    It's still self defense, even if you take intense pleasure in it.

    It's like Ender's Game. He's not just defending himself against that break-in, but also against all future break ins. Preemptive self-defense.

    Good on him for ridding us of these violent thugs.

    Wait, the kids were white? What a tragic accident.

    I'm for merging the first and second amendments anyway. Guns are speech. When you stand your ground, you're sending a message to the world that you are not to be ****** with.


    Exactly. Violence against a man's personal property is the most insidious kind of violence.

    By the way, this is probably the part that will convict him:

    When the female stopped moving, he dragged her by her clothes and into the workshop, too. There, he said, he noticed she was still gasping and didn’t believe she should suffer, so he gave her “a good clean finishing shot,” he said. “She gave out the death twitch.”

    If someone breaks into my home, I will go Django on them. Gun control advocates are quick to forget that firearms are the greatest deterrent to crime the world has ever known. It is not the job of the police to protect my home- it's Mr. K's job and he will do so with great vengeance and furious anger.

    Smith's audio recording isn't needed to establish his guilt. His confession makes it clear that he knew the girl was no longer a threat and consciously chose to put her out of her misery.

    Indeed.


    It's not self-defense when it's disproportionate and when there's no imminent threat. You can't just use deadly force just because somebody's in your house. That's not how the castle doctrine works.

    The castle doctrine means that it's open season on uninvited guests. Just the act of breaking in creates an imminent threat under the doctrine. Unfortunately, Smith's taped confession makes it clear that he no longer considered the girl a threat in his final use of deadly force against her.

    He should have raped their still warm corpses and then released the video on YouTube.

    From the sounds of it, he shot her multiple times before putting one in the head. Didn't want her to suffer? Bull****

    Smith made the rookie error of not invoking his right to remain silent, like some idiotic episode of Bones, probably because he was so coked up on NRA propaganda that he believed self defense law would grant him immunity for any action within his home, no matter what.

    Not to mention the fact that she wouldn't be suffering at all if he hadn't shot her multiple times beforehand.

    Even if this poor old man gets convicted, take heart. Within 20 years it will be legal to display the corpses of intruders in gibbets on our front lawns, as a warning to others.

    Given that those kids lived in Little Falls, MN, population 8,500, you really have to think of this as a mercy killing. Consider them lucky if they were able to find solace for their short time on earth in heroin or meth.

    He must be a horrible shot if they were both still alive after getting hit at close range by a rifle. Pick up some ammo at Wal-Mart and go back to the range, bro.
