Local Attorney Shares Thoughts For The Community On Recent Tragedies

FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — As an entire community grapples with recent tragedies and attempts to understand how, and why, and how it moves forward, local attorney Tim Mahoney says in a small town like this, when something like that happens, it causes everybody to start having a conversation.

That conversation turns to questions, he says. Questions that often end with answers of who’s to blame.  It’s this person’s fault or that person, it’s the system, the judge, it’s guns, it’s not enough guns, it’s too many guns, it’s all of these different things.

Mahoney says as a community we should ask questions like that. We shouldn’t just say “oh well, you know sometimes people are going to do crazy things and there’s nothing you can do about it”.  He says we should be asking questions but instead of asking why, why did this happen, maybe as a community we ask what can we learn from this.

In the video below Mahoney shares his thoughts on the recent tragic events.

    When my husband died from a gun, I went to attorney Mahoney. He proceded to not listen and directed me to the door stating he wouldn’t help me. I went through very difficult things wth no help from him.
