The modern law basically says that your place of residence is one in which you should be able to protect yourself from illegal trespassing and attack. Some states have recenctly updated the legislation and now also gives this kind of protection to you while you are in your vehicle as well as your place of employment.

This law gives you the legal right to use deadly force to defend your Castle. In a legal context, therefore, use of deadly force which actually results in death may be defended as justifiable homicide under the Castle Doctrine.

Well in Richwood WV there is nothing there. They have nothing for people to do. No one has the right to shoot someone over CAR KEYS. I knew Ronnie and he was a great person and would of never instigated anything for someone to shoot him. That guy deserves to go to jail for the rest of his life. He even shot him in front of his two younger sons. If you've never been to Richwood you can't say anything about it.

Unless you were in those people's shoes, how do you know what really happened? No one does. It is easy to blame and take sides, but the truth is between the families. Sorry for everyone.

he didnt get shot in front of the kids,there wasnt anyone around when the shot went off, ronnie stood out there for 10 minutes screaming at tim to come outside and hed beat his ass while jenny was at lil ronnies, along with some rants of he'd kill everyone cuz he was fiendin for a pill wantin the keys, goin wild and his mom had already called and said DO NOT give him the keys..then he came IN THE HOUSE at tim holding his kid, and God knows what he wouldve done, he was goin beserk,im not sayin its right that tim shot him in the face, i mean he coulda shot em in the leg and got em the hell outta there but he was terrified of ronnie for all that hed been putting them through.after it was all said and done, thats when everyone started gathering around and seen him laying there, and that is terrible, the cops came along with the rest of the town, as he laid there for an hour without being covered...i hate it for anyone whos lost a family member, but for those who say ronnie was such an angel, your just as bad off as he is, and it was far from pre-meditated, thats just stupid

That's right Kyle and that's how we should live. I was brought up protect your family at any cost. The question is if someone told you and someone you love the were going to kill you what would you do just sit there I think not people use your brain.

It's a shame any of this had to happen. Whether you knew the shooter or the man shot, it shouldn't matter. Extremes were taken and maybe could have been handled better on both parts. But it's not you nor I whom were placed in that situation and we may have done the same thing as "Ronnie" or "Tim". I say we look deeper that the mug shot given and the little detailed report. It's not right to yell and scream when we would have done the same thing, or possibly shot off a few more bullets if someone was coming in after us. It's a sad day for the families of those whom lost a father, lover, friend, or brother. Why not try to just respect that?
