    Karma's a true reality some people deserve exactly what they get. In the end nobody's to blame. Family, friends, the law, health care system nobody can be trusted. There's another truth. So let's all gang bang one individual who hasn't had a perfect life. Almost everything he says on his wall ends with peace maybe he thinks he understands the word.. Like everyone else. We all cry for peace, Then make war. Hypocrites.

    Bigelow is a frequent flyer when it comes to getting into trouble.

  • Harmless ?

    Harmless I think not , a pellet has the ability to blind a person ,and other nasty things I'm sure,I for one do not blame the law for taking this seriously ,you go around pointing anything out windows that resemble a gun trying to scare people then you know what your doing no matter what your education level ,he's already on probation so apparently someone didn't bother to teach him right from wrong; so maybe some time in the slammer will give him the opportunity to learn this valuable lesson ,hopefully he will get serious about his life and become a better person for it, and I think he needs a good circle of peers that can work with him ,not make excuses for his wrongdoing ! And Elaine take a long hard look in the mirror ,you might find some small mindedness looking right back at ya !!

    An air pellet gun??? You lousy bunch of small minded people!!!!!!!! Ruin this guys life over airsoft gun!!!! Once the police seen that it was harmless they could have taken it and warned him!!! Or told him the importance of not doing things like that!!!!! I will tell who ever is reading this right now lawyers, cops and anybody in the justice system take for granted our youth dragging them through the system instead of getting them help where needed!!!!! I'm ******* PISSED OFF!!!! I am his mother and I'm proud to say that he is a good kid he's 20 but education level at a 2-3 been all over canada we never had it easy!!!!! You would think our society would take more pride in our younger generation with the times changing so fast Did my son know that he would have such hefty charges laid on him? Nope!!!!he had a harmless airsoft gun and he knew it was harmless!!!! So let's make his life worse then what it is because the valley POlice need REAL action!????

      He ruined his own life. No one to blame but himself. Nice try with the sympathy card though.

      Keep ur small minded comments to yourself please. My comments are for those who undertand that our Children have rights to .. And just like all u small minded people instead of pushing for the proper help our children need he gets thrown around the justice system because it's all about the money money money trust me it's a bigger issue then you may be able to conceive. It's not only my son it's "many" children that need help. Don't get me wrong ... I completely understand the fears and the idea of what happened... Because of the things that HAVE happened, what u seemed to have missed is this wasn't the case... But was treated similar. My point is that if more of our children had counciling and beneficial community activities to keep young people on track teaching them the good ways of life then they would be less Likely to turn to criminal activity.

      No my views are not small minded. What he did was foolish and in light of what happened to three officers not long ago he was lucky that things didn't turn out worse. His Facebook page says it all. He is 100% responsible for what he did.
