randall didnt deserve any of this. if you knew the two boys he killed, you would have done the same. they were all three good friends of mine & they just got mixed up in a bunch of stuff. but, randall had to make his decision, to take their lives or lose his. what would anyone do?? anybody would have done the same thingg. i just think randall has spent too much time in prison as it is & he should have gotten off on self defense!!

Really? You are going to take up for your brother no matetr what, but calling people who are alrady dead names is beyond low. Deserves a metal? huh? He derseves to be locked up and never get any phone calls or to see any of his family. And that still doesnt even come close to what those boys family have went through and still are going through

it's called breaking and entering? I thought a person had the right to defend themselves under those conditions?

I hate to tell you but no one broke in no where, so therefore its not called self defense. Get a clue.

I'm sorry I didn't relize that you had the police report. Oh wait you didn't. People need to stop running their mouth when they dont know what they are talking about. HE is locked up for a reason. At least his family can go and see him. So please stop posting stuff when you don't know what your talking about. Thanks

Sorry to tell ya but how the hell do you justify self defense when you shoot someone in the back?? that's NOT self defense, that's MURDER by a f*cking COWARD!! He knew he couldn't go toe to toe with either one of them without getting his @ss handed to him on a silver platter, so that's why he shot them like the b!tchhe was born & bred to be.

I have read ever single post reguarding this situation, and seems to me that this young boy 20yrs old got a raw deal, wonder why his lawyer did not ask for a change of venue, also seems the two boys killed had an awful lot of being a bad ass attituded, seems as tho their family friends and love ones cannot except that their bad ass attitude got the best of them, don't seem like these familys have learned a very vualable lesson, they keep making the same threats trying to be bad asses, i for one don't know anyone involved in this situation, was having to do a project on bulling and came across this topix, i think i would like to know more of the truth about what really happened that night, did anyone give a statement that was actually there? Maybe this 20 year old man should receive a new trial, just a thought.

The truth is that someone was eventually gonna kill those two boys. They thought they could do or say anything to anyone without anything happening. Randall made a decision that he was not going to be their next victim. These two boys were adults at the time of their deaths, but had they been taught better instead of being encouraged to be heathens, then they might still be here. To "CINDY"...I hope you can show this as an example for your project: BULLYING DOES NOT PAY OFF IN THE END.
