    Still think this was a rush to judgment? Watching the fb video of 3 eyewitnesses made it pretty clear this man is a danger to society. Now someone has been attacked. When a person pulls out a knife a threatens you or your animal, you take it seriously.

    Lol...just saw it.

    that’s why I used quotes around Armed and Dangerous.


    geez, I better not hike with my fiddle. I often take it in businesses with me when it’s too hot to leave in the car. One day someone’s gonna think I have a weapon.

    This sounds like a lot of peevish paranoia to me, what ever happened to "mind your own business" and "forgive and forget"?

    I've never seen such judgmental, intolerant and overly jaundiced hair trigger reactions as exists especially around the AT. Unless you fit into the "good" stereotypes that get left alone, you could easily be wrongly branded and stigmatized by people and reported. Life is full of thousands of types of people, why are people so quick to judge and report stuff?

    I agree that people can be unfairly judged. Including how you are currently judging me.

    As the OP, I felt I was non-judgmentally passing on interesting information. Information that was originally published in a (normally) credible news source... which has been done thousands of times on WB. Specifically, I kept thinking about the group of people who were held at gun point at a shelter a few years back. And given that I normally backpack alone, it is info that I would want to have.

    BTW, I have already requested this thread to be deleted.

    Way to judge the entire South there buddy. Congrats!
    While searching for that unknown edge in life, never forget to look home. For the greatest edge you can find in life is to stand in the protective shadow of those who love you.

    I edited that; you called me on it, you are right and I was wrong and ask for forgiveness.

    Guilty as charged, I can be vociferous based on how I see stuff.

    I'll take a page from Emerson's essay. Ralph-Waldo-Emerson-quote-about-speech-from-Self-Reliance-1a2835.jpg

    I have never smoked pot; I believe it has medicinal value. I dealt with an older brother who used every single illegal and legal drug out there where my father filed criminal charges against him finally, which Bob saw as a bolt from God. He has been in AA and recovery for over 30 years now, is married and has two kids.

    Do I regret going public on the "pot party"? I don't know. If you go to that section in Kent you can see how the USFS blocked off the parking area that was where I saw the cars with huge boulders and now a gate, I don't know if what I posted had anything to do about that. But I also went public with the laundromat closure contacting a newspaper and as a result she reopened that to hikers. I am just one of many voices.

    On this poor guy, he needs advocates. The rich kids who were having their drug party probably needed a visit by law enforcement. As usual the wealthy get much better treatment than the poor.

    And on my slam against the south vs. the north clearly there is a lot of hair trigger criticism all along the trails irrespective of geographical zones. People need to know their rights as the Constitution can't fight for you without strong initiative.
