Shocking this actor was addicted to heroin too and has a long rap sheet of robberies. If this actor was not stopped now he would have killed someone.

A special thanks to the attorney who defended this punk in the past and the judge who didn't put him in jail for the crimes he committed.

Do any of you even know him.. no so stfu talking about him, he was a good person. He did not deserve to die and that's effed up you could say that. Remember he has hurt family and friends. We all make mistakes. How you going to talk a mess on someone who can't even defend theirselves. I hope the clerk gets charges for shooting him after his back was turned and already leaving. Rip pat. May all you talking a mess on someone you don't know and who can't defend them selves may you rot in hell! Bet you couldn't survive a day in his shoes.

We may be talking a mess (as you put it) on someone who cant defend themselves. But it is quite obvious that he didnt choose the rob someone that couldn't defend themself.
Lesson to all crooks: only rob anti gun democrats, they will not be armed.

Ya i get that but people don't need to talk bad on him, he didn't need to die. Couldn't have been that much of a threat, seeing he didn't shoot. Will never know what happened. Its only the clerks side of the story we get, and people are putting him down as a bad person. Pats not that stupid, he wouldn't have pulled the trigger and he didn't. He could have shot back ... let his family and friends grieve..

True, we do not know Patrick, I am sorry for you and his family and friends loss. There is no winners here. Victims all over the place. He struggled with addiction, no joking matter, made poor decisions as I (we) also have, thankfully I am alive today. Sadly he made a very bad choice. However, you must understand people will be angry and defend what happened and talk negatively about him as a thief, armed gunman. It is the cold hard fact. He may have grown up bad, suffered addiction issues, however we all have trials we have had to endure, some make it, some do not. Truth is truth. Again, sorry for your loss. However you must also remember the store clerk has also become a victim and must live with this for his life also. Again, no winners here. Both families are injured. I speak from experience.

Cry me a river bitch. As I was taught in the Military, you flash a gun you better be prepared to use it. Some people don't take too kindly to threats like that and some have been shot at and know what to do. OOH RAH!

Should the clerk have known or assumed he wouldn't pull the trigger? If your answer is no then it's justified to think he might pull the trigger and what he got was justice. If your answer is yes you're stupid.

Don't talk bad on him? Really? If I put a Glock to your kid's face don't talk bad about me? Really?

While your compassion is noted it should stop short of getting down on someone threatened. Where's your compassion for the victim?

Perhaps if he was sentenced to jail for prior crimes he would not have robbed someone at gunpoint. Also, you know the best way to get shot? Point a gun at someone who is armed. My best guess is his "punk" picture on facebook indicates what kind of person he was. How many people did he rob and not get caught? What exactly is your definition of a good person? Have you ever had your home burglarized? I have and it is very disturbing. If in the future I have the oppurtunity to shoot someone robbing my house, I won't care if they are armed or not. They do not belong in our society. Sorry for your loss.

I can't believe you posted that he couldn't have been that much of a threat because he didnt shoot.. WOW REALLY?? so if I were to break into your house and point a gun at you and your family members, you wouldn't feel that I was very much of a threat as long as I didn't shoot any of them.
I can understand that you are grieving, but he made a bad choice. It is not the clerks fault this happened.

His criminal history is quite long and he had done time (I think)and probation, still didn't work for him. That is why I said before, eventually he would have killed someone.

Also if I were the clerk it would be ok that I just shot the perp where normal people have a heart, killing him.

But if a close family member or friend were the clerk I would have come down after the fact, sledgehammered the perp's skull, sliced up his face and shit in his mouth...just prior to torching his carcass.

Please somebody, let the perp's family know how lucky they are that their precious snowflake didn't screw with my family or close friends.

I'm getting just a little tired of this shit in Erie.

You don't get the mafia "omerta" tattooed on your arm if you're just an innocent, harmless person.

He was a thug and the world is a better place without him. I feel bad for the clerk and his family and co-workers.
