    Well, if you concede that it wasn't self defense then you are conceding that they should have gone to jail under Colorado law.

    I dont have to worry about judging them under Colorado law. Apparently, the Colorado prosecutor disagrees with you.

    I was talking about the legal definition of murder. You were talking about whether or not someone has been convicted of murder, which is not the same thing.

    So why was the criminal armed? Intent anyone?

    I guess the reason for his hasty departure was from a sudden change of heart. Kind of like an atheist in a fox hole...

    The prosecutor convened a grand jury, so I guess he had some reason to think there was a crime.

    Either that or he's running for office.

    We understand how it OPERATES. Many of us just honestly disagree with the way it operates and don't believe it truly WORKS. I know that I could never work in that environment. I nearly got fired about four years ago for refusing to work on a project that I morally disagreed with.

    Apparently not if one is a suspected burglar trapped in a shed. Then they are presumed guilty and executed on the spot.
