If the bar actually carded people as they came in this could have been avoided. Apparently the bar employees new these guys and their history and they still let them in the club.
This tradegy could have been avoided!

I have the deepest sympathy for the family of Joe and Mark Torres. May they Rest in Peace.
Jose, I feel for you and your family in this time of loss, but I would never understand the need or want to get revenge in matters of the law. To just walk into a bar FULL of patrons and start shooting? This is not Mexico, taking matters into your own hands will just cause people like you and your family more greef than it worth.
Listen, this world is big enough to just walk away. Find some place that you and your family can live in peace.

Well, I guess that makes it alright to walk into a crowded bar and start blowing people away. All three sound like trash to me.

The person I feel sorry for, is the man who had to shoot the gunmen. Imagine on how he feels now that he killed some one he never that he would. All three were wrong for what they have done in the past year or so. To put the guilt on some one who is innocent.

I am from Winn. and I am have a family member who lost family in this. It is too bad that no one has the strength to stop the fighting. Think about all the poeple who are hurt emotionaly. Too many of my old high school freinds have gotten into troble either jail, drugs or both. There is way to much pain and death.

3 fewer P.O.S. gang bangers in this world. That's just a good start.
I had family in that bar that night.
Nice they could bring the fight to the streets where innocent bystanders could get hurt.
A lot of people owe their life's to that Marine that stepped up and offed that scum. Who knows how many life's he saved.
If that good Samaritan ever reads this.

Thank you sir!

Don't know if I could carry on without my little brother. Or all the good friends what were with him that night.
God bless you and the United States Marine corps.
I'm getting my concealed weapons permit now.

As a concealed carry permit holder I am sorry the Reno man had to use deadly force, but imagine if the gangster opened fire on the bar patrons, what a different story this would be.

Thank you Washoe County for realizing the potential life saving capabilities of the responsible armed citizen. Look out criminals, you don't know who has a concealed weapon while you are committing your crimes.

#1 They were not gang bangers.#2 the man was Navy Seal not Marine.#3 You have no idea what this was all about and who these guys were. Yeah you might have read the paper but it does not look like you read it the right way. It stated that this incident was not gang or biker related. So your P.O.S. gang is blown in the water. I am glad there was no more hurt. I do thank the Navy Seal guy for taking it upon his self to help out others that were there. I am sorry for both the families losing there family members. This was all done the wrong way. If our court systems weren't so slow in getting stuff like what happen taken care of in a timely manner maybe this would not have happen. They let them out of jail where they should of stayed til there court hearing and retaliation happened. The wrong way but it happened.

My problem with it, is that the three of them and the family have been fueding. If you have a problem then deal with it between yourselves, don't involve innocent people. The military man had to do something I would hated to do. I give it to him for standing up for the rest of the people.

Yes, the families r going to mourn over them. That's fine. I'm just glad it wasn't any one else(the innocent).

The man that shot the gun men will have to live with it for the rest of his life. Is it fair to him to have that in the back of his mind(military or not)?

So typical to blame everyone else but the responsible party.
Blame the courts, Blame the Bar, Blame the Police.
The blame rest firmly on the rotting soul of that piece of $h1t that took a gun into that bar and took two other peoples life's. And may have taken others if that good Samaritan wouldn't have been there, and shot him down before he could take anymore.
Marine/seal who gives a crap he's a hero.
And I want to know why this guys not on the national news.

You sound very intelligent. Just learning the new language? Tell me, were the two punks shot illegal? Was the shooter illegal? Were the two punks in a bar underage instead of being with their families? Why aren't you using their real names? And now, why don't you get off this board before ICE tracks you down. Maybe all of the scum should be given weapons to use on each other. What a waste of humanity.

Would you want your name out there if you got caught up between a family fued? I know I wouldnt thats for damn sure. And yes I am plaming the court system. If they would have done their job then none of this would of happened. Wheater inocent or guilty. If the courts would have done their job there would be no one dead right now.
