    I will definitely agree that a drunk and/or stoned person is a lot more likely to bang on a door than a sober, not stoned person.

    Personally, if he is a union supporting liberal, then burn him to the max and make it a twofer, if he ain't, give him a medal for helping clean up and improve America.

    if you have any factual support to back up the claim that the county prosecutor adopted the knocking from the family please provide it, id love to read it so far its nothing but a lie.

    Manslaughter, probably.... but whether voluntary or involuntary, I haven't enough info.

    "White homeowner kills black woman"? Wtf. Total race baiting.

    Maybe the girl tried to open the screen door initially.

    Either way, the man acted irresponsibly.

    So far, it looks like manslaughter. He probably did not intend to kill someone before opening the door, but his actions after opening the door resulted in him shooting her. His actions, his reaction, after shooting her do not sound like it was an accident. If she was shot from a distance, it wasn't self defense. So...that leaves manslaughter--he killed her, probably on purpose, but not with malice of aforethought.

    However...the victim is not without blame. I'd have a hard time with this if I was on the jury. On one hand, you can't shoot people for just being on the porch. But, you shouldn't be drunk off your ass on someone's porch at 2-3 in the morning either.

    Those being your thoughts, I'd say that you, DV, have ZERO credibility....but YES to hatred and fear...and ignorance..
