Justice not served in Smith case

To the Editor:

What is wrong with this picture? A man in Florida is acquitted of killing an unarmed teenager for walking on a street, but a man who killed two teenagers who damaged a man’s house to gain entry to rob him is sent to prison for life — a man whose mind had suffered irreparable damage by violent teenagers who had turned his home into their playground for thieving and destruction.

The overwhelming feeling of fear and anxiety can distort any normal person’s actions. Where is the justice? — Sue Kowal, Brainerd
