Sick of ‘poor Billy’ stories

Dear Editor:This letter is in response to Jim Tomberlin’s letter to the editor on April 4, regarding Bill Seawell.What a crock! I am so sick of all the poor Billy stories. Jim, you seem to forget that Seawell attempted to kill all of the residents of ACI by blowing them up … did you miss that? For your information, many people tried to help that human and he refused. In case you are not aware, people are responsible for their own actions, so do not blame society – that is a cop out. Furthermore, he did have a family.Anything else you missed? Oh yes, and if you were so concerned, how come you did not “help” him? Then you attempted to compare yourself to the prophet Ezekiel of the Old Testament. I promise you that you are no Ezekiel. Terry TreadwellAspen
