I'll bet drugs and or alcohol were involved. But no problem he'll plead innocent get a public defender(on our dime) be sentanced to 10 years but the judge will suspend all ten and all he will have to do is a couple weekends in jail then be let out to do it all over again.'

"While the neighbor was inside his residence, Medina entered the porch area and allegedly began threatening him while holding the knife."

And here is where the Castle Doctrine would have come into play. BANG! One dead dirtbag. Of course, if that actually happenned, Mary Lynne Newell would have locked up Medina for life for killing this scumbag. According to her Medina should run away instead of protecting himself and his property.

And yes...expect a slap on the wrist and "drug counciling" for the knifeguy.

This guy is a long time dirt bag. He has been a parasite for years in the grant county area. He will get away Scott free and will do it again. Watch out PA he is a thief too.

I envy the ability of some people to predict the future. Why haven't any of you who know exactly what will happen won the lottery yet?

By the way, America locks up more people than just about any other country, so the apparent leniency you so abhor (before it's even happened) is not supported by those tedious things called "facts", but then they do have a terrible tendency to get in the way of personal prejudices or political agendas.

Spoken like a true, bleeding heart, clueless liberal. Tell you what Mr. Touchy-Feely..bond this rat turd out of jail and take him home to your house. See if you and your family wake up in the morning with a knife sticking out of your ribs. Then come back and cry about how this scuzzball was mistreated by those who think he should meet "ol' sparky".

Ya know, regardless of anyone's opinion (even mine), this is a human being, and the victim was a human being too. Needless to say, all involved are human beings. As human's we can say that there is always more than what meets the eye in these situations....especially as our eyes only meet these words written in the 'news', they did not witness the event. The witnesses know what happened, and without assuming much, alcohol was most likely a factor......but only those who were there, and witnesses, truly know what happened. It is up to us, every individual in Grant County, to do good things. Some people do bad things, but that does not mean they always bad people. Judge not, till you judge yourself. That being said, even I am a hypocrite. Wake up, we all are. Perhaps the knife wielder's situation of being ostracized (so to speak) from the society due to alcohol use of his, in a way led him to this event. That is not to take away any of the decisions made on his part. But like all of us, he exercised his free will within a set of choices given to all of us. Yet, these choices are all limited, that is unless you believe in manifestation. To those that know this man (Lorenzo) you may have compassion for his situation, for those who don't, well, your immediate need to vent about the bad things in Silver are well deserved, but require a different target, such as houses that run drug dens disguised as at home auto-repair shops (But what do I know, I've only seen my neighborhood go down hill in the last year due to this happening, and now I'm trying to move). There's my fifty cent piece. Like many great musicians, Lorenzo has his habits, whether it was American spirit tobacco, or alcohol. Just thank got he didn't kill anybody or get killed himself.

Wow! He has pretty hair! He really does! My mom would sell her soul for hair like his. I wonder if this fruit cake will let any of the other inmates run their hands through his hair?

Brian, perhaps you would like to volunteer to help this fine citizen by allowing him to stay in your home till the "facts" are worked out? I am sure HE would appreciate it. I bet your elitist attitude would change if his kind lived next door to you? Hmmm? Political agendas and personal prejudices aside, you are full of horse manure.

I'll keep this in mind when he's robbing my home or holding a knife to my throat. There's my .50 cents worth.

We have more loonies in the us who need to be locked up because of a world class welfare system that pays teen sluts to breed scum. Some unfortunate offspring of single welfare moms pull themselves up and make something of themselves but most are gang members, drug addicts or other forms of lowlife. They need to be locked up and many need to be disposed of.

If you personally knew this guy (and I don't believe that for a moment), why the hell didn't you try and get him some professional help? I love these straw posters who claim they knew these dirbags or were related to them. Why don't you just tell the truth? You have a persona agenda that thinks all criminals should be released to do their evils on the community.

I know Lorenzo also, not well enough to say what he did or didn't experiment with, but well enough to say there was nothing about him to suggest he's a meth user. He does have a drinking problem and a tendency toward impulsive violent reactions. And I'd have to add to that, something of a self-esteem issue. Keep in mind if he were just a bit smaller he’d qualify as a midget. No, I'm not diss'ing midgets, I'm just pointing out that in the real world being overly short is a handicap one ends up having to constantly prove themselves over. As for the charges brought against him this article suggests his assault amounted to some minors cuts and scratches EMS treated at the scene. That degree of attack doesn’t really sound like much of an attempt at murder, it sounds more like he was so drunk he couldn't think, act, or walk straight, which is pretty much in keeping with Lorenzo's usual tempo. The solution here is for Lorenzo himself to buy off on the need to clean up his life. That's a decision he needs to make on his own and it is not an easy one to make. Nonetheless he's at a crossroad right now, either he's going to take the high road or he’s going to take the low road. He could make the right choice, that's not impossible, just difficult. If Lorenzo really wants to prove how tough he is, now's the time. Otherwise he'll just go back to being a sawn off hammered down little drunk facing a future of passing in and out of prison. That may sound harsh, but that's life.

I could not agree with you more. New Mexico is full of teen sluts (New Mexico leads all US states in teen pregnancy) and Grant County is no exception. Future thugs and lowlifes are being bred by thugs and lowlifes all around us. This scum is multiplying! I am moving away from here this summer...so long!

Lorenzo has a previous record of such violence, is a repeat offender, and has been a menace to downtown Silver for more than ten years. He should do some serious time for this offence, then probation with community service and therapeutic counseling, or a permanent home at the state institution for the criminally insane. I tried to help him myself several years ago when he tried working as more than a barfly. It was an exercise in futility. I suspect he's already had some anger management help, but apparently he just cannot grow up and accept a responsible, contributing life.

I'd like to know where exactly you think you're going to avoid this? Don't move to the east coast because you won’t find it any better there, just a lot more expensive. And don't move to the west coast, that's where we're from, it's a lot worse over there. And, it's a whole lot more expensive. And don't move to middle America, unless you really like red necks, lot's of meth, and Rush Limbaugh. You could go south, into Mexico, see how that works out, or north, into Canada, if you really like cold, or check out some other continent. I hear Afghanistan is nice. The fact is, our world has become more violent, more drug infused, more sexually deranged, and more immoral from what it was just a few decades ago. In addition, we now have communications technologies that keep us much better informed, and, like this forum, allow us to interact and express ourselves in a public, yet anonymous way. By doing so however, we become more involved, we dwell on issues, fixate on them. Lorenzo got locked up on Wednesday. In the old days we'd have heard about it on Thursday, perhaps said something, and by now forgotten about it. Instead here we are, still in active dialog. I believe it makes more sense to understand and accept the world for what it really has become, even beyond the borders of Grant County, and if you're going to move, do so with the mind set of really wanting to be at that new place, rather than just getting away from this one. Otherwise, your new home won't prove to be any better, and whatever baggage you brought here will show there as well. In the end, no matter where you are, make the world a better place in the sphere that surrounds you, and it will be a better place for all of us.
