If you see my dog unleashed, be forewarned that you are subject to being loved to death....
It is hard to believe that two years has passed since this “Felony Attack” were we almost lost a pastor to all in Miramar Beach. Everyone regardless of their religious denomination as a friend knows Father Tom Guido in the community.
This case looks like it has been swept under the rug based on the lack of action by the State Attorney's office. Perhaps this case does not have enough merit for their time. What many people are not aware of during the recovery of Father Tom he had some complications due to the blow he received and he almost lost his life. Therefore, a simple attack could have turned into manslaughter, very few people are aware of this situation but many of his close friends are and we are not going to sit still and have this swept under the rug. The attacker has a history of anger and multiple misdemeanors to include domestic violence. Torey Geile Attorney Clay B. Adkinson as expected is trying to say Mr. Geile was defending himself, considering how many witnesses were present with opposite statements you have to wonder why this has not gone to court. Father Tom is concerned that with Mr. Geile past history of domestic violence that same incident could happen again and the outcome may not be the same.
The time has come for the State's Attorney to move forward and let the people make a decision with a jury trial.
Keep this thread moving before someone else is harmed because the State's Attorney failed to take action in a timely manner.
Any theories as to why this is not prosecuted?
The defendant’s attorney is pursuing this case as a misdemeanor rather than a felony. The actions by the defendant definitely is a felony offense. There are enough witnesses to validate this statement. The defendant has a history going back to 1999 on multiple misdemeanors represents a slap on the hands and pay a little money. It does not solve the problem, Fr. Tom is concerned that the defendant is in possession of firearms and with his anger issues he is afraid that one day the will of the art will defendant may use one of these firearms.
The only way that these firearms can be taken away from the defendant is that the case has to be treated as a felony. Once the facts are presented to a jury I personally feel confident that the verdict will be as it should be felony charges.
The defendant knows how to work the program based on his past history it is time for a change and time for the people to stand up and say enough is enough. Keep this thread going so the state attorney will have to be forced to move forward. You will
It appears from accessible court records that jury selection was started on 12/11/2017.
You are correct on the date for a jury but it never happened. The defendant’s attorney is pushing for a misdemeanor and the jury selection was delayed. There is no future date for this action. Another delaying technique so as to buy time this is moving into the next year. The States will Attorney’s office needs to put there foot down and pushed forward.
We need to elect a new State Attorney, unfortunately he ran uncontested.
I saw all the delays and stall tactics being used by the Adkinson law firm as well.
What's the root cause of no one else running for State Attorney? Maybe the area is unattractive to those with a more global and humane view of the world? Maybe its the same reason non tourist business doesn't seek Walton out at least not without a push or connection from Art Miller (is he an attorney by any chance)? Maybe it is that many in our neck of the woods are too busy trying to hang on to a bygone way of life when rules of decency and equity did not apply and only local white men had a fair shake? To all the resistors of change, you may think you're fighting for your rights but your crippling your kids and grandkids by teaching them to hate those people with whom they WILL share the future. Why not embrace a new way of thinking that might actually allow you to have a voice in the changes that are coming on like a freight train?
Folllllow the money...every law enforcement agency, every judge, every lawyer, every school district (look at Eddins son) utility companies (Regional Utilities in our case) developers and even colleges in a tri county area have HUGE financial donors. State Attorney's represent the interests of the State not the states constituents. Prosecuting attorney's are the voice of the people.
Business doesn't seek out Walton County because we don't have the needed infrastructure in Walton County and our elected officials have fought to keep it that way for eons.
As for Art Miller, I've met the man once. I found him to be intelligent, honest, literate and very well spoken. In my opinion he is a very articulate writer who doesn't mince words and an advocate for open, honest government, operated in the Sunshine. For those reasons I don't think he would make a very good attorney given the way our current system is run. I'm sure he would be flattered you asked if he was an attorney though.
As for the rest of your comment...well said.
O not an attorney but a very smart man who came here from Texas when he retired. His wife was a school superendent in Texas. He sees the need for change as we all do but he has guts enough to voice his opinion publicly. Thank God for people like him we need more of these
Exactly what I mean. Not facing change even when we don't like it is like hanging onto a tornado or whirlpool. An ant CANNOT move a rubber tree plant despite its high hopes anymore than I can change the direction of the wind. I feel a big wind comin' on.
@Magee Pushing the prosecutor rather than Eddins might have better results. This really has drug on long enough.
Yes, it is time to keep this pushing on for resolution, this thread is not about business development or anything else. It is a threat design to protect the citizens against domestic violence without recourse. Don’t let this thread die let’s make 2018 the year of prosecution.
This is going to be my New Year’s resolution!
First of all let me lead with saying none of you know what the f725 you're talking about and don't understand the situation with the pastor.
The pastor and the man's wife were walking their dogs.
His dogs approached the wife's dogs which ARE defensive breeds rodesian ridgebacks
The ridgebacks broke free in an attempt to protect the wife from what they thought was a threat.
The PASTOR then intervenes the dogs and TRIPS OVER THEM ONTO HIS WIFE
He comes outside to see a man on top of his wife
So he runs up and punches him.
If you came outside and saw a man you've never seen laying on top of your wife you better f487ing punch them too or you're a real piece of sh1t and a p4ssy
Whooo...that was a doozy of a first post. Most people wait...oh, I don't know...at least two or three posts before they go postal!
You should have seen the one that was deleted.
He's a Priest not a pastor. And all that rage is a sign you have the same psychological tendencies of the hillbilly who attacked him.
Trashy dogs are always owned by trashy humans. It's time for you to grow up.
He's moved on and been forgiving, as you would expect from a Priest, so why don't the rednecks who were at fault do the same?
Father Tom has been peacefully walking his elderly dog daily for years without incident so the real "piece of sh1t and a p4ssy" is the attacker. I know what I'm talking about because I live on the same street as this a-hole and he has (or should I say you have?) been a nasty, confrontational prick since the day he/you moved in.
