Two teenagers associated with the death of a 73-year-old get slapped on the wrist

| March 30, 2024 | 45 Comments

In 2022, a couple of teens attacked a 73-year-old with a cone. Video shows the old man attempting to get away from a few teenagers when one of them hits him on the head with a cone. The 73-year-old fell, got up, and tried get away from them. A second teenager picks the cone up and hits him on the head after he disappears from the video.  He was pronounced dead at the hospital. One of the teenagers was set free and the other was sentenced to time served plus house arrest. Seven teenagers were involved in this incident.

From The Daily Fetched

A group of teens who fatally beat a 73-year-old man with a traffic cone in 2022 have been “set free” with a slap on the wrist by a judge.

Per Philly Crime Update on X:

“Last month, Judge Barbara McDermott tossed the charges against the now 16 yr old boy,” the account explained.

“The teen girl, was sentenced to 5 years, with time served and released to house arrest.”

James Lambert Jr.’s niece called the outcome of the case a “slap on the wrist.”

She also stated Lambert was “a gem” in the city of Philadelphia.

Social media was set alight following the outcomes of the case.

“Why don’t criminals suffer any consequences for their actions?” asked one.

“If those kids were white they wouldn’t see the light of day until their 40th birthday,” said another.

The teen boy remained in the adult court system, while the girl’s case was moved to the juvenile court system.

Lambert’s niece, Tania Stephens, said:

“I am not pleased with the decision the courts made, and my family is not pleased as well.”

“They put out a light,” she later added.

The Daily Fetched and the Daily Mail provide more information on this story.

Life without parole. The fact that they’re young should not matter. It just makes the sentence hurt more, as it should.

I smell a long life of crime still ahead for these teens. Emboldened to do more and laughing this one off all the way.

Our justice system is a fucking joke. Death Wish will soon change lanes from fiction to documentary.

Hate_me

I see a very short life of crime ahead for these monsters.

Those who live by the traffic cone die by the traffic cone.

So, we can look forward to adding “traffic cone” to the TAH Book of Things Not To Bring To A Gunfight?
I certainly hope they repent beforehand, but they are good candidates for the ‘honor’.

Dear Judge

A Clockwork Orange was not supposed to be a ‘How To.’

I’m surprised they didn’t blame the construction/maintenance crew for not picking up all the traffic cones when the job was done.

When cones are outlawed, only outlaws will have cones.

Cones don’t kill people, people kill people.

Army-Air Force Guy

Common sense barricade control laws are needed.

Hack Stone

Did they at least earn their GED’s while in the Juvenile Justice System?

Anna Puma

They now have a Masters in buggery, thuggery, and murder.

I want to see a video where the 73 old draws a weapon,
pops the “teenager” wielding the cone, places the cone
by the body and calmly walks away.

KoB

The possibility of that happening is quite high, ‘beans. At the very least, we will see these murderous pieces of trash from hell in the news again. Either in a FGS, a SPoTW Thread, or just in passing where it’s the trash taking out the trash. There’s a trash taking out the trash FGS in the queue now, sent it in this AM.

A tragically classic example why we need to CC.EVERY.WHERE.WE.GO! And why we need to…Prepare

There was an incident at the Tucson mall in ‘97 or ‘98, some young punk tried to carjack a senior citizen that just wasn’t having any of that. Took 3 cops to pull the old guy off of the would-be thief. The old guy broke his cane over the clown’s head, then proceeded to beat him senseless with the remaining piece.

It’s a documentary, right?

Disney could do it like the old “True Life Adventures”, do an AI Rex Allen narration…

Philly…another Soros DA.

Resident Joe Biden declares Easter Sunday the Trans Day of Visibility, because celebrating the day Christ rose from grave is inconsequential to a devout Catholic. Joe is letting us know he really prays to the church of wokeness.

If the declaration is true (haven’t bothered to look it up because I am lazy), it smells like a Barry O. move, not a Joey B. one.

Everything over the past 3 years makes perfect sense if you assume it’s the 3rd term of Reggie Love’s fella.

SFC D

Joey B. Isn’t capable of making a move without Barry O’s hand up his ass making him move.

SFC D

Fuck Joe Biden.

We need more Animal Control officers on the streets.

Stereotypes exist for a reason.

And who will be to blame the next time those animals kill someone?
Just watch the liberals go batshit for MORE Gun Laws as soon as Vigilante Justice raises its head after a few too many people get more than a little pissed off.

Left/libtards call to ban AR-15s– we can’t have “oppressive” law-abiding people defending themselves from “social justice,” comrade!

A Proud Infidel®™

FUCK any and all compliance with “Social Justice”, that’s another reason why I live in deep Red State America!

Sadly, the best unanswered question.

Mexico or Slovakia ain’t better.

May the judge get every jot and iota of karma they deserve.

How would it be if a couple of lower 70s fellas
were to reciprocate?

Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord?

Deuteronomy 32:35
New King James Version
35 
Vengeance is Mine, and recompense;
Their foot shall slip in due time;
For the day of their calamity is at hand,
And the things to come hasten upon them.’

not to be confused with:

17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have[a] regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.

Ya’ know, sometimes I think those words were written for someone else.

If we can repent and be forgiven… load some double socks with pennies, smooth gravel or whatever and show some heathen the error(s) of their ways
