For those of you not familiar with the case. It's on all the news channels so it's BIG time. A high school kid gets all drunk and stoned and does some lsd(source:katu news) then breaks into(felony?) someone's garage. He procides to light some cardboard boxes on fire because he is cold(source:katu news[how do we know that he was cold]). The owner of the house, a 63 year old man with a wife, hears the noise in his garage and gets his gun to investigate.(nothing strange so far). Upon opening the door to his garage and finding an intruder burning stuff in his garage and "acting aggressive"(katu news quote) the man shoots the high schooler. Killing him. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif NOW, the old man is being charged with HOMICIDE! FOR WHAT? Protecting his home?? From an arsonist??? I'm sorry, but I would have done the same thing. Man this pi$$e$ me off. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif What about you.
