Update in Stillman Valley Shooting.

There was a news conference today regarding the Stillman Valley home invasion where Travis Castle was killed. While searching for information on what was said, I found this following video clip:

I know this video was prior to them catching the other boys that were involved, but I wanted to share it anyway. The father is blaming the boys involved and not the yet to officially be identified House Guest. I applaud the father for putting the blame in the right general direction. Travis is still part of the blame, but there appears to be outside influence.

When I get the info on the news conference today, I'll share that with you all as well.

I think that all of you are being very unreasonable if it was your kid that had gotten shot you no damn well you would not want to believe that it was their fault you would love your kid and be very heartbroken. I didn't no travis but nieghther did any of you. I know a very good kid that started getting hung up in all this shit thats going on in this world and he didnt want to do the things he did but he had been threatened. How do you think the parents or family memebers feel reading your nasty comments. Have a heart he made a mistake and he payed for it with his life so drop it.

Thank you Karly, everybody on here just hears what they want to here and deletes anything saying that Travis was not a " thug" or "punk"

Travis was a good kid, and it is a horrible thing that he is gone, yea he made a bad decision and yes he did pay for it, he lost his life. BUt do these people have anything to say but talk bad abou ta KID they don't even know.

and i know people can state their own opinions, but when you don't know someone and you are judging them it makes it that much worse.

Breaks my heart to have to believe that so many people can talk about a young boy they didnt know. and when someone says no he wasn't a "punk" they just go on this "punk travis"

its hard on the family, not even that its on here becuase we choose to read this, but when people go places just becuase htey know that is where our family lies ot go just to talk about glad they are that he got shot, thats what hurts.

Ladies, I've sent you both e-mails regarding the above comments. Nothing has been deleted, I don't believe in deleting comments as long as the person includes a valid e-mail address in it or if the comment has nothing to do with the discussion.

There are three posts on here regarding this incident and both of your comments are on the wrong post. Even though you didn't respond to my e-mails to make sure they received the proper attention I feel the deserve I've copied them to the most active threads.
