Thank You. If you knew Leonard you knew what kind of person he was and how much of an impact he made on peoples life. I don't understand how you can walk free after your second charge and this one killing someone. People who abuse animals get more time, you spank your kid in Wal-Mart you get more time. Tonya won't be out for long and she will get her ass beat down. She doesn't know me or what I look like which is going to make it even easier. And if you do come down from Oklahoma and see her out immediately call the cops.

I am not from Eureka Springs and do not know any of the people involved. As a complete outsider with no knowledge of the people other than what was posted here, I have to comment. To Leo's family I am truly sorry for the loss of what had to be a great guy just judging by the people that came here to his defense. I realize this happened over a year ago but hopefully Tonya's family still reads this. I lost my sister to a drunk driver. I had to watch her kids growing up without their mother for so many important events in their life. They have become great adults despite the guy that killed her and i suspect Leo's will with such a great supporting family. For Tonya's family, mother or not, to come here and publically say she has forgiven Leo for the events of that night are so harsh. I can't imagine the type of person that it would take to even type that out. I understand the bond between a mother and daughter but that bond does not go any further. I can almost gaurantee these people will never forgive your daughter for what she did or forgive you for the comments you have made. You seem to be very caught up in how you and your family are perceived by the way you constantly wanted them to forgive your daughter. and then you throw up in their face that you somehow own Eureka Springs. If that doesn't make you come across as a self centered jerk, I don't know what does. You can pretend you somehow understand what they have gone through but by your posts you have no clue. If you had a clue you would understand that everyday they have to live their life without him and that your daughter does not deserve their forgiveness. There is nothing she can do to even begin to make this wrong into a right and their anger to her is justified. For you to come here and try to put the blame somehow on him or anyone else but your daughter is sickening. I hope the people of Eureka springs have read your comments here and know the type of person you are. If you had wanted their forgiveness so bad, why in the world would you try to blame him. Sorry for the rant but I do know what his family is going through and I can tell you after 15 years it hasn't gotten any easier for me to forgive the person that killed my sister.

I am coming to ES on vacation. just wanted to see topix to see what was going on there. So you read my whole post and what you took from it was to doubt whether I lived in Eureka Springs or not. Well i didn't really believe my post would make a difference to you but I did want to give the perspective from an outsider looking in. I don't feel like a total outsider because I do know what the Beck's are going through. The one thing that is different from my situation is the fact that I didn't have to deal with the guys mother wanting my forgiveness for her son killing my sister. I think she just accepted the fact that God can forgive for that but me or my family can't or won't.

Sorry for your loss but,both were drunk! Both made a terrible choice. Both paid a price. I too have lost family to alcohol. You may not like this comment, but it is true. Both were stupid one paid with their life the other is paying a price by living in jail, and has to live with what happened forever. The ones I feel sorry for are those that have lost a loved one and not the ones that made a stupid choice as in drinking and driving or riding with a drunk driver. I truly feel sorry you lost a brother and for the girls family loosing her, but I do not feel sorry for your brother or the girl driving because they both could have avoided all the losses with a simple phone call.
