What a shame.
He only meant to hurt him not kill him. Hopefully the judge will keep that in mind when handing down the sentence.

Hopefully the judge will see that another man pointed a gun at another person and shot another person. Never let the barrel of your gun cross anything you dont want destroyed, destroyed might be the wrong word but I cant think of the right word to use. The guy obviously does not care about another persons life if he shot him.

killed??   :-D
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Theres nothing magical about working with bees that makes us any less human, as much as we'd like to think so  :roll:.

Yeah...lock him away for ever.
Although this guy must be incredibly stupid...not only to think somehow that you can kill somebody and get away with it, but especially over something with such a low value-to-mass ratio...

Its pretty common to hear of somebody getting killed over their Honey  :-* but not usually over their honey.

Man, THAT was a lousy thing for that guy to do...You really dont think of beekeepers as being this way.
However, years ago, there was a guy at the pigeon club who stabbed another member over the results of a race!...Oh yeh,....At the "3rd Bridge", at Lake Arrowhead,( where I fish), during Crappie runs in winter and spring, People get to yellin and hollerin at each other over whos right it is to tie up to the pillars which hold the bridge up over the water! One day, soon, I bet somebodies gonna shoot somebody  over these pillars!
 I guess theres all kinds of people in all kinds of activities tho...Like Rick said....Keeping bees doesnt make any of us any less human or any more special than anybody else...(Oh,..and YES,......Im one of those people who like to think that beekeeping is a special gift only certain people have! :) )
Killing for honey tho? Sheesh!...Imagine what the little bees would think about this, if they could!

your friend,
john

Hopefully the judge will realize that refuse disguised as human should be disposed of properly.

Ok, I'm late but just saw this...I've watched those sometimes wretched creatures and I know what the little stinging buggers would think about this... "whaddya mean you left the other tanker truck behind?  that honey is free for the taking, its OURS now, and sting anybody who tries to stop you!!!"  Yikes!  I've cleaned out a super had some honey in it after I let them rob it out, and let me tell you its like a street fight with little broken bodies laying all over.  And do you see what they do with their old people, and their drones in the fall????

Kind of poetic justic to the thief and murderer, getting trapped beneath the stolen goods. Yikes. What a world. Poor guy that was shot in his sleep...

Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.
