So apparently some old crazy guy killed two teenagers when they broke into his house to rob them. He then claimed to have killed them in excessive fashion. You can read the article for all of the details, that's not the point of this thread.
The "Castle Law" as it's known allows people to use force/violence to defend themselves within their homes/property. This guy didn't technically do anything illegal even if it seems grossly unnecessary.
[*]It's disgusting how the media is portraying these as "good and popular" kids. Read the article above, those two words are used dozens of times. News flash, "good" kids aren't addicted to drugs and don't break into people's homes to rob them multiple times. And "popular"? What the fuck does that have to do with ANYTHING? It's used as if them being popular is more reason that we should be outraged over it, like this would be "better" somehow if they were unpopular.
[*]If the story the guy told is true, he's as dumb/crazy as fuck. Crazy for obviously slaughtering teenagers regardless of the circumstances, and dumb for making himself look guilty as hell by telling this eccentric kill-story as if he was hunting deer. Then he staches them in the basement for days? Something smells fishy.
It makes for an interesting legal case even if it is extremely unfortuante.
