When he kicked in that door and leveled that gun, Joe Sutton had the right to defend himself.

Of course, the police wanted him for some outstanding warrants against him, so it didn't surprise me he didn't voluntarily show up to the courthouse.

The physical evidence shows that Joe was crouching down, trying to provide cover fire, as he testified.

In 27 years of practice, this is a first for me.

This was a tragedy that divided a family.

There is absolutely no question about the sheer brutality of this act.

Given the drugs (Lewis) had taken and his propensity for violence, it made sense that Joe took a gun with him.
