First off, what you posted was that Bruce was a drug dealer, this is not true. Hence, slander. Second, you sure through a lot of names around, most of the time when people do that they are trying to look more important than they are. I have spoken to Lt. Samualson not Captain Samulson. Please give me Ken Lasker's phone number and I would be happy to call him to find out who you are. But, you know who I am, why can't you tell me who you are?

Samuelson was promoted last two month ago by Rex Rader, and although Todd did indeed have seniority, the younger Bob Samuelson has indeed been promoted to Captain, and Iassiccson is back in uniform, but the first shift Supervisor, and I believe, still lead detective. Lasker's in the book, and he always does those catchy little ads for Burgett and Robbins for Cable 8. He's a natural in my opinion, unlike Kevin Lauhmer, who is obviously high and using cue cards. Anything else I can help you with?

And how the Hell do I know who you are? Because you use the name Barbra, and say you are someones sister? AND? You got me babe: Never heard of ya. Please believe that. When I say "Who are you?" I mean it, but like you said, in a rhetorical fasion. Who are you, and who cares? Be careful, lest you become the one who is doing the actual harassment.

Hey case you do want to take this guy "Ping Pong" to court, you can't sue him for slander--that's only for oral defamation (for example, radio). Since this is an Internet posting, you'd have to sue him for libel, which is much more serious than slander, but more difficult to prove.

Yeah, and his mugshot they used on Cable 8 was from his most recent arrest: NON-PAYMENT of child-support! This is a matter of public record, so I think we are "allowed" to say this, without the bleeding-hearts-club sounding off. Oh, but "He loved his kids, blah blah blah. There will always be those to defend the miscreants of our society. Just as there will always be Phesters, DUHH's and PING PONG's (I say they are all one-and-the-same.) And my guess is that he's a PRIEST, not a cop. An angry, fire-and-brimstone Bible-thumper. At the very least, a survivalist-conspiracy theorist. Handle at your own risk IMHO.

No, probably just a crazy person with anger management issues. Anyone see his post about his hatred for his own mother? yeah, I'm sure he's real concerned about what we think...

So Duhh (ironic) let me see if I get this right. In your opinion if some one has a drug/alcohol addiction and they are divorced with the X having primary custody and also in a gay relationship then it's OK if they are beaten, strangled to death, then set on fire to cover the crime? To save time give perhaps you could simply email Barbara separately and identify yourself to her instead of telling her to call someone else who will supposedly know who you are by the stuff you are saying. I would venture to say you remaining unnamed in case some one decides to take you up on that offer not to "mess" with you. One thing I have learned in life is there is ALWAYS someone who can kick yer ass. Apparantly since you find joy in tormenting the sister of a murder victim you remain unnamed due to fear of the certain public shame you would face if your identity were to be revealed. Obviously you find it entertaining to post comments in forums open to public scrutiny. Keep in mind my friend (not) you are not as anonymous as you think you are. You just aren't worth looking up.

also anonymous,

Very Well Said,
Lets talk about those "BEATINGS", mentally yes, but "PHYSICALLY", ALL THE TIME, YES, ALL THE TIME.
Everyone that knows the both of them and there relationship, knows it was just a matter of time before HE KILLED HIM BUT, to set him on FIRE to COVER THE CRIME SCENE?

I myself was an addict and know how hard it is to get yourself cleaned up and get your life back. Peaople will never understand it unless they have been through it or are a family member of the person going through it. It's a scary place to be. So If you haven't been through it don't judge, and for goodness sakes, have some respect for the poor families that have to deal with this tragedy. They deserve it. May God bless them!!

Barbara --

My heart goes out to you.
I loved Bruce - he was one of my vendors with his clinical trial recruitng agency.
I suspected something was "up" as he shared some minor intell off-line with me, but was guarded as we never met me in person.
His passing was tragic he did nothing to deserve that.
The pain of loss: my friend, Monica last year (murdered by stranger), and a recent one to cancer, and another to car accident, now ways heavier on me with the news of Bruce.
Please know he is in my heart and I will always honor him.
His friends here (my peers) are in support too.

I worked as a Recruiter with your brother for many years. He was the brightest and most talented person I have ever worked with in this very demanding field. When I began working with him, he and his wife had just had their third child. At that time, late 90s, he was a married man, a devoted father, a widely respected and successful recruiter and a good friend. His life began to unravel and it has ended tragically. However, I want to remind those who read this blog that for many years he was a productive member of the community and a devoted family man. Addiction, mental health issues and destructive relationships all contributed the loss of this talented individual. He did not deserve this, no one does.
