    I wasn't there so I didn't see the guys demeanor when he walked in. If the old man left the door unlocked ( which it sounds like he did ), I think if someone just "wandered in" , I may check out the situation first before firing. The guy may have looked confused and lost and did not look to be a threat.
    I would'nt blame anyone for doing what the old man did. He was within every right as far as I'm concerned. Just sad it happened.

    No they would never say that in a court of law it would be "Had special needs" trust me on this.

    Something is very, very wrong when the mental health system can be used to keep veterens from enjoying their God given and hard fought for rights, but does nothing to protect an incompetent person from himself.
