Message Subject I live in in Newtown, CT

Sorry, but I'm a writer. I am highly suspicious of the use of "was" in OP's story. Newton, CT is a small town but a small town filled with middle to upper-middle class folk. Surely they know the difference between "We 'were' doing this and that" and "We 'was' doing this and that".
This is a highly dramatized story.

AND I'm NOT a shill! I just don't want the facts of this story getting muddled with silly BS.

You might not be a shill, but you are quite ignorant on many counts.

Your impression of what type of person exists in the "middle class" in America is grossly misinformed. As well as your impression of the quality of education in America's schools over the last 20 year, the standards for high school graduation, and the effect of diet and monotonous blue collar low wage work on one's ability to articulate thought to paper for anyone not used to writing.

The past tense of the verb "be" is various, and you would be surprised at how many people use "was" in "middle class" America.

What do you write? Tour guides for surfers?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33005571

In all honesty I thought the use of "was" is strange because the rest of what was written is spelled correctly and with good punctuation so none of it makes any sense. This is why I would be suspicious.

We all know the critical thinking ability of the average American is in deep decline.
