    For those who made the ungrateful comments about this especially JUDY. Nobody is perfect you don't what this man has been through. We all fall off the band wagon some more than others. I'm pretty sure some of you all have some thugs in your family & isn't all that innocent. But do remember this he is someone's son brother father uncle & grandfather. How dare you inconsiderate individual post comments like that.

    The best idea for the family is to stay off this site and other places of public opinion on this subject if they can not handle reality. My prayers go out to them but maybe, just maybe, if he had recieved a good old fashioned, pashionate ... woopin a long time ago he would still be here. The bottom line is if he had been at home minding his own buisiness instead of involved in gang activity and stealing this would not have happened.

    this man is a habitual criminal. look at his record on nc dept correction. this is public info. i agree with vincent and others. since the courts could not keep him locked away in order to protect the people, a higher source stepped in. its over. no more stealing, breaking in, shoplifting, manipulating women, flim flam, all that which endangers others, its over. and the tax payers wont have to foot this bill.

      It is probably a good thing that we don't know or see some of you that obviously don't have anything better to do than talk negative about my brother without even knowing him and what the media only shared with you. I wonder if there is some insecurity with you that makes you feel better about yourself when you criticize someone else. I'm not saying what he did was right but how some of you are disrespecting my brother and family with your asinine comments isn't an act of random kindness either. You never know when you or your loved one will be faced with an ugly situation for you know that what you reap that shall you sow just as you feel my brother did. @ A men, thank you. God bless you all.

        You are blinded by love, and that's the saddest part of dealing with a loved-one's bad choices. His bad choices created 'victims'. In my family, a distant cousin's child made a bad choice that resulted in his own demise, at the ripe old age of 17. He was being served a warrant at his parents' home, for having a relationship with a juvenile female. As the deputy was leaving, he shot him in the back with a shotgun and killed him. He then jumped in his car and went on a high speed LE pursuit, crashed, and took his own life with the same shotgun. That deputy left behind a wife and children; most of our family sympathized with her. I understand how you feel, but reality is all that is left. Condolences to your family.

        I think you completly missed what "a men" was trying to say but either way to, the both of you, this young man chose his path in life and in choosing this path chose his own demise. I hate that you lost a family member but i am willing to bet that you or another family member has tried to warn him in the past to get off that path and it obviously did not take.

      for the record, sis got it right. and theres reality, then theres acting like a freaking human being when people are experiencing that harsh reality enough as it is without you rubbing their faces in it.

    How can you be so sure?? Life has a funny way of making even the most 'impossible' happen. Think twice about what you speak before you end up having to eat your own words, hopefully that won't be the case.I wouldn't wish this on anyone's family. But Thanks I appreciate your concern.

    This happened in my neighborhood....very sad. Thank God the gentleman in the PT Cruiser is ok. My heart and admiration goes out to all the rescue crews that were there...how do they cope after a horific accident. He did make wrong choices,sadly, this is the final heart break his family will have to deal with concerning him. Maybe we all know someone with similar problems.....just saying.

    Shan, please read; someone who commits a crime, damages property, puts lives in danger, and then gets killed in the process has delivered their own justice. It is not 'judging' to be on the side of justice, in that case. We are not 'judging'; we are grateful he will not do this again, because there are repeat offenders everywhere these days. We are grateful he did not kill someone else with his bad choices. Those who are crying 'don't judge' are way off base. He died 'red-handed' you might say. He brought it on himself. It is sad for his family/friends, at least, the law-abiding ones. Remember; he brought it on himself. You'll have to deal with that reality.

      really? you think she will? have to deal with that reality? come on, what a heartless thing to say to someone in mourning--i hope i dont know you in real life cause id disinvite you to my funeral; who knows what youd say in a receiving line! and as far as saying 'dont judge'? well, it doesnt matter now, does it? hes gone, wont be committing any more crimes. give yourself a treat for that affirmation. i want you to re read your post and think about it if one of your kids was the person the story is about. would you still say those things? God i hope not.

        The truth does hurt. I'm a Mother; I understand both the love and pain of raising a child. I also understand that the realities of life must be dealt with. I do send condolences to that person's family, as stated before.

          whats that got to do with anything? this shan person has stated their awareness of reality yet you are trying to still beat her with it? shes experiencing it more than you are, so what do you know? you understand the love and pain of raising a child--what about a child that keeps messing up till it gets himself killed? how would you feel if everyone acted as if they were GLAD your child ended up dead for being so stupid? its not shans fault, but youre still beating her with that 'reality' thing.
