    Robbery Suspect Charged With Murder

    [​IMG]

    In this photo released by the Lake County Sheriff's Department is Renato Hughes Jr., 21, of San Francisco. Three young black men broke into a white man's home in a rural Northern California county. The homeowner admits to shooting two of them to death, but it's the surviving black man, Hughes, who's scheduled to face a murder trial Thursday Nov. 15, 2007 in Lakeport, Calif.

    They were wrong for breaking in that mans home--but I'm not sure he should be charged with murder--I dont think that is befitting. He should take all of the charges associated with breaking and entering, burgerly, etc...but not murder.

    Nobody is defending criminals, Oldiesman. :nono: The offender should be charged with burglary, but first degree murder is exuberant and a charged that is rarely, if ever, used in a case such as this. The point is "Lady Justice" is not blind and her scales are not calibrated. There are two sets of rules in this country for two different people. Always has been. What white folk can get away with Blacks can not. How often is this section of the penal code ever used in similar situations such as this? Almost never. Nobody can tell me if this perp was white the district attorney would charge him with 1st degree murder in addition to burglary. The "law" perpetuates double standards against Blacks regarding matters of civil and criminal offenses, punishment and sentencing. That's the point. This system looks for any minor detail to charge Black people with an offense that is normally overlooked or unenforced.

    Two men walking down the street, one Black one white. Both men step in a crack in the sidewalk in the presence of a cop. The Black man gets a citation while the white man gets a verbal warning.

    Long time Mad Skillz.. :)

    "Hughes was charged with first-degree murder under California's Provocative Act doctrine..
    ...The Provocative Act doctrine does not require prosecutors to prove the accused intended to kill. Instead, "they have to show that it was reasonably foreseeable that the criminal enterprise could trigger a fatal response from the homeowner," said Brian Getz, a San Francisco defense attorney unconnected to the case."


    :?:

    The man should be charged with the crimes he committed - not a "foreseeable" hypothesis..

    It's acts like the one above we should fight against. Brother Mad Skills made an excellent point on whats wrong with this picture. Justice is supposed to be fair and just. Where is the fairness in this?

    Agreeing with this is like agreeing our Ancestors deserved to be enslaved. If they wasn't roaming the gardens of Africa, perhapes they wouldn't have gotton caught by the white men who enslaved them. For those who were paying off a debts by offering labor for x amount of years to their debtors, I guess it's their fault too? Afterall, repaying a debt to the one you owe should change your statues of a servant to slave? They shouldn't have been in debt in the first place.:confused:

    That man deserves to be punish for the crime he committed. Murder wasn't that crime.

    Another example of this law: If an overweight and out of shape police officer chases after a fleeing suspect and has a fatal heart attack as a result, that suspect is not only charged with fleeing and whatever other crime he committed, he can also be charged with murder. That is because his action caused the death. That's the law and I have seen it applied. I don't know if I agree with the case that is the subject of this thread however. With all the commotion over various criminal activities involving black suspects, some of those "stacked" charges might be dropped.

    I have to agree with oldiesman, we have to stop defending criminals just because they are black. We should banish them instead. A black criminal should be the loneliest person on earth.
