    That's what I'd say.

    Just another reason I left Detroit.

    The "it just went off" defense is plausible, but it only changes the charges from murder to negligent homicide.
    As I understand it the deceased was outside and not attempting to force her way in, had not forced her way in.

    (sarcasm) Maybe he can try a "flimsy door" argument, that he believed he was in imminent danger because his door was insufficient to protect him from this unarmed woman. (/sarcasm)

    Seriously, this is probably a great example of what panic does to judgment.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    defense in the court room doesn't make it a self defense story as is required to post here.
