    I'm sure glad to see that Mays was at least taken to jail for the shooting, here in Rockcastle Co. you can just shoot someone down and leave them laying in the road to die and never ever go to jail for one second, that's what happened to my neighbor in 2006, and the shooter Derel Griffin never went to jail period. Then Griffin moved to Pulaski Co. where he shot over 50 rounds with a assault rifle into a house that had children in it. This was the fourth shooting he has done and is still on the streets. Do we not live in a screwed up county? Glad to see that not every county is like Rockcastle and Pulaski. Our law s----!! They protect the criminal not the victim. That why Paul Harvey said " IF YOU WANT TO KILL SOMEONE AND GET AWAY WITH IT DO IT IN ROCKCASTLE COUNTY". That is so true.

WE appreciate all of the prayers and support that the community and friends have wished cory. It is my hope that Mr.Mays is found so he can get some help and there is not an angry armed teenager lose on the streets. PLEASE PRAY FOR CORY
