I am certainly not saying it is justified. Just not nearly enough evidence to say it wasn't yet.

The prosecution will probably be trying to paint the picture, that is was just a poor girl out there looking for help after an accident. The fact she left twice when help was called for her, and was also very drunk when shot(hours after she crashed because she was drunk in the first place), would make that story impossible to swallow. The default is innocent, the prosecution has to convince of guilt. We don't know what happened, she could have been threatening the guy, then made a sudden stumble toward the door startling him. She put herself in that situation by leaving the scene, then ending up knocking or pounding on a door, who knows what else. Hard to drudge up any sympathy.
Yes I have been in car accidents before, no I wasn't drunk. No I wasn't acting stupid after.edit on Sat, 16 Nov 2013 15:32:50 -0600 by TKDRL because: (no reason given)
And here we have it America!
Here's why we have the game "Polar Bear Hunting".
Making EVERY excuse they can to adjudicate innocence for this guy. Making every attempt to villianize the victim, "She may have made a sudden move to the door". "It's her fault for leaving the scene".
People who are alarmed and frightened by what the black youth are doing...HERE is part of the reason! The youth aren't stupid, and they see the racism and bigotry on display in our country. They see how our judicial system spits at black people. They are reacting violently to a racist country.
DETROIT (Reuters) - A tearful judge on Wednesday sent a white Michigan man to prison for at least 17 years for fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager on his front porch in a racially charged case that sparked protests in the Detroit area.
