    Probably really hungry, now he’ll get somewhere to sleep and something more to eat for the night.

    Daniel hobdy has been my best friend for 15 years. He was crying out for help. When I saw the video of him begging the cops to kill him I was literally brought to tears. I hope snook gets the help he needs. All to all you people that want to make jokes…..daniel (his friends know him as snook) would never hurt anyone…. he is a gentle caring man with nothing but the best interest of others in his heart. He served over seas and fought for our country….. I want him to be remembered for all the amazing things he has done, not for this stunt. I hope when the time comes the judge realizes that he really needs help and sends him somewhere to get it.
