**************************************************
1. With sadness: member's spouse avoided protection, was ultimate
victim
**************************************************

It is with shock and great sadness, we update a report from last week
<http://tinyurl.com/2nq688> about the shooting in Fairfax County
where a man was given bail against the urging of the prosecutor, and
shortly thereafter murdered an elderly woman in a park and then took
over a bus.

The woman was in the VCDL family.

I offer my personal condolences and the condolences on behalf of VCDL.

I hope that by publishing this, maybe other spouses who are also
afraid of guns will rethink their position and possibly save their
own lives someday.

A bereaved Roy S. Gillinson M.D., wrote to us, and gave his kind
permission to reprint here, in his hope it might help others:

I am a member of VCDL and several other 2nd Amendment defense
organizations.

The Victim of the Murder in Huntley Meadows Park and wildlife
preserve on October 17 was my 80 yr old wife of 60 years.

She sat reading on a bench and was a frequent visitor to the park and
was well known to the employees and other visitors. The released
violent criminal was apparently attempting to obtain the keys to her
car, presumably to evade his court orders and escape the area. She
was pistol whipped about the head, and then shot through the eye
dying instantly.

She was a sweet natured lady 5' 0",and not physically strong; but
fearful of carrying a weapon or even using a personal alarm device.

I am hoping that this event will bring retribution and remorse to the
so called "Judge(s)" who basically were the root cause of this
tragedy.

Here is a recent article on this horribly tragedy:

Suspect in Killing, Barricade Was Free on Bond

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- A man suspected of killing a woman in the Hybla
Valley area of Fairfax County, then barricading himself on a bus, was
free on bond while awaiting sentencing in another crime.

Kevin C. Kline, 18, of Woodbridge is charged with murdering a woman
whose body was found in Huntley Meadows Park, just off Route 1.
Police haven't described a motive or any relationship between the two.

The Culpeper County State's Attorney's office says Kline was
convicted of malicious wounding earlier this month in a taser attack
on a woman this spring. But he was set free on bond while awaiting
sentencing in that crime.

In Fairfax County, the body of Joan Gillinson, 80, was found just
after 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. Shortly thereafter, Kline, armed with a
gun and blood on his clothes, ran out of the bushes, and onto the
Fairfax Connector Bus, police say.

Once on the bus, he ordered everybody off and then he threatened to
kill himself. The armed standoff with police ended peacefully shortly
after 6:30 p.m. Armed SWAT team members arrested him and took him
into custody.

Police had received a call about a suspicious man riding a bus and
when they drove up to the bus and attempted to pull over the bus.

Police closed off Route 1 in both directions near the Mount Vernon
Plaza shopping center, snarling traffic in the area for several hours.

No one was injured in the incident, police say.

This "kid" sounds like a hard case.
If convicted, I hope he gets sentenced to meet a needle.
But that's too good for him.

I have some suggestions, none of which are appropriate for a family oriented forum.

Nope, can not use leathal injection. They say it is cruel and unusal punishment. I would perfer something that last longer and was not toxic, like starvation.

I agree that the needle is "too kind" for this type of trash. Reminds me of a school teacher I had in high school. It was during the on-again-off-again with Gary Gilmore's death by firing squad in Utah in 1977. The "big controversy" was whether one of more of the members of the 5-man firing squad would have a blank round in their rifle, thus saving each member the emotional trauma of knowing whether he fired one of the fatal rounds.

My teacher said "I could pull the trigger and kill that SOB without blinking an eye." Boy we sure don't have teachers like that anymore!

I'm opposed to the death penalty in the hands of the government, but I won't lose a second of sleep if the murderer manages to get dead by some other means. Even if it hurts like a SOB, takes a good long time and makes a big mess.

My condolences go to the lady's husband and family. This horrible tragedy is something that nobody should have to go through.

This touches me because my own mother is 85 and it really just gets me furious to realize all of the life experiences they've gone through can be wiped away by some selfish, amoral, anti-social piece of dog puke. The victim was 80 and probably thought she had a few more years left to enjoy with her great-grandchildren. Robbing her and them of those experiences is worse than any monetary loss.

This punk kid is on a short list to be a poster-boy for bringing back the firing squad. Murders of elderly people and children are two things we cannot tolerate as a society. Remember the '96 conviction of Robert Harris for killing Polly Klass -- and his antics at sentencing? In the aftermath, several friends said if a firing squad was used, they'd volunteer and bring their own rifles and ammo.

Firing squad? a tree and a rope is more than adequate.

Don't forget, the death penalty is in the hand of the same government that is also the DOJ BOF and the DMV! If that doesn't make you anti death penalty, I can't help you.

Well put. Personally I am not morally opposed, I am factually and implimentation opposed.

My regrets go out to the husband and their families.

Needles? Firing squad? I vote for a chain around the ankle and a 5mph drag down any public highway. He'll probably last a mile or two, to give him time to reflect on what a sorry POS he'd been.

WOW, I'm surprised he didn't "resist arrest" and threaten the arresing officer with a deadly weapon. He could have save the tax payers a lot of money.
