I think you lecturing her is way out of line. YOU don't know what happened...she was there. Frankly I am tired of your comments about how he should have stayed in his house or retreated back into it.You also have made some comments about the garden. You have no idea about how much it might have meant to him.Was it worth a life....no. But until all of the facts come out....we still have the right to defend ourselves...especially on our own property
don and Tom,
I hope that the readers pay attention to your message. Even though I was not in the military, I have had multiple occations when I have been confronted with firearms.I've been shot at and retreat has saved me....and no , it wasn't US law enforcement. Do NOT confront an armed person!
Opinions respected and thank you for you prayers.
I hesitate to use the reply function because it kind of messes up the timeline progress of the string. But as you can see....I know how =)
I disagree with you and Kim on the leaving the house issue. Dispatcher's orders or not.
As for the rest of your question comments...I think they are valid and will come out in court.
I think Tom's beginning statments are well thought out and fair.
If someone is pointing a gun at you.....assume he intends on using it and take appropriate action. This is a tragic event all around , but I hope people will reserve judgment until all available facts come out in trial. Then let justice be done.
I'll answer the question you put to Teddy......NO !
His ideas , comments , and ability to debate , are so sophmoric that he has to resort to name calling in order to even get noticed.
How in the world you could twist my comments into garden vs human life is beyond me. I speculated that his garden meant enough to him to leave the safety of his house and confront the stranger in his yard. My comments were in response to your and Heather's comments about him staying in his house. As far as the confrontation and shooting, I do not want to speculate.
Mr. Livengood, You have the right to your opinion, but Mr. Voden has the right to a trial and is presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty. You are not judge and jury.
I did exactly what you said. I found nothing supporting Mr. Clayton's comments.
Since I don't live in Pine/Straberry I have been reluctant to comment. I don't know any of the board members except Mr. Pugel. Attacts on him are un-warranted. He is honest and wants what's best for your communities.
To the Schwalms...be careful what you wish for.
What a tragedy. I'm truly sorry for the victim and his wife. From what I've read , he and his wife are nice people that were dealing with serious health issues. But I also know Mr. Voden.
He is small in stature (about 5'-7") and quiet. I know his garden meant alot to him. It's easy for people to say that Mr. Voden should have stayed in his house....and I agree....but I think his garden meant too much to him and made him confront the stranger in his yard.... a much larger and younger man. I'm not trying to take sides , but let's try to be fair. It is just sad all the way around.
Thanks Pat , I need a chuckle now and then =)
