I don't understand the use of the term "African-American." I understand your (& theRead More police departments') desire to use a shorthand description of his appearance, but use of this term implies that the person is of African ethnic origin but an American citizen. How do we know his citizenship? What if he is African from Senegal? Or African-Canadian? Or African-French? Or Half-African/Half Japanese? What's wrong with the shorthand term "black" - as used by all my "African-American" friends and relatives? Are you afraid of non-political-correctness?

Why the autopsy since he was electrocuted?
Amanda LaRosa July 19, 2014 at 05:50 pm
As is the case in so many matters, how he came to contact the 'hot' (charged) wire(s) could have aRead More bearing on liability. For example, the victim could have had a heart attack, fell onto the wire and as his weight caused the wire to disconnect from its source (with electricity still flowing through it from the other end's connection) he touched the wire as he fell or slumped. In this scenario there is no negligence, only a tragic accident. In another scenario, the scaffolding could have been constructed in such a way that pressure was placed on the wire, causing it to disconnect and come into contact with the scaffold, making the victim's electrocution a matter of negligence on the part of whoever constructed the scaffold. Note: These examples are provided only as an illustration of why it may be important to establish the victim's health at the time of injury.

RWO, ridiculous comments as no one knows the cause of the accident yet. Blind loyalty to unionsRead More such as your comment suggests is one of many reasons behind the decline of unions in this country. Plenty of work injuries and deaths with Union shops controlling job sites....some even leave their victims in pylons holding up bridges...
Janie D. July 22, 2014 at 06:59 pm
imcjl...I could not agree with you more! As if electrocution doesn't occur on union projects asRead More well...just because its...Union. RWO has no idea of how "cheap" the labor for this effort may or may not have been, or any other information that NONE of us are privy to as yet. So in light of the circumstance itself, I would say this was a project that was extremely costly indeed with one young man losing his life while trying to make a living in this economy, and another fighting for his. Prayers to the families of both...and hopes that THEY get some real answers very soon!

His innocence was finally proved. I used to be for the death penalty but now I'm not. Our judicial system is broken. I'm not a bleeding heart liberal, actually I'm very conservative on mostly everything except this. I think appeals should be stopped. Go to jail, stay there FOR LIFE! Death is an easy way out!

This whole story is very tragic and horribly sad. After reading this article, it sounds as if thisRead More son has a serious jealousy issue regarding his parents love and his other siblings. I hope we will learn more about his motives as the story unfolds. In reality, jealousy is a very strong and negative emotion. As we just witnessed here, it is capable of killing an entire family (physically and emotionally). Just so sad...
