Why is this always the narrative when this happens?

Perhaps you should look into your own narrative Daniel


My narrative is just fine, no idea what you're talking about.

Good boy, dindu nuffin, except B&E.

“You have to look at it from every child’s point of view that was raised in the hood,” said Harris. “You have to understand… how he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point-of-view.”


He could have gotten a job.
My father came to America at the age of 20 and was able to move head by working hard and never giving up. He worked as a landscaper and later as mechanic. We don't have lots of money but we can sleep good at night knowing that we've gotten what we have through honest work.

She rushed home to confront him herself though. There's self defense and then there's vigilantism. Also, the article straight up states he was leaving the home when he was confronted.

home intrusion. use of gun was justified (self-defense) harsh, but true. some people might complain that the kid did not pose a thread, but those people likely never experienced home intrusion, burglary, theft, etc.


She was not home at the time. She went home after her security system alerted her to a break in. So she was looking for and found a confrontation. When she found him he was leaving through the window. Its doubtful he would climb back IN to the house through the window to confront an armed homeowner inside. So she probably caught him outside as he was leaving and confronted him.

That's not self defense and it doesn't matter fuck all what the kid's story is one way or another because the penalty for burglary is not death.

Boiiiii, I was raised in the hood too, I don't need to rob to get my cash. There's plenty of people from the hood who got cash in ways that don't involve booking/robbing people, lmao.

This looks like a case where both parties did something wrong. Obviously the kid shouldn't have been breaking into someone's house and robbing them. However, from this one article, it looks like the women who shot him was pursuing him when he was trying to run away even though she had already alerted the police. At that point, it's not self defense. The family can easily press charges against her if this is indeed the way it played out. She pretty much pulled a Zimmerman, only in this case the person she shot was actually committing a crime. Still doesn't excuse her confronting and killing a fleeing suspect.

I've been robbed. Came home from work and found my garage open and a car missing. I know I should have called the police and stayed in my car and waited before entering but I can tell you when you are faced with someone violating your space, you don't think as rationally as you might imagine. I was lucky they were gone because I ran in like a mad man surveying the damage. Who knows what could have happened had they still been there. I'd probably not be here today. They looted me good but it wasn't the stuff missing that affects you as much as the violation of them being there and the fear of them returning. This lady probably was not in a good state of mind at the time. I'm not saying the punishment fit the crime here but when you invade someone's home, this is the kind of outcome you risk.

No sympathy from me. Although the lady shooting him when he was obviously leaving is probably not okay, that is the situation you put yourself into when you decide to be thieving scum.

I'm kind of wondering why a tech student with a "good future" would be breaking and entering and trying to steal someone's sh!t...

Both sides are wrong. Kid should not have stolen, took a risk breaking into a stranger's home. Woman overreacted. Shouldn't shoot/kill someone unless your life is in danger. Pretty simple. It's a tragic story.

I personally can't see charging the woman with a crime, but hopefully she gets rid of the gun. Clearly she's not level headed enough to own one.

Something people don't realize that are saying "she was looking for a confrontation because she raced home when her home alarm went off"

A very large amount of alarms that go off are in fact false alarms. It's a fact, police usually don't even respond to them unless someone calls it in as an actual break-in. So it is very possible she was just going home to reset the alarm and was surprised to find an actual intruder. Main point is, you can't just assume she was looking to shoot someone, the article doesn't give enough details to make any judgements to be honest.

on one hand its his fault for robbing someones house....on the other if they shot without knowing he was a threat or not it's kind of wrong and way to far to go :/

I feel mixed on this because the shooter is in the right but still i feel its a bit of an over reaction to shoot a robber who isn't coming at you with a weapon but that's just me

That being said i live in a country without guns so i have a knife i keep with me to stab and kill any intruder who tries to harm me so maybe i shouldn't be saying she overreacted
