    Hey UK folks, what's going with this story? was it an unbelieving mate that attacked and elder or something?

    Doesn't seem to be any more information yet. Multiple stab wounds, 55 year old man arrested nearby for murder.

    There is an article online in the local paper here...

    One man dead at the scene. Police arrest another man found nearby and are in the process of piecing together the circumstances.

    Wow this could be real bad publicity for the Watchtower Corporation if it had anything to do with shunning policies. or worse if it had to do with child molestation.

    Think of all the people that know everything is bull shit but still have to attend because of the love they have for their members and who try not to say anything that might give them away. Suppose some body of elders homed in one of these types and got them DF'd and the person was so mad they lost it.

    Could happen as the GB get more and more radical in their cruelty by disfellowshipping every lukewarm JW coming to meetings, and more and more people are finding out the TATT.

    naaa ....... it was a fight about who was going to hold the microphone at the meeting.

    To anyone imagining this will be bad for the WTS ...

    If it does turn out to be a "disgruntled ex member" - why do you thing that will make them (the WTS) look bad?

    When some fired employee returns to work and shoots their ex-colleagues, do you think "well, they must have mistreated him and giving him legitimate cause to do this"? No, you think "nutter". The news media is incapable of covering many stories with the nuance and detail to explain the "why" behind many things so I don't see any reason to have high hopes that this will be different if it does turn out to be something todo with WTS abuse.

    I can't think of many legitimate reasons that someone should be stabbed to death other than if they were abusing a child (in which case, stab away ... I hope I get called for jury duty so I can declare it an unknowable mystery).
