First of all let me correct you, Billy (as we knew him) Hammond was NOT a scum bag. I have known him for many years, he was a friend, a father, a grandfather, someone's son and a mentor to young kids passing through the Arizona State Prison System. Billy was one of the hardest working people I had ever met.
I have my own opinions of what happened on that fateful night and I would lay money on the fact that my friend died protecting someone. I hate the fact that other people besides my friend were hurt in this situation. Something is wrong with the picture, not one person that I have talked with has ever known Billy to carry a gun, he drank very little and did not use drugs. I also know my friend would never intentionally put an innocent person in jeapordy.
I won't judge you for what you think you know of my friend. But know your comments hurt many people deeply. I swallowed hard and tried not to cry because my friend would not have wanted that.
I do, however, beg you to know all of the facts before you judge someone. I respectfully say your opinions about this man are wrong.7 months ago
