I wrote about Detroit homeowner Tigh Croff who found a burglar in his house, chased him down the neighborhood, killed him and was charged with second-degree murder.
It seems that the Jury dealocked and the judge declared a mistrial. Prosecution will have anther round at Mr, Croff and there are accusations that the judge acted improperly. Anyway, I am sure Mr. Croff wishes he would just let the guy run to whatever little hole he crawled out of from.
Ego unchecked, not a good counselor.
One thought on “Ego unchecked = Trouble (Cont.)”
I am somewhat doubtful that I’d convict him of murder. Manslaughter is perhaps more appropriate. The answer, though, isn’t to “let the guy run to whatever hole he crawled out from”. Why, so he can victimize someone else?
If a thief breaks into someone’s home, he’s got to be fully aware that he may be confronted by the homeowner and may have to harm the homeowner in order to continue stealing &/or escape. The thief took his chances….and lost. Mr. Croff wouldn’t have even made the news had he been the victim.
