Well I am annoying at times and Im sure to some by the likes of you ignorant. If it makes you feel better you can think that of me. But as I have said else where you hate what you cant understand. Perhaps a white coat and a padded room may help you. Come up with something meaningful and then we can have an honest discussion. But if you cant youll be a dog chasing his tail.

Once again IGNORANT! "You hate what you can't understand" Where did you come up with that? Kate you belong in jail with Olsen's Guilty ass. Has he ever said he was sorry to the residents of peaceful valley? I thought he was such a nice person.

You dont know him or his family and you never will get that chance.

What does he need to apologize for. No one got hurt

If I demanded an apology for everytime the cops have been to my neighborhood and they had to draw, Id be a rich person.

What you need to do is turn yourself in for being an idiot and take your medicine.

Yeah Pete must really be a great guy, going out and gettin wasted,when he should be home with his family. It must be a great life at home always needing to escape with such alcohol issues. There is a big difference with a couple drinks and getting your ass plastered to run numbers between .25 and .40. Its a wonder he doesnt have liver issues with all thaT alcohol abuse. Still trying to blame other people for his problems. Never really looking inward. He will be in this situation again only with someone else, if he doesnt get ahold of himself and grow up.

The problen Shonto had and still has is he ran into someone this time that could confront his ass. Never expecting to get caught and he did. Now he has the goll to try and manipulate the system into feeling sorry for him, when he was the one who started the whole thing. Give me a break, I dont feel sorry for him at all.

I think it was Olsen who had the 16 year issue not to mention that he is broke. And kept dodging his court appearences to pay the debt collectors. How did the so called "meanest guy in the world" describe it? Oh yeah a deterioration of job performance.

Ok jurors check out this credibility. Olsen Lies to his family about being gay. Olsen drinks and drives to Dempsy's bar while having a loaded gun enters the bar. Against policy and the law.

Why was his friend's seatback still down after his so call high speed chase after his vehicle? It was a lie. His friend also said that Pete was wearing a black jogging suit with a big white stripe going down the sleeves and across the back and he was also wearing a hat backwards. Pete was on camera at the Davenport clearly NOT wearing a hat and had no stripes and was wearing blue jeans.
Lets see, there was no fingerprints and no DNA inside of the truck. Also, they did tests of fibers off Pete's coat that didn't match to fibers tested on the truck seat AND dog hair that was found on the seat and Pete's coat and they did not match up. Now thats CSI physical facts that don't match up to Olsen's lies. How about moving a so called stolen vehicle from the crime scene. If it was stolen why move it 16 year veteran cop? And don't say because you are gay. Main drives the so called stolen vehicle the wrong way on a oneway and gets pulled over.

Ok, some how Pete was shot in the back of the head while he was facing Olsen. Explain that one. Here's another one from Olsen. Pete supposedly turned on Olsen again, after already been shot in the head, and says thats why he fired his weapon again. Now, Pete was interviewed in the ER room an hour or so after being chased, shot in the head, injected with highly potent pain killer, intoxicated, bullet pulled from the head, in post dramatic stress, blood loss, stitched up, had a massive concussion and was bleeding on the brain. Now tell me what you could remember exactly what you did hours before. Thats the only time Pete's story ever changed. On the other hand Olsen had to be told by the detectives where Pete was standing when he shot him and that was days later when he gave his statement. When Pete went on the hillside with detectives his account of the events matched perfectly with the physical facts, hence the blood trail. Olsen said he was 90 to 95 percent sure he never shot towards any houses. Low and behold days later after he made that statement there was a bullet found in the same house where Pete left his blody hand prints banging to get help.
There's more, Olsen never calls for backup. He makes calls to his friend Rene Main, an attorney friend and the police guild. Before that he walks right by one of his fellow officers without even acknowledging himself and he was suppose to be so scared. What about the "Dam" statement he made. Does this sound like a credible witness? All I can say is were you guys smoking crack?????
