    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

  3. Dear Halls,
    I am sooooo sorry for your loss. I am a distant relative (2nd cousin) of Coleman K. I was devastated to hear and read about the brutal killing of Aaron H. I can’t even imagine the pain you are feeling. I hope I will not offend you by responding to this blog. I know my aunt, which is Coleman’s grandmother is completely hearbroken that he could be involved in such a crime. The whole family is heartbroken, not to mention how yours must feel. I know it’s no excuse, but I believe that alcohol played a huge role in what happened that night, but again….that is no excuse. I just wanted to send something out there and let you know that I personally am praying for everyone involved. I imagine that you are not in that frame of mind, but I know I feel bad, and I hope that my comments are not causing you any more harm. Please try and find some peace for yourselves this holiday season. I really mean that.
    Misty M

  4. Day-Z Hall,

  6. Im really glad that Coleman and Garret pleaded guilty and are going to prison.I know since they are being tried in Jackson County they will not get what they deserve. (sentence wise )THEY killed my only brother.I hope and pray to God that he makes sure while there away they get what they deserve.

  7. its over and done with now, life is too short to stay mad, live every day like its your last bc you never know when your time will be up..

  8. aaron shorty hall is the father of my cousin and i may not known him as well as others in my family but i know for a fact that he wasnt gay. if you do not believe this then you should look at his myspace page and you will see that he is not friends with any guys and that all the girls that are his friends are clearly straight and he is clearly interested in WOMEN!! so dont judge someone over what you hear through the media because things doi get twisted around when the story is told more then once.

  9. I am just learning of this story and this truly saddens me. Even though I’ve read that Shorty wasn’t gay, it really shouldn’t even matter. No one should be murdered for any reason. The evil that exudes from the spirit and soul of the individuals who committed this crime is truly of the devil himself. They are the devils descendants and should be sentenced to death. An eye for an eye.

    May you rest in a sweet slumber Shorty. You are now with our loving Lord Jesus Christ!

  10. I know Coleman and Garrett. I was in the same Pod as Coleman was. His cell was right next to mine. He only acted furious when someone acted gay toward him. I know that he thought of consequences, for his actions. Something had to actually happen for them to beat him to death. I think what they’re saying might be true. Coleman was always smiling, and laughing…..until someone acted gay toward him. I don’t know what happedned, but Garrett and Coleman are actually nice people, well I got along with them.

    • i don’t think that you should write on this page if you have nice things to say bout two MURDERERS! my dad was not fucking gay. did you know him? no i didnt fucking think so,so you have no right to say shit bout my dad. i think that Coleman & Garett are bout pieces of shit and are not good people at all. good people dont brutally kill a person for no reason then say he was gay and try and ruin his reputation after hay already fucking took his life away. thanks to them now i will never get to see my dad again or even ever hear is voice. they are not good people so if all you guys have to say is that my dad was gay or that garett & calleman are good people just fuck off and dont write shit on this page or any of the other pages about my dad!!

      * Rest in Peace Aaron Hall “Daddy”
      – You are loved & missed bunches ❤
