Well, the shooter is sure lucky this wasn’t a hate crime.
Disgusting. State attorney needs to be removed...with prejudice. He/She/It isn't looking out for the interests of the people or the law.
Patton was 17 when he was arrested in July 2010 on 14 adult charges connected to the shootings of nine people, all between the ages of 10 and 19.

Ah... those darn Irish ruffians strike again!
My father always said that the only difference between murder and attempted murder is that the victim didn't die. I don't know how seriously the 9 people in this incident were wounded, but we could be talking about a multiple murder case if things had gone down a little differently.
Mmm Mmm Mmm. He sho don’t look like Burt Reynolds!
Perfect example of just how broken the injustice system is. Every person he shot should have been an Assault 1st Degree case, and he should have gotten 25 to life for each count. Now he will be out before he is 23 and back to doing the same thing.
