This Is Weird



A few days ago I read about a guy who was shot and killed why he tried to enter the wrong home in Fort Worth. The shooter was a woman and the lone occupant of the house and had even called 911 while the guy was trying to enter. She shot him once he was successful. From all accounts, it sounded like a drunk guy got lost and tried to enter a home that wasn't his.

Turns out the guy was an SMU graduate and somewhat of a Fort Worth socialite.  Growing up, he did all of the Fort Worth high tone things: Country Day High School and the Steeplechase Club.

I wonder what the story is on this.

(And "Castle Doctrine" or not, this is the kind of case that would never be prosecuted regardless of the black letter of the law.)

Obit.

He should have used the back door.

This would never get prosecuted because the trespasser is dead.

There just really seems to be too damned many people for our planet to support comfortably. And a large percentage are dumb and getting dumber

This is as good a start as any at thinning the herd. The fact that said thinning is almost completely random is irrelevant. Just that the thinning takes place, that's all.

3:30 a.m.

Girl invited him over.

He mistakenly went to a nearby house.

Pretty basic.

So if the scenario continued minus the shooting, and he made it through the door, are you saying he wasn't drunk enough to attempt a sexual assault? The lady should have let him enter, and then coaxed him to the couch for milk, cookies, and a nap? This guy was apparently wasted. As a lawyer, you should know he didn't have the use of his mental or physical faculties, so there is no telling what he would have done.

@1:53 -
the Castle Doctrine deals with prosecuting the shooter, not the shootee
A lone female occupant, facing confrontation with an unknown intruder - even one with a pedigree and the best of misguided intentions - would never be convicted or even charged in his death

Thinning the herd. Really? What a bunch of heartless bastards there are on here.

The kid got drunk and screwed up. Can't blame the lady for shooting (if my wife was facing the same situation, she would've shot), but it's not better that the kid is dead.

It's a tragedy. A son has been lost; a brother has been lost, and there's a woman who probably hates the fact that she did what she had to do.

Its the Law Barry, there is no story. I know his Family and he as well as the Family are OUTSTANDING people...but it was a tragic mistake and he paid the ultimate price. Every action has a reaction. He chose to Drink and made a Bad choice and the Lady was protecting her property and her Life. You cant spin this one trust me. you rattle my door and I call 911 and then your succesful in entering before the Police arrive..you will Die, there will not be a question and answer routine upon entering

Guys,
Barry is defending the lady. Even if there were no "castle doctrine" or "make my day" law, no one is going to fault the woman.

Alcohol is a dangerous vice.

I try to not get so drunk that I walk into the wrong house. Know why? Because I'm scared someone might shoot me.
