The Death of David Chain

Does this sound like an accidental killing to you?

The voice of A.E. Ammons (the logger who felled the tree which killed Earth First! nonviolent civil disobedience activist David Chain later the same day). "A.E." is yelling at another activist in the small group protesting in the forest with David:

AE: (Raging) Get the fuck out of here! You've got me hot enough now to fuck!

Activist: (Apologetically) We don't want to cause you any problems.

AE: (Angrily) You already have! So get out of here! You cock suckers! I mean it!

[snip]

AE: (Threateningly) Get outta here! Otherwise I'll fuckin', I'll make sure I got a tree comin' this way!...

AE: (Raging) Ohhhhh, fuck! I wish I had my fuckin' pistol! I guess I'm gonna just start packin' that motherfucker in here. 'Cause I can only be nice so fuckin' long. Go get my saw, I'm gonna start fallin' into this fuckin' draw!
