    Lady, I grew up in the same area Mr. Dye was from- don’t try to sell that bullshit around here.

    Mr. Dye got ratpacked by 20+ overprivileged horse riding pieces of shit. Those assholes nearly succeeded in beating Mr. Dye to death, but he managed to defend himself and his property from the trash trespassing.

    Everyone knew and accepted it as a clear case of self defense, then the family of the dead trespasser made it an issue Mr. Dye was in an MC. Then the tape evidence showing Mr. Dye was clearly assaulted mysteriously disappeared from State’s Evidence. Only then was the DA’s Office able to railroad Mr. Dye, and they still only barely got a conviction.

    If you’re going to tell the story, tell it all.
