    You crack me up! Law, biggest joke around here. It's all about family or who you are in with and that all the law it's ever been.

    I've read the papers, don't know either person. Wondering why aren't both men in jail/prison. Gary seems more dangerous than the other man, he came at him with a gun first. It makes me sick to my stomache to think he can do this without being punished. Who are the city officials and what are they doing?

    That 125 lb man can't just go pointing guns at people and not expect to ever get hurt. He's a felon, not even suppose to have a gun. Was he all pilled up walking across the street pointing his gun at two people? Or was he in his right frame of mind? Why isn't Gary in JAIL??? Seems like people aren't looking at things the way they happened and strings are being pulled politically. He should be locked up! It isn't safe for him to be running free!!

    It seems like both men like to carry guns. I wonder who came at who first? Who had a gun in their hand first? It's animal instinct for self peservation, why wouldn't it be man's? If people are writing about pills, then they must have done pills with them or sell them. Surely nobody would write stories. I wonder what the police report says.

    It seems like people are quick to point the finger at one person, but what did the other person do to him first. Are you forgetting that Gary's mother was trying to get him to leave the other person alone? Or are people just shooting off at the mouth not knowing what they're saying.

    Gross is a yellow belly, for shooting a 125lb man in the back. U can't get all pilled up & shoot some one, & call it self defense, because your so high, and out of your mind. Get a reality check and grow up.
