Under the section "indicted for murder" you'll find " arthur wayne blood, pendleton, ore., march. convicted of murder." But that isn't true. Blood has been indicted and charged on attempted murder and a whole lot more. Hhis trial is coming up this month. He has not been convicted of anything.

You can see the charges against him here: http://www.co.umatilla.or.us/deptwebs/jail/roster/Blood_Arthur_Wayne_.htm

lighten up. obviously this guy is not a journalist

it seems the humor of the whole post was lost on you. . .do you not see the common thread?

perhaps he should have title this post "momma, don't give your kids middle names like wayne or they'll grow up to be criminals", but then the humor would have been lost in the details.

if you are a family member of mister arthur wayne blood of pendleton, or, my apologies; and if you are a family member of one of his victims or attempted victims, i wish you all the best.
