A 30 year old man, dealing with a 15 year old teenager? Sounds to me like we might need to look into the history of this "young boy". If this was just a innocent teenager, then the grown man is certainly an animal.

But, if this "young boy" was a dope, dealing, gangster, thug, who packs up on people. Then he was have just, more then likely, a " crack-head", maybe defending himself.

"Extensive criminal record".......lock him up one more time and throw the freakin' key away. He need not ever see the light of day again!
