I've been following it and have been in discussions with nearby neighbors.
I think the basic facts as reported are correct.
As usual, I have my own opinion.
A. I think the homeowner was legally justified.
B. I think he got scared and shot when it was not necessary which brings up moral issues.
C. In all my not so tame youth, I've never been so drunk that I didn't realize a strange man was standing on my stairs with a gun telling me to stop....so I don't think it happened.
D. I think this is another of those cases where there are no winners. A young man who partied too much which we all have done, with the possible exception of Ed...is dead.
A homeowner killed him and will have to live with it, may be prosecuted and will certainly face civil action,,, and has had his life changed forever.
This is simply.....SAD!
