Baltimore, MD - The president of a neighborhood watch group says he believes one of two brothers charged with assaulting a teen acted in self-defense.

Daniel Harris, president of Shomrim of Baltimore, testified Tuesday in the trial of two brothers charged with beating a black teen while patrolling for the Orthodox Jewish neighborhood watch group.

Harris says he met with Eliyahu Werdesheim the day after the incident. He says he believes Werdesheim acted in self-defense based on what he heard on the group’s radio transmissions and his conversations with Werdesheim and other members of the group.

Harris says Werdesheim told him he thought he hit the teen in the head while trying to take a board away from him.

The brothers have claimed self-defense.

The thing is, why was he trying to take the board away from him? This can be a deadly weapon. They should have stayed in the car and called police if they thought he was a dangerous person.

because the guy was atempting to use the weapon on him he had a choice to disarm the kid or get hurt , or as commonly know in this country as self defense first .and after the fact racism or assault . because thugs only try to attack people of another race, color or religion . for the record i dont know either party personally but i grew up in that hood .

Simple answer. They don't believe in Justice. They believe in PC law. Just ask Zimmerman in Fla. who is being prosecuted unlawfully!
