You know life was tough for me this past week and then I thought about how tough your life has been through your struggle. I opened up the site and saw Sand has been removed. That's great! I hope the Arbuckles get REAL charges against them and go away for this. Diane and I have talked and know Tim and Tom and wanted to tell you they're nothing but a couple of strung out kids who think noone will stand up to them. Well, you did, and I want to thank you for your courage. Maybe now they'll think twice about beating on the girls around here. Maybe the girls will have a little more courage and face them in court and maybe the men around here will stand up for their daughters.

I am so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how horrific it is to lose a child, as I almost lost mine recently to suicide. I am someone very close to three of these boys involved. I heard about the terror these kids were feeling prior to this incident. They were terrified of Vinnie. I wish the Springfield Police had done their job then so that none of us would be where we are today. Again, I am so sorry for your loss. I just feel compelled to let you know how scared these kids were of your son. I am sending prayers to everyone involved but do not feel that these kids were murderers. Mistakes were made but I assure you this was not calculated murder.

Vin Sr, after knowing you and your family for more then 30 years there is not a chance that you are "scumbags" as they call you. the real scumbags are the "scumbags" who took your sons life with no remorse at all as they say "What go's around comes around" And some day when Kyle bolaski sitting in jail with his scumbag friends including sands then justice will be served!!!

Vin Sr. I am so glad to see your efforts have paid off and Sand has been removed. Hopefully this new prosecutor is not like Sand and will fight for you. I have lived here all my life and I can't ever remember a District Attorney being taken off a case such as this. I'm sure your son is very proud. I will pray that you will finally get justice.
02-27-2010 9:23:00 PM EST
I knew this day would come! Sand screwed this case so much it was only a matter of time. This is great news! This reaffirms that which we knew all along. Sand is corrupt! He coddles to the drug dealers and criminals and him stepping down proves that. Now that his protection is gone Kyle will be going away. So will his partners! Mr. Tamburello you have done us all a favor. God Bless you and your family.

i just wanted to say that i hope the hearing goes well on tuesday i really hope and pray that you get justice for your son it seems that you loved him very much always loved and never forgotten

Dear Shelley and Relieved: Thank you so much for your kind words and support. SHELLEY, the event was a huge success! The outpouring of support was sensational! RELIEVED, We understand exactly what you mean about the repercussions. So many people have written us about the same concerns. But take heart, you will not have to worry about that too much longer.

I wanted to extend our love on Valentine's Day to you and your family and to let you know your son is in our thoughts. Please know there are a lot of people here that feel the way I do, but a lot of people fear repercussions from the Bolaski's if they express themselves. You are in our thoughts.

THINKING OF YOU ALL TODAY AND HOPE THAT THE EVENT IS A HUGE SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!

One thing I must point out: everything on this site is backed up by legal court documents, police statements, statements by the defendants themselves and Grand Jury testimony. These documents are available through the courts.

Vinnie, you are correct by stating threats not solving anything, I just wonder what kind of people can type such horrible things to a family that has lost a child. I admire you soooo much, you are a very strong man. I know you will get justice, and I hope when you do, you can just kick back and smile at all the ones defending the murderers....
02-05-2010 8:31:32 PM EST
Gina, thank you for your support but please do not resort to threats of physical violence. Anger and violence will never solve anything. I do agree with Chris on one thing: that everyone is hearing different things and everyone has their own opinion. But one day soon the real facts will be known. Again I thank you for your support.
Chris how can you tell Gina not talk about things she knows nothing about? How do you know she doesn't also know these people? I can tell you this: there are many FACTS of this case that will be forthcoming. What right do you have to voice your opinion yet tell others to silence themselves. What right do you have to tell Diane her stories are crazy when she also obviously knows these people well. You have a right to your opinion but do not have a right to silence others.
02-05-2010 8:10:38 PM EST
Chris: You have your opinion and I respect that. But it doesn't change the facts that Vinnie was shot in the back and then brutally beaten by these nice respectable, goodhearted boys! Known drug dealers that sell their poison to their neighbors children possibly even your own. You use the Lord's name to justify murder! I can't believe that you condone that! It is hard for me to believe that you are a Vermont "elder" and condone murder and drug dealing by these "good ol' boys". Kyle, Corey, Ucci, Tristan and Arbuckle will pay for their crimes, as will everyone that lied and perjured themselves. Sand cannot protect them any longer! The day of reckoning is coming and there is nothing that is going to stop it! You say you are glad that Kyle murdered my son! Make sure you write and let him know that when he is in prison paying his debt for something he didn't do!

OMG Chris, if that is what you call "good hearted boys" I sure wouldn't want to see what the bad hearted boys do....If Kyle didn't do it, then who did? I used to defend trash also, but then I grew up and realized I had to take off my rose colored glasses, you must have found them .
02-02-2010 7:24:00 PM EST
Dear Relieved: Thank you for your kind words. You and others like you give us the strength and determination to carry on our fight. Not just against the Kyle's and Corey's or any of the others involved but also against the corrupt judicial system that believe they are above the law and allow these men to return to the streets again and again. Whenever we get a hate post, such as from padraic, there are always more posts about the concerns of the people and their support. As long as there are people like you and Diane and all the others that are tired of the revolving door justice system and reject the drug dealers and criminals that the judiciary allow to inflict their disease on others they will not win! And we will not give up until justice has been served and the men like Sand that have their own brand of justice are held accountable. Please know that no matter how many times the haters try to turn this into Vermont against the world we will never let that happen because of the good people of Vermont like yourself and Diane. God Bless you and thank you for your prayers.

agrees with thoughts, padraic, safe in boston or whatever name you are hiding behind, you do not put your real name because you are a coward. You talk big behind the veil of secrecy but your cowardice blasts out through every word. You say you worry about revenge. Well, you should, but not from us. There is nothing I can do to make your life more miserable than it is now. You are sitting up at 3:30 in the morning, your hatred fueled by drugs and drink. If it was revenge we wanted it would have been. You make up lies about imaginary threats from us to hide your cowardice! No, you are not worried about revenge from us but from your own. You have put 3 posts and they have been nothing but hatred and insults, anger and bigotry. You insist on making this out to be Vermont against the world. Anyone that reads this site knows it is nothing about Vermont against the world. It is against the hate and venom that people like you spew out. Your posts say that all Vermonters are like you and that you hate everyone. You are wrong! There are good people in Vermont. People that care about justice not about hatred. People that want to live in harmony with their neighbors around the country. No, You do not represent them. You represent everything that the good people of Vermont, and the world, stand against. Hatred and bigotry. The same hatred and bigotry that now has our country in a war! The hatred that has killed thousands of our fellow Americans and is now trying to spread throughout the world. You breed on the fear that you instill in your own people. There is nothing good that can ever come from this. Isn't it enough that there is one man dead and countless lives ruined? There is no place in society for the hatred and bigotry that seems to engulf you. Your life is miserable so you take your misery out on everyone else which, unfortunately, happens to be your own people. But I must thank you for showing the world the hatred and bigotry we must continue to fight. For showing your fellow Vermonters the sickness that is still in their midst. Your hatred has enforced our determination to see justice to the end. We will not be deterred by lies, or insults, threats or coercion. The only threat we made was the threat of justice for those involved. It is obvious that you are one of those and the threat of justice is weighing heavily on your mind. And well it should. For one day soon you can be sure we will meet face to face. On the court of justice as you begin paying your debt to society!

Oh, one more thing..'Are you safe in Boston" you won't post your name or email because you know you are WRONG and you don't want everyone to know who you are..I don't blame you there, if I would have posted a message like yours, i wouldn't want people to know who I was either.

"Are you safe in Boston" the ONLY hate in this website is posted from YOU and YOUR buddy "Thoughts"If you feel this website is such a parasite, then stay the heck off of it...Also, can you please point out where anything is being taken out on the Vermonters, by what I am reading Vin Sr. is trying to make sure that the "Vermonters" are not put in the same situation as he has been in for over a year now. I think you and "Thoughts" must be reading a entirely different website then which I am. I pray every night that Vin Sr. finds justice for Vinnie. I think when you go to bed tonight you need to pray for the same thing. You never know , oneday you may be in his spot and then you would understand what he and his family are going through, but until then you need to get the facts straight before you go posting ignorant thoughts!!!!!
Are you safe in Boston?
01-31-2010 3:33:01 AM EST
I would just like to say this site is so full of hate! You hate and yet you cannot just mourn the death of your son for what it is. You hate as you take it out on us vermonters. If there is no room for hate then delete this site as it is a parasite to the source. And as for the peoples representing our State I am proud to say i am from here. I do not write my name nor email because of the threats recieved on your end.. I wouldn't myslef want revenge taken on me.
01-30-2010 10:46:03 PM EST
Padriac what? What's your e-mail? If you are their lifelong friend I now know what we must do to make sure these people face justice. If they are as hate filled as you then I thank you for making our decision easier to make sure these people all face justice to the fullest extent of the law. If there was any hesitancy in our quest for justice you have just eliminated any doubt! These men do not belong on the street with their hate and anger and bigotry. Your hate and their hate is a disease but with every disease there is a cure.
01-30-2010 9:43:05 PM EST
Agrees with thoughts: No messages of hate will ever get on this site. No cowardly rants, hiding behind the veil of hatred and bigotry will ever have any place in this society. You do not even have the courage to sign your name or give your e-mail. I will not give your hate filled diatribe the dignity of a post. I will not insult and embarrass the good people of Vermont by allowing you to shame them before the world. It is people like you, with your hate and bigotry that cause these things to happen. If you want to post give your name and e-mail. I would like to show the people of Vermont just what type of person they have speaking for them!

As a homeowner, and Parent, in Chester, not everyone is thinking the way Thoughts is Vin Sr. I also saw the bumper sticker at Jiffy Mart, and I have to say, I had no idea this would be about the MacKenzie Park incident. What got me to open it was the “We’re not safe in Vermont” thing. But, after hearing about all the crap these kids are telling everyone, I knew there was more to the story. First: I commend you on your search for justice. All of us Vermonters are sick and tired of the drugs and crap these kids are slinging around here, and we have a completely different take on this, than Thoughts. Here’s my take. Once the trigger is pulled, it makes no difference where the shooter was aiming. Each and every person has a main vein running through their limbs. If that vein is severed, there is no chance of stopping the flow of blood. When you point a gun at a person, you risk severing any of those veins. The fact that Bolaski is a hunter, doesn’t justify what he did on that day. I don’t care if he’s the greatest marksman on the planet. No one can predict a bullet trajectory once it leaves the gun. From what I gather, there was a lot of drinking going on so there was no “going down to the ball field they thought would have been a stop coming around our friends saga, and scare him back to where he lives.” They knew what they were doing. Now, if I were to walk into a store with a few of my buddies and an argument breaks out with anyone in that store, if one of my buddies shoots someone in that store, anyone with that shooter is as guilty as if they pulled the trigger themselves. Whether they knew it was going to happen, or not. In your son’s case, the threat of bodily harm was over when he started smashing the truck. Anyone there had all the time in the world to escape. They chose not to. In fact, they participated. While I don’t know all the facts, I know enough about the law to say All persons involved in the cold-blooded killing of your son is as guilty as the Bolaski boys. Both of them. It doesn’t matter what Thoughts says their intention was. They both knew the risk, and neither of them chose to stop each other. I agree with you, Vin Sr. You’re doing the right thing by going after all involved, because they’re all guilty of the crime, itself, or lying to the Grand Jury to cover the crime. THEY COMMITTED THE ULTIMATE CRIME AND THEY ALL SHOULD BE PROSECUTED. By the way, I never got the impression that you were attacking us as Vermonters. I don’t know where thoughts got that. I felt you were protecting us from the same system that failed you. Please know our hearts go out to you and your family and that all Vermonters don’t feel the way Thoughts does.

Dear Thoughts, Thank you for your input about our site. We welcome the opportunity to hear from different views. However, I believe that you did not read thoroughly enough. You say you can understand the pain we feel. Unless you have felt the loss that we have in such a violent manner you could never understand the pain and anguish. You state about actual "Facts". Yet they are so far from the actual facts that I have to point them out. You say that Vinnie would have killed Kyle first. When the actual facts are Vinnie did not go after Kyle, but the truck. According to all witness accounts including Kyle himself, Vinnie did not chase Kyle around the car when Kyle went and got the gun. He stayed on the other side. Kyle, after getting the gun then ran around to Vinnie. You say they carry the guns 24/7 yet by their own admission stopped to get the other gun. You say Kyle gave Tristan the gun for protection but it was Corey who brought the gun out and by Tristans own admission he did not ask for the gun! This story was made up by Kyle and Corey and discredited by Tristan himself! Also you say that Tristan called Kyle up balling, but the facts are Kyle called Tristan! You then state that Kirby called Ucci, again this is wrong, Ucci called Kirby's phone looking for Vinnie several times! You say that call had nothing to do with The Bolaski's yet by their own admission encouraged Ucci to get Vinnie on the phone and down to the field. You say Ucci persuaded Kyle to go down to the field, but again by their own admission it was agreed to by all. You say 3 men advanced to Vinnie, conversations unknown, again, by eye witness accounts and by their own testimony there were about 6-8 people advancing toward Vinnie stating they were going to kick his ass, threatening him! You said I stated Vinnie zoomed in on Kyle, which I never stated at all! I and all witnesses to that, state Vinnie went right at the truck! You say that Vinnie was running at the Bolaski's and that Kyle is such a good hunter he would have shot him in the head. Well, according to all witnesses except Kyle and Corey, Vinnie was limping away from them trying to get away! It almost sounds like you condone the cowardly act of shooting Vinnie in the back! Vinnie was shot in the back. How do you explain that?? You say that the only reason Corey shot at Vinnie was because Vinnie was running at him! Running at him? After being shot through both legs? They could have run backwards away from Vinnie and he still would never have caught them. It almost sounds as if you condone this cowardly act of shooting Vinnie in the back even though you admit he was shot in the back. You say that Corey, Ucci and Arbuckle should not be called killers. Well, anyone that willfully plans and follows through on the plan of murder and then kicks a dying, defenseless person while he is laying helpless are murderers! You then state that I have threatened the people of Vermont. That couldn't be further from the truth! Never in my whole site do I once say anything derogatory about the people of Vermont! On the contrary I am trying my hardest to help them and the majority of people understand that. I don't understand your post at all! Where did you get the statement that Corey pleaded with them not to go down to the field "because it's none of their business". This is the first we heard of that statement. If true, It just proves that Corey knew it was wrong and that there were other intentions rather than just talking to Vinnie! You talk as though you know more than you are actually saying. It is obvious that though you say you read my site through thoroughly you did not. If you did you would not have gotten so many facts wrong! You say I should be going after Sand, Well, if you had read my site you would see that is exactly what this site is about! From the very first page to the last. Kyle may have been brought up by a good loving family and I'm sure they did not bring him up to be a drug pusher and a murderer, but he is! Those are the facts! As corroborated by many of your fellow Vermonters. Your statement that "If Kyle had wanted to kill Vinnie he would have shot him in the head or heart, but instead shot him in the back" was totally absurd! You have distorted and twisted all the facts of this case to try to condone the cowardly act of shooting Vinnie in the back! Like I said, I welcome all views but views that are backed up by facts! I am under the impression that you are close to the men involved. You state things as having first hand knowledge, but knowledge of hearsay, not "ACTUAL FACTS!" You say you don't think that Kyle intended to kill Vinnie. Then explain to me what you think Kyle intended to do by shooting Vinnie in the back and then brutally beating him with the rifle as he lay dying, WHICH YOU NEVER ONCE MENTION! I would love to hear your explanation of that, but as a person not a "THOUGHT!"
