was the perpetrator black? Was the homeowner a white Hispanic?
If the boy is black and the homeowner not black, this could be another Trayvon Martin case. A key difference is that the boy was up to no good, whereas the liberal view of Trayvon Martin is that he was just minding his own business walking home. They can’t say that in this case. But the liberals and race baiters will say that even though the boy should not have been at this guy’s house, that it was excessive force.
Now, if the homeowner was black and the boy is black, then this story will disappear from the media. It will only stay alive if the boy is black and the homeowner is another race or ethnicity.
Was he drinking a bottle of iced tea flavored with Guaifenesin?
Sounds very familiar:
Familiar to what?
Umm, professional thief here. 2am out in the yard of the homeowner. No way I’d convict.
14 years old?
Hey, mom, where are your parenting skills?
“did not pose an ‘imminent threat’ when he was shot”
Easy to say after the fact.
However, at the time the homeowner was defending hearth and home how was he supposed to know that the perp was unarmed and not an imminent threat? If someone’s trespassing upon one’s property they certainly don’t have your best interest at heart, and why does the homeowner have to second-guess himself in whether to use a gun in protecting home and family against a threat?
Try a search.
“the teen’s history of burglary arrests “
his brother says: “He would steal — he was a professional thief, sure”
And for those who didn’t look at the pictures, your stereotypes are correct.
Of course the homeowner is guilty of racial profiling and premeditated murder...he lured the innocent young man into attempting to steal by dangling the rewards of hard work and honesty in his face... how could he be expected to resist...it’s like hunting doves at a bird feeder. (sarc)
I believe a fence means private property - stay out.
It has already started. I live in N.O. on the west bank. Local talk show was discussing it. Blacks see it as a white guy killing a black youth. Whites see it as a man protecting his property where he has a child and a pregnant wife. The NOPD has video which shows the youth climbing the fence to gain access to yard. Got a sick feeling the self appointed reverands will be down soon to roil up an already racist group for more contributions to their org’s.
Never mind, that a simple review of the recent news shows that:
The white Hispanic, Aaron Hernandez, has been charged with murder and already convicted in the court of public opinion for killing a young black man;
An old white guy, John Spooner, was just convicted of murder for shooting a black teen in Milwaukee; and
Now the white man in this article is charged with murder for killing a black teen on his property.
The black agitators will not let facts get in their way. They will continue to scream that the Zimmerman verdict (despite all the evidence in Zimmerman's favor) now means that it's legal for non-black to kill black boys. And Useful Idiots will continue to mindlessly parrot the drivel.
My old neighborhood. Glad I left that crime-riddled rat infested hole.
This is why you wait there silently until they get their head and shoulders and at the very least waist into the house before you blast them....
What if the homeowner was following biden’s advice.....
