ssteedman: South Africans are very jumpy about house burglaries, as a large percentage of them are violent and often lethal, in a way not seen in many other parts of the world.
Smoking GNU: This happened in South Africa, where the usual standard for burglary in an occupied home is to tie the people up, panel-beat them for a while, terrorize them for a while further to get any ad all valuables and then proceed to rape all the females, shoot anyone who disagrees, and then beat toddlers over the head just for fun.South africa is a farked up place to say the least. What happened here is a real tragedy and i feel for the family who lost a member, but burglary leads to vicious and violent murder in that country and being in fear is entirely understandable. Mind you, switching on a light beforehand to actually SEE who it was would be a smart move before shooting, but who thinks clearly when they're scared out of their mind?
MisterRonbo: Also, after that first muzzle flash, you can't see shiat. Plus if you're certain enough to put that first round in to the unknown person, you're going to keep shooting - why wouldn't you? What downside is there to pumping too many rounds in to a (perceived) threat?
pickle65: I'm sure you speak English much better than I speak...whatever language you do, but what in the actual fark are you talking about?
Spaced Cowboy: Wow, I think I just booked a ticket on the bus to hell just by reading this thread.
Tsar_Bomba1: jdamaral: So he shot her twice? Hm.4 times.
BigBooper: My house has a hallway where I can put myself between all our bedrooms and the rest of the house. You better believe that the first thing I'm going to do in a home burglary situation is to move to a defensive position and scream in a very high pitched voice "Who's There! I have a gun!"The wife will of course be calling 911. of course knowing her, As soon as she has contact with the police, she'll be grabbing her own piece.Screw the stuff, I'm not moving away from where my family is. I like to think that I wouldn't shoot at movement, or without identifying who I'm shooting at, but who knows what you'll do when your adrenalin is pumping.
man metaphysical: How does he get a girl like that?
jaybeezey: Tsar_Bomba1: jdamaral: So he shot her twice? Hm.4 times.Either she's a big biatch in real life or he's a great shot....or someone ain't telling the whole story.
Guess_Who: He must've received his firearms training from the LAPD.
ryarger: Despite the fantasies of the "experts" here that believe SA to be a lawless wasteland, the police didn't wait all that long to decide this story was bullshiat and officialy charge him with murder.
God-is-a-Taco: ssteedman: South Africans are very jumpy about house burglaries, as a large percentage of them are violent and often lethal, in a way not seen in many other parts of the world.Yeah, I've read some pretty damning things about South Africa and violent crime. I can't blame someone there for being on edge.If I remember right, people were pretty upset with that World Cup soccer (football) thing being held there for that reason?
o5iiawah: This also goes for the common belief that if you rack a shotgun you're going to scare off a burglar. 9/10x it might scare him off. In the case of burglar who has a piece and knows how to use it, you just told him where you are.
I lurked for two years before I signed up!: Well, that and the farking vuvuzelas...
misanthropologist: I'm just going to take a shot in the dark here and say there's something more to this...
swingerofbirches: I can't imagine how he'd feel. Would you want to kill yourself after something like that? It's horrifying for the girlfriend, but I can't imagine the state of mind he'd be in. It would be surreal.
danielscissorhands: Maus III: danielscissorhands: "..allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend in the early morning hours after mistaking her for an intruder at his Silver Lakes home.""Uhh, excuse me, your honor, is it too late to change my defense again?"[assets.nydailynews.com image 635x437]Oh my dear God....I'd screw that until the new moon.ps: aren't you a she?
zamboni: man metaphysical: How does he get a girl like that?Easy... you just don't lead her as much.
ShawnDoc: Obviously a false flag operation by Obama so he can confiscate all our guns.
CarriePrejean: If only she'd had a handgun to defend herself!!!
huntercr: How did people not know already this was going to happen?[scribble.com image 320x240]/more than 200 comments and not one single reference? For shame! :)
Bonanza Jellybean: It was Dorner. And the dead "girlfriend" is Lennay Kekua.
dittybopper: I lurked for two years before I signed up!: Well, that and the farking vuvuzelas...They have vuvuzelas just for that?
Popcorn Johnny: [i49.tinypic.com image 506x982]4chan is hilarious sometimes.
Smoking GNU: August11: I'm thinking cover-up. He shoots crazy girlfriend after she gets all slappy scratchy, then makes up the home invasion.I'm a hunter, not a home defender. But I'm thinking if I ever raise my Mossberg at an invader, I can't picture pulling the trigger before at least a touch of dialog with the invader.What is the possible scenario? Blood thirsty murder decides to rampage on this guy's house? Blam Blam Blam Blam? Phew. That was close! They're coming for my TV! Blam Blam Blam Blam. Phew. That was close!Nope. This will be a murder trial.You don't have a clue how it is in south africa, do you?

Cagey B: You can hardly blame the man for being a little overzealous to bear arms.
