your blog and believe that your thoughts are facts. You need to stop spending so much time focusing on John's family and more time praying for Max, as he is the only true victim that is in need of help at this time. Place yourself in their shoes for one second and realize what you are saying on this blog can destroy a person, not only by the lies that you state as true, but also by being so judgmental. I hope you never make a mistake in your life because you would never except an informed adult to discriminate on your own child for something that you did. I look at the post just placed by Jill, and the posts that you have submitted. GROW UP. Are we 15 years old here discussing rumors that can potentially get you into a whole mess of a new problem? I can't believe this blog has turned into an area of pure hatred against the wrong person.
Hi Jill...Please don't listen to anything this Nut Case Public is saying. He is just some bored asshole who has nothing better to do. He has no rights what so ever to drag you kids into this but that's what CRAZY people do. Sweetie just continue focusing on your education and don't pay attention to him, maybe he'll find a real job soon and he'll go away. I have Max in my prayers of course but I also have your family in my prayers. Just know that a lot of people love your Dad and we are praying for him also. Take care and Good luck with your studies !

John Q - I know you do know the family because I figured out who you are. That was a real cheap shot at Jill. She is a good girl and she did nothing wrong. Her little sister is also a good girl. I understand why you hate John. I also have my reasons. Those kids have had a rough life already and they don't need anymore crap loaded down on them. Don't write one more thing about those girls. They are off limits. Max and all the girls should be in everyone's prayers. They are children and should not be used for payback. I think you know that and owe her an apology .

Jill,
Please don't even look at this crap anymore. Focus on keeping your head on straight and get good grades. When you get out of school you will be able to get out of that area and start a new life.
