It was a bit of a jumble. 2 of the cases happened INSIDE people’s homes, so that’s different. No, it is not OK for “kids” to break into a person’s home to steal snacks. I think the guy at the drive through seems to have over reacted. He wasn’t willing to risk running over the dog, but he shot the guy dead? How about backing up?
You know, life stinks and sometimes bad things happen and mistakes are made.
Only crazy liberals think that the law, or the gov’t, or their own “pure” motives can change that.
An absolute truism, and I believe, one of the reasons for the right to a jury of our peers, not a enlightened, elite, judge or progressive, egalitarian prosecutor.
This part about juries indicated peer wisdom to me:
A jury deliberated three hours before acquitting Gonzales. He spoke in Spanish to reporters after the trial, saying that at the end of the day it was his life or the boy's.
The verdict shocked Druker. He needed to know why the jury agreed to acquit. He spoke to the jurors officially, and then again afterward when he saw them around town. He said he always heard the same answer: They feared losing the right to protect their own homes.
"They said, at the end of the day we can't let these kids think they can come into our house and do that," he recalled. "It was sending out a statement."
