One Dead… here’s the video:

When Raul Rodriguez went to tell his neighbors to turn down the music at a May 2010 party, he took a flashlight, a video camera and a gun. At his murder trial Tuesday, his attorney said the video recording proved Rodriguez acted in self-defense when he shot three men, one fatally.

Houston, TX – “No we ain’t gotta keep down Sheeeit!”  Sure Rodriguez probably started firing when at least one of the guys rushed him at the end of the video.  I’d have to agree with the prosecutors on this one though that he had ample opportunity to just swallow his pride and go back in his house.  When you stick around telling a bunch of younger drunk guys that you “might” have to shoot them, sure they are going to get pissed off.  Sure enough he was found guilty.

Looks like Raul Rodriguez basically screwed himself over.  That video, which he obviously initially planned on taking for his protection was his downfall.

Thoughts?

“That was considered a terroristic threat because the teacher feared for her life,” Kristin Trostle said.

What is this world coming to?

If an person is “threatened” by some kid making a gun with their finger, then they should be the ones taking a break and getting some help.  I can’t even believe that the school’s code of conduct is supporting the teacher in this ridiculous claim.

As much as I poke fun at the UK.. If there is even a slight chance that this incident screws up this honor roll girl’s future, there is really something wrong with our country.
