All was peaceful when Mr. Posey and his mother moved into the apartment next door to Mr. Wilson. This was not a bad part of town before Mr. Posey's mother died and left him without a way to pay his rent. The victim and her son were running prostitution out of her house around the corner and Mr. Posey (who has SIX! felony drug convictions) was selling drugs to all comers 24/7. Mr. Wilson tried mightily to interest the police department in protecting what had been a decent neighborhood. He rallied his neighbors to report everything because he was told by the police that would force the landlord to evict the troublemakers. Instead, Posey threatened violence towards the women in his family. The day of the shooting, Posey accosted Mr. Wilson and spat on him, saying "This ends tonight". Numerous witnesses also testified that the occupants of the car Mr. Wilson fired at were shooting at him. Mr. Wilson is a hero who tried to fight a neighborhood menace and has paid dearly for his trouble. He was acquitted by a jury of his peers. The Daily Republic should be ashamed of its coverage! Most of the "facts" reported by this rag were contradicted by testimony, yet no one who reads this paper would ever know that. Anyone who knows the whole story has to suspect corruption because of the persecution Mr. Wilson endured in trying to protect his home and neighborhood. One has to wonder if the Daily Republic is also corrupt, because it is sure going out of its way to avoid honest reporting on this story!

No, but the Internet is forever, and I care about the reputation of this good man.
