  • Evil bastard Paul Dennis Reid gets off easy

    I don't know how I missed this last week.

    Mass murderer Paul Dennis Reid dies on death row

    Victim's mother: 'It wasn't supposed to happen that way'

    CLARKSVILLE, TENN. — Paul Dennis Reid Jr., on death row for seven Middle Tennessee murders including two in Clarksville, died Friday in a hospital bed at age 55.

    He was pronounced dead at 5:55 p.m. at Metro General Hospital in Nashville, according to the Tennessee Department of Corrections. The cause of death was not provided.


    Black and other families of the victims heard a rumor last weekend that Reid had been hospitalized in critical condition.

    Department of Corrections officials said Monday they could not confirm to the media or the victims’ families whether Reid was hospitalized or even ill because of federal laws that protect medical privacy, including for prison inmates.

    Friday night, after again hearing the news first from reporters, Black was furious.

    “They assured us that if he were to die, they would notify the families first.

    “I heard it like everybody else,” Black said at 7:55 p.m., an hour after TDOC sent a media notification, and about two hours after the news broke.

    “I’m still waiting for the phone call,” she said.
    Reid's heinous crime spree.

    A lot of people around here still hold some blame to the Texas parole system for being far too lax at the time. Details on how Reid's parole for shooting up a restaurant in Houston have left a lot of people around here very angry. Had Reid not been paroled, had he been more closely monitored than having to send a freaking post card to his P.O. once a year, he likely would not have been able to come to Nashville in the first place.

    Not a day goes by that I don't think about what this personification of evil did. I drive past the McDonald's in Hermitage and the Captain D's in Donelson every day. No one who lived in Nashville at the time can go past either of these without thinking about the evil that Reid perpetuated there.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now
