How does David Smith get four years off his sentence? This is a different crime. They will both be very old men when they get out, if they live that long. Amazing how David's Mother brought up his 4 year old son. Seems to me that if you truly loved and cared for your son, you would have changed your behavior a long time ago. People like this think they are owed something because they had bad events in their lives and think it is okay to steal, lie, and kill those who are innocent. Thank you to the judge and jury for getting these two pieces of garbage off the street where they can no longer hurt anyone else. And for their supporters, get your heads out of your rear ends and wake up. They are getting what they deserve.

Losers got what they deserved. Their families cant seem to comprehend what they did. What the hell were they thinking doing a drug deal on Lake Lizzie dr.? In a backyard? Its a very open land area, not houses on top of one another. They stuck out like a sore thumb. Unfortunately, an innocent woman died but thanks to their stupidity they were caught and probably prevented their future crime spree with more victims. Good riddance.

Garbage? I think the two '' concerned citizens '' above are garbage. David smith was sent to prison at 15 years old for cocaine poss and gun charges. There were no programs offered for him like most teenagers. A 15 year old child in prison with murders and child molesters, 4 years later released with nothing, no help, no transitioning, just here you go your on your own. You people make me freaking sick, you honestly believe a 20 year old kid who got 60 years for witnessing a murder he had no part in deserved that sentence. My brother did not shoot anybody, yes he was went to a drug deal hoping to just buy some weed and it turns into this freak show. How dare you comment on a situation you truly know nothing about, It is amazing how small minded you people are.. just imagine if this was your son, daughter, brother or sister. My brother is a wonderful person, who got caught up at the wrong place and wrong time. David will be home soon, his appeal is on the way!

You're pathetic. Two brothers in jail because they can't follow the rules and prefer to take from others rather than provide for themselves the legal way! They all are exactly where they belong!
You are delusional Miss.

You'll never get it. God will see you on your judgment day, we were not made to be perfect and some of those mistakes are far worse than others but who are you to judge anybody? Yeah, both of my brothers are in prison, what does that mean? There are innocent people across the world wrongly imprisoned every single day! The problem is our society is ran by people like you, who think throwing somebody in jail away from society and throwing away the key solves all the issues. Maybe for a moment, but what about this persons children or child who grow up fatherless causing so many emotional damages, there minds don't think the same, and then here we are in the same situation 18 years from now,a young man getting caught up with the wrong people having no sense of direction in prison, it is a never ending cycle and will continue to be so until something is done to change what are youth is being exposed to. I'm guessing since you know about both of my brothers in prison, did you know that the first and only program that David Smith was ever sent to was shut down early due to a staff member letting her husband come in and stab multiple offenders for her lunch being taken out of the employee fridge..... And i'm assuming you must also know that it was said in court that David Smith could not have possibly shot Patrick Bacon because Patrick said that he was shot from the driver side door as he was talking to David smith whom was sitting in the back seat on the passenger side... hmmm food for thought. if anyone is delusional it is you, it is very sad to see all of this happening but nobody wants to make a change. Nobody wants to do anything about it Like I said God will see you on your judgment day and wish all the best to you.

" Yeah, both of my brothers are in prison, what does that mean?" Hmm, let's see. I believe it means they belong there as said by a jury of their peers!!!!I

don't know either one of your brothers and don't care to. Also, don't care to hear about how "innocent" you choose to believe they are. Like I said they are both where they belong. Blame it on society all you want. They weren't brought up in "the hood"and there is no excuse for trying to take from others like a total scumbag. Get out and get a job or go to school to better yourself. It's nobody's fault but their own, made from their own choices. Don't flatter yourself by threatening me about judgement day and what your God will do to me. You're just as pathetic as your brothers. Clueless too!

Funny you should say "imagine if this was your son, daughter, brother or sister". The woman who was shot in the head for going outside to check on what was happening out on her own property was my sister. So I do not have to imagine, I live with the reality every day. Just as you will have to. What David and Cody did affected many more people than just themselves. No one wants to believe a family member can commit such a horrible crime but the truth is, it happens every single day. And as I said in my previous comment, both David and Cody got exactly what they deserve.
