      No where in my comment did I state this man deserved to be shot,nobody has the right to come into your home and assault you,i just made a general statement because im not a gambler,i hate this violence we have in this world just like any other upstanding and law abiding citizen,i hope they are caught too because next time that person might not survive the brutally of these two thugs,because they will do it again,my prayers are with Mr Farrow tonite…

    He is a good and generous man. He did not deserve this. Nor does anyone. I pray they catch them and they rot in hell for what they did. I have read another post on another site from some idiot that called him a racist and said he should have shared his winnings. KEY WORD HIS WINNINS. That was his money not theirs he is not a racist and he is VERY GENEROUS. So here is my thought to anyone who would post such foolish idiotic nonsense. Keep your mouth shut and your comments to your self unless you have a brain and you know what your talking about . Clearly you are nothing more then a waist of life.

    Very sad news I pray they get caught. Just goes to show in this day and age we don't have the luxury of not being aware of our surroundings!
