    I would like to say that I knew Dan Gardner from the Marine Corps during the 1980s at Camp Lejeune. He / it is not representative of the standards of a Marine, and it is no longer welcome into the brotherhood of former Marines. It is obvious from it's inability to interact on a human level with others, that this was the most likely reason it was with the Murfreesboro Police Department for such a short period of time. I knew it to be quick to temper, spiteful, and a dangerous person. Once someone offended this creature, it started to plot against them. How it did not get life in prison or the death penalty for this CALCULATED heinous act is beyond me. I am truly sorry for Ms. Cogburn's families loss and wish to convey my deepest sympathies. It is also my opinion that this animal should never be allowed parole, for it's exactly the type to commit the same grievous acts upon another helpless victim, because it's actions are more that of animals than a humans, without moral clarity or reasoning.
