    I hope people realize that Danny did what he had to do. and the DCSD and WCSD look at what was going on, I am not perfect but I got away from JB's lifestyle, and am lucky I did or I might be right where he is along with a crowd of other people. JB's family are hurting and I am sorry that they are but they need to let Danny go.His family is hurting also along with friend's and close neighbor's also . May God have mercy on what has happened.

    If you look up the man killed on nc doc you will see he has had a long history being arrested for drugs and other things. He was no angel.

    We all have imperfections, none of us are perfect. I knew Jamie and my heart goes out to his loved ones. I also know Danny Gwaltney and he is a wonderful person, he loves his children and grandchildren unconditionally. He has been the most loyal friend to me always. He's a very caring person with a big heart of gold. Both families are suffering because of this and you are all in my prayers. I Love you BUBBA very much.

    I hope all involved will think long and hard about the choices they made that resulted in this very sad situation.

    This is something that has happened and there is nothing that can undo it. I have known Danny for a very long time, an he has alway's treated me good and was easy going. for this to happen, something went very wrong. No one is perfect but I as a dad myself would do whatever it took to keep my girl's out of harm's way. My family's prayer's are with the Gwaltney family.

    It is just a horrible situation, for everyone involved. Both families are hurting now, something should have been done to prevent this. Danny was only being a father, defending his family and home. Our prayers are with you Danny and that all will be taken in consideration.
