A Detroit jury delivered its verdict against Theodore Wafer, 55, on the second day of deliberations.

You can't shoot someone for beating on your door.

You don't shoot through an outside door unless you're being shot at.

The man shot an unarmed woman thru a locked screen door. I'm surprised the jury took as long as they did. If it were me, (Yes, I'd have been armed too, in case things escalated), I wouldn't have opened the entry door. I can yell thru it. A call to 911, the suburb in question has a pretty good response time. Had he done that, he'd be sleeping in his own bed tonight, not at the state's expense.

My son used to deliver pizzas. He delivered a pizza to a remote farmhouse one night that housed several hired hands. It was about 2000. My son knocks on the door and when the door swings open there is a shot gun pointed at his head. Not everyone in the house knew an occupant had ordered a pizza. When my son told me that story I went CRAZY!!! Thank God the ignorant ass didn't pull the trigger.

From the article...

A white suburban Detroit homeowner was found guilty on Thursday...

Gotta amp up the racial issue to sell papers I guess....

Was the woman shot black?

This situation stresses "KNOW YOUR TARGET". Randomly shooting is never a good idea.
