Man Kills Neighbor in Dispute Over Pet Birds

We human beings don’t always agree, do we?  And when our disputes become “unsolvable” without a third party, our court system steps in to lend a hand.  Unfortunately, not soon enough in the case of David Giordano, a man from Camden, NJ who was recently sentenced to eight years in prison for the stabbing death of his neighbor (Michael Taylor) due to a dispute about his pet birds.

Giordano lived in a condominium unit above Taylor, who kept his birds on his porch. Prosecutors say Giordano poured water on the birds because they were chirping too loudly. Giordano then repeatedly stabbed Taylor with a knife when Taylor confronted him. Taylor died from his injuries nearly three weeks later.
