A man who escaped the attack of a robber is now being charged with murder for killing the robber during the struggle.
The media harasses Mr. Stoddard.
A tow truck driver in Washington D.C. was in his truck lot when the robber approached and when he tried to run away, he tripped and fell. It was only seconds before the robber was upon him with gun drawn.
Driver Corey Stoddard, 35, was just going about his day when scumbag Lewis Crouch, 22, decided to rob the older man. It was his last mistake.
Reports say that Stoddard threw his wallet to distract the robber and then jumped into his truck. Then he ran the robber down with the vehicle. Robber Crouch died several hours later.
The tow truck driver admitted to these details but told police he was simply trying to flee a dangerous situation. But now he has been charged with second-degree murder.
Crouch has a long criminal record, of course. He has convictions for carjacking and spent 4 years in a youth facility when he was a teen.
The murder charge is way over the top, many feel.
But this is the America we are living in, folks. We aren’t even allowed to defend ourselves when attacked by criminals.
