nope no proof - but then wasn't making an accusation . just repeating what many have said who live in the area. If LJW deems it necessary to remove the comment then they should.

end 2nd paragraph "earlier incident," LJ World reporter, George Diepenbrock, failed to make apparent the "earlier incident" in which occurred.

Research the facts! Freeman did not do anything except protect; vehicle broken into early hours of the morning and others involved. Comments on father were unnecessary. What a joke, boxers or briefs.

If Freeman didn't do anything except "threaten him with a bat" in an earlier incident then why didn't Freeman call the police instead of threatening someone?

I apologize for my earlier comment. It was unncecessary. I've suggested it for removal.

"Protect," no threat besides the attempt to enter and break into vehicle and police were called as read. Put on your boxers_or_briefs and call it a night.
