    So, wait until you're shot, or stabbed before defending yourself?

    Brilliant.

    The UK is working on adding age to the list of hate crimes.
    Do really think we should stand around to see if they are going to kill or beat us? Unbelievable.
    If you want more videos, I can post many more.

    All the others were much older. I doubt this child was the ring leader

    What child. He's dead. Calling him a child doesn't change the fact that he was a thug. Call him whatever you want - he's still dead.
    If the dumb ass child would have stayed home with his mommy, he'd be alive.
    Did you find the part in the story that says he was "dragged" along.

    When you stand before God on the day of reckoning make sure you tell him you killed a person because he was absconding with your belongings; just make sure it doesn't ruffle God's feathers.

    A child that is heading down the road of crime and was not taught to show respect for others? $0.00.

    Or maybe you are talking about the potential child in the womb?

    People who live outside the US, or who live physically in the US but mentally in la-la land, may not understand the reality of life in places like Chicago.
    By the time you're 14 in these jungles, you've seen everything and are willing to do anything.

    Have a look at this poor child:
    [​IMG]
    [SOURCE]
    We can take a lesson from George Orwell here, about the use and mis-use of language.

    When we hear the word 'child', we think of Christopher Robin of Winnie-the-Pooh, or Alice in Wonderland.

    Or we think of the poor African children, starved and sexually abused and shot by various gangs of brutal savages, some from 'the government' and others not, being helped by Doctors Without Borders.
    [​IMG]

    We don't think of the German children conscripted to fight for Hitler, now conveniently presented as unwilling innocents but probably, at least some of them,
    fanatical Hitler Youth. We don't think of Mr Sandifer above. We think everyone is basically like us, like our children.
    [​IMG]

    Is it a tragedy? Of course it is. If this kid -- any of these kids -- had been taken away immediately at birth from their drugged-up sluts of mothers, and raised by any married couple on this Forum, they would grow up as normal, decent human beings. They would even have a good chance of that if they were raised in orphanages.

    But can you imagine the outcry, were this to be proposed? The shrieks of "racism!" The screams of "Cultural Genocide!! Our Leftists would fight to the death to make sure these children were raised in their original, authentic environment.

    So it will go on. Thank goodness this poor man owned a gun. Everyone with any sense of self-preservation should do likewise.

    But look where we're going. The Michael Browns will be praised by the Democrats -- he set an example, after all, not being a gun-owner and having to try to borrow the policeman's gun when he needed one -- your guns will be confiscated. The traditional culture of normality, respect for tradition, American history -- will be eroded away. It's not possible to envision the world that's coming. Even the word 'Dystopia' brings up an image from Bladerunner, not the excrement and needle-covered sidewalks of San Francisco with recently-released butter-fingered illegal immigrants "accidentally" killing tourists.

    It's not going to get better. It's not even going to stay the same
    We've got to get out.

    Like when it's too late and they carry out that intent? Are you supposed to be the quicker draw?

    How do you know that? How would he know that? People get shot and attacked and even killed by buglers especially those subject to the three time loser laws all the time.

    Here's a hint, don't break into to other peoples homes, it can have serious health consequences to you.

    Proves nothing

    Do you not think there was violence in the England of Dickens?

    English AND Australian law has always maintained that response to perceived threat MUST be appropriate to the threat. In other words you cannot shoot someone stealing your car because they are not threatening you directly

    ,If you embrace the thug life you gotta accept you may get the thugs death, Maybey if the little sociopath with the knife had learned that early enough he may have avoided his fate. But screw the law abiding right? we just all gotta trust the criminal breaking into our property to not be in a killing mood lol.

    He didn't value his own life did he? Reminds me of this story -

    Relatives of a teenaged home invader who was killed by a homeowner while seemingly exiting the home he had broken into are asking observers to consider the mentality of children “raised in the hood.”
    Seemingly justifying her relative’s commission of burglary, Johnson’s cousin Nautika Harris suggested it was the only way through which he could obtain money.

    “You have to understand, you have to look at it from a child's point of view that was raised in the hood. How he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school?" asked Harris.

    Peer pressure is not an excuse. The kid still had choices. Unless he was bound and physically "dragged along", then he chose to be there himself.

    Sure, people can turn their lives around and many do. However, should something bad happen to them because of their own actions or choices, there is nobody to blame but themselves. It is not the fault of the 75 year old man that this child was shot. It it the fault of the 14 year old and his friends from the choices they made. Should they survive their stupid decisions and turn their lives around, then they should be praised. However, until they do make that choice to turn their life around, there is little worth to be found.
