Until we can eliminate any innocent men/women being put to death, capital punishment should not exist!
A man has a right and an obligation to protect his home and his family. Had anyone bust into my house, my husband would have been on him like a fly on ****...cop or no cop. If this man is a heavy sleeper, he would never have heard them announce themselves before
going into the house...my husband wouldn't hear that. He sleeps like a rock. And not to mention, being woke out of a dead sleep, you tend to be groggy. They should have been yelling "Police! Come out with your hands up." while in the house or something like that. Not to mention, what the f*** were they doing a raid at midnight for? Was there a reason to do that to a man with an 18 month old infant?
Perhaps he should serve time for killing a man...but die for protecting his baby? That is just about the worst thing I ever heard.
Would a cop have gotten the death penalty for shooting and killing Mayes had Mayes broken into his house? Would he even have gone to prision?
