In China, the military massacres unarmed civilians . In the U.S., not so much.

Michael Sidney Guest Jr. shot Jamal Taylor above the right eye with a .38-caliber revolver on Aug. 8, 1993. The killing occurred during an argument among teenagers inside an apartment on Forest Park Avenue in Northwest Baltimore. Both Taylor and Guest were 15. But Michael Sidney Guest Jr. didn't spend a lot of time in prison. His case file is convoluted, but boiled down, it shows he served just five years behind bars for second-degree murder. Sounding a familiar refrain, court records show Guest spent his short life ricocheting from the streets to drugs to police to judges to prison cells - and back to the streets again.
