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.

Your Dance Instructor: Strategeryz0r: The Division? Man I wish you could waste the homeless people in The Division. But no, instead they get to beg you for shiat and you either give it to them or they call you names and get mad.

Just like real life.


While waiting for the bus maybe back in February or March of 2016 I was having a smoke when a (non-homeless from appearances) guy walked up and asked me for one. Taking out a cigarette at a public bus stop is almost as bad as opening a bag of Skittles in elementary school because you're going to get swarmed like an amateur white housewife in a BBC hotel gangbang shoot.

I don't mind handing out a smoke but they add up so the standard price at least here in Ohio seems to be fifty cents for a bummed one. I don't think anybody had asked me yet prior to one fellow wandering over but since the fellow couldn't even be bothered to say "please" I said I needed fifty cents for one. He started biatching and digging into his pockets like he was going to get it but he wasn't really so much as getting the money as buying time to wear me down. Once it became apparent he wasn't going to pay me I flat out told the guy no.

Ooooooh boy, that guy started cussing me out and repeatedly made comments about how I was like then private citizen Donald Trump because I wouldn't give him a smoke. I wish I could remember all the stuff he said because he went on for two minutes or so just yelling shiat out about how I was Trump.

It was somewhat surreal but the guy probably would have been handed a free smoke if he hadn't acted like I owed him one. I'll never understand people who don't realize the power of "please" and "thank you," you want somebody to do you a favor and can't even be bothered with the minimum standards of courtesy?

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.

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.

The latter group knows there's nothing to protect but illusion.  The former group has a dream of a safe space that they think a gun can preserve, but still has to spend a third of their life asleep... and unless the gun is one of those automated sentry guns from Aliens, it won't make the dream real.

Like I said, you've obviously never been robbed.

No, they put bracelets on her and that was that, even though the vehicle was used in the commission of a felony.

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...



Sometimes parents are in denial.  My younger brother is mentally ill, and my parents somewhat enabled him over the years.  I think they finally "got it" when he was arrested and sitting in jail, awaiting his trial.  (I don't want to get into the details, but I will say that he never physically harmed anyone....although that could have happened eventually.)

BigSquibowski: Seems to me the latter group has given up on society and feel it's not worth protecting.
The former group just wants to be left alone and believes in upholding the social contract.


Nah, the latter group hasn't given up.  Both believe in the social contract.  The "give up" people realize you can't prop up a social contract on your own with locks and guns.  This explains both the before and after for them: before, they never felt like they had a "safe bubble" because they know the social net is imperfect and that trying to physically secure yourself is mostly futile.  After the robbery, they understand that there's no quick fix, either physically or socially.   Any solution to the problem will have to be social-- even if the social solution is "everyone is now armed, takes watch shifts, and agrees to shoot robbers."

Saying "nothing can change that" was perhaps a bit glib and oversimplified on my part.  What I should have said there was something more like "there's nothing you can do alone to change this."   Arming yourself can't fix a social problem.  That requires a social fix.

But none of this was to argue that one of the options (gun or no gun) was better than the other-- just to try to explain why some people don't experience that brutal "loss of sanctuary" after a robbery.  They didn't think they had sanctuary, and they don't believe it's something you can achieve alone.  So they don't feel the loss, and they don't see buying a gun as a fix-- but that doesn't mean they don't see the problem and want it fixed.  It means they saw the problem before the robbery, too.

heres some more detail on the story:  http://heavy.com/news/2017/09/katie-layne-quackenbush-nashville-home​le​ss-man-shooting-photos-music/


interesting information:

Melton...the victim...is well known in the area, and despite being a fark up who keeps ending up homeless, and is not  known for being violent or threatening.
Also has a decent singing voice.

Quackenbush and her friend...decided after shooting a homeless dude, to go out to a Dennys (or whatever other dive was still serving food after 3am.

raygundan: BigSquibowski: It's basically a rape of your sanctuary in this world, and if you can't understand why that is worth protecting, I don't know what to tell you.

I think there's two broad types of people on this: people who think they have some sort of sanctuary, and people who are honest with themselves and understand that they don't have any, and that nothing can actually change that.

The latter group knows there's nothing to protect but illusion.  The former group has a dream of a safe space that they think a gun can preserve, but still has to spend a third of their life asleep... and unless the gun is one of those automated sentry guns from Aliens, it won't make the dream real.


I do think you're right about the 2 groups, but not right about the motivations.
Seems to me the latter group has given up on society and feel it's not worth protecting.
The former group just wants to be left alone and believes in upholding the social contract.

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.

Don't forget. 
You can walk in on someone robbing your house, the robber can drop what they have and run away.  You can chase them for 3 blocks, corner them, and force a confrontation.  At that point, you fear for your life and have to stand your ground and shoot the bad man.

something tells me you didn't graduate at the top of your class at Harvard Law.


There was at least one case where a guy picked a fight with someone, started losing, and decided to even things out by shooting the other dude.

If she feared for her life, why did she get out of the car? fark her so hard.

Same reason she fled the scene.. "she was afraid for her life and acted irrationally"

Wonder if the prosecution can prove that she was drinking.

It was 3:30 in the morning. What do you think?


Oh I am sure she was. If you are a legal hand gun owner and discharge your weapon, if alcohol is involved things can get a bit tricky for the defense... and the possibility of a DUI when fleeing.

Hope they throw the book at her.

Fled the scene too... as is the "responsible gun owner" thing to do.

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.


She got out of her car to yell at the guy, then was half of an escalating  screaming match with a homeless guy and when he didn't back down she returned to her car, got her gun and tried to murder him.  Maybe she was afraid of the consequences after she shot him, but at no point before leaving the scene did she act like someone who was at all scared, she acted like an opportunistic predator.

But they didn't nor did they provide any other information about searching the vehicle or impounding it as evidence.

No, they put bracelets on her and that was that, even though the vehicle was used in the commission of a felony.

This is the kinda crap we should be talking about, not her honkers or the fact that's she's rich white trash bingo.


if you were paying attention you'd have learned she turned herself over a week after the shooting so drawing blood wouldn't be particularly usefull.

Nah, the latter group hasn't given up.  Both believe in the social contract.  The "give up" people realize you can't prop up a social contract on your own with locks and guns.  This explains both the before and after for them: before, they never felt like they had a "safe bubble" because they know the social net is imperfect and that trying to physically secure yourself is mostly futile.  After the robbery, they understand that there's no quick fix, either physically or socially.   Any solution to the problem will have to be social-- even if the social solution is "everyone is now armed, takes watch shifts, and agrees to shoot robbers."

Saying "nothing can change that" was perhaps a bit glib and oversimplified on my part.  What I should have said there was something more like "there's nothing you can do alone to change this."   Arming yourself can't fix a social problem.  That requires a social fix.

But none of this was to argue that one of the options (gun or no gun) was better than the other-- just to try to explain why some people don't experience that brutal "loss of sanctuary" after a robbery.  They didn't think they had sanctuary, and they don't believe it's something you can achieve alone.  So they don't feel the loss, and they don't see buying a gun as a fix-- but that doesn't mean they don't see the problem and want it fixed.  It means they saw the problem before the robbery, too.

So can the dirtbag who took it. Seems there's never a shortage and won't be until they are culled or face real consequences.

Culled? JFC what's wrong with you?


I've been asking myself the same about you.

"A homeless man was yelling at me!"

Yes, that can be frightening.

"So I grabbed my firearm and exited the vehicle."

Hey, now, that's not a good idea.  You're already sitting in a 4000lb mobile-bunker with locking doors.  You can just drive off.

"I came around to the other side of the vehicle...."

That's an even worse idea.

"closed my eyes, fired two warning shots, and drove off!"

It's replaced because you have to spend your hard-earned money on something...because some piece of shiat stole from you.

You're barking way up the wrong tree if you think RawStory is some kind of closet racist rag. They're very professional, for a tabloid, and more sympathetic to brown people than white people. But you had to find a way to be offended, didn't you?

Oh. I'll admit it would be revenge. Sweet everloving revenge mixed with a tinge of righteous justice.
I know I'm in a callous minority here in thinking that someone who has no respect for others(thieves, rapists, and a host of other wastes of skin) should not be afforded any respect for their lives either.

Yes, I've been robbed.  Twice. Once at gunpoint. They've taken my father's guns (he's dead, they were all I had of him), my mother's jewelry (she's dead too btw) and things from my grandmother that I will never be able to replace.

Still not worth STUFF, no matter what that stuff is. Killing another human is not worth throwing my life away over stuff.


I had a piece of shiat roommate who stole from me....and I will be honest...if I had a free pass when it came to shooting somebody, he would be at the top of my list.

/Recently found out he died last year.
//GOOD.

Damn, sorry to hear.  I was robbed another time for a total of 3, and I'm pretty sure it was an ex roomie who was pissed that I moved out at the end of the lease.  Anyway, that was "only" 16 milk crates of albums lovingly collected through HS & college, stored in one of those stupid chicken wire and 1X2 frame areas in my apartment building.  I would have liked to beat them into unconsciousness.


So you do get it. Like I said, hobbling was my first choice but in our society murder is preferable to maiming for some strange reason!

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.

Don't forget. 
You can walk in on someone robbing your house, the robber can drop what they have and run away.  You can chase them for 3 blocks, corner them, and force a confrontation.  At that point, you fear for your life and have to stand your ground and shoot the bad man.

As it should be. There would be no risk of a confrontation if the human garbage was not in your house taking your shiat. You steal, you started the chain of events. Don't break in, don't get shot-easy peasy.

Not exactly as you described, but you may have been thinking of this:
http://blogs.findlaw.com/blotter/2012/03/fl-man-cleared-in-stand-your​-​ground-stabbing.html
Garcia chased the alleged car-radio thief -- Pedro Roteta, 26 -- for more than a block, the Herald reports. Roteta, carrying a four-pound bag of car radios, swung the bag at Garcia's head; Garcia blocked the bag with one hand and stabbed Roteta in the chest.
Roteta's swinging of the bag could have caused serious bodily injury or death, and placed Garcia in fear for his life, the judge wrote.
Still, after the fatal stabbing, Garcia did not call 911. Instead, he hid the knife and sold two of Roteta's car radios, then initially denied the killing when interviewed by police. None of those facts played into the judge's decision.


SYG is a f*cked up law. Castle doctrine and existing self-defense laws provided adequate coverage for actual SYG instances. The above-referenced case, Zimmerman, and maybe this girl, now? Not standing their ground. If you follow someone, run after them, or exit your vehicle to confront, YOU are the instigator, at that point. I really don't see how a judge could honestly rule 'self-defense' in those cases, but they did, thanks to SYG laws on the books.

Like I said, you've obviously never been robbed. It's not about the possessions(although my wife may say differently after some pillhead stole her great grandmother's engagement ring along with other things). It's basically a rape of your sanctuary in this world, and if you can't understand why that is worth protecting, I don't know what to tell you. I would prefer to just hobble the farkers who did it, so their limp would forever remind them, but you're damn right I would have killed them on the spot. Not all life is equal.
