As the Revoving Door Turns (cont.)

From the Boston Herald:

A man notorious for serving just a few short years for the 1991 executions of two Boston children on a dare was arrested early yesterday after allegedly pulling a gun on his former brother-in-law.

Damien Bynoe, 31, pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon and was ordered held on $75,000 cash bail by Judge Edward R. Redd in the Roxbury Division of Boston Municipal Court.

"It’s been 16 years and he’s still getting into trouble,” said a disgusted Monique Taylor, 33, whose 11-year-old cousin, Charles Copney Jr., was shot dead by Bynoe in cold blood alongside victim Korey Grant, who was 15 at the time.


When he was 16, Bynoe was put in Department of Youth Services lockup for the shocking child slayings, which he allegedly carried out on the order of an Orchard Park gangbanger, Willie Dunn. Dunn was later acquitted of second-degree murder in the notorious case.

Charges were dismissed against a third youth, Tarahn Harris. After Bynoe killed Copney and Grant, he, Dunn and Harris treated themselves to pizza.

Judge Paul McGill, who issued the juvenile sentence, which was decried by many as a wrist slap, called Bynoe “an all-American boy who made a mistake.”

Allowing convicted murders to walk the streets with impunity and commit violent crime upon violent crime, with no regard for the law or the well-being of others.

Welcome to "progressive" America.

Of course, when asked to address the escalating problem of gang violence in his fair city, Boston Mayor Tom Menino continues to point the misguided finger of blame at the laws in New Hampshire, and other states, that allow for all law-abiding citizens to exercise their right to bear arms in defense of themselves and their communities, regardless of an individual's wealth or social stature.

Equality for all. What a novel fucking concept.

Too bad the liberals running Massachusetts - empty, feel-good rhetoric notwithstanding - are incapable of adhering to such a radical principle.
