They are very upset." Today, Layrisson's 20-person department is worried. "Not only are they concerned about violent criminals but a SWAT team behind their back." "We welcome any law enforce- ment agency that wants to help fight crime in Ponchatoula," said the chief in an interview with The Times Tuesday. Today, the Louisiana State Police have the case. "I'm very confident that they are very good investigators," he said. Once the State Police complete their case, it will be forwarded to the District Attorney and Sheriff's Office for review. ### Steve Reed, a minister and Ponchatoula business owner, has good things to say about Booby Meyn. "I fished with him beginning 20 years ago and saw him just a few days ago. He al- ways knew I was a minister. He never used bad language in front of me and he would not al- low others to do so either." Reed recalled: "He loved to fish. He loved his kids. He had some problems. He was always respectful of me." "There's a big issue going on between the sheriff's office and the Ponchatoula Police Depart- ment," Reed said. "I'm hoping the State Police get to the bot- tom of it." Reed is an ex-police officer in Louisiana and Texas. Reed said he served many years in law enforcement and is famil- iar with undercover operations. "My understanding is they cleared the whole house except for one room. They asked Booby to come out. I understand they knocked him down. Booby got up and was shot in the head and shoulder. Why they did not try to talk the man out, I don't know. Nobody knows but the of- ricer that was there." The sheriffs office says Meyn opened fire as they served a search warrant at his Landers Drive home. Overall, "the sherifffs task force does a fine job," said Reed. "They do all that they can. I do feel they could have got him out of there alive. They could have talked him out." Was an undercover officer inside Meyn's home when the sheriff's Special Response Team converged around 6 a.m.? Chief Layrisson can't say because it is an open investiga- tion. His officers had been work- ing the Meyn case for about a month before the fatal shooting. These details may emerge when the State Police complete their own investigation. Reed wondered how a sher- iffs deputy could see that Booby Meyn had a .45 automatic that was cocked. "It's 6 o'clock in the morning. It's dark. I have been in that house at noon. It's dark even then," Reed said. "There's no way they could see if the gun was cocked," he said. "In that split one-hundredth of a second coming in, you can't tell if it's cocked." As for the anonymous critical comments posted about Meyn on the newspaper Website 2thead- vocate.com, Reed said: "People on the Web have no sensitivity. "I've never known him to be violent. I've never seen him strike anybody, shove anybody," said Reed. Others remember Booby as a grade school bully. "When I was a kid, I was wait- ing in line at the Ponchatoula pool to go swimming. Somebody came up and hit me in the face for no reason. It was Booby," re- called a Springfield man who asked to remain anonymous.

DEATHS ln_O_m00.mmm00 MYRA LOUISE KUHN RAMSEY Myra Louise Kuhn Ramsey, 71, Ponchatoula, Louisiana, died Thursday, September 2, 2010, at Richard Murphy Hospice House in Hammond.

She is also preceded in death by her parents, Eton Percy Kuhn and Mildred Louise McDaniel Kuhn; sister, Edith Margaret Kuhn White and her brother, Robert "Bobby" Lester Kuhn. Myra Ramsey was a wonder- ful mother, doting grandmother, devoted sister, and cherished friend to many. She was the Worthy Grand Matron of the Order of the East- ern Star for the State of Loui- siana. She also served as the past Matron of the Broadmoor Chapter in Shreveport, Loui- siana, with the OES #233 and Nova Stella #36 of Ponchatoula. Surviving her are: her son, Loyd Wade Ramsey, Jr., and her daughter-in-law, Sandra K. Ramsey; her treasured grand- daughter, Hunter Tyler Ramsey; her five brothers and sisters-in- law: Percy F. and Shirley Kuhn; Thomas and Beth Kuhn; Al- bert and Kathryn Kuhn; James Edward and Cheryl Kuhn; and Marion Paul and Brenda Kuhn; her sister and brother- in-law Katherine Kuhn Bill- ings and Arthur Billings; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Box 740412, New Orleans, Louisiana 70174-0412; or Richard Mur- phy HoSpice, 1109 S. Chestnut, Hammond, Louisiana 70403. I I I I I I said: "Whatever he was do- ing, he wasn't right with God. I'm sick about that. I don't like to see anybody dead. If you're wrong, you're wrong. You do the crime, you do the time." Reed remembers the gener- ous side of Booby Meyn, who was a grade A welder. Meyn of- fered to help Reed by bringing in a mechanic friend to fix a til- ler if Reed would clear some de- bris around Booby's home. "I saw him Tuesday before the shooting. I asked how he was doing. He said: 'fine.' "Booby said 'Come in, sit down and drink some coffee.' He wanted to talk about his dad. His dad was a fine man," said Reed. Reed, in Ponchatoula 17 years and a business owner, has a singing ministry. "I sing for God where He opens doors." As for Booby Meyn, "a lot of people did not know his good qualities."
