BUT after they're dead, the junkie/criminal/punk is said to be a sweet angelic type... loved puppies, his family... never did anything wrong... such a tragic event.... will be missed.


I think all vigils are stupid when they involve "celebrating" the life of someone who did themselves in or did something stupid/criminal. Why stand in the middle of the road with candles... blocking traffic and wailing? Maybe you should go home and talk to your kids about not taking drugs and other things that people will try to hold vigils over.

Yes, this is him.

Link to article with picture can be found here


So, he's trying to fit in with his big brother's friends by looking like a teenage girl?
I don't know what the hell is going on in Staunton, but someone needs to step in. Because those boys are confused.

An article about their planned protest of the cops stopping their nonsense....

From the article: Kenneth Wilkerson, 17, who had no part in the vigil but hangs out at the skate park, was skeptical of Kellogg's motives for providing snacks.
"They're trying to bribe us," he said.
"There's a string attached," Kellogg replied, tongue-in-cheek. "You are not allowed to cause trouble."



Thats exactly right. Your purpose in life should not be to cause chaos only because you CAN cause chaos. Wtf is wrong with these "young adults"? A kid dies from a drug overdose and all they can think of is causing trouble in the dead kid's name?

dahmers love zombie: I tried damn near everything anyone waved in front of my face when I was in my late teens. I smoked, popped, tripped, snorted, and sniffed my way through my first two years of college.

Ew, what the hell for? Call me a square, but I'm rather picky on what I ingest for a buzz.

John Panzino Jr.'s girlfriend, Nikki Stevenson, 15, said she tried to stop her boyfriend from confronting police, but was arrested after she yelled at an officer. Stevenson is three months pregnant, and said she told the officer so while being handcuffed and lead to a patrol car.

"He slammed me really hard. My stomach was against the car, too," she said.

No self-respectin' brotha is dumb enough to mess with meth 'cause inly dumb whites do.

Don't do meth, it's a trailer trash drug!


I knew he was white as soon as they mentioned camping.

Sounds like she is setting up for a law suit but your stomach isn't that fragile at 3 months. Being slammed up against a car, while uncomfortable, isn't going to do any harm to your baby.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: From a related article:
"On Monday, Panzino's father, John Panzino Sr., said his son was given methadone - a synthetic opiate - during a camping trip to the forest. The father said his son took two pills, possibly more.

"Something went terribly wrong and my son did not come back from his camping trip," he said."

meth-ADONE, sub-twit


Came to say this. Not even close to being the same thing as crystal "meth". Reading is fundamental, subby.

Good god methadone pills are meant to broken into 4 pieces and taken one as a dose mixed with water/ Gatoraid????

5mg of methadone isn't very much.

My mother took the orange kind that dissolved into water for her MS


If you break an orange wafer into fourths, each is 10mgs, not 5. Also, they make 10mg white tablets (much smaller.)

Looks like this gene pool is better off without the little brother, hopefully the big brother and the pregnant biach will join him.

DrMcNinja: FTFA:when John Panzino Jr., 18,...ohn Panzino Jr.'s girlfriend, Nikki Stevenson, 15, said she tried to stop her boyfriend from confronting police, but was arrested after she yelled at an officer. Stevenson is three months pregnant

Is the age of consent a lot lower there than I'm used to?


I have doubts that Ms. Stevenson is actually pregnant. I think it is possible that this young lady concocted the story of her pregnancy on the spot in an attempt to avoid being arrested.

You're trying to hold a candlelight vigil for your little brother that OD'd. When cops ask you politely (we hope) to move out of the street you're blocking then MOVE OUT OF THE STREET! Don't stand there screaming obscenities at them; that option only ends badly for you.

Eyebleach: Failing_Junk: How many people were addicted to meth before the war on drugs?

To be fair, that's kinda like asking how many people were killed in World War 2 during the Twenties.


No, it's not. Meth was invented in 1893. In WW2 both sides survived on cigarettes and meth.

Methadone, submitter, not methamphetamines. There are big differences between the two substances.

Well, I'm no expert but it doesn't sound like meth.

One of the comments on the article mentions that she was arrested not because she yelled at an officer, but because she kicked the chief of police in the nuts.

Do that, and you go to jail--I don't care WHAT jurisdiction you're in.

I don't think anyone is taking issue with the girl's arrest; it sounds like she did something profoundly stupid. What is more disturbing is the use of force against a fifteen-year-old girl, particularly one who is pregnant (again, not endorsing her life choices). Granted, she acted violently and the police will reciprocate violence, but was she visibly pregnant? Did the police officer reasonably believe force was necessary to subdue a young girl? Would anyone read a book by "Bit'O'Gristle?"

pookeywan: Hey look, my hometown made Fark! Oh, wait....

This is my hometown too. I live here. There are so many good things about this area, organic farms, schools, a school for the deaf and blind, Shakespeare theater, local farmer's markets, and all sorts of awesome things!

This kid went out to a lake in the national forest where they were having a party and he took methadone. Yes, it's tragic that he died, but the ilk that he hung out with (probably because his older brother did) are the responsible ones, as well as his parents for letting him go out there.

The family gathered in the local city park for a "memorial" and of course the type of folks that he hung out with came out in force, and made a big stink which eventually required police intervention.

I count this as a failure of the highest order.

That being said, my cousin who was 22 died last year from taking methadone pills and he hung out with the same type of folks not 20 miles from here. I miss him.

fuzzwell:

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your cousin. 22 is very young.

I live here as well and I love it. I used to volunteer at the Blackfriars and my husband works at VSDB. We also have a really cool indie movie theater (one of my favorite places in town) and *used* to have a great Victorian Festival every Spring (I really miss that!).

I meant to say that our town isn't known for this sort of thing. Of course, this is Fark and most of the stories on here aren't showcasing the best and brightest our society has to offer.

Yes, this place is wonderful to live! I adore Staunton and all it has to offer. Have you been downtown to the farmer's market? It's great!

I was part of this crowd when I was young, and they are fun, entertaining, and the are going nowhere in general. I barely graduated from high school and thank goodness for my English teacher who helped me pass 12th grade English and graduate despite my skipping 51 days my last year of school and not doing a lick of homework! God bless you Ms. Vass.

I eventually ended up with my MBA from JMU and I volunteer there teaching Engineering students.

Life is what you make it. The only person that is going to make your life better is you.
