    Suburban Detroit homeowner convicted of second-degree murder in porch shooting

    DETROIT (AP) — Suburban Detroit homeowner convicted of second-degree murder in porch shooting.
    Justice has been served, and the asshole who shot the unarmed woman, whose only crime was to seek help after her car broke down, is going to do hard time.

    Good. I hope he doesn't get parole either.

    OpenDebate will be glad to hear this. This case has been an issue that she has been following since it began.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Justice served?
    1.) He wasn't an asshole.
    2.) Someone calling him one though?

    There was no evidence that she was seeking help. None. So stop with the spin.

    That said; He should have stuck with what he initially said. Accidental discharge, as that could only be manslaughter.

    Wow, Michigan has a strange penalty for second degree murder:

    Michigan Legislature - Section 750.317

    Michigan defines a life sentence as 25 years. But... the Court can evidently sentence him to any lesser penalty that it sees fit. In short, it appears possible (though not very likely) to get a one year sentence.

    I am from Detroit I still read a lot of the Detroit media outlets. They covered this trial pretty closely.the one thing I took from reading about this case was that he got a fair trial.weather I agree or disagree with the verdict, the prosecution was fair. They made their case and they did it the right way. they didn't continually play the race card and bring up the Trayvon Martin crap like a lot of people are doing in the media and on the forums like this onehave been doing. They made their case with the fact that they had aN the jury found the guy guilty.

    Spin? He has been CONVICTED, or didn't you read that?

    And? What does the conviction have to do with your false spin?
    There was no evidence that she was seeking any help.
    So what is it you do not understand about that claim being spin?


    Odd, it is almost like you are trying to find information to back up your spin.
    Sorry, the only thing that exists are opinions that she may have been looking for help, which is not evidence.
    Which also flies in the face of the evidence that she turned down offers of help.

    None of that really mattered in the trial. Largely the case was made on the fact a person shot an unarmed person. Not for breaking into his house, but for knocking or beating on his door early the morning. They made their case that her actions, based largely on his account, did not warrant lethal force.
