But on that note, to the family who suffered such horrible and senseless loss...my heart and prays go out to you. No words will ever ease your pain. We can only hope and pray, that someday we can right all the immoral wrongs that contribute to these horrible losses of life.

I see, Grant did another one of his big boy hit and runs! Pounding his chest on his notorious legalization of whacky weed! Looks like he is dying to get out that closet!! He's even chumming up with the police now...priceless!

Harmony wasn't doing illegal drugs but I would be willing to wager his medicine cabinet was overloaded with prescription drugs.

But for some unknown reason, that is a sin to even discuss.

Thank you for your comments OSU600--totally agree. I thought it was extremely insensitive to any of the deceased's family and friends who may be reading these comments for someone to have jumped off into using this as a platform for drug law changes. How hard would it have been when Grant was called on it for him to say Sorry (or at least to have shut up rather than ranting).

He admitted he stabbed him, so I'm just going to assume he's guilty before his trial.

I'm well aware of Grant's pro marijuana Libertarian views. We all are. This story and article was a poor choice for him to once again regale us his drug views.

Let's all just hope Harmony is put away for a very long time this time.

What makes this the hardest for the public to understand. Mr. Harmony is innocent until proven guilty. Trust me, I am not a fan of Mr. Harmony. My own husband had to dance with this man upon his arrival at the County jail. Unfortunately, I am not a liberty to discuss that any further except to say...I hope that he receives a fair trial and he is sentenced for his actions accordingly. That inn is not full.

There is always room at the Inn, no pun intended. There are inmates currently being held at the County jail that has been sentenced and awaiting what they refer to as a “ride out”. The jail is a holding facility and there are inmates that have spent part of their sentence at that facility. It does include murderers.

OSU600 any death will bring out different emotions in the public. It is hard to have a debate when nobody knows the circumstances of the case. The police are still investigating. As for his prior incident in 2006, it was well over 7 years ago. I am not familiar with this case and certainly can't pass a judgement call as to why or how or what happened.

However, I can just about guarantee that this man was not released for the ridiculous assertion that Mr. Mingus stated: "They couldn't lock him up, there's some non-violent pothead taking up the cell. What an outrage.”

Mr. Mingus’s “over dramatized” statement is a battle cry for the legalization of Marijuana.

I can promise you Harmony was not released on probation because of that reason. He was released on probation because of the facts and evidence of the case.

Seems to me they'll find room for this piece of filth now. Are they going to kick out some pot smoking dope to make room or was the room always there? This scum got waaaay to many chances and now a man is dead. That should be the debate here.

Mr. Mingus, you appear to be very quick at pointing the finger at police when it fits your scenario? At our judges and prosecuting attorneys and defense attorneys.

I have a question for you. At what point do you point the finger at those who actually break the law? Apparently clear, your own little group of friends. Grant, you whole objective in this argument is the legalization of marihuana. Unfortunately, you just go about it poorly in portraying that desire.

"And think about the police. The men who have had to deal with this guy in the past. Time and time again because some scum bag lawyer and some idiot judge come together to decide to allow this man to keep walking free."

Is this another one of your assumptions or do you have actual knowledge and facts of this particular case?

What is the necessity?

"I personally know people, some of the most peaceful, nice, caring people you'd ever meet, who wouldn't, never did and never will hurt a fly and had no criminal record, who have been locked up for multiple years for mere possession of marijuana."

Hearsay...or maybe far fetched dribble. Maybe you need to associate with law abiding friends.

"They couldn't lock him up, there's some non-violent pothead taking up the cell. What an outrage."

Why would you assume that is why he was not locked up? Do you know that to be a fact in this particular case?

"I have on multiple other occasions"

What other multiple occasions? I don't even know you. The last conversation I remember having with you was during the time you made allegations that Det. Talbert was trying to infringe upon your second amendments rights by intentionally mentioning a permit used by the suspect in the news.

Ok, let's try this again.

Are you talking about non-violent drug offenders or numerous nameless police officers?

I'd say that's pretty obvious.

You can criticize my attitude all you want, but I'll just repeat what I said before, unless you want to debate my on what I said and/or put forth a better idea, then sit down and shut up. I have no interest in going around in circles with you. You called me out, you said I punted. I've invited you to set me straight since you think you can do it, as I have on multiple other occasions. So I'll use your words, let's play. Get to it.

Mr. Mingus, attitude doesn't impress me.

Are you talking about non-violent drug offenders or police officers? Which one are we on now?

You've put law enforcement officers who agree with the opinions I've laid out here in jail?

You can't even follow the conversation, let alone debate the issue that you called me on.

I know plenty of them Mr. Mingus. I have put a few of them behind bars myself.

"Are you suggesting there are no non-violent potheads locked up?"

Yes, none at the County Jail, happens to be plenty of room down there.

Mr. Mingus I don't know a professional law enforcement officer that would ever echo your sentiments and I know plenty of them. Myself included.

Most importantly, I would never vilify another officer's opinion. Don't make that mistake again. Is that clear enough for you?
