  1. Sad, so very sad!! I am wishing the residents a speedy recovery, both physically and mentally.

  2. when they caught these punks, they should put a bullet in their foreheads. Maybe if we start doing that, criminals might start to think twice before committing a cowardly crime, like tthis one.

  3. I would agree with John, in all likelihood these were either crackheads or methheads.
    Until the law and punishment's have teeth these types of crimes will continue to happen.
    It takes a real loser to knock down a helpless elderly man and rob him.

  4. Shame, shame, shame on the 2 thugs that hurt this poor elderly man. They should have been asking this gentleman what they could do to help make his life a little easier to live than to terrorize the poor soul. What is happening to the quiet little county that Darke County used to be? Parents, pay attention to your children when they are growing up and teach your children about religion and to respect another human life. Don't become parents if you don't want to spend the time to teach your children what is right and wrong.... we don't need anymore criminals; we need respectful, loving people in our community.

  5. I think if this country started treating criminals like criminals instead of pouring out an over abundance of RIGHTS, that would be a good start deterring these idiots! The next thing is do to them exactly what they did to their victim or victims. No matter the cost! This country wants to waste millions of dollars on these morons in their appeals and defense. I’m sure we can find someone large enough to fall on this A**hole so he can experience the PAIN of a fractured hip!
