Yes, throw this imbecile judge Kahn off the bench! White should have called the police and stayed indoors! He murdered this kid in cold blood and got away with it!

Its messed up that the boy died but thats what he gets. I hate that ppl are trying to gang up on John White for trying to protect his family. I dont care what nobody says, let 4 or 5 white guys even come anywhere NEAR my door cussing and ranting and raving...they were basically asking for trouble. Had it been the other way around, they would have been like "oh i felt afraid because these black gangsters were on my property" uggh this makes me sick. And i wish they would shut up with this "oh he shoulda called the police" bull. The police are practically good for nothing so i woulda took matters into my own hands too. For some reason, alot of white ppl get brave when they start drinking and then want to pop off. Well if thats the case then be ready for anything because they had no business anywhere near that mans house. I dont care. I mean im sure John didnt intend to kill the guy but that italian guy had NO BUSINESS even NEAR his HOUSE! So they need to get over it.

Note to John White: Consider your 2 to 4 year sentence as a gift from God and serve it. Only then will you find peace.

cultural diversity???

John White is lying. It is obvious. How come he not given a lie detector test on this concocted story? I was ambushed by a mob? yea right..I hope the family sues the White family, AL Sharpton and those 100 fools in "law inforcemet???" and ISLAMSS for 150 million dollars.

I watched 20/20 and White was TOTALLY wrong! He should have just called the police and those kids would have gotten in trouble. You don't go and shoot an UNARMED BOY in the face. The judge is a P.O.S and needs to be removed from the bench. 100 Blacks In Law Enforcement should all lose their jobs and pensions too. RACIST COPS right there. And White's wife needs to lose the GOLD hair! Gosh, what a train wreck she is.

Bgirl I could not have said it any better than you did!!!!!!
John White Should not have EVER been prosecuted in the first place! I thought I saw a swatstika on the back of one of the men's head when Mr.Cicciaro ranted and raved in front of the press about how dare Mr. White get a minor sentencing.......Don't get me wrong, I am not condoning killing someone, but some of those people did look like skin heads and I've been around drunk white racist people. They love to say the "N" word like they drink alcohol!
.....don't get me started on the reporter.......she seemed very biased when interviewing Mr. White. Especially when she asked him why didn't take the bullets out of the gun before he went outside. WTF! Mr. White should have asked her if SHE would take the bullets out of the gun if drunk black men came to her house in the middle of the night to get her son saying come out of the house whitey. Good grief! You best believe if this were to happen to me I would do the same thing....and personally, I believe a white person would have done the same thing as Mr. White did and they would not have called the police either.
I just hope and pray that the White family won't get lynched for real now.

After reviewing the 20/20 show again.....I retract my statement above. I do think that the Whites should have called the police, but I don't agree with him having to do jail time.

mr. white is so wrong in so many ways. he is a coward. defending his family? he shot the boy in the face. an unarmed boy. he is a church going baptist and father? lord have mercy! he should no better! lynch mob? give me a break! im sick of these excuses. it is 2008. wake the fuck up. the kid was 17. because they are white. wtf? they are teenagers, sons, friends. how bout aarons friends comments about raping the poor girl? which started this mess. but its dano and his friends to blame. and damn al sharpton. he dont care bout anyone but himself. it is so obvious. oh by the way i am white and not racist and pride myself on thi everyday. i love all.

The man had an illegal gun and shot someone regardless of skin color. I could see if these boys tried to get into the house to get Aaron White, but they did not. The police should have been called and Mr. White should have told the boys the cops are on the way and get off my property... He deserves jail time for using deadly force against someone who was unarmed, and it should be more than 2 to 4.. stop all the nonsense talk about KKK and lynch mob, etc. etc. IT does nothing but makes things worse not better..

Are you kidding me? I think alot of people have lost track of whats important here. A young boy was shot and KILLED! This man deserves to go to jail. The justice system failed this family! I dont give a damn if it was white on black or white on white or even black on black. This man is an adult and as an adult he never should have thought of bringing a gun into it. What are we teaching our kids? That if someone doesnt like you and they confront you that its alright to take the law in their own hands? Alot of lines were crossed. Forget the racisim involved and think about how wrong this man was for shooting a boy. He deserves to sit in jail, accident or not a child died in this situation and now a family has lost a son, brother, cousin, nephew and grandson. Where is the justice if this man walks?

This was a flight or fight moment and seconds counted. If I were in Mr.White's shoes i would have reacted almost the same way. But i would have first fired a shot in the air. That would have made the boy's run back to their car I bet. This young kid shouldn't have died. Mr. White made a horrible mistake.

I agree that Mr. White should have called the cops, but I guess it was ok for 2 cars 5 white males to pull up in his driveway at midnight with a baseball bat to fight 1 black boy I guess it was ok that they were on his property yelling racial remarks and he asked them to get off of his property and it was perfectly ok that his dad admits that hes a racist on 20/20 saying he uses the n word but its just a word and then they calling his house saying he was going to kill his son damn and he wasnt suppose to protect his family let me guess the white males were coming over to talk and have a cup of coffee and do u really think the cops would have came fast to dissolve the matter why should he have to feel like a prisoner in his own home to protect his family thats what kkk did in the slavery days and they just watched their houses get burned down waiting on the cops to come and white males coming to just talk about the problem and none of them going to jail so looking at the history of the united states and the justice system I think he made a decision only on 1 thing protecting his family why did Daniel and his Friends go to the Whites house Lets talk about that they claim they never used the n word but on the 911 call they were screaming were going to get them n----- they already proved they lied on tv they switched there story up 5 times

You must not have a radio in your town. If you listen to 50 cents, snoop dog, Dr. DRE and a bunch of other Rap music you will hear the N word all over the place. So if a love song or sex song have the N word in it and a black music song comes out and makes millions of dollars, how the heck do you teach you children not to use that word, you moron.
If you never heard it before as one brother greeting another you live on another planet. Just go ahead and by a CD from one of these rappers and you will hear it and every time they say it in a song the cash register spits out more money because another "inner city" kid buys the cd, and mimics the words from Scarsdale to Harlem.
