Listen here non biased u cant sit here and say you knew both parties if you dont even know that 4 of those 5 children were Chris' kids. And yes he raised all five of those kids, there was no recently shacking up with a babies momma. If your gonna act like you know these people make sure you really fuckin know these people. As for Mark being a good person you're all full of shit, fear and guns dont mix, if he was that scared to leave his house without his pistol, he shouldnt have left his house. He got lucky to get 12-15. He was definately no angel. Ive seen Mark sell drugs, ive even seen Mark do drugs. Ive been to Marks old house with the bushmaster AR-15 rifle laying on the table, ive seen Marks money counter on the table beside it, and I also the boards latched onto the back of the front door. Now you tell me if he was living in fear or not. Mr. know it all do you need all that at your house, if your that scared do you think you should own a gun. Shit ive even worked around Mark, I know how he is. If mark and his parents were so close and such a good family why would he just blow his dad off when I asked how he had been, because yes I do know Mark Sr. Im sure he was a good kid growing up, werent we all. Ill bet he wouldve done anything for you Chris wouldve done the exact same for me. Were all good hearted people until we turn, and trust me he has turned. He was no more than a dopey the last time I saw him about 5 days before it happened tryin to pay Chris with a jar of quarters. But I guarantee he has changed back to good ol Mark, u always do when you dont have a choice. Now hes a changed man, THANK THE LORD, and if you believe that your just as ignorant as all these other people who have no idea what the fuck they're talkin about. Hes changed because hes gone for 12-15 and has nothing else right now, weve all seen it dozens of times. But by the end of the week Mark will have a new boyfriend, and I hope he thinks of this every second of every day of every month of every year. But in the meantime Dana should pop a civil suit and try to get into some of this Thomas Pipe money.

Meggy, I 100% completely agree with you! I am truly upset about Mark being convicted! I believe that this family will get what they deserve in the long run for lying, and covering up what Chris did or was planning to do! To be honest I think Mark should try to appeal the court decision! I hate that this family sees thier son/husband as an angel. It disgusts me that they can get away with buying a shot gun and him not supposed to be having one. But Mark has a gun and it is completely LEGAL!!! I know Mark didnt have any intention to kill. He was scared for his life. You know words can't express how disgusted I am with this! It makes me mad that they dont bring into account the threatS that Chris made to Mark before that incident! Or that Chris was picking up a shotgun!
What is with you rednecks that believe you need to, or think it's o.k. to carry around a gun? The only people here that carry guns ( other than in their business or home) are drug dealers, gang members, criminals and cops. Which one of these was Thomas? That's right he's a murder! He tazered a woman, dosn't that tell you people what he's capable of?

I think most of you are crazy. Mark went to Chris's business and killed him! It is that simple. I would think all of you would be pleased with 12-16 years for murder. If Mark was so scared for his life, why did he go the Chris's busniess that day? If you were scared of someone would you go to there business or home to confront them? No, you would not - you would stay the heck away from them.

I have read all of these comments above from friends and family of Mark Thomas. You are reacting to the verdict and to a comment I made in January. I was angry at his parents, my son was murdered and the day of my son's memorial service, Thomas was released. I knew his parents got him out. I resented them for a long time, I don't know them but it disturbed me.
I have had my moments I thought I hated Mark. I have had moments I blamed his parents. I have moments I am angry at God.
This past week, I saw Mark's mother, I saw pain in her face, it did not bring me pleasure, I wasn't expecting it to. We are both in dark tunnels, she can see a light at the end of hers, mine is dark.
My son and his wife Dana were raising five children, four are his, one child he has raised since that child was a toddler. I too do not set that child aside as different from my biological grandchildren. That child calls me Grandma just like they all do.

I think its time to drop it and move on. Those who see Chris' side, mourn for him and his family. Those who see Mark's, do the same. None of us will ever know exactly what happened. All we'll know is that it is a tragedy.Everyone thinks that they are right but even if one of us is, what is it going to change? Chris is dead and Mark is going to prison. I think right now us supporting the families, whichever side you're on, is where the energy needs to go. I will be taking my advice and move on.

Hey all you blind fools. Bet you didn't know this..... 11 out 12 jurors chose 1ST DEGREE!!!!!!! 1ST DEGREE!!!! Only you blind fools would believe BULLSHIT like that crap that was said in that courtroom during trial. "Mark Stephen Thomas" was so close to spending the rest of his sorryass life in prison. Which by the way is exactly what the piece of shit deserves. But, 12 years, maybe more...... He'll be so jacked up when he gets out, his life is DONE!!! All those criminals are gonna like his pretty hair and soft hands!!!! Too bad there won't be anyone to carry on the "Thomas" name. I have never seen someone so heartless, the whole family. If it was my son who had murdered someone, I would feel so terrible for the victim and family. For coming from the backround that family came from I am shocked at the hertlessness. Oh, well, it's over now, they are both where they belong, Heaven and PRISON!!!!!!

Not sure where you get your info from, but 4 of those 5 kids that you keep referring to were his. 2 from his first marriage and 2 from Dana. The other one was Dana's from her first marriage. Just to let you know!:-)
