    Maybe so, but I doubt that the court will see it as sufficient justification for shooting and killing another human being.

    This was murder. End of story.

    From what the news reports have said, it is murder. Make sure not to confuse yourself.

    Agreed. Not murder 1, but murder 2. He shouldn't have shot the guy, should have just pistol whipped him instead.

    Yep, I'd rather go in for assault than murder.

    Well, his age and the circumstances would have probably kept him out of prison, this being his first offense (on assault). He's going to prison now.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Police:Texting in movie theater sparks fatal shooting, retired officer arrested[W:308Let's stop the personal comments right now. Stick to the topic, which is not each other.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Fine...but Australia also has similar suicide stats from a much more 'western' perspective.

    And it WOULD be swell if everyone was as reasonable as you. If that were the case people wouldnt be so stupid as to say gosh...an Island like England with a much smaller and less diverse population seems to have fewer murders than in the US. The point IS well take. The US is not like ANY OTHER country.

    How about we just keep talking about homicides and gun violence and the perpetrators of the vast majority of all of those crimes, the lack of concern expressed by those that bleat on about their cause and target law abiding citizens, and if you dont like it dont bother responding.
