The whole thing stinks of a beginner. I mean you said it reminds you of writers you tutored.
Oh noes, kids with alchohol and thc in their system. They were surely hardened street criminals. What schlocky writing for an article. I don't think Scott should be punished, but he's not a hero either.
Did Phill Elmore write that article? Whatever about the actual events (I'd need to see a legitimate source before I comment), the writing style was worse than the Daily Mail.
Rodderick Scott is welcomed to move to Arizona where he would likely get elected as Sheriff of some town.
Was that the shooting on the Indian Reservation?
Was this in Phoenix Metro?
The guy looks like he could seriously lay the hurt on somebody and it makes me wonder what would have happened if he beat up the kids until the authorities got there or maybe just just shot one of them in the leg.
Truth be told it's sad but what those kids did was just outright wrong and stupid. I'm glad this guy didn't get sentenced, he doesn't deserve jail time.
Hold now I gotta poke around through NY state self defense law...
