RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE



Ten years for a murder. What the fuck is that. With good behavior he could be out in five. That's a slap in the face to that kid's family and not by any stretch of the imagination can that be called justice.

RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE

I agree, it's not enough time.

If he behaves himself in jail, he could be out by the time he's 23. I hope he gets in a lot of trouble.

If he does the full sentence, he'll only be 28 when he's released.

It sucks. I don't think Smithers meant to murder Gleason, but he sure as hell meant to hurt him, for a thrill, and he caused an innocent stranger's death in any case.

I wish the penalty for this second degree murder would have been much harsher.

At least there was no successful affluenza defense in play on this one.

RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE

This case doesn't involve the "knock out" game specifically, but it's a crime of murder by random knock-out, so it fits alright in this thread.

Ryan Flannigan, 26 -- RIP

Ryan and his buddies were at a bar in Palatine, Illinois a week ago last Friday.

Another group of buddies were at the same bar.

Both groups reportedly ended up outside at the same times and there was some verbal back and forth between the two groups, but nothing violent.

That's when this winner, ^ Michael Platt - 34, randomly decided to punch Flannigan in the head.

Flannigan fell backward and was knocked unconscious. He never regained conciousness and died 10 days later, on Monday.

Platt had initially been charged with aggravated battery and was out on $75,000 bail. He's now in custody on $2,000,000 bond and charged with first degree murder.

One stupid, (probably) drunken, unnecessary punch -- one life is over and the other is likely going to be spent paying for it. Senseless violence.

^ this type of thing has become unfortunately common over here in recent years. It's resulted in the term 'King hit' being relabelled as a 'Coward's punch' and a whole bunch of new legislation and new, more severe, minimum penalties for those convicted under the new laws.

It's bad enough that people assault and/or kill other people due to greed or jealousy, or for revenge.

But, really sad when categories of crime have to be created in our countries to properly administer justice for violent crime motivated by no apparent motive other than thrill or apathy towards the rights of strangers to just be.

Some days I hate reading the news; this is one of them.

Update to Post 1

^ Remember this effin' dipshit? Well, he pleaded guilty to the racially motivated assault in June.

The U.S. Department of Justice made the cellphone video public on Friday after a Freedom of Information Act request by the Houston Chronicle on the basis it had been introduced in court as evidence.

This is the video:



Barrett also filmed himself referring to blacks as niggers and commenting that they haven't fully experienced the blessing of evolution. The footage was a pivotal part of the case against Barrett in the November 2013 assault.

He was sentenced to almost six years in federal prison, followed by 3 years supervised release. He also had to pay $2,000 restitution to the 79-year-old black man he targeted (Barrett's punch broke his jaw in two places).

RE: KNOCK OUT ASSHOLE

This pisses me off.

64-year-old Patrick Gorman was walking in Queens around midnight, minding his own damned business as he neared his apartment complex.





That's when CCTV ^ captures a man punching him in the head in an unprovoked attack and then casually walking off with a female (believed to be the assailant's girlfriend).

EMTs were unable to save Gorman, who died a short while later at the hospital.

Police released the video to the public hoping someone will recognize and report the piece of shit who killed Gorman (RIP).
