    Daaaauuuum. Self-defence or murder?

    "US man fatally shoots masked teen outside neighbour's home, learns it's his son"

    Popular teacher fatally shoots masked teen outside neighbour's home, discovers it was his son

    I can't find it on CBC\CNN, but there are many sources if you look around.

    Srsly, does this go down as self-defence or murder? I've always disagreed with the law which permits home-owners to kill 'invaders' (I don't believe one person should be judge jury and execitioner [another thing I disagree with.])



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    Murder.

    If the kid is going into a neighbors house you have no right to shoot them but warn them and call 911.

    I agree. However, that isn't what the USA laws state.

    In Canada, you aren't allowed to kill invaders unless you are in immediate threat for your life. (I.e you can't shoot them for stealing all your shit.) You are allowed to do things like a citizens arrest though (but those are actually very difficult to do legally. You have to tell them they are under citizens arrest, explain why etc...)

    To rephrase the question, in this particular state and country, do you think this is classified as murder.

    Why would the teen be wearing a mask and shit while holding knife outside his own auntie house?

    It is self defense because his son ran at him with a knife Dafuq?

    US Laws state that if someone's on your property you have the right to "defend" it. Meaning; kill them.

    At least that's what I thought it was. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    ikr wtf?

    I think the kid was just fucking with his dad or something. One way or another, it is a pretty goddamn dangerous prank.

    You are correct but you are also wrong a small detail.

    The teen aka his son was not on there lawn, he was on the neighbor aka the auntie lawn.

    The auntie called the teens father saying someone Might be breaking in and the father came and shot him because the kid ran at his father with a knife.

    However sad it is, it is justified. Imagine yourself in the situation.. would you just stand there and let anyone including your son attack you with a knife.

    That is true but he did not know it was his son.
