    I see a glass door with screen behind it.

    In addition.

    You can't see the reflection in this image?

    Maybe you just provided a better photo this time. Anyway, yes, it looks like a glass door here. But in that case, where is the screen door that was mentioned. Something is not adding up, but I will wait until it does before I form an opinion.

    I wonder when that photo was taken? There doesn't appear to be a hole in the glass/screen?

    We'll all have to wait and see how this turns out.
    Maybe he did feel threatened, and shot her for that reason - nobody knows but him.

    He could have also ascribed to the European philosophy of self defense and depended on another country to try and save his bacon whilst washing his own hands of responsibility.

    I carry a weapon daily, and am quite aware of my responsibility morally and within the confines of my religion - I have researched both extensively.

    The logic is simple - if the life of self or family is threatened, then I have no problem removing that threat immediately.

    If avoiding the threat involves removing the family and myself immediately from the area with out firing any rounds that is a win.

    If avoidance is impossible, and confrontation is eminent, then I will be firing until the threat ceases to be a threat.

    If that involves the death of the perpetrator, then that is acceptable.

    If said perpetrator is outside my door, and indicates that he is coming in to kill me or us, his first aggressive move will be his last.

    I do not want to have anything both ways, nor do the pro-gun folks who I know.

    Use your broad brush to paint something else.
    I'm not sure what the hell you're going on about. Are you suggesting a drunk teenage girl knocking on your door is some kind of threat that is rightfully dealt with lethal force?

    Yes, exactly. I am kind of thinking that the photos may not be ones that show a damaged door, because they may not be from the time period where the door was damaged. I am trying to avoid making any assumptions.

    Of course you don't understand.

    No different than waiting (over?) two hours and traveling six blocks. Remember that people were present and had called 911 at the scene, yet she made no plea for help and she left (twice?).

    I haven't heard that marijuana was mixed into her intoxication. I may have missed it. Do you have a quote?
