Kentucky man arrested for shooting up homeowners meeting

Let's face it, homeowners associations can be frustrating at times.  You have to get everything approved by the board in order to keep the neighborhood looking nice.  Many people believe these boards are made up of busy bodies that have nothing better to do with their time.  Brendan Spaar pays to live in his community and is subject to the same charges. 

So this guy in Louisville, Kentucky decided to take his anger out on his homeowners association by bringing a gun to the meeting and opening fire, killing one and injuring another.  The whole dispute was over the height of his fence.  What really troubles me is that the guy pleaded not guilty to the crime.  If you aren't guilty then you believe that you did not commit the crime.  When you walk into a room with several witnesses and start shooting, I would think you are considered guilty.  Even more surprising is what his attorney said about his client in the bond hearing:
 Kahloon called him a "complex man" who "is not a danger to the community in the sense that this crime is not a random, violent crime."
I consider killing someone and injurying another to be a violent crime.  The deputies that arrested this man are sure to continue investigating the circumstances that lead up to this.  It will be interesting to see how it plays out.
