A man grabs his shotgun, loads it and then walks over to his neighbor and shoots him, during the confrontation the shooter shoots his own nephew and points the shotgun in a threatening manner, towards the neighbor's wife and all over alleged taunting over a perceived non existing affair.
The facts in this incident were never disputed or questioned. What is in question is the sentence the jury dolled out to Antonio Saldana, the convicted murder of Pedro Garcia, the individuals involved in this case. It seems the jury after finding Saldana guilty of murder decided to give him probation.
This makes me think, that we definitely need some sort of intelligence test for those picked for jury duty. How could any intelligent person give this killer, who not only chose to take a gun and confront a neighbor, but also again chose to shoot his own nephew and point a shotgun towards his neighbor's wife, probation?
The idea that just because this murderer had not killed before, he was given probation is ludicrous. How many instances, has some crazed killer gone on a rampage at work or some public place, and never showed any type of violence before going on said rampage?
Perhaps next this happens they should move the trial here to the valley and used the same thought, since they never did it before and everyone knew them as peaceful, they should just be let go without any punishment.
Again I definitely think we need an I.Q. text for any and all potential jurors.
