The white racist murderer whose name you’re thinking of is Roderick Scott. He gunned down poor innocent black child Chris Cervini.
Scott claimed self-defense.
A Greece man charged with shooting a 17-year-old to death testified at his own trial Tuesday.
Roderick Scott told the court he shot Christopher Cervini in self-defense.
Scott is charged with manslaughter in the April 4 shooting across the street from his home on Baneberry Way in Greece.
Scott told the court he confronted Cervini and other person as they broke into a neighbor’s car. The other person ran away, but Scott said Cervini ran at him.
Scott already had his gun drawn. He said he told Cervini to stop, but the teen kept coming, so he shot him twice.
Of course, unlike the Zimmerman trial, this one was hushed up, because there are hundreds of black children killed by white racist gun owners every day. This is Scott’s crazy ass cracka story:
Scott said on April 4, he was sleeping on the couch, because he and his girlfriend had a disagreement. In the early morning he awoke and heard voices. He looked out the front door to see what was going on outside.
He testified he saw three individuals who were in his driveway, saw them walk out and cross the street, then walk up to a neighbor’s vehicle, pulling on the latch and handles of the neighbor’s truck. He then went upstairs, told his girlfriend Tracy that someone was breaking into a vehicle, and told her to call 911. He grabbed his pistol, for which he has a permit, “to protect myself” then went outside.
Scott said his intent was “to stop or detain the criminals,” not to shoot anyone. He walked down the driveway and over to 39 Baneberry Way. He saw one person standing on a sidewalk, and some rummaging going on inside a vehicle, which had the dome light on.
At that point, Scott testified he pulled his handgun out of the holster, and chambered a round. “I wanted to protect myself and I intended to,” Scott said.
He walked toward the individual, who started to walk away toward Manitou Road. He did not tell that individual to stop. It’s believed that individual was Brian Hopkins.
At this point, Scott was a foot or so off the sidewalk, and he saw someone rustling around inside the vehicle at 39 Baneberry. He testified he clearly saw two individuals. He drew his pistol and assumed the a shooter’s stance. “I didn’t know what I was up against, or if they were armed,” Scott said.
He told the individuals to stop, that his girlfriend had called 911, and that he had a gun. The individuals stopped, and a few seconds passed. Scott says the teens were talking, then one of them ran around the front of the truck. The other ran down the driveway toward him, screaming. Scott warned him he had a gun, then shot him.
He assumed the boy may have been armed.
“I felt if he got to me he would try to kill me or hurt me,” Scott testified.
Scott was found not guilty.
Just one thing. This is Roderick Scott:
But that’s only because while he was a black man, he only shot this poor black child who no one cared about:
Justice can never be done when crazy ass crackas like Roderick Scott walk free while honor student black children like Chris Cervini are shot down in cold blood, murdered only for the crime of defending themselves against racist white men like Roderick Scott who walk around their neighborhoods gunning down black children like Chris Cervini and claiming self-defense.
The law must change! Justice for black child Chris Cervini! Roderick Scott needs to go to jail and be tried for hate crimes like the white racist murderer he is.
Sarcasm over, this is actually in the story:
Cervini’s family members say justice wasn’t served. They say Christopher was murdered in cold blood, that he’d never been in trouble and Scott acted as judge, jury and executioner.
“The message is that we can all go out and get guns and feel anybody that we feel is threatening us and lie about the fact,” said Jim Cervini, Christopher’s father. “My son never threatened anybody. He was a gentle child, his nature was gentle, he was a good person and he was never, ever arrested for anything, and has never been in trouble. He was 16 years and four months old, and he was slaughtered.”
Scott says he acted in self defense when he confronted Cervini and two others saying they were stealing from neighbors cars. He told them he had a gun and ordered them to freeze and wait for police.
Scott says he shot Cervini twice when the victim charged toward him yelling he was going to get Scott.
“How can this happen to a beautiful, sweet child like that?” asked Cervini’s aunt Carol Cervini. “All he wanted to do was go home. And then for them to say, he was saying, ‘Please don’t kill me. I’m just a kid,’ and he just kept on shooting him.”
Cervini charged screaming at Scott in the middle of the night while Cervini and his two friends were stealing from people’s cars.
Could Scott have called the cops and waited for them to show up an hour after Cervini and his thug friends left? Sure.
Does Scott have a right to protect his property? Damn right he does.
Does Scott have a right to defend his neighbor’s property? Yup. Sounds like a good neighbor to me.
Does Cervini have a right to charge Scott in the middle of the night screaming, while in the middle of committing a theft? That’s at least menacing, and probably assault – even before he touches Scott.
Does Scott have a right to blast an attacker in the middle of the night in self defense, even though that threat turns out to be a thieving white kid? Damn right.
Do I care that Cervini was white and Scott was black? Nope. The only reason it matters is to prove a contrast to the racist left’s accusations against Zimmerman. It proves again, with colors reversed, the very concept of self-defense that allowed Scott to defend himself against what would’ve been not one but three white attackers. Cervini’s friends would’ve come to his aid and the story would’ve been “three white teens engaged in car theft kill black resident”.
Right now, with Eric Holder and leaders of the NAACP calling for a destruction of self-defense laws, they’re asking to put the law on Cervini’s side. They’re asking to put the law on the side of three white kids burglarizing a black man’s neighborhood, and terrorizing him when he comes out to defend his property.
They’ve ignored the facts of the Zimmerman case and glorified Martin as a saint and martyr for the cause of civil rights, when his actions – assaulting Zimmerman, actually proved Zimmerman’s superficial assessment of him as a “f*cking punk”. Martin’s assault led to Zimmerman’s response, just like Cervini’s assault led to Scott’s response.
Had Cervini tackled and beat Scott to death, the headlines would’ve screamed for the blood of Cervini and his white friends. Had Zimmerman been pounded into the pavement, Trayvon Martin would be paraded around as a thug who bashed the brains out of a Hispanic Peruvian-descended man who mentored black children, took a black girl to prom, saved a black man from assault in the past, and was thanked for it by having his skull smashed into the pavement – a neighborhood watchman whose only crime was looking out for his neighbors. The headlines would scream “Teenage Thug Kills Pillar of Hispanic Community”. Every day on Univision would show Zimmerman’s blood in the streets, and La Raza would be marching demanding justice.
Now Eric Holder has set up a tip line to go after Zimmerman.
The DOJ has declared war on pobre Jorge.
Sounds kind of like the witch hunt that imprisoned John McNeil, huh? (Note that link is from the NAACP.)
John McNeil served 6 years after he had to shoot a white man with a box cutter threatening him and his son on his property.
Last fall, a judge ruled that he deserved a new trial because his original attorney did not inform jurors they could acquit him if he shot in defense of his home or his son. Stand Your Ground can apply to the defense of someone else as well as himself.
Sadly, he pled guilty to manslaughter to get out of jail, which is nonsense, because he should be a free man completely.
The left’s take on the McNeil case wasn’t that justice wasn’t served, it’s that justice was just wrong, and that self defense needs to go away completely.
Civil rights activist Markel Hutchins agrees and has filed a federal lawsuit challenging Georgia’s stand your ground law because the law is not applied equally to African-Americans. He accuses the courts of accepting “the race of a victim as evidence to establish the reasonableness of an individual’s fear in cases of justifiable homicide.”
That wasn’t fighting for McNeil’s freedom, it’s fighting against the codification of natural law that should’ve left him free. Had leftist tyranny-supporter Hutchins instead pushed for McNeil’s defense, he wouldn’t have pled guilty to manslaughter, he would be a free man.
But of course, it’s about destruction of the natural right of self defense, not about justice. It’s not about protecting the individual black man, it’s about “racial justice” and leftist power and reducing the individual to a ward of the state. It’s about making individuals into masses who have a duty to retreat, into cowards who are legally obliged to not stand up for themselves. It lets their betters, who create this great new society, decide who is good and who is bad.
Ultimately, the question of self defense in many of these cases is a deeper ideological worldview expressing itself as a hatred for individual freedom. I’d say “as always”, but… well… okay, it’s as always.
Update: This examiner link confuses a quote with commentary:
The teen’s father described his son as a “gentle child, his nature was gentle, he was a good person and he was never, ever arrested for anything, and has never been in trouble,” as reported by the internet news portal YNN Rochester (of New York) on Dec. 18, 2009, as well as the right-of-center news portal The Patriot Perspective on July 17, 2013.
I quote the story – as seen above. Try CTRL+F and type in the word “gentle”. I don’t describe the thieving white kid as a “gentle child”. When not sarcastically mimicking the media’s coverage of the Zimmerman trial by taking the same tone where races were reversed and describing him as a “black child” and Scott as a “racist white man”, I describe the kid as what he was found in court to be – the attacker of Roderick Scott.
