i know how grace feels, i feel that way too. and maybe women tend to think a little different than men. not sure, or maybe its just we tend to "think" we know what we will do when faced with this type situation. but recently our house got robbed, we werent home at the time, and i might point out that we dont own a gun, not a big fan of them for my own reasons, BUT i have to say, the way i felt when we returned - it probably Was a good thing we dont. he may not be here today, with my temper being the way it is. lol

I'm sorry that's happened to you babes,but people have to take responsibility for their actions and you know it's wrong to break into someone's house rummage through their private things and steal things that are close to your heart..The problem is in my country the criminal is the victim and your the criminal it feels.
When my younger brother nearly got charged for beating an intruder you would have thought well though you shouldn't have been there,but not with the rubbish we have for justice,he actually said to the police if I get prosecuted for protecting my home next time I'll kill the next one,hasten to add the police didn't like that especially when he turned round and said that your as much use as a chocolate fire guard anyway,lol,My brother is ex RN and doesn't much around.

Making the point that we are all the general public, so his blanket statement makes us all criminals - including him. What goes on in Texas is not representative of what goes on in every state or the country as a whole.
And our 'rights' are not carved in stone or absolute. There are caveats to all of them. To suggest otherwise is misleading.
I don't understand why you keep harping on about this, needless to say I didn't mean that ALL the general public are criminals, but rather, Once Upon A Time, criminals came under the category of just the general public. As is the case illustrated here by Grace, one minute a member of the general public, next, a 'hero' of the Paralympics, followed by a criminal...or suspected criminal.
I hope I have managed to clear that up....:)
I realize that Texas have their own way of dealing with things also....

Good Spring Morning ..
Different views El,
Foolish of course were one to stand
outside the door and utter those words,
but choose a safe angle and warn the
intruder, is what was on my mind.
then not so foolish to inform him there is
a weapon between them..
a scare tactic...
you having more freedom to move around,
he being confined in a small space.
having said all that,
I suppose one would have to be there
to 'know' ALL the details.
SAD case no matter what way one looks at it.
'Afternoon Grace...absolutely freezing here, but at least
dry. Snow down South I believe.
The sad thing about the case we are talking about. He was
almost yesterday's news, speaking for myself I was hard pushed to recall his name. Now it is everybody's lips for a totally different reason. Life is strange.

the first thing i thought about when i heard this story, Was that he being handicapped like that would make it a different situation as to how he "might" react with an intruder coming to his home, i "think" it would have to be totally different than another man who has his legs, i think he Would feel and Be more vulnerable. but once i started hearing more of the story, at this point, it really doesnt look good - he does in my mind now, seem guilty. but im a wishy washy type person, one day i'll hear a new piece to the puzzle and i'll think nah he didnt do it, next day might be something different. lol - i hope i never get called for a murder trial with jury duty, or i should say, the guy on trial should hope. lol
Happy Weekend Guys!
:)
I must be wishy washy as well as that is how I am..but I think it's only natural to regard things differently when new bits of evidence come along.
I must admit when I first heard of this tragedy, my first thought was does he expect to be shown leniency because of who he is and how popular he is, he is very well loved in his country. I never did 'buy' the burglar excuse.

Enjoy your weekend with the little ones PFfff....:)

now my MOM was a little luckier she only had a Mussolini
as I recall Britain/France said the same thing to Hitler
do you know what they did??? NOTHING sat and watched
It is my understanding that is quite true...an appeasement plan was in operation and an agreement with Poland was in force that if Poland were attacked, Britain would enter the war. On cue, when Poland did come under attack, Britain and France declared war.

I really do not know about Belgium/Holland...

So true that, El...

It is a tragedy no matter 'how' it happened..
and I fully agree,
the media delight in pulling such high profile
cases to bits.

You are honest, and I also admit> following
your example..
Until all this, I didn't properly know his name either!!

Same here El,
we cannot believe HOW v cold it is,
and apparently no change is expected
til the middle of next week.

I think I shall hibernate until it warms up again. It looks lovely
from the inside, but the ground is rock solid.
I agree with you about the media Grace, the price they pay for being a 'celeb' hard on the families too.
I dread to think of him being imprisoned...but then again, a life was taken....

A wonderful experience for your son Krypteia, he will be fine
and loads to share with you when he comes home.
btw Congrats on Spurs amazing last minute goal and getting through to the next round. I didn't watch it but heard it from the kitchen and heard P cheering he had watched it all the way through.
I did watch Liverpool's second leg later, they played brilliantly
sadly didn't get that extra goal they needed.
All set for tomorrow?....:)

Toasted teacakes and frothy coffee for tea...

Made a very nice chili-con-carne last night
with Quorn.

Lightly fry Quorn mince and one large chopped up onion until brown. Add a can of chopped tomatoes, followed by a can of kidney beans, drained, preferably organic, and mix in a packet of Swartz Chili-con-Carne seasoning. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve with Basmati rice. Or Long grain rice.

Filling, warming, healthy.

My brother nearly got charged believe it or not for beating a burglar up in his house can you believe it,my brother said if he got prosecuted for it next time it ever happens he just as well kill him..
I find it hard to believe and they call it justice

El I just watched a great movie called Red Light. Dinero is great in it. It is about physics and fraud. As you know I am very interested in magic so I just love this stuff. There is a great magician who specializes in fooling scientist in what they think are controlled test. There is nothing a magician like more than fooling other magicians :) I am also a hypnotist and can make people think they saw things that weren't there so I can duplicate miracles :)
