Guess that guy won't be egging on anyone else
2003-04-10 12:16:58 PM  

XD Lol sorry.. i had too.
2003-04-10 12:17:29 PM  
That's not easy when you're towing your house...
2003-04-10 12:17:41 PM  
Read the headline as 'edged' his house. Wish someone would edge my house. I would not try to kill them.
2003-04-10 12:17:59 PM  
Well C'mon, the guy egged him on!

So what kind of instrument of death do you drive? :p
2003-04-10 12:18:41 PM  
hey, if those eggs had salmonella in them, which a lot of them do, theyre WOMD... at least more so than anything they found in iraq so far! he's right to run the dude over.
2003-04-10 12:19:02 PM  
THey Edged his house?
So he had a nice trim lawn, and he repaid them by trying to run them over? That bastard!
2003-04-10 12:19:42 PM  
My girlfriend hardly ever plays with my "instrument of death" anymore.
2003-04-10 12:19:42 PM  
He'll have to shell out some big bucks. Could have fought back but he was chicken. Humm local yolkal.
2003-04-10 12:20:06 PM  
He shouldn't have done that.

"neighborhood teens egged his house on Halloween"
"The mother and sister of victim Robert Campbell, 40"

Didn't know 40 years of age was considered a teenager

"God bless you," Rosser said before embracing prosecutor Brian Cavanagh in the hall outside the courtroom. "Now maybe we can get some peace."

Yes, because we all know god wants people to be locked away.

Egging houses makes baby jesus cry.

Dodge Dakota = instrument of death

Ford: Like a Rock

Dodge: Like a Knife

do not covet thy neighbours eggs, lest ye fall foul of his righteous anger and be wrought asunder by the revving chariot of death

"Eggie-weggies and a bit of the ol' ultra-violence, I should think..."
2003-04-10 12:26:59 PM  

Like the Movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" but deadlier....

Dodge Dakota = "instrument of death."

Funny, they list that as a design feature in any of their advertising....

Ok, dude pulled a "D-Fens", and for that he deserves to be punished. BUT, I wonder what kind of heroes the dudes who pushed him over the edge are feeling like right now? Sad fact is they will go unpunished and no doubt reserve exactly no blame for themselves in this matter.

2003-04-10 12:31:18 PM  
Sounds like this had happened to this guy a few times before. Also seems like he is a complete tool incapable of defending his house. Should have returned fire with urine-balloons instead of a truck.
2003-04-10 12:32:24 PM  
A punk kid is killed? Good
A SUV driver off the road? Good

Sounds like a win win to me

You see, because his glasses had broken earlier, he couldn't see on the dark street.

And because "Proud to be an American" was so loud on his sterio, he didn't hear the thump when he hit the guy.

And because he was totally numb from all the booze, he didn't feel the thump either.

Clearly not his fault. Clearly.
2003-04-10 12:40:41 PM  
Make that stereo.

Do not try this at home! Eggs may cause you to be hit by an instrument of death![image from too old to be available]

"Why me, why me, whyyyyyyy ?"

I'd say there are plenty of losers....

did anyone actually read the article? Sounds like he got screwed. Accident expert says no evidence he hit the guy, guy ran at the truck, it was dark and wet outside. Sucks.
2003-04-10 01:57:16 PM  
Sure, this guy kills one kid with his "instrument of death" and gets the book thrown at him, while this guy walks free:

I wish he could've mowed the whole bunch down.
2003-04-10 02:25:07 PM  

Yeah, I don't think anyone actually read this article!
Sounds like the guy got completely farked!

He lost his glasses, this other asshat ran at the truck, slipped, and got run over.
2003-04-10 02:45:43 PM  
It's all so pathetic. Pent-up-rage old-coot on the block has enough and accidently(?) kills likely-mulleted nascar-loving uncle of local shiat-snot hot-head kid.

Makes me even more glad I don't live in Fla.
2003-04-10 02:49:04 PM  
It was obviously a suicide.
2003-04-10 03:27:40 PM  
Eggs don't kill people, trucks kill people.
2003-04-10 06:50:53 PM  
Can't believe Uncle Fester there is only 59. Jezus, he looks like he'll be dead soon.

As for the dirtballs he visited that night, everyone and their uncles came jumping out of the trailers to engage the old fart in mutual combat. Didn't occur to anyone to just pick up the phone and report the plate numbers of drive-by egger.

That neighborhood needs a sniper.
2003-04-11 01:50:59 AM  
I feel sorry for the old guy! After reading the entire article, I really believe it was an accident. He should have been convicted of manslaughter rather than 2nd degree murder, imho! =(
2003-04-11 10:08:28 AM  
Not having any info other than what was in the story, I agree w/ FarkJunkie. Where was the proof of "depraved mind" needed for 2nd degree murder?? Was he a regular Fark reader or what?? Shoulda bin ManSlaughter. I see Appelate Court dates being set now. (Or maybe the judge will just slap him on the wrist and it won't be worth the time to appeal.)
