    Why do you hate our troops?




    I wonder why it is so taboo to recognize that soldiers are people like anyone else and that THEY ARE NOT HEROES unless they actually do something HEROIC.

    cyclists annoy me as well. we have lots of them here in california. those idiots think they're saving the planet and are willing to let their own kids get run over by some SUV just so they can reduce their carbon footprint.

    however just because somebody is naive and idealistic is not reason enough to kill them.

    the man who shot him should have gotten about 10 years.

    Actually, I think they did something pretty heroic when they enlisted.

    I was wondering why the headline is so misleading.
    I guess it is because the article is from biased source... treehugger.

    ...
    While Diez was originally charged with attempted first-degree murder, a grand jury refused to press those charges, instead indicting him on the felony assault charge.
    Convictions on such a charge result in an average 20-39 months in prison for the defendant. But in the sentencing, Superior Court Judge James Downs found that Diezís military service, along with testimony from former colleagues about his good character, were mitigating factors, and chose to sentence him to 15-27 months instead. Downs suspended all but four months of that sentence unless Diez breaks the law again in the next 30 months. As part of his sentence, Diez is required to attend anger-management training and pay $1,200 to cover Simonsí medical costs for damage to his eardrum.

    So why did the Grand Jury refuse to indict him on attempted murder?
    Do you think that it is quite possible that it wasn't an attempt to murder?
    Don't you think intent matters?

    Apparently the sentence he received was within the guidelines for such crime.
    The Judge used these factors as he should... suspension in the amount of the sentence to be served. And if he commits another crime within the period of his lengthy probation, he has to serve that suspended time.

    I have no problem with this sentence, as long as the individual is not allowed to own another firearm.

    No.
    He did not shoot a guy in the head.
    As you noted, the helmet took the bullet, and the helmet is not the head.

    His intent was to protect the child, buy shooting the child's father, whom he thought was being unsafe in riding the bicycle. Ever been to bizarro world?

    And, he shot at someone's head. What do you think was his intent of doing that? "Oh, let me just scare him a little. He's wearing a helmet, it won't kill him"

    That is your interpretation.

    Please provided the relevant testimony of his intent, that he actually aimed the weapon at his head, and that he purposely pulled the trigger.
    If you can not, then all you have is an assumption on your part.
