no one is the better in this unfortunate situation-poor girl gets shot allegedly "accidentally" and a seriously ill and past abused and mentally ill person gets driven to the edge and basically gets the death penalty for a non death penalty event. Something is missing from this story. Wasn't the dog not even the girl's?? And the time period of the dog bite and the shooting-what happened in between?? all we know of is Brenda's dog getting poisoned? Man where is the heart in this northampton neighborhood?

I AGREE THAT SOMETHING IS MISSING FROM THIS STORY. PEOPLE GET SHOT ALMOST EVERY DAY AND IT'S USUALLY A CUT AND DRY STORY. THIS ONE MAKES NO SENSE. IS IT A TYPICAL NEIGHBORHOOD HARRASSMENT CASE THAT WENT WRONG? I FEEL SORRY FOR BOTH PARTIES INVOLVED. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED. IT WOULD MAKE MORE SENSE IF THE SHOOTING TOOK PLACE IMMED AFTER THE DOG BITE BUT IT DIDN'T. IF SHE'S THAT MENTALLY UNSTABLE AND ON MEDICATION I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT SHE COULD HAVE TAKEN ALL THAT TIME TO MASTERMIND ALL THAT HAPPENED. SHE JUST LOST IT. SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THERE'S ANOTHER PERSON OUT THERE THAT CAUSED THE PROBLEM-WHO IS IT?? AND YES I AGREE, WHERE IS THE HEART IN THAT NORTHAMPTON NEIGHBORHOOD. THERE SEEMS TO BE ALOT OF ANGER THERE AND AN INNOCENT GIRL GOT SHOT IN THE MIDST OF IT ALL. I SURE HOPE WHOEVER IS THE MISSING "THIRD PARTY" IS HAPPY WITH THEMSELVES BECAUSE I AM SURE NO ONE ELSE AROUND THERE IS.

if you don't know the whole story do not make assumptions! there is no missing person - Brenda smith actually did mastermind the whole incident - everyone in the neighborhood feels Brenda smith got exactly what she deserved! there was no harassment except on Brenda's part, her dog was not poisoned, this Brenda made up to justify what she was planning, Brenda actually did plan the whole incident, if you don't know the whole story - do not make assumptions!
