Bartley to be tried as adult for school shootings:

Ken Bartley Jr., the gunman in the Campbell County High shooting that killed one and wounded two more, will be tried as an adult…

Kenny Bartley, Jr. was scheduled for a transfer hearing Wednesday to determine whether he would be tried as an adult.

However, Bartley’s attorney, Mike Hatmaker, waived the hearing. He told the judge there was no need to re-live the events of the shootings and waiving the hearing was best for Bartley and his family, since it was likely the state would have won.

The state had no objection so the judge ordered the transfer.

    LMAO…I’m with you Jim. Though I am a big supporter of the death penalty (and unlike some…think that juvenilles who committ adult crimes are more than suitable for adult punishment), I really like the thought of these idiots being rectally assaulted while awaiting their ultimate punishment.

    Unfortunately, being a juvenille, he will not pay the ultimate price but we can all rest easy knowing that his young virgin ass is literally priceless in the joint and he will be passed around continually for the price of a few smokes until he has to wear depends undergarments to keep the the crap inside him 😆

    In the words of Frank Zappa…some advice for our young murderer…..”Don’t bend over if you are smart”

    Does it sound like a threat? No it is not a threat. I am just amazed that someone with your twisted thinking process and your inhumane views could have made it this far in life. I think we need to get back to the forum topic instead of making this our personal rebuttal page. K?

    I think you are all dumbasses for talking about this kid when you dont even know the situation around the events. He should not be tried as an adult for the simple fact that he is a fucken kid!!:evil:

    Ashley, I do know the situation. The entire situation, in fact. More than you know, I am sure. If you read the above post you would see that I was defending Kenneth. You may be the dumb….

    Ashley,
    You might benefit from reading some of my other posts on this site about Kenneth. “Related Posts” are listed below. I was writing in as “Someone”, until another user started using my same screen name. (The other user’s “Someone” is in bold, my user name “Someone” is not in bold.) So I changed my screen name to “Bobbie7day”. In case you got confused. And just so you know, there are a lot of people who support Kenneth and care deeply about this child’s welfare. Unfortunately, not too many of these people write into this site. By the way, your attitude really sucks. I realize you are hurt and angry, because you care about Kenneth. But, if you want to help him, try to inform people about the situation. You’d be surprised. People will listen. Maybe not too many people from this site, but other’s will hear you. And every little bit of support matters. If you really care for Kenneth, then you need to advocate for this child in an appropriate manner. And then people will hear you.

    A Petition has been started to Honor Ken Bruce by naming the new elementary school in Campbell County after him. Mr. Bruce was killed on November 8, 2005 when a school shooting occurred at Campbell County High School in Jacksboro, TN. Please take a minute and help the community as we start to heal.

    Only one little problem with this dumbasses (the judge not you Trench) theory, they don’t offer treatment in the adult system. If he really cared about treatment would you send a boy away to be raped night after night? That’s going to treat him up real good…

    Also by what is he basing his last opinion on?

    Hey man, that’s punishment. What difference does it make if your fifteen or fifty-five? This kid brutally shot people, so I don’t think he’s that much of an innocent little boy after all.
    And the fact that he used drugs as an excuse makes me dislike him even more.

    So you seriously think he has the mental capacity of an adult? If 15 year olds can do that why don’t we give them, well any adult rights. This decision was supposed to be made on if he was treatable, now we are giving up on any possibility of that (for all we know without even trying), does that sound right?

    Endersdragon, don’t even bother arguing with these guys. They are ignorant and clearly have nothing better to do with their time than to post on killings day in day out. Don’t waste your time and energy. They do not even know Kenneth. They wish they did because clearly they are sickly intrigued and obviously obsessed with this story. Perhaps they ought to get a new hobby. Trench and gang, I’ll get you Kenneth’s autograph if you’d like.

    well.i dont know what to say to those of you who are on Bartley’s side.I am a friend of the Bruce family.I have been for seven years.I am closest friends with Ken’s niece Mary Elizabeth.I am only 13 years old and i think that you people that agree with Bartley have no heart.Bartley shot 3 people KILLING one.And that ONE happened to be Ken Bruce.Im not saying anything agaisnt you Trench,but you people seriously need to look at your facts before you say anything where ALOT of people tend to read.Bartley should rot in hell before they EVER even think about putting him back in public.
