Rest in peace, Sheriff Williams. May his murderer be captured, dead or alive. If alive, he will face man's justice. If dead, he will answer to the Ultimate Judge.

Execute the little shit and send all the money that would have been spent trial and housing the puke until he died to Williams' widow, children, and grandchildren.

That kid must be a crack shot to get the drop on him. At first glance I couldn't tell if the kids pic was a guy or a girl. Kinda looks like Sandra Bullock. Well you can rest assured he EVERYBODY'S bitch in prison!

The piece of shit gave himself up? I wish he'd tripped on one of the LEO's guns, accidentally of course and seen a very slow painful death to hell!

I blame the boy's father for not teaching the boy the difference between right and wrong.
