Renisha McBride Autopsy Shows Death Ruled A Homicide, 19-Year-Old Shot In Face

“I completely agree. The homeowner behaved completely irrationally. And until these random shooters start getting arrested, sent to trial, convicted and sent to prison, these kinds of shootings will continue.

We've had the experience of a person ringing our doorbell at 4am. We went down and tried to talk to him. It was clear he was very drunk, and while he didn't try to come in, he wouldn't go away either and kept ringing our doorbell. We told him we'd call the cops, and, when he didn't leave, we did. I was stunned that the kid didn't leave at that point; maybe he was so drunk he didn't understand what I said.

The cop did the right thing - she diffused the situation. She got the kid to talk to her, found out where he lived and took him home. No one got hurt or even arrested. This is the way it's supposed to be - if you can't fix a situation yourself, call the cops to help and don't shoot a person who isn't threatening you.”

“I think you need to have similar attitudes but not identical attitudes. But you need to be able to talk about EVERYTHING. If you can't talk about everything, you probably shouldn't get married.

Oh, and ocaptainmycaptain, I was a Republican when my husband and I got married but I definitely got over that. But that was 37 years ago before most Republicans lost their minds.”
