Thanks to every one who voted for me for CushCity 2006 Best New Author Award. I made the Top Ten out of 130 nominations. I could not have done this without you and especially Georgia Peach, one of the sweetest persons in blogland, and one of my greatest fans, 15 year old Derrick... What's next? Book Clubs will make the final decision. Again,






Deadbeat Dad......

He killed 4 people and wounded one, raped and threatened another, before killing himself. Why!

Because he was upset that he had to pay back child support to the tune of $362.46 every two weeks leaving him with $200.00 per pay period to live. This pissed him off. He couldn't pay his rent, let along other expenses.

He said it was an error. He wasn't the children father even though his name was on the birth certificates.

Questions: Why didn't he just kill him self? Why kill four people because he failed to take responsibilities for his children years ago? Click here to read the story.

See this is when you wish, good ole fashion ASS whuppins was still in place, instead of locking them in a cell somewhere, where they do factory work.
A daily ass whuppin, with one of them thick leather construction belts!

No one could ever condone what this man did. However, for the record, an investigation into his background indicated that he had suffered from severe depression for many years and had been prescribed some pretty heavy duty medication. It's unclear whether he was still on his meds when these tragic acts were committed. Given his salary and the types of jobs he worked, chances are great that he was either uninsured or underinsured.

Those who knew this man, including the woman whose life he spared, say that he was not a violent person.

One of the most amazing things to me - and one reason the police couldn't find him before all the carnage was done - was that this man took a public bus to each location, including the store where he obtained the ammunition.

My prayers go out to all of the families affected, including the man's family and his children. They'll have to live with this for the rest of their lives.

Praise God for the employee who thought fast enough to wheel the elderly co-owner into a freezer to keep him from getting shot.

Again, nothing condones what the shooter did. This is truly a tragedy for many, many people.

Congrats on your Cush City award!

There's never a good reason to commit a murder suicide... but seeing that he had so many issues, I doubt that he could've been much of a father if he wanted to.

Wicked is in every man but there is never a rational reason for senseless murders but we live in a society of pop a pill for everything right? so I am sure they will find a medical reason but bottom line is pure wickedness!

Wow, what a awful situation. It is so scary, you never know what is in store or what you may hear about next. That's one good reason to just stay close to God.

Okay the man was paying three times as much child support. He killed all those people because they was treating him cruel and unfair. so what happens when you take that last straw you know the one that breaks that camel hump you explode and if your mad you will take it out on everyone. Welp! they are with God now the old man that is still living it must not have been his time to go or God just saw fit for him to stay a suffer with the thought of 'Only if he treated the man with respect then he wouldnt have cost him his happiness.
