One homicide sentencing, two different views

Today’s Comment of the Day comes in two parts from the recent sentencing of Aljava Gaither.
Gaither received a sentence of 12 years for the killing of Craig Fitzgerald in a case portrayed as a personal dispute between the two men over $10.
On our recent story about the sentencing, the following comment was left by a reader with the screenname delham:

Keep your head up Mr. Gaither. Do your time, get our early.
Anyone who examines the situation can see you acted in self defense.”

A different view of the case was written, however, when we posted a link to the story on the Homicide Watch Trenton Facebook page:

They should of gave him life like he took a life.”
