    No I am not saying what he did was right not at all yes your right when you say I would be singing a different tone, but you have no idea whats been going on in his life right now so thats why I stated that the times he is going through right now will fade away no the situation

    AMEN to "Big J's" comment. I can't believe the "annonymous" person wants this to just fade away. How can anyone feel safe when there are folks out riding around on bicycles with guns! What about the victim here? If that person that wants this to just "fade away" was the victim he/she would be "singing" a different tune. How can anyone support such a crime!

    Thank the Lord he has been caught. I would hate to think an armed man was still running loose invading homes. Thank you WITN for following this story to the end.
