    He didn't do it? They had a picture from the ATM of him in action.

    If the victim had been armed and shot him, we would have another George Zimmerman case on our hands. The victim would have been well within his rights to defend himself even if was just Lamontay pushing and/or shoving him. If that had been me at the ATM, that young man would be in the hospital or at the morgue.

    OH MY I just saw the second picture and my goodness he is intense isn't he. Mad cause he got caught. He needs to stop "knocking over" people and try for store next time so they can really put him away.

    I kinda feel sorry for the guy, I mean look what his Mama did to him from the very start "Craigory" and both names ending in "Y". Gotta feel for the guy.

    Well, we do have this thing called the Constitution. But if they convict him he should spend a few years behind bars. Now if he had used a gun it should be life without parole. But pushing/shoving and stealing, maybe only ten to fifteen years. If his victim had been armed the whole problem could have been easily resolved. Step back, aim, a few rounds and one less criminal!
