  • "He was such a good boy...."

    OK, not an exact quote, but pretty close to what these people say every. time.

    Newsflash, lady: your son was not a good boy.




    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Family and friends of two teenage boys shot and killed inside a home they had broken into are speaking out.

    “They didn’t deserve to get killed,” said the sister of 14-year-old Michael Sambrano.

    He and his 16-year-old best friend were shot and killed on Sunday morning by someone inside a home the teens were breaking into. Police won’t say whether it was the elderly homeowner or her brother who shot and killed the teens who had just broken into their home.

    “They were on their way out the door, and I just think it was wrong that they were shot,” said Christina Sambrano.
    N.B.: Just exactly how do you know this, Christina? Were you there? Were you an accomplice?

    “He was not an innocent bystander,” said neighbor David Keck. “I’m sorry the little boys or teenagers were killed, but if it’s my family, my family comes first.”

    While family and friends admit the teens committed a crime, they wonder if dying for their mistake was the only answer.

    “I just don’t understand why they were shot multiple times and killed,” said Lisa Sambrano [mother of the younger teen killed].
    Lisa, the reason your son was shot multiple times and died is because he broke into someone's home for THE THIRD TIME IN THREE WEEKS. That's what happens to burglars. There was a real, REAL easy way for your son to not have gotten shot: don't break into a house.

    That's right. It was their third time to burglarize this same house since Easter morning. Good boy, indeed.
    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

    As long as it's just family and friends saying stupid stuff, it's understandable as a function of grief. A mother or a sibling has to wonder out loud if it wasn't possible to "shoot to wound" or something, anything other than what happened. I reserve indignation for the people who ought to know better, like "activists" , politicians, and attorneys.
    The year's at the spring
    And day's at the morn;
    Morning's at seven;
    The hill-side's dew-pearled;
    The lark's on the wing;
    The snail's on the thorn:
    God's in his heaven—
    All's right with the world!

      I stop excusing this when someone is a repeat offender. First time your preshus does a stupid? OK, I'll give the benefit of the doubt. This guy's mother, though? Sorry. She knew precisely with whom her son was hanging out. She knew her son was out pulling shit. She doesn't get to feign ignorance or innocence now, nor do his sisters nor his friends.

        It's not the only answer, but it's the one that came up at this particular time.

        That's the risk you take violating not just the law, but someone else's private property and presenting an unknown threat to a man defending his family from multiple thefts.

        The moral that should be learned here is if you're going to be a burglar, be sure to only break into the homes of the very liberal, because chances are they don't own guns. Some criminals get this, which is why they only break into uninhabited commercial establishments. The worst that happens is you get caught by the police and get three hots and cot for a while. (Or you get caught in the ventilation ducts and have to be extracted by the fire department first.)

        I'm beginning to assemble a cheat sheet for stuff like this. People say one thing, but mean another.

        "He's a good boy who didn't deserve this." = "He's a thug criminal who hangs with the wrong crowd, and I'm a bad mother."

        "Listen officer, I ain't gonna lie…" = "Listen officer, I am about to lie my ass off."

        "I don't know what happened at this crime scene." = "I'm too scared or indignant to tell you anything, but I was there and saw it all go down."

        "I don't know his name." = "Well, not his Christian name. But I know his street name and I'll make you work hard to get that out of me."
