Put anyone with a brain on a jury and this guy walks. I hope to hell he isn't dumb enough to plead out.

Agree. There is either some major inconsistentcy in the stories of those that were legally at the home, or this prosecutor is committing career suicide.

there's no jury on earth that would find this guy guilty (unless new evidence is intorduced)... there's no way any sane prosecutor would place their career in jeapordy with a stunt like this.


I'm a lawyer and I assure you that you're wrong on both accounts.

And new evidence will be introduced. Evidence about how great the dead robbers were, just trying to feed their children, and what a violent asshole the homeowner MMA guy was - his life was about hurting other people... "he hurt people for a living" while these poor people who came into his home were really only looking for help - for their children. A few pics of the "victims" smiling and hugging their kids (and pics of their orphaned kids sobbing) and you'll have a conviction.

The jury will "do the right thing" and compromise and give 2nd degree murder instead of 1st degree so the guy will only get 30 years rotting in prison instead of a life sentence.

The one caveat is that if it was a black guy who broke in and a white homeowner who defended himself with lethal force then, and only then, I'll concede that many (not most) juries in the south (particularly texas) would probably not convict.

There was a case here in texas a few years ago where a guy confronted his violent neighbors, took a camera and recorded it, the neighbors ganged up on him and attacked him and he used his (legally owned) gun as a last resort to defend himself. Whole thing was on tape. The guy is now rotting away in prison for 'murder' and a prosecutor got promoted for getting the conviction.

Law and order - for the children.
I'm doubting you're actually a lawyer. 1st degree murder wouldn't be an option to begin with as it clearly wasn't premeditated. Phone Post 3.0
