Ok no offence to anyone, but some of you can be some real jerks sometimes. I know this should be left up to the authorities, and I know it should not be hashed out on the message bored. I simply asked for some sort of substantial information on what happened. I heard he got into some trouble and heard all sorts of crazy things that I knew couldn’t all be true (as it wasn’t). I was worried about a fellow classmate. I grew up with Ryan. From 5th grade to 8th, it was always Ryan, Billy Zapar, Chris Mortimer (motor mouth) and me running around the playgrounds. Everything they did I did as well. I was that little girl who didn’t want girlfriends just my 3 guys who let me and helped me do everything they enjoyed to do. We had birthday parties together, and a whole bunch of classes. Until my 9th grade year when it wasn’t cool to hang with the tom-girl anymore, had to hang with the pretty girls who did their hair all nice and smiled at the boys. I moved on to my own group of friends as well. We all kind of stopped hanging out on and off again through the years until I moved away for college. Yes, I care about what happens to Ryan. I know a lot of crap he’s done, including to my own personal property. NEVERTHELESS, doesn’t make me care about him any less.
I called up as many friends as I could to ask what was going on and I heard so many things, and “I think” statements that’s not what I needed to hear. I wanted facts not rumors. My parents are going out of town, and as far as I know have already left…I had no one else to turn to to find facts. As I stated in my FIRST post I just wanted to know what was going on because I looked for TWO hours on the internet. Finally frustrated I came to the message board thinking someone would have a helpful link. As Rob did. *thank you Rob* Then I did ask a stupid questions, which often young people like me do. I was being inappropriate and hadn't realized. Nurse Nell brought it to my attention and I did what I could to apologize. I apologized and then stated “I think I have gotten enough information from Rob, I just wanted to make sure what was said to me was substantial. Thanks everyone who put an effort in helping me.” That, at least to me, was the I don’t need to hear anything else, I got the information I needed. I know it’s hard to go through what Ryan’s family is going through. I lost my brother for 3 years because he made some bad choices.
Not to attack, but I agree it should be left for the authorities to sort out. I didn’t ask for what my professors and I refer to as “I think” statements. These are statements which come from personal feelings and ideas. NOT WHAT I WANTED. Just a simple link to the correct information then DROPPED. Yes, I take responsibility for the stupidity of me continuing it, that was my fault. I do believe as well that it is a need to know basis. I don’t need or care to know what day, whose house, what gun, what drug ect… Just found out a friend was in trouble. Heard some information, thought it wasn’t right, and didn’t want to spread more rumors than needed. I never asked for those details or for anything to be hashed out on the message board… THUS THE ENDING OF MY FIRST POST. And with a little patience, I’m sure everyone in the Tomahawk area will get the facts. Meanwhile I’m here, in Eau Claire without that information available to me via Newspaper (local), TV (anything in the Rhinelander/Wausau area), or radio (only getting the Chippewa Valley and the Cities over here.) I don’t need anything to do to wait for the information. I have school 5 days a week, and work 4 days a week. I don’t care to know every detail. What he was charged with, if he’s holding up ok, and that’s about it. Just enough for me to be able to pray for him and his family at night knowing what’s going on. Because you can’t pray for someone if you don’t know what’s happened to him/her. I’m done with my jerk comments now. I’m sorry if I offended anyone, but I did my best to not in the beginning. I wasn’t trying to get people to blab all about the rumors that I am sure are going around. I don’t care about that ‘cause I heard enough of it already. And thank you tinman for standing up for me. You knew where I was coming from and I am very scared for Ryan. I am sure there were better ways of finding out, but I couldn’t come up with any. I tried the resources available to me and couldn’t find anything. But I’m young and don’t know everything so I know they were out there, I just hadn’t thought of looking for them *such as the Oneida sheriffs webpage. Tinman you really do have a big heart!
I don’t want to turn this whole message board into a fight now. I don’t have time to be petty. I know I can get out of line and very sarcastic, and I’m working on not… but it happens to the best of us when someone offends us.
I was hurt by JFlosums post, and yes I cried. But because you believed I was looking for something I had thought I clearly stated I wasn’t wanting to occur. Which means I failed in trying to keep opinions out and just facts given. Cause it is happening, and as much as people try not to talk about it, it won’t go away. The best everyone can do is pray for both families in both situations and hope for what is fair and the best to happen.
Again, thank you to all who tried helping get the information I couldn’t.
