1. ...So it's logical to decide his "guiltiness" based on a mugshot taken 3 months after the incident? -------- altec77777 "does that mugshot look like he got the life beat out of him? No black eyes, no fat lip, not even a cut!" ------------- Who is the one "blabbering"? Yeah - that would be you.

  2. I really hope you're not being serious - that is really tactless.

  3. "altec77777 - have you people not seen his mugshot? he doesnt even have a black eye! doesnt look like he was getting beat on too excuse to murder someone". ------------------------------------------------ if you've kept up on the story, you'd realize that he was not arrested until MONTHS after the incident and that's when the mugshot was taken. DURRRRRRR. Keep your brainless comments to yourself.

  4. It's a little odd the prosecutors decided to suddenly charge him with reckless homicide only YESTERDAY. Kind of sounds like they were grasping at straws. The Huseman's wife even testified that her group attacked Nemcek first. Huseman's "friends" are just as responsible for his death.

  5. Kind of hard to "walk away" when you're getting beaten up!

  6. You are right - people are found guilty of crimes everyday. However, there is still a difference between a crime that was intentionally committed versus an act of self-defense. It was the group Mr. Huseman was with that charged at Mr. Nemeck and started attacking him. It's extremely sad and unfair that Mr. Huseman was stabbed and then died when he was trying to keep peace. However, do you REALLY believe Mr. Nemeck had the time to realize that Mr. Huseman was the one trying to keep peace? He was being attacked, in the dark, by a group, while alone. He did not just come out of nowhere and attack the group with a knife - the group did not like what he said to him so they started beating him up and he tried to defend himself.

  7. You've been "threatened" but you've never been beat up by a group of six people when you're alone, have you?

    I agree with Fast Ed

  8. You people make me sick. This is not a "dog". This is someone's son, someone's boyfriend who got into an unfortunate situation......

    The GROUP of people who were there can't even get their own story straight. The victim's own wife testified that their friends/family "rushed" Jeffery, so why would this NOT be considered self-defense??

    "Egan, a law student and employee of the Indiana attorney general's office" GEE you think he might know a thing or two about what to say in court to stay out of trouble even if he did play a huge role in all this??

    and "Steven Egan's sister, Colleen Egan, admitted during defense questioning to not having observed the events she reported to police and the prosecution." ...Yikes...

  9. Just think if the story had been presented differently - "Mob of six people battering one man by himself results in stabbing and later death of one of the attackers". Just going on that alone changes the tone completely, doesn't it?

    However, it's been presented thus far as "man stabbed to death outside bar".

    People are not thinking of Jeffery Nemeck as a HUMAN BEING with his own family, too. He's a young kid with his own girlfriend and his life has been turned upside down by all this. He's been incarcerated for quite awhile for defending himself against a GROUP of attackers.

    Of course he ran - wouldn't you if you were jumped by a group of 6 people and you were alone? I carry a pocket knife with me at all times - it comes in handy for lots of day-to-day things. I hope to NEVER have to use it in self-defense, but I would if I had to.

    I SERIOUSLY doubt that Brandon was completely "innocent" in all this considering he was surrounded by a large group of friends/family who would all say anything to back up their side of the story and paint the perpetrator in the worst light.

    Feel sorry for Jeffrey and HIS friends and family who have had to endure this with all these terrible comments posted by people who don't know him.

  10. Another fine example of how one-sided these news articles are always written. Bravo.
