No, because then the guy must be Denicos' brother and could have stared a hole through the guy's head. (It's very hard to push large vehicles over rough surfaces, like a ditch, any distance.)
sad as it is, two manslaughters do not justify a murder.
I'd never kill the dude--once he's dead, he's not feeling remorse (where I can see it, anyway). I'd blow both his nuts off, cap his knees, and put one or two through his right hand. He's not dead, I'm not going to prison (forever), and he's going to have to deal with being a nutless gimp the rest of his life.
Check this out. It's not the first time a revenge killing is committed.
Not only did he kidnap but apparently sexually abused him. The father was having none of that! (Shocking)
Your base premise of "take the law into your own hands is 'American'" is flawed. For the greater part of our history, our nation has more or less showed restraint and an interest in legal solutions prior to resorting to violence. Sure there are exceptions, but they are exceptions.
To answer your questions:
1. He in no way attempted to allow justice to take its course. He opted to be judge, jury and executioner. Not unlike that old guy who executed trespassers a few months ago. Next question.
2. He was in sufficient enough state to walk back to his home, get a gun, and shoot the other driver. Those are not reflexive, "heat of the moment" or reflexive actions. He removed himself from the scene and returned to the scene with an intent to kill. That is planned and premeditated. Murder 1.
Panic attacks don't cause people to walk extended distances to get a fire arm, return and kill.
Mindless chaos indeed.
"Leave the gun.....take the cannoli"
"It's not your job to be as confused as Nigel."
I hate the way that headline is written.
This is what has been overlooked here and is probably true. Considering it is a father taking immediate retaliation for the death of his two young sons, it will likely be a temporary insanity case, saying the emotion of the situation caused him to lose control of his faculties.
I think it's murder and it's one wrong added on to another wrong. I know it's hard to be rational when something like this happens, but there is no such thing as an impulse that an otherwise sane person can't resist. Either you are insane or you are sane. I mean where do you draw the line, a gang member killing another gang member in revenge isn't going to be considered temporary insanity.
I want to see all the details come out. All I know right now is that one person was incredibly stupid for plowing down 10 beers and driving. Another person didn't do the brightest thing by having his kids help push a broken down car with his wife and two daughters inside down a dark rural road.
i would've just choked him to death.
