    MS - Julie Brightwell, 52, waitress fatally shot at Waffle House, Biloxi, 27 Nov 2015

    Johnny Mount allegedly shot her in head after she told him not to smoke
    Mount, 45, has been charged with first-degree murder
    Police say he had a 9mm handgun on him at the time of the shooting



    So sad and senseless !
    Mr. Mount looks inebriated in his mugshot ; imo.

    Rest gently, Julie !

    Unbelievable. Over a lousy cigarette.

    She spent her final moments warmly asking customers how their Thanksgiving Day went.
    It's a tragedy all around. The suspect had been a firefighter who was hit by a car in 2002 and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Not to lessen his guilt here, but it might partially explain some things.

    From last month:


    Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain kept Mount's bond at $2 million on a first-degree murder charge. He has been locked up since his arrest the morning of the Nov. 27 shooting.

    After the hearing, Cox said the restaurant's surveillance cameras captured a clear image of Mount shooting Brightwell in the right side of the head. He said the footage is "one of the most graphic" and "clear" he's ever seen...

    When Brightwell saw the gun, records say, she ducked behind the counter, but Mount stood up, leaned over the counter and shot her once in the head.
    Preliminary waived; headed to grand jury next.

    It is impossible to comprehend a crime like this. It is completely senseless! The life of a woman taken.... for absolutely nothing at all. I'm so sad for the years she'll miss out on and for her poor family.

    Normally I'm not a proponent of the DP, in this case I think some folks are just to stupid and dangerous to live.
