I agree wholeheartedly Adam! The Delaney family needs our compassion and support, not our gossip and fingerpointing.

John Delaney is no longer being charged with attempted murder, it was lowered to assault with a deadly weapon. Please give all of the facts of a story which so greatly impacts many people.
