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.).

  1. I assume he died of natural causes in 2009?

  2. My family knew this man when I was growing up, he was not a good person then and he deserves what he got for killing that poor man. He might not have went to jail for what he did back when my family knew him but he got what he deserved later in life. Karma will get you.

  3. This man and his family git BULLIED by the neighborhood thugs….yea it dont condone murder….. but the Police thewas on the ID channel was so none oblivious to their part in all this they should have done something about the torment they had to go through…. okay so the guy was not nice….but they were new to the neighborhood and these punks provoke alot…. and the vandalism to this families home and steeling….

  4. I cannot believe people keep commenting that Richard was “not nice” or “not good” and that even the reporter and cop in the episode, along with the thug, Mike Spinella, kept mentioning that Richard had a temper. I’d have a temper, too. Any reasonable person would have a temper. NO ONE is saying how horrible those boys were! Why? Why is our world so ok with allowing people and kids to act like that and not holding them accountable for it when something bad comes of it? Why?

    • I agree. The Spinella (?) kids were just as much to blame for their uncle’s death by all the terrible things they did. If they hadn’t been jerks then Richard Day wouldn’t have felt the need to go to their house and their uncle may still be alive.

    • I know this trial was on TV. Do you know where I can find this episode? I was one of the two deputies that arrested Richard Day and I never saw it.

  5. I blame them scumbag nephews

  6. I just seen his story on the I.D Station,
    Them punks should’ve just left that little boy Alone,
    They should’ve took their uncle advice in the
    First place,
    I do feel bad for the uncle he tried to keep the
    But I blame those punks ass boys
    I hope them 3 learned their lessons (Stop Bullying)

  7. The rossers were shitty parents who raised shitty kids. The uncle was a dick to. But day shouldve ran over all the punk ass kids that were harassing and stealing from them. Id never convict him. Bad shitty parenting are why there is so many damn criminals these days. That asshole johnny rosser acts like isnt all his snd his brothers fault
