This guy must have been one

This guy must have been one big, bad dude that only one or two guys couldn't take care of him.

The good thing about this is that Waynesboro probably got rid of enough felons at one time for just one crime that maybe their will be a lull in their crime rate for a little while.

Upon conviction

they need to be swiftly executed. They should not be allowed to draw another minute of breath if they are convicted.

How to stop this

If people wouldn't give their children such stupid names they'd probably be much less likely to be criminals ...

Inquiring minds want to know?

Who gets shot in the face & chest during a drive by shooting while unarmed and charged with murder?

Explain the Numbers?
Unpublished

Someone was killed and a crime was committed, this is a given. Was a string on the gun and eleven people pulled on it at the same time? I Think not! Was there a meeting to discuss this act of violence? Conspiracy yes, not murder. So where does law enforcement get off on making a blanket accusation which I would guess they know is not correct. This means law enforcement is putting someone in jail charged with a crime they know he/she did not commit. Why not investigate and charge the right person the first time and not waste the tax payers money because most of these will walk.

Very Poor Police Work!

You do not catch criminals by throwing a net over the entire community. you try to investigate if you have the ability and bring the right one to justice.

Are you actually attempting to pass yourself off as me?? Doesn't bother me, just curious!!

Because I would never say they threw a net over the entire community; because it's quite possible each one of these person were involved in the crime!! If so, this is outstanding police work!!
