Man charged with reckless discharge over iPad sale gone bad

30-year-old Jesse Jay Cherrier of Cottage Grove, Minnesota had listed four iPads for sale on the Internet. He met a man who wanted to buy one of the iPads in the parking lot of a gas station around 11 o'clock at night in West St. Paul. The man took the iPad and ran away without paying for it. Cherrier chased him, but couldn't catch him so got into his SUV and tried to catch the man, shooting a gun in his direction.
Cherrier is a law abiding citizen and has a concealed weapons permit for the gun. He has been arrested and charged with reckless discharge of a firearm in a city. He was released after posting $5,000 bail.

  1. Wow, you talk about the negligent and reckless discharge of a firearm while totally neglecting the crime that underlies the issue.

    Why is that?

    Why not address the original criminal in this issue?

    If that criminal hadn't stolen the iPad, then the other criminal wouldn't have discharged his firearm.

    Are you pro-criminal as long as they don't use a firearm?
