for the record, this was not an intentional shooting. Bruce Emerick did not kill Jeanine Downing. A struggle took place when Emerick was attempting to take the gun away from Downing who said she was just going to kill herself. Never did she say just shoot me. Bruce Emerick is NOT a killer...

I AGREE! THIS WAS NOT MURDER. SHE PULLED THE GUN AT HERSELF, AND BRUCE TRIED TO GRAB THE GUN OFF HER WHEN THE GUN DISCHARGED. DEFINATLY NOT MURDER.

Bruce could never have done this on purpose, he loved her. He's a good kid and this is insane what they're doing to him.

This is some B.S. Brucey is NOT a murderer.I was there 20 minutes before it all happened. We were just hanging out, watching the movie," Over the Hedge". Jen Jacobs, the female witness, thats the person that should be in jail, shes the one that got Brucey the alcohol even tho she knew he was only 19. And if you guys knew Jeanine like I do then you should already know that she was suicidal. She was one of my best friends so I know what Im talking about. But she still had some problems and attempying suicide was one of them. No one really knows what really happened because Jen Jacobs statement had changed 3 times since this incident. And the police won't believe anyone except her. Shes the one that belongs in jail not Brucey. Everybody that knew those 2 knew they were very much in love and that Brucey would NEVER do anything to hurt her. This is some B.S... No one knows how long Bruceys even gonna be in there. Thanks to that Stupid C*** Bag...And no, he did not meet her at the door with a baseball bat and the gun. The gun was in their bedroom leaning against the closet..dont even ask where the baseball ball came from...Brucey didnt even have one...So for you that KNOW that Brucey is NOT a killer...Please come to his hearing...HE NEEDS ALL THE SUPPORT HE CAN GET!!! PLEASE HELP BRUCEY...HIS PARENTS ARE HAVING A VERY DIFFICULT TIME PAYING ALL THESE COURT COSTS SO PLEASE SEND DONATIONS TO : RICK AND DONNA EMERICK

some people would like to make people feel unwanted for the most of us we would like to make people feel like they are somebody we all have done thing that were not in the best of our interest but on the other hand we would ask God forgiveness. no one is perfect who is perfect cast the first stone.

No body will ever know the absolute truth except for him, her and God. What was observable beforehand tho was Bruce's character. He always seemed to embrace the "thug" lifestyle wearing baggy clothes and pants halfway down his legs, tattooing tear drops on his face ( a very common prison tat representing you've killed before) and alcohol and narcotic abuse. One has to ask was he settling himself up for a tribulation like this? Sort of like a self fulfilling prophecy?(everyone knows the old saying "you play with fire you're going to get burned). No matter what you're doing in life mistakes will be made and sometimes those mistakes have awful consequences. However, the worst mistakes can be avoided if you realize what path in life you are walking and learn to take the high road instead of the low. Regardless of what happened on that fateful night I hope Bruce has chosen a different path and stopped embracing that "thug" lifestyle that took him down the wrong road to begin with. Prayers for every and anyone that was affected by this tragic event.
