Goblin Down

From Fox News Dallas, we get this heartwarming tale of a long-time criminal, 33, named Deyfon Pipkins, tried to climb in a window of a home.  The elderly owner inside saw him and fired one shot, ending Deyfon's criminal career.

As the police do, they came by,  gathered the corpse, then went to notify Deyfon's family of his timely demise.  It seems that the family is upset though, because they showed up at the scene.
He could have used a warning," Lakesha Thompson, Pipkins' sister-in-law, said. "He could have let him know that he did have a gun on his property and he would use it in self-defense."
That's certainly true, Lakesha.  He could also have invited him in and gave him a beer, then helped him cart the TV out to the curb.  Unfortunately for Deyfon, Texas is a Castle Doctrine state, and the homeowner chose to shoot Deyfon, as it is right and proper to do.  For that matter, Lakesha, you could have warned Deyfon "Deyfon, you need to quit breakin' into those peoples houses and stealin' they stuff.  Someone is goin' to pop a cap in yo' ass!" which is just exactly what happened.  It's your fault, Lakesha, for not warning Deyfon.

This bunch sounds like a bunch of damned Democrats to me.

I'm thinking probably voted more than once.

Always got to be somebody else's fault, somebody else's money, somebody else's responsibility. Life is just so much easier that way.
