A 69-year-old war veteran and former missionary was arrested over the weekend on the suspicion of killing a 22-year-old Cuban immigrant who mistakenly arrived in his driveway because of faulty GPS directions.

Gwinnett County jail records obtained by The Atlanta Journal Constitution indicated that Phillip Walker Sailors was charged on Sunday with the murder of Rodrigo Abad Diaz.

Friends who were in the car with Diaz told WSB-TV that they were trying to pick up a friend on the way to ice skating on Saturday but their GPS directed them to the wrong address. The friends said that they waited in the driveway for a few minutes before Sailors emerged from the house and fired a gun into the air...

...At that point, Diaz tried to turn the car around to leave, but Sailors fired another shot, striking the immigrant on the left side of the head. The group, which included a 15 and an 18 year old, said that Sailors held them at gunpoint until police arrived.

1. He Should Spent A Full Sentence In Jail For Manslaughter At Least -----

There should be additional charges that keep him in jail until he dies.

Driving while brown( or black) used to mean the police hasseled or worse.

Since the majority did not really care about that police practice now it only is getting worse.

Trayvon Martin just walking around should have woke more folks up

2. Paranoia and skewed judgment--often comes with beginning senile dementia or alzheimer's.

Going outside to fire a gun at a car in your driveway is not rational, and not self-defense.

3. When the first shot worked...

causing them to leave - he should have left it at that (still crazy- but not yet lethal)
