I know what went down that night and if most of the people the actual news, they would know that this kids future is what prisons are made for. He has absolutely no discipline when it comes to anger and hitting women and violence. Kind of makes you wonder what kind of dad he was raised under. Here are the actual facts:

1. I know the guy, his picture should be beside the definition of white trash.
2. The future looks pretty bleak for the Kardos family if this is what your raising in the world.(His records show a pretty long history of beating women and violent assaults)
3. Vietnam is irrelevant to what this guy did, He tried to beat a woman to death who was holding his baby in front of his 85 year old grandmother and then runs and hides when it becomes time to pay for what he did. Does that sound like a war hero to you? It sounds more like a scum sucking coward to me.
4. He will see what kind of man he is, especially where he is headed.(hint: they don't like guys who assault women)

Awesome job by all departments! No one got hurt and houses didn't
have burn down to get one idiot looser white trash to jail. The next
time the county budget comes up for a public hearing I plan on being there to remind the town folk just how professional our Sheriffs department is! We need to support our first responders needs!
Yes they did an awesome job I'm glad no one got hurt in the end...however calling Jim white trash is a bit too much. I know the Kardos family personally and yes Jim has a past but he needs help not blame..he needs encouragment from others to get help. Rochelle and Bill raised all three of children very well just because Jim has stepped out of line doesn't make them bad parents!! Jim controls his thoughts and actions not his parents. As you see nobody is perfect we all have flaws.. some say its a waste of tax payers money but now maybe Jim will receive the help he's needing for his anger!!! I've witnessed him being angry and its never pretty! I'm actually upset he's putting he's family through this his mother nor PREGNANT sister need the drama nor publicity.

Good point! Nobody else in jail has ever assaulted a woman.

Where do you people come up with these 39 cent thoughts? Just about everybody in prison prides themselves on just how well they have beat up some girl in the past.

No, try blaming the man himself. He is 23, not some 15 year old acting out.

In regards go my previous comment about Jim needing help...

I just read an article stating the police attempted to taze him twice while bringing him BEER AND CIGARETTES!?!!?? Giving that man alcohol DID NOT HELP THE SITUATION!(Seeing that they got him out later once they lost contact without such tactics...that was a very poor decision.)

What does a relative having died serving our country have to do with this young man's actions yesterday? I don't know and won't even pretend to know why he did what he did, but what his relatives were or are have no bearing on what Mr. Kardos did and should have no bearing on whatever punishment he receives. I'm very glad the standoff did end peacefully and that Mr. Kardos is alive today and all of the police officers who responded came through without injury. Hope the young woman is okay. So sad for their child.
Oh Really

he is still a loser for wasting our tax dollars on some "emotional hurt" i bet last night cost us thousands of dollars i dont fell sorry for him have fun in jail....of and hitting women is fine??? logic you have none
First of all, I am a woman, and I will tell you although I DO NOT support violence against "persons" per say and I do say "persons" not just females, because the truth is women are also more than capable of being abusive physically & emotionally to men. As a woman, I am appalled at the way society has over looked this aspect. Men are not always the bad guys. You are foolish to think that a man should always stand there and take abuse from females who know that all they have to do is cry foul and the man gets slammed without question. I am not saying this is the case in this story, however, please remember, as a woman myself, I am reminding people that women can be and have been abusive towards men, not only physically but emotionally and verbally abusive and manipulative. As far as this old school thought of never hit a girl, to which I say, "never hit ANYONE and that includes females hitting, slapping etc. knowing that 9 times out 10 a man will not hit back. Now, bottom line, treat others as you would want to be treated, do not emotionally manipulate, verbally or physically abuse anyone being female OR male.

The Kardos name is being ruined by the actions of James. The Kardos family has done so many good things Charlottesville. Just because James is a screw up does not give anyone the right to talk about his family. They are good hard working people. Yes, James is a screw up.We all know that. He will go to jail for what he did to his girl friend. And that he did it in front of my grandmother and his 1 year old child makes me sick. He is a adult and needs to be held responsible for what he did.. And hope the court throws him under the jail for this. Maybe if they had locked him up for the other things hes done this would not have happened. We do not agree with his actions.

Yes he is a loser.. But to blame his family is stupid like you. H4e is a grown adult. If the courts didn't just slap his wrist, he would have been in jail where he should have been along time ago. But you can not fault a family for a bad seed. I guess everyone in your family is perfect. He needs to pay for what he did but he is 23 not 13 so leave his family out of it.. They want him in jail also

His parents failed to a good job raising him. His teachers did a lousy job teaching him. Lots of blame for Fluvanna.

It's not the state's job to raise your, or anyone else's kid. Reading, writing, and arithmetic are learned in schools, right and wrong is learned at home. Parents are the examples they give their children for relationships,and many, many other life skills.

Mine was in response to 'answers' who holds the view that the state is responsible for everything. Kids that have had great parents still go astray now and again, despite the statistics. It wasn't a judgement on the parents or family.

Ok, wait a minute. I'm reading here that this guy has had run ins with the law before? If this is true then he has had his chance for help. Probably more than once. The heck with the nice little tactics. Put his butt in jail and keep him there. It doesn't mean a hill of beans to me who's fault it is. He's an adult.
Duh

Yeah, like running in a house with a crazy man shooting a gun is better?
