    Witnesses state that and they also state that she seemed disoriented. Are you only accepting one set of statements, or all of them?

    Not at my fingertips - it was in one of the articles that I read yesterday.

    I believe that it had indicated trace amounts - the alcohol level was somewhere around 0.23 IIRC.

    ETA - Found it:

    Toxicology results indicate McBride had marijuana in her system and a blood-alcohol level of 0.218, nearly three times the legal driving limit for Michigan, when she was killed.

    It is you that wants it both ways; irrational behavior and no possible perception of a threat.

    No, you can't have it THAT way.

    Disoriented? If they saw her at the accident scene, she must have been practically unconscious. By the time several hours had passed and she was shot? The blood test showed .21+ BAC. I think I know where she was for that two hours. Passed out on somebody's lawn.

    What ways do I want it to be, again? I haven't indicated that I want it any particular way. I didn't ever say that there was no possible perception of a threat. However, I will state right now that it is not a given that irrational behavior indicates that there certainly was that threat. And, There is ALWAYS the possibility. It is still only you who wants it both ways. Just you.

    And no evidence of a screen door anywhere in any photo yet. So, something is not adding up. It is possible the quoted person used the wrong term for the inner (main) door.

    I think ttwtt may have a bit of a point, however. If she was that inebriated, then she may have seemed threatening. I think I could imagine that scene.
