    Well, that's more of a social problem not a genetic one, I think. If he were born into an upperc lass family, sure he may have turned out the same way but most likely not. Poverty breeds crime.

    Exactly! To see a scary collection of social pathologies, visit an elite prep school. The difference is that they can feed their vices without turning to petty crime.

    No, instead they swindle stockholders out of millions and screw employees out of their entire retirement funds just because they can. "Corporate ethics" is an oxymoron.

    As for the incident that spawned this post, there's absolutely no way to know whether it was justified. The demeanor and threats used against the old man could have been mild to severe, and it's conceivable that he did seriously believe his life was in danger. Or he could have just over-reacted. Without very particular details, such as precisely what the robbers said and did word-for-word, anything we postulate is mere speculation.

    The Ex-Marine was not charged with a crime by the Broward Sherriffs Department. That should answer the above question.

    It doesn't. Maybe it was justified, or maybe there wasn't enough, if any, evidence to convict, or maybe the sheriff's department wasn't going to charge an ex-marine for such a shooting. Or maybe something else. We'll never know.

    This weekend in Hartford, police chased a 22 year old into a building and the guy was later found dead of head injuries on the pavement below a 3rd floor window. Sunday's paper quoted the police saying he must have fallen while trying to get away. As expected, Monday's paper quoted people from the neighborhood saying they saw police push him out. Both sides might believe what they're saying.

    Of course it does not answer the question. It could just show that the sheriff's department does not know exactly what went down there either.
    that makes no logic
