  •  there are several states with gun laws... (1+ / 0-)

    the one in texas allowed Joe Horn to get away with murder while he was on the phone with 911.  Hell on the tape he says before he even goes outside he is going to kill them.  Then he shoots them in the back and still got off.   So there is one case law.  I am no lawyer but castle doctrine extends to neighbors property in some states... if this is hte case in Georgia then it was legal for them to take action IF A CRIME was being committed, which obviously there was no crime.  But defense for gun toting rednecks could say "well the sheriff thought there was a crime... if the sheriff can't know the difference how can a lay person be expected to?"

    Not saying they shouldn't pursue.  I think they should go civil though also so they can move out of that GD neighborhood and in to a better, more progressive enclave in the ATL area.  Never pass up the opportunity to get some money from idiots who commit crimes on tax payer dollar.

    •  The laws, as written, do not generally permit this (2+ / 0-)

      The failure of juries and judges to apply the law is not necessarily a fault of the law per se.
