Fortunately there is surveillance video.

I would suggest Brennan learn his way to school.

Has that been made available yet?

I mean here in Baltimore they are supposed to have it publically available like an hour before the crime is actually committed. ;):lol:

KIDDING...sort of.

From what I have read this is not clear.......did she open the door....or just scream like a banshee.....from behind a close door. Breaking in.... I think not. 

I don't know about California law....but most states consider...even if you open a door....that the are not breaking in till they cross the thresh hold uninvited. 

Further...even if a person does cross the threshold ....if they pivot and run back out the door....that doesn't allow you to take a shot at them. 

Any prosecutor worth there salt has a slam dunk on this one. 

This happened in Michigan, so I don't know what California law has to do with it.

I think Brennan and his mother have seen it, but I don't think it's been released to the public.  This is not a police-involved shooting, so there is no reason to release the video.

From whom did they obtain the video?

On a map, it looks like this happened about 2.7 miles from his high school.  Did he live near where this happened?

Not much diversity in Rochester Hills and that likely played a role.

Is it the lack of diversity or is it the attitude and wickedness of those whites?

it’s like a white saying “ if the blacks didn’t move into our neighborhood then their son wouldn’t have been shot”

As if it wasn’t the wickedness of the person who did the shooting.

Trayvon Martin lived in the neighborhood where he was shot.

Not making any judgment here ... just asking questions.

 

FWIW, Trayvon Martin was the victim ... IMHO.

Lack of diversity can often exacerbate racism, at least that's been my experience.

As charged, the shooter, if convicted, could face life in prison.

Again is it the lack of diversity or the wickedness racists already have in their minds?

Being new to the area and usually riding a bus one could understand.

If I break down in a area I'm not familiar with I'm not knocking on doors and it doesn't matter if it's a black or white neighborhood. I don't trust anyone to bother them black or white.  I'd rather look for a store to get help. Over 30 years ago I remember a kid getting shot killed walking through someones yard where I grew up and it was white on white. Yes it was wrong shooting at the kid. Glad he didn't hit him.

This kind of people gets little attention. There are many more who do the right thing but it's not on the almighty video. Thanks for posting.

If he wasn't, someone likely assumed he must have been to create another angle to the story.

Then it was run with from there

He was visiting there or staying temporarily.  That was not his home.
