I agree. It's one of those cases, where you let your anger get the best of you. I hope when i'm driving, I don't let idiot drivers out there get the best of me because one never knows. This is one of the reason I disagreed with making it legal for to have a gun in your car. Too many people get angry and use their weapons and regret doing so after all is said and done.

I hope toxicology was done on Mrs. Meyers. Did she have alcohol or drugs in her system?... Police seem sympathetic and protective of this lying family, so hopefully someone is willing to get to the truth and not cover it up.

1. I hope the person(s) who shot the woman is apprehended.

2. If the woman was "teaching her daughter to drive" (at 11 p.m.), why did the daughter have to "reach over" to blow the horn when they were sideswiped?

3. The mother returned to the road, looking for trouble, and found it.


As usual, emerging reports don't appear to support the initial emotional headlines.

I expect to see this turn up on "Lifetime" some time later this year or next.

What a mess.

No idea where the truth lies, but one detail keeps jumping out at me - the bit about the daughter reaching over and hitting the horn. It is completely counter-intuitive to me that she did so because the other car was either speeding (the latest story) or had side-swiped them. What seems more logical is that she knew the driver or the car.
Based just on that detail, I have a feeling that this was not a single inexplicable incident but rather the culmination of a long-standing dispute.

What a mess.

I won't be a bit surprised if it turns out the son's gun fired the bullet that killed this woman. This story has been sketchy from the outset, and becomes more so with every new/changing detail.

This apparently took place in a residential area. I just don't see the road rage incident as probable. You speed past someone who was driving slow and you're in a rush - they honk at you, maybe flip you the bird. You're already speeding away. You're a big, young guy in your prime. Why would you go stop to start something with a 40-something woman and a teenaged girl? Usually a road rage incident is the result of someone being cut off or because someone is angry because they can't get around another driver.

Once the mother and daughter get back home, the mom goes back out again with her armed son looking for the other driver. To do what? Tell him off at gunpoint? Shoot him? If they were going back out to report the driver for reckless driving, why wouldn't they just call the police from the car when they found him?

NOTHING about this story makes sense or follows logical patterns of behavior.

Looks like the investigation results are in. Meyers got into an altercation with another driver, drove off, left the scene and went home, got her son, who brought along a gun, then went out to look for the other car. They found the car, followed it, and eventually went home. Some time later the other car returned to their house and got into a gunfight with the son.

Kind of changes the whole picture of what the "Headlines" first led everyone to believe. Kind of brings back the memory of an old saying I heard. "Seek, and thou shalt find." If the investigation is accurate, no sympathy here.

I heard the son speak during the vigil and he said he was defending his family and he'd do it again. What he did didn't look like he was defending them.

Maybe it was a drug deal gone badly
