Maybe he was just like his father: too bold.
 
2014-05-05 12:19:53 AM  
I didn't realize he'd been found guilty and sentenced already.

Good.

How he thought the audio would exonerate him, I have no idea.

Dammit, murder!

I really have no issue with the verdict based on TFA....he planned on killing whomever broke in.  That being said, I don't really feel too sorry for the kids...if you don't want to get shot, don't break into someone's home.

And if that is all he had done, killed them upon initial confrontation, he might have gotten away with it.  The whole dragging them into the basement on a tarp, and then shooting them again because they were still alive is what got him convinced.

Even if he was planning to catch them in the act, its pretty easy to convince a jury that at that moment you were fearing for you life and defending yourself.  Several minutes later, when the are incapacitated is a whole different story.

Exactly.  Having a tarp and dragging them to it before shooting them again showed premeditation.

Death?  They had death coming to them?

I understand that anyone breaking into a home faces is risking their ass, but I'm hard pressed to say they got what they deserved.
 
2014-05-05 05:17:58 AM  
You have to admit that on some level they asked for it. I mean, I wouldn't have done it that way, but they were in HIS house. For the third time.

If he'd only shot them once he'd be considered a hero. It was the whole shooting them in the head while they were down that made him a murderer.

He'd already eliminated any possible threat to his life they may have presented when he shot and disabled them.
They were helpless when he dragged them downstairs and executed them.
That is premeditated murder.

/I rarely use the term, but what that man did was not just malicious, it was farking cold-blooded  evil.
 
2014-05-05 05:26:26 AM  
On a side note, Texas has harsher criminal penalties for burglary of an occupied building. You know, in addition to 80% of homeowners having a pistol under their pillow.

If the minimum wage had been higher these kids might have gone to work that day.

Presuming a proven liar is telling the truth. For all we know, he used some ruse to lure them there.
The verdict is right and proper.
I'm sure all the people who pointed out that George Zimmerman was an innocent man, acquitted in a court of law, will, no doubt, also accept this lawful verdict of the courts.
Yeah, right.

Lots of mental illness in this story. But if you break into someone's house, all bets are off.

AverageAmericanGuy: How he thought the audio would exonerate him, I have no idea.


It could have easily done so if it was something like:

"I'm gonna kill you old man!"

"Don't come any closer! I don't want to shoot!"

But it wasn't, because that's not what happened.
 
2014-05-05 05:31:02 AM  
Hadn't this guy been robbed a couple of times before? And these two were known to have robbed others?

Maybe it would have turned out differently if law enforcement had apprehended them earlier.

Easier said than done, I know. But if you want to stop these things happening in the future, maybe you should look at the reasons why they happen.
I can guarantee this guy would have had a negative view of law enforcement, and he's probably right. The USA isn't exactly known for it's stellar law enforcement.

Pretty sure whatever code of ethics you're referring to, it doesn't cover the malicious behavior recorded here. Sorry to harsh your tradition.

This is like the exact opposite scenario.

George was on his back, being attacked, and fired up. Self defense.

This guy was over someone on their back, and fired down. Murder.

Dude sounds like he may be a danger if left roaming the wilds.

Scummy kids got their just reward.

All round winner.

he did. he moved his truck to make it look like he wasn't home, then hid in the house and waited fro them to show up.


essentially, he went hunting.

I own guns and I feel like I could shot an intruder.

But this is in no way shape or form justified.

2 criminals dead, works for me.

1 ill tempered asshole with a gun removed from society works for me.


Unlike myself with my collection of guns who has never killed anybody and have a reasonably level head........

Dude you called it.

This thread is going to turn into a total cauldron of derp about how those kids "deserved" it and Smith is some kind of property rights hero.

There's derp here... but it may require some special pleading...

That's if we believe him. He might very well have offered them money to photograph them having sex, for all we know. The notion that they ever broke into his house before is also based on the word of this proven liar and psycho.
It's quite conceivable that his entire version of events is a total fabrication.
The only two people who really know are dead.

Oh ok. I see what you're saying.

It's farked up either way

there's a reason burglary isn't a capital crime.

But he would have had to dispense with the best part of his self-made entertainment.

Do idiots who break into a home deserve to be killed?  Maybe not.  Does society lose anything by their deaths?  Maybe not.  Are the teens' parents blameless in all of this?  Maybe not.  Had he not been convicted and sent to jail for the rest of his life, would the old man have been able to live in that same house in peace for the rest of his life?  Maybe not.
 
2014-05-05 05:44:16 AM  
What the fark? Everybody knows you burn the bodies and video recordings in a dumpster on the other side of town and never ever keep evidence of any kind, I've heard.

whidbey: This thread is going to turn into a total cauldron of derp about how those kids "deserved" it and Smith is some kind of property rights hero.


Probably because a lot of people can't really see why some people should go around repeatedly breaking into people's homes and stealing their property in the first place.

This guy isn't getting a pass from me, but nor are the thieves. When it comes to them, it would appear nothing of value was lost.

Because burglars aren't people, I suppose you think you're off the hook.
 
2014-05-05 05:46:58 AM  

LiberalConservative: I wonder if he didn't record the incident if he would have got away with it.


No. The physical evidence still showed that he shot them in one part of the house, moved them - still alive - to another part of the house, then shot them dead.

There is no equivalence here. What Smith did trumped any wrongdoing on their part. He turned into a farking monster. And yeah, you're making excuses for that. Get real.
