Good 'ole Austin Porter. Wasn't interested in a clear cut case of racial discrimination at a woman's shelter but by god right there if there is a chance at the city's pockets.

Sadly, the tragedy lives on in hopes someone will pay attorneys fees.

We need it written into the law that a person who is in the act of committing a crime is solely responsible for their injury or death

That's a damn shame. The punks were out stealing and one paid the price. Cops only have a second or two to make a decision whether it a right one or a wrong one.

Two thugs apparently trumps one police officer in a court of law.

Should of been locked up with the rest of the "thugs!" Glad to see this family get a bit of justice....not nearly enough though. When an officer is fired over a situation, he should also be charged and convicted. This guy took the law into his own hands and ended the life of a 16 year old kid. Shameful

LRDawg, there is a difference between violating administrative rules and the law.

If the kid had been at home doing his homework there never would have been a story. The mother should be arrested and convicted of neglect!
