Armed old folks should be the tip of the tip of the spear when it comes to removing criminals from this world. If he gets convicted, I would love to see my tax dollars used to give him "3 hots and a cot", instead if some career criminal illegal.

I think the clincher for me is that they immediately began beating up on an 80 yr old man. Technically could have killed him, had he hit his head instead of his shoulder when he fell. If they had just started to run away when he came home, that would be one thing...but they violently beat him up as soon as he got home. I feel like he had every right to start shooting.

I feel the same way. I read on one of the news sites that this wasnt the first time this couple went after this guy and that he has been burglarized three times previously. If she didnt put herself in that situation we wouldnt have to have this conversation right?

A good lawyer will argue he was in fear of his life even as they were running away because they had been there before and he has reason to believe they'd be back again. It will work if only one member of the jury is looking for an excuse to let the man off.

If the old man wants to shoot people in the back the least he should do is shut his yap afterwards.

Agreed. Nonetheless I think a good lawyer will probably find one juror that would give this guy a hanged jury if not off completely.

I think so too. But being found not guilty in court is not the same as actually being innocent of the crime, regardless of if the glove fit or not Wink

This made me laugh.....except since he let one escape, he had to be perfectly honest about what went down. Shrug

80 years old, he probably doesn't give a shit. Figures he managed to get at least one of them.

If I can still walk when I'm 80, I probably won't give a damn either.
