Its so funny how ppl talk so bad about the DeLeon family. But those ppl don't ask nothing from no one. They walk around town. And nobody tells them to their face to get out of town. Ppl just leave the situation alone. Y'all don't know how Damian, or the Gutierrez families feel. So just GROW UP

The DeLeon's need to leave Mathis! Nobody likes y'all here!!! The DeLeons are nothing but trouble around here! What's next? The DeLeon's assault a little leaguer for missing a ground ball of striking out? Get the hell out of town DeLeons!!! Nobody wants y'all in Mathis!! Go back to Mexico where you belong
Truthfully, I have to laugh at this ridiculous post. Obviously, you are one of those people that DOES NOT have any intestinall fortitude to confront a really DeLeon face to face. If you were, you would let any of the DeLeon's know to their face. LMFAO. Hide vehind social media coward. LOL

I have known the DeLeon's for many years and they have never asked anybody for a single thing. They typically mind their own business and try to live life as best as they can. People who don't know them, always make assumptions that are backed up by nothing. Empty facts, always cause problems.

Don't open a can of worms that you are not prepared to close. Leave these families alone. Both sides have suffered enough.

I am not from Mathis, nor do I know either family. I may get criticized for my comment, but I wanted to post it anyway because it amazes me, or rather ceases to amaze me, how unstable and flimsy the judicial system is... After reading the story, which, by the way, I read several publications, both in print and on video, and none seemed to explain what the line of defense was, but anyhow, after reading about this tragedy, I wondered if the same verdict would have been handed down had it been a police officer or other official of authority that had gone in to investigate the source of the gunshots, instead of a parolee. Somehow, I think the outcome would have been very different.

I would hope if a police officer responded to the call, he would of had his lights on and would have followed protocol to disarm the individual with the wespon. I would also expect the police officer to use his vehicle as a baracade in order to prevent injury to himself by the gunman. To be judged by twelve of our peers that have been given the facts, is the correct way to handle this kind of matters. Issues become worse when people decide to interpret the law on their own and don't have a understanding of the law.

If you live in Mathis, then you are the same as everybody else. If I could, I would burn that town to the ground. Half of the people in the town are crooks and low lifes. A quarter of them talk trash and don't do anything to help. The last quarter just don't give a crap and are to old to care about how Mathis has turned out. For those of you that were keeping up with the math, that added up to 100% of the population.

Unless you know every single person in Mathis you should keep your mouth shut. There's some good people there that do try.

As I expected, a comment from somebody that is portraying a sense of Patriotism for their town. To bad, there is not enough of you to make a change within that town. I'm sure a 100 years so Mathis was a decent place to raise a family and feel safe in your home's. Unfortunately, that's not the case these days. Good luck with your positive outlook.

"Ritchiiiiiiiieeeeeeeh! " La Bamba. I saw this on a friends fb and im sure if you are old enough, you've heard it before. Here goes, "If the glove don't fit, you must acquit." Justice was served. They went through the proper channels and a jury of his peers saw it fit to submit a verdict of not guilty. Case closed.

I agree I wish there was more positive people, unfortunately we are out numbered by the ones that have no pride & surely don't care. BUT that doesn't mean we'll give up.

Just cuz you did two sissy years at a garza unit doesn't mean your a real badass. Don't trespass and mind your own business and you won't get shot.

he didn't just go to a Garza unit.. 2 years? You're full of crap, he did more than 2. He never ever claimed to be a badass. Don't trespass? His family has always been told they can go into the family's yard, his family would always help Alex and Lucinda, Janelle and Brandy would babysit his little sisters, Richard was in both of their weddings, those two families would come together for bbqs, they were more than just neighbors, they grew up together, they considered each other family. I'm sorry, but if your screaming for help, you're allowing help to come. Damien admitted to strangling Janelle in front of the jury! They caught them both in a lie! Had Damien been a man and been judged by a judge and not a jury, he would be in jail.

its also called the 6th amendment, his right to a jury trial and no one else to make that decision for him. Good for him, it's good to be smart.
