Simply unbelievable. This attorney must have hailed from one of the most liberal law schools on the east coast.
The attorney, a former prosecutor, claims the store clerk who faced the armed robbers should have ran from the store or called police instead of using a gun to defend his life and that of other innocents present. This lawyer (are you listening Amavalise Jaramillo, you pathetic hack?) should be disbarred.
Dead robber’s widow sues shop clerk
Albuquerque, NM (KRQE) – The wife of an armed robbery suspect shot dead by a shop clerk said the clerk was wrong, and now she has filed a civil lawsuit claiming wrongful death.
The lawsuit was filed Tuesday on behalf of the Ramon Sedillo’s widow and child. Sedillo was shot and killed in October 2012 after police say he walked into Full Spectrum Smoke Shop armed with a gun and intending to rob the store.
Instead, the store clerk, Matthew Beasley, fired his gun at Sedillo killing him and injuring his 17-year-old alleged accomplice.Sedillo’s widow is now suing the store clerk saying he was in the wrong.
Sedillo’s attorney, Amavalise Jaramillo, the attorney for Sedillo’s widow, said it all comes down to who had more fault in the case.
While Jaramillo acknowledges the suspect’s role in what happened, he said Beasley shares more blame.
“He does bear some fault, but it’s like a pie. You divide out the fault accordingly, and Mr. Beasley could have done something different,” Jaramillo said.
The suit alleges surveillance video shows Beasley watching Sedillo and his accomplice getting ready to commit the crime. Jaramillo claims the clerk should have then called police or left the store instead of shooting Sedillo.
The lawsuit states the clerk decided to “ambush” the thieves.
