    But it wasn't just property damage that led to the shooting.

    To be fair, you must factor in the earlier assault in determining the woman's state of mind (and therefore, her legal culpability). They'd thrown bricks at her. They HIT her with a brick. They came back to throw more bricks at her.

    Their actions (repeated attempts to cause physical harm/injury) AND her state of mind (previously hit with a brick and once again under attack) at that moment is what law enforcement considers when issuing criminal charges.

    I think they made the right choice.

    It justifies self defense. It may or may not justify defending oneself with a bullet.



    The difference is whether or not they are admissible as part of your defense. You cannot say they committed these crimes when they haven't even been charged with them to mitigate the actions of another defendant.

    So now, I concede that the assault charge is a defense for her taking action to defend herself. I don't concede that a bullet was the answer.
    You are not paying attention...... Rev already posted quotes that the cops did charge the brat with aggravated assault...... game over.

    If this woman was charged with say unlawful discharge of a firearm within city limits, or attempted murder, and defense attorney worth a grain of salt would harp on the Arson, Assault, harrassment, menacing, etc.
    Any defense attorney worth a grain of salt would know that to assert that crimes that haven't been charged were committed as a defense for his client would fall under "hearsay" and would be stricken by an objection.

    Once again, the fact one is not charged with a crime does not mean one did not commit a crime.
    Once again, that is not applicable as a defense.


    The law does not make this distinction once the woman uttered she was in fear of her life. As long as she states she was in fear of her life she is authorized to use deadly force, including "a bullet".
    That makes about as much sense as Jimbo and Ed from south park screaming "they're coming right at us" as a defense for killing endangered species.

    You're just floundering around at this point for the sake of argument. We're done. I was looking for a real discussion, not the forum equivalent of a bargument.

    How about aggravated assault of the elderly? Do you have any idea of how easy it is to break the bones of someone 80 years old?..... of how long it takes to heal those old bones?..... of how often old folks die from just a broken hip?

    That brat hit the lady in the chest with a thrown brick..... she's lucky it didn't break a rib and puncture a lung.... if it had she would probably be in the hospital for 2 or 3 months and have a real good chance of dieing from it. That's attempted murder in my book, and don’t even get me started on the arson thing…. That’s attempting to burn someone alive.

    Yes, the boy was a bully and probably a delinquent little thug. However, out of a wide range of options, this woman chose to escalate this longstanding feud to a potentially lethal level.

    If the screw head is stripped a hammer is the only other alternative if you really need to drive the screw.

    She did call the police, they had just left and the kid started in again..... read the whole thread and you might know all of the available facts.

    As recently discussed elsewhere, I have a background where I just might know what I'm talking about. Hysterics really aren't needed here.


    Any defense attorney worth a grain of salt would know that to assert that crimes that haven't been charged were committed as a defense for his client would fall under "hearsay" and would be stricken by an objection.
    Really perry mason? So my attorney could not bring up that the savage I shot in the head had previously burned my garbage, menaced me with a brick, assaulted me with a deadly weapon (brick) and harrassed the **** out of me? seriously?


    How in the world is that "hearsay"?



    Once again, that is not applicable as a defense.
    Back that up. Your wrong. You can bring up the direct criminal behavior towards the person charged as a justification defense to establish self defense. It would be asinine to not be able to.



    That makes about as much sense as Jimbo and Ed from south park screaming "they're coming right at us" as a defense for killing endangered species.

    Your ignorance to the self defense statutes and the requirements thereof are not of my concern.


    I've already proved this in previous posts which you dismissed.



    You're just floundering around at this point for the sake of argument. We're done. I was looking for a real discussion, not the forum equivalent of a bargument.



    Obviously you lost this argument and have gone all emo on me. It's too bad. Don't let the door hit you on the way out my friend.

    And if she had gone back in and called the police? police who had already been out there once? the kids would've left and as soon as the cops were gone they'd have been back.

    restraining orders are worthless pieces of crap. any idea how many people each year are killed by someone with a restraining order against them?

    phone the parents? yeah right. If the parents were worth a dime this kid wouldn't be a thugged out punk. calling the parents would be about as effective and screaming up the chimney.

    Re: good for her. old lady shoots punk kid

    I will add that I think you are confused Jallman, If I am the one on trial, my bad acts cannot be brought up for the most part as it is considered predjudicial, however if I am a defendant for shooting someone. I can bring up the supposed victims crimes against my persons and property to demonstrate to a jury a justification defense. How else would I introduce evidence that met the standards of self defense?
