    I don't know who yall are, but to show such idiotic responses to someone who lost his life was cold and cowardly! The report didn't say he stole the bike, it just stated that it had been reported stolen! But the way you folks have talked about this man it shows that you didn't know CLYDE! Because he was a loving father, son, brother, uncle and FRIEND to all! So before you post anymore COLD COMMENTS, Think if you would want someone to post like yall have on your family!!!!CLYDE WARREN WILSON you are still loved and will be missed!!!

    The story doesn't say he stole it. It says it was reported stolen. You know what they say when you assume something?
    It makes a butt out of you and me.

    "One more criminal that got to pay for his crime."

    Well, he paid his price, but sounds to me like he added some other people to his bill unecessarily. A lot of people will be paying for his crime for quite a while.

    What's that classic sentiment? Life is not meant to be a slow gentle fade into the grave, it should be a wild ride and a screeching slide with a "Whew, What a Ride!" into the grave.

    Thoughts for all the family and other 'innocent bystanders', but hey, who wasn't using good judgment?
