Question for the Judge:
Why would you give an uneducated convicted murderer a full 30 days to let him self "prepare" for his sentencing day?
Could you not have given him 3 days if that at all?

I will not try to jjustify killing this young man but I do have a very important question.
Why are police justified when they think a person has a weapon and takes his or her life? Are they not to be held to a higher standard than the common citizen who fears for his or her life like the excuse used by so many cops who shoot people who are also unarmed? As a former military member, if a low ranking enlisted member commits an offense he or she is punished.
If an officer comits the same offense he or she is punished exponentially more harshly than the former.
Why then does this rule not apply to police? They know the laws better than anyone and take folks to jail for infractions. Why are they treated with kid gloves when they commit to what amounts to heinous acts of violence?

One more thing. It is incredibly insensetive to condemn the murdered in this situation. If you think the life of the young victim is worthless you should keep your opinions to yourself.

lesson here is dont put your self in retarded situations and go flashing your lights at some one who looks like a gang banger or any one at that matter. Also just dont even be apart of gangs its retarded first off and second you always either wind up dead or in jail...when are they going to learn? Oh well let them keep killing each other, but try not to take out any innocent people along the way.

LBJJ. Boy did you nail it. Nice to know that there actually people here in Long Beach that have heard of the Rosetta Stone and what it is used for.
Believe it's in The British Museum as I recall.

as a legal research person/ I find it very hard and grasp the notion that this mans life was in imminent danger/ there is no gun recovered and is shot in the back both head & back ?? let's say for a moment that the victim did reach for a weapon? this guy should had warned him of being shot?? as one other comment above stated that when police believe they are in imminent they shot, but with a warning?? this case is gang related and shall get it's final close when he is sentence to life. he should have walked away? and now everyone on his side is coming up with all these legal reason which they have made, that amount to none?? there is no legal reason and defense attorney is just reaching & for what he is reaching for? is nothing- he is through with money, that's it go get your number and bed.

Have you never heard the phrase "Live by the sword, die by the sword?" Or how about "you sow what you reap?"

You live a violent gang life, you die a violent gang death.

He might have deserved it at this time or not. The facts of THIS case are that this gang member shot someone in the back twice and in the back of the head once, I don't see anywhere where there was a self defense issue.

This violent gang member should have been tried and convicted of first degree murder and should have been sentenced to death.

Funny, that murderer can be saved in prison and end up in paradise (with you), while someone like me, a law-abiding citizen, married (never divorced), I love and provide well for my wife and kids, I'm responsible and pull my own weight in society, I treat people with consideration, yet your religion believes I'll be damned for eternity for being an atheist. Say 'hi' to Tex Watson when you get there.

im speechless, i really dont believe a judge is giving this guy time to represent himself.
does he really need time to think what he has to say? and try to figure out a way to explain to seem he is not guilty.
the restaurant across the street had cameras, check those stupid cops, edgar flashed the lights cuz those stupid crabsk didnt move out the way. either way there was gonna be a conflict, either he honked or flashed the lights, this is all bull it was a fukn set up every1 knows, fuk that girl that was with him 2 she lying

I believe he's still going to be sitting in jail during that time. If so, then it doesn't really matter, he still isn't free. When someone with no legal experience chooses to represent him/herself, you want to go one step further and give them plenty of time so that they can't come back later and appeal. "YOU chose to represent yourself, and I even gave you extra time to prepare. NO APPEAL GRANTED!"

this is so dumb
WE ALL KNOW he meant to do this ...if he was doing self defense ...
1)why would he come back and shoot the guy
2)why didnt he keep walking instead OF running if he really felt something was going to happen 4 example get shot...
3)what were they doing with a gun in the streets...
4)why try and kill the girlfriend if he had killed the guy already ...
what was the girl gonna do get down and beat him up ..
PLEASE this is ridiculous HES GUiiLTY!

For a legal research person, I have to say your writing says to me that you are a file clerk. I will not defend this guy's ignorant act but I do believe his affirmative defenses would hold up, had he not been affiliated with a street gang. Like the last posting, if the police are able to use the defense raised by this young man, why shouldn't he be given the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately, the kid was a gang member and since most people label gang members as terrorist - there words have no meaning.
funny you should mention "terrorist"
according to corrupt prosecutor Sharon Panian (who stalks and harasses married LBPD by the way)... according to her, the simple act of allegedly "calling your x boyfriend" is a "terrorist" act.

That word is spread pretty thin these days, and used for whatever purpose it can serve at any given moment to conjure up "Fear" in average Joes already frightened brain.

go figure!

Sort of like the word "cult." "My belief is religion and your belief is a cult." It's used as a dirty word against beliefs one does not agree with.
