The wounded boy is my second cousin, making his dad my cousin. I spent every school day with him last year until his mom got home late at night. I met Ladd twice and was rather frightened by him. Amy was a very nice person, but not the brightest star in the sky. Ladd beat her multiple times and she had two restraining orders against him, why would she get back with him? And the idiot cops that brought my little cousin up to the door where Ladd was standing with a gun on the other side!?!? The whole ordeal has caused my whole family a lot of pain, suffering and sadness. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about my little cousin and feel for him. But I know that he is in the best place he could possibly be with people who love him very very much! Even though such a terrible thing has happened to him at such a young age, he has always had us, he has a huge support group and a lot of love. Someone asked about his dad? He lives in Appleton and is working on a law suit against the police for brining him to the door and putting him in direct danger. Who knows, maybe someday my cousin will take custody of him, but for now the best place for him is with his grandma (my aunt). It's been rough, but my family is working together to pull through.

Cousin, and the family of Ladd, my condolences go out to all of you. Cousin, I am glad that the father is looking into seeking a lawsuit against this poor excuse of a police department. I am originally from Bessemer, and I concur that they're a bunch of idiots. The first thing I felt when reading this article was horror and disgust at the fact that they would put a child in harm's way. There is no excuse for it, especially since they knew Ladd had a turbulent history with Amy; did they not even have an inklng that something bad could happen? Sickening. I hope if the father chooses to pursue this matter, it turns out favorably for him and his son. These cops spend so much time breaking up piddly crimes, impregnating their underage girlfriends, and getting dressed up in uniforms on their days off to get freebies from Dairy Queen that they don't know what to do when real crime and/or danger bites them in their asses. Good luck, and again, my sympathies are with all involved in this!

sad
a friend always wrote:
i knew Ladd before he left for Colorado and i talked to him pretty much everyday while he was away working. The Ladd i knew was a sweetheart, someone i could talk to about anything.He helped me through alot of hard times and I wish I could have done the same for him. When he came back he was not the same person. He was into things he shouldn't of been doing and there was no reaching out to him. It made me really sad to see him that way.
I know it's not an excuse, and my heart goes out to Amy and her son.. and his too.
i pray for them everyday.
I will always remember the good things about Ladd. I miss him with all my heart.

Maybe next time the police could let the guy loose on the town first. That Bessemer needs some house cleaning of its residents.

Jeronimo - how can you say that?

I'm sure that the same could be said, by another social misfit such as yourself, about San Jose.
I think that another poster from my area is correct - you are really DEE DEE DEE, ha ha ha , Big Boy - and most likely other "names" as well. Why do you hate Northern WI and MI so much? Do you really hate all people in these areas?
Mental illness is real; drugs exacerbate the problem - however - many folks drink, for instance, to simply medicate themselves for depression. Without access to decent health care, many of our unemployed and working poor turn to the closest thing to relief that they can find; they find it sometimes in a liquor store.
Have some compassion.

How am I loser? I own property both here and in northern WI and the U.P. I own two houses and a four family purely as an investment. I work as a consultant and have a six figure income. Does McDonald's pay you as well? Will you ever move out of your mother's home and make any kind of a life for yourself?

Answer the questions:
1) Where do you work and what is your profession/trade?
2) What do you have against the North Country in general?
