Lets face it young girls do stupid things...we all know that. However in this case the combination of girls & boys fueled by drugs, sex, and racism, caused this young man his life.

Mr. White should be free to kill again.

You don't know that either. He says he told his wife to call the cops as he was walking out the door.
Hindsight is 20/20 It's so very easy for you to sit here and say what he SHOULD have done.
Tell us about it when 5 teens start screaming at you on your front lawn at 1am how you react.
Your funny you must have told every person in every forum they do not have the facts...

I was not speaking about the girl in the article. I was asking the poster why she did not come forward back when she alleges she saw White sexually harrassing many girls. I wondered why she chose to come forward now.
I was never sexually assaulted or harrassed by White. If one of the girl would have stood up for herself and needed my word or testimony then I would have been happy to offer it. However, I don't believe in sticking up for people who won't stick up for themselves, or even admit that it happened. Had it happened to me, I would have raised hell. But these poor girls were too afraid to speak up. And people should always speak for themselves before someone else does on their behalf.

This is suspect. It sounds more like the guy was trying to make advances to a few girls that you know. There's a big difference.
Regardless...it's already been proven that White did not harass this girl. Who really sent the email?

2 separate occasions--boy that's a lot! So did you marry her? I married a Black woman (still am for now 14 years )ironically she's from South Jamaica (we had no problems there)and the majority of the issues came from the white side not when I dated her, but when I (again) married her. And as for this calling the police crap I keep hearing--I'll say this again here: There was an incident of vandalism on our property and when they arrived and my wife answered the door and said who she was, they didn't believe her until I showed up at the door. I read another post about a teacher whose son was nearly arrested for trespassing on his own residence. I don't blame him for not calling the police.
It all boils down to experiences. At 53 years old he's probably seen and heard more as far as white mobs than any of us tknowing White Folks couldn't ever imagine!--obviously not a lot of other White folks care.
If these "kids" had been arrested, they would've got a slap on the wrists. Sad that the young man died--absolutely. But that's a heavy lesson you pay for Westie/Soprano-like behavior. The threat came when those cars were at the end of each block. John White had every right to self-defense.
It is truly refreshing to read this from coming from a white person

I gues no one can read well here...
"As a matter of fact, you learned later that Aaron did not send those [threats], right?" Brewington asked
She didn't make it up, it was someone else who made the threats posing as young Mr White, so why is she being harrassed?
because if she reported it to the Police
the truth would have come out
Chocci would still be alive
and Mr White would be at work right now
little miss innocent
STFU up
she should have alerted her paerents
who should have called the Police
instead she told a drunked teenager she knows would do anything to get into her pants, at a party at her home where her parents allowed underage drinking
but that damn Mr White woken up in the middle of the night by the Jr Sporanos threatening his family

Chocci's actions were premeditated
John White's actions were spur of the moment

Sorry, I don't buy this explanation. The girls were too afraid to speak up? Why?

As for what happened here let me give you the quick low down. Parents who would rather seem cool to their kids instead of using common sense decided to let a bunch of irresponsible children consume alcohol to the point of extreme intoxication.
Throw into the mix an idiotic girl who decided instead of saying the truth most likely out of fear and the apparent extreme racisim displayed by her friends decided to lie which has been proven to rally support and empathy from the loser crew.
The loser crew decide even though they were exteremly intoxicated (the doa with B.A.L. of .16) to drive up north taking in no regaurd to the danger they put the public in while so intoxicated to take out their own form of white trash street justice.
An adult was awoken from his sleep by a scared son who knew this little junior KKK aux was on the way to cause trouble. The dad out of fear for his home and family decided to defend himself from these useless thugs. The dumbest in the group who seems to have the most to try to prove to his friends decided instead of running when firearms are being displayed to idioticly attempt to take the gun away from the adult.
End result one usless child is gone, his piss poor excuses for parents are outraged that thier usless son is now gone. They are trying to sue for their own lack of proper parenting which is the most common form of pass the buck parenting present in todays society.
So A) The parents who hosted the party should be locked up. B) The parents of the deceased should be ashamed of themselves and their son. C) Mr White should recieve a fine or sentence for illegally possesing a handgun but thats about it.
D) The rest of this group should be charged accordingly, have their drivers lic revoked till the age of 21 since they all proved they are a public danger with their lack of respect to current DWI laws and charged with Disorderly Conduct.
This case is clear expample of what happens when parents try to be a friend to their children instead of an actual parent.

Right on the money... except c) Mr. White should be given a medal for killing a criminal and making the community safer.

Your right I wish no one had to die, but let me ask you this. Lets say MR. White called the cops and they came and made the boys leave. What would of happened to aaron the next day or the day after that. The cops can't follow Aaron around for the rest of his life and Aaron was clearly dans target.Next time Dan may have been the one with a gun. Your a mother if this was your son would that thought not scare the hell out of you??????
That is so right! Applause coming from a REAL mother! This situation is so much like the case in Louisiana. The black man faces a long prison sentence while that scalawag's caretakers only face 1 year in prison for the causing this whole tragedy. Does anyone know if they can face multiple counts of endangering the welfare of a child since there were probably other teens at their "home" drinking liquor?

Applause again! I would have asked her on the stand why she nor her parents called the cops before she "stormed out the courtroom." They would have responded a lot faster to her than would have if White had called the cops

The only people that really KNOW 100% what when on that night (the truth..not what is in the papers or said at the trial) are Dano and his friends that were there (Tom, Anthony, Joe, and Alex) and Mr. White and his son and wife. That's it. Now one of them is dead and countless families lives are ruined, not just Dano's. The Whites, The Martins, the friends that were there.

A seventeen year old man is dead those of you who are calling him names and attacking his family should just stop. Mr. White needs to go to jail for what he has done....period. He walked out of the house with a gun and so did his son with intent. If Ciccaro wanted to hurt them with a bat he would have done so being three inches away when shot. We live in America and you don't take the law into your own hands!!!
Ahhh, Mom:

You ever think the reason the White's didn't come to bodily harm---meaning the reason Dano and friends didn't get to use the BATS was because the White were able to defend themselves with GUNS!!!

Duh!

Think some more Mom:

If the Whites didn't have guns, then the lovely and wonderful Dano and friends would have used the BATS and beat the Whites. In which case, it would be DANO & Friends on trial!

Get it?

Think about it Mom:

YOUR son would be facing serious jail time---and may very well still be.

Have a nice day.

'Juror Francois Larche, who is white, said he and another juror changed their votes after enduring "a lot of psychological tactics" from fellow jurors during an unusual weekend session ordered by the judge over jurors' protests.

"It was a huge burden to bear," Larche, 46, told the New York Post in Monday's editions. He added, "I took a lot of heat."

Jury forewoman Maureen Steigerwald denied the judge, a 12-hour deliberating session on Saturday — the fourth day of deliberations — or the holidays played a role in the jury's decision.

"The jury did a very careful, conscientious deliberate job," she told Newsday in Monday's editions.

Judge Barbara Kahn said the jury would have to return on Sunday if they didn't reach a decision. Larche told the Post the judge told them a mistrial would burden the families and the next jury.

"I thought about my family and the families of the other jurors," Larche said. "It was not worth it in the end."'
