Homeowner Who Shot And Killed A Girl On His Porch Found Guilty Of Murder | ThinkProgress
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.
