Robert Woodward, "Woody", our dearly beloved friend, entered a church on December 2 2001, and pleaded to the congregation to give him asylum, explaining that authorities sought to torture and kill him. At one point he took out a pocket knife and threatened himself in an attempt to dissuade the congregation from leaving, pleading that he needed witnesses. Within 15 minutes police entered the sanctuary and almost immediately opened fire. Two officers fired seven 40 caliber rounds at Wood.Woody died less than four hours later of his wounds.
