Re: “Drunken Confusion Leads to Fickle Hill Shooting

Obviously he made a mistake. How many of you haven't had too much to drink and ended up doing something stupid? He shouldn't have been shot for what he did.

And returning to what you perceive to be a dangerous situation and then shooting the person does not constitute self defense. If you were really in danger, you wouldn't have returned, would you?

The guy who shot him wasn't even on his own property, so defense of property doesn't apply.

Re: “Drunken Confusion Leads to Fickle Hill Shooting

Regarding castle law:

1- California's law provides that deadly force may be justified in cases "when the actor reasonably fears imminent peril of death or serious bodily harm to himself or another." Also, People v.s. Ceballos found burglaries which don't "reasonably create a fear of great bodily harm" are not sufficient cause for use of deadly force.

A drunk, UNARMED guy on your couch does not pose imminent danger of death or serious bodily harm. He was drunk, he made a mistake. Let the cops deal with it.

2: The NEIGHBOR who shot the drunk guy doesn't even live there. How can you invoke castle law if it isn't even your castle?!

That law does not provide a blanket defense that you can use to justify attempted murder. The circumstances of the incident must meet certain conditions for castle law to be used as an adequate defense, and it looks to me like none of those conditions apply here.

It doesn't matter that he was drunk. It doesn't matter that he mistakenly walked into the wrong house. He posed no real threat, and did NOT deserve to be shot.

I only hope that the District Attorney takes a serious look at this case and calls for the arrest of the shooter and charges him with attempted murder. If you feel the same, you should start calling Gallegos' office and ask why no one has been charged yet.

Re: “Drunken Confusion Leads to Fickle Hill Shooting

Please remember this man has a family and friends who love him. The trash talking is unnecessary and disrespectful. He is fighting for his life in the ICU right now. If it was your father/brother/son, you wouldn't appreciate the b.s. comments. Have some respect.

Re: “It's a Walmart...Or Is It? [Updated]

Regardless of which megastore it is, it doesn't bode well that the plans are so secretive. If it's going to be such a great thing for the local community and economy, why be so shady?!
