I think it all could of been avoided if they weren't up there breaking the law in the first place. Why fight if it's only over riding a ATV in a prohitbited area. Why didn't they say ok and just go some where else. It's sad that people are fighting over such little things. And as for the guy dying..It was just his time...no getting around that. God says when your time is up...and there is no preventing it once that day comes.

I think that it's "Very" "Rude" to make a comment like that mchl30. Was you there? Did you see anyone breaking the law? And as far as saying, It was just his time, Well that is just totally heartless. Looks to me, like someone just got trigger happy? Like you said when "GOD" says, well remember "GOD" sits high, and looks low. And "GOD" does'nt like ugly.

It doesn't sound like anyone in this thread has dealt with Jackson Whites too much. They call themselves Native Americans, but believe me that's a real stretch. The Iroquois League doesnít even recognize them as truly Native Americans.

These people have been causing trouble for years. Everyone around here knows that you donít go up the mountain. The Jackson Whites have guns and they shoot first and ask questions later.

Umm, maybe you. When you come into any neighborhood, whether in Mahwah or Greenwich, CT, if you are snooping around, people generally think you're up to no good. If you are an honest person, the RM Indians or the derogatory name you gave them), don't have a problem with you. You probably just look funny.

Truer words were never spoken. Think about it, they were at one point Native Americns. They gave that up, though, when they began interbreeding with freed slaves and Dutch settlers. Now they're like 99% of all Americans, mutts.
