No one in my family is incest. Not a one. ha ha ha ha thats so funny that you'd think that. thats so funny. i think you might be incest cause you keep bring that up.and b!tch toby is married to someone was not part of the family untill she was married into it. so there. and no when i marry he's going to change his name. not me. and you know what b!tch it's none of your buisness. im in a relationship with someone whom i love very much who is not part of this family. so go get a life

how do you f~cking know ray or toby?you don't your just on here acting like a kid do you know that the person you are talking to (someone who's known mike all there life) she's only 16 dumb a$$ you really need to grow up how old are you?and do you have a family of your own?if you do i feel real sorry for them from the way you sound the brants are way better than you all you are is a TRASHY B!TCH and if you want to keep puting names on here how about putting your's so i find out who you are i hope i do.

proud to be fri...

okay, i normally don't really put my say in any of these things but this has just gone wayy too far. it's pointless to backtalk them. i mean, everyone makes mistakes. i'm a very good friend with one of the Brants&&she is the most sweetest person that i've ever met. hell, i might not know mike that well, i've never met him, but the Brant girl, my best friend[[proud to say i'm her friend]] has told me soo many good things about mike. it made me want to meet him soo badly. he really does seem like a nice guy. so people, leave the Brant family alone. you all should be asham'd of yourselves for trash-talking about them. i hope every single one of you ""back-stabbing" trash-talkers go to hell for what you have said about the Brants.

It's pretty sad that a 16 yr. old is talking that way. My 16 yr. old niece would never say the things I've heard come out of that girls mouth. Unfortunatley she'll most likely end up pregnant within the next year and unemployed like the rest of you. It's actually very sad, I feel sorry for her. And I love how she openly states that Ray would knock me out- we all know his history with abusing woman. Oh and it doesn't surprise me that he's in jail, Where else would a Brant be? What kind of a mother would allow their daughter who's only 16 to get on here and leave the type of comments she has? Once again....only a Brant.

Someone whos kn...

Yea Kim only a Brant huh? Yea im only 16..so what? i only talk the way i do and say the things i do cause you pi$$ m off. you say that you only state the truth but your putting false statements on here. you know as well as i know that you didnt even known who in the hell Toby or Ray was untill BIG BOB put their names on here. so B!tch get you facts straight. d@mn. and you know what im proud to be a Brant. no i wont be pregnant in the next year. ha ha you must be dumb. And i chose not to work. if i wanted to i could get a job just like that. believe me. and you dont have to feel sorry for me. i needed none of that. History of Abusing wonam? where in the hell do you gets your storys from?? yea only a Brant would be in jail huh??? ummm....B!TCH be gone.ha ha ha ha...like i said im very proud to be a Brant

Actually I do know Ray and dope man, I mean Toby. I use to be friends with Jennifer, Ray's ex. I don't know, they might still be together. I quit talking to her when she started dating a Brant. I wouldn't want to be asociated with people like that. It doesn't surprise me that you choose not to work, none of the Brants choose to, they live off the government. You'll grow up just like the rest of the bunch. The only one I can even stand is April. That's because she hates most of you also. Your mom has done a terrible job raising you, look at the way you behave. You'll be in jail soon enough, maybe you can share a cell with Tim and keep him sexually pleased. I'm sure you've already had sex with him, Most of the cousins have!!!

I'M SURE THEY CRINGE WHEN THEY HEAR YOUR VOICE. NO WONDER YOU ARE A SINGLE PARENT WHO THE HELL WOULD PUT UP WITH YOU. THEY'D END UP IN PRISON FOR MURDER. YOUR DAY IS COMING WHEN YOU WILL ANWSER FOR EVERY WORD YOU HAVE SAID.

First of all, I don't know where you got the idea that I'm a single parent. I'm happily married to a wonderful man who loves me with all his heart. And you ask me how I can say those things to a 16 yr. old, hello.....have you read what that girl has wrote? I think she knows more about crime and wrong doing than I do. She's a Brant, her first word was probably a swear word. These people put night time cold medicine in their childrens bottles so they will go to sleep so the parents can go party. Saying a few negative things to her is nothing she hasn't heard all ready. I don't know why she's trying to act all innocent now, she's been cursing up a storm on here for the last month. Talking about beating people up and everything else. One more thing.....can you people please go back to school? It's so hard to read your comments. Your spelling is awful and you must have never learned about periods, dots, and exclamation points. Don't you the excuse that your only 16, my 12 yr. old niece writes better than you people. Actually my 4 year old daughter writes better than you. And I'm sorry to tell you that I'm a wonderful mother. My children love me so much and I provide for them in a legal way, something you've never heard of. Maybe you have a learning disability due to the fact that your parents are cousins. It must be difficult living like that. I'll have my children say a prayer for you and your family, you need all the help you can get. Here's a clue for you.....My father represented some of your family in court a couple years ago. Does that help?

to #1 (Anonymous)

you know what, i think that you are the lowest person ever to talk to a 16 year old like that. MY best friend at that. you p!ss me off so bad it's not even funny. and i know for a fact that "someone who knew mike all their life"'s parents aren't cousins. and who are you to tell her how to spell? she can spell any way she wants to!! you ain't her mama! and i bet that your kids are just playin it off that they "love you" i bet one of these days, they're going to grieve that they are even your children&&they'll eventually turn EMO, cutting themselves. my best friend, the Brant girl is the smartest&&sweetest person ever. &&i am soo proud to say this but i'm glad that i'm friends with a Brant! proud of it! &&if you got something to say about that, then do so, cause it's not hurting me. it's only hurting yourself cause it's showing how childish you are being by putting the Brants down. they are the most awesome&&caring people i've ever met! i got their backs. i would do anything for them. &&no one don't give a flying f~ck on how your niece&&daughter spell! they can be f~cking ret*rded for all i care!! so if you don't mind, why don't you just go to hell, it's the only place that could accept a cold hearted b!tch like you.

no that does not help still do not know you or your father does your daughter also say a prayer for you at night? you need it and i am not in school i do not have to use the .',!? are you that dumb you can't put it together get over yourself and if you think we are such trash tell me why your father would represent any brants? i don't understand how you can put down a family just because one died does that make you feel good about yourself? and you still did not put your full name WHY are you a chickensh!t? i feel so sorry for your 4 year old to have a mother that thinks the way you do well you know what i am done with your a$$ all you are is a sh!ttalker so start talking sh!t somewhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

rockstar!@#$%&3...

just stop all the bullshit mike wouldnt want this and neither does any of his family, i love you mike

Someone who's k...

Hey Kim......how about you shut the hell up??? you dont know nothing. your a b!tch.hahahaha i guess thats just the brant coming out of me now. and you saying that everything that you have said to me is not bad. ummm..yea it is. telling me that maybe i'll get locked up and can share a cell with Tim and keep Tim sexually pleased! what in the hell is wrong with you? is there something wrong in you head or something? or are you just a sick-minded freak like that? grow the f*ck up and get a f*cking life and stay the hell out of mine. and im not acting all innocent. b!tch if i want to cuss...f*uck you im going to cuss. b!tch you arent my mother and the hell if your going to tell me what to do. b!tch I run my own life. and i'll run it any way i d@mn well please to. And how in the hell do you know April? and there you go lieing again. she loves her family. she may get mad at them sometimes but if someone f*cks with her family she's going to be there and mess whoever up who's talking their sh!t.believe that. and i know a lot about crime. i really do. i aint ashamed to say so. and no my first word was-da da. sorry to hurt your feelings. and you can kiss my a$$ b!tch. like i said tell me where you live and i'll kick your a$$ b!tch.

Re:#1

You're strange. You have some weird obsession with the Brants. You go on and on about how disgusting they are but you take time out of your day to monitor the site and post remarks about them. How do you know so much about them? Your like some bizarre Brant stalker. And you keep making remarks sexual in nature(the Brants and their cousins...), it's inappropriate. You say that the Brants have psychological problems but it seems like your the one with issues. You should get help, you seem to be very strange.

oh i finally caught on to what your doing refactor. your leaving the comments on that are bad but taking the ones off where we're defending ourselves. do i need to refresh you? here let me repost 1 that #1 wrote me yesturday...

how comw you wont take that one off? oh yea i forgot everyone has something against the Brants cause we're all bad people and'we all do drugs' hahaha thats funny. I dont see how you can leave this comment on here but take the ones that i wrote off. so what yea i treatened to beat her a$$ but you know what if it was your family i bet you would do the same thing. i dont see hoe she can say all these things and yet to still keep it on the internet. dont you think my family has had enough? it's been over a month. this is rediculous. seriously. so take this page off or im going to start saing worse stuff. and then my family will get ahold of a lawyer and take your a$$ down. now it's your pick. make a smart one.

And #1 aka Kim im not sure if you got my last comment because they took it off but i'll 'refraise' what i said so its not so bad. B!tch...you must have something wrong with you. either you have something wrong in your head and you need some help, or your just a sick-minded freak like that. i personlly dont see how you can sit here and say thing like you have said to me. Thats the only reason why i have came after you the way i have. and plus because you have been bad mouthing Mike since this has been up! ok..lets see, i have never and will never do anything with on of my cousins. so as far as you saying that maybe i'll get locked up and maybe i'll be in the same cell with Tim and keep him 'sexually' pleased-is way to out of control. even for you. arent you supose to be a grown wonam? your not proving that to me. and yea if you keep saying things your going to pi$$ me off to where i want to find you-more that i already do- and beat the living hell out of you. i dont care how old you are. i'll still kick your a$$ b!tch.

to all the bran...

#1 aka kim has dropped numerous hints on her identity, has anyone been able to put two & two together to figure out who she is? i sure hope so for your sake, but not for hers!!! anyone who would stoop to the level that this woman has needs to be straightened out. hopefully you will find out who she is and instead of giving her the satisfaction of beating her down( which she does deserve ) i hope you try to file a slander or defimation of character case against her. she is really out of line here. a man lost his life, despite the circumstances, and the family still needs to grieve. so #1 leave these people ALONE!!!! whatever they have done to you in the past or however you feel about them should be kept under wraps in their time of need for comfort. i'm not saying i agree with the decisions that were made that night or that it is ok, but a "family"has just lost a son, a brother, an uncle, a cousin and a father. no person or family deserves to go through that. #1 i hope you never loose anyone that close in a tragedy and if you do i hope then you realize how these people are feeling. they are probably hurt and angry all at the same time. also to "someonewho's known mike all their life" i am the one who made the comment about letting sleeping dogs lye, this was not refering to mike as a dog this is a figure of apeech that i used to refer to the situation with all the commenting. yes i did know who mike was, not real well, but i did meet him a few times and i never had a problem with him he was always very polite and nice i also know brian and i have always gotten along with him. i know these boys got ito trouble and that they have tempers and whatever else, but so do alot of people. i my self have 2 brothers who have been in and out of trouble and whenever they would make the papers i would pray to god that people didn't judge me by their actions. iam not a bad person and have never been involved with any of the things that they have done. as long as you know that you are a good person then screw what everyone else has to say!!! # 1 keeps it going because she knows that you haven't figured out who she is and also because she knows it gets a rise out of you she feeds off of it. i know that she makes you angry to the point that you see red, but f!ck her!! she obviosly has nothing better to do with her time.maybe she is unemployed as well that's why she has so much time to post comments!!! good luck to all of you and i am sorry for your family's loss.

To Mikes Little Cousin: The reason they take off your comments is because you keep threatening people. They also probably think most people can't read what your writing since it's all spelled wrong. I like how your also threatening the Reflector, telling them they better make a smart choice. They aen't doing anything illegal. Do you think you scare them? Their most likely sitting in their offices laughing at you right now. They don't give two sh*its what some punk as* little 16 yr. old Brant has to say. I hope they keep this up for the whole year. As long as you keep going off, it's so funny. As for what Friend wrote: I don't monitor this site. I have a online subscription to the paper since I no longer live in that town. I also sometimes check it when I read my emails. Not that I need to explain that to you though. I really just love to laugh about it with my husband. We find it so funny that his little cousin gets so upset and mad about what we write. It must be true what we say or she wouldn't get so defensive. I'm glad the Reflector takes off the threatining comments, Keep up the good work Norwalk Reflector!

your husband is as sick as you i feel so sorry for the life your 4 year old is growing up in your family need's a DR.how would you feel if your loved one died? can't you understand what this family is going through your family really needs help you are 100 times worse than the brant family!!!!!!!!!!

#1 (Anonymous)

By the way Brittany: If it were my family member that this happend to I wouldn't have to worry about people saying things like this. Unfortunatley my family member would probably be the one to lose their life because of your family driving drunk. So all the comments about us would be sympathetic, and show support to my family. And I would never threaten to beat someone up, that just shows what type of person you are. Violence does not solve anything, it only causes more trouble for everyone.
