Robert LaBarre's Remorse

"I wish it was me who died, not her."

"It eats me up that you think I'm this malicious person."

"By you hating me you're only hurting yourself, you're not hurting me."

Contrary to what Bill Villa has often claimed, the person who killed his daughter is sorry. Above you can see three of the comments that LaBarre made at the time of his sentencing. He was sentenced to between 5 1/2 to 12 years in state prison, nearly double the standard sentence for that type of offense. In addition, LaBarre was ordered to pay $50,947 for funeral and medical costs, plus $25,200 in fines.

But that's not enough for Villa. He wants LaBarre to suffer even more. And if you're not with him, you're against him.

Villa's recollection, colored by the death of his daughter, is seriously flawed. And young Mr. LaBarre is right. By hating him, Villa has only hurt himself.

open letter to bill and angie villa,
i'm not sure why you keep dragging me into this confrontation. bill apologized publicly to me for what he referred to as "counter-attacking", a method he devised to illustrate what you felt was what bernie was doing to you. your method consisted of attacking me on blogs, the morning call forum, and private emails. obviously there was no sincerity in that apology. my recent crime has been "understanding" why the previous" bill and troll blog" was created, i believe my full statement said something like , "as a recent HIGHJACK victim i understand why an alternative site was created." you chosen to once again dwell only on those words which suit your purpose. once again i state i am not part of this or the previous blog. angie, i address this to both of you because your blog is moderated, yet you allowed comments which link me with this confrontation. let me be clear, i would never refer to your loss, or the subsequent legalities concerning it. you both became agitated with me because i chose to remain neutral in your argument about anonymous comments and blogger tuesday. bill's highjacking of comment sections of various blogs has escalated into the current discussion of a crime and trial which i have never commented on, or would I. yet, your snarks against me continue.

This post is really repulsive, BOH. Really the whole blog is.

Bernie O'Hare said...

I completely agree. That's more or less the point. Trolls are repulsive people and, make no mistake, Villa is a troll.

His hatred of The Morning Call, Jim Martin and Robert LaBarre is flawed but understandable, but that is no justification for his irrational behavior and his attempt to impose it on everyone else.

In recent weeks, he has hijacked blogs posted by me, MM, NLVLogic and Michael Donovan. He also posts anonymously and pseudonymously to create the false appearance that there actually is some support for his irrational behavior. He completely destroys comment threads on unrelated topics.

But worse than hijacking, he has attempted to bully other bloggers into seeing things his way. If we're not with him, we're against him, he says. He has challenged me to fistfights, told MM to cross to the other side of the street MM sees him and has threatened to let Najarian have it with "both barrels." He has become a menacing presence. He has continued to send emails to AJ after being asked, repeatedly, to stop.

In short, he is a cyber bully.

I am casting some sunshine on this cyber bully. And part of that is looking at the circumstances surrounding the prosecution of the person responsible for his daughter's death. Did DA Martin go easy? Did the MC try to suppress the truth? Was the person driving that car really unapologetic, as Villa has maintained in comment after comment? It appears that the rational answer to all of these questions is NO.

Villa's behavior is inexcusable. He has gone too far.

Hence, this blog.

villa, it's true that after highjacking my blog your comments are no longer welcome, both the ones you submit under your own name and those you submit under the name of other people. but in fairness, you should acknowledge the fact that you have asked me not to comment on your blog already weeks ago. you and angie have kept your blog "moderated", and you have continued the aggressive behavior toward me that you recently apologized for, including threatening emails. your comment today on lehigh valley somebody identifying me as mayoral hopeful, o'hare as o'mcall etc. is designed to antagonize. You want to be an aggressor, then claim your a victim. in regard to highjacking, you claimed you would address your grievances on your blog after highjacking my comment board, but then angie said she will only write about what she chooses. you claim your comments are deleted elsewhere, but then moderate your blog. Bernie O'Hare is very blunt about your behavior, i personally will not address your loss, but will confirm you have tried to bully me. i know at least two other bloggers who are victims of yours. none of us can fathom your loss or feel your pain, but i will not let that intimate me into silence about your behavior toward me and others.

villa, you think because kranzley or someone else didn't answer some question you asked, you were justified to highjack bernie's blog, and then go on to insult me, donovan and aj because we don't agree with you? and then because we didn't "support" you, you were justified to attack us? maybe you have the "id" issue? you seem to justify using everybody and everything as a tool in your vendetta against martin and the morning call.

Bernie O'Hare said...

This blog has nothing to do with quashing dissent or some such other baloney. I encourage a wide range of views on my blog. I discourage personal attacks and off topic remarks. Villa does both, insulting and threatening readers and me in the process.

The purpose of this blog, which most certainly is repulsive, is to confront trolls like Villa. His main point is that Jim Martin and the MC conspired with Att'y LaBarre to go easy on his son. But as I look at the cold record of that matter, facts are not bearing Villa out.

Villa prefers to mislead people and thinks nothing of posting anonymously or under weird sock puppets. In addition to this deceitful behavior, what he posts is often dishonest or just crazy. For example, he actually thinks deputy sheriffs were ready to whack him at a recent meeting of Lehigh County Commr's. He's nutz.

Worse than that, he has increasingly become a menacing figure. He has threatened MM, Najarian and me. In Najarian's case, it's really bizarre. He also bombards AJ with incessant emails despite repeated requests that he stop.

He is a cyber bully.

Notice the bait and switch he pulls on MM. He refuses to address MM's points about being bullied. He ignores MM's complaint that he has been told his comments are no longer welcome at LVSomebody. In fact, Villa the free speech advocate has enabled blog moderation at that site. That's bc when I started deleting his detritus from my blog, I took it and posted it there.

Villa actually deleted his own comments. How's that for healthy dissent!

Oh yeah, his wife also sent me an email weeks ago telling me never to comment there again.

Note his obsession with winning and having the last word. What Villa fails to realize is that he has already lost. His numerous comments to the blog postings here only demonstrate how unhinged this guy has become. He looks like what he is - a lunatic rolling around on the floor, foaming at the mouth.

I was forced to disable comments on one blog that you hijacked. And nothing you post, whether it is under your own name or anonymously or as a sock puppet, will ever be welcome at my blog. I will take that trash and dump it on your blog so you can delete your own comments again. You are a troll with one agenda and don't care who you step on or hurt to get what you want.

You're nutz.

And a bully.

michael molovinsky said...

bill villa, as i had said before when you were highjacking my comment section, why don't you say everything you want about martin and the morning call on lehigh valley somebody? or create another blog for that explicit purpose. why highjack other people's blogs and then complain about being deleted?

You "guys" are lucky I've restrained myself to mere threatening. You all deserve the pummeling of your lives.

You can't engage in any democratically healthy dissent when you're wearing a straightjacket and sitting in a padded cell.

bill villa, on your blog, Lehigh Valley Somebody, today you tell readers about the touching memorial to your daughter Sheena at West Park.
then you comment; "And don't miss Bernie O'Hare's tribute to me, Sheena's Dad, it's a new blog Bernie lovingly calls "The Troll Parade" ... "
bill, your loss was profound. this current "blog war" developed because of your assertion that bernie "muzzled" your questions to Kranzley of the Morning Call about Blogger Tuesday at his site. You then became agitated with me, donovan and aj because we wouldn't subscribe to your ultimatums. the inference that any of us don't respect your memory of your loving daughter is unfair.

Michael,

Not just Bill Villa. His Stepford wife, Angie, claims this blog is the work of a "sadist" whose goal is "to besmirch the memory of Sheena Villa."

Actually, Bill's already done that, over and over.

Bill's right and everyone else is part of a conspiracy to silence him. Jim Martin, Glenn Kranzley, Joe Owens, Bill White, Paul Carpenter, John Micek, Michael Molovinsky, AJ Cordi (who keeps asking to be left alone), Dave Najarian and I have supposedly colluded to supress the truth.

There's another possibility here. Villa is nutz. And he bullies those who won't drink his kool-aid.

What I've done is publish a blog that, most recently, tends to show that Robert LaBarre is very remorseful. But because that view is inconsistent with Villa's propaganda over the last two years, they are freaking out, trying to suppress my healthy dissent.

Angie Villa has posted a comment, on her blog, calling LaBarre a "remorseless, spoiled brat drunk." What's more, she's enabled comment moderation - again - to muzzle any other point of view.

We're either with them or against them.

Who's the neocon?

Captain Beefheart said...

O'Hare. This blog is disgusting.

You openly supported these people and now belch that everything they said (and you endorsed on your own blog) was a lie?

Captain Beefheart said...

your comment today on lehigh valley somebody identifying me as mayoral hopeful, o'hare as o'mcall etc. is designed to antagonize.

Aren't you a mayoral hopeful, Molovinsky? What the hell is the problem?

but will confirm you have tried to bully me

Oh, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I am being bullied. Geez, you fools sound like 12 year olds with O'Hare being the lead moron.

captain beefheart said...

the inference that any of us don't respect your memory of your loving daughter is unfair.

Sorry Molovinsky. Your participation in this pathetic blog is proof that you disrespect the Villas loss. Your participation makes you no different than the creator, O'Hare. All of you are in this together now.
