Re: true justice
We'll just agree to have different points of view. From my experience, crackheads and crankheads get very psychotic and irrational with chronic use. Potheads get mellow. I have never seen someone high on marijuana go out picking fights unless the pot is supplemented by methamphetamine or cocaine. Marijuana is really a pretty benign substance when compared to alcohol, cocaine, or methamphetamine.
My position is that I'm willing to kill another human being if necessary to protect myself or others. You may be also, but I get the impression that you would be inclined to attempt to "reason" with the fellow first. That's your choice. In doing so, you'll give Mr. Crackhead an opportunity to take you out.
In Sumner county where this occurred, the population is quite sparse. Help is not just around the corner. If you show up on someone elses property, it is unwise to go anywhere but right to the front door. You get caught sneeking into the barn and most likely you'll be at the business end of a weapon. Make a verbal threat to kill someone and you can get shot with no charges filed.
Now the fact that Mr. crackhead has a drug abuse history does not legally figure into the equation. It does however show his pre-disposition to stupidity. It's not the farmer's fault. Mr Crackhead did several stupid things in a row and it got him killed. I imagine the farmer feels bad about it, but at least he's still alive and not a dead victim. let's keep in mind that Mr. Crackhead is not a victim, he's a dead suspect. And as I used to say..... nothing further from reporting officer at this time.
