From this story out of Boston last Friday.
The 18-year-old who allegedly held up a Dorchester pizza shop at gunpoint and made off with $60, told police afterwards that when he fired off a shot at the pizzeria’s owner he didn’t mean to hit him, but he didn’t deny pulling the trigger, a prosecutor said today.
“Didn’t mean to..” ?! What the hell is that supposed to mean? Is that supposed to make Mumin Manavoglu’s family feel any better. Let’s hang him now, but then give an official statement afterwards saying, “we didn’t mean to.”
Second point of disgust: the county DA. Can’t find the reference (may have been removed or was only played on local stations), but Bruce at MassBackwards gives the full rundown:
Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley:
“Once again, an illegal gun has struck down an innocent family man, and once again a young man may pay for his actions for the rest of his life,” he said.
Uh-huh. The gun did it.
Brillant, Bruce 🙂
