    GA - Mail carrier shot, seriously injured in Snellville, 29 June 2005

    Earl Lazenby had delivered mail for years to the aging brown home with overgrown plants in the yard and a National Rifle Association sticker on the front door. The home's owner was always friendly, sometimes chatting with Lazenby at the grocery store in this Atlanta suburb.

    But what Lazenby didn't know was that William Crutchfield was deep in debt and looking for a way out. Authorities say Crutchfield apparently watched with envy as Olympic bomber Eric Rudolph was headed to prison for life and aspired to the same fate -- allowing him to live off the government while behind bars.

    So he allegedly hatched a twisted plan: Kill a federal employee.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    From January 2006:


    On Thursday, a federal judge sentenced 60-year-old William Crutchfield to life in prison on three charges related to the shooting of his mailman, Earl "Woody" Lazenby...

    As Lazenby was making his rounds, Crutchfield walked down his driveway carrying a .380-caliber pistol and greeted his mail carrier at the curb. He opened fire on Lazenby, then drove to the police station in his Chevrolet Cavalier and told the secretary, ''I just shot the letter carrier.''

    Lazenby, who is 52 years old and has been a mail carrier for 28 years, was hospitalized for more than two weeks before being discharged to continue a lengthy recovery. He suffered wounds including 29 holes in his colon and intestines and shattered bones in his arm.

    So Mr. Crutchfield apparently got his wish.
