To whoever made the comment

To whoever made the comment that Tammy should get life, shame on you! I knew both of them, and Tammy is devastated by the outcome of her actions. If you feel the need to attack someone, at least state your name. I really dislike people with opinions but not the guts to stand by them, or at least confess to who you are.

Enough is enough, all of you

Enough is enough, all of you editors at the Mariposa Gazette really need to stop for a minute and think or put yourself in the family's shoes before posting info as it comes out of the court house, scanners or off the streets. I, Jeanette Kinard (Tommy's daughter) was bearly notified of this action and you already had it posted online. Therefor I had no time to contact and speak to my children / Tommy's grandchildren before they reading this. I'm far from the first nor the last to be hurt by your inconsiderates. Respect for others is greatly appreciated. Jeanette Kinard Brown

I hope she gets life.
