    Duh, just open it or better yet just thrust the knife through the screen right into the person eyeball penetrating the brain.

    I've seen some of your appalling and illogical posts too.

    This girl should never have knocked on this guy's door, she shoulda stopped a passing motorist and asked for help. But, she was young and didn't know the potential hazard of knocking on people's doors after dark. She did what most people would not do, go to someone's door for help. She paid the ultimate price, her life, at the hands of someone who probably shouldn't have owned a gun in the first place. His SYG defense didn't work. Too bad they didn't ask for the death penalty for him.

    Everyone has kitchen knives and they kill people. When in your home with your kitchen knives you have a responsibility to use them correctly, except when you want to use them to KILL, then you could care less about responsibility.

    Does OJ come to mind
    OJ Simpson killed? I thought he was acquitted?

    Did he stab someone from behind a screen door? I don't recall seeing that during the testimony given, and I watched it every day on Court TV.

    Of course, I'm waiting for the pro gun people to come out and say that if she would have had a gun, she could have defended herself.

    so if you are standing next to a screen door-you believe you are immune from a knife attack from someone on the other side of the door?

    now I agree that the shooting was not proper. but I don't think you an open debate know much about knives or screen doors for that matter

    The Detroit-area homeowner who shot in the head 19-year-old Renisha McBride was found guilty of murder Thursday afternoon. The jury found him guilty on all three charges — second-degree murder, manslaughter, and felony firearm — on its second day of deliberations.

    .....Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said her office determined that Wafer “did not act in lawful self-defense.”

    During the trial, prosecutors probed Wafer’s inconsistent testimony on whether he intended to fire, and questioned why, if he was shooting in fear for his life, he put his gun down by the front door. They also called upon jurors in closing arguments to consider why he didn’t make a more vigorous effort to call the police before turning to his gun, rather than making himself “judge, jury, and executioner.”


    I think this is justice served.
    Yeah, I agree. The shooter is going to get the book thrown at him: he was afraid of a black woman in the middle of the night, so he shot her... A great example of misuse of firearms by such people that should not have them to begin with.

    People often have a hard time understanding the racism that exists in all of us simply as a by-product of having grown up in here. They seem to think that because they are not overtly prejudice that it doesn't exist in them and, primarily because of unrecognized or unacknowledged privilege, there is simply not enough at stake for them to confront themselves and insist on any real objectivity. It's this reality that makes it pretty difficult for me to believe that it this had been a little white girl knocking on this guys door in the middle of the night, this never would have happened.

    Racist bs.
    "Banging, pounding, and kicking", he said.
    He shot immediately and he didn't get a look at the person until after he shot.
    So stop with the racist bs.
