|Bee Bee Gun? Bee Sting at the firing range.|
BREAKING NEWS: BEE STING CHARGED, FIANCEE GIVES HEROES IN THE NIGHT INTERVIEW, PLOT THICKENS
Charges have now been reported in the arrest of Bee Sting (see previous entry). The Flint Journal's website reports:
"(Bee Sting), age 36, of Sterling Heights, was arraigned by Genesee District Judge Larry J. Stecco on Friday for assault with a dangerous weapon and wearing body armor during a commission of a violent crime."
Earlier this evening I received an e-mail from Bee Sting's fiancee. I offered her to give a statement about what was going on and what follows is the impromptu interview that took place.
Tea Krulos: Anything you'd like to say, I'll repost.
Thank you. I still haven't gotten to talk to (Bee Sting). They have him in the main holding area where he can't get visitors or phone calls. Right now all I have is anger for the other members of the RLSH, the ones that have jumped to conclusions without knowing (Bee Sting's) side.
TK: Can you tell me about the last time you saw him? What was going on, what did he say?
It was Wednesday night. He didn't tell me he was going on patrol...he knew it made me worry. The next thing I know someone is trying to call me from jail Thursday morning...a cell phone, so I couldn't accept. But I can tell you I know (Bee Sting) and he NEVER would have pointed a gun at an unarmed man unless he feared for his life or someone else's. I wish the jail would let me talk to him.
TK: So you're saying this story doesn't fit his character? You don't see him doing something like that?
Absolutely not. And I can also tell you that the owner of the mobile home park was paying him and the other guys $10 a night to patrol, $10 each, to cover their gas.
TK: Really? Because in the article I read, he distances himself from Bee Sting and the group.
He was, according to the article. That was a lie, though. (Bee Sting) had just told me the previous weekend about how the guy wanted them to patrol...and was more than willing to pay for it, even though they told him they didn't need to.
TK: What did you think of him bringing a shot gun on patrol? Did you know? Did that concern you?
I knew that he had one, and frankly I thought it was a good idea to have just in case a situation got really bad.
TK: So you've seen some of the negative reaction online from RLSH and others-- what message do you have for them?
All I want them to know is that if the tables were turned...if it were any of them sitting where he is right now, he would not be rushing to judgement. He wouldn't be trying to "boot them" from the Michigan Protectors. He would wait to hear their side, he'd get all the facts. They way they are turning on him like a pack of rabid dogs is just sick.
There was many a time I questioned the whole RLSH thing, when I questioned the real purpose of the Michigan Protectors. He never failed to stand up to me, to stand on behalf of every one of them. It's sad to see that they can't lend him the same courtesy, even when he isn't in a position to defend himself.
