(ABC)   That town meeting shooting last night? Yeah, that was due to a property dispute between the owner and the town. I mean that was the best way to handle such things, right?   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 260

spamdog: Into the blue again: So it's OK for him to shoot wildly through a wall then storm the building shooting? I am confused.....

That's not what I suggested at all. Don't be an idiot.


Says the guy who defended a murderer.

Thingster: shiatty situation all around it seems.


Nope. He had 18 years to get that property in order. Did you look at any of the pictures out there of the property? Evidently his idea of improvements was getting a dog house for an empty propane tank. Eighteen years and all he did was cover his land with junk, trash, and bodily waste.

Felgraf: PunGent: Satan's Bunny Slippers: LasersHurt: KrispyKritter: Wish i had the balls the Link land owner does.

You wish you had the balls to kill innocent people, eh?

StrangeQ: honestly they got exactly what was coming to them.

Has everyone lost their farking minds or what

Yes.  Farking gun nut freedom lovin murrrricans can KISS MY LILY WHITE FAT ASS

NO ONE deserves to be shot over some crap like this, and those of you cheering it, I hope one day someone you love gets the same treatment, shot by some crazy person because they followed the law and did their jobs.

Fark all you nuts.

Just to play devil's advocate here, "following the law and doing your job", in and of itself...hasn't washed as an excuse since Nuremberg.

There's got to be underlying justice, as well.  Not to Godwin the thread, but plenty of the Nazis' mass-murdering?
Perfectly legal.  They'd made it so.  In D&D terms, you might think of them as Lawful Evil.

Now, no idea what happened here, but it's not automatically the case that the victims were innocent.  Quite likely, but not automatic.

So you know it was the *council members* who got shot? And not, say, folks simply attending the meeting?


Try re-reading what I posted.

CreampuffCasperMilktoast: PunGent: CreampuffCasperMilktoast: So pretty much the shooter will now get free food, healthcare, shelter, television, education, and more. Take note Baby Boomers, not a bad retirement plan right?

Nutraloaf, an alcoholic EMT, a roach-infested cell, whatever Bubba wants to watch on basic cable, and a used Bible are no way to go through life, son...

The Monroe County Correctional Facility, a peaceful rural setting, with an extremely sanitary kitchen that was run by Aramark, and recently replaced by a competitor which apparently has made people happier, since there is a new menu and larger portions. They've hired a private health care firm, which "either meets or exceeds standards."   http://www.privateci.org/pennsylvania.htm  .....evidently the women have a decent choir http://www.youtube.com/wa tch?v=hV2gJOpf51o ...and let's face it, older folks such as the shooter might like a little more physical contact, perhaps even love from Bubba could make him feel special.


I ate Aramark food for a week on a movie set once...I'd rather be in prison, thanks.

Oh, wait...

Satan's Bunny Slippers: PunGent:

Probably not...but that doesn't mean existing laws weren't enforced selectively.

Wouldn't be the first time someone with buddies on the zoning commission wanted property cheap, is all I'm saying.

I'm agreeing with you.

Just still not worth shooting people over.  It's stuff.  I lost all my stuff to my ex.  All of it, including my house, my clothes, my car, my dishes, my cats.  I didn't shoot him.  Thought about it, could have (had access to guns), some people say I should  have.  But I didn't.  No matter how selectively or right out in your face-ly the laws were being enforced, crazy old hoarder guy had no right to shoot them.


You're probably right, in this case.  Still, in my opinion, there comes a point where the individual has the right to stand up against the state, with violence if necessary.  And if some of those state actors are unarmed, that doesn't necessarily change the equation.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: PunGent: Wouldn't be the first time someone with buddies on the zoning commission wanted property cheap, is all I'm saying.

Yeah, that 17 year plan worked out great.


Yeah, this guy was probably over-reacting a smidge.

As opposed to the warm slop they serve at a nursing home? ...or perhaps the oatmeal this guy was probably eating for breakfast/lunch/dinner on a daily basis?

Heh, the last nursing home I visited had pretty good food...of course, it was one of the top-rated on the East Coast, and cost about $10,000 a MONTH.

Prison food probably isn't like that...maybe in Club Fed...

Did you guys really forget?

The old fart was merely standing his ground as was his sacred right under the only important amendment to the Constitution.

It's Skittles all the way down.
