Complete and utter bullchit.
And the lady saying "my baby didn't deserve that" blah blah blah. Her son had a choice and obviously made a bad one. Any choice is subject to consequences.
Kudos to Samarai Jack if he can prove it was 100% self defense.
Totally agree to "Samarai Jack" comment...
If that was the last line of defense for him...Although I would have hated to have seen the destruction
And, yeah...the intruder sounds like he was a grown man...His sister did reflect that he had no buisness being there in somebody elses home...She needs to realize that he could have attempted something that got him killed also, and not just assume that he was killed by excessive force...
