  1. Anne Flash pointed a loaded gun at my little brother. If it accidentally went off, it doesn’t matter. She made a childish DECISION to point a gun at him that ended his life. It upsets me that the DA seems to be dragging her feet in indicting her and putting her behind bars. Anne Flash acts like it was an “accident” (her actual words in a text to me), but handguns don’t “accidentally” get pointed at humans. Gun safety rule #1 “Never point the gun at anything you don’t intend to destroy.” Justice for Michael Flash!
