    Ex-High School wrestler. In other words it should have never been in the article at all. Then again the MMA ban is still up in NYC right?

    So, IMO, they are looking for reactions like Noteefa's.

    I'm not sweating the kid at all for accidentally killing a guy while defending himself. It is not like he jumped on the guy and continued to pound on him while he was already out. Like in the MMA death thread.

    This guy put on a head lock and probably adrenalin caused him to squeeze too hard. **** happens. Hope they don't charge him with anything. That would suck.

    On a side note, I accidentally choked an inmate out in a headlock. It was in a chow hall and this inamte was sitting over an officer punching him in the face. The chow hall can be a particularly dangerous environment. So I ran over, put the guy in a headlock and started pulling him out of the chow hall. I thought he pulled away from me so I yoked him up harder. When I got outside, I let go to cuff him up and found out that he was unconscious. Oops!

    ...former high school wrestler
    Hang on, isn't that just ... most young murkin men?

    Anyway, if it was an attempted robbery with assault, and if he did have previous ... then good riddance.
    We can only hope more attempted muggings result in the death of the mugger.

    i know recalcitrant criminals dont attract the most sympathy, but celebrating a death like that just sounds fucked up, man.

    srsly though. in my country the victims would probably be villified via media shitstorm and then charged in court. self-defense is a very, very grey area here

    No one is celebrating a death. They are commenting on you get what you give. You try to rob and assault someone you just might end up dead. Even without the court record it was his own fault.

    i get that violence begets violence and he should get what he deserves. just that i'd rather it be jailtime or a broken nose than death. also, "good riddance" and "We can only hope more attempted muggings result in the death of the mugger." sound pretty extreme to me.

    Social Darwinism. We're fans.

    If more muggers had the tables turned on them, maybe there would be less muggers overall. Maybe.

    The death was unfortunate, and I would be surprised if it was anything other than accidental.
    Shut the hell up and train.
