How the system ought to work

(Via The High Road)

The headline reads:

Jury clears homeowner who took cop for intruder

A jury took less than 30 minutes to determine a homeowner did no wrong when he shot a police officer two years ago.


This is almost a month old, but I just found it on THR tonight. I'm glad the Mr. Barcia has been found innocent, even though the last two years of his life have been wasted by the criminal justice system.

I'm also glad the cop was OK. Hopefully, he learned a cheap lesson--stupidity is often fatal.
