feelings impact circumstances and feelings MATTER
you can try and play word games all you want but feelings do matter they just arent the only factor
feelings matter in this case too and all you have offered is what YOUR MEANINGLESS OPINION is on the circumstances not FACTS
you don't know how they felt, you don't know what the standard reasonable person will feel in their circumstances and thats already been proved. the vast majority here disagree with you. We all ask the same questions while you offer the same poor answers. HOW DO YOU KNOW THERE WAS NO THREAT and you have offered NOTHING LMAO
You make up what ifs that suit you but ignore the ones that go against you its hysterical.
like I said you are wrong feeling matter because they impact circumstance
word it how ever you want nothing changes
Hmm, just looking at Colorado's self defense statute, and it's actually pretty deadly for the defendants here:
"3. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (1) of this section, a person is not justified in using physical force if:
(b.) He is the initial aggressor, except that his use of physical force upon another person under the circumstances is justifiable if he withdraws from the encounter and effectively communicates to the other person his intent to do so, but the latter nevertheless continues or threatens the use of unlawful physical force...."
I haven't seen anything to suggest that the burglars did anything but run away when they were confronted.
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
