This is where I'm flabbergasted. If everyone thinks its wrong to have shot the robber after he came back, isn't that the the very definition of 1st degree murder? He thought about it, and did it with malice. That's first degree murder! It wasn't reactionary. It wasn't a crime of passion. It was done with forethought. Why advocate someone getting off early in a case such as this but not with others? All convicted murderers should get off in 20? I ain't buyin it. This was a revenge killing. No better or worse the gang retribution killings which so many of us decry. And just because the robber was black, is that really a need to try to demean how we percieve he or his family talk? In some sort of ebonic slang?
