Dear Lord, before we
eat this meal, we ask forgiveness for our sins, especially Boyd, who
blew up a black church with a rocket launcher, and afterwards, he shot
his associate, Jared Hale, in the back of the head out on Tates Creek
Let the image of Jared’s brain matter on that windshield not dampen our
appetites, but may the knowledge of Boyds past sins help guide these
men. May this food provide them with all the nourishment they need.
But if it does not, may they find comfort in knowing that the United
States marshals service is offering $50,000 to any individual providing
information that’ll put Boyd back in prison.
Cash or check.
We can make it out to them or… to Jesus… whoever they want.
In Your name, we pray.
“I got a young kid here, decorated sniper in Iraq War, Army Ranger, I don’t know how many kills he had. Always lookin’ to kill somebody else. Probably got PTSD. Probably an alcoholic. Not a matter if that powder keg is gonna blow but when. I got a lady marshall here. Brought in two of the top fifteen fugitives to this office, but she’s always tryin’ to prove herself. I thought she was gonna be the one that would take this office over when I got ready to retire, but now she’s left her husband so it’s gonna be fun to monitor her emotional state over the next year, see if she can keep it together. Then I got a local boy, born in Harlan county, been investigated so many times internal affairs has got him on speed dial. Father’s in prison for murderin’ two people, including a state trooper, and his daddy killed somebody else last night in prison and I get to be the one to tell him about it!”
