So here is a really wierd, and messed-up, case for you my fellow Heretics; and I am interested to here the public Input on the matter.
So in lovely town of Little Falls, Minnasota an old man of 65 years (Mr. Smith) has had his house broken into mutliple times in recent months. The man, claiming to be fearful of future Robberies, sets up camera's and recording devices and arms himself to the teeth in preparation for a eventual conflict. Needless to say he gets what he asked for and more.
One night two teenagers enter into the House; a White Male and Female. As they do the old man shoots the young lad dead with a shotgun, then proceeds to drag him into a workshop so as to not stain the carpet. After reloading he finds the women and shoots her too; making sure to drop some language as he does. now at this point two teens are dead, circumstantially from Breaking and Entering pruivate property.
I pose to you these questions.
The Courts, however, paint this man in a different story. Mr. Smith was charged with "Premeditated-Murder" on the basis he killed two teens. Supposedly laying in wait to catch and kill the burglarers he apparently is commiting a crime, and shooting them dead was as well. Regardless of self-defense, or the fact that both teens had Police Records, it seems he is a guiltyman for planning to kill people in his own home.
Thus we have a conundrum here people. On the one hand it is undeniable that these teens, with a History, did Trespass onto Private Property; and may have had the motive of wanting to Vandalize/Steal property. It is a fact that Mr. Smith had been robbed, and that he set up Camera's and Recording devices in the hopes of catching these folks to cinvict them, or defend his actions in killing them. As per the "Castle Doctrine" law a resident of Minnosota can use Lethal Force is someone is illegal
on their property and using force to "Illegally"
enter their home.
However we also know that only the boy seemed to be in the house to steal property. The young girl seemed to have followed her young freind in.We know that Mr. smith didn't just kill them, he took his time to drag them from the scene into his workshop nearbye. He then had enough time to reload and kill the girl, repeating the action in a rather crude manner. Whether either intruders were putting Mr. Smith in a position of Life or Death is debatable at this point.
Thus my fellow Heretics I propose to you these simple questions. If he killed the young boy, why finish off the girl, why not let her live to face for her crimes? Excessive force or murderous actions? Why move the bodies if your defending your home; shouldn't you contact the Police and leave them where they fell?
Additionally, for all their smiling photo's these kids had History, and clearly did not come for a social visit. Is the Media over-playing the "Victim" Card, or do you think Mr. Smith went to far?
