US Marshal Shoots Defendant in Federal Court

A U.S. marshal shot and critically wounded a defendant on Monday in a new federal courthouse after the man rushed the witness stand with a pen at his trial in Salt Lake City, authorities said.

Defendant Siale Angilau was hospitalized with at least one chest wound, FBI spokesman Mark Dressen said. The witness wasn't hurt.

Angilau was one of 17 people named in a 29-count racketeering indictment filed in 2008 accusing gang members of conspiracy, assault, robbery and weapons offenses.

I know this will shock my fellow FReepers, but the defendant was described by the NY Daily News as a "gangbanger."

Was the US Marshal’s shooting “Justified” because his name is Rayland Givens?

Eh. Raylan Givens would have but three or four rounds through him before he cleared the desk and called the shooting "Justified".

in a new federal courthouse

Of course it's a brand new courthouse...Bet they only cost 30 million to build.

With the amount of tax payers who will be facing new concocted federal charges, we need lots of new government court houses.

This dirtball is allegedly a member of the “Tongan Crips”.

For some strange reason the LDS church decided to import a whole slew of converts from Tonga and Samoa to Salt Lake City a few years ago.

That’s not working out too well.

The bad guy pulled a pen and posed a threat to a Federal judge and was shot for doing so, no problem. But if the same thing happened to a black man on one of our major city streets the cop would be charged with either manslaughter or murder.....go figure.

Obviously the Marshal’s service does not get enough range time as the guy lived.

Never pick a fight with an agency that buys bullets by the billion. Unless you have militia on your side.

I believe he was also an aspiring "rap artist" who was just starting to "get his life together."

And now this...

Pretrial proceedings can go on for a very long time. Fro an inside view from the standpoint of a material witness who agreed to cooperate with the gov. to get a lighter sentence, read Piper Kernan's Orange is the New Back. Piper was informed on by an accomplice in a drug ring for whom she had run cash and spent five years in negotiations before finally doing 15 months on a reduced sentence. At the end of her sentence she was faintly called to testify in the trial of one of the leaders of the conspiracy.
