Poor Mr.Bird. He should have taken the “Clint Eastwood-GranTorino” approach when he came out on his lawn to protest.But since he didn’t,these punkasses should get the death penalty.
And as typical these kids’ parents were MIA.
It’s Dallas, and he doesn’t have a gun?
That's how it starts and that should be a clear warning to the parents and the authorities.
Remember the first thing Mayor Rudy did when he decided it was time to clean up The Big Apple? He went after the small things, by cutting the future law breaker at the beginning of the chain instead of the other end he had remarkable success.
These kids are everywhere these days. Their parents buy them new cars while they are still high school students, they have cell phones, Ipods, laptops, etc. They have everything, except the attention of their parents to know where they are are with whom they are doing whatever at a time when high school kids should not be on the street.
It truly saddens me that we will spend thousand and thousands of dollars a year to keep these punks incarcerated for a length of time and when they are turned loose on the rest of us they will be worse than they are today.
Our whole system is broken. We are increasingly unable to protect the innocent or punish the guilty.
He's a better man than me. I would've confronted them only if armed and wouldn't have hesitated to shoot if they were trying to kill me. Poor guy.
In my neighborhood, I used to have problems with a neighbor behind us playing extraordinarily loud music. Every time he did it, I'd call the cops, and they'd shut him down.
Hmm, a gang beat-down that results in death... I don’t know the Texas Criminal Code that well, but I recall seeing something about those circumstances adding up to an “aggravated” crime, the same as using a gun or knife. It may swing these minors over the line to be tried as adults, too.
An American version of “A Clockwork Orange.”
Why would anyone confront youths without a gun? Just insane. Did he value his own safety so little?
