A couple of days ago, I wrote about a author from West Virginia who was writing about kindness and was shot in a drive by shooting.
Well, not so fast as the buckaroo. It turns out the author on kndness wasn't that kind.
From the Havre Daily News: Authorities say a West Virginia man who claimed to be a victim of a
drive-by shooting along Highway 2 near Glasgow has confessed to shooting
Valley County Undersheriff Vernon Buerkle says 39-year-old Ray Dolin of Julian, W. Va., acknowledgement Thursday night.
No charges were immediately filed against Dolin. The case remains under investigation and Buerkle says charges are possible.
Dolin claimed he was hitchhiking along U.S. Highway 2 west of Glasgow
when the driver of a maroon pickup pulled over and shot him in the arm.
Authorities later arrested a 52-year-old man and charged him felony
assault. The charge against Lloyd Christopher Danielson III was dropped
Dolin said in an earlier interview he was traveling across the state working on a memoir called "Kindness in America." http://www.havredailynews.com/cms/news/authoritiessayglasgowhitchhikershothimself.html
So,, this a-hole makes up a story about someone shooting himself, ends up getting a guy thrown in jail for a couple of days and then finally comes clean.
Maybe this a-hole ought to change the name of his book from "Kindness in America" to "I am a Unkind Asshole".
And if they can find this jerk, they should throw the book at him and show him the kindness of the jail staff and the inmates.
