Sad..but true..he'll eventually walk the streets and probably sooner than later. Don't blame the last name. Blame the screwed up Fulton county.

Your full of s**t. They will confine him in a mental institution. If he ever gets sane again then he will stand trial.

I'm glad Kathy wasn't home. I think they should send him to the army and let him fight. Ain't nothing wrong with him if he want to shoot and kill that's where he need to be.

Tommy is schizophrenic! Want to blame someone? Blame the institution that released him that very day of the murder. He obviously wasn't stable. It's a disease. Instead of bad mouthing Tommy, why don't u try praying for him, his mother Carole, and Murphy's family? If u don't know Tommy, u don't know what ur talking about.

Some people need to think of how they'd feel about Tommy if it had been THEIR family member he MURDERED. seems to me he was a spoiled and troubled kid who didn't get their way and lashed out but only this time he (hopefully) will pay the concequences. No one deserves to be done that way..except child molesters, child abusers, and child murderers. Just how I feel about it all.

It is so easy to judge when we don't know the realities and intricate details of stories like these. I won't pretend that I don't understand where u all are coming from because up until now that is how I have looked at cases like these-with ignorance and judgement. I guess when it affects you so closely you tend to see things in a different light. While I know this is a tragic case, I also still care for Tommy because I knew him when he was stable. I know things that went on between Murphy and Tommy and Carole that none of u do nor will ever. Let me reiterate that I do believe this is a punishable act, but who are we to dictate that? God says vengeance is mine and I pray that God deals with Tommy in the way that will benefit his soul. The voices tommy hears are real. The things he sees are really there. I've been there while it was happening. Nobody can imagine what it's like. He who is without sin cast the first stone. If u judge one another according to another's sin then the verdict on Judgement Day for you will be unsatisfying. Judge not lest ye be judged. This will be my last post. Thank you and may God have mercy on you for passing such critical judgment on one of his children.
