Suspect's Family Shocked By Arrest

The family of murder suspect Kion Dail of Kinston is speaking out about the arrest of their loved one.

The 16 year old is charged with two open counts of murder following Thursday night's murder of Nash County Deputy Warren Lewis and last week's murder of Thomas Hinton.

Family and friends were at Dail's home Friday shocked by the arrest. The sisters and brother that we spoke to said they had no clue that their brother was caught up in something this big--and don't think he is capable of murder.

Dail's Brother Tyrionta says, "I don't think my brother has no heart to shoot no gun--cause my brother is too kind for that--in my heart anyways--so might people might have another opinion--but it's just me."

Dail's sister Trashana added Dail would never do anything like this because he has a family just like deputy Lewis does.

    Please pray for the Officer's family, the Dail family and all others involved and let the judicial system make the decision based on the evidence that they have received. It is unfortunate that it happened but we all must realize that things like this are happening in our world today. Why? Because we are living in the last days - The Lord is coming soon.

      Are you serious? How could you put pray for those parasites in the same sentence with praying for the Officer's family. Yes I will pray for the Hinton family and the Officer's family. But so far as those low life pond scums, I will pray that they all get tried as adults and the death penalty is laid on the table. I can do almost anything, but I cannot be a hypocrite. You pray for them!!!!!

        If we are Christians we should pray for everyone involved, the victims families, those who committed the crime & their families. Doesn't mean that is an easy thing to do nor does it mean we should not still want & or expect justice to be done. We are all responsible for our acts & praying for someone who has committed a crime doesn't mean we are praying the get off. My reference is found in Matthew 5: 43-45 43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. As well as 1 Timothy 2:1 1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men. Again just to be clear, in praying for them, we are praying for their eternal state not that they will escape justice here on earth.

    Lets see if this gets posted!!!! The family is shocked? WoW who would have thunk a nice little boy like that would have been caught up in some murders . Okay as a Single Black Mother of two adult sons, Let me tell you as a Mother you have to be on your toes at all times. I checked my sons rooms, pockets and telephone conversations... MY HOUSE MY RULES.. If it looked like they were running with the wrong crowd I myself took them to a morgue to let them see what death looks like. Yeah call me hard but It works. I went to schools when they least expected it, and even joined the PTA. I did all this because being a Parent does not come with rules, you make them as you go along. Needless to say my sons were not parasites to society, however after all I did My youngest son was still murdered like Mr Hinton by a boy whose Mother did not have any rules. So Yes Hang em High and give the Mother some time to , she was not blind to the situation. If he came in with jewelry, new clothes and even a full stomach she knew she did not provide this to him, so she should have been on her JOB and found out the HOW WHEN and WHY. Bring back the ball and chain, gunline, hard labor and baloney w/water and pink jumpsuits.

      Thanks for being a good Mom that actually takes the time to check on their children. We need more just like you and we wouldn't be in the predicament!

        What I did is : If some teenager or young adult had been murdered I took them to the wake, signed in as a visitor and explained to them what was going on, I would not advise this for children younger that 13 , in my case we were stationed at Ft Bragg, so went to the local morgue. I also had a friend that was a Police Officer and also a Military Policeman explain to them about the court system and etc.

      Gray, you are to be commended. You are an example of what it takes to be a good parent. I only wish more people had the same attitude you have about parenting. We'd have a whole lot less problems to deal with...that's for sure.

      Gray, do you give parenting skills classes? You've got the right idea. A lot of other mothers could learn a lot from you. THANK YOU FOR BEING A STRONG & RESPONSIBLE PARENT!

    Where do I apply to be on this jury????

    Write you state legislator and encourage them not to change the law for 16 year olds to be tried as an adult. If it's going to change bring back executions for criminals. This is a prime example why it needs to stay as is. His family didn't know what he was into? Ha, they never wondered where all the bling came from. I guess the dope fairy must have left it. I'm sure they didn't ask where the money came from he gave his mother occasionally. As far as the NAACP they are to busy stirring the pot to help drug neighborhoods. Maybe that's why blacks are 25% ofthe population, but are 75% of the inmate population. Ohh that's because the white man never gets caught. Make America safer, carry a gun and shoot to kill when they try to do something to you. They are afraid of people that carry a gun like they do.

      16 year olds that commit ADULT crime should be tried as ADULTS

      Actually, you can try 16 year old's as adults. In fact, we currently have a child that has been incarcerated since the age of 14. In some cases, 12 year old's can be put on adult probation.

    No need to be shocked now! Just because he got caught now everybody feel sorry for him. They knew he was a punk and hung out in the street. I wish him nothing but all he pain and anguish like he has caused the man he killed. Hoping the death penalty gets him and don't waste my tax money on him sitting in prison for like. This was premeditated.
  • by Clifton Location: Washington on Jun 11, 2011 at 06:15 PM
    What were they shocked about? The fact that they killed one and maybe another, or maybe the fact that they may be resposible for even more deaths in the area, or were they shocked that the LEO's had the gall to go in and get them for what they have done. I doubt the naacp will step up to the plate on this one folks so don't be shocked.

    This family is in shock by his arrest? What a crock of horse manure....As a Mother I knew what elements my son were hanging out with and if they seemed "BAD" I (this being my official duty as a single Mother) put a stop to it. As long as they lived under my roof they abided my rules. I overturned mattresses, checked pockets, and listened in on conversations on the phone. You know why, because MY HOUSE, MY RULES....I went to schools to make sure they were attending (I did this on my lunch break, cause I WORKED). So don't give me that BS about being in SHOCK!!! I am shocked that the baby mama would even let her youngest son make a statement... Hey baby mama's get off your @3@ and raise your own children and stop letting the streets raise them. And please I beg of you stop having your children making statements until they have a degree. My heart goes out to the Marshalls family and also the Hinton's family. Believe me I know what it feels like to lose a loved one by the hands of some sick bastards .. Well I hope WITN allows this comment, anyway it had to be said and I SAID IT

    innocent until proven guilty thats the way but if guilty by a jury of peers then swift ugly execution and cheap. And by jury of peers I mean Americans chosen via the usual jury duty procedures not 12 young black males with no job but with 2 pit bulls, 3 illegal guns, some 125$ Air Jordans , wad of cash in pocket, food stamps and welfare check in hand, pack of Newports and a 40 of malt. That describes far too many of todays black and even white youth. To the ones of you out there who work and try to do right keep it up it will pay off at some point but to those who are livin the thug life hope its a short one

        You're learning, Fact Bringer, just keep repeating it mindlessly like the vice versa you learned in the Yankee education system. You believe as the Yankees taught you, "I am liberal; therefore, I am intelligent and educated." I don't need to know the why's, the purposes or the reasonings. Being liberal is good enough to Yankees to call you educated and intelligent.

          Sorry, but the generalizations folks seem to make about African Americans on websites like this would lead me to question why you can't talk about issues rather than calling people names like "liberal" and "yankee" with derogatory undertones. I believe truly educated people don't need to tow party lines- we demand evidence, research, and fair application of the law. Whipping people into a frenzy with talk of violent, immediate punishment, suspending a person's rights to due process, those are regionally common. And I question those opinions. They didn't work in the 1960's, they won't work now.

    you all should be ASHAMED of yourselves!!! I am disgusted by the actions of these teenagers just like everyone else but for you to sit up here and talk so negatively about CHILDREN!!! What else would you expect a child to say about his brother? These are not adults that commented on what Kion did, they are children! You all disgust me!! Also it is not just the black youth that are running around killing...we all turn on the news and see all races committing violent crimes, so the stereotyping is not necessary! I am sure some of you consider yourselves christians but you hold so much hatred in your hearts! How can the two go hand in hand? I think we should be trying to figure out ways to help our youth instead of being so judgmental. Some of them dont have families that care and they find comfort in gangs and the streets but maybe if the communities showed more interest we wouldnt continue to have this outcome.... My condolences goes out to the family of officer lewis.

      Why do you defend "dumb"? I bet this child was in the same classes as one who can speak correctly, if the "shocked mama" even made him go. What this child has displayed is "growing up gangsta" personified. Maybe, you know...if you're so concerned, you can tell some of the advancement groups that they need to show more interest in the community. That's what they are there for, right?

        I am not DEFENDING "dumb". Never once did I say that this child should not know proper grammar. I believe just like everyone else that proper parenting is the first step to insuring that our youth grow up with the proper values and morals but I am not ignorant to the fact that our world is not a Utopia. If the parents go wrong and no one else steps in, then what? People can say all they want, that "this is not my problem" but we all live in the same world.If no one helps these children violent acts will keep occurring as frequently as they have in Kinston and all over the world. I am not saying that these kids should not be punished, all I am saying is something needs to be done to turn these kids around before it reaches this point.

          To Disgusted: allow people to express their anger; we are all disgusted and fed up with these profiles of youth. You call them children, but there is nothing innocent about these thugs that pride themselves on being indifferent to what is right or wrong, what is acceptable or not, and that there are consequences to one's choices. The officer who was killed was doing his job in protecting our community and remove the law breakers. Now he is dead, and for what? Everyday our law enforcement, and civilians, are faced with these elements of unproductive scum in our communities, they go to prison, and they eventually come back out, even more despicable and desensitized to linger among us. Since you are deeply concerned about "christian values," I might suggest you serve as a mentor for the remaining siblinigs of the thugs. They appear to be in need for someone to teach boundaries and give directions.
