    What does everyone think of this case that happened a while ago?

    Was discussing it in class today and what we thought we would charge him with and why.

    I said negligent homicide but the three "mock jurors" said no. :dunno:

    Just want to get a feel what gun owners think. The account I was given of what happened was slightly different from what is in the wiki.

    I'd say it was a bad shoot because:

    1. Defendant failed to properly identify the intruder as a threat (not armed)
    2. Defendant was not in physical danger nor was a felony being committed

    I would also add I would not go outside. People can mess with the outside of my house all they want. Try coming inside and we have a different story.

    i would have charged him.

    there is no reason in that situation to go outside and confront them. sure, if the wife is yelling "get the gun", get the gun...dont go try and confront the guy who is "the threat"
