      No, Drugs had NOTHING to do with this. You want something dirty to point the blame at? Point the blame where it belongs, on a low-life dirtbag who deserves the chair for what he did to this man.

    I personally used to know David pretty well. He was always nice and extremely laid back. Needless to say people from his community are in pure shock from this event as he had never exhibited anything close to this type of behavior. I’m not saying he isn’t guilty (doesn’t look good) but we are all in disbelief. I suppose anyone can snap at anytime. Very sad.
