In your opinion if a man fatally shoots an unarmed teenager in the face from three inches away, is 5 months in prison long enough?

  • well why did he shoot the teenager? If the teenager was breaking and entering his home the home owner has every right to shot. You just dont go "Hey robber are you armed?"

  • He also never bothered to call 911 even as the boy was bleeding to death, even though he had called 911 several times in the past for things like leaves blowing on his lawn.

  • He shot the boy on the street in front of his house. The boy never went to his door, or on his property.

  • His wife called 911. A group of 5 boys followed White son's home looking for trouble. I live on Long Island, followed the story.
    He told the boys to stop, but they didn't. It happened on Whites property! Boys didn't belong there!

  • UM NO WAY!! I don't understand the court system anymore. Someone kill another innocent person, but gets 5 months, but a man get robbed and brutally attacked and doesn't die, but gets 16 years?! That is rediculous!

  • His wife DID NOT call 911. It didn't happen on his property. The blood stains are out on the street. None on his property.
