    Tell me this isn't insanity

    The only thing that would be worse is if the attackers got off scot-free, which could happen in a Progressive utopia.

    STAMFORD — A Bridgeport man who was assaulted by three juveniles while he was at work in Norwalk will have to spend 18 months in jail for stabbing one of the attackers.

    “I was defending myself,” Jeffrey Sumpter, 21, told Judge John Blawie on Monday morning at the Stamford courthouse when he was sentenced for stabbing one of the males in the leg last October. Blawie told Sumpter that he understood and believed his version of events, but he said he had to follow the letter of the law.

    Sumpter, dressed in a white prison jumpsuit with short sleeves, did not reply. His public defender Howard Ehring said unlike a state like Florida, which has a law allowing its residents to stand their ground, Connecticut law requires Sumpter to retreat from the beating he was given at the Dunkin’ Donuts where he worked. After being assaulted inside the coffee shop, Sumpter ran outside and stabbed one of the men.

    AAAAAAH! After the deed was done stabbing one of the doers is a no-no.
    And Public defenders haven't got the reputation as really good attorney's.
    Time served would have been a good verdict IMO.

    Just wondering...what part of the last sentence is beyond your comprehension?

    After being assaulted inside the coffee shop, Sumpter ran outside and stabbed one of the men.
    He was not defending himself if he stabs some after he is assaulted. He became the aggressor and also used a deadly weapon.

    He is not "standing his ground" if the assault happens inside the establishment, is over and your hero grabs a knife and goes outside to stab somebody.

    This is really kinda basic stuff...

    It should have been regarded as a public service. If he'd managed to kill the POS it's next victim would have been spared their upcoming trauma.

    It'd be nice to move to a more vengeance based penal system for a decade or two... Clean the leftist ####bags right out of the population.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    The part I'm not understanding is where is the justice for Mr. Sumpter...I thought we were in an age of seeking justice...

    This is a leftie - hitting BACK is a crime. Attacking three to one isn't a crime, but hitting BACK is.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt
