Wow, what a faimiliar refrain.

"It was someone else's fault!"

Jurors handed a 25-year prison term Friday to a repeat offender who shot his ex-girlfriend in the face two years ago, then married her several months later.

“I had no control over anything, so I guess this is where God wanted me to be right now,” he told the jury. “I feel I was never that bad. ... I'm just in the streets. The environment I'm in is gang-infested. It's just where I live.”
I guess the gang members made Josephus Duncan shoot his now-wife in the face. Sucks for him that he lived in a gang-infested environment, but not everyone falls to the siren song of the gangs. But at least now he has 25 years behind bars to shirk personal responsibility.
