What a clueless comment from this police officer! The door had nothing to do with this, since the thug broke through it. Instead, the parents should be congratulated on 1) having an UNLOCKED, LOADED gun and telling the boy where it was and 2) allowing the boy to practice so he was able to shoot first.
He was thus able to save the lives of his siblings and himself, enabling the police to arrive after the fact and not have to outline bodies with their well-worn yellow chalk.
having an UNLOCKED, LOADED gun and telling the boy where it was and 2)
Exactly!!! Had the weapon been locked and/or unloaded they would all be dead.
In Californicate the parents would be arrested, prosecuted, and serve serious prison time if they were unable to get an informed jury.
The perp would be given immunity for testimony against the teen, and the teen would definitely do time in the youth authority as 14 year olds can't get a jury if they are charged as minors.
The family would be impoverished and destroyed, and the perp would definitely sue and again the only check would be an informed jury.
