40 years is quite suitable punishment to make criminal think, and think next time he will robRead More someone, and sends a message to all potential evil doers out there!
Brian April 16, 2014 at 02:51 am
Suntoucher: If you've ever been robbed, especially violently, 40 years would seem about right. It'sRead More unacceptable. Imagine if you were the victim. Let him work for parole and show he's a changed man. In Cobb, there's no revolving door in prison, which is why we don't have as much crime as Fulton County.

I think it's BECAUSE Wheeler is an unusual place to begin a life like this that it was tagged.Read More Sounds like some of the seniors over there are into cocaine and marijuana like they are everywhere else. Wheeler is not immune to these things, nor should it be vilified for the trappings of this youth. It's important that people know that these things can start anywhere instead of hiding one's head under a rock.

Also, slander is spoken. Libel is written.

Perhaps Wheeler is a great school, but get rid of your sensitivities. It shows that criminals andRead More evil exists everywhere, in every community. You are not exempt even if you are in the burbs. And begging for mercy for this piece of dump? Now I'm wondering about Wheeler.

But we can get stoned now, makes perfect sense !! You could always just drive like responsibleRead More people and keep your speed safe, there are thousands of people missing limbs or worse wishing they never were involved in a crash by either there own fault or the result of some balloon knot, Thanks for keeping us safe officers

Previous crimes matter because they show a pattern of unlawful behavior. Witnesses are alwaysRead More sequestered so that their testimony remains free of bias based on the testimony of others. Circumstantial evidence is often the most revealing. This man was convicted of a very, very violent act against young children with whom he had direct access and control over thanks to their mother because women can't stop serving their young children up to their boyfriends even though statistically he probably chose her BECAUSE she had two young daughters. Where the heck is their actual father? Men - be responsible with your kids and women - stop leaving your kids in the hands of boyfriends!!!!!!!

I hope he rots in prison.....with Bubba on top of him.

If I was judge, he'd get the death penalty.

Do you know the difference between us and Scandinavia/Iceland? I would say, but I would be called aRead More racist.
Scott Donald April 14, 2014 at 11:29 am
You're absolutely right: Scandanavia has much stronger gun restrictions than we do, and they haveRead More much less violent crime. Couldn't agree with you more.

Let's pray that he also gets raped in prison!!! Please god, that would be awesome!!!

Calling this shmuck a "goofball" is lame. He's an evil piece of nasty shhhhhhht.Read More Disgusting weirdo who needs a dose of his own bad karma.
Melissa Stewart April 15, 2014 at 10:26 am
You can't pray to God something bad will happen to someone. God doesn't/won't do that. You can prayRead More that he finds deliverance from his evil and disgusting ways and that he is able to repent for his sins while he serves his sentence. I don't wish ill will on anyone, that's not God's plan for us. But I pray for his soul that he accepts the Lord into his life and the victim finds peace and healing in his incarceration. Really, nobody wins in this situation. They both need healing.

What I do not understand is ……this guy is in the court room and just got sentenced,Read More and was therefore (or should have been) in the custody of court officers/police ……How the heck did he get away in the first place and why did they not catch him before he got into his truck. Someone needs to take a look at that.

JERRY S. The breath test starter interlock system doesn't really do anu good. I have a sister inRead More law that had one on her car. When she was driving while under the influence she just made her young daughter blow into the devise and " WALA!"

Perhaps Mom should have had it the car seat strapped in correctly.
Victor Marshall April 10, 2014 at 11:31 am
@powdertowner - My thoughts exactly. This could've had a very different outcome without that carRead More seat being strapped in properly. Very lucky little girl indeed.

The attacker is a bully and his parents were fully aware of it. As a parent of a non physicallyRead More violent bully, you know when your child is a bully because he bullies his siblings. I used to get complaints from parents of frightened children about my son all the time. My son was finally cured of his bullying ways when another bully punched him with brass knuckles on. Well wishes to the Egan family. This little boy did not deserve this. Nobody does.
Omar Monroe March 31, 2014 at 07:57 am
If thats the case then Melissa Hickson, he deserved what he got, my neighbors daughter was bulliedRead More for a long time, the bullies would be so bad that they even followed her home, waiting down the street to catch her outside, she told her parents but they didn't do anything, when she finally had enough and fought back, she was expelled, and had to go to alternative school.
stephen m george jr mpa March 31, 2014 at 02:36 pm
Something important to think about regarding this situation is ...almost every kid perpetrating aRead More school mass shooting WAS a victim of bullying ...and they had enough. So, let's just brush this crime under the rug and pretend it didn't happen ...and see what happens next.
