    Wow there is alot of mud slinging going on, i dont think that in necessary. This is awful thing that happened but the law will be enforced and the situation i am sure is under control. I still beleive that bars have a responsibility to the public, STOP SERVING THOSE WHO TOO DRUNK, not i think it would have prevented this from happening. Everyone makes choices in life, some good some bad, who are we to judge those choices as long as they dont effect us, i have made some bad choices i just choose to make them quieltly. Carl is a bad seed, i went to school with him, I can really comment too much on wes, he has been to my house but i found him to be a quiet but polite person,i know about his personal life but it does not concern me that is between him and his ex-wife, let it rest and move on. We see how this ends when it goes to trial

    Well it has alot to do with what took place, both men, who were not a work, in a bar, arguing over a woman, wow looks like a combination for trouble. I think it is horrible that you got shot, no one deserves that. But the violent behavior of the two of you has alot to do with what led up to fight. It is clear that carl was tired of dealing with your mouth. He will go to court and be punished for his crime. As for the kids, most dads would fight for their kids, not sit in the bar at 5 in the afternoon drinking. But i guess it has nothing to do with why you got shot, you are right, you did nothing to provoke the gun toter, but i think it is funny that you were defending the honor of another woman but make life heck with your ex-wife when she left you for being stupid and mean. Oh will live well

    It really does not matter who is your wife, sister, daughter, brother, the point is everyone wants to point fingers when bad things happen, carl should pay dearly for what he did, it was extremely wrong to shoot someone. If you were defending some womans honor well then good for you, but dont make yourself out to be a victim of life, you make no effort to see your kids, you make not effort to get a job, but when you and your so called wife split up, you sure did make an effort to make her life miserable, so makes you any different than carl, you treated you so called ex wife alot worse than what carl could have said to a woman in a bar. I hope carl pays for what he has done, i hope your recovery goes smooth. Marietta people this was an awful thing to happen and i hope people learn from all of this. Wes is only a victim because he got shot. His life is just as clouded as carl's, carl just took the wrong left turn. Live well everyone

    Who are you fooling he is not the father of you child, and he does not even take care of his other children, stop making him out to be this wonderful person that he is not.

    well i have my story right i think he signed himeself out of the hospital, so if some of his recovery is slow, he has no one to blame but himself, did not know wes was married.

    It is sad that this happened. Beer and two stupid men do not mix. They are both trouble makers and love confrontation, a gun should not have been involved, but i would have like to have seen both men get their butts kicked. This gave some people in wes's life some time to shine in the lime light, when just a month ago they were calling the cops on him for violent acts. All i am trying to say is dont make either one of them out to be saints. Carl will go probably go away for long time, and i hope that through all of this wes learns to be a better person, gets a job and pays his child support.
