"Four Year Old Death In Bridgeport"

Getting lots of reports about this but no details. Anyone? Edit: Let me agree with one of the comments, how is this not on the DFW newscasts? Edit: Some posts have been deleted that were from or referred to a commenter who was pretending to be someone else.

True, without being noticed 4 year old boy got into car, rolled over him, tragic. Please pray for this devastated family. David A. Pearson

Please be careful about giving out unsubstantiated accounts and hurtful gossip. Our community has suffered a terrible loss.

These were good, dedicated and loving parents and this is a horribly sad situation.

My heart hurts for this family.

This is Wise county at its sorriest, such a hard time for this family, 10:50 you should be ashamed of yourself, i hated to even comment on such a horrible accident, and here you are spreading your stupid rumors, YOU SUCK. I just hope if anything ever happened to my family you would just keep your comments to yourself

Sure, I'll pray. What should the prayer be? Asked another way, what specifically would I ask God to do in this situation that God was not already doing or planning to do, or had done? Perhaps the most realistic prayer would be "God just do what you do."

Why only criticism of WCM? What about the Index? That "paper" only carries a bunch of right-wing propaganda and religious tripe. If it isn't "happy news" Bridwell will ignore it. Neither paper deserves the word "news" associated with it.

I heard about this on the scanner saturday morning and it sounded like a very horrific sight according to the deputy who responded to the scene.

This is very sad if true - but it amazes me how close we are to DFW area and what doesnt get reported on the news - you can turn on the news and HOUSE FIRE blah blah - how many house fires are in wise county never see that on the news - people are displaced homes lost - wast the apartment fire on the news? I never so it but I could be wrong - how about the ATM's that are smashed and grab never see that - we have horrific motor vehicle accidents where is that - just in the messenger? Of course we have crabs at the courthouse now that was on every news station!

I have heard two different stories of how it happened but HOW really does not matter!! A GREAT family lost their innocent 4 year old son and as a mother I can not imagine what they are having to go through right now.

Anonymous said...

The boy's death is tragic. The family's grief immense. Responsibility? I don't know. But it boggles me how folks ask for God's help while attributing all good things to Him and all bad events to someone else.

Was it their Hummer that ran over him? How could he jump out the Hummers window? Kind of a far way to the ground don't you think? Funny thing is that I never heard any emergency vehicles yesterday morning. Weird, I always hear them when they come by.

How is this tragedy anyone's business other than the people immediately involved? If you learned of this tragedy via the media/The Blog/scanner then it really is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. If this tragedy was any of your business the people for whom this is a direct tragedy would PERSONALLY contact you. If you want to offer prayers...back away from your computer and get to praying and stop being a pompous hypocrite by announcing your offering of prayers.

You people getting your knickers in a twist over the comments and allowing your heart strings to be, TRULY, strummed need to get your own lives.

If any of you are interested, I had an AWESOME day, today, golfing in the cool drizzle. Perhaps, my having a life explains my not needing to interject myself into every tragedy that comes along.

So I ask again who was the real reporter at the WCM?

This tragedy is everyone's business. I do not know the family, but as a parent it makes me realize how precious life is to all of us and how quickly a life can be taken. When people offer their prayers to the family, that is what we do in small towns/counties (if you grew up around here you would know that). My Dad just passed away a little over a month ago and when people say they are praying for me and my family then that makes me feel better because maybe they are asking God to help us heal and deal with the grief. I am not being a pompous hypocrite for offering my prayers for the healing process for this family. I do not have to back away from my computer. I am comfortable enough in my belief in God to be able to pray ANYWHERE! That means I can even pray sitting here at my computer.
I am glad you had an awesome day playing golf, but obviously you have to "interject" yourself into every tragedy to spout your opinion.

Shut up Mznoheart !!!

Judy said...

MZchief, I have always agreed with your comments on various subjects, but this one?... I have to ask you, Do you not have a heart?
Yep, I thought so.

mzchief said...

To anonymous 4:15...
If it took this tragedy for you to "realize how precious life is to all of us and how quickly a life can be taken" then you are not very bright and are/have been a piss poor parent as well as being a callous sociopath for believing that the tragic death of a child is to be summed up as a lesson/warning to the unaware and ignorant. As for offering prayers to/for someone, mentioning you are doing so, on a blog is pointless if it is your purpose to bring comfort to the grieving members of the family.

Oh, I have lived for 20+ years in Wise County so I really do not need someone like you to inform me of how it is done in a "small town." I have seen the rabid hoard of gossip mongers within Wise County feed on the sorrow and the misfortunes of each other for those 20+ years.

Mentioning the callous behaviour of your ilk, regarding the aforementioned tragedy, is not interjecting myself in the tragedy, you pompous hypocrite.

Anonymous said...

Then what are YOU doing on here Mzchief? Just HOW is your interjection into this POSTED BIT OF NEWS any different than any other on here. Why don't YOU stay the hell off here!?

mzchief said...

To Judy...
Exactly, what about my comment do you disagree? Do you disagree with my statement that the tragedy is not the business of random members of the public to use as grist for the gossip/rumour mill? Do you disagree with my statement that people need to just pray rather than advertise their supposed piety by declaring they are offering prayers? Do you disagree with me that people need to stop allowing the comments, made by random people, on The Blog to impact their lives and go out and live their own lives?

Do you honestly believe the tragic death of the child, TRULY, impacted any of the people proclaiming their sorrow and compassion? Trust me, EVERYONE not directly associated with the deceased child will carry on with their life as though NOTHING happened. People who TRULY pray for the deceased/unfortunate already pray for those people so adding the child to the list of their prayers does not alter their day. If the death of this child made a single parent more tightly hug or be more careful of their own child then those actions only proves that the person was a piss poor parent to begin with and further diminishes the tragedy by making it little more than an abject lesson.

Thank you, 6:42!!!! As I read her post, I had the same thoughts! I could go on, but a simple thank you will suffice. I sure hope the family does not know KS, since her empathy is nonexsistent and that they won't read her hurtful words here!

Mzcrap, I still agree with a post I saw on a blog last week. YOU ARE A TARD!

Anonymous said...

Man, Mzchief normally wears me smooth out, but I can't agree with her more. This is none of our business, and if it took THIS to realize that life is precious you really are jsut a huge douche.

And maybe, just maybe, it's not on DFW channels because this is NOT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a trauma that gets everyones attention, and it's different, so it becomes a sick, twisted form of entertainment for all these other douches that just HAVE to know how it happened, and want names.

I'm a peaceful person by nature, but I can't help but wish the same type tragedy on all those that get entertainment from others tragedy...The whole what goes around, comes around thing.

4:15, Just because you justify it by saying "That how we do it in small towns, now we can pray for them..." doesn't make it less "gossipy". Let me guess, your Southern Baptist? They are the worst about taking or giving "prayer requests" so that they can gossip without feeling bad about it. After all, thats, how it's done in small towns, right?

Anonymous said...

Mzchief must have missed her "temperment pills" the last few days. She has truly LOST any kind of logical communication when she really believes what she is "typing" on here is "helpful" to anyone. Actually, if you all have been here for a while, you all know she is a sick puppy!

WHO GIVES A RAT's ASS what your golf game was like, you idiot? YOU are not Christian and so you need to BUTT OUT when Christians come together ANYWHERE to express their comforts and support to fellow Christians who have lost a loved one. Deal with this Mzchief, this little 4 year old boy will dwell now in Heaven with his loving God! Lord knows, you may never get there, but IF you do, you'll be just as pitiful and poor as the rest of us little souls! You'll have no money, no big home, no super golf game to "show" for yourself, but you will be asked how you interjected sympathy to those in need. From your stupid interjections here, I can say you are in deep sh*t!

PEOPLE are hurting ....even the sister of the guilty cop killer....and look at the way you folks are responding. You should be ashamed of yourselves!!

"Perhaps, my having a life explains my not needing to interject myself into every tragedy that comes along."

Mzchief, that's exactly what you just did with your golf post. Truly, most of the idiots on this blog just make me laugh. You, on the other hand, I just want to see go away.

Anonymous said...

Please don't assume when some idiot writes something...gives numerous hints about who they are and then signs their initals that it is ACTUALLY them. I for one think that crosses the line when you try to make it look as if someone else has commented. I believe I would contact an attorney if someone did that to me.
I don't think for a minute that families that have been hurt by the things said on this blog would make comments such as that. In fact, I think when you put the initials you blew your attempt to fool everyone, but you just were not sure everybody would get it were you??????

the wcm does not have a real reporter, thats why we stopped going to their web site for what they call "breaking news". they didnt cover this accident. a person was killed 2 weeks ago and they did not report it and two people where flown in a helicopter near boyd from a bad one and nothing. they are alot like the index, which is bad. thats why im glad we have this blog so that we c an all keep each other informed.

Playing guessing games as to the author of anonymous posts should not be allowed on any blog that is monitored. Posing as someone is unthinkable. A blog worth reading should not allow personal attacks on any identified person.

Any information the public needs to know about the accident can be read in the newspapers when they publish it. Respect of the family means not posting comments on any details.

Ahem...Surely, you do not post comments to be "helpful." I post comments for two reasons, to share my opinions and stir the pot. I get a real giggle out of the fact that my random comments have the ability to rattle your cage.

You make an excellent point with your statement that no one "gives a rat's ass" about my golf game. Which was my point of making the comment. Why should my golf game, which is a private event in my life, be anymore or any less NEWS or your business than is the tragic death of a child? The death of the child is a PERSONAL MATTER and is up to the family and friends of the child to determine who they tell.

You do realize, Christians do not have sole ownership of God, right. To be accurate, Christians adopted the God the Jewish religion introduced to the world. Take a look at the Old Testament of the Christian "Big Book of Myths and Fables" and you will see that it is ripped off from the Jewish religion.

As far as your concern about people "hurting," do you honestly believe your comments are making them feel better? As for people being ashamed of themselves, let us take a look at your comment. Nowhere in your comment did you offer condolences to the family of the deceased child, you proved you are a bigot and told someone to "BUTT OUT" because they are not Christian, you used the Christian religion to proclaim your presumed ethical superiority and attempted to demean someone. After showing your arse for the idiot that you are, you then took it upon yourself to admonish people for what you have judged to be bad behaviour. You are a real piece of work and the person who, if you believe your Christian religion, is in "deep shit."

Telling you people the tragic death of that child is a PERSONAL matter and NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS is not me interjecting myself into the tragedy. My comment was calling to your attention that you and the rest of your ilk are gossip mongering scum.

The post that was "supposedly" Kim was an obvious hoax. As I read it, it was apparent it was someone's attempt to be funny. However, that attempt was in very, very poor taste! I agree with the post that said Kim should hire an attorney! Maybe some of you could realize then that there truly are consequences for your actions!

As for Mzchief - she just admitted that she posts her derogatory, demeaning, and unsympathetic posts to "stir the pot." Why don't we all agree to IGNORE her posts entirely!! We've all heard the expression, "It takes 2 to tango." So, let her leave her meaningless comments and just IGNORE HER! Who's with me on this??

The Messenger reported this morning that this child was from Chico. It said he was transported to the Bridgeport hospital. Is this true?

Since, I always post comments on The Blog using the alias mzchief (which just so happens to be an adulteration of the word mischief) it should be a simple matter, even for a simpleton like you, to ignore my comments.

I have, for years, suggested that people, who do not like my comments, merely ignore my comments. I will look forward to YOU not reading my comments.

I'm not even going to read this shit on here. The parents to a 4 yr old little boy just lost him in an 'accident'. YOu people are horrible for even gossipping to such an accident. They are going thru hell right now. He was not ran over and his parent did not let him fall out of the car. People are pretty low to be talking about this with out facts and even with facts YOU are talking about the death of a 4 yr old baby. May God have mercy on you!!!!

EXCELLENT COMMENT!
Though your grammar was not perfect you message was.

Anonymous said...

I have never agreed with mzchief on anything but....she has made one good point on here. ITS A PERSONAL MATTER - Not something the media or you gossiping idiots needs to cover. As far as the INDEX comment by 12:39 - You couldn't be so wrong. They just back up ALL the facts before putting it on a website or publishing half truths. Just because they don't put the nasty, distasteful details that you get from sychos on this blog doesn't mean they don't cover the news. They cover the small stuff that the WCM won't look twice at. By your comments, it's very obvious that you are just not happy if its good stories good things. How sad to live with that kind of personality - when you can only get your jollies by reading about someone elses pain.

Anonymous said...

I, too, agree with Mzchief on this one. It doesn't matter how, why, when, etc. That is NONE OF OUR BUSINESS. I believe the Bible says, if you pray, do it in private and don't feel it necessary to TALK about it. Just do it and shut up about it!

Dear Wanda,

You stated, "I am appauled at how people will use a tragic situation to point fingers and to spread gossip."

I remember a sad time when I was at the receiving end of some gossip, which influenced your family to make choices that were very hurtful to me and my family. You made no effort to "pray and support", not did you "come together and help" or offer to help me in a dark time of my life.

With your comment, it's obvious you continue to judge, not only the people responding to this blog post, but those you feel sin has condemned to hell. Thank you for showing Wise County that I'm not the only one you judge or condemn.
