The next worse is life without parole and the
The other remaining possible penalty for someone convicted of murder is life in prison with the possibility of pearl,
so, unless there is some sort of a really sweet deal that Ryan's offered, it makes sense to
try to do everything they can from the defence sad to protect his rights, which include a right to a trial and to avoid a conviction that

it was to share with you my terror Grinstead rest in peace made those responsible face the consequences we, the greens, that fact
we hear it. May this community and South Georgia become whole again as tough as it is, is tat.
let the justice system run its course and for all the healing to begin, but before I conclude this scene,
I want to share one more thing with you.
not too long ago, I met a man.
A parking lot, but an outside of Ocilla. We spoke for nearly four hours that night
no direct connection to terror, the accused killers or any one else, but he had a story that he was compelled.
Me even his own position in his job in the community. Yes, that I keep him completely anonymous
call him about the play you his voice has been changed, but the words are exactly what he told me at a relative set passed away. That is to go to the white horse and Fitzgerald on a regular basis about the friends what the guy that played a ban down there. They were kind of like the House ban. They were playing. There are not just every other week andor once a month, but they were literally playing their every week at bottom, a brother, social laugh. He was there every time they played, he would just go there. My relative was one of these guys he's never met a stranger, he felt
it is pointless. Purpose in life was to help other people if he saw somebody that needed a damn. It gave them, madam, if he saw some by the needed arrive or whatever he would help them. He was very outgoing. What that type of thing he trusted people and was just giving type person he had been in the white horse and was leaving and went out the gun his vehicle. He said that he looked across the parking lot
no, if you ve ever been to the white horse and know where the white horse is the parking lot
and I runs EAST and west there he went to his vehicle got in his vehicle was leaving getting to pull through
and he saw somebody in the parking lot, but they stood up on the vehicle him being the type of person he is. He drives opens his hey. You need to mail, he said this kid, he got him again. He said this. Kid is in the truck and had sought on it trying to Craig it until he had killed the battery battery was clicking. At this point he said the guy was yeah. My trucks torn up. I need a job. Somebody jump me off my brother said. Well, I got jabber cables out jumpy off, so he pulled the nose of the vehicle up and got out and raised. Is it said, while the guy got out of his vehicle and was walking around it, he could noticing stumbling real bad cannot wobbling. He was like okay, so the guy comes around and they raise their goods and my brothers making small talk with the guys, not really like focusing on him. You know, like ok, you're, making a connection. Obviously he was impaired in some way.
My brother said: ok, you hook your jumper cables up and other manner, so it was a fair deal. It's gonna like what people do well, the jacket and git for some reason seem like he couldn't get either his hand on the jap or cable or could squeeze the jumper cable or get it on the jumper on the post on the battery. The thought that went through my brother's head was that this gap is messed up and does not need to be driving.
Because the guy was bumbling around stumbling around, he just didn't know what condition the guy was in I've told
he was my brother now said a relative earlier, but it was my brother anyway. The guy gets in. He tells him go ahead and guarantee a vehicle interact. Cranking. My brother purposely took it up or cable of wooden crank because he didn't want this guy getting in the road. He said. If I get this guy off in this vehicle in this condition, he's in and he goes out and kill somebody, I helped the guy gets a and click click, click, click, click click, nothing happens,
long story short, he tells the guy. He says I tell you what your vehicles not running. He said you live around here. He said he mumbled. Something in my brother said well is there's someone I can take you or you can come back and get your vehicle tomorrow or some other time the gas it gear you could give me my brother didn't remember the names ever this was over. He was supposed to be taken
My brother said far lock your vehicle up make sure you got everything and I'll carry their the kid gets
the vehicle with him when they're pulling out of the parking lot. My brother was make small talk with him. They talk about football,
that's how I made it relevant to how remembered when it was because my brother, in telling the story he and I had been talking about football. This was in two thousand five, the best I can tell it down during the holidays when he- and I had this conversation- was because he related it to Florida, beating Georgia. He said, oh yeah, let me tell you about this kid. I met that was a bulldog fan, anyways partner. There was the kid, was a bulldog fan and because Florida had beaten Georgian he was Kherson and care, and on because Florida had big Georgia in going, my brother carried this guy every once in a while. He would just keep silent and he dropped out
his head would drop my brother. He said he was sleepy or totaled out, drunk or high as a kite. Something got him in paired. My brother took this opportunity and pulling over to give him parting words of wisdom of saying you don't need to be getting drunk. You don't need to be out on the road, something bad could happen.
said the kid looked at Madame said: yeah. When I get tore a pass out,
at one time. He said someone told me I killed someone, he did say: pastel not killed somebody. He said some want
told me that I killed some one now relating meant being any person in particular, that would have ever been in the parking lot at the one horse. Salute it could have been one of three thousand people,
so no way of knowing and printing it down
We point clear out of thin air there, because my brother's, not here retailing
by monsieur bite or anything. I was so
or to ask a friend the plate there in the band ass? It did my brother. I will tell you the story, but the kid in the parking lot. He said. Maybe he did. I can't really remember gosh. It's been eleven years ago,
Oh brother mentioned it to Twitter, probably
we times in the years. Then he and I would be sitting around talking. He would retail it, but he said then Canna giving the gas supply.
the words of wisdom, saying you don't need to be out drinking, you don't need to be added, not driving drum
you need to get somebody else to rob. That's when the guy
yes, when I get drunk I pass out- and I don't remember- I don't remember what I did he didn't say I passed out and I kill somebody. He said it's someone told me that I killed someone.
I asked them. Whereas brother dropped the men, often there the coroner, Tyler's rat their work
Every story has an ending, sometimes their puzzling or even unsatisfying, but in life you can control the narrative.
Sometimes you only get bits and pieces of the trail.
But my story, I hope,
one day we get the whole truth,
hello. I think that the carbon here he was a man.
You know I didn't, I didn't think it.
We give some really good work on terrorist case. You know,
another case I had in mind. I've been looking to it for years.
Maybe you and I should take a look.
