Deputies: Teen boy killed in shootout with trooper; teen girl charged | Local News – WESH Home
WESH 2 Legal Analyst Richard Hornsby said the charges don’t seem to fit the crime.
“This might just be a case where it’s not appropriate to charge her. Clearly, an emotionally disturbed boyfriend and she was probably emotionally disturbed herself and he reacted in a way that probably wasn’t foreseeable to her,” he said.
Brevard is never concerned with whether the charges fit the crime. They’re concerned with appearing tough on crime.
Actually, Brevard is pudding soft on crime, particularly crimes committed by public servants who merely pretend to have apprehended actual criminals, and those that merely pretend that they’ve duly prosecuted an actual criminal, and those that merely pretend to have brought the gavel down on a just verdict. Brevard County likely has more framed innocents, per capita, than any other county in the nation.
Morgan McNeil is just 16 years old, and has obvious mental health issues … she was on a suicide mission.
She didn’t shoot at anyone. To prosecute her as though she did is a ridiculous waste of public resources, one that will ruin her life – if she survives detention in Brevard.
