Re: story at http://www.l-e-o.com/content/columbus/2002/01/11/news/0111TANT.htm
I'm outraged that this man was ever charged. A charge of MURDER boggles the
mind. We are unfortunately turning into a nation where elected and appointed
officials, with agendas, are attempting to criminalize self-defense and making
the streets safe for miscreants and sociopaths. The peaceful citizen is to be
victimized by the perp or victimized by a perverted legal system. How many thousands
of dollars has this charade cost the REAL victim? How many TAX dollars have
the perpetrators caused to be spent on their behalf?
In your article, the phrase "defending
his business" appeared, which I believe is inappropriate. The only justification
for use of deadly force is defending one's life or limb, which should have been
the obvious conclusion of police, prosecutor, grand jury, unless they are subject
to an un-American standard, a double-standard. (What would ANY of the aforementioned
do in such a situation? Do none of them have any older family members? Statistics
prove that many people will/have some day face life-threatening situations.
What were they thinking?) Agenda trumps reason. Agenda trumps logic. Racial
hatred/white guilt The facts were, a Senior Citizen, inside his business, was
being assaulted (threatened) by multiple younger attackers, with the ability
to eminently carry out the threat of Tant's injury or death.
