this is great news. Every jail cell should have a rope incase the inmate would like to do the taxpayers a favor.

If that's how you feel then you should suggest ropes in every welfare offices too. How much of our tax dollars do you think go to that? Put their lazy butts to work!

well for starters I don't deal drugs or live a life style that would cause me to worry about that happening, i prefer a more honest lifestyle where I have a legit job and not being constantly looking over my shoulder for police or other drugs,

as for people on welfare, I have no problem with people who are using welfare legally, it is the ones who are the fourth generation on welfare and see nothing wrong with it and expect the government to give them everything they want instead of getting a real job that I have a problem with.

As for welfare, it should be for those who need it and drug testing in order to get it and keep it. Just another thought on how my taxes should be spent, unsensitive, no, hard working, yes.

I cannot pass judgement on this individual as I only know what I have read.

In order for him to kill himself there had to be a whole lot of guilt. Of course also knowing what his outcome would be if found guilty probably played a factor in it.

If nothing else maybe this will be how he leads by example. I am glad he will not be able to mooch off of the society he refused to conform to.

It is a shame and a sad waste of a human life. Don't get me wrong... I have no love for a drug dealer. This is just another example of how drugs can destroy a life. People are lured to selling drugs because of the money. How much does peace of mind cost? I feel drug dealers should be tied and punished the same as murderers the result is the same!

A set up? A tip from america's most wanted, a high profile case and the cops would have him killed?? Right, just what the authorities would want. things aren't always a conspiracy, sometimes sh@# is just sh@#!!

Wow paul(rosie O dumbald)maybe the same people whom knocked down the trade center towers did it.
Yes I think he the low-life scumbag, did hang his self.
And save the Great State Of Ohio and the city of Yellow? something hard earned tax dollars to keep his dumb thug self in a state prison or better on a cell marked DEATH-ROW.
Now that is my Opinion. Oh and you can use this quote if you want to, "Shoot or Kill a Thug Get a Hug".

Oh, and just what type of fish does it sound like?

(1)"It is a shame and a sad waste of a human life."
No I don't think it is.

(2)"People are lured to selling drugs because of the money."
Hahaha yeah right, and the so called Rap star life.

(3)"How much does peace of mind cost?"
Just a hair over 3 cents if you load your own ammo,or 15 dollars a box if you buy them from a retail store.

This low-life has saved the Great State Of Ohio and the county of Greene,and the city of yellow?something, a great deal of money and heartache. I think they should at least send some lily's to his head stone. If they have spare cash around. If not then oh well.

I knew him personally. Deep down he was a good person and followed the wrong people down the wrong path. He wasnt the KINGPIN as the media portrays him to be. He left behind a 5 year old son and a wife. He was a close friend who would do just about anything to help a friend in need, and has done so for me. He saved my life when I was mixed up in a bad crowd and I never really told him how much that changed my life. He believed in God and I cant believe he would take his own life. He attended college with me for many years and he was an exceptionally bright businessman who used his talents the absolute wrong ways. He will be missed and I hope that God will have mercy on his soul. He followed the money and we all know that money is the root of all evil, he couldve done anything he wanted. Let this be a lesson to us all, the sadest thing in life is wasted talent.
