When the policed arrest the person and/or persons who murdered Mr. Paul Tinsley I would like to say this to them: I hope and pray that I am on the jury when it goes to trial because I will be voting in favor of the death penalty. Under no circumstances will I let u get by with a prison sentence. I wish we were living back in the day when u had judges like Judge Parker from Fort Smith who sentenced the worst criminals to hang by the neck until dead. And the sentence was normally carried out within 30 days! No getting to live for 20 years until the sentence was carried out like it is today. Our criminal justice sytem is all for the criminals and not for the victims at all. Lawyers get paid big bucks to keep these sorry pieces of shit alive. Maybe they wouldn't be so quick to defend them if it was one of their family members who were murdered...
What if the judicial system was like it was back then and then after you murdered someone as a "criminal sentence" you found evidence that proved they were innocent all along??

My prayer is this: The police do a thorough investigation and find the right person. Not go on rumors or a frenzy to make someone - anyone- pay for this.

In a murder investigation there is more to just oh look what we found lets go get them. You first have to make sure you have covered all areas and aspects. Too many times people are being let go due to shoddy and rushed police work ( casey anthony ring any bells?)

Let's all just chill for a moment and let the police do their job so that when they arrest someone they will have all their ducks in a row.

NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) Newport Police continue to investigate the murder of Paul Tinsley.

According to Newport Police Chief Michael Scudder, his investigators are looking into a possible robbery motive. Chief Scudder couldn't release any more details about the case, but did tell Region 8 News they have several people of interest in the case.

On Saturday Jackson County Prosecutor Henry Boyce told Region 8 News that he has been working with Newport police to work the case. Boyce also said that Arkansas State Police have been requested to assist in the investigation.

Many questions remain unanswered after longtime resident Paul Tinsley was murdered in broad daylight Tuesday January 3.

I will rephrase my previous post: If I am on the jury and the person and/or persons are found guilty then I will be voting for the death penalty! I stress the word "guilty". And I never said in my post to arrest someone on rumors or hurry up and arrest someone in a frenzy. I am talking about if they are found guilty in a court of law and I am on the jury I will vote for the death penalty and encourage everyone on the jury to do the same. I am quite confident that the Newport PD and the Arkansas State Police will make a solid arrest with substantial evidence when they do find the person and/or persons who committed this awful crime. I hope a large reward is offered soon. Money will get people to talking. Maybe that is what someone that knows something is waiting on...Who knows but I just hope and pray that they are caught real soon...

My fiance and I bought a jet-ski from Mr. Tinsley a few months ago.We live in Mountain Home.He seemed to be a very nice man who absolutely adored his grandkids.We would just like to say our thoughts and prayers are with those grandchildren and the rest of the family.We pray the police will find the S.O.B who did this.He was a very kind man and I'm sure very loved by his family and friends.Justice in this case would definitely be best served COLD.

Not everyone found guilty by a "jury of their peers" ( I actually find that phrase atrocious) is actually guilty. There are some cases that DNA has proven innocent. What if it were someone related to you would you feel the same then? What if it was your child but you knew in your heart that they were innocent? Yet, circumstantial evidence and false statements were presented in court and the jury found them guilty?

I sincerely hope that whomever is arrested for this gets a lawyer with the good sense to call for a change of venue. It is quite clear there would not be an impartial jury. Unfortunately, when a person is arrested the townfolk immediately think they must be guilty.

Also for the family, friends, neighbors, acquaintances etc of the deceased, I do pray for answers for you all. I hope it does not take as long as the recent murder of my friend -- James Logan Morgan.

So sad that he did not have the town rallying behind his murder.

I guess your one of those bleeding heart liberals who is against the death penalty huh? I say if the person and/or persons are found guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt then they should get the death penalty and I hope the sentence is carried out swiftly and not let them be incarcerated for 20 years at taxpayers expense. That is my opinion and I feel like alot of other people feel the same way as I do....Sorry that your opinion is in the minority...

I don't see what is so sad about a used car salesman/repo man getting shot. Not to say shooting him was a good thing. The shooter should go to jail but this just doesn't really make me sad. Please I would like to know what Mr. Tinsley did that was so nice.

have you ever lost a family member or friend? by your post I would guess not. when you do,you will understand that to lose some one you love is a sad, sad thing. You might not be sad about someone you do not know but I can quarantee that if you live very long(and if you are human) you will lose some one and feel very differently. Mr. tinsley was only a used car salesman to you but he was a family member and a freind to many that do mourn his passing.

read the news, be informed. there are many ppl who were released from death row because they were innocent. the thin red line is a great read and also true. I don't think that we should abolish the death penalty but i would hate to see an innocnet man put to death for a crime that he didn't commit. What is your definition of "beyond a shadow of a doubt"? dna testing has released many ppl who were found quilty "beyond a shadow of a doubt".

All kinds of people on this forum say they want the guy that did this dead. Well if he was hung by the neck no one would feel bad for him or his kids or grand kids. Mr.Tinsely was a repo man and i just can't bring myself to feel bad when bad things happen to the repo man.

I know you are probably just trying to stir people up, but it has to be said, you seriously need help if that is how you truly feel. Most humans have empathy and compassion for one another, Even animals have been known to show these characteristics. The tiny few who seem to miss this link to others are usually soulless and truly dangerous people capable of anything with no remorse. I pray for your sake your just some warpped individual who gets his rocks off trying to instigate an argument even at the cost of others heartbreak. Mr. Tinsley wasn't a "repo man", that was his job along with putting family's that could not get assistance elsewhere into a vehicle. A job ( something you probably know nothing about) does not define who we are; he was also a son, father, grandfather, friend, and fellow human being. Anytime a life is lost it is a sad day. I didn't even know him, the ones being accused in the public eye without proof, the police who have the pressure if finding out the TRUTH, and all of their families.

So ur dumbass is saying it was ok for whoever to kill this man because of what he had been doing for years? If low life ass people would pay their bills then they would have no clue what a repo man was.
thats right

Well this is to you "thought" you need to get your head out of your ass and be a human being for a second! It doesn't matter why he was killed. The fact is... He was murdered! Someone came into his office and took his life from him! And that my friend is a crime! He was shot and killed!!! Who cares that the junkies didn't pay their bills. Even if he'd payed his bills he'd still have an excuse for it! People like you make the world worse than it is! I hate people like you! Just sayin.

I never said it was ok I just said i don't feel bad. I also won't feel bad for the guy the guy that killed him (when and if they get him).
I am not try to stir stuff up. I want to know if Mr. Tinsely (the nice repo man) was worth being called a nice guy. What did he do that was so nice. How long did he wait before he took this persons car. How much did they pay before he took it. Could he have cut him a deal. Did it mess up everything for the guy that shot Mr. Tinsely.

And you say i want to stir stuff up yet I get called a jobless dumbass. I have said nothing insulting here just how I feel. Sorry I don't respect the repo man.

The answer to your question is YES! He helped a lot of people, he donated vans to the drug rehab places, he helped many people get a car that could not get financed else where. He gave to charities and donated money for the hungry. He was not a repo man he was a car salesman. And I'm sure he gave that guy 2 or more months to make a payment of some kind. Mr. Tinsley was a very understanding guy and would work with you as long as you communicated with him. He was just a wonderful person with a big heart and trusted to easily.

And I don't respect anyone who does not make their car payment. You see, Mr. Tinsley put up HIS money to buy the car. You PAY back his money to DRIVE and eventually OWN the car. He only repo-ed the cars when people did not PAY their DEBT. Sorry, car dealers do not owe you anything. You want a car? Do like the rest of us and get a job and pay your debt.

As for what Mr. Tinsely did in his life was show compassion to those who could not get a car anywhere else. He showed support tot he servicemen in the area.

He was married to the same woman for over 50 years . She loved him. His kids and grandkids loved him.
