    Where drugs are involved, all individuals that are participating are guilty of something illegal. There are parts of Fremont that need cleaning up and I hope the new police Chief does it right!

    If you do not know the whole story, which this article is not giving, then you don't know what really happened. All I can say is if you go looking for an altercation with a weapon, then that is your fault. If someone came where you were with a weapon trying to harm you, what would you do? Like I said know the facts!

    Gun safety? The gun didn't shoot by itself because of negligence. The guy shot two men on PURPOSE! The problem is people lack self control and decency!

    These alercations are just so tragic people should really learn about gun safety before they involve themselves with one that is for sure

    Use a gun to commit a crime = 20 years, shoot someone without killing them = Life, kill someone with a gun = Needle. Sounds pretty simple to me.

    Report abuse

    Just exactly what does a a gun have to do with it? Suppose someone uses a bushaxe to commit a crime? or chops someone's arm off with an axe? or kills somebody with a baseball bat? Shouldn't the penalty be the same?

    This really irks me! Families are struggling trying to make-ends-meet, hoping and praying family members don't get sick or hurt that requires a trip to the hospital that could possibly ruined them financially. Then these clowns shoot each other go to the hospital and I guarantee…if they walk out they will not pay a single penny toward their medical bills. It just proves that the leeches of society get all the breaks.
