Wilson says charges could be filed but says Hendrix didn't violate any laws by walking out into his own yard.
Yeah, maybe he didn't break any laws, but he sure acted like a complete dumbass. There is no need to go confront someone on your lawn if they
aren't actively breaking in or destroying/stealing property (even then I don't know if I would). The guy knocked on the door. Big freaking deal.
Call the cops, assume the worst and be ready, but don't go out there and get all Rambo for no reason. Puts you at risk, puts the neighbors at risk,
puts the family at risk. It's just a bad idea all around. And for what end? To apprehend the guy yourself? Again, he was knocking on the door.
You can be completely within your rights and still be a gigantic asshat. To me this is like a guy pulling a gun on someone that just robbed a store
and was running out. Yeah, maybe it's legal, but is it worth it?
The age of the deceased gentleman and his advanced stage of Alzheimer's don't factor in to the thing for me. I would be saying the same thing if it
was some punkass drunk kid, or someone with a mental disability or just some idiot that went to the wrong house and thought his buddy was joking
around. Even an actual threat. You don't need to go confront someone. It's a completely useless endeavor and the only reason for it is ego
boosting unless the person was destroying property, harming another person, or stealing something. Even then, only when hurting someone else would I
think it acceptable to shoot. My car isn't worth a life (and I love her), even a scummy one.
Rather get my windows broken, shed set on fire, car peed on than kill someone. Things change if you get in my home, but stay outside and I'm not
shooting or investigating unless you start shooting at me.
I guess I'm just anti gun.
