How closely related are we talking about? Son, or fifth cousin three times removed on his ex-wife's side?

The teen boy, Todd Smith, was a SnoCo deputy's stepson.  He left a graduation party, and apparently got lost on the way home.  Just tragic.

WTF? That kid was white. How do things like this happen?
 
2021-06-07 10:08:13 PM  
That homeowner will eventually be arrested. I suppose the teen was unarmed and likely drunk if leaving a graduation party.

I did watch that one, and I'd have to disagree. This was on the guys property, the kid was warned, the kid still kept coming. This isn't one of those where a homeowner shot someone in the back, or it was in public over something stoopid.

It is still sad, but this is a situation where no one is "right" or "wrong."

Weird.

Fox news had two separate takes. One article calls the victim a "man" and basically reads like you'd expect fox to cover a shooting for GQP readers.

But shockingly another affiliate had an article with pictures of the teen, more details about the incident, and interviews with his high school friends. Apparently he was shirtless and kept advancing?

Tragic story

I once had someone do that. They were even trying to open my front door but thankfully it was locked. I didn't get out my gun because it's Canada and why in the fark would I need a gun? I talked to them out the window and told them they had the wrong place. I didn't call the cops because they left and went to the house with all of the cars parked outside and blaring music.

You're assuming EVERYTHING the killer said is true. I'm not quite ready to do that given that the killer could have just sat inside his castle, firearm in hand, and waited for the teen to breach his door. Did he do that? No. He instead decided he needed to go outside and confront this person who presented no imminent threat to him.

In this case I'm sort of hopeful that the cop-family connection causes this case to get a solid investigation.

My take is the guy went out with his gun to confront the kid that he was so afraid of instead of waiting for the 911   responders that he had already called. If he would have "stood his ground" from inside his house then no one would have died and the police would have handled the drunk kid

My take is the homeowner had family in his home he feared for, went out to confront the threat and encountered a belligerent drunk that grew up on action movies and video games and privilege who then proceeded to Fark Around...

Not a gun owner and probably will never be a gun owner, but since you brought it up, I am curious as to the number you mentioned.
Is it really a significant number? Or one case a year out of 300 million people that gets national coverage?

In the article it states the homeowner had called 911. This was a teenager, and he probably was visibly drunk. Is this homeowner that much of a scared little girl he couldn't handle a teenager? What stopped him exactly from just returning to his home, locking the door, and waiting for police? This guy made a conscious decision to either just protect himself, or to take a human life. He was a scared little baby who panicked, the last person who should ever have been allowed to own a gun. He might as well be Homer Simpson and use his gun to change the TV channel.

Yeah, I'm a gun owner.  I have also been a drunk teenager.  I don't think this is the way it would have played out if the kid showed up at my door.  He probably would have gotten like a glass of water and a stern talking to.  Maybe a sandwich.  Very unfortunate.

One time a friend woke up at like 3AM, there was a guy high on meth or something trying to break into his house. My friend yelled at him while he called the cops and the guy wouldnt stop. He got his gun out just in case but still went first with the baseball bat.

The guy finally gave up and ran away before the cops got there.

It was on the shooter's property

Unless you're saying the shooter kidnapped this guy so he could drag him back to his house at 4 in the morning and shoot him, I'm not seeing why you'd assume the shooter's story has holes in it.

Attacking an armed howmeowner defending his home is terminally stupid, not capital punishment, a right reserved to the State.

There's a huge difference between "drunk walking on someone's land" and attempting to break into their house and advancing towards them when confronted.

If it happened as reported I find no fault with the homeowner.

"The investigation also determined that the teen is related to a Snohomish County sheriff's deputy."

Ooh. Sorry about your luck Mr Homeowner.

How closely related are we talking about? Son, or fifth cousin three times removed on his ex-wife's side?

The teen boy, Todd Smith, was a SnoCo deputy's stepson.  He left a graduation party, and apparently got lost on the way home.  Just tragic.


Hell, I was 28. I went to a party at a coworkers house to mourn the loss of the restaurant we all worked at went out of business. We had tons of alcohol there. The owners sons were there (also a fellow manager as I was and the other the chef) and grabbed plenty of our favorite bottles for shots and beer. I drove there, and then got too drunk. I started sleeping on the couch. At some point I got it in my head and I had to go home. I drove there but knew I couldn't drive. I figured I'd then walk home.
They had a pool so I was swimming that night. Before I left looked for my shirt and couldn't find it. I then looked for my shoes and couldn't find them. I said ok, guess I got to go home like this. I left and started walking, I started to realize how chilly it had gotten. It then dawned on me a shoeless, shirtless guy walking at four in the morning might be suspicious.I decided to go back. I started walking towards where I thought she lived. I couldn't find it. So, I saw three steps off a yard going to the sidewalk and just sat there. A little while later a car backs out of the driveway. "Who are you? What are you doing" I told here exactly what I just said. Being a nice county in St Louis Missouri she trusted me and even offered to take me home. She even lent me a knitted sweater thing in her back seat as she saw I was shivering.I have no clue who she is/was, but am grateful for her understanding not everyone is doing something wrong.

I'm guessing in Texas I would have been killed and she would just say I was outside waiting to ambush rape her. Shooting me was the only way. Me being almost naked, I could see her getting off.
