Police called Timothy Pastuck a hero after the Queens, New
York, man came to the aid of a neighbor being savagely beaten with a
baseball bat and steam iron by her boyfriend. Pastuck retrieved his
unlicensed .22 cal. Ruger rifle and ordered the batterer to stop,
and when the man refused, he shot him three times, wounding him.
Despite the accolades from the public and law enforcement, Pastuck
was initially charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly
weapon and unlawful possession of a weapon. After 14 hours in jail,
the first two charges were dropped. Pastuck then spent 2 1/2 hours
in court where the district attorney finally decided to drop the
weapons charge. "You try to do the right thing, and the next thing
you know you're in the system...I don't know what they want; people,
citizens, to react, don't react," said Pastuck.
