Punishing the victim

Posted by Richard on July 9, 2010

Here's a local story I would have missed if it hadn't been for Sharp as a Marble (I'm tempted to link-leech his Rage-O-Meter):

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. – Admitted thieves are going free, while an elderly Wheat Ridge man is facing the possibility of spending the rest of his life behind bars, all, he says, for trying to defend his property and his life.

Here's the story in a nutshell: Back in February, two illegal aliens with lengthy criminal records stole a trailer from 82-year-old Robert Wallace. He saw them and ran out with his handgun to stop them. They tried to run him over, and he fired. One of the perps was injured. 

The Jefferson County DA has now charged Wallace with 12 felonies, including four counts of attempted murder. (How does shooting at two people, whatever the circumstances, result in four counts of attempted murder?) He could spend the rest of his life in prison. 

The two perps, one of whom is allegedly part of a "major auto theft ring," were let go and not charged with anything. 

Unbe-frickin-lievable. Does JeffCo DA Scott Storey think this is Great Britain? If you think this is outrageous, you might want to drop him a note about it.

  1. HI and thanks I would greatly appreciate the lawyer’s name that represented Wallace. Scott Storey has done the same thing to my son to the point of trying to commit suicide by and through the extreme injust “justice system”. Please repond,we desperately need help.

      Sorry, Kathleen, I don’t have a clue, and the link to the KDVR story no longer works. You might try Googling “scott storey robert wallace” (sans quotes) and checking the results. It brings up a bunch of stories about the case, and one of them might mention Wallace’s attorney.
