Why was he questioned without counsel and then arrested by his answers? He is only 19 and should not have been questioned without counsel or his parents. That is why we have these laws in place so people will not get what looks to be an unfair deal. Innocent until proven guilty, not GUILTY because you were on the next corner. Not saying he is not guilty but the article has already convicted him. So not fair.

If he told the police somethingthat gave them cause to arrest him I am thinking as they are cuffing him they said you have the right to remain silent ect...

Did you want his mommy there he is 19 years old in most states you are an adult at 18 so what is his mom gonna do ?

Too late now she should have taught him that women are people too and killing people is not a nice thing for him to do, And she should not have bought him a gun.

Everyone has a right to their opinion, and I have mine. I work in law therefore I stand by what I said, follow the letter of the law whether he is guilty or not. I guess you didn't read the comment that said that I didn't know if he was guilty or not but follow the letter of the laws that are set forth for these types of things. That is why we have so many mistrials and felons are let go, because we rush to judgment and forget to follow the law. But you have your opinion and have a right to it. I wonder would your opinion change if it was your son or daughter? Oh, I know, it wasn't was it?

You work in Law ? Being a janitor at a police station dont require a real working knowledge of the law I dont think. I believe it goes like this , 911 call police arrive, find dead body, start questioning people, did you hear,see or notice anything ? the answeres cause police to look for suspects, they find this one you say a block away , check him out if he matches whitness statements , You are under arrest , everyone 18 or 19 knows you have the right to remain sielent Bla Bla Bla , what do you think mom could have done ? she couldn't even see him only one who can is cops , and lawyers.

Hey Bondo!

Your ignorance is showing again. The police can ask you anything they want without counsel present and all of your answers are admisable as evidence. You do not have to Mirandize the perp untill you arrest them! Once again you show what a pompous and stupid a** you really are. Go back to watch TV crime dramas and leave reality to those intellectually capable of handling it!

Just a thought from your friendly neighborhood arbitor of good common sense.

Cheers A**hole!

this is my last post to this thread as well so no last word for you again A**hole!

Norm please learn to read if you look in this post you will see :You dont require a real working knowledge of the law I dont think. I believe it goes like this ;

911 call police arrive, find dead body, start questioning people, did you hear,see or notice anything ? the answeres cause police to look for suspects, they find this one you say a block away , check him out if he matches whitness statements , You are under arrest , everyone 18 or 19 knows you have the right to remain sielent Bla Bla Bla , what do you think mom could have done ? she couldn't even see him only one who can is cops , and lawyers.

I said police Question whitness, look for suspect, find one who matches statements , I said nothing about the the police questioning the suspect before the arrest read it Norm then post your brainnieack comments. I said they find suspect bingo norm they do what they do and arrest him I did not say anything about questioning him .

Don't let your anger cloud your thinking, thats what causes people to do things that they wouldn't normally do , Kinda like you know who, I am beginning to think maybe just maybe he may have just snapped and just had his full of people like you for instance putting him down and after what you said Gwen's daughter said to me and your wife also I can only imagine what Gwen was like and who knows your whole family may just drove Todd to the point of no return . Your postings show a clear case of ( No one is better than me thinking ) I think the jury may believe he snapped for a moment in time and when he came out of it seen what he had done and turned himself in .
