I am one of his victims and he is actually charged with 2nd degree murder and aggravated assault because I was shot the night that Robert Earl Thomas was shot and people always talking and don't know what they talking about. He didnt go home and get a pistol his pistol was on his side the whole night. There were 15 children and 13 adults in that house the night and he was shooting into the house after he apologized for the fight. He was locked up on a 5 million dollar bond and the prosecutors told us he has rights two and his bond was outragous. They lowered his bond too time and he got out and now he's killed again so who fault is it anyway....If I was the Yancey family I would be bringing charges on the city for letting him slip threw the cracks at least thats what we were told when he was released that their caseload was to high and some of the cases just slip threw the cracks!

For the record you and your mother had left the party because your father was acting a fool and made her made so how do you know what happened after that....Before the arguement even happened we called your mothers cell phone and asked her to come and get your father because we know how stupid he can get and because he had been walking around the party all night showing his gunn that he had on his side which was a 357. Don't try to justify what he did, and what about the man he killed in December after he got out...you went into the house and got the gun for him that time so if I was the people in that neighborhood I would have you arrested as well. I had my children in that house and any of them could have been killed I wish Rob was shooting back then their would be two dead and not one. And for your information there was no shoot out there was a fair fight and Eric got his ass beat and got mad and he was not left for dead because he got up and apologized for starting the fight befor we went back into the house. I lost my finger because of your father and it ain't over because I am going to fight until I get what I deserve JUSTICE!

And I pray God he never gets out this time....How you get out of jail on bond and then 9months later you shoot and kill somebody else yeah I think your right Junior he is a really good person and has a good heart I guess his job is cleaning the street of all the black people instead of fixing cars.........run tell that.

What difference does it make where I got shot the point is I got shot and my six kids were in the house and they could have been dead and gone. I got shot in the hand and had to have my finger amputated Im a licensed hairstylist so now what do I do?? Because of your stupid life decisions everyone else has to pay!!!

And for the record OJ told me he seen you in there and you said tell new york wife im sorry for shooting her. And I forgive you but I can never forget what you took from me and my kids you tramitized them kids for the rest of their lives. They had to endure that and watch rob die right in front of them my baby was only 4 weeks old and she could have been taken from me. Then you took my finger I will never be the same, but the God I serves says to forgive I do but I want you to know that the only person that can judge you is God. We have never had any problem and I cant til this day believe you are that same man that came to my house but you are. I pray for you and your family and i hope you tell your son to do different than what he has seen you do over the years beating on him and his mother. And then Franks family My God you have no remorse for human life or your own. You shot that man in cold blood and now you back behind bars again. Thats were you will stay this time and if you do get out I pray for the city of memphis.

First of all you still have your other fingers that are usable. Second, you're bless that your kids and yourself are still living. Looks like you need to get over it. Although, the victim's family lost a love one, the other family lost a love one as well because that person is locked up.

Get over what exactly.... the man that was killed was my family as well... I am blessed to be alive and my children are blessed but that doesn't mean you forget and don't do anything! I will keep speaking out because we can't keep letting people do this to our family and our friends. You have no idea the damage and trauma my children are enduring in this whole ordeal. Yes they are alive but they are suffering from nightmares, and moodswings, and more.... when Eric Williams is sentenced to life without parole we will then start to "GET OVER IT" but never will we forget!
