    My faith in the local citizenry is restored:

    Too much protection offered to criminals

    Stanton Moretti was out with his wife at a pizza parlor Feb. 22. In the parking lot, his wife was attacked by a knife-wielding robber. When she broke free, the attacker ran and Moretti chased him down in his truck and ran him over. Moretti defended his wife from a potentially deadly attack and made Fayetteville a safer place for everyone.

    Evidently, the law doesn’t see it that way. Somewhere along the line, our lawmakers decided that violent criminals are an important part of our constituency in need of protection. Stanton Moretti, a true hero, is facing murder charges.

    When a violent criminal attacks an innocent victim and then runs, he is not only a threat to the immediate victim, he is a threat to the entire community. I doubt the attacker was running to find help getting rehabilitated.

    Like alligators in Florida, when you protect dangerous predators, they multiply and take over.

    I have no problems with the police who are professionals just doing their jobs.

    Those who represent our interests in Raleigh should pass a law which states, “when a violent criminal attacks an innocent victim with a deadly weapon, we have the right to stop them by any means necessary.”

    Thank you, Mr. Moretti. May your jury be sympathetic.

    So many things wrong with that I don’t even know where to start…

    But I’d at least like to point out his ‘analysis’ of the alligator population in Florida is fascinating, although pretty inaccurate.

    There are plenty of people out there that know Mr. Moretti personally who would say they are not surprised by this turn of events in the least. I have heard people say they are surprised it took this long for him to snap. He is no angel and fayetteville should be glad to have both Mr. Moretti and Mr. McLeod off of the streets. Perhaps some of the illegal activity that runs through his tattoo parlor will now stop too. Certainly Mr. Moretti and his wife will not be able to make customers feel so threatened by their fighting now and he will not be free to expose himself to women under the guise of showing off his piercing. Mr. Moretti was fond of saying what goes around comes around, I suppose it was finally his turn.
