The Chron brought us an illuminating story this morning, in which the father of a slain pimp who was preying on a San Francisco teen says that while his son might have been a low-life dirt bag, that doesn't mean he should have been killed.
Charles Sneed, 53, spoke with the Chron after Barry Gilton, 38, a San Francisco Municipal Railway driver on disability, and 37-year-old Lupe Mercado were charged with shooting the Calvin Sneed to death. The DA claims the couple was upset that Calvin Sneed had been pimping their 17-year-old daughter, and took matters into their own hands.
“They became God for a moment. They didn't wait for the judge, the trial,
they did it right then and there in the street,” The elder Sneed said.
