    I have also known Brian since kindergarten and I hate to see him going through so much. Brian has a great family and was extremely sweet and smart in school. Yes Brian chose his path and his punishment is earned...but no one is perfect. At some point he lost control but I do not see him for what he is, I know him better than that. HE is better than this, he needs help. For those of you who claim to know Brian and are leaving judgmental comments, you obviously don't know him well enough to know his family or the person he was before. Also, for those of you who feel the need to be "happy" that this has happened to him and feel no compassion for his family I'm assuming you are planning to be perfect the rest of your lives.

    I've known brian since kindergarden- He got in with the wrong crowd and chose to do what he did. This is the best thing that could happen to him!!! He was caught red handed SELLING the drugs- he needs help. I know God has a plan and I am glad Brian got caught now and can get the help he truly needs. I'm glad they caught him before worse happened.

    Let those with harsh words buy their Oxycontin from Rush Limbaugh for $1 a Milligram. Christians believe if you get your pain medicine from the street you go to hell, but if you got a prescription, stairway to heaven. Doctors are in the prossess of doing away with narcotic pain meds altogether. The reason Herion use is up is folks who have cronic pain will seek relief in any way. If you have no pain, I am happy for ya, but for those with back problems, folks who are in constant pain, there should be a way for them to get releif without having to use heroin. The chick works where I get my movies and she is always been nice to me. All those folks who said ugly things, when they get old and hurt all the time and their Dr. won't give'em any meds to help, they will have earned it, funny how life comes back around to ya.

    Amy I am with you too! Faith is about all we have these days. Sometimes people have to hit rock bottom to come back up. My prayers are with them and everyone who is addicted to that horrible drug! May God bless us all, even those who pass judgement which, according to the Bible, is reserved for God alone.

    yes, they need to be off the streets.But they need HELP! Not just thrown in jail where they can still buy it. They need to be put some where to get the help they really need. Yes, that will save to state money. No more going back to jail and having to pay more money. No rehab is not going to help all but with people out there that has no faith or does not believe in God these kids will never been clean and know that God does love them. All the people that talk trash about them apparently have never had a prolem in there life. Drugs are not the only problem killing kids!!! Lets pray for them.

    I honestly hope and pray that these people get the help they need to get their lives on the right track..we often wonder what makes people bottom out but in all reality each of us have a mind of our owns and we are the ones who makes those decisions. May god be with these individuals and guide them.

    I love my Gina. I don't know how she got this far down but I have faith in her. She's been a good friend in the past. The baby is safe with family.

    For those who are making judgements-BeWare. This world is a world that many of you should be thankful you are not part of. It is a hard world to get out of once you are sucked in. And that is exactly what happens-you get sucked in before you even know you are there! One of you said that there are no victims here-you are so wrong. They are victims of a world that preys on the weak, greedy, and lost souls. You may feel justified for saying what you are saying but think!!!What if it was someone you LOVE!! Would you be so quick to judge them, place them under the bus?? I have watched this precious human-being grow into a troubled young soul. I have lived in the same world as she. Like I said before once you are sucked in they got you and you see no-way out! So when you began to make your judgement-think first-What if it was your child, sister, neice, nephew, mother, father, or very best friend--Now answer is it really that easy to just throw them away? I am glad no one throwed me away!!!!!!

    I know the good and the bad of Brian and I love him. What he was doing is wrong and not only hurt him but hurt others as well,those he sold to and their families. Brian was raised in a home where he was protected and nurtured and not prepared for such prediators as the ones his "friends" got him involved with. There is always two sides to every story just as the Bible says there are two roads in life. We, his family, are hurting. I'm sorry some of you feel we don't have the right. Somehow our hearts don't seem to agree with you. Brian has cried and pleaded for help from where he saw his life going and each time his physical addiction pulled him from his families fingers back to the drugs with a look of total despair on his face. Unless you are in our shoes you can never know the pain him and his family has been through, are going through and have yet to go through. And I hope you never do. A picture? Baby faced, the sweetest smile, sparkling eyes and blond curls. The last born Jackson.
