this was clearly a horrible horrible accident. Tina loves her grandkids with all her heart and to try and make this a criminal act is shameful on the part of Joe Shaffer. This woman will have this memory to live with for the remainder of her life. She loves her grandkids she would never do anything to subject them to danger. She is a widow who has been through enough grief in the past two years with the loss of her loving husband and now this horrible accident. Instead of judging this woman, should Mr. Shaffer not use the state of West Va. money for better use like prosecuting drug pushers, people who murdered someone and child molestors. May God ease your pain and know that your grandson is in heaven with his grandfather. Tina in time the pain will lessen and life goes on - your family and friends know that this was an accident - they know you live for those kids. May God comfort you and your son and his wife with the passing of this child.

This is a terrible thing to have happened. I also agree with Texas. Pointing fingers won't make things any better. God forgives us all as we all should to especially when things are accidents. Also If there are people snooping around and acting strange in your neighborhood you may make the same mistake so put the shoe on the other foot. I feel sorry for everyone in this situation and am keeping you all in our thoughts. People are afraid anymore and with good cause people are stealing and into drugs and we don't have enough law enforcement to protect everyone so maybe everyone should blame the pieces of crap that are doing these kinds of things instead of people trying to protect themselves. Maybe neighbor hood watches should be considered so there may be less things to worry about. A lone lady has a right to try to defend herself if she feels unsafe and no one else is there to help as you would your family. It was an accident pure and simple. God Bless

Maybe...you could read the article and try and comprehend what it says.
