    And the home invader's family will testify saying "but he was such a good boy" and "he never hurt anyone" and "look at these pictures of him (when he was 12)". You enter a person's home uninvited and get killed in the process, that should fall under the "you play stupid games and you win stupid prizes" rule. The home owner should not have to go through this crap. What a shame for the home owner.

    If he's outside, and he was shot outside, and he was in fact unarmed and presenting no threat to the homeowner, I think it's a coin flip. I'd like to think a decent attorney (not even a good attorney) could win this in court, with a jury. I'll not debate the finer points of the castle doctrine, as it varies from state to state, and I don't live in Columbus, Ohio.

    One must always remember the definition of "jury" though. Jury as defined by me, for these purposes, is a group of people, to stupid to get out of jury duty. Do you really want them sitting in judgement of the facts, when your life is in the balance? Nah, me neither. :)

    Be safe.
    I used to feel the same way about jury duty. But ever since my son was nearly railroaded, I go to jury duty every time I am called up. Why? Because its time for people that have common sense to sit on juries instead of sheep.

    Not only will he spend thousands defending himself, even if found not guilty, he will always have a criminal record showing he was charged with a crime. Damn shame for sure.

    Disgusting.
    Grand Jurys tend to be little more than a rubber stamp for DAs in many places. They only see the evidence the DA wants them to consider
