    This is absolutely disgusting to hear. I cannnot understand how a jury can take the fact that a coward ended a man's life without reason and justified that somehow. What is going on in this world? RIP Cliff. You are much better than this p.o.s and we will fight as best as possible to see that this type of unjustice does not happen again.

    What was this jury thinking? One person is dead and another is wounded.This is murder and he should have been convicted.I hope there will be another trial and I will volunteer to be on that jury.My heart goes out to Cliff's family.

    I am not believing this...who is on the jury? Thank you Marty for the memoral myspace page for Cliff. I had no idea until my sis brought to my attention. I know AT too but did not put it together since I have been out of the loop.

    The only reason he didn't kill John is that he was on top of him beating the hell out of him. He shot him where and how he could. And he doesn't remember any of this.If he didn't remember any of this. Why did he run and hide? He left his brothers, his wife. He knows exactly what he did that night. His wife testified and she did appear to be a very good person. My heart does go out to his family. They are suffering too. I get that. But none of this history changes the fact that my friend is dead. Hopefully there will be justice for Cliff in the long run. How could this be anything but 1st degree murder in anyone's eyes? Why this is not a death penalty case just baffles me. If he is so crazy. He sure as hell doesn't need to be on the streets...

    He is in custody. He got 2 and a half years for shooting John. I do not understand this at all. I thought the one bright spot was they had this mad man and he would get what was coming to him. I can't believe a man got barely over two years for shooting a man. The defense attorney was brilliant. He has made everyone aware of how sick Bobby was. He was highly intoxicated and depressed. And I have to admit that when you hear his story. He has had a very sad life. But it doesn't excuse what he has done. Cliff's dead and if John wasn't there to stop him. There would of been more bodies. He had to think to go to that club. He had to think to take a loaded gun there. He had extra rounds in his pocket. Why was that by the way? He had to think to press the gun to Cliff's head and pull the trigger. They convicted him on assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury but not with intent to kill. How can it not be with intent to kill? He had already killed.

    It would be nice to have more details on this story. What happens now? Will there be another trial? Bordeaux obviously killed Cliff. Will he be convicted of a lesser crime? Is he in custody? Do we need to be concerned about a killer walking among us?
