No matter what the argument may have been between 2 neighbors, it doesn't give one the right to pull out a gun and shoot a 17 year old (who happens to be my great nephew) and a 38 year old. My nephew died because this man took the law into his own hands instead of calling for police if the problem was that serious. We are crying out for justice for Austin Ferrell.

If a person is in fear for their life they have a right to protect it. So sorry and sad that this young man lost his life...people cannot just punch in glass and break a door into someone's home. May the boy rest in peace....

The man that shot that child said he was in fear of his life. I would say the same thing if I had done something so horrible. People are using that tired old line to get away with murder. The fact that he hasn't been arrested should be investigated by someone higher than the police. There needs to be a petition started to get answers from the Tullahoma Police Department as to why nothing has been done.

its a simple as locking the door and calling 911 they were right down from the police dept i mean seriously? looks to me the old man was trying to impress his 50 year old girlfriend (20 years younger) and for him to not be charged will be not only disappointing bc thats a understanment but disgrace to this towns PD

Did he have to shoot him? No? Did he have a right to? Yes. And that's all there is to it. Why were they messing with his door anyway? It's sad but that's what happens when you act like a dumbass.

Actually he didn't exactly have the right to shoot him. You need to check the law on that. There are very specific things that you can and can't do. For example, the fact that the boy was on the porch and not in the house is very different than if he had been inside the house. Just because someone is on your property doesn't give you the right to shoot them. But Tullahoma has very crooked cops so I wouldn't be surprised at all if nothing ever happens over it.

Justice was served! There is no court in the USA that would convict the old man. He was well within his rights and it is sad someone lost their life but is well within his right to defend himself and his property. I am sure the kid wasn't breaking the door glass to give the old man ice cream. I would say he ment him harm.
