    I would like to express my concerns for the Asher family this is a terriable thing to have happened I agree, But my comment is to Kim of Frenchberg. Dont speak for all Vietnam Vets I too am a Vietnam Vet and a cousin to Dickie Mayse. You have not a CLUE of what he and I have gone through we were Kids sent to War and suffer from PTSD when we came home Dickie is a kind and caring person. He has a problem you know nothing of, I only hope and pray for his family and he gets the help he needs. Mike

    This little town is full of corruption, no disrespect to Officer Asher because he is relatively new to the force and may not have been involved in what has happened in the past. I'm not defending Mr. Mays either because what he did was definitely wrong. I believe that something has happened in the past that provoked Mr. Mays to commit this ungodly act.

    And the officer played with his Christian Rock Band the following night. Tell me this guy isn't tough as nails! I'm glad he is doing ok and hopefully they catch the jerks who did this. If they feel they can get away with it once, they'll do it again. Oh and Darlene, the word is "definitely" not "defiantly". Those words have two very different meanings.

    I'm sorry to hear about your husband. It sound's like he's doing OK. But I think they all scream they have mental problem's when they do something this bad. And they ought to have to pay the price for thier action's. Mental or not you had a gun and they are not toy's.

    Glad to know that you are doing good and that you are still able to go about your service to the LORD! He was with you Friday Night and brought you thru! It is an honor to work with you. Keep safe.
