    Its sad that this mans death is being justified b/c of a criminal record. I guess if something like this was to happen to the many people out here who have done their share of dirt in the past but never got caught and wised up and matured and got their life together, we should mourn but being he mad bad choices and got caught, he got what he deserved. Just b/c we can't go online and see all your "dirt" doesn't make you a perfect person, get real. Everyone has someone in their life, family or just someone you know, that is not doing what people think is perfect and if something was to happen to them you would want anyone disrespecting them, so you could do the same... My prayers go to the family and the children at their time of loss and my prayers also go out to the ignorant.

    roe: Lots of people have clean records. MOST people have clean records. Do you have a problem with that?

    Roe- perhaps a criminal record is relevant in the death----perhaps one of his "co-workers" killed him??? Don't you think his criminal record is relevant in the police investigation?? I don't think the poster stated that this makes his death any less important, just that this could explain it a little more....

    See the record for yourself. It goes back 15 years to when he would have been 17 and everything before that would be sealed as a juvenile

    Arkansas and look to the right are on to something. Pay attention Roe. My records clean. You can check it out when I die. The point being, if you choose to live by a certain lifestyle, then it doesn't come as a surprise when you die by it. People make poor choices alllllll the time and then cry foul when they are judged by them.
