Many may not like Super Dell. Many may consider him obnoxious. I would like to pose the following:
Regardless of how one may feel about Super Dell, we cannot ignore what is happening in our courts with him at this time. He stated ( & I agree wholeheartedly) that our court system is abusing the trust we have put into these officials, both police & court judges & officers. I have seen PLENTY of evidence to support this over the past few years.
I think that it was a tradgedy that (even though he was speeding) none of the people who harrassed, badgered & assaulted he & his daughter were ever charged with their offence! Furthermore, I would pose that many of us, if in a similar, threatening situation with our young children in danger, would have acted similarly in order to remove the multiple threats, and to try and extricate ourselves as quickly as possible from the situation.
The fact that only Mr. Sanchtzy?(unsure of proper spelling) was cited is a great indication of the prejudices out there concerning firearms. Was not Mr Sanchtzy feeling as threatened by the half dozen or more assailants, as they may have felt when he legally used his weapon in an attempt to get away from the MOB?
I think his case is definitely one which we should all keeep an eye on! Having been assaulted before myself, and having to have put my hand to my gun & warning the criminal to leave, I can certainly understand what may have been going through Mr. Sanchtzys' mind during this assault. His complication was having a young child there during the assault.
I feel we, in our community, owe him support as he wades through this trial, especially when we know that our courts are already crooked!
The only other thing I can say is, Super Dell--please learn to drive the speed limit, or at least drive a lot closer to it than you have done in the past. Life is too important for you & your family, to destroy your own, and their lives as a result of poor judgement while driving. You don"t have to drive at 100 mph to get everywhere you need to go. Thanks!
:D

Does anybody know what's going on with this now? It seems like it has been out of the media for some time. Where are we in the case?

The pre trial hearing was this last week. I am not sure when the trial date is.

He was interviewed on local news the other day. He was advocating the right to self-defense, which I completely agree with. I do wish we had a better spokesman for our cause, since he is rather obnoxious, and what the blazes was he doing speeding in a residential neighborhood?

I agree, Jeff. He comes across as some sort of whacko loose cannon who does not reflect well on the Utah gun-owning community. Most of the comments I heard during the early phases of this incident led me to believe that most people felt he was a nutcase.

That being said, I think it's going to be difficult separating his obnoxious personality (my opinion) from the legalities of the issue during the trial. I do not envy his attorney.

Where to start....Dell was approached by three men for speeding excessively down my street. After Dell trying to blow them off and saying snappy remarks to them, they did threaten to smash his lights with a rock. That was wrong on their part. Dell pulled a Glock and the police were called.

Dell is in trouble for two things. You cannot, in Utah, defend belongings or property with deadly-force unless there is a threat to you or a third party. Smashing a light is not grounds for shooting anyone. They did not threaten him or his child. Also, his past record. He has had 20+ citations for speeding and misuse of a weapon in the last 15 years. He has pulled a weapon, wrongfully, on several people in the past. The charges were also for wreckless endangerment and exploding a bomb of some sort in the city.

He is not by any means a "good example" of how an armed citizen should act. He gives all of us a bad name and creates havok in the media surrounding CCW's. It is our responsibility as permit holders to try harder to avoid situations which would prevoke trouble, not cause the situations.

He is definately entitled to his rights, but everyone needs to focus on WHY he is being charged. His past record of violent behavior, wreckless endangerment, and if it was really a life-threatening situation.

Just because he has a permit, does not mean he is an innocent person.

It's all Mens Rea, and for the court to decide. What was his state of mind during the incident? Did he feel his life or his daughter's life was under immediate threat?

I don't know that I would have responded at all in the same way.
