Here’s another case of the official story misses the actual story.
North Tryon patrol officers responded to an A/D/W (Assault With a Deadly Weapon) call in reference to a subject shot in an apartment complex parking lot. When officers arrived on scene, they located a male subject in the parking lot suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was pronounced deceased by Medic at 3:43am.
I know that a dead guy after a shooting sounds like the story, but trust me it isn’t.
Look at his one criminal conviction. He was convicted in November of last year for “Discharging a firearm into an occupied property, causing serious injury,” a Class E felony. According to the structured sentencing guidelines (PDF) he was supposed to get 20-25 months in prison for a first offense of this magnitude. That sentence could be increased to 25-31 months or mitigated to 15-20 depending upon the circumstances of the crime.
Read the criminal record again and see that what he actually got was 36 months on probation.
The real story here is that pretty much no matter what criminals do, they don’t get punished in this state.
