With his cell phone in hand while calling 911 he kit the brute while trying to get away.

Sounds like erratic actions as the result of Pharmacutical mind drugs.

If so, shouldn't the psychiatrist or medical doctor be prosecuted as contributing to these action? The medical community is well aware of the threat to the health and welfare of the society from the use of these drugs and the bogus diagnoses they provide.

Death, violence and suicide by mind drugs

Does this sound like the actions of a sane person (Sharrin)? Sounds to me like he was disturbed and possibly on Pharmacutical mind drugs.

"According to witnesses, Sharrin jumped out of his vehicle, pounded on the hood of the Nissan and shouted obscenities at Potts. At that point, police said, Potts tried to back up, but when a car blocked him, he accelerated forward, knocking Sharrin to the ground and running over him. Potts then drove a block, south on National Boulevard, where two pedestrians who had witnessed the incident pulled him from his vehicle. Long Beach police then arrested Potts."

No doubt that Potts would be frightened by the action of Sharrin pounding on his car and yelling obscenities. He was trapped! This wouldn't even be a case if Potts was a female who frighten by some lunatic pounding on her car and yelling obscenities.

Sharrin also was involved in a high speed chase with Potts. Unclear who started the chase but reason would state it was Sharrin since he got out of the car and then began pounding on Potts car.

Potts was just trying to get away from the actions of Sharrin.

My bet is Sharrin was on drugs. Pharmacutical mind drugs causing his agitation and attitude problem.

I cannot beleive that this poor kid is in trial. Human Spirit is correct, if the kid was a woman there would be no trial.
What the heck was he supposed to do, he was being assaulted.

A man has a right to protect and defend himself. The law doesn't specify how. If a gun was used by Potts.. would that have been exceptable. The man thought his life was endangered. Is a gun or knife the standard protection that can only be used in self defense on the street?

The truth will surface. Education should not be the marker for justice. The merits of the case are (as should be in all criminal and civil courts) that all men are created equal.

We have some exception that seem to violate the law in the rape shield cases that the mental health was instrumental in pushing through legislation for their own benefit that violates a mans / womans right to stand before their accuser. There are also cases where false allegation are made in which civil rights are violated by the hearsay of an unknow party to a government agency.

There is also problems in the court cases where the judge orders a mental health evaluation that would violate the 5th amendment in self incrimination, 1st admendment in free speech or lack there of and we must not overlook the issues of privacy specifically spelled out.(This understanding in the criminal or Family area of law has to be changed in order to abide by the Constitution)

It is time we reevaluate the court and change procedures to align the court with the Constitution.

LetÂ’s be honest Evan Potts typical example of the product of Oceanside the trash city. Oceanside and a few towns around Oceanside the only thing comes from these towns are White Trash, black trash and welfare trash. East Rockaway is another town littered with derelict kids and lower type class of residents just like Oceanside.

Not only should Evan be found not guilty, he should be given Mr. Sharrin's porche as compensation. What a douche, stay in yer car road rager and everything would've been just fine.

I agree, unfortunately that stupid testosterone stained yellow Porsche will not compensate the Pott's family for the money they have laid out on bail and lawyers.
