Man charged with manslaughter for shooting armed robber

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

He'll probably get off, but the indictment should never been brought in the first place.

No one exercises judgment in this maze of bureaucracy called government. It's a mindset foisted on society by fear of litigation, of being sued because rules weren't followed. There's a dead body so someone must pay.

In Houston a father shot and killed a 17-year-old boy he found in his daughter's bedroom under more ambiguous circumstances then this NY case and even he, prosecutors said, will not be charged.

In New York, as in Britain, self-defense is illegal.
