  1. Tough guy or dumb boy?

  2. Good. Should have been for killing Wesley Wing, but I'll take it.

  3. I think his past history in the news and his actions speak volumes...

  4. Bubba's a waiting for you tough a hole.

  5. Can anyone make an argument why this person's existence should be tolerated, and why Dean George the parole board chair that unleashed him should not join him?

    1. Just for the record, he was not under any Department of Corrections OR Parole supervision when this offense occurred. Blaming Dean George or the Parole Board has nothing to do with this new offense. Look it up !

  6. He deserves everything he gets. Rest easy Wes.

  7. Life for an assault, but not for murder? WTF.


Please keep your comments polite and on-topic. No profanity
