By investigating officer, I assume you are referring to our local Barney or Gomer. Good luck with that. BTW, your spelling & grammar are very impressive. Congrats. You could teach 'shootin' a thing or two.

Well, if you knew BT, u'd know the outcome of the police report before you read it. High.? guaranteed ! Accident.? Only if by accident meant being anywhere around Brian, then yes. Feel bad for victim.? Kinda, at least glad he still has his life. Next idiot around BT might not be so lucky. Lock that guy up, rehab, something ! BTW.. how in the hell do you accidently shoot yourself with a shotgun, while "cleaning" it, in the chest nonetheless, and loaded too boot..? Well, we can all count that 3 things were loaded ( the shotgun, victim, & BT)
hmmm_

Well, fact is the victim cleans guns all the time and was talking on the phone to his grandmother when the gun went off. He had been helping out BT's parents on the farm and was asked to oil the shotgun. In fact, drugs were not involved at all. I'm assuming that Tim Buck Two must have made the same "accident" that he himself is referring to if he knows so much about Brian Tharp. People are very judgemental and make up a lot of stories in these times. Unfortunately they are quick to judge others when they themselves could easily be judged as well. Go ahead and wait for the investigation and reports- you will see that drugs were not involved at all, nor alcohol.

Judgmental.. LMFAO and ya, not hard to figure out who this is, and not a stretch figuring out who is once again coming to his defense. I lived the horror of trying to be a friend, only to be put in danger, and not on a mild side, many, many times. I've have had to dodge him when he was completely enraged at someone else, not me, and the first thing he went for was his sawed off shotgun.. I really thought he was going to shoot me or himself. FACT..! Was this accidental shooting alcohol related.. ya right, he doesn't drink.. but mountains of roxy cotin might have been a factor. To say anything on the level that any of this is made up is ludicrous.. as anyone who knows him will tell you, it's Real. FACT not Fiction.. He has wrecked, in spectacular fashion, every car that was ever bought FOR him, and to think that BT has any weapons anywhere in his vicinity is just an absolute scary thought. I have voiced my opinion for quite some time, only fall on deaf ears, and only to be excused by some lame ass logic. No Glass House Here.. Dealt with my demons, only to realize how much life really has to offer, and I decided to live the one life I have, to the fullest.. With my previous post I was happy with slightly thumbing my nose at the situation, glad no one died, but to defend it in any way gets me beyond fired up. I was satisfied with only 1 post concerning this, and will make this my last, no matter if reply or not, but I have to address the Giant Elephant in the room. Ask anyone in UC and they'll tell you their own stories of recklessness concerning BT, and quite honestly I could write a book on the subject, but after this, and after all the time vested in trying to help a friend, I refuse to spend anymore of my valuable life beyond this, trying to make a difference. I will stand for what I believe, and he is dangerous.. even the sheriff dept. knows, and acknowledges the issue, but he has managed to slip through the cracks each and every time, without getting the actual help he needs. LOCK HIM UP AND SEND HIM TO REHAB.. It's his only chance..! Quit defending him and force him into some accountability, for once..! To say, even for a second, that he wasn't pilled out of his mind is the True issue.. The only people that associate with him in any way are those that have his addiction in common, and i'm not one of those people..! I am so glad I made the decision to separate myself and my family.. As he only cares about his fu*king self and constantly put us in danger in one form or fashion. If you think I'm BSn', well if push comes to shove, I'd testify under oath.. So ya, made up stories, hardly..! Also, I'm being quite tactful, considering what I could actually say and apply to this, but I'm very much holding back and only scratching the surface of a dangerous issue. Things like saying his buddy was helping on the farm is ludicrous, as they don't farm anymore and lease out all the property. The fact, and it is FACT, is that someone almost was killed due to ignorance and negligence, and next time someone might not be so lucky... oh, ya, unless action is taken.. there will be a next time..! Also.. after re-reading what I've wrote, I've realized that if you push me, I might be so inclined to reverse my stance on time and commit one more rant, completely dropping the ball on it all.. and if I wrote what I know, I bet it would see national attention.. so watch it on your defending stance. I know more provable FACTS than u think ! Remember, not slander.. Real Provable Facts..! The only positive results that could come of this all is that maybe there is a platform for those that can do something, to come together and actually get him the help he needs. You (HMMM), and anyone else that even knows the slightest bit of truth on the matter, knows I'm right, no matter if you admit it or not.

HELP

Tim Buck 2.....Please help BT and everyone in this community. Tell all provable facts. If you do not someone will be killed or seriously hurt again. Will you be able to live with yourself if you don't come forward? The police read topix and maybe they will do something if you come forward. How many times has he beat up his dad and x-girlfriend (with his kids there)? Is it fair to BT or others to let him off every time even with drugs in his system because he has a prescription? Everyone knows he abuses drugs and needs help. Why don't the police test his blood to see how much drugs are in his body and how much the Dr. prescribed? His parents mean well, but they are really hurting him. I pray for his children and their mother. I hear she is a good person.

See.. Heart Strings Pulled again.. So, I'm compelled to reply so you know ( directed at HELP ). I have tried, more than ANYONE..! With that said.. again.. not hard to figure who this is.. because I am the only one who truly cared.. but that's over now, and I can live with myself because I have done everything in my power to make a difference.. I do not agree with this site, as there is a lot of BS here, and I'm not getting caught up in stooping to the level of most in this county running their mouthes.. I have said all this to his face, to his parents, to law enforcement, and anyone I thought could make a difference.. and my Heart Still Breaks.. you can't help someone who doesn't want help.. all you can do is commit them ( and only a family member can do that.. HINT..F'n..HINT )I'm not here to air dirty laundry.. only to try and make a positive change..! I only threatened that to HMMM because I'm so tired of people lying for him.. that's the ones that are gonna have trouble living with themselves..

I agree with everything Tim Buck Two is saying. These are very true statements. I know BT very well also. He used to be friends with my ex, who might I add is now dead due to alcohol/pill problems. There is a lot of truth to BT needing help. Seems like the law doesn't like to truly help the addicts. That is where the family needs to step in. BT has always been taken care of by his family (parents,siblings). When they say you need to let someone hit rock bottom they are right. If only we could have done that with my ex, maybe he would still be here. Tough love has to be one of the hardest things ever, but it is necessary. You have to let the person go on their own, no money, no house, no car, no nothing. You have to erase them from your life. To the addict it will only seem like you are doing this out of hatred, not love. But how are they going to get anything without any money, no house to live in, no car to drive, no insurance for pills. True fact they may start stealing and committing other crimes, but they will eventually get caught. They have to be left on their own, to fend for themselves. When you "help" them you are only hurting them more. They are like any other addict. They will lie, cheat, steal, to get what they want. They will make you feel guilty for not wanting to give them money or a place to stay. That is how their minds work, they must make you feel bad, they make you feel like it is your fault not theirs. They prey on those of us who they know have big hearts and care for others because it is so hard for us to say "NO". He needs let go, his parents need to have him leave their property with nothing but the clothes on his back. He will find some "so called" friends to stay with for a short time until they get tired of it too or fight over who's pills are who's and then end up hating each other, fighting, etc. Addiction is a terrible disease and it is harder for the families watching their loved one's with this disease. Unless you have dealt with this as a family you will never understand. I lost my ex, not because he was a bad person, but because we could not as a family say "NO". He will never know what his children will grow up to be. All of this over some pills. Sad but true. And it will happen with BT too, he has lost family, friends because of the pill problems and still cannot figure out what causes the death and destruction. That is because he is an addict and does not want to stop. This is a serious problem here in Union County and needs to be dealt with. However, I have had to deal with the law and they make it impossible to really help someone with an addiction problem. They only have "programs" that are not taken seriously by the addicts because it is just a class that is keeping them out of jail. Society enables them enough, we as a community and as family members need to take action. And sometimes the best action is "say NO".

I feel most sorry for Brian's parents Nick and Pam in this situation. They should contact a good professional that knows how to facilitate an intervention. They should have every one who has ever cared about BT tell what they have seen him doing to himself. Then offer a one time good deal. Rehab and NA. And absolutely no drug use verified by testing. When Brian objects, show him the door and never turn back. He may in fact die. but he will anyway as long as his denial continues.

See, this goes to show, I intend to give up on something, as time is precious, but I still am compelled to make positive change.. To "Knows".. I have to quite honestly say, I appreciate the support and and share in your pain as well.. I found myself at your x's grave this week, putting things back into perspective.. I do believe that I bring myself back to what is real in life by thinking of him, and how much of a impact he could continue to have, now gone.. As I stood there, and this was before the "accidental shooting".. the thoughts of a dear friend laid to rest, and another, who's headed down the same road, flooded me. When we buried TS.. BT didn't want to have anything to do with it.. not the funeral, calling, nothing.. I guess reality was too much for him to handle and he continued his selfish approach to all, and only thought of how it affected himself, instead of how he could step up and help the family. I'll only touch lightly on the funeral that BT did attend, where he WAS smashed on pills, and disrespected everyone, completely boisterious, nodding, the works, but denies it to this day.. SAD.. I'm tired of being upset and thinking on all this.. Good Luck and Goodbye..

Tim Buck Two...I wasn't actually jumping to BT's defence but moreso the victim. I do not know BT and I have heard nothing good about him. The first words out of anyone's mouth when you say is name is 'he is crazy'- I'm simply saying that not all people involved with addicts are addicts themselves. I happen to have many loved ones with certain degrees of dependency issues and I do not have any of those problems. I'm just saying that the victim did not necessarily have an addiction problem. I know for a fact that the Tharp's DO still bail hay which is what the victim was helping with. Who knows? I guess the investigation will say and if you are so full of facts then maybe BT will be the next obituary due to overdose or a related incident. I have no heart for addicts who choose to abuse themselves. I was more for the defense of the victim.

You are all pathetic for letting these two druggies be the topic of conversation and for spending time on this BS site! Someone told me to come check it out but this gossip shit is not my thing. Yep, they're probably both big ass drug/pill heads or whatever but one must wonder what the hell all of you have in common with them to know so much! Especially Tim Buck Two. You sound like you have a very personal issue/ past relationship with Tharp. Outta here I def have more to do than gossip on this site.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
