My response was the same reason as yours, people accusing the man of wanting to kill someone without knowing any of the details.quote:Originally posted by Sassy Kims:quote:Originally posted by Jennifer:The story leaves out a lot. I guess we should just assume he was out for a nice bike ride, saw the chicken houses, decided to have a look around, encountered the owner, and was in the middle of telling the owner how much he admired his setup and was about to offer his opinions on ways the owner could improve his production when the owner went nuts, drew his gun and tried to murder the well meaning trespasser. (After all, the owner left his house that morning hankering to kill somebody) Yep, that sounds about right. All that's missing is the baby the "innocent trespasser" was breast feeding when the evil owner accosted and shot him.quote:Originally posted by Sassy Kims:quote:Originally posted by mad American:

Nowhere in any article I've read does it indicate that the shot man had stolen anything. They do mention the shooter had been a victim of theft previously.
From what I've read, he was a trespasser, if he had been warned previously, or there was signage present. At worst the reports indicate he was a third degree burglar...entering and remaining unlawfully in a building.
Well, my statements are based on what's been reported. Yours, sarcastic as it is, like most of the scenarios proposed here, are made up to justify an unlawful use of deadly force.
MAYBE it's because Sassy is a law enforcement officer and it's his BUSINESS to know what does and does not constitute the legitimate use of deadly force.
