I guess the system is backwards, you're guilty til proven innocent! If self defense gets you put behind bars, I hope I never get shot or stabbed. People shouldn't jump to conclusions..that's what the main issue is.. Don't know who to put the blame on but just pin it on the guy who was shot in the head and lived just because the other guy died.. That's not justice!

So, two men had guns. One was the homeowner prior to his divorce so he might or might not belong at the home. The other might or might not have been invited to the home. It seems unclear if either man should have been there and there has been no statement as to why either man was there. The police and courts are not releasing any facts or statements, and they may or may not have some clue as to what actually happened. One man is dead and the other was shot in the head but not seriously injured by the wound. This sounds pretty whack to me, I can understand the denial of bond.

All of you people that dont know the Leroy Shifflett shouldnt jump to conclusions. There are many innocent people in jail and TOO MANY guilty people out walking around. Hopefully in this case justice will be served and he will be set free!

I dont know all the details of this situation but it sounds to me as if it were self defense. Since when has it become so wrong to take up for yourself and the ones you love in this world.All I know is this is a horrible situation for both familys involved.No matter what either man has done or who was in the wrong they both have a family that loves them.All involved need prayer and not judgement.

Thank God that there are peole out there that actually see the situation AS IT IS! SELF DEFENSE!!! And to all of you that dont, maybe you will be caught up in a similar situation that makes you think differently. If you were in that situation you would save yourself/family!

Mr. Shifflett needs to be right where he is because he has been in so much trouble before. Believe me he is not a very nice person just ask his mother

Kim and family, sorry that you have to go thru this. I hope this turns out in Leroy's favor. Stay strong for the children. Please ignore all the nasty comments as some people are ignorant and very inconsiderate. Its left up to God to judge people.

There is only one side of the story to tell, the other side is deceased now! The truth will never be known.
