I already said the guy is probably going to be found guilty.<quoted text>It was a planned massacre. He should have dialed 911. He didn't. He killed a person after being incapacitated.
Yes, you should defend yourself if someone comes into your home. You don't lie in wait. From a legal dictionary:
"A person claiming self-defense must prove at trial that the self-defense was justified. Generally a person may use reasonable force when it appears reasonably necessary to prevent an impending injury. A person using force in self-defense should use only so much force as is required to repel the attack. Nondeadly force can be used to repel either a nondeadly attack or a deadly attack. Deadly Force may be used to fend off an attacker who is using deadly force but may not be used to repel an attacker who is not using deadly force."
I guess I was right. Common sense is not so common after all.
Also citing a law doesn't mean the law is common sense. It's only the law because flaming liberals value the lives of low life scum bags more than they value the right of law abiding citizens to not be subjected to threats of harm in their own home.
