you should do your reporting a little better - Mr. Stogsdill is on the national sex offenders list, has charges for selling cocaine, and he was the one looking to buy weed at Timberline Estates. By the way - there were 5 people in the car who were harrassing Mr. Vanslyke. And the gun was an air soft gun, it's all drama!!!

Even with an Airsoft gun it is still armed robbery. He is a dufus if that is what he did. Doing serious time if he took money and they thought it was a real gun.

I could point a toy gun at you and tell you to give me all of your money and it would still be armed robbery, even if it were a toy gun.

The law is over the IMPLIED danger, not the actual danger. Just like the people that hold up places with their finger in their coat pockets to look like a gun, it is still armed robbery.

So I guess I won't be getting the 1000.00 restitution he owes me for breaking into my van last winter?

I couldnt believe that this was the same guy but now I feel a little safer in my town knowing that riff raff is off the street once again.

It's just funny - maybe the man deserves to be in jail but what about the other man? The storys just don't pan out. After looking into Stogsdills background I wouldn't believe a word that comes out of his mouth. We know that Vanslyke was picked up the next morning in his home not in a parked car drunk like Stogsdill says, guess some may never know.

Well, Felicia, a lot of people who post on these forums don't believe that people change. Sad but true. The little piranas have nibbled away at my ankles before when I tried to suggest that.

There is a lot of dramatization. Really, I don't see why they even had to bring up the sex offender B.S. It wasn't like he molested his way into the place and threaten sexual assault on anyone who dared to move a finger.

Well the report says that there were only two people in the car. Glad you cleared that up for us.

I feel sorry for his family. No matter what the man did or didn't do his family does not need to go thourgh all this. Our prayers should go out to his family. As far as riff raff I did a little research before I even posted on here and found some interesting information as well. You all call someone who steals "riff raff"? What about Mr Stogsdill? He is being charged as of Monday for Larceny in a building.( public knowledge by the way.) And yes I believe people can change but this would be Mr Stogsdill 3rd felony IF convicted. So no one should be pointing fingers at anyone. We have ALL done something we are not proud of. I know I have and I am sure if everyone thinks back they will find something as well. I would not expect anyone to pray for someone who they do not even know. The truth will come out and all ment will get what is coming to them regardless of our comments. I know I am sending my prayers to the family. Thank you!

Funny how all the news articles say there were only 2 men in the car - would you be the one "girl" with the other 4 men that were in the car???

I have known Dan for about 18 years.. He is not all that bad of a person. Yes he made mistakes and yes he should pay for this one. But for some girl to come on here and defend a sex offender you have some serious issues. What happened happened. Like I said I have known Dan for a long time. Do I think he would have shot the man..NO!!!!! Should he pay for what was done?? Yes, but so should the man going there to pick up pot probally for Felicia...
