He didn't just voice Deker, he played him as well. Deker was in human form more often than his monster form.


Also, at least at first glance, this seems clearly a case of self-defense.

He allegedly murdered his roommate and such applies to all crimes. If the man did do it, my condolences to Sutter's loved ones and feel that Medina should be convicted.

If he didn't do the crime, I don't care what the evidence says, I feel that the police department should be sued (it might be easier if they became a wrongful conviction).

The above applies to any crime but I find it applies especially to the violent crimes.

Okay...I don't have anything to say other than that if the evidence finds him guilty, he should be sentenced to the maximum penalty possible.

Not a lot of information was given here (and understandably so, the investigation is still ongoing), but by the sounds of things, it could've been a self-defense gone bad.

I guess Power Rangers will have to be removed from Nick, Nicktoons, Netflix, Hulu, etc. until further notice (I'm NOT joking).

The problem with this that even if the evidence finds him guilty, it still could be that he's innocent. There are many cases where evidence may point to a person being guilty of a crime but later on there is evidence that actually clears them.

From what is stated in the article, clear self defense.

Richard did what any Power Ranger would have done in this situation...except the stabbing part, which led to a persons death.

Oh, yes...This is particularly true with cases involving circumstantial evidence. Even sadder is that the courts will often reject a convict's appeal even when there's abundant proof deeming him innocent.

I would respectfully request everyone refrain from vilifying Medina until we have more information. The skimpy report we have here isn't enough to say why this happened.

Agreed. Without data, we're just random people with keyboards.
