Connecticut police arrested a 58-year-old man after he said he understood why Omar Thornton went on his shooting rampage at Hartford Distributors.
Francis Laskowski, of Derby, was charged with breach of peace on Wednesday after he made the comments to co-workers at Fusco Management Co. in New Haven.
Laskowski, who is currently out on bail, told reporters that his comments were “blown out of proportion.”
Come on people, lighten up! I heard Omar’s 911 call and you know what, I understand why he felt he had to do what he did. Does that mean I am going to do the same? No!
This is still America people; Laskowski has a right to express his feelings without threatening anyone. If Laskowski did not threaten anyone then he should not have been arrested.
