you know you should probably get the whole story before posting things on the internet or writing articles. A good journalist always gets the whole story first. Let me tell you if my 5 year old son was inside a house and the home owners were refusing to give me my son they decided they were going to hold him hostage and then pulls a gun out, so basically the defendant is standing on one side of the door while his crazy ex girlfriend and old man holding his son at the house and there is a gun between him and his son, your damn right that door is coming down and who ever tries to stand in the way of keeping the child safe. So go ahead and make it sound horrible he beat up an old man, but dont leave out the fact that the old man is his crazy exs father and they were holding defendants 5 yr old son in the house at gun point. Yep justice sure was served, the wrong person is in jail.

That young man had no business leaving his child in a bad situation, nor did he have the right to put his hands on anyone. Better choices leads to better living. My grandpa use to say " if you do not want mud on your boots, use the sidewalk"
