That's right,. The circus will never come to town on account of those people unless there's a whiff of racial profiling.

From the article:
"Still, says Byrd, "she was a very sweet lady...."

Funny, the autopsy showed she was stinkin drunk and high on dope. Facts are, she was underage drinking, got slobbering drunk and also, illegally, high on marijuana, driving while intoxicated (putting others lives and property in danger), wrecked her car. Left the scene of an accident, stumbling around in the dark, drunk and high, trespassing on private property in the dark of night, bashing on someone's door until she awakens them and puts the homeowner in a situation where he feared for his life.

Yeah, that is the description of a "very sweet LADY."

Sounds like her daddy should be charged for repeatedly giving his drunk, drug addict daughter car after car after car, even though it as obvious she was an irresponsible and dangerous driver. His actions put the lives of all the people who shared the road with his daughter at risk.

The legal drinking age in Michigan is 21. Drinking was a crime plus the drunk driving, plus the leaving the scene, plus the drug use and who knows what other crime committed in the dark that night.

Face it....the guy was trigger happy.
I don't care who's knocking on my door at 4 in the morning, I'm sure not gonna shoot him for it unless he tries to force his way into my house.
The young lady may have been drunk and on pot. That does not give anyone the right to kill her....PERIOD.

I agree. Even if the girl was a skank trash queen, I don't see a reason why the guy shot her, though, he claims it went off accidentally. Therefore, she obviously didn't try to break in or incite harm.

I'm all for gun ownership but unfortunately, there are irresponsible owners. If you cannot properly control a firearm and differentiate safe from harmful acts, then you shouldn't own one. If you do and it "accidentally" shoots, then you deserve your shortcoming.

Owning a firearm requires great responsibility and control. You can't handle it, don't own one.

Im all for car ownership - but if you cant drive one without being two times the legal limit for alcohol, slam into a parked car (again), and wonder aimlessly ending up on someones porch at 4 am - then you deserve to get shot.

We're all just supposing here. Let's say the homeowner helped the woman. Pretty clearly she was not going to contact the police. She wanted to get home. From there she could say someone took her car for example. At least she could sober up so that charge would be lost. She could say the head damage caused her to wonder around and she could not remember anything.
She was desperate and bad things happen when you are stressed.

I hope you'll stand by the same convictions if the same partakes with a close relative of yours.

Speculation. One cannot assume the intent. As I stated above, I hope you stay with that conviction if it partakes with a close relative or loved one.

It's my understanding from an interview with the attorney of the dead girl that the individual who's car she hit called 911 at the time of the accident, and then went out to try and help the girl, who had already left the scene of the accident. That same person got in their car and tried to find her, but was unable too after cruising the neighborhood. Renisha did not end up on the porch until almost three hours after the accident and was still apparently at over a .25 BAC, although that was something I heard from a source other then the families attorney. There is no doubt that if any of those facts are true, she most definitely contributed a great deal to the circumstances leading to the incident that ended her life. The homeowners actions were extreme, and he is likely guilty of some degree of manslaughter, but until he is tried by a jury, we are only speculating on hearsay and not facts. Very sad situation for both parties involved and their families.

Listen up dope. I did not make any statement relative to thinking the shooting was OK. Far from it. I only speculated as to what could have happened if circumstances had been different. I labeled it as supposition.

...and what could have happened is she could have never drank and got into an accident. Or never gone up to a house and died. Or the guy never would have answered the door. Or he would of never owned a gun. Woulda, coulda, blah blah blah. You can say the same thing about every incident on the planet. It was idiotic to state, "dope".

On the other hand, with this woman's history of repeatedly drinking, drugging, driving under the influence and wrecking, how long would it be until she killed an innocent person with this reckless behavior? Sad to say, but maybe this homeowner just saved someone's life by taking hers. This woman had some serious problems and she was a danger to everyone on the road or anywhere near it. It was her choice to drink, do drugs and drive and this, apparently is not the first time, and she has not learned from her mistakes. It's better she has been permanently stopped, before she hurt or killed an innocent person.

My relatives - close and otherwise - don't drink themselves into a tizzy. So your comment is moot.

He raises the gun and takes aim but then it goes off accidentally? A likely story
