Does this sound like an accidental killing to you?
The voice of "A.E." (the logger who felled the
tree which killed Earth
First! nonviolent civil disobedience activist David Chain later the
day). "A.E." is yelling at another activist in the small group
in the forest with David:
AE: (Raging) Get the fuck out of here! You've got me hot enough now to
Activist: (Apologetically) We don't want to cause you any problems.
AE: (Angrily) You already have! So get out of here! You cock suckers!
AE: (Threateningly) Get outta here! Otherwise I'll fuckin', I'll make
I got a tree comin' this way!...
AE: (Raging) Ohhhhh, fuck! I wish I had my fuckin' pistol! I guess I'm
gonna just start packin' that motherfucker in here. 'Cause I can only
nice so fuckin' long. Go get my saw, I'm gonna start fallin' into this
