The Eternal Second Amendment, Hallowed Be Its Name, guarantees the NRA-given RIGHT to protect one's self against the transgressions of a derelict government. Our government is DEFINED as by 'of the people, for the people, by the people', one of which is obviously this homeless person aka 'derelict'. Ipso Facto:

It was Ms Duckcrotch's Constitutional DUTY to eradicate that dangerously out of control government element before he grabbed her gun, levied a stamp tax, or commandeered her Porsche for accommodation for his army of homeless dog.

She shot a man in Nashville, just to see him die.  Hey, you know, that has a snappy Country Music vibe to it.

alleged was used 5 time is a sparsely worded 5 paragraph article. i wonder how many times that word wouldn't be used if she were a darker shade of "presumed innocent"

Well, to be honest, if she were DSoPI, the cops would have shot her with their eyes wide open, and "alleged" would have no practical meaning in the scenario.

His strongest argument is that she was threatened.

It'll fall apart once the prosecution points out she was safely in her car and could've easily left. Instead she got out and shot the guy twice, apparently with her eyes closed.

Considering Florida has said its self-defense to drive home, get your gun, drive back, and then shoot the guy who was "threatening" you by being black and playing that hippty-hop music without even knowing you existed, she may have a case.

Quackenbush this week was arrested after she allegedly shot 54-year-old homeless man Gerald Melton after he asked Quackenbush to move her Porsche SUV because its exhaust fumes and loud music were impairing his ability to sleep

Daddy's a lawyer... She drives a Porsche... and is an "aspiring singer".

I'm shocked she didn't pour gasoline on the poor guy and set him on fire after she shot him.

"She feared for her life..."  Sure, she did.

The crazy part (to me) is that she almost certainly would have gotten away with it if she'd just called 911, and then her (attorney) father.

I mean - what is wrong with someone that they think calling the cops is optional after shooting a guy?

The word still would have been used five (or however many) times. It has nothing to do with the genetic makeup of the defendant.

A person is alleged to have done a thing until CONVICTED of doing that thing. Even podunk newspaper people are aware of this and will not state that "Jim-Bob Cletusson shot Billy-Bob Cletusson" until Jim-Bob is convicted.

News orgs would quickly be sued into oblivion if they did not take pains to indicate that so-and-so is alleged to have done X unless and until convicted.

Article didn't add anything from previous one and/or people already mentioned she had previous cases.
Doesn't mention one of those assaults was on her mom.

I see three things wrong with this story:

1 - He clearly dunked her head in a toilet full of bleach before she fired.
2 - He tried to steal her soul, but the joke was on him - she didn't have one.
3 - She used silver bullets but it was a vampire, not a werewolf.

2017-09-13 12:03:02 PM  
The saddest part about this thing is, that even if this lady (to use the term loosely) goes to jail, this poor homeless guy is just going to be back where he started plus a few additional health concerns from getting shot (assuming he survives).  There's no such thing as justice.

Quackenbush's father, Texas attorney Jesse Quackenbush, defended his daughter after her arrest by claiming that the homeless man was threatening to kill her shortly before she decided to get out of the car and fire her weapon at him.

After three assault charges the father still manages to defend the monster he raised.  I'm curious why he thinks she shouldn't have just driven away if she was being attacked.  I mean, unless he was a scanner, she'd probably be safe in a moving car...

Fleeing the scene after shooting someone in self defense is actually reasonable and rational.  You don't know the guy is dead, you don't know that he doesn't have friends that heard everything happen and are on their way to help.

Now, this leaving the scene also requires immediately calling the cops, informing them there's a guy bleeding, you did it, it was self defense, you didn't feel safe staying at the scene, and as soon as the cops show up you'll come right back so they can take your statement.
