First off, I would like to say that I am from Chelsea/Birmingham Alabama, and Ryan and I were very close friends during the 2nd-8th grade years. I am currently in law school, and after having done relatively well in my criminal law course, I think it is safe to say that fatass "Chaz" is likely to have no viable defense to the capital murder charge. While I have not been to the state of Georgia in over a year, and all the evidence I have seen is what has been posted on the newspaper publications/forums, I DO know what it takes to convict an individual of 1st degree/capital murder (im not sure the designation in GA jurisdiction). Anyway, capital murder consists of an intentional homicide that was "planned" after having given the idea a "second thought" or "turning the idea over" in the suspect's mind. Since "CHaz" followed the kids out into the parking lot, this shows that he was executing an intent. I have heard that Chaz put the knife away periodically, and then pulled the knife back out. This is a prima facie case of intentional homicide. He had the thought to commit the murder, gave it a second thought, and decided that was what he wanted to do....and he did it. It might have been different if Chaz was cornered somewhere, or the boys approached him and put him in a situation where he had to make a choice, but this is not the case. He made the volitional choice to approach them, pulled out the knife, twice, and decided to use it the second time. This is a clear case of intentional homicide, and that fat old bastard deserves capital punishment.

Furthermore,(I will refer to him as "cheese" hereinafter because he doesn't deserve the dignity of being called by his real name/nickname) cheese will likely raise the affirmative defense of "self-defense"...an individual invoking self-defense on a murder charge can do so, if and only if, he was facing an "imminent" threat of force likely to inflict severe bodily harm or death. The facts show that there never was any threat of severe bodily harm or death. Cheese was much bigger than the boys, first of all. Second of all, the boys produced no threat likely to inflict such a serious injury-none of them wielded a knife/gun. Third, even if they did, the threat was not imminent. He approached the boys, and initiated the altercation.
It saddens me when I go to a bar and I see individuals that are much older than the average person there. In these situations, the individual is usually of a lower economic and intellectual status. However, they cannot help this a lot of the time, and by virtue of the grace of God, kids like Ryan and myself are lucky enough to be gifted. On the other hand, when these old/stupid losers go to bars and feel like thye have something to prove or try to impress the women (because they don't have the economic power or intellectual power to do so otherwise) at the expense of innocent kids like us, this is a different story. Cheese, if you wanted to make yourself look better or cooler, you should take out a loan, get an education, and pay the money back after you get a real job. Face it, you are a fucking loser---any 45 year old man that plays the role of a bouncer because he likes the power of being able to order people around, likely because the only power he has is that power NOT in his brain, deserves to be doing something were social skills are not involved. Cheese although your efforts did not go unnoticed, i can safely say that you failed once again at tryin to impress the ladies.
Had i already passed the bar exam, I would plead with Jimmy and Robin to allow me to sue Chaz in the ensuing civil suit. It would not be hard to obtain a verdict on behalf of the Gilliam/Dees family, as the evidence shows no dispute of material fact that would support Cheese's defense.
Jeff, I havent seen or spoken to you in quite some time, but I wish you the best. Just remember, that a lot of the people out there are not quite as mentally/physically gifted as the rest of us and they feel they have nothing to lose when it comes to gaining attention and looking "cool", as cheese exhibited this night....
