    Man shoots intruder at 2am, gets charged with murder
    ........US Air Force Tech Sgt. Matt Pinkerton shot an intruder in his home on September 13th just before 2am.

    That is not in question.

    Yet somehow, in Maryland, where Castle Doctrine does not exist by statute but rather only by case law, Sgt. Pinkerton is being charged with 2nd degree murder.

    ........So what did Matt do wrong when a crazed man broke in his front door at 2am and was after his wife? To me, nothing. Yet according to the state of Maryland, Matt should have called 911 first and waited for the police.

    It is very unfortunate for this soldier to be treated in this way...he's expected to protect his country and the very people who wish to put him in prison for protecting his own home and family. I can't believe that this will go very far.
    Just another reason that I will NEVER set one foot inside a blue state...I always am willing to spend the extra gas money to drive around those places.

    Another example of how our legal system is designed for one thing and one thing only-to provide a forum for criminals not to have to be held accountable for their actions.
    This is also an easy arrest and stat padding for a moronic DA.

    I know the first report is never the true story, etc, etc. Regardless, if this is the whole story then it is a disgrace and I've no idea how the DA can sleep at night.

    It's unclear to me after reading both articles whether he has been arraigned or merely arrested. It is apparently still under investigation. If he has not been formally charged I would think if he story is true then it could still be dismissed for lack of evidence. This does smell like politics.

    As much as I despise methheads pill heads etc they seem smart compared to those in power in states like Maryland.

    He will probably be acquitted, but he should never be in this position in the first place

    There's always more.

    Dead guy is wife's former? male friend. "All evidence points to Jessica only maintaining a friendship with Green yet when he pushed for more she ended the friendship completely."

    There might be sordid details to the story that would or could put things in a light where a murder charge is warranted.

    Others will sort it out.
    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.

    I can see circumstances where the charge is warranted. We don't know enough to say.

    I would love to see how the Assistant State's Attorney would respond if someone broke his door down at 2 am. I certainly hope he doesn't have a firearm.

    In my LFI-1 class, Ayoob stressed that someone breaking into an occupied house through a locked door or window already meets the definition of "vicious criminal," and there is no way to predict a safe outcome for the residents.

    If some idiot kicks your door down at 2 am for whatever reason I dont give hoot what it is unless hes LE chasing you from a crime scene and gets shot then some DA is whacky enough to make that statement he made and charge you hes an idiot. God help folks who live in states like that. They for sure arent allowed to help themselves.
