The protest a few days later by some Blacksburg High School students in support of the Indian mascot disturbed one senior (Colin Ward) who said it was unproductive and poorly organized. He also was concerned that "What happened was not a protest, it was an administration-sponsored day during which anyone could skip any class they wished and suffer no repercussions. The precedent that the administration set not only says that it is OK to skip whenever you want, but gives the impression that any rules of the school can be broken at will. This is not going to be good for the upcoming classes, or for the image of the school in the state, and this is a shame."

(SOT BRAUN)

"Hindsight is always 20/20."
Blake's lawyer says Blake has a permit to carry a handgun. And he had it on him Friday night because his wife was afraid for her life. Blake's lawyer says Bonnie Bakely had run cons where she would bilk old men out of their money. And Blake carried the gun to protect her from retribution.

(SOT HARLAND BRAUN/BLAKE'S ATTORNEY)

"When he sat down he had the gun in his waistband. He sat it in the seat and put his sweatshirt over the seat. And when he left, he just forgot."
When they returned to their car, Blake went back to the restaurant to get the gun. He says when he came back, his wife had been shot once in the head. That's when he ran to this man's house ..hysterical.

(SOT SEAN STANEK/WITNESS)

"He just needed help. His wife was hurt very badly, and to call the paramedics ..call 911."
Sean Stanek says he went to the car and tried to help Bakely as best he could.

"She was not talking. I did try to talk to her. She was not responding."
Blake and his wife married four months ago ..after blood tests proved he was the father of their 11-month old daughter. They did not live in the same house.
