Stephen McDaniel. Bibb County Jail mugshot

I'm so sick of bleeding hearts thinking that prison is good enough for these psychos! I just do notRead More understand the mentality that if we, as a society, condone the death penalty that we are somehow barbaric, sick or vengeful. What is wrong with you??? Do you really think it makes us a better society for continuing to support people like this killer for the rest of their lives? Do you understand how much money that costs our country EVERY DAY? I understand that perhaps you feel that there are some innocent people sitting in prison right now and, for those few, we need to be cautious in exacting final justice. However, this psycho admitted that he did it...described it in detail...he is guilty...there is no doubt about that. Furthermore, there is NO...let me repeat that...NO help for him. There is no amount of rehabilitation, no drug, no shock therapy, no surgery, no magic drink...NOTHING...that will help him or change him. I have worked in a correctional setting for many years...with some of the worst criminals in history...(who, by the way, have since been executed)...I have seen them on a daily basis, talked to them, listened to them, watched their daily actions. Trust me when I tell you, there is NOTHING that will change them and I have not lost one second of sleep over their executions...in fact, the opposite is true...I sleep better knowing they are GONE...gone permanently...not just 'put away' for a while. I understand that you think you are being compassionate...you are not. It is a service to society, in soooo many ways, to be rid of them. THEY are the true animals...let me take that back...they aren't even animals...I have two dogs...they have never hurt anyone...I value their lives more than any one of these sick individuals. I can't call them people, I can't call them animals...both are above what they are. There really is no name for it...but I will assure you...they have NO place in society...even in an incarcerated society. Judge me if you will...call me harsh if you must...my opinion comes from seeing and knowing...and you can take my statements how ever you wish...but I know what I know...and you can take that to the bank.

What makes us better then this murderer is he gets a fair and open to public trial. He has the rightRead More to question his accusers and 12 unknown people have to agree before he is found guilty. He also is issued a lawyer if he can not afford one. No vengeance, Justice

Oh and wHen the revenue collection officer asks to search your. Vehicle , " I don't consent toRead More searches " is what you need to practice saying . If you have something obviously illegal in plain sight they can seach. Otherwise you have to give Them permission. Which they need or they wouldn't be ASKING. They'd be telling you they're gonna search . When you refuse them permission they will huff and puff and threaten to call in the drug dog. Blah blah.blah Bring it on steroid head . Then you say "am I under arrest or am I free to go?".
Pam Hamburg April 24, 2014 at 09:28 am
userbronco, you are 110% right. They have NO right to search your vehicle. Of course, they areRead More allowed to peer through the glass to see what they can see, but without a suspicion or proof, they have no right searching your glove compartment, trunk, etc. Yes, say 'am I being detained or am I free to go'? Also, don't roll your window down all the way...you don't have to. About 4 or 5 inches suffices. Stand firm with that one. Be polite, but be firm. Be quiet except when asked a question, then use good judgment in answering. Keep saying 'am I being detained or am I free to go'? Holding court on the side of the road is not a good idea. If they persist in asking you if they can search your vehicle, politely tell them they will have to get a warrant. At all times, be courteous, but FIRM. Know your rights!
userbronco April 24, 2014 at 10:47 am
It's a touchy situation. You want to be as unrememberable as possible to the cop. So when orRead More if you go to court all he wilremember is what he reads in his notebook. That you can request to see by by the way You want to be unrememberable , don't say anything, unless they ask you a question , then use short answers , yes or no will usually suffice, be polite but don't say "sir" a thousand times. I don't say it at all. Make it look like your kissing up . I personally treat cops like I would treat a rattlesnake 96% of the people who are bitten by a rattlesnake are harassing the snake at the time Keep an eye out for them. And don't harass them. You WILL lose any contest with a cop. Even if it's a ego contest on the side of the road . Extra cops are only seconds away and they will beat you up or kill you in a flash if you tick em off Plenty if dash cam and cell phone video to prove it They are kinda like dogs, some are really smart, some are really dumb, but all of em are dangerous in groups or if they feel threatened or if they sense fear in you. Or if they think their getting an easy meal

'The mishap remains under investigation'...? What's to investigate? They fell out of the boat!
Mary Jones April 12, 2014 at 07:35 pm
I agree! Do they want to accuse them of doing something wrong?

Do you know the difference between us and Scandinavia/Iceland? I would say, but I would be called aRead More racist.
Scott Donald April 14, 2014 at 11:29 am
You're absolutely right: Scandanavia has much stronger gun restrictions than we do, and they haveRead More much less violent crime. Couldn't agree with you more.

What I do not understand is ……this guy is in the court room and just got sentenced,Read More and was therefore (or should have been) in the custody of court officers/police ……How the heck did he get away in the first place and why did they not catch him before he got into his truck. Someone needs to take a look at that.

JERRY S. The breath test starter interlock system doesn't really do anu good. I have a sister inRead More law that had one on her car. When she was driving while under the influence she just made her young daughter blow into the devise and " WALA!"

The primary problem I forsee with closing down this "hole in the wall" is the hooligansRead More will simply congregate at another and/or other "hole(s) in the wall" and spread the crime across a greater geographic area ... .

Thank you, Mom for having her in her car seat!
Powdertowner March 31, 2014 at 02:23 pm
Perhaps Mom should have had it the car seat strapped in correctly.
Victor Marshall April 10, 2014 at 11:31 am
@powdertowner - My thoughts exactly. This could've had a very different outcome without that carRead More seat being strapped in properly. Very lucky little girl indeed.

The attacker is a bully and his parents were fully aware of it. As a parent of a non physicallyRead More violent bully, you know when your child is a bully because he bullies his siblings. I used to get complaints from parents of frightened children about my son all the time. My son was finally cured of his bullying ways when another bully punched him with brass knuckles on. Well wishes to the Egan family. This little boy did not deserve this. Nobody does.
Omar Monroe March 31, 2014 at 07:57 am
If thats the case then Melissa Hickson, he deserved what he got, my neighbors daughter was bulliedRead More for a long time, the bullies would be so bad that they even followed her home, waiting down the street to catch her outside, she told her parents but they didn't do anything, when she finally had enough and fought back, she was expelled, and had to go to alternative school.
stephen m george jr mpa March 31, 2014 at 02:36 pm
Something important to think about regarding this situation is ...almost every kid perpetrating aRead More school mass shooting WAS a victim of bullying ...and they had enough. So, let's just brush this crime under the rug and pretend it didn't happen ...and see what happens next.
