Spencer Anderson is my former son in law, and he is nothing like the papers are painting him out to be. He raped my daughter at 15, then told her that we didn't love her only he did, so she married him. He then took her and our first grandchild to WI and refused to let us see or talk to them for over a year. She left him numerous times only to have him threaten to take the children from her forcibly if she did not return. One Halloween he tried to kill himself, our daughter, grandson and baby granddaughter (Summer A) by steering the car into oncoming traffic. He somehow got onto a military installation when we had taken Charity there and talked her into leaving with him again.
We supported them for the better part of their marriage, not for him but for our daughter and grandchildren. TO call this man "heroic" or imply he is something special is an outrage to me. As Kyndra said, a background search would have been prudent in this instance. Why was he on horseback and not driving? Why didn't he have a license? Did he have papers for the horses he had with him? Just a few questions I would have wanted to know before printing an article of this type.
