    Teen killed by LEO, mental thought process of family

    Teen killed by off-duty deputy was on house arrest

    06:31 PM EDT on Wednesday, October 25, 2006

    Reported by: Craig Civale
    The teenager killed Monday night in a confrontation with an off-duty Portsmouth Sheriff’s deputy was supposed to be on house arrest in Chesapeake.

    Records indicate 15-year-old Eric Corbett had a violent criminal past.

    Instead, Corbett had a gun at Victory Crossing Shopping Center and tried to carjack the deputy, authorities said.

    "Eric wasn't supposed to leave the house. My daughter notified Chesapeake that he left and they said he would be back because it was cold, but Eric did not come back," said his grandmother, Altheia Downing.

    Eric Corbett was on house arrest when he was killed Monday night.

    She had the monitoring system that went off Monday after he left.

    Police are investigating the gun they say Corbett used that night, which had been stolen from a home in Cavalier Manor earlier in the day.

    "We're fairly sure that the gun used was the gun taken. Wether he actually took it or not, it's not know at this juncture," said Commonwealth’s Attorney Earle Mobley.

    Mobley confirmed that two weapons, including the deputy’s gun, were taken from the scene.

    Only the deputy’s gun was fired.

    Corbett was hit four times, according to an autopsy report.

    The agency that monitored Corbett’s house arrest device wouldn’t confirm whether it tried to track the teen after the alarm sounded.

    Mobley, meantime, confirmed there was a second suspect at the carjacking scene, but the person has not been charged.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Some family comments reported on the TV news:

    1. He was just like any other kid, he got into some trouble but nothing like this.

    Are all other kids on house arrest for violence?

    2. The Deputy that shot him was trained, TRAINED! Why couldn't he just shoot him in the arm or leg?

    3. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    And apparently, doing the wrong thing, to the wrong person!

    Just a matter of time till he got whacked.

    The Deputy just spared someone else the trouble.

    Well, since the family couldn't do their job, the deputy did his. Sounds like good news for society to me.

    This is just sad for everyone involved.
    The Deputy did what he was trained to do.
    Still....sad.

    i missed the news on this...I love it when they say he was just a kid. (A kid with a gun pointed at you), the family left that part out. And since the deputy was trained he could have just shot him in the arm or leg (and pray to God he doesn't shoot you back).

    .....or the crotch. He couldn't reproduce, and he'd still be alive. Sounds good to me.

    Hammering the thinking of the family members (by the reported 'facts') ...

    Teen killed by off-duty deputy was on house arrest
    Age has nothing to do with it, of course. His criminal actions do. Citing him as a "teen" caters to the anti/left mindset for no reason other than that.

    Police are investigating the gun they say Corbett used that night, which had been stolen from a home in Cavalier Manor earlier in the day.
    Another instance of more bans and laws not precluding access by motivated criminals.

    The agency that monitored Corbett’s house arrest device wouldn’t confirm whether it tried to track the teen after the alarm sounded.
    Shows what a resounding deterrent those damned things are.

    1. He was just like any other kid, he got into some trouble but nothing like this.
    No, momma, any other "kid" would not do the things he did. Little johnny was a criminal. He was acting like an adult, doing adult crimes: he got an adult response.

    3. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    "Just?" Implying that this was the mistake he made. It was certainly indicative of his stupidity. In point of fact, place and time don't mean much here. He was a criminal engaging in a criminal act. That was the offense. That's what was wrong.

    Got to love over-weening family members who try so hard to justify someone's actions when it becomes known he/she is the criminal they all feared. IMO, it's a good indication that the social environment he grew up in was a huge contributing factor.

    A shame that he chose, instead, to cut his life short.

    Lots of ways to go with this one. It's sad when someone young gets killed.

    But the rest of what the family had to say is just hogwash, regardless of their worth as parents (sometimes baaaad kids come out of good parenting...not often, but some of our fellow human beings just emerge from the womb with a screw loose).

    If you try to carjack someone and you get shot, that's pretty much what should happen.

    The Deputy that shot him was trained, TRAINED!
    Obviously, he scored 4 hits.

    +1 on that. Crininals are criminals regardless of age. In this instance the saying "Life is hard, but it is harder if you are stupid" seems appropriate.

    15 might be technically ''juvenile'' but a kid that age knows right from wrong, or should. By that token, doing wrong means cognisance of consequences too.

    Sorry - the comments are just in the category of typical rhetoric we hear so often and in effect are IMO damning of the family - if they have those attitudes then maybe we can see in part why the kid was travelling the route to eternity. Typical sadly of so many.

    sorry the Deputy had to do it (for his sake), and happy he survived. He shouldn't give it a second thought, but I bet it will bother him. The bg's family will probably sue; they should be arrested for having such a useless #$%#&... A great argument for retroactive abortion....

    Sad?
    I disagree.

    I am not sad for the removal from the biosphere of a violent criminal who not only had done things to warrant punishment before, but was in the process of doing further violent things.

    I am glad for the fact that such a threat is no longer present on the planet. It BENEFITS society when such a threat is removed from our midst -- it is one less violent threat for the public to be worried about.

    His family? Sure, they're sad. They probably loved him despite all his violent scumbag criminal flaws. He was theirs. But he was not mine. He was not the deputy's. In fact, if you want to talk about sad, think of the deputy's wife and kids, and their sadness if he had been taken from them by this miscreant. Think of their sadness and stress now, knowing that he had come so close to a violent death at the hands of this criminal.

    Before I would go and be sad for the kid's family, I would ask what they had failed to do to gain control of him, or to raise him right in the first place. They bear some culpability, I'm sure.

    Society won yesterday. It's not a sad day.

    It's too bad the deputy can't sue the kid's (and by kid I mean thug) parents for not doing their job. Then maybe parent's would start being accountable for their children.
