I received the following e-mail from someone personally acquainted with the two dead boys.
Hey my name is ___. I was well aquainted with the 3 of the 4 Robbers. Including the 2 whom were murdered. I recently learned about the acts. I've read just about every blog posting, and article. I wonder if we can continue further. Maybe take a little more action? Keep me posted please, and thanx for your time. I mean, the way things have been I can't decide weather I should even persue this. However I'm a very religious catholic and God won't let me forget if I do not. Thank you again.
I responded like this:
I'm not sure what you mean by "pursue this," but I wouldn't mind making another post on this case. Please tell me more. And let me know if what you tell me can be used on my blog. I can keep your name out of it, of course. I'm sorry for your loss, if you consider it that. My whole thing is that many of these so-called defensive shootings are nothing of the sort. Thanks and take care. M
And the latest:
Hey again. And Yes, I consider it a loss only because things could have been handled differently, and its always a sad situation with things like such. By persue this I meant emphasize the holes in the media's story. Simply because defense comes along with lethal threat, and having shot a 12 gauge shotgun 4 times toward backsides proves there was less of a threat than we've been forced to believe there was. I just want the families of the dead men to know that somewhere along the lines justice has been served. Again I want to thank you for your time and support. I think its wonderful what you've done. You were the 1st person who stood out to me bc you haven't classified Gus as a hero, but as another suspect. Be well, ___.
What's your opinion? Is New York so down on criminals that they actually made a hero out of a guy who shot two of them running away? Can such a think be justified?
