This man was so evil that after he shot my son he stood over him watching him bleed and just starred at him,then he ran,and the police think he has done this before the mans nick-name is "shooter"



God sends angles to earth and he sent one that day,a lady(who I have not had the chance to thak yet) sat with my son,held one hand on his chest to stop the bleeding and with the other hand she held my son's hand comforting him,God bless her.

I hope this may help people who would like to learn how to post links that you can click on and it takes you to another internet place. They usually are highlighted in blue.

Here is the link to learn how to do this, and hopefully it may help Dianne and other causes. Good luck in learning how to do it, its not hard at all. I was lucky to get help of so many wonderful C2 friends.

I want to say how sorry I am to hear of that terrible event. There are a lot of rotten people around on this world, and many good ones too. Its the rotten ones that need to be put away, punished and re educated.

Stay strong Dianne, you keep going.

Posting click-able, live petitions on Care2 news or else where.

Also, know you guys know about the candle site, if you can get this change.org link clickable, never works for me, can you find the candle site, which we can light a candle for Dianne's son???

I can certainly understand the feelings of a mother whose son has been attacked like this and almost lost his life. My heart goes out to you, your son, and his girlfriend. It is especially heinous that this was the result of a kindness they were offering to the thugs. What I don't understand is why you think the Allentown Police won't be doing their job to find the perpetrators of this horrible crime. Have they given you reason to think they won't be looking for these guys? I did sign your petition but I'm just wondering what the story is about on the APD. Best of luck to all your family. It must be horrible to have suffered such an unwarranted assault. I do hope they will regain full health and happiness, Dianne.

My cyber sis i have signed both petitions and lit a candle on Care2 and at home with prayers ongoing for your son's full recovery. We all love you and truly embrace you with positive healing Light and energy. I have posted and will repost on Twitter for more signatures.
I appreciate Dusty forwarding your story to John Walsh at America's Most Wanted. They will find this 'shooter' and put him behind bars where he belongs!
