    bigal02282, don't assume that you know him by the picture on the news. I know exactly what happened and it has nothing to do with drugs or gangs!!!!

    How dare you blame Reese, which was the victim in this crime!!! You may want to get the facts before you start assuming. He was a very good friend of my families and a great guy. He did not deserve this!!!! I, by no stretch of the imagination, am involved in drugs or gangs. I am a 47 yr. old mother of 4 and grandmother of 8. I would not put my self or my family in the company of a person that was involved in any of the above. So, I suggest that you keep your negative comments to yourselves. His family does not need that right now. How would you feel if this happened to a member of your family???? Would you like people that have no idea what they are talking about to be on here making these kinds of statements??? I think not. I know it is hard for some of you low class citizens but, try to have some class and respect before shooting your mouths off!!!!

    I feel so sorry for those who will realize that it does not take drugs,money or domestic reasons to get killed now a days. Lets be logical here, people are so heartless and can careless about who you are, your family and definitely your life. I am so exhausted by the many comments and replies that has something to do with and I quote well what did they do. PEOPLE WAKE UP YOU COULD BE NEXT AND DO NOTHING AT ALL BUT WALKING TO YOUR CAR, SITTING IN YOUR HOUSE, RUNNING. NO ONE CARES. Reese I truly want to apologize for heartless imbeciles that never knew you but judge so quickly. love you and may you and my little brother live in the clouds. This world is the devils work.

    Comparing us to South Carolina like I did in my comment, I'm grateful. South Carolina ranks 4th in the
    nation in violent crime. Chairman of the bored

    Also in your comment you found it “amazing we have such a low rate of violent crime” and we should be grateful. Why would you be grateful?. A fine example of apathy at it’s best.

    more executions would help to! And stiff penalties for hard criminals that keeps them in a box for the rest of their lives and not on parole after 1/5th their sentance." - I Carry even in Cary

    How you wanna pay for all that Bubba Duke?
    Simplistic solutions sound good. You should run for office.

    How about teaching your kids right from wrong to begin with and let them know weed is against the law and you don't do it. You do the crime you do the time. After all what harm is there in taking a candy bar out of a store, it's less than a dollar. or what is the harm of getting a 10 year old high on weed or say other drugs while your at it. No difference in Weed and say pills will be the next comment. You do the crime you do the time. They put people in jail for selling alcohol when it was illegal too.
