Yep, you read that right. In case you didn't ever hear, a Asheville, NC fireman, shot a cyclist in the head for riding with his son and wife on a "busy" road.
Well, apparently, in North Carolina, it is ok for public servant to shoot someone in the head, and say "only fired a warning shot and didn't intend to hurt Alan Ray Simons".
Charles Diez, shot someone in the head, for having an opinion, and only gets 4 MONTHS!!!!!!!!. You have to be fucking kidding me!
Simons, had this to say
“We were out for an enjoyable ride, minding our own business,” Simons said. “At any point, he could have left.
“When I got to his door, the gun was pointing at my chest. I turned to walk away, (and) the gun went off. He chose to pull the trigger.”
I call bullshit. This is bullshit. According to this article, if you provide for your family, have 30+ supporters in the court room, have had good job security and someone to say, “He's a hard-working, decent man who used terrible judgment,” Stewart said. “He accepts responsibility for his actions. I think he is sincerely remorseful”, then you can basically, get away with attempted murder.
What kills me about this whole thing, besides this douche not getting more of a harsher sentence, is the fact that witnesses, called the cops, and the cops found this dick, at his house. So, this guy, shoots someone in the head, and then just drives home, and only get four months of jail time? Not only that, but the original charge was dropped for a lesser charge.
This judge can go and choke on a jar of dicks, as far as I'm concerned.
