I have known Joseph for over ten years and have never known him to be mean or evil. He is big but ful of life and full of love. He always is polite and a pleasure to be around.

i think the whole incident is very unforunate but joe is a good guy that is very full of love and the type of person who wouldnt attack anyone unless it was completly necssary! not saying the the decest wasnt.but i have had the pleasure of being with joseph and im sad for the both of them and the whole event.and love triangles are never good for anyone.and my heart goes out to the deceast and his family but as well as to joseph love him and im praying for him.

All of you need to stop. I have know Joe for many years and he was, is, and has always been a player. This time he got caught up in his own game. Vivian K. you may be Joe's lover, but just one of many. This is not the first time he has been in jail for some stupid, unthinkable act. The best thing for you is to thank your lucky stars that you weren't involved in this whole "love trianlge" mess.
Move on, girl... I can assure you, the woman involved has.

I used to work with Herman and I just found out today. You see his brother called Herman's old cell phone so he could hear his voice before leaving a message. Herman was someone that you could talk to and joke with. Both my wife's and my heart and prayers go out to his family. Also in memory of Herman lets root for the Steelers and hope they make it all the way. They were his favorite team.

QUESTION?? WHEN A PERSON HAS TWO DOGS AT ONE BOWL OF FOOD AND THEY BEGIN FIGHTING, AND IF THAT PERSON DOES NOT STOP THE TWO DOG FROM FIGHTING AND PUSHES A CONCERNED BYSTANDER AWAY SO THE FIGHT CONTINUES; IS NOT THAT PERSON JUST AS RESPONSIBILE FOR THE DEATH OF ONE DOG JUST AS MUCH AS THE KILLER DOG??? IF DON'T STOP THE FIGHT OF YOUR TWO DOGS AND PREVENT ANOTHER FROM STOPPING THE FIGHT, THAT MAKES YOU JUST AS MUCH A DOG KILLER AS THE DOG ITSELF. THE SAME SHOULD APPLY TO A HUMANS LIFE!!! RIP JEROME!!!

I am Herman daughter Jalynn. I'm just now reading this story on my father death. I'm so anger to find out that my so called use to be stepmom would do this to me and my father. I was a daddy's girl for 9 in a half years. I was only 9 when my dad died didn't know the whole story. All I can say is thanks for your prayers and if you guys knew my dad he was a wonderful man and father and idgaf if you thought that the guy who killed him was so sweet and stuff but he didn't realize that he had a daughter to care about. So all I know God has the final say on what he going to do with the guy who killed my dad. R.I.P DADDY YOU WILL STILL BE IN MY HEART FOREVER AND EVER. I LOVE YOU MUCH.
