Quote of the day–Alice Marie Beard

I had the perfect chance to put a bullet thru the back of his head. I regret that I did not do so.

How easily I could have pretended to stumble, shooting him in the back of the head. An accident. Folks would have felt sorry for the young girl and might have wondered why the old man had been so careless. A blameless tragedy. I could have done it so easily.

[I’m not sure what to say about this. I understand why she says that. But I wonder if there would be regrets for taking the action she didn’t and who is to say that a five ten year old is sufficiently mature to make those decisions. When confronted with immediate threat of death of permanent injury, sure. But this is a little different.

Update: Ms. Beard informs me she was ten when the opportunity occurred.–Joe]

  1. More than a little. Both my daughters are grown and I think they did not ever experience this. I suppose I could be wrong as children will rarely tell in these situations. My son is 8 now, and this is still a concern to me.

    I’m not sure what I would do if I run across a pedophile. In my mind there is no critter lower than one.
