In response to your comments:
msvet: Wes' parents would not be ashamed of him because, as astute people, they would have the sense to recognize that he is merely collateral damage in a war of politics. You may be able to come to the same conclusion if you would avail yourself of the facts by reading Legal Schnauzer on line -- his series on Mississippi Churning will explain the big picture quite clearly to you. Roger Shuler is an investigative journalist and has made an extensive investigation of the Minor, Whitfield, Teel case. Scott Horton, a law professor who writes for Harper's Magazine, has done the same thing and can be read at Harpers.org. Please read the facts before you opine.
To the person who asked for Ryan's address, here goes:
Ryan Teel # 08230043
USP Big Sandy
P. O. Box 2068
Inez, KY 41224
Now let me correct something I wrote earlier. Apparently they don't allow you to send stamps and envelopes to the inmates. My bad. Thanks to an alert reader, we now know not to do that. Thank you, Anonymous, for your helpful input.
And to Anonymous, (presumably a different one), Mrs. Teel is not a crazy loon. God knows most of the rest of us would be babbling idiots drooling all over ourselves if we had endured the enormous stress she has borne for the past couple of years, especially while coping with an incurable disease that is directly exacerbated by stress. Despite that, Mrs. Teel has remained gracious, faithful to her family and her Lord, and somehow she has even kept her sense of humor. Crazy loons are those who speak without knowing the truth, and that well describes the aforementioned Anonymous much better than it describes Mrs. Teel. Now if you want to pick on someone, pick on someone who actually deserves it.
And now on to Mr. William E. Cameron: I salute your courage in posting your name with your letter. Obviously, I cannot speak for Wes, and I know nothing whatsoever about the circumstances of your custody case. But one thing I can address is the bitterness that you have harbored for so long. Most of us can understand your anguish at having lost custody of your daughter despite the efforts of a series of exceptionally fine lawyers such as Bobby Koon, Fred Lusk, and Ann Clark Lazarra. However, hitting a man when he is down is rarely a sign of integrity and character. You may want to read your own quote of Galatians 6:7 "A man reaps what he sows." Wishing two or three more heart attacks on a person along with additional pain may just come back home to roost. That would not help you or your daughter. Karma, like the law, seems to have a long arm.
And to the commenter who signed in as Cono: We don't need to vote for Wes for God because in the three Gulf Coast counties, God is running unopposed.
Just for the record, in the last election for District Attorney, in order to have a more palatable candidate than Carana or Tom Paine, some people wrote in Osama Bin Laudin.
I've tried to respond to all of your comments. Please, all of you Anonymice, at least give yourselves initials or numbers or some way to differentiate among yourselves.
Thank you for reading the blog, and thank you for responding.
