Yes... but every State I'm aware of has much more severe and often "mandatory" penalties if the decease happens to be a Police Officer... much like hate crime legislation...

I'm not advocating harming Officers, but, a homicide should be a homicide... PERIOD... and there should be no additional considerations beyond the facts of the case.

IMHO... "hate crime" mentality combined with the way the media portrayed the Martin/Zimmerman case, is the only reason Zimmerman is on trial.

From reading other posts having a go at the UK self defence laws, I assumed that this type of thing would not happen in America. Its
a warning know the laws regarding using lethal force in the state you are in.

Doing similar here would not necessarily be charged.

Im sure California is hardly the America people are referring to when they contrast USA and UK laws.

Texas isn't the only state that thinks its it's own republic,but at least they don't push their ideals on everyone else like kommiefornia

The point I have been trying to make for years is there is no realistic need for any restriction on any individual weapons (non crew served). Every misuse of a weapon is already illegal in every jurisdiction in the USA!!!! This a 'people' problem, not a 'machine' problem!

The taking of a human life is a homicide. Criminal Homicide is a different story. Of course they are investigating it. That is their job. If a misguided DA takes the case, THAT is a travesty

What about when its a drunk disoriented state police officer trying to break down your door? This guy was lucky he did this where he did and not out here in the boonies! People need to know, stupid can get you killed real quick!

NY State... so I'd assume there considering charges against the homeowner for "Assaulting a Police Officer".

He was so drunk he was confused as to which apartment he was "squatting" in. What a fine father figure for his children to look up to. It's to bad he was breeding before he got wacked.

Come on!!!!!!! I don't usually disagree with you guys, it is obvious that they are looking at charges against the officer and not the homeowner. Please don't create an issue where none exist!
