PAT LAMOUREUX - One episode in a person's life, does not define the person.

From the Petition website - WELL SAID!!!!! 7:20 pm PST, Feb 23, Joy S., Ohio

JOY S. from Ohio signed the petition today and said:

Former NBA star Jayson Williams was sentenced to 5 yrs prison  (on February 23, 2010) with a minimum term of 18 months in prison following the acceptance of his guilty plea in the 2002 shooting death of his limo driver, Costas Christofi.

Williams has been out of jail since the night of the shooting in 2002.

No time in jail.

He has a long history of violent crimes.

He kills a man and more than likely will only serve 18 months and be freed.

Pat has been in jail now since Sept 2008.

No trial.

No bail.

Pat killed no one.

Pat had no previous law violations.

But the charges against Pat could put him behind bars for life?

Pat has PTSD which caused his legal problems.

Williams has no such illness which led to his legal problems.

Pat fought for his country.

All Williams ever fought for (legally) was a rebound or loose ball.

The only justice that can be served is for Pat to be granted time served and mandated mental health care.

(I thank you for your comments and in-sight Joy!  As a reminder, by the time Pat Lamoureux's trial starts, July 20th 2010, he will have been incarcerated for 22 months.  - Sue Lamoureux)

Nevada Soldier With PTSD Prescribed 14 Drugs Before Police Shootout

Nevada Soldier With PTSD Prescribed 14 Drugs Before Police Shootout

Tim King (LAS VEGAS, Nv.)

"Well Sue, for what it is worth, I greatly respect your courage through all of this. I don't know how much more of a challenge you could be faced with, but I do know that law enforcement in the backwaters of Nevada can be shabby."  Tim King -

Sue Lamoureux's dedication to her husband Pat, an Iraq combat veteran incarcerated for a shooting that happened Sept. 19, 2008, in Pahrump, Nevada, is more than steadfast. He has been locked down since that fateful night.

Pat survived really awful circumstances while serving in Iraq. He's haunted by the memory of a girl in her early teens who blew herself up near his heavy equipment transport truck. He said she, "came out of nowhere."

He talked about a firefight near the airport in Baghdad. Staff Sergeant Robert J. Brown, Lamoureux's convoy commander on the majority of his missions, talked about how the convoys were shot at "day and night." "If you stopped, you got shot. We were sitting ducks outside of that wall, wire, perimeter or sand berm."

Brown said, "When Pat says what happened at the airport, that happened." Any of us can only imagine. I don't know very much about Iraq, but I have been to that airport and it isn't in an extremely secure part of the city. I can only imagine how horrific the circumstances were that this Nevada soldier survived[1].

Pat also talked about an old man with a donkey, who would not stop when soldiers ordered him to and was shot. Sue told a reporter that, "To this day Pat believes the old man may have been deaf, and the image of him haunts Pat."

These stories leave behind many important, unanswered questions. These soldiers were put through things that no human being can easily withstand. Pat was eventually evacuated for a respiratory disorder. Just after that, one of his friends and fellow soldiers from Las Vegas was killed when his truck was struck, as he was changing a tire on his military vehicle in Kuwait.

Staff Sgt. Cameron Sarno was in the same Army Reserve group, the Las Vegas-based 257th "Rolling Thunder" Transportation Company.

Sue Lamoureux told the Las Vegas Review Journal, "That night before things spiraled out of control, Pat was screaming, 'Sarno' at me. I told him there wasn't anything about that situation that was his fault."

She added that he screamed again. "Sarno, you don't know.... I could have kept him from dying."

This is what he was talking about before things spun out of control that night at Terrible's Lakeside RV Park and Casino in Pahrump, Nevada.
