ashamed in vermont
05-13-2011 10:25:40 PM EST
Reading about the actions of tristan blanchard at the trial reflects what type of person he is. a drug dealing, lying, murdering coward. we have known about him for years. no matter if he says he now has stopped dealing drugs, and is a perfect person, HE IS A LIAR! the district attorney has shown him to be a liar. Mr. Tamburello believe it or not you have a lot of respect from the people around here. A lot of people would never have done what you have done. you stood up for your son, never gave up. your courage and strength to go through what you and your family have gone through is admirable. you have our deepest respect. we know these men. their lack of remorse for what they have done is deplorable. I must tell you this tragedy makes us ashamed and sorry. sorry because we know these men. and ashamed because we never had the courage to do what you have done. tristan bolaski and their crew are bad people! If we had the courage to do what you have done and fight back against these cowards your son may still be alive today. I can't tell you how sorry we are. we are a good people. Vermont is a good state. I know this is hard for you to believe and I don't blame you. besides having you son killed you have been treated so terrible by this system of justice. this horrible crime has shamed us all. we hope and pray for you that you may get justice and bolaski be put in jail for the rest of his useless life, along with his gang of accomplices. we believe you will get justice. God Bless you and your family.

The facts are clear it was cold bloodied murder. Vinnie went there alone without a weapon, the other side went there with 2 guns, and they asked for Vinnie to meet them there, they lured him there. They came in a large group of guys, they planned on hurting and killing Vinnie who had no one on his side to back him up. I'm sure Vinnie knew this, and the only thing he did was assualt this kid's 'truck'. Vinnie never assualted anyone, they have no wounds, so there defence that it was self defence is false.
Fact 2, no one but Vinnie was hurt and murdered on that horrible night, so how could this be self defence. How does being shot in the back after being shot in the leg be called self defense, it can't.
Then they brutalized him as he laid dying by beating him with the butt of the rifle on his head til the rifle broke and then if that wasn't enough they kicked him in the face, the whole group of men have blood on thier hands, not self defence. If hanging was legal, I be there now hanging everyone one of them myself, and I wouldn't flick and eye. I believe justice hasn't been given in this murder. These punks are running around Vermont and got away with a horrible crime and the courts and police up there should hang there heads in shame.
I strongly dislike, if not hate Vermont after reading what happen to Vinnie and how he was murdered but even more how thier family was treated after he died by the police and the legal department there. There has to be justice here and now, but I strongly believe if they get away with it here, they will meet God someday and thier evil deeds will be layed before His feet and they will pay them for thier crimes there, and hell isn't a pleasant place for eternity.
If anyone good should come out of this murder, is this, Ronnie and Vinnie the parents never backed down and let this murder get swepted under the rug. They stood their ground, they have lost everything. They lost thier son, thier peace, thier business, thier home, and thier soul to the injustice that was inflicted on them. How much can a family suffer, how much pain can one endure from a senseless murder from a pack of punks from Vermont. They murdered more then Vinnie, they destroyed a family with grief and pain so deep and horrible there are no words to describe thier suffering, only God can save them now. My heart goes out to them and to thier children and family and close friends. This murder affected alot of people and the injustice this family has suffered through has torn at the fabric of decency and belief that the legal system puts away the crimnals. Well as we can see by the facts, they don't...... .
Hoping you find justice

yesterdays article in the valley was not surprising. blanchard treats the girls around here the same way reported in that paper. he's a known drug dealer that entices 13 and 14 year old girls to sleep with him with those drugs. he should be on trial for what he does to them. teh whole gang should be. if i had the courage u and ur family had id put them away forever. jsut no your not alone and a lot of us hope u find the justice u seek.

I just want to say how truly proud of you I am Auntie Ronnie & Vinnie. You've given up so much & I know you both feel as though you did what you had to do. The refusal to back down or give up against all odds is so amazing. I can not believe how determination to get justice keeps you going when you have no more to give of yourself. My hope for you is once justice prevails you both can go on living an actual life instead of existing, instead of surviving just to fight another day. The one mistake Kyle Bolaski and minions made...they thought showing up in numbers & guns 'lil Vinnie would back down, obviously the found out differently. The one mistake Vermont made...thinking the Tamburellos would back down...well I'm pretty sure they've realized the parents were the ones who taught their son to never back against all odds. NO FEAR! Vinnie will not be coming home, but I know he is with you this week and I know how proud he must be of you two. The love of a parent is unconditional and I could never imagine loosing a child and I know you two have been imprisoned for the last 2 1/2 years; held captive by the loss, the memories, & the heart ache...well let's make sure Kyle being found guilty and going to prison takes some burden off you. I wish you luck & I pray all the hard work and dedication pays off. You have given up your lives for this & not that I expected anything else from you, but I hope you have some sort of closure & you can move forward with your lives. I love you both and I am so proud of you. Never give up or back down!

I have been following the trial in the news and papers and I am appalled at the evidence that Robert Sand held out! The evidence shown , just up to this point, was far more than enough for a Grand Jury indictment. Robert sand should be disbarred and taken out of office right now for his conduct in this case and what he has put the Tamburello family through. There is no excuse for his conduct. We pray that you find justice and peace.
05-11-2011 9:51:36 PM EST
Finally you will have justice! We have prayed for you and your family. What you have been able to do is nothing less than incredible! You brought this back from a no case to a trial! That is absolutely amazing! Bolaski must be punished for taking the life of your son. Your perseverance is an incredible show of love for your son. May God Bless you and give you the justice you deserve.

No body deserves to die over drugs. It's sad that all of this happened over something so simple and so wrong ; drugs. I am deeply sorry for your loss, & i am also sorry some people can't put themselves in you & your families shoes for one minute..
05-10-2011 8:22:12 PM EST
Your son is lucky to have had parents like you. Absolutely amazing, it shows through your dedication how much you love your son. This is a sin, a travesty, but you didn't let it slide, you played your hand, with pride. Never settle for less brother, never. This is a sin and when its said an done, Robert Sand should be investigated. A minority or poor white man gets thrown in prison for hitting some in a bar brawl, this creep murdered a man, and hes been free for three years. What a fucking sin. I am keeping tabs on this case, all will be settled. You are brave and dedicated parents, your son is proud.

My prayers are with you and the family as you relive this horrible tragedy! May justice finally be served!!!

To know that this happened in the fashion that it did is dispicable. To know that it took three years for this just to br brought to trial is even worse. I have heard alot about this and have been angered many nights and days. most people see this as "just another case in the judicial system," but I see it as YOU, VINCENT TAMBURELLO making a change, not only in the state of Vermont, but also in this crazy place we call world. I pray for you and your family and I am sorry that this happened to you. I hope you fid justice soon. Vinnie is watching over you everyday to help you through it.

To "Relieved in Chester" this is a comment to your post about the Arbuckle brothers. It is such ignorance to put them in the same category when obviously you know nothing about them. I know both of them very well and they are like day and night. Although Tim has not made the best name for them being the older brother why is it that you have to bring Tom's name into it? He had nothing to do with what happened to Vinnie. If anything should be said about Tom it should be that he is not an ignorant person like the rest of the cowards that were down at the ball field that evening. It is a shame that you had to associate him with all of this. He is very loving, hes a hard worker, and wonderful father. So next time you want to assume and write something about someone that you know nothing about why dont you think about wether what you may have heard and or think of someone is really true? How would you like your name thrown out there when completely innocent. Think of it like this. If your sister is a whore does that mean you are too? Not at all. There is nothing one can do about what there siblings or family choose to make of themselves and the actions that they make. Get real. You can not choose your blood but you can choose your friends and the people you associate with. So why dont you keep peoples names out of your mouth that you know nothing about. You have no idea who he is or what he has been threw. And for you Vin Sr. I am deeply sorry for your loss. I hope that kyle bolaski is charged for the crime that he committed and i hope that you, your family, and Vinnie can finally be at peace and find the justice that you are looking for.

I can't imagine how hard this time must be for you. This has been a long hard road that you have traveled. I hope it ends for you with the conviction of Kyle Bolaski. Good luck! We pray for you and that you finally get the justice you deserve.
05-07-2011 9:26:16 PM EST
God bless you and good luck on your trial. With the evidence so much against Bolaski there should be no other way except conviction, I am praying for you to get the justice you deserve.

Just wanted to send a message of support and know that I wish I could be up there with you - but I do know that the room will be filled with "Townies" if only in prayer and spirit to keep you strong through this. I do know that Justice will be served. God Bless you all.

Dear Vinnie and Ronnie,
I am Jim Bartick's wife, Jim speaks of you often and when he worked with you at Com-Tract Comm. and Trodella.
We were extremely saddened by what I found on Vinnie Jr.'s website this evening when I Googled you. You have our heartfelt sympathies and you are in our thoughts and prayers.
We live in Pensacola, Florida. Jim would love it if you called him sometime, Vinnie. Our phone number is 850-477-7890.
God's blessings to you and your family.

I was in school with Chris and Mel and would hear stories about the Charlestown days, I could tell how much they cared for him, It saddens me to hear what happened to Vinny, and that feeling has turned to rage as justice has not been served, I hope with the new trial he will be convicted of 2nd degree murder.
03-03-2011 6:36:45 PM EST
You're right Jack. Many officials use that secrecy to their advantage, not for justice. As they say, "You can indict a ham sandwich in a Grand Jury". Unfortunately some of them regard a human life lower than a ham sandwich. What makes it so bad is they answer to no one. Because the Grand Jury proceedings are secret they can do what they want without answering to anyone for their actions. No one sees what goes on behind closed doors. That's what makes my case so different. I have the Grand Jury minutes. I can prove District Attorney Sand misused the Grand Jury. I hope to use this as a way to show that there has to be some accountability. Without accountability there will always be someone to abuse their powers of office and there will always be a mistrust by the American people of their justice system. And there will always be dishonest district Attorneys, like Robert Sand, to betray that trust.

Vin Sr. I don't know if you are following the death of the young shot by police officers. the grand jury in that case failed to find fault with the officers though there were many different accounts. Most saying the boy was just moving his car as directed by the polioe and then was allowed to bleed to death on the sidewalk. I couldn't understand how that was presented to show that one sided testimony. But after reading your case and how that district attorney in Vermont manipulated the grand jury in your case makes sense now why they keep them private. So they can do whatever they want and present the evidence as they see fit, regardless of the truth! This is a disgrace to the American justice system!

Thank you anonymous. These tips are very helpful. It also shows the concern from citizens of the lawlessness in Vermont. The outpouring of help has really helped immensely in preparing the case against Bolaski. It is very distressful to see the hold Bolaski has on the judiciary. Do they really believe that they are above the law? Bolaski is going away for life, no matter how much they try to protect him. Then justice will visit Sand and those that aided him. And it is with the courage of citizens like yourself that will make it possible. Thank you and everyone that like you has the courage to do the right thing and make a stand.

Vin Sr. my son told me that Kyle was bragging that he was arrested again, not long after his drug arrest with shooting and possession of a firearm and drug possession. But he said they never charged him! Kyle was bragging that he has them by the balls! You should have your lawyer check into this! If this is true then there is something very seriously wrong here! Anyone else would be in jail by now! What does Bolaski have on Sand? Was Sand paid off? If what you say is true about giving this new prosecutor evidence you have collected implicating more people, Why has no one else been charged with anything? Are you going to put this evidence on your site? I hope so. I know there is a lot of people that is dying to see the truth. Good luck in your fight!
