This is a great article from Boston Magazine that goes over the entire Marshfield saga in great detail. When you get a chance read the entire article to get a look into the mind of Joseph Nee.
I found it interesting that the night Joe Nee showed up at the Kerns’ house this is what happened…
Two days after Joe Nee showed up at the Kernses’ door seeking shelter on the night of May 6, Ben Kerns called the Nee home. He says Joe’s mother told him Joe had punched his father and that Joe was the abusive one. “We don’t want him back,” Ben quotes her as saying. “If you don’t want him, throw him out on the street.” Tom Nee declined to be interviewed for this story.
Yet Tom Nee keeps saying…
Tom Nee told reporters, “There was no Columbine because my son had courage and conviction to seek out a police officer.”
At one point you throw him out of your house and say you don’t want him back then you say he had courage and conviction. It sounds like to me that a cop is refusing to admit that his son might have broken the law. But that’s just my opinion.
I still have yet to receive any comments or e-mails in defense of Joseph Nee, and this article will probably make it harder for anyone to do so.
