Balfour

Has Anger Management Issues

10/28/2008 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ why officials believe William Balfour violated his parole -- he had missed anger management counseling and substance abuse courses that were required as a condition of his release from prison.

Balfour had served time for attempted murder and carjacking. The anger management lapse is ominous, given that he's a "person of interest" in the murders of Jennifer Hudson's mother, brother and nephew. As for the substance abuse courses, the Chicago Sun-Times quotes a witness as saying they saw a man resembling Balfour exiting the infamous white SUV "carrying what appeared to be a bottle of liquor."

Several law enforcement sources tell us Balfour could be charged in the murders as early as today, but no timetable is definite.

WHY??    

How a person can commit such a heinous crime is beyond comprehension. If this man (even calling him man or person is too good) is found guilty, he should be tortured in public!!!!!!!!! Like they do in some Arab countries, instead of putting him in "Death Row" and then someone grants clemency!!!! America is too forgiving!!

This is just unimaginable, to happen to such a humble person. Jennifer seems to be down to earth.....no one deserves this kind of pain!!!

Not only is America mourning, but the whole world is mourning with you Jennifer!!!

yes this case is extremely sad but it's not that unusual. Come to Detroit and see how many kids under 10 yrs old are killed every month. This may seem shocking to some but those people are probably far removed from street reality. People walking the streets carrying their kids get shot at all the time, usually the kids get hit too. Children sitting on the couch in the house watching TV get shot when a drive-by is done on the house. Kids get shot in cars when the shooter is trying to hit someone else and doesnt see the little one low in the back seat. It happens all the time! It doesnt make it any easier but it IS reality in America.

I think selling that car without permission.illegally would be a violation of his parole too...

It is a sole reminder of two things.
ONE; ladies just don't marry the man that just got out of jail, abusive, controlling... THESE ARE RED FLAGS!!!!!

TWO: IF HE JUST GOT OUT OF JAIL FOR TRYING TO KILL SOMEONE, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK HE WON'T KILL YOU OR YOUR FAMILY........ RED FLAG AGAIN.

Three: if one or two had not happened, then this would not have happen. Men like this do not snap, they show this monster during the relationship and on to the marriage. This was not the first time this man has been violate but the first time he took it this far.

THIS IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO HAPPEN UNTIL WOMEN WAKE UP AND STOP JUST BRINGING ANYTHING WITH A PENIS INTO THEIR HOME AROUND THEIR CHILDREN, CALLING THEM A MAN.

No one knows yet if this guy is guilty or not, but the public is already ready to lynch. What ever happened to a fair trial? I feel bad for J-Hud's family and all, what happened to them is an utter travesty. But let's at least hear ans see the evidence before we hang this guy? HUH?
