|“||Davidson was our leader, no question from the very beginning, he was the man for the job. He could think on his feet--make quick decisions, he really was an asset, and I have no doubt in my mind that he kept me alive in those early days. But then things changed... He didn't rape those women... not exactly... but he knew what he was doing. He was in a position to keep them safe... offer them more protection... or none at all. What choice did they have? How could they reject his advances?... I only learned of his actions after the fact... not until after Beth killed herself. He was generally up to no good, forcing people into jobs they didn't want, putting others in danger instead of himself. It was clear to me that he had to go. He was too much of a hindrance to our continued way of life. He had to go. In the end, I couldn't bring myself to kill him... and I didn't wan't anyone else to know what had happened. I'd already burnt a walker body to double for Davidson... The fence was completed by that point--I got him on the other side of it and told him he was no longer welcome. That he had to go. Told him I'd shoot him if he tried to follow me back in, although I didn't think I would. Let's not split hairs here, though... I left that man to die, and die he surely did. I love this community, Rick. Davidson became a problem within it... and so I murdered him.||„|
