So the media is still obsessing over the self-defense shooting in Georgia, which is probably a good thing in the long run. Police report reveals new details about scene where teens were killed in shootout with homeowner.
Three teens, armed with a Glock pistol, and with their faces covered, suffered a breakdown of the victim-selection process. The three were killed when the homeowner – or the son of the homeowner, reports have been conflicting – opened fire with a semiautomatic rifle. (And they refuse to characterize it as an assault weapon, even though a neighbor described it that way.)
On Wednesday, more than 300 hundred people returned to the very spot to hold a vigil, calling for healing. There were families and a community trying to understand what happened – as they grieve.
What happened? Three young men who didn’t learn that actions have consequences, or that stealing is wrong, because actually teaching stuff from the Judeo-Christian tradition would be oppressive. Or something. “Live by the sword; die by the sword.”
