    I would love to see God change the heart of this Man like He changed the heart of a man named Saul. I’m sure we all know the story. Evil Saul became Awesome Paul. I’m sure the chaplain of the Escambia county Jail murdered two people in California. But look at what God has done in that Man’s life. Think of how God can take this senseless behavior and turn it around for His glory. True enough, most of us want to see this man brought to justice, but don’t forget about all those red cents us tax payers fork out to the state of Florida and the department of Corrections in hopes of rehabilitation for men just like this. I’m praying more good comes out of this than bad.

    “How sad, everyone posting sound like a bunch of judgemental teens. Not defending his acts by NO MEANS, but how bout we be praying for this young man and his family. What if this was you or your child.”

    If he were my son, I would be rightly ashamed of myself for my failure as a parent.

    We probably ARE being judgmental, judging his actions to be shameful.
    (Plus, I’m jealous of his relatively good looks, height and youth. Now you’re judging me for my professed shallowness — whether true or false.)
    Being caught doing despicable things results for some reason with being despised. Whodathunk?

    Feel free to pray for him. If the Lord listens to you, He doesn’t need others chiming in to respond favorably to your requests. If He doesn’t, you got other problems.

    Shame is a feedback mechanism used to modify social behavior (and unsocial behavior). It may be too late for him, but many others are thinking, “I don’t want strangers mocking me for what my child does. JUNIOR! Behave!”

    See? Now they’re going to demand better behavior from their young’uns, thereby saving many of them from a life of crime.

    Shame — like greed — can be a good thing simply because it is a thing to avoid.

    How sad, everyone posting sound like a bunch of judgemental teens. Not defending his acts by NO MEANS, but how bout we be praying for this young man and his family. What if this was you or your child. This was once a little boy who was probably a happy and good kid. No one knows what might have happened in this young mans life for him to turn out this way. No one thinks maybe something horrific or tragic led this person done the wrong path. As Jesus once said “he who is without sin, cast the first stone”. He’ll get punishment for whatever he did. Making juvenile comments on his hair, butter commercials and girlie garbage……really….how mature!! Have a heart, say a prayer and lets hope this young man can turn his life around. Look threw a mom or dads eyes. How sad and broken does he look?????

    Now all joking aside, let’s get to the seriousness. Howie, all kids that are bad doesn’t mean they don’t have role models. There are some kids that just does not want to behave, some parents still believe in tough love, although if everyone isn’t supporting, it’s gonna be harder to do something with the kids, but those who don’t support but cater blames it on the good parent, the others never do wrong, but to them they’ve helped when they could. Oh they help alright, help the kids turn even worse, because the kid doesn’t see what they need to see. It could be where people kept telling the parents to lighten up & they did against their wishes. I don’t know about this boy but maybe he will get the help he needs, we never know if there’s something behind this or if they want to do good & just don’t know how to break the habit & just gonna do bad. Sometimes you have to break way clear of bad influences whether it be family or friends, if it’s not healthy or moral for you & others, you have to break free period, no contact at all.

    Great job law enforcement officers. Hope the thug will be kept locked up.

  8. A citizen on March 20th, 2017 5:14 am

    I was thinking he was trying to be the new “Beast”?

  9. Nob on March 19th, 2017 9:33 pm

    Please keep him there.

  10. Well on March 19th, 2017 8:12 pm

    I believe there is a bit of difference in this picture and the last one.
    He must not have believed them when they said you’re going with us.

    Glad they found him. When I first read this the other day, I wondered why a 19 year old felon was even doing out on the streets?? Did he not spend any time at all the the felony?

  14. Kathy on March 19th, 2017 2:13 pm

    He could be the “I can’t believe it’s not Butter” model.

  15. Really on March 19th, 2017 1:12 pm

    A model folks seriously let’s be real now.

    The only jobs he will be qualified for is prison laundry or stamping out license plates – 19 yrs. old and already a violent, convicted felon with a firearm assaulting LEO’s – He is going to prison where the prison populous will welcome him with open arms. In the wake of it all is the loved ones he cared nothing about by his actions.

  18. Renee on March 19th, 2017 9:11 am

    I do not find him the least bit attractive. He appears very smug and needs a hair treatment.

  19. Howie on March 18th, 2017 6:57 pm

    He will be an easy find. Just look for the dude with all the females flocking around him. At first I thought it was a girl. He does need to pursue a modeling job. But first he needs a role model to take lessons on behavior and following the right road.

  20. Safebear on March 18th, 2017 5:33 pm

    @Joy, maybe this is his way of getting into modeling… Remember the guy in California who spent time in jail and is now a major model… Talking about getting publicity through the back door….

  21. David Huie Green on March 18th, 2017 2:09 pm

    Be hard to find, 6′ 4″ guys just naturally blend in

  22. Joy on March 18th, 2017 1:07 pm

    Instead of crime, he should have pursued acting, modeling or sales. The best decision he could make would be to turn himself in because when they catch him, he’s probably gonna get messed up if not killed. I hope he gets the help and/or correction he needs to make a better life for himself.

  23. Anne on March 18th, 2017 12:59 pm

    Nice looking young man with a twisted sense of right and wrong.
    Hope he is caught soon and without any further harm to LEO.
    With this kid’s looks he’ll be popular in general population.

    Doesn’t matter if he cuts his hair he looks like The Kurgan from highlander. The actor who played The Kurgan which is Clarence J. “Clancy” Brown III.

    Suspect is described as 6′4″, 184 pounds, with fabulous hair.

    Too many punks like this running around free.

    if he doesn’t cut his hair he should be easy to spot.
