Diane, thank you for your heartfelt words. But please do not blame yourself, Rather it is the judiciary of your state that has failed to act time and time again. It is they that have allowed this to happen. They that have betrayed the trust of the people. The proof of this shows in that Kyle Bolaski has 3 serious felonies against him yet he is allowed to stay on the streets to inject his poison on the innocent children and people of Vermont! How many have Overdosed on his and Blanchard's poison? How many have died? How long will they allow this to continue? No, Diane it is not your fault, nor do we blame the people of Vermont. But at some point the people have to take it unto themselves to make sure those responsible for allowing this to happen are held accountable. It will happen. I know it. We have received many e-mails and letters by people such as yourself, concerned about the growing problem of the law failing to act and they are getting fed up! We will do everything we can to help but ultimately it is the people that will change things. I pray it will not be too late. God Bless you!

When Kyle broke into my home 8 years ago, i knew he would end up dead or in jail. i watched him peddle his drugs around here ever since. i prayed he would get caught for polluting our children. Him and that other kid tristanhave sold drugs around here forever. i never thought he would resort to killing your son, though. Now i'm ashamed i never did anything about him. i could have called the police at anytime and i didn't. i feel somewhat responsible for your loss and i don't know what to say. i hope your family finds the justice i probably should have sought years ago. Maybe then your son wouldn't have met him.

As I was reading all of this, the only thing that came to mind for me was Law Abiding Citizen.

It is obvious that the good ole boy network of vermont protects its own. The same can be said of the code of silence that protects alot of townies. Kyle is definately guilty and deserves nothing less than life in prison. on the other hand my knowledge of Vinny was that of a tough guy that liked to fight and tended to operate heavily under the influence. But hey, alot of us in life make bad decisions and move on from there. Was Vinny innocent of his actions, NO. Vinny was known to never back down from a fight and the vermont boys knew this. in their own cowardice, they took a life to avoid a fight. If his brothers are as tough as vinny, i say we lock Kyle in the same room. He will be begging for prison. Memory: I remeber going to lil vins house to skate the halfpipe and that damn ferret trying to run up your pant leg. That was one stinky animal. :) Happy Holidays.

Vin, may God Bless and comfort you and your family. Please be strong and keep up the fight. I'm sure Vinnie is with you, watching you and will be with you on Christmas day! You are all in our prayers.

I would like to wish the whole Tamburello family a very Merry Christmas. I can't imagine the sorrow you all feel at this time. May God be with you and Bless you all!

Anonomous, I read your message from 10~08~09. You say iow biased you are. Yet you have trashed a young man that has lost his life! You say, YOU SAW THIS BUILDING? You also say, things about lil Vinnie about~Drugs, alcohol, steroids! Yet you seem to have left out what the other young men do! I am sure just before they murdered lil Vinnie, they dropped their bibles! If your going to mention horrible things about one, don't omit what the others were into. So you saw this building and didn't try to stop it? You need to check your parenting, because as a parent HOW CAN YOU SAY SUCH THINGS TO PARENTS THAT HAVE HAD TO BURY A CHILD? I can tell you if Vinnie n Ronnie SAW something like that building with any children, they would have put a stop to it! SO ANNONOMOUS....CHECK YOUR PARENTING....DON'T TALK ABOUT THEIR OTHER CHILDREN TOO....As soon as you put your bibld down that is!

AmberT and Donna. Thank you for your kind words. It means a lot to my family. This was murder and it is being covered up. We have gotten a lot of support from the good people of Vermont that are tired of this happening. When the truth comes out, and it will, it will be shocking to see how this went down and the part the judicial system has played.

I am pretty sure anonymous is kyle Bolaski aunt and uncle

11-07-2009 5:23:30 PM EST
My mother lives very close to where your son lost his life. I feel that justices has not been done for your son. Kyle Bolaski I have know since he was born and he is a bully, he was always one to pick on and hurt others. He always felt he was above the law. This was murder... plain and simple and I do not understand what the state of vermont is doing. Everyone makes mistakes in their lives no one is perfect but no one deserves to be shot in the back. I have been so surprised at this case Kyle Bolaski is out fishing on the conn. river in his dad's boat, he is doing drugs and stealing medication, with not a care in the world.Justice needs to happen for Vinnie. I believe Vinnie words from beyond, Justice will happen. I also believe Sand is a coward and needs a new job maybe painting and mowing lawns for Kyles dad. I want your family to know that many many of us here in Chester and Springfield feel your son murder needs to go away to the big house for a long long time. Your family is in my prayers.

As a parent myself I am shocked by the things posted by anonymous. Lets stick to the facts here. The fact is that this man was removed from the lives of the people who love him most in a senseless act of violence. There is nothing that can be said that will change this. Vinnie Sr. I commend you for being so strong. Strong enough to face the public and get the real story out there. I can only imagine what your family has gone through and I am truly sorry for you loss. I will be emailing the suggested people with my thoughts as well. My prayers are with you and your family.

You know, i miss hanging out with my brother so much.. i miss watchin the patriots game with him, i miss havin som1 to let my stresses too, havin som1 who cared so much about me he was always there to lend me a shoulder to lean on, later in my life when i had troubles, he was always there give a helpin hand, and to anyone who knew him and was loved by vinnie, knew he was alwasy there for a helping hand.. this site states only facts and all it is intended for is a fair trial, not for vermont bashing.. we have visited vermont for my hockey tournaments when i was younger and always had great experiences, we very much liked being in vermont and the people were great.. but now all i can think about vermont is how it was the last place my big brother was alive.. i miss and love you vinnie, i know you still have my back from heaven

I read that post, Scott, and like you said, Chris was portrayed as a bad guy because that's great for the ratings--not the person. TV doesn't care about the people. It's a sad world when someone can stray from the issues at hand. This site isn't about Chris. It's about the system that failed the same people they swore to protect. Why that particular poster even brought him into this is hard to understand. If everyone were to read the facts, we'd have a mutual understanding that it's the system that continues to inflict the pain, not the Tamburellos. What happened, happened. We can't change that. But we can change the system that failed them. You have to kind of wonder why these new charges were brought forth. Isn't it election time? Hmmmmmm!!! Wgat happens after the election? Hmmmm!!!

10-27-2009 11:54:45 AM EST
Exactly. Like I said before, Vinnie was not an instigator but he certainly never backed down when challenged like that. Violence isn't always the answer but at least Vinnie would settle the score fairly so people could live to fight another day and he didn't have to hide behind weapons. And to the person who said that Chris has the same thirst for drugs, alcohol, and brutality as Vinnie did... get a clue. You probably don't even know Chris the PERSON beyond what you've seen on TV on reality shows. He is more than capable of handling himself much like Vinnie was, but like Vinnie, he doesn't pick fights; only stands up for himself when antagonized.

Scott--well said. Anyone who knows Vinnie, knows he would never instigate the fight. They would also know he would defend those he loved. As anyone would. When these clowns approached the car, the girls became victim, not Vinnie. Vinnie could handle himself, and, in that given situation, anyone would have done the same thing. Vinnie didn't need a weapon to fight. He would never use a weapon on another PERSON either. Like Josh said, Bolaski got pissed off because of a few dings in his truck. That does not warrant anyone to become judge, jury, and hand down punishment by death. Bolaski knew Vinnie wasn't leaving that field that day and, if Bolaski never met Vinnie, what gives him the right to make that judgement? Something stinks in that judicial system. Anyone with half-a-brain that read the facts would know this was a premeditated act, and should be dealt with in that fashion. The Tamburello's had to wait 14 months for a manslaughter charge to come forward. Why, if the facts clearly state intent, did this even go to the Grand Jury? Why were these COWARDS allowed to change their story on that stand? And why didn't Sands call EVERY witness to this premeditated murder? NOT MANSLAUGHTER. It appears to me there's another COWARD in that county--and he happens to be handling this case. If I were a resident of Windsor County, I would want to know how the man that swore to uphold the law with due diligence, failed to protect my children and neighbors and allow this creep to walk the same streets as my kids.

I agree with you, Josh, whole-heartedly. I've been saying all along the intent was clear. The facts of this case screams premeditated murder, and yet, not only are these clowns walking the streets, but Bolaski is allowed--let me repeat myself--ALLOWED to commit another crime--a federal crime at that--and still walk the streets. How does that happen in a system sworn to uphold the law, and to serve and protect? I think it's clear what this particular system protects. That's not a badge I would care to honor.

10-27-2009 1:28:12 AM EST
And one more thing... with Bolaski not having a job since he murdered Vinnie and with him being busted recently for drug fraud... it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how he's been making his money. Put this murdering drug dealer behind bars.

10-27-2009 1:25:15 AM EST
"He came here acting like a tough guy because he was from "Boston" thinking everyone would back down to him. I guess he found the one person around here who wouldnt." What a bunch of bunk. If these guys were so tough and full of courage, how come none of them had the guts to face Vinnie one-on-one WITHOUT weapons? COWARDS are the people who look to gain an advantage by getting strength in numbers and using weapons. I knew Vinnie for quite awhile and he wasn't the kind of guy to pick fights, he was the guy to finish them if you screwed with him or somebody he cared about and that's exactly what happened here. These little punks knew dang well that one-on-one WITHOUT weapons that they would get smoked by Vinnie, clearly they were afraid to engage with him in a 1-on-1 situation or else they wouldn't have had to resort to getting their buddies to surround Vinnie. Vinnie was a tough guy with a good heart and it makes me sick knowing that his life was ended the way it was by cowards who didn't have the guts to handle their own personal business by themselves.

As an unbiased party who has followed this case just out of interest & the circumstances around it all, I think anybody with a grain of common sense can see that any claim of self defense should immediately be thrown out the window after the first shot was fired. I do not mean to offend the family, but from my understanding of the circumstances, I could see how perhaps the shot in the leg was justified if the situation was that out of hand... but everything that took place after that was completely undeserved. If you get shot in the leg with a rifle, I would think that'd be enough fighting for one day and the situation would be over, at least nobody's life would've been taken. You don't need to shoot the guy in the back and beat him with the gun for good measure just because you're mad your little pick-up truck got a few dings in it. I also don't think Vinnie would've resorted to bringing out a maul had this other guy he had a problem with not been a coward and showed up with a ton of his friends. I guess you could say they have themselves to blame for the situation escalating to that point because it seems as though Vinnie was ready for a 1-on-1 altercation and these guys clearly had other ideas from the start. Anybody who shoots a wounded man in the back, hits him with the gun afterwards, and is out committing prescription drug fraud during a time when they should be on their best behavior is evidently somebody who could benefit from a long stint of mental rehabilitation in a corrections facility. Also, the people that have posted on here disrespecting Vinnie's surviving family members need to grow up. I didn't know Vinnie or what kind of person he was, but he was obviously very loved by his parents, brothers, and sister. There's no need to rub salt in their wounds during their time of mourning over a situation that they had nothing to do with.

vin sr - your loss is tramendous and i cant imagine your pain. i hope you and your family will be able to get through this terrible time. Your decision to erase the verbal ridicule is an excellent one- that is exactly what should have been done and puts an end to what i asked people to (stop) doing- i get the impression you feel as though i favor the bolaskis because i think this situation could have been avoided- i understand several people approached the car, i realize they then returned to there own group afterwards EVERYONE made bad decisions in no way am i justifying murder or doubt vinnie was shot a second time trying to leave - but going back to what i origionaly said this terrible tragedy could have been avoided people feel the need to antagonize others or they feel the need to control a situation, create problems, and play judge and jury others use ignorance to manipulate others into there own sad pitiful agendas, and yet still are the so close minded people that nothing or no one exist but the ones in there own selfish worlds- when any one of these, or combination of these are put into effect we have complete collapse an unavoidable breakdown - its terrible to have this happen in any community- the simple fact that someone used this memorial justification web page to instigate with others sickens me- were we not asked and even given an option to leave a message on the message board? but to have shady characters hiding in the shadows just waiting for someone to write something they dont understand or like so they can pounce is disturbing- you say if this web page prevents another tragedy it did its job, well hopefully it does not create one - i think i was very clear about people respecting this site not everyone will have the same views or ideas . Everyone can go back and forth all day and night( it is possible) this shouldny have happened but everyone was there with weapons and it is obvious no one was going to avoid confrontation

Henny, You say this didn't need to happen. I agree but you are forgetting some very important aspects. The Bolaski's had nothing at all to do with the argument that started this whole tragedy. They admit they didn't even know Vinnie. It was none of their business yet they involved themselves and they called Vinnie down to fight. Testimony states Vinnie got out of the car with no weapon. Only when anywhere from 8-10 people advanced toward the car did this tragedy unfold. Yes Vinnie should not have continued, that is obvious and he paid the ultimate penalty. He paid with his life! You say if someone comes at you it's on. Well, Vinnie was shot in the back while trying to get away after already being shot once. Yes, it could have been avoided right from the beginning, if Bolaski didn't involve himself in something that was none of his business, if they did not call Vinnie to fight, if they did not take the guns to fight, if they did not go with a gang to the mother's house and assault an elderly lady, if they did not advance on the car with a a gang of men, if they had fought one-on-one as Vinnie had first thought. Yet you say if Vinnie just left. Well there were a lot of "if's" before Vinnie had that decision to make. But what could have or should have happened means nothing at this point. For whatever the decisions made, Vinnie is gone. Families lives are ruined. Made even worse by the actions of the Vermont judiciary. We are haunted by that question every day, and will suffer with it the rest of our lives, but it will not bring our son back. It will not bring justice. You are right about one thing, This must stop! And if this site helps one person see the futility in all of this and prevents another tragedy or injustice, and brings to light the wrong doings of the justice system, then this site will have served it's purpose.
