Man gets 4 months in jail for shooting cyclist in the head.

Charles Alexander Diez, the former North Carolina firefighter who shot cyclist Alan Simons in the head, has been sentenced to four months in jail.┬áDiez pled guilty to shooting Simons during a July 26 roadside confrontation. Said to be upset that Simons was riding his bike with his 3-year-old child, Diez fired his .38 caliber pistol as Simons walked away after the two exchanged words. The bullet struck Simons’ bike helmet, narrowly missing his skull. So let me get this right, you can get years for abusing animals but you can shoot a cyclist and get a slap on your wrist? Wow, just wow. Story via StreetsBlog.
