The Justice System is a Joke - Murder with a 2" pocketknife?? Give me a break. Boyscouts, Hunters and women carry 2" pocket knives, does that make us all MURDERERS. A young boy was shot to death in Sanford Florida and the Killer is set free with NO CHARGES, whats wrong with this picture. The media should have given this SELF DEFENSE trial more publicity, maybe then a young man would not be sitting in jail for over 2 years. Where is the judge when the threats are going on to the jurors, witness' and others who are involved ( by the victims associates)? The Judge is running for state official and maybe that is why he is handling this case this way. NO ONE IS INNOCENT HERE no matter how your dressed, what your grades are, what sport you may play. When you hang out with the wrong people you can expect some kind of repercussions from your actions. And Where are the parents of this kid letting him be a hoodlum in Key West as locals stated, wanting to start trouble with out of towner and defending him saying he was completely innocent when he was not. Marques could have walked away just like they are saying Nick should have walked away - they didn't! Like I said NO ONE IS INNOCENT HERE!!! The police should be ashamed of themselves how this was handled and the Judge should be ashamed of himself placing a charge of second degree murder, no bail and throwing out Stand Your Ground law. I hope that the jurors will see the truth in this case. This is a travesty of justice in the Florida Keys.

During a 4am brawl where nobody runs away and one side is clearly outnumbered and not from KW I'd say anything goes.All the people involved on the KW side except MB were known trouble makers with long violent arrest records,prison sentences,Some who are in PRISON RIGHT NOW!!Why would MB hang out with these guys at 4am?Well one thing we know for sure is he was there and he didn't walk away..He chose to fight with the thugs.During a 4am street brawl that involves a lot of people your probably gonna get hurt..You might lose your life!!That is not MURDER but common sense!!MB was no stupid man by all the good things people say about him.He should have known this.What a shame!If your gonna charge someone with MURDER charge his so called friend..Another real stand up guy..A Key Wester..A Conch..Who told the court he started the fight!That he was beating all their asses(Ferro&friends) when MB got stabbed!Charge him with murder!!

Hmmm...knocking me for living in the Keys, yet, your location says Key West. No more needs to be said about that dumb comment.

But you said it yourself...4am drunken street brawl. Yeah, that makes it sound soooo much better. That just goes to show the mentality here. These people..both the suspect and victim, and their friends..are thugs and degenerates. This whole scenario is pathetic, just like their close friends.
