STAND YOUR GROUND:  If you weren’t concerned about Stand Your Ground laws, then you may change your mind after reading about a white Georgia homeowner, Philip Sailors, fatally shooting a Hispanic man, Rodrigo Diaz, who was simply turning in his driveway.  Philip Sailors got no jail time, just probation and he didn’t even apologize to the family of the slain man.

GWINNETT COUNTY, GA– A Gwinnett County man accepted a plea deal Monday for the fatal shooting of a man, who mistakenly pulled into the wrong driveway.

Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh was in the courtroom as Philip Sailors plead to the misdemeanor charge for the January 2013 shooting in Lilburn.

Channel 2 Action News broke the news Friday about the plea deal which reduced a murder charge to the misdemeanor charge of involuntary manslaughter and spared the homeowner any jail time.

People Kavanaugh spoke with were surprised that Sailors made no statement and offered no apology to the victim’s family during the hearing.

Rodrigo Diaz, the victim’s father, told Kavanaugh in Spanish he wasn’t expecting anything today.

Investigators say GPS misguided Rodrigo Diaz to the wrong house that night. Diaz was trying to get to the home across the street so he could pick up a friend to go roller-skating. When Sailors saw the strange car, he came out shooting. He fired once into the air.

Investigators say the second shot went through the window and struck Diaz in the head.
With his guilty plea Sailors will serve 12-months’ probation and pay a $500 fine.

[…] After the hearing, Diaz’s father, Rodrigo Diaz Senior. told Kavanaugh that Sailors could have received a stronger punishment, but he believed that would only end up destroying two families.

Here’s more on Philip Sailors’ slap on the wrist:

Report: Michael Brown Shooting Occurred in Less Than 90 Seconds

The St. Louis Post Dispatch is reporting that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson’s encounter with teen Michael Brown lasted less that 90 seconds. There was also video footage of Darren Wilson leaving the police station en route to a local hospital two hours after he gunned down the teen, who was a suspect in a strong arm robbery at a convenience store.

Here’s more from St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

At 11:53 a.m., a dispatcher reported a “stealing in progress” at the Ferguson Market. The 911 operator was still talking to the caller in the background. In a second broadcast, 19 seconds later, the dispatcher says the suspect is a black male in a white T-shirt running toward QuikTrip,and had stolen a box of Swisher cigars.

About four minutes later, there’s more detail: the suspect is wearing a red Cardinals hat, a white T-shirt, yellow socks and khaki shorts, and is accompanied by another man.

At noon, Wilson reports that he’s back in service from the sick-baby call. He then asks the officers searching for the thieves – units 25 and 22 – if they need him. Seven seconds later, an unidentified officer broadcasts that the suspects had disappeared.

At 12:02 p.m., Wilson says, “21. Put me on Canfield with two. And send me another car.” His call triggered at least two officers to head his way, including one who said he was close to Wilson.

Ferguson, Mo., police chief says if Darren Wilson is not indicted for Michael Brown’s shooting death, he will immediately return to active duty.

Army Vet Francisco Garcia Fatally Shot at Homecoming Party in Sylmar

GUN VIOLENCE: Army veteran Francisco Garcia, 22, was shot and killed at a homecoming party thrown for him at his girlfriend’s home Saturday night in Sylmar, Calif.

Police say Garcia had returned home from Afghanistan about two weeks ago. Los Angeles Police Dept. Lt. Paul Vernon said, “The ironies are obvious. To survive as a soldier in an overseas confict, only to be killed in your old neighborhood upon your return.”

Lt. Vernon said apparently Francisco Garcia was the intended target of the shooting, which occurred in the 13000 block of Dronefield Avenue. He was gunned down as he stood on the sidewalk after the party moved outside.

A Hispanic man exited a dark SUV, smashed a beer bottle on the ground and shouted at Garcia from across the street, the news release states. The man then retrieved a handgun from an occupant in a white car, possibly a Toyota or a Honda, and then fired on Francisco Garcia, who was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Vernon said, “It appears Francisco was the target of the attack” that may have stemmed from a “simmering dispute” that had “boiled over during the night.”
