I hope she doesn't have a dawg.
Or a kid.
Wasn't a visitor to the home shot as well? It's been a while since I read up on it.
No. He was injured by a piece of the wife's skull (while she was holding a baby). Not really shot.
That's it, we need registration and/or a full ban on flying skull fragments.
I concur fully! How long must people be subjected to the risk of flying skull fragments before the government takes action? At the very least, such fragments should be registered. At best, they should be confiscated. No civilian needs skull fragments! They have no sporting purpose whatsoever and, therefore, should be banned!
Where's Sarah when we need her???
Am I correct in my remembrance that the "sniper" was indicted in state court for manslaughter but a federal magistrate dismissed the charges?
There really should have been prosecutions all up the chain of command on that one.
The federale said "He was just doing his job."
He took a head shot on a woman with a baby in her arms. He did not even claim that she was a threat. She did have on an openly carried pistol in a holster.
I guess Lon Horiuchi does not like open carry, huh?
By the way, he claims he was shooting at Kevin Harris (not a legal shoot, either, the guy was running away) and made this perfect head shot on her by accident.
Anybody with any experience should delve a little into the facts and determine for themselves the veracity of his statements.
Eight months later, he was occupying a sniper post at Waco, Texas.
From the federal court opinion.
Is that a legal defense in court? Since when?
Is there US case law precedent on following orders not being a defense?
I know the war crimes trial at Nurnberg established that this is not a defense but I don't know if this is binding on US courts... not a lawyer.
So not only did he make an illegal shot he is incompetent as well by his own admission...
Go rape that woman!
There does not have to be case law saying that is not a defense. But I do not know the answer to your question.
It is not a defense under the UCMJ.
Other people have used that excuse before.
I heard it didn't work out too well for them though.
edit: I see GSUsnake made the same reference.
