Kids do stupid things...but these kids weren't physically threatening anyone....
That apparently isn't what the jury believed:
Scott said when he told the three people he had called the police, two of them stopped, but the third Mr. Cervini ran toward him.
Scott testified he heard Mr. Cervini say: Ill get you or Ill get him, and thats when Scott said he had a gun. Thats when he fired his gun, Scott said.
Scott said he went back to his house and told girlfriend to call 911 again, and checked on Mr. Cervini twice and didnt see him moving. Then a police officer showed up, drew his gun and told Scott to put his hands in the air.
I’m curious, what do you think the police should have done if they did respond, did catch the kids in the act, and the kids resisted? What if it was a single policeman and the kids moved on him in a threatening way? Every person should have the same rights and perview as the police when it comes to protecting their own property.
There should be no law that requires people to standby while their possessions are taken from them and their property destroyed. It isn’t civilized.
yes, we should all run and hide from the bad guys stealing from us. Next they’ll be in our homes stealing from us and then its us that wind up dead instead of the thief....
It would have been better if it were a report of *3* dead criminals, shot dead in the act.
Hmmmm....Apparently you have some information that the jury did not have...Maybe you ought to have gone to the prosecutor with said evidence and prevented this (in your mind) miscarriage of justice..
In the same spirit of the key knowledge that you have, I KNOW that these kids were going to beat this man to death, mutilate his body and then burn down his house with his wife and kids inside.../sarc
What a Nation of wimps this has become!
