MARIETTA, Ga. - The mother of one of two boys charged with the brutual beating of a 94-year old man is speaking about the case.
At her son's hearing Friday morning in Cobb County, the mother of the 11-year old accused of attacking World War Two veteran Paul Smallwood says her son didn't do it.
The mother called her son a bystander watching.
Earlier during the hearing, attorneys for the two boys accused of beating Smallwood entered not guilty pleas.
The two boys -- 11 and 15-years old -- were in court earlier this week when the judge decided there was enough evidence to hold them. Thursday it was learned part of that evidence includes surveillance video of the two kids just before the elderly man was attacked.
"I hate to see anyone in trouble but anyone do something like that they need to be behind bars," said Paul Smallwood's nephew Ricky Scoggins.
The boys were arrested earlier this week. During a court appearance for the 15-year old Thursday, Cobb detectives said Mr. Smallwood was in his apartment when two boys broke in, beat him, and robbed him.
"Mr. Smallwood says someone struck him in the head with a rock. He fell, then they struck him again," said Cobb Police Officer D. L. Ponte, Jr.
Police say they have surveillance video from a Texaco station shortly before the attack showing the suspects riding bicycles heading toward the Smallwood's home.
Police searched the 15-year old's home and say they found a weapon in his room.
"During the execution of a search warrant we located a 410 gauge shot gun under the suspect's bed and mattress," said Ponte.
Police told the court, the teen who was expelled from Sprayberry High School for an incident earlier this year, bragged about detectives finding the gun.
"Sgt. Pluckett of our gang unit advised that this juvenile was bragging on myspace and Facebook that I had just taken a shotgun from under his mattress," said Ponte.
There was no further social networking for this teen since the judge ordered him to remain in juvenile detention rather than be released on house arrest saying he was a threat to the community and himself.
Smallwood is reported to be in stable condition
You stop it by arming the innocent and KILLING these animals when they attack you.
You stop it by voting NOT GUILTY when called for jury duty in cases where the good guy shoots the bad guy....
Funny how the government that has so much trouble paving roads, can for decades destroy cities, industries, communities, peoples. Why, if I didn’t know better, I would of thought of such consistent, decades long, cause and effect was some sort of plan.
You know who has an even worse/better welfare system than us?
Africa. Welfare has ruined Africa. Africans were once very prosperous, each citizen free and dignified. Then well meaning people decided to go help the African, even though he obviously didn’t need help because he was so prosperous, free, and dignified. And well fed. And then the African became corrupt, due to freebies, and their once admirable African family unit disintegrated. But man...before welfare...before...they were the envy of the World.
So there you have it. The true story of the nation of Africa and their mighty welfare system, that ruined them. Just like here.
Don't hold your breath unless by justice you mean that the two thugs will get minimal punishment, and that the old guy will have to be put in some kind of critical care facility for whatever remains of his life.
My personal take would be to handcuff them to a pole and give the old guy's relatives baseball bats and 20 minutes to do as they wanted with them.
You start by getting rid of the democrats and rinos who spent the last 50 years growing the problem. The you peel away the welfare payments a little bit at a time (or in bigger chunks if you can). IF this election can topple the Democrats then this is a step in the right direction. If not then we're doomed.
But when you watch television ads these days, its the strong, quiet, intelligent black man vs the oafish, stupid, childlike or criminal middle class white man. Or as in the Allstate commercials, the above mentioned black man vs the evil, here comes trouble white guy.
I make it a point to mentally register which products protray white men as stupid and avoid those products at all costs, including ADT.
Well if facts make someone a racist so be it.They think we are all racist anyway.Just some of us just dont give a sh!t what they think.
Wow. I'm racking my brain trying to think of one major company that isn't in the business of running ads portraying white males as stupid, oafish, wasteful, greedy pigs.
We are whistling past the graveyard with mass media and government not being honest about the nature of our violent social problems. This will not end well.
