    The dude was shot IN the yard... the retards brought him along, and dumped him.

    Do yourself a favor, and read thru. I quoted you twice anyway.

    Hmmm... as I read the Old Testament, God is not a liberal, at least after dark:
    Exodus 22.

    Don't know but too many states have too lax criminal laws and too lax sentencing guidelines.

    The article I read said that a knife was found on the ground near where the teenager was shot. If that was what he had in
    his hand when he advanced on the old man, then he was justified in shooting him.

    yeah, the law was designed for when a innocent bystander is killed because of their actions, not when one of the criminals is killed, this is a definite misuse of the law imo

    In California the entire judicial system has gone into the crapper.

    A question for the liberals here.

    It's night in Chicago. (Is it true in Chicago that on Saturday night in some areas you can open the window and will hear gunfire within an average of twelve minutes? Probably fake news).

    Anyway, you hear a noise outside, step out of your door, and find five young Black males preparing to steal your car. (Okay, let's not be judgemental. Maybe they were just admiring it and saying to each other, "I'm gonna work so hard in school that I can get me a job and earn enough to buy one of these!" Anything's possible.)

    And, sorry, but each of those adjectives is statistically relevant when your brain does an instant assessment of how much danger you're in: if it had been two elderly white women, you would probably have had a different outcome to your calculation.

    One of them comes at you, with an 'object' in his hand... might be his mobile phone and he's going to ask you to ring his social worker, might not.

    Hard to see in the dark.

    What do you do?

    Also: what do you think should happen to that vicious white supremacist who shot that poor innocent child? [His punishment should be tempered by the fact that his victim's name will now become immortal, as it will be tearfully invoked alongside Michael Brown's in a "Wish You Were Here" invocation at the approaching Democratic National Convention.]

    As in
    ""At least one of the male subjects advanced toward him with an unknown object in his hand," officials said in a release. "The homeowner feared for his life and discharged a firearm.""

    FYI. They only began sending convicts to Australia after the American revolution ended their sending them to North America. Everyone remembers the convicts sent to Australia, 75000, but conveniently forget the 65000 sent to North America.

    They're charged with that because of the felony murder rule which requires someone actually die.

    We don't do precrime. No.

    The first rule is that when a guy pulls a gun on the bad guy is that he should immediately shoot him. That rule is demonstrated in every movie that has guns.

    Again, I understand how the law is written, I don't agree with it, because there was no murder.

    Laws are tricky.

    *shrugs*

    I'd settle for manslaughter.

    Again I agree, the criminal was killed in the act of physical threat, no issue with me on that. But to wholesale charge all with murder, is as you say, misuse, as I, overkill, no pun intended.

    TBH they use enhancers as a deterrent.

    Doesn't work.

    Best deterrent against gangs, is an armed citizenry.

    Yeah maybe, but one could easily see, intent to murder, and that would seem more pliable, IMHO.

    Murder doesn't require intent.
