    If you don't like the word "sauntering" then why don't you tell me how a stoned person walks and acts?

    I first got my information from another another poster....Oceanview, I think it was and I didn't believe him/her so I googled it and then found out she/he was right. It happens all the time around here.

    NO.

    It's relevant whether or not the freeze when I tell them to and show their hands when told to. Until that is settled, nothing else matters.

    On a battlefield, you really think it matters if it is a 10yr old or a 50yr old pointing an AK at you? The only things that matter then are who pulls the trigger first and how good their aim is.

    If it does matter to you, then, would you prefer burial or cremation?

    Same for someone breaking into a house, waving a gun at people, etc. If they are acting violently, then it becomes you or them. I'm not sorry I prefer me to them.

    I was responding to another poster who was referring to the crime of rape......see....

    "...Hell, as long as he doesn't say so, a potential rapist can initiate an attack and if the woman fights back and is a little stronger than he thought, he can shoot her and claim self-defense as long as there is no one to verify that he intended to rape her."

    Next time please read my posts in context to what I'm responding to. Thanx.

    So it sounds like you are saying that he was "sauntering" and his gate implies what exactly? That he is a criminal? Have you ever smoked pot? Believe me....it does not make you hostile or a threat. Besides, the information I saw regarding the amount of marijuana in his system was that it was so minimal that it was considered irrelevant.

    Do you see the many assumptions made in your post?

    It's relevant in the sense that age can be indicative of intentions or physical capability. The mere fact that the perpetrator was young, or conversely elderly, shouldn't override the facts of the case though. We've seen that very young or even senior individuals are capable of unimaginable brutality given the right circumstances.
