    I'm not really a fan of that argument because at its base, that's appeal to authority. But you cannot infringe upon the rights of others without cause, that is a basic premise, it's fundamental to our Republic. Hallucinated threats caused by irrational fear do not count as cause, they are not real. Ignorance and stupidity are not excuses for infringing upon the rights of others.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I'm sure that many times in the future Mr. Dunn will wish that he had just left that place. If he had he wouldn't be spending the rest of his life behind bars and that young man would still be alive.

    But he did what he did and now he must pay the price.
    Good. Glad to know that the real thug will spend his life behind bars. Life plus 105 years is a long time to think about what he's done.

    None of which you have been able to refute.
    When you say evidence dude. the evidence. You are referring to the evidence that got him convicted yes?

    That's the second time you made that joke, just an observation, it wasn't that funny the first time....

    Excon: Yes, he chased the vehicle. He shot into the vehicle 10 times. There were no return shots, since the guys weren't armed. The vehicle took off, and the defendant ran after it, continuing to shoot into it.


    This really doesn't sound like a case of self defense at all. He had lost control, at best. At best. He was in a rage and determined to do what he intended to do.

    Then afterwards, he didn't call the police. He went to his hotel, ordered a pizza, had a beer, took the dog for a walk, then went to sleep.

    I'm sure you can see how this is different from someone who really is defending himself. He just blew his stack over the music, the guys' attitude about it.

    Neither you nor I was in the trial. There are probably facts that neither of us are aware of. But what he did after he killed one of the guys is probably what landed him in jail for life. Those aren't the actions of an innocent man who thought he was defending himself (although we all know that he wasn't TRULY defending himself, since the guys weren't armed).

    I think it may have been a crime of passion, in the heat of the moment. And for that, I think no parole wasn't warranted. But when you take someone's life, that's something that must be done only in certain, extreme circumstances. If not, then justice must prevail. The one who took someone's life must then give up his own, in the name of justice.

    It's a sad situation. If only the defendant had not had the gun. None of this would've happened. It's just so easy, when someone is hot headed, to do the wrong thing and lose control.
