    @Denise M Lukas. Are you seriously asking that! HE TRIED TO MURDER this person!!! They don’t release victims name for their safety. Why did it matter “who” yhistabbed anyway??!!

    Who did he stab? Why won’t the media release the name of the victim?

    Regardless of his name and/or his tattoos let’s all keep in mind that he almost killed a person…

    @atmoredude and @BobC Regarding the choice of name by his parents, one of my children went to elementary school with him. The family is related to ‘The’ Ralph Waldo Emerson, so it wasn’t meant as a cruel joke on their son, but a passed down family name.

    It’s sad to see such a young person choose the path he has. Prayers for him to turn his life around, for his family who must surely be troubled and hurting over this, and for the family and friends of the victim to find comfort and strength.

    He certainly would standout in a crowd.

    @ atmoredude
    “Is that his given name by his parents?”
    Agree with you, makes me think of the Johnny Cash song, “A boy named Sue”.
    Parents should give some real thought into kids names and their initials.
    On the flip side are the “Alphabet” named kids as the old Drill Sgt used to call some.

    I wonder if his parents are proud of him or embarrassed by him. He is a sad loser. Prison is the only place for him.

    State prison should be his permanent residence…

    Just released from a 5-yeat prison sentence on 3/21/19 to begin his 2-years of Community Control set to expire in March 2021. I’m taking it that he wanted a return trip to the State Prison to get some additional tattoo’s….. SMH

    Is that his given name by his parents? Why? Why would parents do that to a child? Not an excuse at all and certainly not even suggesting it as an excuse. Just curious as to why parents would that…unless of course they are whacked too?!?! In which case, it would at least lend a plausible explanation for the way he has turned out. The parents decide to get “cute” a give the baby a funny name and then the kid grows up and decides that since his parents didn’t take him seriously, then he’s not going to take life serious.

    Unfortunately for him Sears went out of business. He’s going to have a hard time finding some fresh turtlenecks.

  21. Brian on April 13th, 2019 5:39 am

    Shouldn’t be too hard to find with that ugly tattoo.

  22. Sedition on April 13th, 2019 5:31 am

    Should be pretty easy to spot the punk wearing turtle necks in the spring to hide those giveaway neck tats.
