Gregory Floyd has a curious way to establishing that he would never have threatened to shoot and kill his neighbor: he starting swinging his cane and swearing at everyone in a New Hampshire courthouse. Floyd recently was cleared of wrongdoing in killing a man who shoot a police officer.
An ex-Marine with an obvious tempter, Floyd, 49, was found guilty of threatening to shoot Alma Jean Boisvert. Boisvert recently secured a restraining order after an encounter with Floyd on a narrow road near their homes. She has asked Floyd to pull back a little on the one-lane road, but he refused and threatened to pull a gun. Prosecutors want a yearlong sentence, with six months in prison and six months suspended.
Given such a recommendation, it would have been wise to avoid such things as attacking police and prosecutors with a cane and yelling like a madman in a courthouse. But that is just me, I tend to be overly cautious on sentencing issues.
