    Everyone makes mistakes. Neither one of you had the best life. God forgives, and people move on if they can't. We still believe in you "Weazy". You can't take it back, but I hope you learn from it. Mother's this is what you see when you don't love your kids, and it hurts. Prayers for both of these families.

    The 21 year old looks younger than the 17 year old. My GOD Hinnant has had a rough life. They sure they got the ages right.

    When will we get back to the day of an Eye for an Eye and tooth for tooth?Thats the only thing going to stop cowards like this.Prophet if I were a judge I would have My Gavel clinched in my hand thinking clearly and say death penalty for the shooter.

    How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it. No man can think clearly when his fists are clenched.
