MILWAUKEE (AP) — A 76-year-old Milwaukee man who said he was seeking justice when he shot and killed his teen neighbor after accusing the boy of burglary was sentenced Monday to life in prison with no chance of parole.
John H. Spooner, who was convicted last week of first-degree intentional homicide, acknowledged shooting 13-year-old Darius Simmons in the chest last year while the teen's mother watched.
Spooner never denied shooting the boy. He testified, against his attorney's advice, that he killed Darius because he really wanted his guns back. He also acknowledged wanting to kill the teen's brother when the older boy ran to Darius' aid as he lay dying in the street. But Spooner said he didn't shoot the brother because he didn't want to hit any of the others who had gathered around.

NOW this is the one that shouldve created protests and rioting but nobody cares because they didnt have the media "guiding" their feelings like they did in the Trayvon case.
Perfect example of social engineering.
