I informed Mark. He was thankful to have been made aware. They weren’t friends but they shared some space and time for many years.
why did the police kill him
That’s so sad. He was always nice to me. Complimenting my novice woodworking projects. I’m not sure I had a lot in common with him, although politically universal healthcare and criminal justice reform are probably the two most important topics to me. So we always agreed on that. I’ll miss him. Thanks for sharing.
Will loved Pokey LaFarge. Something in the Water was the second song he posted to BBAD and I did love this song, very much.
There is no question that Will did some thing or things to bring this event on. There’s also no question in my mind that the police did not tell the whole truth in their account. These two facts are not in conflict. When I say I believe Angie, I don’t mean that the police murdered Will. I don’t think she believes that, either. According to her, they just didn’t tell the truth on every point (and no, I’m not going to go into detail…she can if she chooses but it’s not my place to be speaking for her). She definitely also questions whether they could have dealt with this situation without using lethal force. I have no opinion on that as I was not there.
I deleted Bill’s post in this thread. I will leave them in other threads, but I don’t plan to respond.
every situation is better dealt with without any lethal force!
I was really sad to hear this news, Will was always the gentleman to me.
Rest in Peace Will.
Angie sent me some photos. I have to go to a church service but I will be back in a few hours and will post them.
Here’s a photo Michele had of Will when he was young.
Here is a shadowbox Will’s daughter made for him. It meant a lot to him. He sent it to me to post some time ago.
Here are the photos Angie sent me for posting. Beautiful family.
Here’s the chair Will talked about buying not long ago.
Will had a long and interesting life. It’s his time to rest now.
I thought Will was pro gun control and yet wielded with a gun? If he really had a serious psychological problem (which would explain a lot of his behavior on this board) plus an alcohol problem and especially being pro gun control, then he shouldn‘t possess a fireweapon. Thank God he didn‘t hurt someone else.
Will was not pro-gun-control. He owned a gun for as long as I can remember, well back into the 90s at least. Probably much longer.
WHOA! Thats crazy. However, I respect everyone chosing his or her decision to leave this place. In my family I had such a case, too and I still don’t know of his particular reason because his widow wife wouldn’t tell me.
“He was struggling with mental problems”
I tell you! Rumors are out indicating he even might have been lefty!
(I hope I don’t get censored for this)
Well, sorry, MyBigMoon, I hope You have finally found Your shalom, Your inner peace where ever You are now. No worldly tyranny and power can oppress or bully you in the realm You are now and I envy that a little. If You read this, I surely enjoyed arguing on bbad with You, especially You “obscene” responses to my pro-Trump postings. Those made me pretty happy, so blessings go out to the realm You dwell now.
PS: I dig Your hippie hairstyle
It’s been 6 hours and 15 days….
very nice that you keep in contact with her
