finally we are gaining some sanity ..........

A jury convicted a suburban Detroit homeowner of second-degree murder and manslaughter on Thursday in the killing of a drunk, unarmed woman on his porch last year, rejecting his claim that he was afraid for his life and had acted in self-defense.

Interestingly, the basic circumstances sound VERY like the
OSCAR PISTORIUOS case.

I heard it said,'even' if he didn't know that it was his girlFriend
who was in the bathroom, he knew SOMEONE was there
and began shooting in self defence..

Good Morning everyone here.

A multitude of things piling up here.....getting behind in snail
mail, telephone calls to make, and have a few appointments
to keep.
So am putting topix out of my mind for a week or so, which is
not to say I am putting you all out of my mind!
It is getting quite exhausting on here at present, I am sure you
will agree. Not that I am innocent in participating in such!..:)
Hope to get this Kindle Fire up and running....watch a few
movies....chill a bit.
See you in a bitty (Midlands expression)
TTFN.
Yes, some serious discussions going on here, true..
a lot of horror going on out there in the world at this time--

when I hold in my arms and ....look at my 6month old granddaughter;

great dark smiling eyes full of innocence and wonderment, rosy fat dimpled cheeks,
porcelain skin... an example of humankind in it's
more perfect state,

Wonder what happens to (some) humans as they develop!

El, enjoy your break
You are wonderful to the fur family and we understand
that take a lotta time,

Don't worry we'll keep the home fires burning here;)

HAPPEEEEEEEEE Thursday, everyone! El, I stopped in to find out if you got the KINDLE up and running? If you CANNOT acess the movies, let me know, I got my copy of Thomasina yesterday and will mail it to you. I can always get another one, they are cheap on Amazon.com . I think I can also get you a copy of A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. Nothing much is happening around here, but hawaii is going to get slammed tonight with TWo hurricanes. They have not seen that in 22 years. I know they are known for their LEIS but I hope they dont get screwed!!!!!!!!!! I am bringing my car in tomorrow for a steering wheel fluid flush and brake fluid flush. my former co worker, jeanine, is going to follow me there, we are going to do lunch, and then she will take me back for the car. I have to have 200 dollars for the job, 89 dollars for each service (OUCH) but have the money put aside. Then I should be all right for awhile. Hard to believe I have 66 thousand miles on there already. 9 years old!!!!!!!!!!
Good luck with the car Vee, true they are an expensive item!
the mileage isn't THAT bad, once it's 'coughing' along lol, you're ok
For another while:) Should it break down, you can always hop along
into work
On the big dog's back LOL

Hope you are keeping well..
Did you get any break this summer?

yes the defense's version , but the law is very specific ..........

Self-defense is the right to use reasonable force to protect oneself or members of the family from bodily harm, or to a lesser extent, one's property, from the attack of an aggressor, if the defender has reason to believe he/she/they is/are in danger. Self-defense is a defense to a criminal charge or to tort liability. To establish the defense, the person must be free from fault or provocation, must have no means of escape or retreat, and there must be an impending peril.

Very interesting,

The last thing (you'd imagine) anybody would do
Is shoot FIRST, surely that would be the final choice one would make,
to shoot LAST!

As no one really wants to kill another,
But in fairness, one would have to be right in that particular set of
circumstances to KNOW why he did it;
some have put forward that he felt acutely
vulnerable, owing to his disability.

The no means of escape is changing in many states. You don't have to escape from your home for example. In many states you can stand your ground. Given the choice I would try to escape except from home. If you shoot someone you can't escape the legal fees unless you are no billed. We had a case where burglars were breaking into a neighbors home. He called 911 and told them they were armed with a pry bar and he was armed with a shotgun. The whole thing was caught on tape. As they left the home he told them to drop their weapon and get on the ground. They did not comply and he shot both of them. No charges have been filed.

I think he shot his girlfriend with intent. If he really didn't know who was in his home it is reasonable to assume they are armed and you can have a fear for your life. Remember the man has no feet so his fear may be different than the average man. We had a case here where a burglar locked his self in a bathroom and called toe police because he was afraid he was going to be shot : )

I saw the video, yes,
but it goes deeper than that, having no lower limbs must have
A HUGE psychological effect on him all his life,
albeit it he did achieve greatness with the blades...

It's easier for the rest of us to sit in a relaxed frame of mind and
make an orderly picture of it with all these suggestions >> f 'could have''should have'..

Perhaps he DID even kill her in cold blood,
But again, we haven't the least idea,
it's also possible there are other sides to it that only
He and Reeva knew..

If you were to ask my opinion,
I have a gut feeling he didn't set out to kill her,
tho' contrary to that I also find the story
about the alleged burglar in the bathroom
Very hard to believe and his haste in pulling
the trigger,
But..... Again .....

Who knows!

Good Morning ..

Misty August morning,
but good to be alive!

Referring back to EBOLA again...

I don't suffer from OCD,
but I have a firm rule>
*every time* I have been out and about..
the minute I return home,
I wash my hands thoroughly with an antibacterial soap;

when we consider everything we touch when out & about, hand rails,
Escalators, banisters, doorknobs etc etc..
Where all sorts of germs gather...

with this Ebola scare,(tho' not here now)..
Nonetheless,
It's not a bad habit to form!
