this is truly sad, for both families of the deceased and the young man that shot her, it was an accident. but, so many kids are being killed by guns. children should not be handling guns, for any reason.

i have a friend, that knows these two, i did not know the girl, but i did meet the young boy before, i know it was an accident, and he regrets this more than anything, i do not agree with him, having the gun in the first place.

SO, what kind of town do we live in that lets people who shoot little girls walk the streets free of charge!? Alot of people think and almost know that neither of these incidents were accidental, regardless of what has been said. There are so many different stories out, that no one really knows what really happened or why. Most believe that these attacks were premeditated and purposely performed. It seems to us that it is ironic that both incidents envolved people from the same 'clique'. It is thought that there may be something behind the scenes that no one knows about. Think about it. Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer.

How do we go on with life as usual if we have no information and lots of rumor.How do we let our Girls go to school or walk the streets.

How can we be safe?
We wonder why this would happen in such a quaint little town. Well the truth is it has happened because we allowed it to. The girls that were murdered were not exactly perfect. I know this because I went to school with Courtney and dated Shelly's brother. They were rebellious and did drugs. And there parents allowed it to happen. They didn't even try to punish these children when they did bad. They just scolded them, and thought they were "good" parents. And as for the our city servants. I don't belive the police want to deal with the issue. The less they do, the more time they get to watch their movie at 12:30 a.m. How can the citizens of Jacksboro feel safe when our Police Officers all go to the station at 12:30 in the morning to watch a movie? And when they (Cody Carter) respond to a call where here person is serriously scared, they are a complete smart ass and is rude and inconsiderate. They have become practically useless. And nno one in this town wants to confront the drug issue in the High School the this town praises. For God's sake if you didn't want the tiger head stepped on, why the hell would you put it on the floor inside the front doors? Hello! Is this town that stupid? As for these "accidents", how can they be an accident when two have occured?

this is a poem writen by destanie sternadel

shelly cole

a bright texas sun
beat down upon this day
in the middle few should know
a teenage soul should stray

stlole by a theif
with no apparent motivation
this mad offered
no explantion

a mighty blast filled the air
she had wronged none
all of a sudden
her life was undone

now robbed of her life
she shall carry on
with the pull of a trigger
she was forever gone

yet carry on she shall
carry on shelly cole
for your passing was
out of your control

happy you shall be
in the heavens above
wings you shall have
like that of a dove

your beauty lives on
long past your breath
it was near devastating
when informed of your death

shelly o shelly
what has been done
for your eyes where brighter
than that of the sun

though your body lies notionless
on that of the floor
your soul shall undoubtedly
live evermore

carry on shelly
carry on

thank you very much

Im sick inside about all of this. The police botched it all! Its time to do something! But what? Im scared for my own daughter, from what I hear, this gun was stolen. How many more stolen guns are on these streets? Are they in the hands of kids or adults who are thoughtless> I believe they are. The police here are worthless!!

everyone that is lying about being Shellys best friend needs to quit posting comments on the internet trying to get people to feel sorry for them it is wrong to use someones death for attention and im pretty sure everyone who actually knew Shelly agrees!! We are sick and tired of the lying half of the people post all of this stuff Shelly didnt even like!! Now there were some that she did. But those who are lying know who you are and Shellys friends know who you are. Also unless you were there and saw her get shot you dont need to be posting anything because you dont know what really happened. Your not making anything any better. Thanks!!
