Even the "castle doctrine" isn't going to serve as a defense for chasing someone for a quarter-mile and killing them with an ax.

I've been robbed twice before, and yeah, I'd like to kill the people who did it. But it never crossed my mind to kill the first person I saw after the robbery.

And yes, I think the death penalty for home robbers is appropriate.

The charge "manslaughter" should require that one actually eats the dead person, hence "slaughter".

Especially since running with an ax is a LOT of work, as is killing someone with one. Hitting anything with an ax takes a lot of effort, and there's no way you don't take deliberate thought with each swing, so that bad boy doesn't bounce off and hit you in the shin or anything.

/ I still get a weird feeling in my stomach whenever I think about the ax manslaughter scene in Where the Red Fern Grows

Dude, "manslaughter" is not the preferred nomenclature.

"Personslaughter," please.

I axed him four times, and he wouldn't answer.

"Yeah, I was coming for him like 'Deliverance"

A) That's no way to talk yourself out of a murder rap ,son.
B) I think you are going to reenact more scenes from Deliverance once you get sent to Chino. SQUEEEEAALLL!!!!

When Zinda saw Valdez outside, his initial thought that he was one of the burglars "was absolutely the right thing to think," Johnson said.

I might think that, too. I think, however, chasing the guy for a quarter mile and killing him is a little outside "Standing your ground."

"Did he feel horrible about it? Yes," Johnson said. "Is he a coldblooded murderer? Absolutely not."

I'll agree with that part. I'm sure he was quite warm, what with all the running and murderous rage

Yeah, I mean beautiful day like today and I'm stuck inside y'know just choppin up this couple. I mean a nice young couple! He's a cable installer, and she's a dentist. There aren't a lot of women dentists. I don't know why that is. Gee I guess there's one fewer now, huh?

Hits you like an ax.

I don't know what kind of shape Valdez was in, but you can bet if some guy was chasing me with an ax, he would have never caught me. I can run a lot faster than you can scared than you can mad. And also Zinda had drank however much of the half-gallon of Captain Morgan. Obviously, it's a terrible thing that happened, but good god - I would have been breaking the sound barrier there.

Honey it's getting close to midnight
And all the myths are still in town
True love and lipstick on your linen
Bite the pillow, make no sound
If there's some living to be done
Before your life becomes your tomb
You'd better know I'm the one
Unchain your back door, invite me around

Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Bring your daughter, bring your daughter to the slaughter
Let her go, let her go, let her go
Let her go, yeah!

He should have used bear spray and called the cops.

How is it that the victim came out from the party to find that his car had made its way into (and got stuck in) a ditch all by itself?

How do the buddies account for the victims actions since they were so busy chasing down some stray horses that randomly escaped at three in the morning but were conveniently recovered before anyone else could verify the escape?

How do we know the victim didnt actually rob the killers house?

Because his buddies say so?
 
2012-11-30 08:03:57 PM
You can't make things like that up, son. Killing people is wrong, destroying demons is good. Don't worry, God will send you your own list when you're older.

Who may or may not have burgled the guy's house is not relevant to the case. But you knew that, right?

I'm not defending the ax-murderer.  It just looks to me like the victim may have played a part in his fate.

I'd go with the "Knock down, drag out rock 'n' roll party in the streets" defense.

Really, how farking incompetent do you need to be to hit someone in the head, with a farking axe, that it takes four chances to 'get it right'?

Chair, injection, hanging, just get this Sack of shiat out of here.

I hit him, and his head was still there. So I hit him again! Whack! But the head STILL was there. A third time! Goddamn, I just couldn't take that head off right! I've heard medieval executioners got it off with one chop! Me, I needed four! I'm just not good at this head-chopping thingy!

Going to guess that had any property belonging to the defendant was found in or near the victim the defense would have that front and center.

By being in the wrong place at the wrong time? I see nothing in the article connecting the victim to the burglary...did he have any of the guy's possessions? Were his prints or other physical evidence found in the guy's house?

Even if the victim did have anything to do with the burglary (and there's nothing to indicate that he did), no way is this justified. Not even close.
 
2012-11-30 09:39:29 PM
If he had simply whacked the victim with the axe, i'd agree, manslaughter.

But he went back to make sure he was dead. That's premeditation and a deliberate act.

Give him the needle.

You are a rank moron. No, really, there is no other way to describe you. You invented stuff out of whole cloth and used that in this thread to blame the victim for this. I can only hope that you wind up in front of a jury of your true peers some day.

Well, that's why I called him a murderer and not a hero.

Sure there is.

I'm a Taurus, I like my steaks rare, my preferred drink is Bacardi & Diet Coke, Im 43 years old and I look like Woody Harrelson with an extra 10 pounds on him.
