Will came into the house with one of those looks on his face. “Randy’s been shot”
“a state cop shot him a little while ago”
as I am already headed for the door with nothing but keys to the truck. I had to get to Melissa, Randys sister.
Randy doesn’t carry a gun. Randy walked everywhere he went, a drunk and a car still don’t mix. When he needs to sleep, he sleeps. If it’s beside of the road, oh well. Never much traffic on that road anyway. So beside of the road he lay sleeping. But, being a drunk, he is not real popular with some of the folks in the community. So 911 is called. Randy must have been much too obnoxious and loud while he was passed out don’t ya know.
KENTUCKY STATE cop arrives, gets Randy roused up enough to search Randy… said Randy had 3 coats on…… finds NOTHING…. NO GUN …NO WEAPON …… then arrests him for public intoxication…..puts this man…..the one that was passed out just moments before…. into the back seat of his KENTUCKY STATE car.
you ever been arrested? ya ever seen anyone arrested? what about on tv? i thought so. what does any cop do when he arrests someone?
mmmmm puts handcuffs on the person he is arresting maybe?….
now…..remember…..the cop had already searched Randy…….
Randy rummages thru 5 layers of clothes [3 coats, t-shirt -shirt] and manages to have enough self-control and skill to pull a well hidden gun out, without being seen, and points it at the cop….. Randy and cop struggle over gun…..a shot is fired…..
WHOOOAA….wait a second! HOW DID Randy pull out a gun….. with his hands cuffed behind his back? How did he engage in a wrestling match with cop…..with his hands cuffed behind his back? HOW DID THEY EVEN STRUGGLE WITH COP IN FRONT SEAT, RANDY IN BACK? WHY was the only way that cop could see to get out of this life/death situation [excuse me while i puke]…..is to pull his gun…..and fire…..point blank ……into Randys chest. WHY DID THE DUMBASS COP LET RANDY OUT OF THE BACK SEAT????
This ‘PUBLIC SERVANT. PROTECTOR OF LIFE’ [sorry…puking again] did as many of them do……take advantage of the situation. The adrenaline gets to pumping and they feel POWER ……SMUG, SELF RIGHTEOUS…. POWER OVER LIFE AND DEATH… POWER…..GOD-POWER
so very ironic. That KENTUCKY STATE COP shot Randy within a mile of where his brother had been walking home one night, 25 years ago. Some jerk drove by and hit Ernest Lee and kept going of course…didn’t want a traffic ticket. Ernest Lee lay on the edge of the road, alone, knocked out.
the loaded coal truck came barreling down that dark, lonely, foggy road. and run over Lee where he lay. Ernest Lee never seen what was coming.
that was hard. so hard. and now….same stretch of rode. 2 brothers. the only 2….
Gee, just can’t figure out why they call em PIGS. Oh! They did punish that cop severely. He is on disciplinary leave WITH PAY. oh! ouch! don’t cha know thats gotta hurt!
Randy, may you rest in peace my friend. You lived with us so many times I once wondered if you were a permanent fixture in our home! Hey Randy, if you see Danny, tell him I will see him soon, and that I love him.
Thanks Randy, you are still one of the best friends we ever had.
