Good Afternoon Ladies and Gentlemen and welcome to the First Addition of You Decide. In this case I will be asking for a simple Guilty or Not Guilty vote in the case of Highwayman vs The blog world and FB world. I will lay out all the facts in this case and let you decide if Highwayman is either guilty or not guilty of poor judgement.
Fact: On the morning of 9 June 2012, I received a phone call from my mother telling me that My grandmother had died earlier in the morning. She was 93 and had been sick for quite a while.
Fact: Growing up, my grandmother had a big impact on myself and my brothers. Highway is one of my older brothers. It was always fun going to Grandmothers house for Christmas and holidays. I am willing to bet that all of my siblings have fond memories of big cereals bowls and watching pro wrestling at midnight at grandma’s house.
Fact: Grandma immersed herself in our hobbies growing up. I watched Yankee games with her and she was wildly interested in helping my brother (Slickman) build his baseball card collection. Which was priced some years ago at more than 4,000 dollars.
Fact: My brother Highwayman on the morning following my Grandmothers passing, posted comments about my Grandmother that could be described by most as insulting, inflammatory and lacked a basic decency. All of my grandmother children are still alive and could have viewed the FB post.
Now I ask you if you were a godson or daughter or cousin or uncle how would you view behaviour like that. Highway has had plenty of time to tell his side of the story in the past years, but only came forward with all this nastiness the day after Grandma’s passing. That to me sounds like it was done with malicious intent and its intent was to hurt those that were around grandma…You decide GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY.
