    Waldo County — the place where one can come and get away with murder.  Got another waiting to go to trial — just let them keep crying self-defense!  Never understood this case.  Sixty year old enters the house hollering (not armed in any way)  This guy leaves her alone with the elderly man that he fears she’s going to hurt in order to go to the bedroom closet to retrieve his gun.  No call to the police until after it happens and when the police do get there they have to move her body from the enterance way of the home to enter (wouldn’t this mean that the women was either on her way out of the home or had never really entered the home beyond the entance way to begin with.  Whatever, now he’ll do it again and claim she deserved it — it worked once why not.

    Wow!
    Where does one start with this one?
    Maybe, if he’s coherent enough, he can sell the rights for a book to pay off the civil judgment against him.

      What part didn’t happen…The part where he killed a 60 year old by shooting her in the face, the part where he got away with it, the part where he was found guilty in a wrongful death suit, or the part where he threatened to shoot both his girlfriend and the police.

        Everything that they said that happened that night. Of course they bring up the past. The past is the past. You guys weren’t there!!! So quick to judge when you have no idea what you are talking about!!

          So the dispatcher is lying about hearing the threats?  My grandmother told me that past acts will predict future behavior.  I’m thinking you might be living in a little world of denial.  Your friend has issues probably should have gotten help back with he shot someone old ladies face off in order to shut her up.  The jury got that one wrong.  He shot her in the mouth to shut her up — she wasn’t going after that old man…wasn’t anywhere near him when her face was blown off.  Was found guilty of wrongful death — at least one judege saw past his lies.

          Maybe you can get some t-shirts made up and grab 50 or so supporters and show up at the courthouse — because he’s a good ole’ boy.

    I think BDN should start posting the names of the persons who are doing the bailing out of arrested subjects.  I would like to know just how many are biled out by the same person that had them arrested. Thank You  Having been a police officer, I think people would be surprised at this.
