Ripper (aka brandon) in the news!
    #1274083 - 02/03/03 12:22 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I dont know how many of you have seen this, or if I should have put it in this fourm or in OTD, but since the whole link between him and this fourm, I figured I should post it here, any mods feel free to move it or whatever.

Well, there you go.

You should read it if you have a chance. Just do a search in yahoo or go to the thread posted above to find the link.

The transcript is open to interpretation. I read it and neither feel that chat members egged on Ripper, nor did anyone disuade the persuit to call 911. Granted it's not black and white as you'll find out when reading...like I said it's open to interpretation so no one jump on my case for this.

And even then smoke said he wasnt serious and asked him to stop.
Brandon was trying to kill himself. It is clearly obvios.

If you think Smoke was serious you have obviously never been on IRC.

Wow...some of you guys are really acting like insensitive jerks....

And to be honest with you, a few weeks ago, I may have said some of the same stupid, ill-informed things. However, you can't even begin to imagine the pain that it feels to lose a loved one.

Did Brandon make stupid choices? Yes
Did people in the IRC channel make stupid choices? Yes
Did the doctor who prescribed the stuff make some stupid choices? Yes

Is there anything that could have been done to change the outcome of that night?

Well no one knows for certain, but maybe in previous chats/postings/binges had some of the people he was close with actually taken the problem a little more seriously...maybe

To try to diminish his death by demonizing him for the poor choices he made that night is nothing but a reflection of the lack of intelligence you possess. Brandon was a gifted, caring and incredibly smart individual who made some very poor lifestyle choices. No one knows why exactly, but instead of pointing fingers or slinging mud, maybe you could look in the mirror and figure out how this event might be able to help you grow into a better person.

> Wow...some of you guys are really acting like insensitive jerks...

Rich, the key word is some. Yes, we have some real insensitive assholes here, and it is only my better-self that keeps me from banning a few outright. Please don't judge us by the actions of a few members. I think it is obvious that most of us, here, are good people, and are truly saddened by the loss of your brother, and we are trying to take a lesson from this tragedy and move forward in a positive way. :laugh:

You input, and opinions, are always welcome here, and as far as the assholes go, just do what most of us do -- ignore them! :laugh:

Please don't judge us by our weakest links, and our few missing links! :grin:

This forum, in particular, can at times be like a grade-school playground for the emotionally challenged... :smirk:

I totally agree Rich.  I did not know Brandon at all and his life changed mine.  I have known for some time now how much responsibility we have as servants here.  This has made me re-double my efforts to help others and prevent the misuse of drugs.  :frown:

This is probably just my anger coming out at ignorance but if I were face to face with Smoke2K I would pummel him into the ground for what he did.  Ignorant or not there is NO excuse for that kind of behavior.

God Bless you and your family in this tragic time. :frown:

Papaver...

You know from previous postings that I do not judge you all here with one fell swoop....then I would be the narrow minded asshole.

Many that I have communicated with publicly and privately with from this site have been nothing but supportive (which can be done while still facing the reality of what happened)...so my biggest thanks to you all.

Rich

I know this Rich, from our communications in the past, but sometimes, as an Admin here, I say things for the benefit of all who may be listening -- especially, our weakest- and missing-links... :wink:

You are a good guy, and I appreciate your feedback and input. You are always welcome here, my friend! :laugh:
