Whataboutism **dammnit, Taco beat me to the punch
You can think that it doesn't matter but I think it's important in a case like this. If you think that he would have had the same sentence then you can claim that justice is served.
No one knows what he would have gotten, which is why it's a "strange game" to be playing. What we do know is that following whatever penalty was meted out, there would be a predictable rending of garments on the courthouse steps over the shocking injustice done to the guilty or the victim.
Impossible to say. It's also an example of why some people are impossible to please. The criminal justice system delivered justice in a color-blind fashion...and some people are still biittching. Go figure. 10 years is a fair result, given the unusual circumstances of the case. Consequences need to be had, but there was no malice here to be punished, IMO.
Perhaps this example will help all gun owners to be more careful and responsible
Sort of like Prom night when that one moron drinks and gets killed and ALL THE REST Of the seniors pause for a moment and think "jeeezz, maybe I aint bullet proof and smarter than everyone".............I love that answer AR. Concise and so different than all the rest..........
He should watch the sentencing of the Williams man that damn near killed Reginald Denny and then rethink this post. Pretty sure he was trying to kill Denny and would have if others hadn't intervened. How much compassion did Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman get? And remember coach, you posted this.
Let's see........ Large man walking into apartment of a petite woman and shoots her thinking she is going to do HIM bodily harm (or whatever her excuse was). Yep. Totally comparable events. And Shannon Sharpe's last sentence is complete bull****. I can't think of a single person who expected this man's family to be compassionate towards her, but they were. This pisses off the black racist bastards because they can't rail on whitey for killing a black man. The truth is, no one would give a **** about this man getting shot if it wasn't a white person who pulled the trigger.
Vast majority are killed by other black men and they sure as hell ain't showing any compassion killing them so he's a little off on that as well.
Here is the deal diehard. Shannon Sharpe said it. I made no comment. I just remember him doing commentary and being a level headed up front guy. If he believes this maybe people should take note instead of ALWAYS getting defensive. Was Reg, Denny that guy being murdered during the riots with a brick? That POS should have been locked up for ever.........it was gruesome. I kept thinking the helicopter pilot should throw his goddddmmmmm camera or something at the POS.
Why did you feel the need to post it? Just to be contrary? Shannon Sharpe doesn't know these people from Adam and the family decided to forgive the women. Let it go. His family ain't squeaky clean either.
I figure there usually two sides to things. Shannon Sharpe is not you and his life is not yours. His experiences are not yours. You think he said this without any reasons of his own. Your argument is with SHarpe...........he has you aggravated about it.I just posted what he said.
SS is a dumb ass.
Correct. His big brother was an NFL superstar multi millionaire. He didn't have to pay for college. He also became an NFL superstar multi millionaire. Then he got a job talking about football for millions more. He's been rich and famous nearly all of his life with all the appurtenant privileges. So yeah, he is not me and his life is not mine. By the same token, he is not Botham Jean and his life is not Botham Jean's. Right? Alex.
I think before anybody can really comment on whether the sentence was appropriate you'd have to understand the motive behind the killing. I have no idea what possible motive this woman had to kill this man other than what she thought was self defense after having a massive loss of situational awareness. If the motive was jealousy, robbery, hate, making too much noise or whatever I could understand the murder conviction more easily. But absent that it just seems like manslaughter is a more appropriate charge, I dunno.
Probably zero. It would just be normal negligence then. Something like this. Florida man will not face charges after accidentally killing son-in-law Actually, if Botham were a gang thug, and he robbed someone then shot them in the face, he would do about seven years on average for a murder conviction. Of course the clearance rate is less than 10% these days in many liberal cities. Or maybe of his name were Aaron Hernandez, he could shoot a half dozen people in the face over 10 years before anyone noticed.
Damn I used to think SS was a smart dude! Who are we kidding, I always thought he was an ignorant blowhard with a 10th grade education.
Did you read her racists rants on social media and her fantasies of violence? I thought maybe it could have been a mistake. But now I dont. And the hugs by the brother and judge....puke.
Racist rants??? Missed it. Link? Alex.
