Dunyell C. Gordon a Suicidal Wife Beating Scumbag


A lot of people are claiming that Dunyell Gordon, the moron who police had to shoot at Walmart, “wanted to die” but frankly have could have killed himself without much commotion. It’s more likely this was a scheme to get back at his wife who called the cops on him for domestic violence a few times and earlier that day had alerted authorities that he was missing and was probably dangerous. To put the stupidity of Dunyell in perspective it’s reported that he once beat and tried to taser his wife – because he couldn’t find his keys.

I take it he’s got some issues, which probably are compounded by drug and alcohol abuse:

    That’s the most retarded thing I ever said. He stole knives and cut a cop.

    He had to “defend” himself from a woman with a taser? Are you kidding? I hope when he gets out you tow get back together and he beats the shit out of you.

    I have known Dunyell for many yrs. He was married to a very good friend of mine. He has always been a nut. He even tried to hit on me while being married. He talks a good game I guess, but he is truly a liar. Ms. Debra, he has you blind to who he is. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, IT IS A DUCK. No one ever deserves bad things happen to them, but everything happens for a reason. I know this may sound cruel, but I have no pity for people for him. The funny thing is you said that you were with him and he has told you things, but what makes you think that he was even telling you the truth. The point here is, they are both nuts and they have to deal with that. He just remind me of a monkey; he won’t let go of one vine before getting hold on another one.

  5. Regina on February 18th, 2011 8:24 am

    My name is Regina. I’m am the ex-wife of Dunyell Gordon. This situation is very sad for his children as well as his new grandson. Dunyell has been dealing with alot of demons for a long time. Yet I wish him no harm, in spite of what we went through. I pray and hope he gets the help he truly needs. I also pray for the women involved as well as the officer injured.

  6. A friend o rita's on February 18th, 2011 7:16 pm

    >>To Debra’s first comment:
    His wife is most certinally NOT a crazy women. I have know her for awhile now, and she would never hit him or go crazy becasue she didnt get her way. And did it ever acure to you that perhaps the bite marks and sracthes came from where he hit her first?? Just a thought. She is a very loving person and what you say about hr is NOT ture. I do not however, condone the name calling by the site towards Dunyell. That is a little unnessisary, although no, i most cerintally do not condone what he did. (o, you said he went to jail for putting his hands on you….HELLOOOO!!!!!!!!!!)

  7. KING on February 21st, 2011 7:56 am

    First off let me say…F*U*CK this website for calling people names when they don’t even know the situation..Secondly everbody has problems.EVERYBODY!!!!!! So don’t tagged any person because you are not perfect either..This man went to war the this shitbag country…We don’t even know what being American is… He came back with problems and noone seem to ensure that his problems were fixed. It takes more than a session with a doctor to heal someone. Of course what he did wouldn’t be right in most of our eyes but in his eyes he was doing the right thing. You may need to open your eyes to see that this type of thing happens to people to are mentally ill. That Arizona shooting is a prime example, when people are fed up they do things they fed up people do…. So on that note how perfect are you..Liar, Cheater, Theft, ……….Yea right. We are praying for Mr. Gordon and hope you get better and get the real help you need…

  8. Rob Taylor on February 21st, 2011 2:33 pm

    A) Actually I am perfect. But your “friend” is a wife beater and we all know real men don’t hit women.

    B)If this is a shit bag country leave.

    C) Most mentally ill people don’t cut cops and beat the shit out of their old ladies – you’re insulting people with mental illness by comparing them with common dirt bag criminals.

  9. A friend o rita's on February 21st, 2011 8:34 pm

    A-> I soooo agreee wid Mr.King.
    B-> To Rob Taylor, aint NO F%$#IN body perfect!!!(n rita aint old)
    C-> What Dunyell did might have been wrong, but that AINT for people like us to judge.(nor wedsites that aint got there facts stright to name call)
    D-> Many mentally unstabe people do do thoose things. They attack people(even they husband/wife)

  10. A friend o rita's on February 21st, 2011 8:35 pm

    Wait a minute…are you the Rob taylor that published this???? or are you his cousin Rob taylor????

  11. Rob Taylor on February 21st, 2011 10:08 pm

    Only morons claim you can’t judge people. You HAVE to judge people. What are you saying that if you knew a pedophile you’d let him near your kids because you wouldn’t want to judge? Grow up.

    I am the one and only, perfect, Rob Taylor. And try writing in English, you’re making us look bad.

  12. SSG on February 22nd, 2011 12:16 pm

    First let me say that I served with This man in the U.S. ARMY!! and we Deployed to kuwait/Iraq twice back to back. He served his country. everyone has their flaws but it is not for you to judge. Everyone has demons to deal with. Everyone dealt with those deployments in their own way. alot of families were broken up and friends lost in between the transition of returning home. You(ROB) obviously don’t know all of what you are talking about. I don not condone D.Gordon’s actions but at the same time you do not know all of the events which led up to his actions on that day! A) people do not just walk into a crowded store with knives because they had a fucking bad day!! B) You lead me to believe that because he is black that he must be on drugs and alcohol. C)mentally ill people do terrible things everyday ex. drown their children in lakes, chop up their children with ax’s in the bath tub, shoot their parents for money may I go on? and all of them did what??? claimed mental insanity!! that’s why they are “mentally ill” so while u have all this time to create this website to bash people why don’t you do me a favor and help us “veterans” get the benefits that we deserve and and get the treatments that some of us need. Thank You!!!

  13. Rob Taylor on February 22nd, 2011 2:35 pm

    Wrong. It is for everyone to judge others by their actions. Stabbing a cop after terrorizing a store isn’t a “bad day” and neither is beating this shit out of your old lady. Since you put veterans in quotes I’ll assume you’re a liar. The point is that millions of mentally ill people in this country abide by the lw everyday, and I’ll bet you this douchebag has nothing more severe than bad character and a drug habit.

  14. .Mrs. Gordon on February 22nd, 2011 8:56 pm

    First of all my husband is not a wife beater or a scumbag! No of you know him to judge him, you all are believing all the hype in the media and as for that old bitch debra calling me a drug addict when have you ever seen me do drugs so stay out of it and as I recall he was never engaged to you so stop lying!

  15. .Mrs. Gordon on February 23rd, 2011 1:38 am

    Rob I assume you have a Phd. or some type of credentials to be able to put labels on someone and as I recall every individual is unique and have different tolerance levels and reactions to what ever they have been subjected to. Rob my husband is not a drug addict and has never been. You are entitled to your opinions but you need to adhere from stating them as facts. I am going through a very traumatic time and his family and everyone who knows his character , so if you can refrain from your tyrants of assumptions it will be greatly appreciated. Dunyell is not any of elementary insults. I usually do not respond to ignorance, but you are just trying to get a reaction and you are the caliber of someone who feeds off provoking situations. Sweetheart you don’t even have the right to comment on him.Have you served your country? Have you been at war? Of course not! Thousands of soldiers have been affected by combat, including my dad that served in Vietnam and told me the stories of all the people he had to kill. It affected him his entire life, so Rob seriously ,you have no right to throw the first stone and basically any!

  16. Rob Taylor on February 23rd, 2011 3:02 am

    Are you retarded?

    We don’t have to “know him” to judge him because he just stole two knives in a Wal-mart and stabbed a cop with one. YOU may not have a moral compass that tells you how to judge people but normal people do.

    Dunyell “threw the first stone” when he committed a crime. I mean are you really saying that when someone is caught red handed assaulting a cop for no reason we can’t judge him? This is why the Black community is falling apart. When I grew up (in East Orange, NJ) me and my cousins were taught to act dignified, to be respectable and to use our morals. Now people like you show up to this crime blog and every other one every single day claiming no one should “judge” people who do horrible things.

    Child molesters, rapists, murderers doesn’t matter. Every goddamn time someone like you shows up to claim everyone should just let it go. But you know what’s funny? When these White people out here start making racist comments about Black folk not raising their kids right then you’re right there I bet trying to say you instill morals in your kid. Well without learning to make judgments on other people’s criminal behavior what morals are you teaching your kids?

    I said this once and I’ll say it to you – I’m so glad I can pass and don’t have to be concerned about how you have made White folks see Black people.

  17. DodiaFae on February 23rd, 2011 4:16 pm

    Wow… WTBFH is wrong with you people??? We’re not supposed to judge? I hope to Hell you’re one of those idiots who will make any excuse to get out of jury duty, because Gods forbid you ever get on a jury where some douche bag has raped a child. With you’re “who am I to judge” attitude, I’m sure he’d be back out on the streets to attack another child in no time.

    Fucking idiots.

  18. DodiaFae on February 23rd, 2011 4:17 pm

    Rob, sorry about the language… I’ve got a bit of a short fuse today where stupidity is concerned. Been reading too many stories at “Bad Breeders”, and have had it up to my eyeballs with defenders of criminal behavior.

  19. Rob Taylor on February 23rd, 2011 5:02 pm

    You and me both. Don’t worry about language here. These scumbags don’t.

  20. A friend o rita's on February 23rd, 2011 8:10 pm

    I was not defending criminal behavior. When i said “you shouldn’t judge someone”, I did not mean “find them guilty” i meant label someone a group, or title they don’t desevre. (Foe ex. just because someone stole from a store, that the person in question is a bad person at heart. No reason whatsoever was there for the name calling. This whole site is really fucked up. (since you don’t mnd language rob) Everything else I have to say…ditto ssgt and Mrs. Gordon.

    And to rob…who exzactly am I makin lok bad?? ifin it u, ill kep rite ahead.

  21. Rob Taylor on February 23rd, 2011 9:33 pm

    That IS defending criminality. Thieves ARE bad people and it is public shaming that keeps people from doing bad things in many cases.

    You’re talking about a man who was arrested for domestic violence then stabbed a cop who was just doing his job and looking to go home to his family – and what we’re supposed to think he’s a stand up guy? You’re advocating immorality at it’s most basic.

  22. Imani on February 24th, 2011 12:35 pm

    My name is Imani and the man you all have been ranting about happens to be my father. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but this is my dad, whom I love deeply….The funny thing I have never seen adults act more childish and I’m 14 years old. Daddy I truly pray you get the help you deserve. The person I keep reading about and seeing on the net and tv is not the person I know. My brother, sister and I have been following the comments and it’s sad. The officer involved did not deserve what happend to him and I hope he is better.

  23. Rob Taylor on February 24th, 2011 4:03 pm

    You’re the first person in Dunyell’s life who cared to even mention the cop. Why do you think that is Imani? And does that mean anything to the rest of the people who live around them?

  24. Imani on February 25th, 2011 7:28 am

    If you look back at, my mother mentioned him. Her name is Regina. As for your question, why? I don’t know I can only speak for Imani.

  25. Rob Taylor on February 25th, 2011 4:11 pm

    In the third person I see. But do you think the family of that officer would have been better off with him dead – because your dad could easily have killed him. For no reason – because he was trying to help your dad. That is a tremendously evil act, no?

  26. Shawn on March 1st, 2011 10:44 am

    I am the brother of Dunyell Gordon…I have been not comedically amused the self serving rhetoric of those who deem themselves worthy to judge..Yes “Rob ” that would be a direct reference to you…I could rant on about your obvious lack of tact and class..but what good would come of that…The bottem line is this..I’ve known my brother 35 years..my entire life..and he was normal until he went to war..when he returned from Iraq there was something very wrong with him mentally..
    Now with that said…my only other statement is this..
    To Rob and the rest of you self-rightous individuals who choose to judge blindly, misinformed,and unfairly..I will leave you with this thought to rattle around in the space between your ears…Sin is barely visible to man…Intent is questionable,but…All is visible to the Lord..Leave the judgement to the only judge that matters

  27. Rob Taylor on March 1st, 2011 12:51 pm

    A) Why is my name in quotes? Do you not believe my name is really Rob?

    B) Many veterans come back home with problems and don’t beat their old ladies and stab cops.

    C) What’s more classless – being disgusted by criminals or defending a person beating their old lady and stabbing a cop?

    Another comment that says only God can judge. What about pedophiles? Should we leave our judgments about them alone and let them teach? What about murderers? Should we let them buy guns because it’d be wrong to judge them once they finished their sentence.

    No one has the right to not be judged by their actions. Christianity doesn’t demand people leave their common sense and good judgment behind. You should have got help for your brother when he beat his old lady but you didn’t want to “judge’ and now he almost died while in the process of trying to kill an innocent man. What would your God say about that?

  28. DodiaFae on March 8th, 2011 12:58 am

    I’m sure that if this guy had done nothing wrong and had been shot by police, these people that are coming in here defending him and saying we haven’t the right to judge would be calling for blood…

  29. KING on March 8th, 2011 8:11 am

    Rob Taylor, I would love to meet you one day so i can give you one of these hitter quitters. I really would love to beat your ass. Off top I see you are mentally retarted and don’t understand life. All I wanna know is have you ever suck dick before or you just think like one. A) If you are not a veteran, don’t talk for one. B) If you are so perfect, why haven’t you fixed this fucked up world. A perfect man made it so a perfect man should be able to fix it. C) Fuck you and DodiaFae, eat a sack of baby dicks

  30. Rob Taylor on March 8th, 2011 12:34 pm

    So you’re sending me threats over the Internet – like a fag. I’m not surprised though. Also not surprised by the fact that you want people to suck off babies, pedophile.

    Hey, sent your IP to the Mauldin police along with a copy of the threat. Maybe your PO can set you straight about what is and is not legal to do on the web.

  31. KING on March 8th, 2011 6:02 pm

    Good I hope they bring me to you

  32. Rob Taylor on March 8th, 2011 7:25 pm

    You can come see me yourself. I live in Mauldin. I’ll be at Allen Arms using the range Wednesday or Thursday. And I frequent Costco. I’m the guy in the camouflage hat with the CCW.

  33. DodiaFae on March 12th, 2011 9:58 pm

    Oh… wow… “eat a sack of baby dicks” huh? How original. What, did you do a search and find out that I’m an anti-pedophile activist, and tried to come up with the worst insult you could muster?

    Not only are you disgusting for being able to put those words together in your head, but I’ve had way worse said to me.

    So, KING of the Douchnozzle, you have no better response to my comments than that, huh? How lame.

  34. Sharon on July 23rd, 2011 12:27 am

    I came across these comments while doing research on Dunyell Gordon, trying to find out the status of his case and wondering if he is accepting a plea or if a sentencing hearing will take place. If so, I want to be there. I’m not going to trash Dunyell Gordon – I don’t care what drove him to do what he did and I don’t care what happens to him. I would like to tell people about my 24-year-son, the deputy who was stabbed. Here is a sadly ironic fact that has not been reported: My son is a second lieutenant in the United States Army besides being a deputy. Mr. Gordon, you stabbed a fellow soldier. Although YOU were shot, my son lost more blood than you did. Our tax dollars paid to airlift you to the hospital. My son got a bumpy ride in an ambulance down 385. As he lost consciousness in the Walmart parking lot, before you rushed him in an attempt to stab him a second time, his last thought was that he had only moments to live. He thought of the girlfriend who would never become his wife and the children he would never have. You came terribly close to ending the life of a wonderful, funny, hard-working, honest, decent young SOLDIER and POLICE OFFICER. What in the world do you think you proved by your actions? You proved to be a disgrace to the United States Army and I am one grateful mother who thanks God that you did not succeed with your plans that day.

  35. tavaris carmichel on January 23rd, 2012 8:52 am

    If that hearing ain’t allready happened I want to be there also. I have no respect for a man who waves butcher knives five feet away from my 4 month son.

  36. A long time friend on June 13th, 2016 11:32 pm

    Hello. I’m not sure if anyone will be able to see this comment since it’s been so many years. However I would like to chime in on some of what I’ve read. I have known Dunyell since 1993.
    The man I knew then had dreams. He wanted to be a leader. He wanted more than working blue collar jobs.
    We had met while both in strange places in our relationships. I had actually invited him over and my on & off again BF came by. Dunyell was understanding. He showed respect to me and didn’t act harsh in anyway. He continued to see me at events and we developed a cool friendship. We always kept it 100 with one another and could talk about anything.
    I had a temper then and could sometimes get pretty intense. I was also protective and a bit jealous. In all the times that I yelled, got demanding and angry, threw my fits….he never called me a name, he never made me feel afraid, he always showed me respect. I even once threw a fit in front of his boys demanding things I needed to feel okay with a situation. He had a little reserve about giving me what I wanted, because of how I approached it (almost in a belittling way), but when push came to shove, he did what I requested. My point is: he was gentle, kind, caring and tried to make everyone happy.
    What I don’t see anyone really speaking about is his PTSD. It’s different than just being mentally ill.
    Dunyell has a compassionate heart. He spent 4 years seeing things no one wants to see. People dying left & right, living in a war zone and having to stay alive. That can take a toll on anyone. I have so many friends who came back with severe PTSD and it was like a shameful issue. The more I talked to soldiers, I began to realize it was almost viewed as being weak to have PTSD and you can’t be a weak soldier. Many tried to deal alone because they got the typical…”it’s just gonna take time to heal!”
    No! Many were just shoved aside like they were a used product and a newer edition came out. Once the PTSD gets in to all areas of life, each second is a nightmare. Car doors trigger flashbacks of bombs, fireworks trigger bullets spraying all around them. It’s rather intense. I have PTSD but for a different reason and I deal with triggers everyday! I get Counseling but it’s still hard to shut down panic once it starts.
    None of us know what he saw. None of us know what he had to do – that was against all of his being – but had to be done to stay alive.
    Dunyell had young children when we met. He loved his kids and was always focused on being a good father. I know he was doing everything he could to return home to family.
    So while Rob bashes him, there are so many components missed. The articles I read stated he had no prior criminal history or run ins.
    When people suffer PTSD, has an intense home life, fractured relationship, they feel even more hopeless.
    The Dunyell I know and remember was NOT trying to harm anyone intentionally. His mind was like scrambled eggs. (Many PTSD use that analogy!)
    He just wanted it to stop. The voices and triggers and constant nightmares living daily in his reality. To him, Walmart was a war zone. He was reliving something he couldn’t control. He was not seeing people for who they really are. He did not see the officer injured as that….he was back in war.

    I had spoke with him right before deployment. I reached out to him due to my health issues and wanted closure. I was kinda mean to him on our last face 2 face conversation. I can still see his sad face and how he walked away from my car! He NEVER lifted a finger or made me afraid of him ever! I wanted to make peace with that memory for myself! I tracked him down! When we talked, he was the same as I remembered. So I know the tour affected him for this to happen. He never hurt anyone unless it was in defense.
    He is not a monster. He cried out for help and it was not there. The medications can make things worse and we all know the warnings with psych meds.
    That day, I believe he was triggered and it went way to far. I feel that he really believed he was having to fight again to live. Somewhere in his mind he was fighting to comprehend reality! But the more your in that delirium of your mind, the more disconnected one becomes.
    Dunyell is not a bad person or a monster. He was a traumatized soldier who came back to a country who forgot to have a plan in place to help purge the experience in a healthy manner. Since this story broke, there have been dozens and dozens of cases! Many story’s on the news! Mass shootings. The Sniper! No one should be so quick to label him if you don’t know what it’s like to experience PTSD on top of an underlying mental disorder that became present during the 1st year of tour. Bi-polar.
    Chemical imbalance greatly affects the way a person thinks. And again: he tried to get help. PTSD: It was treated as a bunch of soldiers having like a flu rather than a life long scar on the mind, heart & spirit.
    I’ve known this person over 2 decades and if I needed his help today, he would do all he could! And I would fear no harm.
    He has admitted his failure and I believe he will once again become a productive human being with a testimony of over coming.
    I believe this story should have been used Nationwide as education to help soldiers and their families who suffer PTSD! God was watching over everyone as no one lost their life. This could have been much worse and I thank God it wasn’t. Dunyell wouldn’t have been able to handle knowing he took anyone’s life because of a mental collapse from pressures and triggers!
    When people are soft nature, seeing the worst of war will affect them in ways we may never truly understand. Let’s try to show compassion and find ways to help before it gets to the point this did.
    Thank You & God Bless
