James Todd Rivers was killed while outlining plans for his August wedding at a dinner with friends, said his stepmother.

On Friday evening, Rivers, 41, whom friends and family members call Todd, and his fianc

Jesus, shot in the back as you discuss your wedding. That’s a pretty shitty way to go. A really shitty way to go.

What kind of pussy shoots a man in the back? That makes it worse. Being shot in the back.

Hang on though…shooting in the BACK makes him a coward??  So what kind of hero is he, if he shoots him from the front?

Don’t put words in my mouth, please.

I never said nor implied that. Stabbing or shooting someone in the back is about as low as someone can go, hence the expression ‘stabbed in the back’. To shoot an unarmed man is awful. To shoot him when his back is turned is lower. That’s as low as you get.

Jeez, way to think it’s all about YOU, Ren!  LOL

It doesn’t matter where he was shot but WHY. If they can’t immediatly deduce the reason I will go on a limb and call it a waste of a life.

In what circumstances would him being shot not be a waste of life?

The shooter was the woman’s ex.  The victim was her fiancee.  While they couldn’t give a motive for sure, I’d say outright jealousy.

Didn’t it say he just KNEW the woman’s ex?  Might still be jealousy, maybe he was one of the ‘let’s just be friends’ guys…
But Jesus, that’s terrible…What kind of sick bastard kills a man who is presumably his friend in front of his family and friends as he’s planning his wedding?  It was obviously premeditated, him having a gun at a dinner.  I’m not one for capital punishment but…this guy needs something more than just prison…
