No reportable use of force was used at the time of arrest or at any time during his detention.


Thats one less dirtbag we have to worry about. I guess he wont be robbing or stealing from people anymore. To bad they all dont end it like this.....

No body should end up like this - That was my baby's dad - I don't know why he did what he did - but not everyone is a DIRTBAG!!!! - If someone kills innocent people or something than say what you want - But killing themselves - He has 5 kids who he loved & who love him they don't need people like you saying that kind of garbage - especially now.

He obviously was a model citizen and thought of nobody but himself when he "allegedly" killed himself. Which he most likely did. Kind of left a lot of people out to dry. He took the easy way out...... What are is 5 kids to do now, that their dad thought of himself before them. I wouldnt accuse him of being a dirtbag, but maybe a robber and definitely not a man.
