  1. Least they vould of let him get a couple of punches in, he will probably get arrested for attempting that i presume

    1. Same. The guy had to be at least 6’5”, over 300 pounds. One punch would’ve probably knocked Gendron out.

    2. @soullessprince2000 It would have been good practice for the beatings he’s about to receive for the rest of his life.

  2. He better join the brotherhood really quick when he gets locked up for good. He won’t last a minute in prison without them.

    1. They not having him either ….he will get put in PC..if he hits a main line he will b touched b4 he can do anything

  3. I don’t know what I’d do, if my loved one was murdered. The grief I couldn’t bare. Murder is 1 thing, and I wouldn’t care about any charges either. Life would be over at that point. I pray to God dailey. I never have to experience this pain.

    1. I’d do exactly what he’d did and I am a Christian too. I’d bring the Justice just like the archangel Michael did

  4. If Pops was 10 years younger he would have got Gendron. Since he tried in front of everybody i give him an A for effort..

  5. we should roll back cruel and unusual punishment protections for mass murderers. it makes zero sense we give the same penalty to someone who takes one life as someone else who takes 20. if the families want to tear the murderer apart, let them.

    1. @Kayla Kent Two wrongs don’t make a right.
      Violence is either wrong or it isn’t.
      People deserve to be treated like humans or they don’t.
      You can’t have it both ways or else you’re a hypocrite.
      If you can’t forgive this person and you wish harm upon them, you’re no different than they are. You’re on their level

  6. Who can blame him, they lost their baby. I hope they didn’t charge that man. Wait until that killer goes to prison. I guarantee you he’s DOA

  7. All of the innocent lives he damaged and destroyed, not counting his own but don’t count his, because his don’t count, if I were the judge I would have instructed the court room to look the other way when he was attacked.
