      Sounds like someone has an anger management problem. The world wouldn’t need Anger Management if we had Stupidity Management.

    So is it Lynscott or Linscott, it appeared four times in the article spelled both ways twice.

      It’s Linscott. And other familiar names will surface as the investigation continues.

      What do you mean, the Stockton, Searsport aera is usualy fairly quiet. Compared to many other areas of the state.

        It’s quiet, except when it’s not. And then the same old names appear again and again.

  • dee

    maybe it was a attempted robbery home invasion.

  • I take it the man who died was beating the crap out of that Camry which means he had some sort of weapon and if he charged the home owner with said weapon or refused to stop beating the crap out of the Camry the home owner shot him.

    • Well, detective, Steve McCausland and the Stockton police can call off the dragnet and enjoy a long Holiday week off now that you’ve solved this one. And you, back to CSI reruns.

      • I don’t watch CSI or any of those other shows. I just used a little common sense to come to my conclusion and I might be wrong but I’m sure those busted windows have something to do with it.

    Beat the windows out of the car.
    Oldest punk trick in the book.
    Didnt work out too well , this time.

    • I agree.. thats what it looks like. Still, as Americans we have the right to protect our own lives and and property. But is a Toyota Camry worth a persons life? I dont think so. But there is still MUCH to learn about this case.If somebody smashed the windows out of my car.. I wouldn’t shoot them. But if they charged me full force with a baseball bat, I’d probably draw a firearm and fire low center. Apparently this person fired their weapon in a well placed area. One shot one kill. Wish they had more details… But either way…. I bet it was a STUPID fight, and some guy is dead… Not worth it.

      • Especially that Camry it looks like the house……a POS!

        If someone is destroying or stealing your property it should be entirely legal to go out and put 3 in the hat. Defense of property should be as legal as defense of life.

        It used to be that way before the bleeding hearts took over.

        • Anonymous

          Bleeding hearts, bloody wounds,blood vendetta, blood sacrifice (the red stripes on Old Glory, right?); we just love the idea of blood-letting don’t we? Ain’t it the bloody truth? “Three in the hat,” “one low and center”, “blow a hole big enough to kick a football through”….. and so it goes.

            Back when people were allowed to protect their property there was a lot less lawlessness and people were a lot more polite.

            Or are you willing to just stand by and watch people steal your stuff?

      Something like 2/3 of Maine is north of Bangor so this arguably took place in the south of the state.

    Why does the BDN have homicide in the headline when no charges have been filed? Maybe it was self defense

    • Anonymous

      Definition of homicide: “hom·i·cide . n. 1. The killing of one person by another. 2. A person who kills another person.”

      Even if self-defense, it is still called a homicide.

        Ya, I was way wrong

    • Anonymous

      Homicide doesn’t mean a crime happened.

    • you’re confusing murder and homicide.

  • I know the guy that died either way didn’t deserve it

    • You were there?

      • No.but my little brother watched the whole thing

        • Anonymous

          What “whole thing” are you referring to? Was there an extended altercation near the car, or did the deceased also have a weapon, or were they having a peaceful, friendly, visit up until the shooting, or was there money or drugs or a woman involved? What does your little brother have to say about it that we aren’t getting from the BDN article?

        • PaulNotBunyan

          So you gave us your opinion but no details as to what your brother says?

          • The cops have talked to my brother and he hasn’t said much.to me about the whole.thing.at all he is still upset

        • Dolfin527

          If your little brother watched the whole thing that means he was THERE when it happened, so you just incriminated your little brother! Wonder if the 20+ cops that were there know about him?

    Whats wrong with this picture?

    When a black guy in a southern Maine community shot someone on his property in the middle of the night, he was immediately charged and arrested,put in jail,convicted of murder, and has never seen the light of day since,

    In ALL of Maine history, the only defendant to get life in jail for a crime that did not end in murder, was a black defendant.

    Everyone complains drug dealers are always getting suspended sentences and a couple of years in jail at most. Except for a black drug dealer 3 years ago in Somerset County. A black drug dealer got 10 years jail.

    Several years ago, a pregnant black female went to a store in Hancock County.
    A group of white males harassed her,One white male actually kicking her to the ground. The white male took off before police arrived. He hid with friends for 3 days. He was charged for the assault , The other white males in the group outside the store, were never charged. The friends that hid the racist assaulter for 3 says, they were never charged for harboring a criminal.

      If you want to go that route,look at the pics of the criminals.Car jacking,drug dealing,etc.Are you saying that he only ones that get their pics in the paper are black?

    • What are you racist?

        Maine judges are lenient and give out suspended sentences, except when a black face is the defendant, then Maine judges are no longer lenient and give out full and or harsher sentences.
        How does that make me racist for pointing it out?

      What is the name of the black person you are referring to that shot someone on his porperty in the middle of the night? details please.

    • Anonymous

      I guess by the “facts” of your story it would be very stupid for any black person to move to the state of Maine, especially those considering perpetrating a crime. I am so sick of all this b.s. about how black people are targeted and the number of black people in jail is disproportionate to the percentage of black people in society. The reason there are so many black people in jail is because so many of them in our inner cities choose a life of crime. Now don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of black people who contribute way more to society than their white counterparts. It’s just that the population base is in the inner cities and this is where the majority of black people are involved in some sort of criminal element.

      • Anonymous

        I agree to a certain degree more blacks are in jail because a higher proportion of blacks commit crimes. But that is not my point.

        My point are whites are getting slapped on the wrist treatment in Maine courtrooms by Maine judges and light treatment from the law, while the full extent of the law and the full extent of jail time is applied to black defendants. in Maine courts by Maine judges.

        Apply the full treatment of the law and full extent of jail time to whites, and the validity of black racist Maine courtrooms and racist Maine judges can no longer be made.

            The Amity guy killed 3 people for life sentences.

            A black male was given a life sentence in a Maine courtroom by a Maine judge for a crime that did NOT result in a death

            Name one white person given a life sentence in a Maine courtroom by a Maine judge for a crime that did NOT include a death?

            You wont find one example.

          I bet you believe that Whites who voted against Obama are racist and blacks who voted for him are not. I only say that because you base your conclusions off of so little evidence.

    So where’s Tucker now? Sitting at his house able to do this again to someone that may confront him about shooting their friend or relative? I’m just curious I dont see in the story that he was arrested or anything so?

    • Anonymous

      he has not been charged,therefore he in currently free.if any body confronts him about this at his home,i guess they get the Nov. darwin award

      • rdc_assistant

        well it would be rather stupid to go and confront him but some people ya know?…. I was just wondering thanks :)

    • Probably home cleaning his gun waiting for the next fool to show up.

    Who is to say the deceased was a “victim” ? Poor headline choice.

    • PaulNotBunyan

      We can at least say he was a victim of the lead that came out of that barrel. We don’t have enough information yet to know if there was a victim at the other end of that gun.
