I think it was premeditated. I think Gianquitti (the murderer) planned this and lured Pagano into his house so he could do it and claim self-defense. He was a cop-he knew what he had to do to "stage" it and make himself look innocent. Who washes the floor with a loaded gun in a holster around his ankle? He knew exactly what he was doing. He planned to get Pagano to come to his house, he planned to incite Pagano to throw a punch, he planned to "fall" down the stairs (which I don't believe he really did-I believe Gianquitti is a LIAR as well as a MURDERER) so he could get Pagano past the entrance and claim "he came into my house" and he planned to kill him. Gianquitti got what he deserved. He has been out of control for years and now it's caught up with him. The community will be a safer place when Gianquitti goes to jail.

beacsue he was a witness to a capital murder how ever the press has double standards they did not print the victims name in the rape case even though she testified her self. so go figure it was wrong for the pres to do so.

..........Yeah, and you see no fault in the firemans aggressive acts. Lets turn it around. Why didn't the fireman back off?? Why didn't the fireman call the cops?? Seems everyone has a soft spot for bullies. Never see any problems with a guy getting violent cause he doesn't like what someone else is saying. Not a problem that the fireman punched the guy. No, its all the guy on the receiving ends fault. What a screwed up country.

First off, no violence was started by the ex cop. Pagano initiated it. So he likes violence untill it comes back at him. From my point of view, you start violence, your fair game for anything back at ya. Second, paganos knew this guy wanted to be left in peace on his property but had NO regards for him in respecting his wishes. But if he gets disrespectful back in words, well I guess its fine with you to get violent with him. It sure didn't look like pagano was there saying he'll keep his kids from the guys property. No, it was all bully and intimidation. Juries are idiots.

..........And you start right in with faulting the receiver of bullying and find no fault with the aggressor. Going in a circle. Like I said, its good to be the aggressive type A in this country. Everyone else should cower in their houses and hide from the bully. Because if you confront the bully and he gets hurt/killed, people will see him as the victim. Just incredible.

get this do not come off with your shitty attitude first of all!!! If there was that much of a problem why did he not get a restraing order against him?? guns r for cowards he should have kept reporting it they would have gotten sick of the calls and done something! This is why we have restrianing orders and another thing no one said the justice system was perfect obviously it isn't because if it was perfect this and all hainous crimes would not happen!! take it out on someone else my comment was made a while back and as far as I am concerned it is OVER!!!!!! but it isn't over for his widow and children they will live with this until the day they die!! and gianqutti's poor wife and his kids they have to carry the scars and burden of what he did!!! they r victims 2!!!!! so before u attack me step back and use your BRAIN!!!!!!!!!!

Gianguitti needed a gun by his side because of his pathetic lanky frame. My God, this guy looks anorexic! He won't survive prison being so tiny, that's for sure. Nah, he is going to become another inmate's "wife."

All Cops walk around with guns strapped to their bodys 24/7. Does it mean that at any given moment they are going to kill anyone for the hell of it? I don't think so. Something else happened in that house and people are just adding to it without really knowing the truth. Lets be real the person that died is not the only victim in this picture. There are kids and families hurting behind this fight that was caused by two adults not just one. I am not defending anyone but the truth remains that the fire fighter had no right going into any ones property to claim anything. If the issue was that big he could have retained an attorney and filed a formal complaint with the Court in a proper way. He caused a bigger problem than he bargained for.
