Erm, an autopsy is required whenever a death happens to a person outside a physician's direct care. Yes, we know he was stabbed, they will still have to autopsy to determine why and under what circumstances he passed.

Why? Because he entered the house uninvited? The circumstance? Axe Miz Disrespected.

It sounds strange to me that a person could enter another persons home and then stab someone -- who happens to die -- that they have to ask whether they should file a charge. Perhaps that person is the son of a local Sheriff? Perhaps that person is related to someone very powerful? Remember, only in Florida can one be charged with little or no support, and it sounds very strange that the Sheriff is asking for an autopsy to charge the offending party. And only in Florida could a woman named Belinda Jackson drive out of an office after talking to a DCF worker -- kill herself -- and no one thinks thats a bit odd. A woman who never had a mental problem in her life -- kills herself -- and that person? The last person talking to her -- is walking the streets today without a bit of concern, but then again, maybe not, they work for the State, and that agency is very close to the local police officers, and so it goes.

The way I read it, the dead guy entered the house with three other uninvitees and was stabbed by Mr Disrespecter. Or is it Mr. Disrespector?

I know part of this young man's family. They are devastated and hurting. Fortunately for the family that I know, they are amazing, godly people that are finding their strength in God, and will be the ones to help hold up the rest of the family. Never forget, behind the story, even if the men were at fault, are real, and hurting people. None of us are exempt from experiencing such a tragedy. If it ever happens to you, I'm sure you'll want compassion, prayers and no tactless opinions by people that really have no idea what they are talking about.

Well, the general purpose of these boards are for people to say what they feel, not what they think, most of haven't really been taught to think, we're not paid to think, but we freelance often.

Personally, I "think" that we don't have enough information to really be able to render a decently well informed opinion, but we'll freelance and try anyway. If the dead guy was in the not dead guy's house and was threatening to make the not dead guy into a severely injured guy, well then he deserved to become a dead guy. Just because someone disses you doesn't give you the right to call someone up to come over and hurt them. At least, not in our "system". We're supposed to be more intelligent than that and be able to think of better options, see first paragraph.
