CARNAGE ON THE STREETS OF HARTFORD BY JOY RIDING JUVENILES AND MURDERER'S
Although sources would not name the individuals because of their ages, I was told that the persons who are in custody for the homicide are believed to have been either passengers or the driver of the stolen vehicle that crashed on Sigourney street on Tuesday and severely injured a pedestrian
Sources also said that an arrest is likely soon, but that certain legal hurdles and jurisdictional issues have to be resolved first.
One issue is that authorities wish to charge the suspect as an adult due to the severity of the crime and the injuries, as well as the suspects somewhat extensive criminal history for a young age, now also including an arrest for a homicide.
This whole story and the incidents raise some very serious issues about the mindset of some Hartford youth. I am not sure how anyone could inflict the types of injuries as they did in striking and maiming another human being and leaving her laying on the sidewalk. How do you shoot an innocent person in the head and think nothing of it?
And how do other Hartford youth stand by and are more concerned about live streaming the severed leg and the carnage to Facebook than rendering any assistance to the victim until EMS arrive? Something is seriously wrong here and the depraved indifference for human life is disgusting. Even animals don't treat their own like this.
And the argument that they need to be treated as juveniles because their brains are not fully developed is nonsense. Even the youngest brain should know that it is wrong to steal a car and run someone down or to pull out a handgun to settle an argument and shoot someone in the skull.
Big boy court for this already a career criminal and let him now experience "big boy" prison where he will not be a threat to anyone, hopefully , for quite a few years. His victims deserve that justice
