[quote="Anonymous"]For every person whose life he touched,he hurt two. He was nothing more than a pinched drug smuggler,turned rat,turned money launderer and master payoff artist. He was nothing more than a drunken druggie who ruled by intimidation and fear. He especially made it a point to hurt those who tried to get him to wake up to reality. The positive comments surely must be coming in from all those who had their hands in his pocket. I'm appalled with John Walshes affiliation. I will always feel for him and his family for the tragic loss of his son at the hands of a sick pervert. I ask you this Mr. Walsh,if your son had grown up to die from a drug overdose would you have focused on nabbing all the cartel leaders and the drug dealers of this world. You sold your name and your soul to another form of dirtbag I'll bet there are going to be those missing their additional never reported incomes. The magnitude of his political and governmental back room deals may never be known. I can only hope that all of those rich hippocrates still living with all the hidden payoff money fall like dominoes. I was told that he had a small memorial and was cremated. I can understand that because all of his supposed real friends probably wouldn't have shown. Had they done so it may have led way to many more scandals and pure media frenzy. I don't wish death upon anyone and don't know if there's the true existence of hell,but can only say that if the concept of fire exists in hell it will just free the Devil from starting another fire. All his greed and money created his own demise and would love to see all those who covered his butt, and you all know who you are, go down and end up in jail. There's without a doubt much more than can be said as I'm sure that people could tell....oh and how did the ex top cop/felon jailbird die a week earlier? Well at least his loved ones,if there were really any may get a chance to do right by others after they get done fighting over what money they can find. Whatever they can't the government will get because they know where it is. I'm sure his death brought quite the relief to many high powered people who I'm certain were concerned with his loose cannon behavior...and to those who wish his family peace rest assured that they may be capable of getting some now...and looking back at the comments from those who say he did more good in a week than anyone could do in a lifetime never knew the dark side. I hope all his cronies under investigation all around this country go down and tell all they know and act like the rat he was...Let those at the top of the ladder be exposed and start to fall from grace. My guess is that a wake of sudden heart attacks might be of epidemic proportion. The corruption starts from the lowest of people to those of powerful positions.[/quote]
Thanks for your post, it is evident in your writing that you actually knew Hank (which can't be said for the majority of the people who posted). Hank wasn't all that complex, he was essentially a child in a man's body. He was prone to temper tantrums and a savant-like inability to understand proper decorum when it came to social interaction. That being said, his outward projection of anger couldn't cover up the fact that he genuinely wanted to help other people. For instance, after the earthquake in Haiti he sent his plane to and from the D.R. many times. Sending doctors and supplies while bringing back injured Americans for hospitalization in Miami, all on his own dime (in a plane that cost somewhere around $4K/hr to fly!). Regardless of his methods, the results were commendable. I know for a fact that it wasn't a few weeks of flying back in the day, but I truly feel that he did everything he could (after he stopped) to balance his karma. His programs have caught an untold number of felons and perverts, making all of us safer. Funny as hell, tyrannical, generous, and brilliant. His premature death is a great loss, hopefully his works will continue to help others, save lives, and inspire new ideas. A big hug and my sincerest condolences to the three most important women in his life, I hope they find peace in the wake of such a tremendous loss.
