Re: Keep Off The Grass!

I've always said that when I'm an old man I want to sit on my front porch with a garden hose so that I can soak anyone who dares to touch my lawn, but this guy went a little overboard.

On a serious note, how could the jury not agree that this was pre-planned?
Quote:
Prosecutors alleged Martin had confronted the teen earlier in the day when he walked into Martin's yard on his way to a friend's house, then loaded his .410-gauge shotgun and waited more than three hours for him to return.

When the boy stepped on the lawn again, Martin fired at him twice, according to testimony. He then called police, telling a dispatcher: "I just killed a kid."

Martin was tried on aggravated murder but convicted of murder, a lesser count, because jurors because could not agree the killing was planned.
He waited 3 HOURS for the kid to return!!! Was that not enough time to say to himself "hey, maybe shooting him with a f'ing shotgun might be a bit much"?

I hope he becomes a prison bitch on his first day in the clink.

And he shot him TWICE! I could see if he only shot him once but not twice.

Re: Keep Off The Grass!

exactly what i was about to write AMD. 3 hours is long enough to decide whether you really want to do something.

I remember hearing about this story a long time ago too. I am g;lad he'll spend the rest of his life in jail. He better not get parole later in life.

Re: Keep Off The Grass!

I don't care if he gets paroled after about 10 years, so long as he is forced to move into a halfway house with a really shitty lawn.

Not a smart old man! All he needed to do was to fire a shot or two in the air and the kid never would have come back.

Good lesson for parents to teach their kids, though. If you want to disturb someone else's property then be ready to get your head blown off. This is the world we live in. Let the gun control debates rage on.

My heart does go out to the boy's parents, though. This is a terrible thing to happen to anybody and I hope the old guy suffers just as much as the victim's family.

Re: Keep Off The Grass!

I actually had this problem with a neighbor once. I use to walk through my backyard, and through his property to get to the bus stop quicker. One day this guys wife threatened me, and I stopped doing it.

Next day her husband confronts me on my bus stop and threatens to kick my ass. I am in 5th grade and this is scariest thing ever. I was worried for my life, and my parents finally straightened shit out, but still I wish we pressed charges.

The fucker moved out by the time I hit 7th grade. I kinda wanna kick his ass right now thinking about this all. Scared the shit outta me. It is freaking grass, I just dont get it.
