I work in corrections. I see Flippens type everyday. So though I never met Flippen in person I have in a round about way. They deserve noting besides to rot in the back of a jail cell or execution.As stated I will make no further comments on the whole Flippen matter, but the facts are clear. Neither myself, nor yourself, nor anyone know exactly what happened on the mountain that night EXCEPT that a crazed Flippen murdered an innocent young woman and mother (with her daughter watching) by shooting her to death as she hid in a closet. We know from the evidence that Flippen as caught loading her bullet riddled dead body into the trunk of a car by responding police, with whom Flippen immediately got into a running gunfight, wherein Flippen killed one of the deputies, injured another, and was himself mortally wounded. A few minutes later Flippen was killed either accidentally or on purpose by the surviving deputy he had just tried to murder.
Don't know for sure, of course, but you sound like a person inside the law enforcement or corrections community. Your rancor against Anders seems misplaced and myopic. If I am right in my guess about your occupation, it would seem wise to me that instead of using emotion to judge the events on the mountain, you instead use compassion and a professional conclusion that perhaps the shooting of Flippen was simply an accident, not intentional homicide.
After all, you could be involved in an event not of your making the next shift you work, and decent society owes its agents, such as law enforcement officers, the benefit of the doubt.
Not threats, jail, and a holier than thou attitude when things go wrong, as they did on the mountain that night.
Also, let's not forget the Aryan Brotherhood gaggle of morons later tried to have Anders and other cops killed.
PS. I do not know Anders, but have had considerable insights on the Flippen crew.
As for Anders it you believe it was an accident that he shot Flippen you are sadly mistaken. He pulled his gun and walked up to Flippen and shot the dude. No accident..that was INTENTIONAL! Flippen was already in custody. He posed a threat to no one, heck he was even injured already. Thats law enforcment 101 (once the threat is surpressed its over. Holster you weapon and wait for back-up. But no Anders decided he was the judge, jury and hangman. How you can defend him is beyond me. I will NEVER give him the benefit of the doubt because the video showed MURDER doesnt matter the circumstances Anders is a lowlife, piece of trash murderer. I hope to one day be able to tell him that to his face.
