    OPEN FORUM > Question About a comment from the Elizabeth Olten Case

    Hello Dave!

    My Name is Chris (from Germany) and i just stumbled over your Blog, while researching the Elizabeth Olten Case. Because it was not all over the media in Germany since poor Elizabeth was murdered by ADB in Oct 2009, i've only become aware of this case recently.

    I have a question about a comment you posted below an entry about her Youtube profile.

    It says:
    I learned how to use a gun when I was a child. One time, my father took me out squirrel hunting. I was the spotter. Look, I said, as I pointed up a tree. My father took aim and squeezed the trigger. Pow, just like that, the squirrel fell off its perch and down to the ground. I walked over to it. It was writhing in pain and I watched intently until it took its final breath. That experience really impacted me tremendously. I couldn’t have been more than 10 years old, if that, but I never wanted to see an animal die again. Because of my reaction, my father never hunted again, either. To this day, I have never owned a gun or weapon of any kind and I never will. I don’t mind skeet shooting or target practice, but I have no desire to watch anything die by the hands of another.

    Even at that age, I knew the difference between life and death. I still can’t figure out why I am not a vegetarian.

    Is this a comment posted by Alyssa on her Youtube profile or something you added?

    Thank you very much, Chris!

    Hi, Christian! My niece lives aus Berlin and she's a real cutey pie.

    That statement, about hunting and watching the squirrel fall, was made by me. It was a bad experience in my life and, for the life of it, I can't understand why I'm not a vegetarian, either. I do eat a lot less meat than I used to, but that may have something to do with my age and health.

    It is my pleasure to answer you. Thank you for coming in and asking. Also, if you ever have any questions you want to ask about anything I write, please feel free. There is also a way to contact me near the bottom of the left sidebar.

    Thank you very much for answering Dave and clear it up for me!

    I have to say this case really got me - the more i research about it the more questions seem to appear...

    So have you ever been to Berlin? I can only recommend it - fantastic city :)

    I live in Hamburg :)

    Greetings, Christian

    My pleasure, Christian. I really enjoy communicating with people from all around the world, so feel free to comment anywhere on my blog. A little known secret is that your comments come right through in Open Forum, but in the articles I write, they go into moderation until I let them out. Also, anyone can ask for a membership. All that does is allow you to bypass moderation. That's about it, but it makes it a lot more convenient, especially if you're trying to carry on a conversation with another commenter on a particular topic. Keep that in mind. Also, don't ever be afraid to ask me or anyone else questions. Hopefully, I will be able to answer them.

    I have never been to Europe, but I would like to go within the next couple of years, and Berlin would be at the top of my list.them.

    I knew a guy from Hamburg. Klaus... I can't remember his last name, but he came to Orlando on business a couple of times a year. Good guy. So keep me in mind if you ever visit Florida.
