To the editor:
Congratulations. All the lamestream media who refused to print anything about Andrew S. Wordes, the Roswell, Ga., man who refused to knuckle under to illegal laws passed against one man to force him to give up his property and his civil rights, is now deceased. They finally broke his spirit and rendered him unable to continue living as a free citizen. Hope all who refused to print or even acknowledge the despicable treatment of an honest man trying to live on his own terms, and having his cause judged as proper by one justice, was subjected to a hearing by another judge more amenable to outside interests, who reversed the first judge's decision. Aren't you all proud of yourselves now?
Channel 2's Mike Petchenik went to Wordes' home on Alpine Drive, where Fulton County marshals were gathered outside for the eviction March 27. Wordes told Petchenik he was scheduled for a court appearance that morning on a traffic citation but feared marshals would repossess his home while he was gone, so he didn't go.
Wordes called Petchenik and asked him to tell the marshals to leave the property because it "wasn't going to be pretty." Then, the home exploded.
"I appreciate everything, brother. I appreciate everything you've done," he told Petchenik before the explosion.
I doubt anyone will print or even acknowledge this email. Just wanted to express my disgust with you all.
