CBS News – New York Gov. David Paterson commuted the sentence Thursday of a black man imprisoned for the racially charged shooting death of a white teenager on Long Island, a decision in the final days of his administration that infuriated the lawyer who prosecuted the case.

John Harris White and Governor David Patterson

John Harris White has been released from prison after serving 6 months for manslaughter & possession of an illegal weapon convictions. New York Governor David Patterson ‘commuted’ his sentence today.

John Harris White was set to be in prison for 2-4 years for shooting 17-year old Daniel Cicciaro in an attempt to protect his son, Aaron White.

Aaron had just left a party after being asked to leave for ‘posting online threats’ about a girl in attendance (found to be not true).

A ‘lynch mob’ or a large group of racist kids then showed up at the White’s house in the predominantly white Long Island neighborhood.

Daniel Cicciaro was driving with an alcohol level above the legal limit and was 3 inches away from the gun when he was shot.

His father, Daniel Sr. screamed “Let’s see what happens when Aaron White gets shot.” And that was when he thought John Harris White would serve 4 years in prison.

It was a tough decision and both sides have much to be sad and angry about.

Derrell Johnson showing love to Iowa fans.

Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz said “He’ll not play again here…he’s dismissed” in reference to talented wide-receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos during a teleconference call.

Derrell was suspended on Tuesday after he was arrested on possession of controlled substances, keeping a drug house, unlawful possession of a prescription drug and the complaint says “selling large amounts of marijuana”.

Derrell Johnson was the all time leader in catches and reception yardage for the University of Iowa. He was speculated to be in the first round of next years draft.

This drug arrest has jeopardized his chances of going in the first 2 rounds or even being in next year’s draft.

This is a real tough lesson. Hopefully he recovers from this and has a respectable career. He will miss a big bowl game in “The Insight Bowl” on Dec. 28, 2010 in Tempe, Arizona. He will be punished by his family, friends, and most importantly, the justice system.

The days of Derrell Johnson on the cover of Sports Illustrated are over for now.
