Lsherm: 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.
Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: Dude, "manslaughter" is not the preferred nomenclature."Personslaughter," please.
iheartscotch: That rug really tied the room together.
Mega Steve: 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
Ed Finnerty: The charge "manslaughter" should require that one actually eats the dead person, hence "slaughter".
TomD9938: 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?
Shenanigans!: Who may or may not have burgled the guy's house is not relevant to the case.
Linkster: 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.

TomD9938: Shenanigans!: Who may or may not have burgled the guy's house is not relevant to the case.I'm not defending the ax-murderer. It just looks to me like the victim may have played a part in his fate.

Gyrfalcon: Linkster: 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!
Shenanigans!: no way is this justified. Not even close.
