    Not in the eyes of the law, no. AdamT already gave you the legal definition. Chose to ignore it if you like, but please do stop pretending you're making a legally meaningful argument.

    No, that is bull****. Burglary is not assault.

    so when the supposed attorney said the same thing on the opposite siad it was fine but when this guy says it, its wrong.

    BTW what he said (the supposed attorney) was 100% wrong he was addressing me and was totally dishonest.

    lastly the law did NOT demand it thats why they werent tried nor should they have been. No way to prove without a reasonable doubt that they committed murder LMAO

    if you disagree PLEASE, prove so now, id be GLAD to hear it and would GLADLY admit to the majority here being wrong if you can do so

    Burglary is force used against the rights and liberties of another individual. It is force, if the first act it is the aggressor act.

    In that case, define the word "hide" for me.

    the prosecutor couldn't win the case, that doesn't mean they didn't commit a crime, it means they weren't CHARGED with a crime.

    Fox was standing inside a small shed when a .45-caliber rifle bullet passed through the shed’s door and pierced his heart.

    HOW IS THIS NOT AT LEAST MANSLAUGHTER?

    They were not acquitted in criminal court. The grand jury elected not to indict them.

    cant answer for everyone but ill answer for me if that man was my family id be SAD over the LOST and PISSED that he was so stupid to get himself shot because of his despicable behavior.

    I would NEVER blame the people protecting their property from an armed junkie.

    My emotions would not interfere with my logic.

    wrongo. I am complaining about it and if I had a POS drug addict, criminal relative who got shot because he broke onto someone else's property to commit theft...I wouldn't whine one bit.
    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.
