Chicago, Chicago, the dunderhead town!
An 80-year-old man (black) shot a teenage burglar (black) inside his home. The Chicago police arrested the man. He is being charged with a felony.
The burglar is also being charged.
This is law and order in 2012 in Chicago.
The police forces in America want a monopoly of gun ownership. They want to be the citizen’s sole source of defense against criminals. This puts the police in charge.
The idea that a man in his own home has a right to use a gun to defend himself is appalling to modern criminology.
If the police bring him to trial, it’s clear what the jury will decide. The man will go free.
I think the police are going through the motions by arresting him. If the D.A. thinks he can get a jury to convict, then he is dumber than dirt. The juries are filled with law-abiding citizens who are fed up with the criminal justice system, which protects criminals and keeps citizens at their mercy.
