    Man Gets 120 Days for Shooting Cyclist in the Head

    Police said Charles Diez, an Asheville firefighter since 1992, stopped his car to confront a couple riding bikes along heavily traveled Tunnel Road. Diez was apparently incensed by Alan Simons carrying his 3-year-old child on a seat mounted on the back of his bike. After an argument, Diez pulled a gun and shot at Simons, but the bullet passed through Simon's bicycle helmet, just missing his skull, police said.
    What the hell? Only 4 months for attempted murder? The judge cited his honorable service in military, his position as a firefighter, and his all around good guy image, as mitigating factors. You know what? I don't give a damn. He shot a guy in the head. The guy is lucky his bicycle helmet took the bullet, sparing his brain.

    I don't care if it is Jesus Christ who shoots someone in the head, in an act of attempted murder. He should do hard time. Someone please shoot the judge, then let's see if that judge would be just as lenient. LOL. Seriously, though......

    1) The shooter belongs in prison.

    2) That judge does not belong on the bench.

    Discussion?

    No, not reported was that the bicyclist was allergic to bee stings, and the fire fighter had shot a bee which was near the cyclist's head to save his life. You need to get all the facts first.


    But seriously, yes he needed to be tried for attempted murder and the judge's actions must be called into question here.

    This is absurd! The firefighter shoots the guy because he thinks it's unsafe for him to have his son on a bike in busy street?

    "I'm gonna have to kill you because what you are doing is unsafe"

    He chose the right profession, I'll give him that. Can you imagine if he was a police officer?

    I wonder if he shoots people who are in burning buildings. That's pretty unsafe.

    Pretty stupid though. I can't believe he got off so lightly.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    This is the type of garbage Law Enforcement deal with on a regular basis.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
