Alcohol was involved in this case and as it is so often associated with domestic
violence, traffic accidents, and criminal activity. It’s a well known fact
that the use of any amount of alcohol impairs judgement. Remove alcohol from
society and incidents of domestic violence, etc. would drop drastically.
It’s a shame that society continues to support the use of it.
Tangential thought: just how successful are the court ordered "anger
management" and other "therapeutic/behavioral changing" classes?We often read that they are part of sentencing for criminal actions,
sometimes in lieu of jail time or fines or in this case a plea in abatement.Just wondering if they are worth the time and money.
From the article:"I don't know what was in his head,"
Sandy Youd said Thursday. "I don't understand why and I never
will.""Rhedd Youd became more agitated as they discussed an
ongoing affair..."Don't understand? Really?
Why? Look up adultery. 3 other news sources can give you that answer.
It's so sad to hear of stories like this. People getting stressed out and
having nowhere they feel they can turn to for help.As for the
question of why, that part seems at least partly obvious - she was having an
affair from what has been reported and hinted at in this article, and he started
beating her up for it. He was arrested and decided that if he wanted to hurt her
somehow, he had to go big.It doesn't explain the other part of
the why, which is why he felt like he had nowhere else to go or that escalating
it doesn't make it better. Drinking certainly doesn't de-escalate the
I can understand how this happened. Alcohol, an affair, fighting all day is a
good precursor for something violent or bad to happen. Condolences to the famil
in their loss.
"Our society is approaching the point of lawlessness."No,
violent and property crime is at all time lows. Despite the cries of
the chicken littles, things are better than ever.
What they were having a violent argument about prior to this horrific act has
not been discussed, to my knowledge, but that's her business to disclose or
not. Emotions can run deep..love vs hate/rage..and can be sparked
instantaneously. Best let the matter go, remember the good, and forget the bad.
There is always a solution to every problem --- Some are good and some are bad
--- apparently he felt this was the one to try.----- however in finding
solutions we each need to explore as many solutions as we can and then pick out
the best one that will work --- Not easily done when upset or alone with out
"Why?"To someone feeling stress and pain, especially in a
domestic violence case, their only thought can often be to show their partner
how much pain they are feeling and end that pain.Seems like he is
remembered as a kind, generous, loving man which makes a little twisted sense
because those who love greatly can also feel great pain which can overcome
What a horrible criminal episode. Something must be done to take domestic
violence seriously in our community so that incidents like as not repeated. Our society is approaching the point of lawlessness. As Abraham Lincoln
famously stated "Whenever the vicious portion of the population shall be
permitted to gather in bands of hundreds and thousands, and burn churches,
ravage and rob provision stores, throw printing presses into rivers, shoot
editors, and hang and burn obnoxious persons at pleasure, and with impunity;
depend on it, this government cannot last."When even airplanes
are being used as instruments of domestic violence, no reasonable person can
deny that a crime wave is upon us. The warnings of Lincoln are not being heeded.
"‘Why?’ Wife of pilot who crashed into Payson home may never
find answers"Does not really matter if they ever find answers
'why?', as there really is no acceptable or reasonable answer for what
