    Fred Yazdi found guilty of murder |

    Im not just saying this because it was a good buddy's son who got murdered, but I think the jury handed down the right verdict or guilty...Justice served IMHO.

    W/O knowing anything about the case, and you being friends of family

    Was the kids a punk?

    I know his father better and regardless, an upstanding family. Kid was "drunk" when he crashed and presumably knocking on doors for help, bot never in trouble otherwise. Def not a punk kid. Also, no weapon at all. Yazdi, who has a Hx of threatening neighbors with his guns and also pacing his property line with a shotgun, was described as a murder waiting to happen. Theres a fair amount of info in the write up on the case in the link I attached but bottom line, he shot the kid, Enrique Recio while he was yards away, running away from him. There was no physical contact with Yazdi or his I said, bad shoot in my opinon and thats just from a CHL holder standpoint.

    I haven't followed this closely. I need to read more about it to form an intelligent opinion.

    From all I have heard about this case it was the right call. If people use the castle doctrine to get away with these kinds of shootings it is going to end up ruining the chances we will still have the castle doctrine when one of us needs to legitimately use it.

    The jury got it right. Yazdi was a bully and and frequently threatened his neighbors. He tried to intimidate witnesses scheduled to testify against him most importantly, shot a fleeing kid who wasn't even on his property. There was no evidence the kid was in any way a threat or had attempted to steal or vandalize Yazdi's property.

    I live less than a mile from the scene...almost bought a place right across the street. It's pretty odd to drive by and (recently) see him sitting in his garage with the door open...just hanging out. Still parks his vehicles in the common driveway...strange.

    +1 to the last 3 replies.... my point in all of this was not that it was a sons friend as much as Yazdi incorrectly invoked the CD...he wasn't defending anything except his bravado...

    this is most of what I see that really goes against him. Not only did he shoot the guy fleeing, but he wasn't attacked or threatened.

    What the hell is wrong with some people?
