Well, in what is a nice close to this story, the guy who shot the black boy in the chest, on video while his Mom watched from a window has been sentenced. The result? Natural Life. NO parole. The mean old coot will die in prison, as befits such two legged hate.


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.


This was originally covered in this thread: Video shows white Milwaukee man shooting black teen as mother watches and many members were both shocked and outraged. Rightly so. Even by today's standards, this was cold and brutal to a level rarely seen so clearly. The man shot the boy like a rabid dog, with all the emotion that would carry.


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.

(Sarcasm) What a thoughtful murdering old fart. He didn't make it multiple homicide in the street because he feared hitting "innocent people". Awww..... Now that just makes me feel like he's got a warm and caring side, eh? (/sarcasm)

I call this another happy ending to a story that had nothing but tragedy and heartache. It should also be noted, the article indicates the Police did do a search of the victims home, just to check and no sign of the man's shotguns were ever found. The kid was one of the "innocent people" he blew away anyway.

I'd say he got what was coming to him, since execution wasn't apparently on the table for this one.

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.

Not to overly deviate but police related incidents such as these are all too common. Difference being, that the cop would have been cleared of any "wrongdoing".

Why would anybody riot about this? He got life in prison.

I didnt mean for the verdict but the act itself, this case was barely a blip on the radar compared to Trayvon.

I couldn't agree more about surprise over the lack of attention and outrage. It had a gun, a white shooter and a black victim. You'd have thought the media would have lapped it up like kittens to milk. No real controversy though, I suppose. No one could even play and pretend like there KINDA was a way to see it as justified, so no two sides to play against each other here.


The mean old bastard just shot the 13yr old kid, point blank, because he 'thought' he found a thief. I hope some of the inmates 'think' he stole something from their cells. It would truly be fitting, wouldn't it?
