A New Myth: Criminals Using The Castle Doctrine.

Dauphin County District Attorney Edward Marsico on Pennsylvania’s Governor Rendell vetoing the extension of the Castle Law.


It came as a shock to me that scores of felons were abusing the Castle Doctrine in Florida. Nothing appeared in the news other than William Cervone, president of Florida’s Prosecuting Attorneys Association who is a bit pissed about the law telling him what to do instead of following what the legislature has written into the Florida Statutes. It doesn’t matter that felons that have applied for the Castle Doctrine as defense have failed miserably just as the first publicized case after the passing of the extension in Florida. Nine year old Sherdavia Senkins lost her life when dopers Leroy ”Yellow Man” LaRose and Damon ”Red Rock” Darling who decided to settle a discrepancy via guns. All the media announced the more than great chance that both critters would walk free because of the new law and that the murder of Sherdavia would go unpunished thanks to a legislature that bent over for the NRA and passed such evil law. Unfortunately for the naysayers, the conspiracy never congealed and both critters are serving time.
The opposition to any extension of the Castle Doctrine is nothing more that a protest by District Attorneys because they are forced to relinquish their power. That they can determine what is self-defense is a very powerful political tool that comes in handy election time. What a better way to garner media attention and this votes (double if you cater to a minority) than create and then get yourself involved in prosecuting a high profile murder case?
Remember, it is always about People Control.
