  1. Just think of all the things he has done since his release that people were afraid to report….keep this idiot in the pen where he belongs!!

  2. Death sentence for that pos already. I’m surprised wes’ family didn’t kill him. I would have ran him down with a car the moment he stepped on the steeet. Some people are too evil to be rehabilitated.

  3. People are posting some pretty funny animated gifs in the comments on the saultonline facebook page. lol. They gave me a chuckle. Karma lives.
    Dang tho, the cops must be bummed that they didn’t find more drugs. or even more weapons, because ya know there was most likely more. But, 1 gun, 6 people charged? It can’t be everybody’s gun.
    In a legal sense I mean. Good on the cops, they tried, but some people that just happened to be in the room at the time of raid might not know for there is a gun there. If they can prove it was Eric’s gun that works for me.

  4. One gun and half a dozen people? I hope they can make some of these charges stick, especially to the murderer who should not have been walking the street to begin with. Good thing he was arrested before he maimed or killed someone else. Now they need to lock him up in solitary and throw the key away, far away.
