    So glad they caught this alleged murderer otherwise he'd be free to kill others...maybe a relative of ours. Good job Lansing Police. Now just make sure you keep him where he belongs with his other brother in prison!

    I give my sincere condolenses to the Arnold Family. I went to school with Todd and Micah, and I actually have (had) a class with Micah at LCC this semester. My prayers are going out to his children and the remainder of his loved ones who will have to continue to cope with this tragedy. This was so senseless...RIP Micah

      My sympathy to you and your family Floyd. Not to say I know the whole story, but sounds like your brother was a good man just trying to stand up to the ugliness and attempting to make his neighborhood a better place. A good legacy.
