Despite the fact that this young man tragically died such an early death, the youth in this area continue to abuse the same drug that he overdosed on.

Who cares about pot when these kids can just raid mom and dad's medicine cabinet.

I'd rather they were down by the crick sneaking around and smoking a joint like we used to, than the crap they do today.

His minimum would be 2 1/2 year....From past experience....He'll do 5 to 6 years. 2 1/2 is for one charge. He was found guilty on several charges. Don't know where you got the 2 1/2 from but saidly you mistaken. Also his girlfriend wrote the Judge a letter asking for forgiveness....Give me a break.

As if the holidays & everyday for that matter aren't hard enough for us... we have to continue to hear all of those wonderful comments that you can't keep to yourselves.

I know that we live in America & we have the freedom to do & say as we please (eg. the negative things that some of you continue to post about my mother)... but I would appreciate that you think twice before you decide to say more things about us...

OH, but PLEASE, continue to think & say what you must of us and how we are dealing with things... it only makes our lives that much easier knowing that people think so highly of us!!!!!

Just keep this one in mind... prison time will not be enough to bring back my little brother and nothing can make this right so move forward with your lives, as we have been forced to.

By the way... thanks to those of you who continue to memorialize Brock in a positive manner!

Thanks for your time.

(oh & why is it that no one can ever post there name under those comments either? If any of you were a friend of Brock, then you should at least have the balls to tell us who you are. He would have!!!)

Did Schneider force this drug down Brocks throat? Thought not.

No the drug was not forced but it was the main contributing factor in his death. Someone else's medicine that was not prescribed to him, killed him.

All I have to say on this is, WHY CAN'T ANY OF YOU LET BROCK REST IN PEACE. He was a great person. Everyone and I mean EVERYONE loved Brock. So please enough is enough. Schneider is serving his time. It may NOT be enough but Brock wouldn't want any of us fighting over it.

The whole situation is so very very sad and my heart, thoughts & prayers go out to this family.
Who has the right to judge and who can cast a stone that has never done anything wrong in their own life, this is a very tragic story and this family will hurt the rest of their lives, you never get over losing a loved one. If you cannot say anything nice, Do not Post It !! this family is still grieving and on top of it the holidays are worse....Say a prayer for them and stop the criticing !!!

Brock was a good person to know. He may have made a few mistakes in his life like everyone else had, and then he made this mistake which took his life. You people cannot blame this Sneider guy for Murder it may have been his medicine but both him and Brock were Adults. Both made their own decisions. You want to blame someone blame the Pharmacists, Scientists, and Doctors who everyday put this shit into peoples bodies because they sponsor these medicines. They do not try finding the best cure they just slam a new narcotic out to whoever they feel needs it. It is sad we lost another young person to Narcotics, its time to realize there is better ways of treatment then Narcotics which in any case is highly deadly. You can overdose on just one pill if your body does not want to accept the effects it gives you, or you can Overdose on 25 pills. Those Fentinal patches were not tested properly by the FDA or any real scientists who had common sense enough to know, Hey we are putting a highly deadly drug onto the market. It is all about Money and profit for Doctors and Pharmacists to prescribe these drugs, Do you honestly think a real caring doctor would give this drug to his own child? I doubt it, they would find the safer, better cure. R.I.P Brock! Some of us known who the real person you was inside. Others can judge you all they want, but us people do still care.
