Dear "The meeting sucked",
Interestingly, there was one elected official and one self-appointed leader of a committee involved with the disposition of the Braves money, who accused me of lying during the meeting the other night, behind my back, but unknowingly in front of my wife and an attorney.
Thankfully, the attorney corrected the two with facts regarding my statements, and my wife was more swayed by the dozens of people who supported my efforts to make our neighborhoods safer than by whimpering gossipers.
There were also some folks at the meeting who don't like our Constitution and who I understand took umbrage to my comments regarding our 2nd amendment right to protect ourselves.
But I know that you are one of the two I mention first above, and I'm also sure I know which one. I know that one of you didn't like the truths I stated about the Juvenile Justice Reform act, and the other is increasingly squirming in the spotlight of all the people who live in and around Turner Field who want to know how the $400K of Braves money is being used and why the hell some of that money can't be used to increase police patrols so that college students don't continue to be shot between the eyes leaving Turner Field.
I am a man, and I say things publicly, and I'm not hiding behind an anonymous post. I'm also respectful enough to not have mentioned either of your names publicly or speak to the press about what you've said and done, and I had hoped we could keep things civil and work together.
But if you keep spreading lies about me publicly, and if you ever say lies about me to my wife behind my back, the gloves are coming off.
EAV President Kevin Spigener's heartfelt plea was lost in the TV news sensationalism that focused on one very small episode in the bigger picture of the meeting. Kevin summed it up for all of us: all we want is to be able to walk our dogs, to work in our flower gardens, for our wives and children to be able to play in the park, without being shot in the face and dying.
It's too bad that people like you, The Meeting Sucked, care more about your own personal interests than your neighbor's safety and right to live freely and pursue happiness. That one's in the top ten, by the way.
Whenever you feel like coming out from the crack under the cabinet where you're hiding, The Meeting Sucked, and want to debate me publicly about any of my comments Wednesday night or anything else, I'll turn the lights off for a minute so you won't be afraid, and you can come out and we'll have us a nice conversation. Is that cool? You know how to find me, I don' hide: firstname.lastname@example.org
