Consider that guns have been being registered in some form for many
years. Now consider the fact that many people still think that
registration should implemented. Now consider that nothing has improved.
Here in Indiana, the law holds all participants in a crime to be fully
responsible for all of the results of
that crime. If four men rob a home and kill the homeowner, all four will be
charged with the murder of
the homeowner; if, instead, the homeowner kills one of the robbers, the three
surviving robbers will
be charged with the murder of the dead robber. It appears that Oklahoma law has
provisions. I bet Texas law does, too.
No shit! Why should the second guy be charged with murder?? No murder
was committed. Smells like a liberal. Someone is going to pay for
killing the worthless POC and we will never make it stick on the young
Better check your definitions.
Homicide = Killing of a human being by the actions of another
Murder = Homicide with premeditation and malice or homicide committed during
the commission of a felony. Note the person committing the homicide need not
be the felon (as in defense of self).
In cases where it applies, yes.
That said, it's amazing at how many ignore the original circumstances
and run rabbit trails on hypothetical, totally different scenarios, to
bolster weak, eGoogglebrain, arguments.
A group of people are standing on a cliff on a dark night. One of them
tells another, "Go ahead and jump off. There's a lake at the bottom."
He does so, falls on to the rocks, and dies. The others in the group
testify in court that this is what happened. The jury is satisfied as to
the veracity of their testimony and convicts the defendant of murder.
Substitute "Break in to that trailer" for "Go ahead and jump." Seems
logical enough to me. Presumably a judge and jury, upon hearing the
evdence and arguments in court, (unlike those of us merely speculating
in a newsgroup) will make the right decision.
When the game is over, the pawn and the king are returned to the same box.

Is that what the guy outside the trailer said??? Or did he say I'll
wait out side while you go into inside "your trailer" to take a piss.
Hey dude! Why are you kicking in your door??? BANG? The friend is
dead and you are up for murder.
Actually I do not believe he has been charged for murder at all, I think
that was suggested by a someone that had heard something that some one
said that oddly the media has not got wind of and yet seems to be common
knowledge only here in this group. ;~)
"Prosecutors have instead charged the intruder's alleged accomplice, 29-
year-old Dustin Stewart, with first-degree murder in the death of his
friend, Justin Shane Martin, 24."
