    Corrupt DEA where stealing drugs from evidence vaults and reselling them to cover extensive credit card debt.
    They also are creating suspects by planting evidence just so that they can steal from them.
    Given the choice of suspension or dealing with their debt most DEA are thinking outside the box.

      um seems he was not THAT GREAT if someone shot him to death in his own home what was he involved in that put him in contact with someone who would shot him to death?? and don’t try to say NOTHING people do not get shot down like this in their home with out being involved in or with something only possible way to get wasted in your own home and have it not be because you were doing something stupid is a domestic deal and if it was thought to be domestic the article would likely say so

    i agree with cruz. my husband was a police officer for 30 years and in that time saw MANY cases like this and in EVERY CASE the dead person was involved in things like BUSINESS DEAL GONE BAD
    and a any number of other less then legal activites
    or maybe he did something to someone and really ticked them off and they did this NO it does not JUSTIFY killing him but in 30 years on the force my husband says he never saw one single shooting death that the victim did not in some way cause for them self (excluding drive bys and such)

      NOBODY is perfect…..but how sad you feel the need to make his family and friends feel so terrible at a time like this…….I can only equate this to a police officer getting shot and people talking about “how corrupt they all are”……
      (although that is NOT my opinion on police officers)….I don’t think you would appreciate someone making that comment….right?

    Police are investigating… Stop the hypothesis’. Your two cents are only hurting the people he’s left behind. Essentially, he was a good guy who would have given any friend of family the shirt off his back. He didn’t do anything to YOU. Yeah… What ever his lifestyle was, likely got him where he is. But let’s not beat that dog right now, PLEASE! His friends and family are heartbroken that it’s ended like this. So stop all the badgering and bad mouthing! This was HIS ending. Let’s have a little class; have respect for his family and friends who cared about him!!! THEY get to struggle with this now.

    2. Denise says:

      I agree Jenny…..I am reading this and can’t believe the things people are saying when they did not even know him.WOW! Sad….sad…world we live in… 😦

      Excuse me? Who are YOU to judge whether ANYONE is good or not or deserve something like this? YOU are a GREAT example of someone who deserves every single bit of pain && suffering that is even imaginable && beyond.
      At least we all know that if something were to happen to you, we could tell your loved ones “ya well, he obviously deserved it someway or another”

      Piece of S*iT

      Jenny && everyone who knew him- does anyone know an update on all of it? Robs bro hasnt really heard much && i have been out of town…

    Why was this guy even in this house?
    The papers said he was renting a room. renting from whom?
    The previous owner died last year, and the house is in forclosure..

  6. hotmail.comJessica says:

    Hey John, that is a really good question. Possibly Vicky could shed some light on that?

  7. lil jenny says:

  8. Charleen says:

    You guys are unbelievable, haven’t you ever heard of “Home Invasion Robbery” ? The man was sitting home by himself…. These Punks came in shot him 3 times in the chest in cold blood… They have three people in custody for 187 Murder. We’ll see what happens in court. So the junk pouring out of that hole in your face is just your version of human waste.
