    Whoa:
    The letter also revealed that Fitzsimmons had smoked marijuana earlier that night, a fact learned after he voluntarily submitted to a blood test. But he showed no signs of impairment when officers arrived, Schimel said, and so couldn't be charged with being armed while intoxicated.

    He said a lesser charge of being armed with detectable amount of restricted substance wasn't appropriate given Fitzsimmons lack of a criminal history and lack of evidence at his home of any "substantial drug activity."
    A gun in a holster is better than one drawn and dispensing bullets. Concealed forces the latter. - ixtow

    Hi, I'm hypercritical. But I mean no harm, I just like to try to look deeply at life

    It's bizarre that the dead intruder's wife was beaten to death in 2007. http://www.jsonline.com/news/waukesh...133280033.html

    This is good. And, proof that castle doctrine is needed, because I guarantee that family is still going to try a civil suit.

    Some research on how James Babe lived his life should result with nobody being surprised in how it ended.

    WoW. Criminal record that goes back to 1991. Includes 7 counts of burglary, sexual assault of a child, disorderly conduct, battery, drug offense, OAR plus some civil judgements. I doubt there will be any civil action. Poster boy for the need of a castile doctrine law.
