What a moron. I don't hunt and I don't have a gun. Why is it that even I know that a bullet can sometimes be lodged in the chamber? You never point a weapon at anyone no matter what, NEVER, unless you intend to use it. MORON!

One of my high school classmates died from being shot with an "unloaded gun". I agree with "broken"...never point a weapon at anyone.

Horrible accident. Preventable accident. But was an accident.

I own several guns and I take all my neices and nephews to the range at young ages and teach them how to handle a gun with respect. The first thing I do is ask them "what is the most dangerous gun that you could point at someone?" I give them the answer one time and everytime after that, if I ask them the question and they do not know the answer, they don't go til they get it. The answer is "an unloaded gun."
The other thing I would like to know is why are these guys being charged if it was an accident. A short time ago, an Easton, PA cop shot another Easton cop in the back and killed him right in the police station. According to the State Police, it was an accident and this cop got walk.

They should take all these backwoods trailer park white people and shoot them all!
Clean out the trailer parks, hotbeds for drug activity and breeding, and build a CVS where they stood!
If the men in this situation happened to black or hispanic, they'd be facing attempted murder charges and denied bail!
Where are the forum sociologists now?

Anyone?

Oh wait, unfortunately the gentleman died.

That would be a murder charge, no bail and classified as "gang activity."

See the double standard?

Hey "Ex Combat Medic", too bad you didn't take a round in the head when you were involved with combat - that way we wouldn't have to listen to your BS.

The difference is white people only shoot people by accident. With the city crews its never an accident.

Ex Combat Medic is right. Back in 2000, a white guy slashed me in the throat and he was charged with disorderly conduct and had to pay my medical bills. I was in the hospital for 5 days and still have nightnares about it. During the lawsuit trial, the all white jury awarded me nothing. 2 years ago, my neighbor shot a guy in the foot accidently while hunting. My neighbor is a black man and the guy he shot is a white man. My neighbor was charged with aggravated assult with a deadly weapon. He was sentanced to 3 1/2 to 12 years. He is still locked up. This guy has never been in trouble his whole life. Yes, it is a race thing.

There are no trailer parks in Port Carbon or Schuylkill Haven.

You'd think that from being a former combat medic you'd have a greater appreciation of life and wouldn't say dumb things like that.

Why do you feel the need to tell us all that you're a former combat medic? I know two and they don't tell everyone they "see".

Kill the messenger if you like!

I am just trying to prove a point at how incidents are perceived differently depending on whos involved.

Any article about a shooting in center city has comments that are ten times as insensitive as mine and I have seen some of you have left comments way worse than mine, yet jump down my throat for what I said about 3 white guys that don't know S**t about gun safety!

Oh, and I was joking to get a reaction from all you cyber-racists!

Mission accomplished!

Does anyone admit that these men would be treated differently if their faces were a shade darker? Or are you going to continue to kill the messenger?

Attack me all you want. It just shows that you are so narrow minded that you refuse to acknowledge a pretty obvious discrepancy.

Nice name, to bad there isn't an ounce of truth to it. Somebody with your IQ couldn't make it past, the wandering target classification, in the service. Find me a case where their skin was little darker and it was a truely accidental shotting and they recieved a longer sentence and they didn't have a previous record, using a legally owned gun.
