I think that more research should be done to look into Adam Kelly Ward's (#999525) case.

What the hell are you thinking? This crazy son of a bitch killed someone for nothing. He was seen doing it so what more proof do they need? This crazy bastard has been in trouble since he started school. I would guess you are some time of family member since you make this statement but deal with it he killed an innocent man and now they will kill him. To bad it won't be by being hung or by being shot so many times as he did PeeWee Walker. I would like to hear why you think they should look into it more.

Agreed. I was at that trial and there was absolutely no question of the man's (and I use the term loosely) guilt.

Code enforcement officers rarely think about who they may be dealing with.

The city of Commerce code enforcement office got really into harassing people for a while. I think this terrible, tragic occurrence has given them a new look at how to handle things.

why would you even consider that more research should be done on this case. This guy killed someone who was doing his job. It is bad enough to kill another human being but to kill someone in the line of duty is even worse. They put their life on the line everyday for us & yet people are supposed to just get away with it. Walker was doing his job & trying to clean up the city & what did he get from it. Death. Ward needs to die & I believe just like "crazy" too bad he aint getting shot like he shot Walker.

Sorry, Overbearing, but you sound like once again you are putting the blame on Walker for getting killed.
Walker was just doing his job, he wasn't harrassing Ward or anybody else, and he shouldn't have to "think about" who he may have been dealing with. If Ward legitimately believed there was a problem with Walker, he should have told somebody.
But in this case Ward, and according to trial testimony his father, mistakenly and paranoically believed that just about everybody in Commerce - if not the rest of the world - were out to get them. Great family life there.

You must be out of your ever-lovin' mind. Screw that son of a bitch Ward - fry him tomorrow and do him and the rest of the world some good. I don't care what the code enforcement officer did; he didn't deserve to die. I'd imagine that isn't your point; but, whatever point you had/have is lost in your delivery.

Ward does deserve what he gets. The point is there was an "attitude" existing at the time, and no one ever considered what could happen. It has been a wake up call to handle things in a more professional/safer manner so to speak.

If someone is a known problem, take a policeman with you when you go on his property to take pictures.

Some enjoyed toying with this family, not ever thinking that something like this could have happened. I'm not defending the family or the boy for his actions, in any way.

You should think about who you are dealing with. Your life may depend on it.

Again, Overbearing makes it sound as if Walker should have known that Ward would gun him down in cold blood, or that it was somehow his responsibility to assume that Ward would be armed when Walker was TAKING PICTURES OF HIS HOUSE FROM THE STREET.
In short, Ward had absolutely no legitimate reason for feeling threatened by Walker and, despite previous run-ins with the family, should not have to assume that Ward would empty a clip into him on a whim.
It was not Walker's fault. Period.

Wow... you are all living in Gods own country right? Sure sounds like there's a lot of forgiving and mercy there - NOT.

I'm not saying that he's innocent or should be let loos.

But all this "fry him - kill him - that-son-of-a-bitch" says a lot more about you than anyone else.

My deepest sympathy to the victims family.

what if Ward had a menatl illness? Would that be a legitimate reason to feel threatened by a stranger that is taking photos of your home? An untreated mental illness at that?

He was the subject of mental evaluations, both for sanity and mental retardation, and was found legally sane and not mentally challenged. If for some reason he had been found to have a mental illness, I personally would hold his parents accountable. Someone had to tell him where the gun was and how to work it.

I personally knew Adam from High School, and I will clearly state that he infact has a mental issue. Legally the dr. may state that in the time of accurance he was in his "right" mind, he isnt capable of being as "right" as you and I. he stabbed a kid in our class our freshman year for absolutly nothing, in the bathrooms, killed animals as a smaller child for the "fun" of it....so therefore to say he is mental is putting it lightly in my eyes, so I agree he deserves every lil thing he has coming to him, but May God have mercy on his sole.....if can be
wow

the stabbing in the bathrooms was with a #2 pencil for cryin out loud.... it wasnt even with a knife.... so yes I think he has some "untreated" issues goin on but on the families behalf, y'all shoulda done something with Adam along long long time ago. He may have been a different person today if you, his "drill instructing" father would have taken more concerns in instead of acting as if killing cats for the hell of it and running down black kids in the road with his bike, and stabbing people in the bathroom with pencils, cussing teachers and throwing stuff at old ladies heads was award winning behavior.....and prasing him when he did things like this...so I blame the Parent of this disturbed "man"

If I understand it correctly, he was convicted and served out his probation with no problems ... I think.
