Armchair_Invective: The Texas "Shoot poor people in the face" (also called Stand Your Ground) laws will exonerate her.


Daddy Texan Lawyer will argue that Stand Your Ground translates into Tennesseean as Stand Your SUV and so it was appropriate to open fire.
 
2017-09-13 12:15:11 PM  
I wonder what a blood test would have found in her system when she was arrested? I suspect that she wasn't in such a fine part of town, in even a Porsche SUV, if she wasn't looking for something. Perhaps in a small plastic bag, and sold in fairly small weight increments...you know, to keep down her "anxiety"...

1. Just a bunch of BAE's hanging out in a dark parking lot like girls do.  At 3am.  With a 5 y/o child waiting at home
2. "She did not mean to hit him" because as any gun safety instructor will tell you, "when in doubt, pull your black market heat out".
3. The man was not a present threat. That is not to say that he had couldn't become a threat, especially if he had verbalized as much, however all you had to do was drive away and call 911
4. "One eyewitness in the front seat" finally, one of them accepted the hush money
5. Parking lots are not an ideal hang out. You're 26, go home and visit. Cut the dope up in the bathroom, duh
6. Prior assault conviction less than 5 yrs ago
But since homeless dude is most likely black without any family and probably has 10x the priors Miss ShootyMcShootface has, they'll show leniency. Homeless dude probably won't press chanrges anyway (think the DA will?  OH HAHAHAHHAHAA), so she'll pay a fine and everyone is happy. Until she" didn't mean to shoot" the next person.  There should be a Melton's law, where crazy biatches have to register for being crazy.  Yeah I know, it would take down all the internets...

phalamir: scottydoesntknow: MaudlinMutantMollusk: I'll say it again: this coont needs prison time

/and again, since it's Texas and daddy is a lawyer, coont won't

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.

bigfatbuddhist: 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...



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.)

Ctrl+F: Drugs 0 of 0....wth with those sleepy eyes
For the record Quackenbush is an established Dutch family name which is an Americanized spelling of Dutch Quackenbosch, a topographic name from Dutch quaak 'swamp' (cognate with the English word quagmire) + bosch 'woodland', 'wilderness'.  The more ya know....I think I got a Quackenbush's bus. card once.

cranked: 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.

/NEVER FORGET PORSCHE 9/11

I was trying to come up with something about her name, but Duckcrotch is way better than anything I had. Kudos.

"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. "

Did he actually use those words?  "Decided to get out of the car and fire"?  And he's a lawyer?  I bet he advertises on TV.

Random Anonymous Blackmail: Crewmannumber6

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.

with blood on the hood
from that dying old homeless man

Oh where in this town
can a poor girl get around
to get her Porsche detailed?

The Circle K car wash?  Oh no.
Through it the Porsche won't go
Them chemicals with cut right through

That homeless guys blood
is thicker 'n mud
Why didn't he bleed somewhere else

Oh my Porsche, my Porsche, my car.
That homeless blood's leached in too far.
Daddy'll have to buy me a new one now.
