    How did they get Torrez’ phone number if they didn’t know the perps? Torrez attny stated that Torrez only knew one of the perps from his reputation but didn’t know any of them personally.

    Other than that question, it’s pretty cut and dry. He was defending his family against this vermin who came to his home that night, unprovoked. I don’t understand what moron in the DA’s office would consider charges against him. Mr. T actually did everyone a favor by taking out one of the thugs.

    The police should worry about getting the 4th thug in jail, he’s still running free.

    I hope Mr. Torrez and everyone in the home that night will stay safe. There are too many thugs and wanna-be’s looking to make a name for themselves in the form of retribution.
