Met Vincent when I was ten. I grew up with them, His mother was our babysitter. I did not know about the robberies or his death until his grieving Brother called me today. You have never met a more giving and loving family, DON'T BLAME THEM!!! It is really sad he chose this road to go down. He had a troubled adulthood not childhood. I'm know his family is ashamed and grieving at the same time for what he did and at his ultimate demise. Please show them compassion as I know they feel it towards his "Victoms".

Can you prove the existance of God with physical evidnece? No, but God exist anyway. I have lost track over the years how many suspects have been shot in the back, "shot themselves" while handcuffed in the back of a cruiser, shot and killed by the police WHILE UNARMED, all the cop has to say is: "I say him crouch and reach for something". You are a fool if you think otherwise. Cops end up with personal issues from dealing with the same people over time. They get it in for them. When the opprotunity arrives, they take it. After all, they have a license to kill.
you can't keep track off how many, cause there have been none.

Name please... If your talking about Taylor then that was total bullshyte. That officer was the kindest man you would ever meet. It was proven several times that he shot himself in the backseat.

raise a child with morals, values, respect and religion and you wouldn't find him being a bank robber years down the road. I'd be ticked off that the criminal now left the family members to pay for his funeral. I'd bury him in a cardboard box. Family must be pretty uninvolved in his life to have not noticed the sudden flow of CASH he came into.
<quoted text>
There are many people in jail that were raised the "right" way, whatever that is, and still went the wring way. Unless you exercise co0mplete control over your children, they can and do make bad choices despite theit upbringing. Conversely not everyone that is raised poorly ends up in jail. There is no sure thing in child rearing.

Hah I love how family members of criminals try to throw blame on everyone else. Give it up, your brother was a thug. <quoted text>
I said this was my brother, he was 33 years old and not a crimminal. Thugs had not been "invented" when he died. Everybody killed handcuffed by the police are not thugs or in trouble. You are afraid, and you want to catarogize people so that you can keep track of them, but until we all are safe, no one is safe.

Anyone on here blaming the family.... Remember, a family can INFLUENCE and EDUCATE their offspring. However, they cannot CONTROL the actions of anyone. Vince was a grown man in complete control of his actions. I only know him because he came in my work a couple of weeks ago. Luckily I don't work at a bank... He was driving a 2000ish black Crown Vic with 22" wheels and "INTERCEPTOR" on the rear quarter panels in chrome vinyl letters. He told me all about buying that and a Yukon or Tahoe or something. I can almost understand someone robbing out of necessity; because they were destitute and hungry... THAT WAS NOT THE CASE. It was pure laziness and greed.

can't control children under 18, what kind of parent are you? Children under age of 18 who live under my roof obey my rules, live life as they should, have been raised to respect others and attend church weekly. For someone to say they can't control a child under 18 has some real problems themselves. It is easy to be the parent who lives their own life and lets their child do as they please but it takes a real PARENT to raise a child. <quoted text>
Oh Please! Maybe while you are looking. Lots of kids do things they shouldn't be doing. They just haven't gotten caught. Only a true fool would believe that their children never do anything wrong. It's sickening to hear all of the idiots that blame everything an adult child does on the way a child was raised. Sure that is the case sometimes, but sometimes it is not. It's hard to be humble when your perfect in every way.

I am not sure how you could summize any kind of relationship I have with anyone based one the statement that I made. I was simply stating that being a criminal isn't genetic. Stupidity, however, is. It must run in your family too.

sounds like jennifer better join I Know One with that mental help. She thinks he brother was handcuffed but not in trouble. She wants to blame a cop for shooting him when the idiot shot himself. As previously said family members of criminals are the funniest <quoted text>
For the record, I am not a family member. I simply indicated that being a criminal isn't genetic. How in the world does that = me being family with mental issues?? I think this only holds firm my theory of stupidity being genetic.

Melissa, you are dumber than the first boob that said I was related. Get your fat rear end off the couch, quit eating your haagen dass ice cream, and really READ a flipping book. You obviously know nothing of genetics and know nothing of mental illness.

I never met Vincent W. I never will. I have discouraged my children from being around people with his kind of nature. But that doesn't mean his family should be verbally slaughtered for choices he made. It will be a very sad Christmas for this family AND HIS YOUNG CHILD.

In fact, I hope the family still has some of this money in hiding and his children will get it in the years to come. Yep, I said it. I hope they have it in hiding! That is what all you holier than thou jerks deserve. For the criminal to have the last word is probably more than you can stand. HA FREAKING HA!
