Meade is a known representative of a life philosophy which is being perfectly reflected in his current, subhuman attitude. Why the surprise?

My heart goes out to all parties involved.

I read the story Friday morning and had the same gut-check as snoqueen. We all knew whose shift this was. When the confirmation came that Steve was involved with the shots being fired my heart sank.

I didn't know Paul Heenan other than having shared acquaintances. By all accounts he was a wonderful guy. I can’t say much more than the loss his friends and family are dealing with is something I wouldn’t wish on anyone. No one deserves to endure this kind of heartbreak and its little consolation but my thoughts and prayers are with them.

FYI this is the Local Music Forum not the Suicide by Cop Forum

Please respect the dead.

Instead of mindless speculation before the facts are out it would be constructive if those who have links to projects that they worked with Paulie on would post those links on this thread.

Okay, well, then may I suggest not titling your posts with "Killed by Madison Police" before all the facts are known. The Madison Police killed Paul Heenan? Are you sure that is accurate?

Please respect the search for truth.

What a horrible situation. I feel so bad for everyone involved, and for the victim's family especially. And yeah, for Steve too. I'm sure he is in a mess right now.

And yeah, it is long past time to put Meade on ignore.

On the contrary, Larry, Jason is hardly self-appointed. And Kenneth has been quite consistent, asking others to show some decorum and respect even when you're involved.

The man was shot to death by a Madison Police Officer. That is what is called 'an established fact.'

I respect the search for the truth. Which is why I feel comfortable pointing out, yet again, the simple truth that you are the dumbest motherfucker on the planet.

Then why not title the post "Monovox guitarist, Paul Heenan, Killed by a Madison Police Officer" or "...Killed in Officer-involved Shooting"?

And if you don't want commenters asking questions that you may deem to be in bad taste, why not title it something like, "Paul Heenan: In Memoriam"? Instead, oranger's original post begins with a link to a news report which includes questions and speculation - something oranger said "seems appropriate to post here".

Again, I'm heartened by what I take to be people's abhorrence for -albeit unintended - the idea of self-murder, aka, suicide.

Because both of those exceed the character limit for topic titles. Let us hope that this will be sufficient reason to end this particular vein of threadjack.

Why not just take the personal responsibility to not be a dick, no matter what the title says?

I'm just sick about the whole thing. My thoughts are with everyone involved.

The "threadjack" here is by delicate hothouse flowers of forons, easily offended by thoughts, questions, speech and ideas which might prick their safe ideological cocoon of self-righteousness, who can't seem to lay off attacking me for posing one simple troubling question that is completely on topic: Is it not even possible that Paul Heenan in fact wanted to be killed?

In situations where police are called in (e.g., a home intrusion, apparent burglary, home invasion, rape, etc.), what causes the intruder, burglar, rapist to not comply with the police officer's orders? Impairment? Insanity? Intoxication? Death wish?

So you're saying you are the victim here? I'm starting to think that call for you to seek psychological help should be treated as urgent.

If by question that was completely on topic you mean cruel gossip, then you have accurately characterized the post.
