No, it obviously isn't always answered (prayer), it would be too easy to obtain faith: AND THEREFORE MAKE IT PLAIN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, loosing its ESSENCE!

If yYOU knew so much about the case you'd know that Mitchell came at him when he had the gun and Daniel ran and hid with it so he wouldn't have to hurt hin. He just wanted the guy to go away and leave them alone. Mitchell had just planted his fist on Daniel's roomate's face.
Now that its over people are coming out with more stories/truth! Now this wasn't over stolen items at all but Chris found his wife with daniel. Do you know anything about this echo?

If that is what happened, it won't be the first time rose turned tricks or cheated & chris went nuts. But this scenario fits the story & her demeanor more so then a stolen item. We probably will never know.

Immoral family... Chris should have kicked out his wife from home, rather than fighting with Daniel!

Well Daniel has been released I hope someone keeps him safe so he can get back to his wife and kids and go on with his life.

The judge dismissed the charges of manslaughter in light of Kentucky's self defense and no duty to retreat statutes. Lots of eyes are on Daniel as they help him make a hasty departure.
I hope Carter Family will found assistance to rebuild their life... Find a home, a job and school for kids. To take a fresh start! And that nobody with be so stupid to claim act of revenge!!! I wish you a lot of LOVE & PEACE Carter's :p

Terrible situation all the way around. Worse when drugs and liquor are involved, and terrible that there are kids out here missing their father who was only looking for a job.
I wish Daniel luck and can only hope the legal system shows him mercy. He seems innocent of the crimes placed against him. Everything I have read and seen shows someone who just... wanted to have the dream. But sadly took the wrong turn and host family for it (No offense to the kids on here defending there family. I am sure you only see the good in your family just like I do.).

I hope Daniel gets out soon and can see people out here really did care and wished him the best, not everyone in Ky is back woods hillbilly mafia trying to get him hurt. Most of us just want the same thing he does: Our family to be happy. Good jobs, and spouses to have a safe place to sleep at night.

This thread has been, at the very least, a reflection of different perspectives on this tragedy. For the Mitchell family, and for Daniel, it will be painful for a very long time. I wish Chris's children well going forward. I wish Daniel a life of loving devotion to his family, for on this Thanksgiving Day, he has much to be thankful for. Again, to Aurora and Phillipe and to all the French film crew, please accept our gratitude for your faithfulness and friendship. It is easy to abandon people in times of difficulty, but Daniel's friends all remained true. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. God bless.

I believe this young man and his neighbors were all drinking and it has to do with the husband being drunk and jealous of the good looking man that his woman wanted and all heck broke loose !!!! The man had to defend himself or die, what would you do ?

... You live. You move on. He did what he had to to survive, and look how things turned out, and worst of all over a woman. Last I checked women were very replaceable once you stop looking at the ones that turn their heads when you aren't around.
So it sucks that one man died for one, and another ended up in jail because one wanted him. I just want this one, nice guy to find peace and a better job, be able to take care of his family.

What did I miss ? When did this become about a woman? I thought it was over something stolen/borrowed & alcohol?

The more people find out different aspects of the scenarios leading up to that deadly encounter, the more convoluted the story becomes. We can guess and postulate and put forth all kinds of conjecture. Whatever the real story was, we may never know. If it was about mad jealousy, it is all the more tragic. From what has been said about Rose, she wasn't worth dying for.
