A 34-year old felt threatened by a 72-year old Alzheimers dude? Real tough guy there.


I call it the "I'm so very scared" defense.

"You shot that guy in cold blood!"
"I was terrified."
"He's a senile 97-year-old man with diabetes and Alzheimer's!"
"He scared me to death."
"He was completely unarmed!"
"Yep. Terrified. Frightened out of my wits."
"All he did was ring the doorbell!"
"So very scared. Felt so threatened. Much fear."
"He didn't even come into the house!"
"Did you miss the part where I was absolutely terrified?"
"Did you even try to call the cops??"
"Scared. Oh so scared. You just can't imagine how scared."
"So what you're saying is you're a complete and utter pussy who shoots first and asks questions later."
"Now you're getting it!"

If you turn "I was so very scared" into a legal defense, you get shiat like this. If the choice is between admitting that you're a complete coward entirely incapable of assessing the threat level of a given situation (and therefore should probably not be trusted with anything more lethal than a Crayola crayon) or going to jail for three and a half for man-two, you'll happily admit to being a coward - and be allowed to keep your weapons afterwards.

"I was scared" shouldn't be a legal defense because it doesn't have anything to do with the victim. It has to do with the shooter's perception of the victim. That's something the victim has no control over. If my neighbor is a shoot-first paranoid, I can't fix that. Besides, we scare too easily in this country.

Seventy-two year-old Ronald Westbrook suffered from Alzheimer's. He had been walking around in the cold for about four hours with his dog...

What happened to the dog?

I suppose that as Russia is preoccupied with Ukraine right now it is their best chance but there's no guarantee Putin won't roll some tanks in again.

The only way to stop a bad elderly Alzheimer's patient with a gun is with a good elderly Alzheimer's patient with a gun.

Olo Manolo: The number of Farkers that apparently have an amazing ability to make snap calls about people's intentions and mental status when they were just scared awake at 4am, based on a shadow that attempted to make entry into their residence then approached when told to stop. (You should all be making a lot more money than you do. Law enforcement agencies and psychological facilities would pay lots of money for that magical ability)


There sure are a lot of farkers who are literally scared of shadows.  You know how you deal with shadows?  YOU TURN ON THE FARKING PORCH LIGHT!

Things in this thread that don't surprise me:

The number of people that see no reason for "stand your ground" type laws, because nobody has ever been a victim of violence and needed to defend themselves. (And had that been the case, the police would have been just around the corner with teddy bears to defuse the situation.)

The number of idiots that think everybody who owns a firearm is a bloodthirsty loon, with no life outside of hunting down innocent people.

Things in this thread that do surprise me:

Yeah, the guy is a pussy and he made a poor decision that cost somebody their life. But everybody that is trying to frame this situation as "He clearly saw that it was an innocent old Alzheimer's patient kindly begging for a blanket, and shot him just for the fun of it because gun owners are like that" is misrepresenting what happened to make it fit their own narrative about "those crazy farking gun-nuts".

The cops would have shown up and shot the old man anyhow. The kid just saved the government a lot of paperwork.

AgentKGB: Hell I used to work with a woman who had to call the cops at 2 am because a drunk guy was tearing up her flower garden. He mistook her house for his house and was looking for the rock his spare house key was under. I hate to think how many "drunk idiot thinks they're home" calls the police get every night.


having been on the other end of the 'going into the wrong house due to confusion' these sorts of laws make me nervous. CSB time: a friend had invited myself and 2 other friends to his apartment for a party. He told us it was the white house on a specific street, that it was between the 2 stone churches and to just go in the front door and up the stairs, his apartment was at the top. turned out there were THREE stone church's on that road (he assumed we'd be coming the other direction) so we just walked right into a private citizens home and start going up their stairs when a confused man confronted us. we appologised profusely and left, but with the way these laws and attitudes are changing, how many embaressing but innocent situations like that are going to end up as shootings?

walktoanarcade: Mentat: Have we really become such terrified, pants-shiatting morons that we can't identify an elderly, demented person as NOT A THREAT?

No, I would have opened the door (after seeing an elderly man shivering from cold with a dog he was walking no less) and let him in if he was in dire need (as he was).

I'm against letting old people freeze to death and I'm unafraid of most people.

If he didn't "get it" after explaining he's in the wrong place, it may be time to  ask him to check his wallet for the address.  Calling the police would happen if he got punchy or kicky.


99% of the time, your plan would result in the rape of your family and pets, and your death by something horrible (begging for it by the end).  If that's how you want to go out, trying to help an "old man with dementia who was walking his dog and was lost outside for hours", go ahead.  I'll be the one that lives because I shoot everyone that approaches.

The real heartbreak is that the elderly Alzheimer's patient was too far gone in his illness to understand that he should always be well-armed whenever he takes his dog out for a walk at night.

Endive Wombat: FTFA:"Westbrook knocked on the door and tried to enter to Hendrix's home in Chickamauga, and was then later confronted Hendrix outside the home.

Hendrix then shot at Westbrook when he felt he was being physically threatened. Westbrook was fatally shot once in the chest.

The 911 call came in about 4:00am on November 27, 2013 from a home on Cottage Crest Court. Investigators say 34-year-old Joe Hendrix of Ooltewah shot Westbrook who had been walking around the outside of the home for several minutes and repeatedly ringing the doorbell."


That is not self defense, that was not standing his ground, that was some asshole looking to use his gun.  He exercised very poor judgement and decided to be a tough guy rather than lock his door and call 911 immediately.  There was several minutes between initial contact to shooting.  This is murder through and through.

I mean...this mothafarka actually left the relative safety of his domicile...with his farking gun and the local DA is still refusing to prosecute him?  WTF Georgia?


Yeah he should have stayed inside and waited for some unknown assailant (who had already tried to force his way in )to start shooting through  the windows .
