Johnny griffin, also of Pathfork, was flown to Holston Valley Medical Center in Tennessee.

His condition is not known.

Hunley was arrested and charged with assault.

    You dont pray everyday to be in the book of life . When you are saved your name in written in the book of life . Everyone has done wrong and we expect to be punished for it .We being humans can only be pushed so far. Yes its sad to be labeled. We write our own label most of the time. He does need Jesus its true. People also need to defend themselves . God gave us two hands to do so. I work will work ,defend and take care of my family because that is what we are called to do.

    HOW WOULD YOU FEEL TO BE LABELED LIKE JOHNNIE GRIFFIN IS, YOU WOULDN'T LIKE IT WOULD YOU ALL. YOU DON'T KNOW THE LIFE OR THE TROUBLE HE'S BEEN THROUGH. HOW CAN YOU JUDGE AND LABEL SOMEONE AND NOT LOOK AT YOURSELF AND EVERYTHING YOUR NOT DOING RIGHT. THY SHALL NOT JUDGE, FOR THERE IS ONLY ONE JUDGE TO ANWSER TO AND THAT IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE BEGINNING AND THE END. WE'RE ALL SINNERS! WE SIN EVERYDAY, EVERYONE OF US! SO STOP AND LOOK AT YOURSELF AND YOUR LIFE BEFORE YOU JUDGE ANOTHER. VOILENCE ISN'T THE ANWSER. HAVING THE LORD AND PRAYING HARD EVERYDAY TO BE IN THE LAMBS BOOK OF LIFE TO PASS THROUGH THOSE PEARLY GATES IS WHAT WE ALL SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT. FOR ALL SINNERS THAT DO NOT SEEK THE LORD AND GET WASHED IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB BEFORE THE END OF TIME WILL TAKE THEIR PART IN THE PITS OF HELL AND BURN FOREVER MORE! MAY GOD BLESS MR. GRIFFIN AND ALL OF YOU THAT FIND FAULTS IN EVERYBODY ELSE BUT YOURSELF!!!!!

    in reguards to jimmy's comment. I think ur wrong Mr. Hunley should never have been arrested.Who is to say it was attemted murder.It very well could have been self defense who knows? But I can assure u if it had been my property they were on stealing stuff from the charge would have been murder not just attemted.People r tired of the thieves running over people watching and lurking around looking for something to pick up and take i don't care what it is if it isn't urs leave it be.Let them get a job and work for their habit.

    Stop and think uf it was your child, would it still be the right thing to do? Just remember this thief also has a family and a soul.

    Mr.Hunley is not no hero because a hero would not shoot somebody over being on the land.A hero would just called the poilce and not put someones life on the line.Even tough he/she dont know him they should pray but for people that thinks it was right for shooting someone over that come look at the land.
