It is not hard to imagine where John Foreman is coming from. He wants, vengeance, he wants revenge and he wants a closure – albeit in an extreme way – for the murder of his son. He wants to see his son’s killer Michael Woodmansee dead, and he is saying he will kill him if he released from prison.
Back in 1975, the 16-year-old Michael Woodmansee took the life of John Foreman’s five-year-old son Jason. Jason Foreman was considered “missing” until 1982 when Woodmansee attempted to snatch another young boy. The boy escaped and the police began to question Woodmansee and was found to be responsible for Jason Foreman disappearance and death.
Woodmansee was given a 40-year sentence, but now Woodmansee will be released twelve years earlier than previously planned. News that very much upset the Foreman family. Foreman says if Woodmansee is let out of prison that he will kill him “as aggressively and as painfully” as he killed his son. Saying, point blank, that “I do intend, if this man is released anywhere in my vicinity, or if I can find him after the fact, I do intend to kill this man,” Foreman said in a radio interview.
Could you relate to his quest for vengeance or should he respect the choices of the prison system and their option to release Woodmansee early?
