Uuhh..he shot up a teenage girl and when she was bleeding out he put the gun under her chin and blew her head off. We don’t. Even do that to enemy combatants on the battlefield. Much less 100 pound girls.
Which he described as a "good clean kill". Some grizzly dark humor in that phrase.
A .22 will not blow your head off.
Why all the sympathy for a drug abusing thief?
Blew her head off with a .22?
You’re arguing leniency based on gender, an argument I do not buy into.
People are breaking into a house, the homeowner has no idea about their ages, backgrounds, whether they “really really mean it” or whether they have weapons not immediately visible.
Better to be safe than sorry, and if that means making sure a 17/18 yr old ADULT (not “girl”) is 100% not a threat the moment one turns his back, then they may have to suffer the ultimate consequence for their law-breaking actions.
