  • Such a shame people think they can rob and kill to get what they want!try a damn job like the rest of us.i don’t know the poor soul who died,but I hope he rests in one deserves to be murdered.bless his family

    • Honeydew Bridge Chump

      It’s the grower code.

      They all live to steal, kill, cheat, lie, commit acts of terrorism, and replant.

      It’s all they are and know.

      Only a Marine division can bring them to justice and end marijuana terrorism once and for all.

  • It would help if the US military would get OUT of the drug trade.

    It didn’t start with heroin coming back with the troops from Vietnam, or Iran-Contra, or crack cocaine brought into the inner cities to destroy black communities, and continues to this day:

    “Drug War? American Troops Are Protecting Afghan Opium. U.S. Occupation Leads to All-Time High Heroin Production”

  • When people don’t fear the penalties for the serious crimes they commit. Our society will continue to get worse. We shouldn’t molly coddle the inmates in our prisons. I believe we should build a massive no frills prison in the out back of Nevada. And the prisoners should lose all their rights as a citizen of the U.S. Let Chump Trump build his wall around it. and shoot any one rioting or trying to escape. It would be a good place for the murderers,rapists, and armed thieves to live. IT would also bring a lot of well paying jobs to the great state of Nevada. A win win situation.

  • I love how all of u make assumptions about these people like how do u no it had anything to do with weed Huh it was more likely coke Meth or heroin

    • J. Worthingham Fatback

      trouble with writing? Take a course in composition, then try again. AND, FYI, dope is dope. If there’s money involved, be it weed, smack or anything else, thugs will be involved. So YES! The pot trade brings asshat criminals to our area, and here they feel at home, thanks to folks that think weed in safe!

  • That’s a assumption

  • It’s “Manila”‘ not “Manilla”.

    That being said, our society (that’s you & me, folks) MUST take immediate steps to restore our respect and value for life. There is a pervasive perspective that it’s OK to snuff out a life due to a disagreement, disrespect or some criminal act. This has gotta change NOW! I don’t have the answer but I’m certain that our collective efforts can make in roads in returning civility and valuing life. It begins with me; it begins with you.

  • A straight shooter

    God Bless this young man that died so young. May God bless his Family. Drugs suck, and alcohol is a drug too, Period. There is no bringing him back . Five young people , looking to stand trial for murder , Just like that. Nobody wins , Everybody loses . This crap happens all over the US every day . Bottom line addiction is really fucked up . if you have a problem seek help you deserve it.

    • He better hope he got right with God before he died. Pretty sure God doesn’t like child rapists. This had nothing to do with drugs or money. I’m getting really tired of all the speculation going around. The truth of this whole situation will come out in time and people are going to be changing their opinion on this “young man” don’t get me wrong I’m not justifying murder but if someone did to my child/toddler what he did I can’t say I wouldn’t Want to do the same
